For Emotional Healing

Father, in the name of Jesus, I come to You with a feeling of shame and emotional hurt. I confess my transgressions to You [continually unfolding the past till all is told]. You are faithful and just to forgive me and to cleanse me of all unrighteousness. You are my Hiding Place, and You, Lord, preserve me from trouble. You surround me with songs and shouts of deliverance. I have chosen life. According to Your Word, You saw me while I was being formed in my mother’s womb; and on the authority of Your Word, I was wonderfully made. Now I am Your handiwork, recreated in Christ Jesus.
Father, You have delivered me from the spirit of fear, and I shall not be ashamed. Neither shall I be confounded and depressed. You gave me beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, and the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness that I might be called a tree of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that You might be glorified. I speak out in psalms, hymns, and spiritual songs, offering praise with my voice and making melody with all my heart to You. Just as David did in 1 Samuel 30:6, I encourage myself in You.
I believe in You, Lord, Who raised Jesus from the dead. He was betrayed and put to death because of my misdeeds and was raised to secure my (acquittal), [absolving me from all guilt before You]. Father, You anointed Jesus and sent Him to bind up and heal my broken heart and liberate me from the shame of my youth and the imperfections of my caretakers. In His name, I choose to forgive all those who have wronged me in any way. You will not leave me without support as I complete the forgiveness process. I take comfort and am encouraged and confidently say, “The Lord is my Helper; I will not be seized with alarm…What can man do to me?” (Heb. 13:6 amp).
My spirit is Your candle, Lord, searching all the inmost parts of my being, and the Holy Spirit leads me into all truth. When reality exposes shame and emotional pain, I remember that the sufferings of this present life are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to me and in me and for me and conferred on me! The chastisement [needful to obtain] my peace and well-being was upon Jesus, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him, I was healed and made whole. As Your child, Father, I have a joyful and confident hope of eternal salvation. This hope will never disappoint, delude, or shame me, for Your love has been poured out in my heart through the Holy Spirit Who has been given to me.
In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
