Prayer

Freedom

People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7; NIV).

“I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10; NRSV).

I will say to the prisoners, ‘Come out in freedom’ (Isaiah 49:9; NLT).

So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed (John 8:36; NIV).

Lord,
We’re surrounded by people
Telling us what we should be –
What size and shape,
What clothes to wear,
How we should behave,
What we should want,
What to believe –
The list is endless.

Please help us
To discover
And become
Ourselves,
Just as we are,
For then we will be free indeed –
With you.
