God is able to restore The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want. He makes me lie down in green pastures, he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul. Psalm 23: 1-2
Restoration requires... Honesty … with God and yourself Repentance … turn and run Renounce… all involvement Break… all unholy soul ties Walk … in the freedom
Reflection Write down any sexual sin you need to repent of including... Any sexual partners outside of marriage Involvement in pornography Any person, or object, to whom you have formed an unholy emotional attachment
Father God, I specifically repent of… (name it here quietly to the Lord). I repent of using my body or allowing my body to be used in this way, and I renounce the spirits behind these acts.
Forgive me Lord, cleanse me and destroy every bondage in my life as a result of these sins. I renounce every lie of the enemy telling me that I am dirty or not acceptable because of my past sexual experiences.
I take authority over the spirits behind sexual sin, and I break their hold over my life right now. I also take authority over any generational sin in Jesus’ Name. Thank you Lord Jesus that you cleanse me, that you fully accept me and love me unconditionally.
I now present my body to you as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to you. Please come and fill me afresh with your Holy Spirit, make me brand new in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
