When we have struggled to overcome abuse, sometimes the biggest thing to overcome is the lies we’ve been told about ourselves. Often we’ve been led to believe we were worthless and told the abuse was our fault.
The place to start our healing is in our prayer.
One of the first things I needed to learn, and still need to be reminded of, is that I have a Father in heaven who loves me.
Following is a prayer receiving God’s love and asking for his healing. I hope that it helps you kick start your own prayer to God today.
God Bless you and Keep you, may He encourage your heart and heal you from the inside out.
I thank you that you are a good father. I give you those places in my heart and mind where I might have wrong conceptions of you. Heal those places Lord, and reveal your love for me.
Heavenly Father, Gracious King, help me to see myself as you see me. Heal those places in me where I have struggled with insecurity and untrue thoughts about myself.
I receive your love for me. I declare that I am loved, treasured and cherished by my Father in heaven.
In Jesus name,
