Prayer Confessions To Overcome Bitterness
“Father, at times when everything seems so unjust and unfair, the pain of rejection is a lot of times too much for me to bear. There are circumstances in my life that has caused me to feel strife, anger, separation and rejection.
Lord, please help me to let go of all of the bitterness, wrath and resentment that I feel because of circumstances that I feel were unfair to me (and my family). You are the only One Who heals the brokenhearted, and I gladly receive Your anointing that destroys every single yoke of bondage that I find myself in. I receive emotional healing by faith and I thank You, Lord, for giving me the grace to stand firm until the process is complete.
Thank You for sending the Holy Spirit to me and for helping me in all areas of my life, for it is You Who is at work in me, helping me to speak and act according to Your good purposes for my life.
In the mighty Name of Jesus, I willfully choose to forgive those who have wronged me and had caused me great emotional pain. I am now choosing to live a life full of forgiveness because You have chosen to forgive me. By the power of the Holy Spirit, I command all bitterness to go, in the Name of Jesus. I command all rage, anger, slander and all malice to go, in the Name of Jesus.
I desire to be kind, loving and compassionate to others, forgiving them just as Christ has forgiven me. With the help of the Holy Spirit, I make every effort to live in complete peace with man and to be holy, for without holiness, no one will see You, Lord.
I strive to please You so that I do not miss out on Your grace, and declare that no bitter root shall grow within me to cause strife meant to defile me. I will diligently watch and pray that I do not enter into temptation or place a stumbling block in another mans path, causing them to stumble.
I thank You, Father, that You watch over Your Word to perform it and that I can also claim for myself that who the Son sets free is free indeed. I boldly declare that I have overcome resentment and bitterness by the power of the Holy Spirit and by the shed blood of Christ, which enables me to speak the words of my testimony. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.”
