A Prayer For When You Want To Hide

Abba Father

I come before you today to ask for forgiveness.
My shame has kept me hiding
from you.

I thought that by remaining hidden you
would not see my sin, shame, or guilt.

Father, I was wrong, for I read in your word
that you are omnipresent.

Your God-breathed word tells me that
when I asked Jesus into my heart and repented
of my sins, I am forgiven.

Satan tries to get me to hide from you by reminding
me of my sins, shame, and guilt.

Because Jesus is my Saviour, I can say get away, Satan
Jesus has washed me clean, white as snow.

I am a new creation in Christ.

Father, I pray for those still in hiding.
I pray for them to recognize your love,
your comforting hugs and your nudges.

I pray for them to have the strength to break free
of Satans bondage and step out of hiding and into
the light of the world that is you.

In Jesus’ name, I pray
Amen

Where I join up with a community of writers and bloggers of all ages and stages who gather around a single word prompt to free-write, unscripted, unedited, for five minutes. This week’s word prompt was {HIDE}
