Prayer Topic: Identity in God

Someone who is wrestling with placing their identity in God is most likely placing what they believe about themselves in something else. Remind them that when God created our identity, He fashioned it to be constant and unchanging so that even when we sin and mess up, we can be confident that we are forever loved, useful, and powerful because of His spirit in us. 

When we place our identity in things like life experiences, opinions, people, bank accounts and our own abilities, we can miss opportunities to be fully used by God.  


Possible Things to Pray for:

  • Renewed sense of self in Christ.
  • Authority that comes from the Holy Spirit over thoughts, words and deeds.
  • Help replace negative self-talk with truth from God’s Word.
  • Healing from past events that may have caused them to second guess who they are in Christ.
  • Surrendering and silencing the thoughts that are hindering God from using them.


Verses to Share:

Ephesians 2:10 NLT - For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

1 John 3:1-2 NIV - See that great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Dear friends, now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when Christ appears, we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 NIV - Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.

Romans 8:37 NIV - No, despite all these things, overwhelming victory is ours through Christ, who loved us.

Colossians 3:12 NIV - Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
