You love me specifically as a man/woman. 
Sometimes I don’t allow you to love me that way.

Free me from this limitation. 
Let me be my full self when I am with you. 
I ask this through your son Jesus,

The more personal details and life experiences you include, the more real your answers will be.
In talking together, try to be as personal as possible.
