Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

a prayer of assurance

Lord God,

There are a lot of voices out there right now, screaming at us and telling us false truths about ourselves. Some come from inside ourselves, some come from close friends, and some come from celebrity, media, and the broader Christian world. As much as we'd like the voices to always speak truth, they don't. And it's exhausting.

Still the beat of our anxious hearts, Father, especially when we don't know what voices speak truth. Especially when those voices has us doubting something that is contrary to Scripture... especially when those words do not lift up, convict,encourage, or point us to You. 

Gives us discernment to know what voices to tune out, the fortitude to test all voices against the truth of Scripture, and the peace to sit with You and listen to the truth of how You see us. 

Help us understand that
  • You are with us (Psalm 46)
  • You are for us (Psalm 56:9)
  • You delight in us (Zephaniah 3:17)
  • You watch over us (Psalm 121:5-8)

Assure us that we 
  • are loved by You (1 John 4:9-11)
  • belong to You (Colossians 1:16)
  • are renewed (Ephesians 4:23)
  • are included (Ephesians 1:13-14)
  • are Your children (Galatians 3:26)
