Breakthrough Prayer: Driven Behavior & Perfectionism
Without you, I can do nothing truly on my own for You provide all things with your riches and glory. Help me to abide in You so that I will bear the fruit of Your Kingdom. Thank you for showing me that all I am or have or do comes from you alone, for I do not wish to be tainted by the dark kingdom. The dark kingdom teaches to be self-reliant, with a spirit of false independence. The dark kingdom of the world wants me to put myself and others ahead of You.
Life trauma and insecurity causes many to compensate in the flesh with perfectionism and people pleasing. I have sought after things of the flesh that do not satisfy, but I do not wish for this to continue. I seek after Your Kingdom first and all other things will be added to me as You have promised. Help me to seek after You and not my own significance. Deliver me from perfectionism and driven behaviors that chase things of the flesh and the selfish satisfaction of others.
Because of your precious promises and my willingness, I have been made a new creation. The old self that seeks driven behavior and perfectionism I have cast aside for Your new man in Messiah. You have made all things new in my life. Because I am a new man through the Messiah, I live by trust in the Son of Elohim [YHWH], Who loved me and gave Himself for me. I am complete in Messiah. Continue to fill me up with the knowledge of Your Will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding. Open my mind and heart only to You Father. Help me to be fruitful and to increase in You.
I praise you that I do not need to make myself perfect somehow, but that You are working your righteousness and completeness in me. I know that as I devote myself to You that You will complete me and the work that You started in me. Your Holy Spirit [Set Apart Spirit] gives me power to accomplish great things through Yahshua [Jesus]. I give up an attempt to make myself perfect through works of the flesh. Your strength and grace are sufficient for all things as driven behaviors and perfectionism are rooted out of my life forever. I am not a people pleaser, but seek to please you Father. I thank you that I am already more than the excellence of mankind because I seek to abide in You and stay close to Your Word. I give you the exaltation, the honor and my love in the name of Yahshua [Jesus] the Messiah who heals me. As You have said, so let it be for all eternity.

“For YAHWEH so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son,
that everyone believing into Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, HRB
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your righteousness. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. May it be as you have promised!
You will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The name Yahshua [Y’shua] is an original language name for Jesus.
He is often referred to simply as the Messiah or Master.
