Lord, we pray not only for ourselves, but also for all those who are facing the same struggles. May they find comfort in Your loving arms and strength in their faith. We lift up our families, trusting that You will provide for their needs as well. Help us to be a support and encouragement to one another as we navigate through this difficult time.

We place our trust in You, knowing that You are a faithful and loving God. Help us to remember that Your plans for us are plans for good, to give us a hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). In this journey, may we grow closer to You, becoming more dependent on Your love and provision.

Heavenly Father,

I come before you today, humbly, with a heavy heart, seeking deliverance from the spiritual bondage that surrounds me. Your Word in Romans 8:15 assures me that I have not received a spirit of slavery, but of adoption as your beloved child. I cling to this promise, Lord, knowing that in Christ I find true freedom.

I surrender my doubts, my insecurities, and my fears, knowing that you are my rock, my fortress, and my deliverer.

In conclusion, I offer my deepest gratitude to you, God, for your unwavering love and unending grace. I thank you, God the Father, for the gift of salvation and the freedom I find in your Son, Jesus Christ. I thank you, Holy Spirit, for your guidance and comfort in times of struggle. I am eternally grateful for your presence in my life.
