Prayer of Freedom

I did not write this, but the "Free of Bulimia" Christian forum sends it out once per month to all of its members. It is a powerful reminder of who we are in Christ, and what He has done for us! Make this New Year 2010 your personal "Year of Jubilee" - the year you will fully surrender your food addiction to God and walk in total freedom.

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the power of Your Word, that it brings life and liberty. Your Word says that confession is made unto salvation, deliverance, preservation, safety, healing, peace and spiritual prosperity (Romans 10:10). In the name, power and the blood of Jesus Christ, I boldly decree I am free! Free from anything that would hinder my walk with You. I am free from anything that would stop Your abundant life from operating in my life. As I declare Your word, it will not return to You void but it will accomplish that which You desire. You desire that I walk in freedom. You desire that I am restored and whole. I know that within the promise of Your word is the power to fulfill Your word. I thank You Father that You watch over Your word to perform it. (Isaiah 55:11) Father I give You all the glory and praise for the work You are doing and are going to do in my life.

In Jesus name I boldly declare that I will standfast in the liberty by which Christ has made me free and I will not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage (Galatians 5:1) Father, I thank You because You delivered me from the power of darkness and conveyed me into the kingdom of the Son of Your love. I’ve been delivered from lack, depression, oppression, hopelessness, despair, eating disorders and everything associated with the power of darkness. In Jesus Christ I have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of all my sins (Colossians 3:13, 14). In the name of Jesus, I boldly declare sin shall no longer exert dominion over me because I am not under the law but I am under grace as subjects of God’s favor and mercy (Romans 6:14) Your Spirit lives within me and where Your Spirit is, there is liberty (2 Cor 3:17). I boldly declare that I walk in liberty for I seek Your precepts (Psalm 119:45) I walk in the Spirit and I do not fulfill the lusts of the flesh in
Jesus name.

As Your child I am led by Your Spirit. I did not receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but I received the Spirit of adoption by Who I cry out Abba Father. I thank You that Your Spirit bears witness, with my spirit that I am Your child and I am Your heir (Romans 8:14-17). Only because of this divine interaction can I cry out with everything within me “You are my Father.” Your Word says that You love with an everlasting love; therefore with loving-kindness You have drawn me. I thank You for Your love that never fails. Thank You for drawing me closer to You. You also said again You will build me and I shall be rebuilt. I will be adorned and go forth in the dances of those who rejoice. (Jer. 31:3,4 ) I thank You for building and rebuilding me, and that You are always working in me. Thank You for loving me too much to leave me the way I am. I trust You and the love You have for me. I know it’s because of Your great love that You set me free. May I go forth with
that holy joy and dance the dances of those who rejoice.

I recognize that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and I am not my own. I was bought with the shed blood of Jesus Christ. I will glorify You in my body and my spirit for I am Yours! (1 Corinthians 6:19,20) In the name of Jesus, I discipline my body and bring it into subjection so I do not become disqualified when I share the gospel (1 Cor. 9:27) I thank You Father that You help me achieve balance in every area of my life, and You give me wisdom in all things. I give You thanks and praise because You always lead me in triumph (2 Cor 2:14).

Father, when I face temptation, I thank You that You are faithful. You will not allow me to be tempted beyond what I am able, but with the temptation, You will also make the way of escape, that I may be able to bear it. I will flee idolatry in Jesus name! (1 Cor 10:13) I pray that in every temptation I not only see the way of escape You prepared, but that I will take it. I know You always give the victory through my Lord Jesus Christ. I am steadfast, immovable, and always abounding in the work of the Lord (1 Cor 15:57,58) Father, Your word says that You are also able to save to the uttermost those who come to You through Jesus since He always lives to make intercession for them (Heb 7:25). Father, I come to You through Your Son Jesus Christ. He ever lives to make intercession for me. Thank You for saving me in every temptation I face. I am established in righteousness, I am far from oppression for I do not fear; and from terror, for it shall not come near me In Jesus name! (Is 54:14) Father, thank You for keeping me far from oppression and terror. I am confident with all of my heart Lord that You began a good work in me. You are faithful to complete that work until the day of Christ’s return (Philippians 1:6) Thank You for loving me and You have once for all loosed and freed me from my sins by the blood of Christ (Revelation 1:5b)

Father when I am tempted to worry that I can’t maintain freedom, help me to lean and rely on You even more. I admit my total dependence on You. I will never attain any amount of freedom unless You are with me.

I know You are able to keep me from stumbling and present me faultless before the presence of Your glory with exceeding joy. Unto You O’ Lord be glory and majesty, dominion and power both now and forever (Jude 24,25) I trust You as my Father for true victory in my life. I am Your child and it is not Your desire for me to be in bondage to anything. Thank You for strengthening me and holding me through each struggle.

Father, Your Word says that It’s for freedom that you set me free (Gal 5:1). I thank You for this freedom. I realize that it’s not just about my own freedom. You set me free to be a witness of Your delivering power. You set me free so freedom can flow through me. I ask You to use every aspect of my life for Your glory and that every captive goes free. I pray that people will see the difference You have made in my life. May they know that You are no respecter of persons and what You have done in me You long to do for them.
Thank you Heavenly Father that You hear the cry of my heart. I thank You for freedom. I am free! I am free! No longer chained and bound! Through the blood of Jesus, freedom I have found!
In Jesus name –amen!
