Prayer to Repent of Judgements and Bitterness
Towards the Lord
"Lord, I was deeply hurt when ______ (examples:
"my mother died of cancer," "my father abandoned us,"
"my brother molested me." Describe the details of the situation,
including the helplessness and powerlessness talk about it
until it feels emotionally connected), and it feels like You
have wronged me by _____ (examples: "not being with me in a way
that I could perceive/receive," "allowing these things
to happen," "not rescuing me"). I know it is deception
to believe that You have wronged me, but it feels so true. I ______ (describe
your judgments and bitterness. For example "I hate You and judge
You for not protecting me. There is no excuse for your failure to
protect me. I feel like I would take better care of my children if I
were You, etc." Talk about it until it feels emotionally connected).
"I acknowledge that I have these judgments and bitterness
towards You as a way to protect myself from the painful emotions especially
from feelings of powerlessness and helplessness. I do want protection
from situations where I am hurt, powerless, and helpless, but I don't want
this judgment, condemnation, self-righteousness and bitterness to hinder
my relationship with You or my healing, and I am ready to release and renounce
this attempt to use judgment and bitterness to protect myself. I ask for
Your protection, and also for the discernment and grace to participate in
Your plans for my care. I accept that You don't guarantee that I will never
be hurt, powerless, and helpless, and I ask You for the grace and strength
to be faithful to You in whatever You choose to allow. Help me to stand
straight in my honest pain when I am hurt, powerless, and helpless.
"I confess these judgments and bitterness towards
You as sin. I ask Your forgiveness for these judgments and bitterness towards
You. I renounce these judgments and bitterness towards you. I acknowledge
that I cannot change my own heart and mind regarding these judgments and
bitterness towards You, so I ask You to give me true repentance I
ask you to change my heart and my mind regarding these judgments and bitterness
towards you. I cannot free myself, but I am willing to be freed. I cooperate
with Your desire to free me by asking you to free me and by choosing to
confess, renounce, and release these judgments and bitterness towards You.
"I specifically release and renounce using this judgment, condemnation,
self-righteousness, and bitterness towards you to protect myself from painful
emotions, especially powerlessness, and helplessness.
"Lord Jesus, I ask now that you would wash me with
your blood, cleansing me and freeing me from all judgments and bitterness
towards You." "In the name of Jesus, I command that all spiritual
strongholds connected to or associated with judgments and bitterness towards
the Lord regarding ME be torn down now."
"In the name of Jesus, I command all demonic spirits
connected to or associated with my judgments and bitterness towards the
Lord to go immediately and directly to the feet of the true Lord Jesus Christ.
You will go bound. You will not touch or harm anything or anyone on the
way. You will never return and you will never send anything in your place.
He will deal with you as He sees fit."
"In the name of Jesus, I command that all curses in
any way connected to or associated with my judgments and bitterness towards
the Lord be broken, nullified, and rendered powerless."
THANK YOU, Jesus for your forgiveness and for setting me
God Bless You!
