Prayer Focus: A Prayer For Knowing Your Identity in Christ (posted June 4, 2019 on

Lord, I pray that You would unlock my heart that I might be fully alive to my true identity in You. Give me clear revelation to see myself the way You see me. 

Help me to stand in Your truth against all enemy attacks and guard my heart with all vigilance (Proverbs 4:23). 

Help me to identify the lies, and reveal to me any places where I am chained to the past in a negative way. I repent of any lies of the past. [Name those lies and ask God to forgive you.] Teach me to hear Your voice and not believe the enemy’s destructive lies about who I am. 

I thank You for my uniqueness and that I am made in Your image (Genesis 1:27). I want to understand and feel the deep things in Your heart for me (1 Corinthians 2:10-12). I choose to believe the truth about how You see me. 

I thank You that I can hope in the future and believe in the good destiny that You have for me. You have a vision for my future. 

Help me to live a fruitful life now and overflow with Your love to others. 

Give me greater authority in my prayer life. 

I want to know You on a deeper level, and I don’t want anything to hinder my relationship with You.     

I thank You that [Say your name instead of “I”]: 

  • I am Your child (John 1:12), 
  • I have been justified (Romans 5:1), 
  • I am Your friend (John 15:15), 
  • I belong to You (1 Corinthians 6:20), 
  • I am a member of Your body (1 Corinthians 12:27), 
  • I have been established, anointed, and sealed by You (2 Corinthians 1:21-22), 
  • I am a citizen of heaven (Philippians 3:20), 
  • I am blessed in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing (Ephesians 1:3), 
  • I am chosen before the creation of the world (Ephesians 1:4, 11), 
  • I am holy and blameless (Ephesians 1:4), 
  • I am forgiven (Ephesians 1:8; Colossians 1:14) 
  • I am adopted as Your child (Ephesians 1:5), 
  • I have purpose (Ephesians 1:9; 3:11), 
  • I have hope (Ephesians 1:12),
  • I am included (Ephesians 1:13), 
  • I am an overcomer (1 John 4:4), 
  • I am protected (John 10:28), 
  • I am a new creation (2 Corinthians 5:17), 
  • I am qualified to share in Your inheritance (Colossians 1:12), 
  • I am the righteousness of God (2 Corinthians 5:21), 
  • I am safe (1 John 5:18), 
  • I am part of Your Kingdom (Revelation 1:6), 
  • I can understand what Your will is (Ephesians 5:17), 
  • I have God’s power (Ephesians 6:10), 
  • and I am victorious (1 Corinthians 15:57).

Thank You for this new identity I have in You. Help me to live out this truth in my life every day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
