11 Powerful Prayers for Acceptance

It is difficult to sometimes accept aspects of life that are unfamiliar to us or to accept ourselves for who we are. Here are 11 powerful prayers to give you the words to guide your prayers for acceptance.

Prayer to Help Me Accept Change
Lord of Power, I need Your strength to help me with acceptance of all things. I struggle accepting change, new people, bad news, and so much more. You alone know my needs, and I certainly need Your help. Ease my fears and remove my apprehensive thoughts as I work to implement new ways and accept different ideas in my life. Jesus, place Your comforting hands around my heart and give me the courage to welcome newness and changes in my life. In Your heavenly name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Me to Be Accepted by Others
Lord of Power, help me to be accepted in a world of indifference. My tastes, personality, and beliefs don’t always fit in with those around me. Help me find friends and loved ones who will see the uniqueness in my spirit. Show me where to find fellow Christians, so I can fellowship and enjoy time with others in a comfortable environment. Keep my soul filled with positivity and hope as I search for acceptance. Lead me to the right situations, show me good, genuine people, and allow me to find life-long relationships. I ask these things in Jesus’ compassionate name, I pray. Amen.

Acceptance of Things I Cannot Change Prayer
God of Loving Devotion, I ask You to help me with events, circumstances, and problems in my life that I cannot change. Show me ways to accept those things that hurt my heart and tangle with the virtues of my soul. Help me to understand that my acceptance of issues I believe are wrong or against Christianity, doesn’t mean I believe they are correct. Help me to have peace with these types of situations and ease my anxieties when I face them. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Acceptance and Love of Others Prayer
O God, my Strength, show me how to be a person who accepts others for the way they are without demanding complete change. Show me that stereotyping someone is wrong and provide me with opportunities to overcome this problem in my thinking. Allow me to see others with Your eyes, for I know we are to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. Encourage me to accept new personalities and friendships. Show me how being different can be better, and how it can allow me to have a welcoming heart. I ask these things in Your name. Amen.

Accepting God’s Will Prayer
Jesus, my Savior, I know that living in Your will is the best and safest place to be. During those moments in my life that bring me to the lowest valleys filled with sorrow, I ask that You help me accept whatever happens. Help me to see past my wants and wishes. Remind me that You are in control and You know best. Keep my mind filled with Your promises and show me that when I am living in Your perfect will, all other things will fall into place. In Your name, I pray. Amen.

Acceptance of Death Prayer
Sovereign Lord, You have a reason for everything that happens in our lives, and I know someday, I will see Your reason. It is not right of me to ask why You took him/ her from my life, but I do need You to help me accept his/her death. Show me ways to help my mind stay positive and keep my heart beating. Cover me in mercy and peace, so acceptance can prevail. I need You to keep me from falling any farther, so please hear my prayer. Acceptance is hard, but I know it can be done with Your help. Guide me as I trek through each day and hold my hand as I progress towards healing. In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer to Find Self-Acceptance
God of Enduring Faithfulness, help me to find ways to accept myself for who I am. Open my eyes to see the beauty in my soul and help me to find the good in what I stand for. Show me what You see. Bring my talents to life and allow me how to be a blessing to others. Encourage me as I begin this new era and fill me with optimism. I know You forgive my mistakes, You can see past my personality and looks, and You know the real me. Help me to love myself as You love me. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.

Prayer for Acceptance and Peace
Lord of the Highest Heavens, please allow me to have acceptance of all things in my life and give my heart a peace that passes all understanding. Show me how to move forward with my family and friends and encourage me as I work through this. Whatever my circumstances, Jesus, let me find contentment so acceptance can follow. I know that without true acceptance, I will never have a peaceful soul. I need You to give me both. Thank You for Your love. In Jesus’ precious name, I pray. Amen.

Acceptance of Change Prayer
God of Increase, change isn’t always bad, and I need to accept that. Help me as I face changes in my life and show me ways to manage them. Jesus, give me wisdom and guide me as I enter these changes. May others be an encouragement as well and allow me to do the same in return. Keep me from questioning why things are happening and just show me how to accept them. In Your loving name, I ask these things. Amen.
