A Woman’s Freedom

freedom

Heavenly Father,

I no longer want to see myself as an object of sacrifice. I am not a slave for sex, and I am not a tool in Satan’s prison. My oppression has brought me no freedom, and I want to see you deliver me from every form of bondage.

Where I have been oppressed, condemned, and even publicly humiliated, I choose to forgive my oppressors. I turn to Jesus for my own forgiveness, and for allowing myself to become a slave to sin. I take upon myself His own righteousness, so that He can remove all guilt, shame, and condemnation from my life.

Thank you, Jesus, for there is now no condemnation for me, because through You the law of the Spirit who gives life has set me free from the law of sin and death (Romans 8:1-2). Since Jesus has set me free, I am free indeed (John 8:36), and I will speak His Word over my life. His Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path (Psalm 119:105).

I desire to be a woman of purpose, according to your design. May my own beauty not come from outward adornment, but from having a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in your sight (1 Peter 3:4). I am fearfully and wonderfully (Psalm 139:14), and one for whom Jesus has willing died, been buried, and raised again from the dead.

As a follower of Jesus, my new nature declares that the old has gone, and the new has come (2 Corinthians 5:17). I am a woman who will not travel in the folly of charm, nor will I flaunt my own beauty, but I will gladly choose to fear the LORD (Proverbs 31:30). May my legacy be an inspiration to other woman who also desire to follow in the footsteps of Jesus.

Amen.
