Prayer For Confidence In Self

Dear God, you know my heart and you know that I love you. I'm trying to do my best to follow after you, but sometimes I get tripped up. Sometimes I lose focus. Sometimes I forget who I am in you and start looking to the world to tell me who I am. On the days when my confidence is fading fast, build me up again. Remind me of the simple truth that confidence can only be found in chasing after you. I can walk around confident knowing I am loved. I can walk around confident knowing I am enough. I can live knowing I have been rescued, free and called to do great things. Help me remember these things, wonderful Father. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

o Heavenly Father, You created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Amen.

Dear Lord, You have commanded me to be strong and courageous. You have told me not to be afraid; not to be discouraged, for you are always with me wherever I go. Remind me of this when I feel disheartened about my ability to complete the tasks that you've set for me and to become the person you want me to be. Amen.

Dear Lord, Your grace is sufficient for me, your power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong. Amen.

Dear God, Please help me to not think of myself more highly than I ought, but rather think of myself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith that you have distributed to me. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. Help me identify my gift, whatever it may be, and use it to your glory. Amen.

Lord, true source of light and wisdom
Let a ray of Your brilliance
Penetrate my understanding
Grant me a retentive memory
And the ability to grasp things
Correctly and completely.
Let me be convincing in my explanations
Steadfast and unwavering in my presentations
Give me Your confidence
To trust my God-given capabilities.
Help me with each task at hand
Guide me through its completion.

Heavenly Father,

Thank you for revealing to me that I am imprisoning myself by not seeing the value and worth in your creation of me.

Forgive me, Lord, for living in such a way that caused me to place more importance on the opinion of others and myself.

I have doubted my ability and held myself back from being the person you desire me to be.

I am under the bondage of this doubt and pray that you would release me and give me victory over it.

It has robbed me of peace and joy in my life and has prevented me from living life to the fullest as a child of yours.

Help me to have compassion towards myself and to see that what I perceive as weaknesses, are, in fact, blessings.

May I use those blessings to help others who may also be held down by the same untruth that I have been under.

Lord, help me to see myself through your eyes and to see the beauty and person as a whole that you have created. You don't make mistakes, Lord.

Please help me to value myself over anything of this world, whether it be what others think, or earthly possessions.

I don't want to live up to what I think people expect of me; I want to live up to what you desire me to be.

Give me the strength to overcome and to see that I am valued. Help me to accept who I am and to have confidence in my identity through you.

I pray these things in Jesus' name, Amen.

Oh Father,

Thank you Lord that I am a daughter (son) of a king loved and cherished, and my inheritance is eternal goodness.

So today I wear my crown like a princess (prince). Full of humility, for I do not earn this honour, I simply choose to live in it. I place this prize upon my head, a jewel already paid for, this symbol of belonging. I feel the grace of God within my heart, grace that enables me to try hard and not to fear failure. Grace that calls me to stay true to my values and visions, but not to be overwhelmed by them. Grace to walk tall, following in your footsteps.

Thank you Lord, for I am daughter (son) of the king, a princess/prince with a crown of jewels, and a child with a loving heavenly Father.
