Heavenly Father, I bow in worship and praise before you.
I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as my
I surrender myself completely and unreservedly in every area
of my life to You.
I take a stand against all the workings of satan that would
hinder me in my prayer life.
I address myself only to the True and Living God and refuse
any involvement of satan in my prayer.
Satan, I command you, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
to leave my presence with all your demons I bring the blood of the Lord
Jesus Christ between us.
Heavenly Father, I worship You and give You praise. I recognize
that You are worthy to receive all glory and honor and praise. I renew
my allegiance to You and pray that the blessed Holy Spirit would enable
me in this time of prayer. I am thankful, Heavenly Father, that You have
loved me from past eternity and that You sent the Lord Jesus Christ into
the world to die as my substitute. I am thankful that the Lord Jesus Christ
came as my representative and that through Him You have completely forgiven
me; You have adopted me into your family; You have assumed all responsibility
for me; You have given me eternal life; You have given me the perfect righteousness
of the Lord Jesus Christ so I am now justified. I am thankful that in Him,
you have made me complete, and that you have offered Yourself to me to
be my daily help and strength.
Heavenly Father, open my eyes that I might see how great You
are and how complete Your provision is for this day. I am thankful that
the victory the Lord Jesus Christ won for me on the cross and in His resurrection
has been given to me and that I am seated with the Lord Jesus Christ in
I take my place with Him in the heavenlies and recognize by
faith that all wicked spirits and satan himself are under my feet. I declare,
therefore, that satan and his wicked spirits are subject to me in the name
of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I am thankful for the Armor You have provided. I put on the
Girdle of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Sandals of Peace
and the Helmet of Salvation. I lift up the Shield of Faith against all
the fiery darts of the enemy; and I take in my hand the Sword of the Spirit,
the Word of God. I choose to use Your Word against all the forces of evil
in my life. I put on this Armor and live and pray in complete dependence
upon You, blessed Holy Spirit.
I am grateful, Heavenly Father, that the Lord Jesus Christ spoiled
all principalities and powers and made a show of them openly and triumphed
over them in Himself. I claim all that victory for my life today. I reject
all the insinuations, and accusations, and the temptations of satan. I
affirm that the Word of God is true and I choose to live today in
the light of God's Word. I choose, Heavenly Father, to live in obedience
to You and in fellowship with Yourself. Open my eyes and show me the areas
of my life that do not please You. Work in me to cleanse me from all ground
that would give satan a foothold against me. I do in every way stand into
all that it means to be Your adopted child, dear Heavenly Father, and I
welcome all the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
By faith and in dependence upon You, I put off the fleshly works
of the old man and stand into all the victory of the crucifixion where
the Lord Jesus Christ provided cleansing from the old nature. I put on
the new man and stand into all the victory of the resurrection and the
provision He has made for me to live above sin.
Therefore, today I put off all forms of selfishness and put
on the new nature with its love. I put off all forms of fear and put on
the new nature with its courage. I put off all forms of weakness and put
on the new nature with its strength. I put off all forms of lust and put
on the new nature with its righteousness, purity, and honesty. I am trusting
You, Lord Jesus, to show me how to make this practical in my daily life.
In every way I stand into the victory of the ascension and glorification
of the Lord Jesus Christ, whereby all the principalities and powers were
made subject to Him. I claim my place in Christ as victorious with Him
over all the enemies of my soul. Blessed Holy Spirit, I pray that
You would fill me. Come into my life, break down every idol and cast out
I am thankful, Heavenly Father, for the expression of Your will
for my daily life as You have shown me in Your Word. I, therefore, claim
all the will of God for today. I am thankful that You have blessed me with
all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I am
thankful that You have begotten me unto a living hope by the resurrection
of Jesus Christ from the dead. I am thankful that You have made a
provision so that today I can live filled with the Spirit of God with
love and joy and peace, with long-suffering, gentleness and goodness,
with meekness, faithfulness and self-control in my life. I recognize that
this is Your will for me and I therefore reject and resist all the endeavors
of satan and his wicked spirits to rob me of the will of god. I refuse
in this day to believe my feelings and I hold up the Shield of Faith against
all the accusations and distortion and insinuations that satan would put
into my mind. I claim the fullness of the will of God for my life today.
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I completely surrender
myself to You, Heavenly Father, as a living sacrifice. I choose not
to be conformed to this world. I choose to be transformed by the
renewing of my mind, and I pray that You would show me Your will and enable
me to walk in all the fullness of Your will today. I am thankful,
Heavenly Father, that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty
through God to the pulling down of strongholds, to the casting down of
imagination and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge
of God, and to bring every thought into obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, in my own life today I tear down the strongholds
of satan and smash the plans of satan that have been formed against
me. I tear down the strongholds of satan against my mind, and I surrender
my mind to You, blessed Holy Spirit. I affirm, Heavenly Father, that
You have not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love and
of a sound mind.
I break and smash the strongholds of satan formed against
my emotions today and I give my emotions to You, Lord Jesus. I smash
the strongholds of satan formed against my will today, I give
my will to You, Lord Jesus, and choose to make the right decisions of faith.
I smash the strongholds of satan formed against my body today,
I give my body to You recognizing that I am your temple. I rejoice
in Your mercy and goodness.
Heavenly Father, I pray that now and through this day You would
strengthen and enlighten me. Show me the way satan is hindering and tempting
and lieing and distorting the truth in my life. Enable me to
be the kind of person that would please You, Lord Jesus. Enable me to be
aggressive in prayer and faith. Enable me to be aggressive mentally, to
think about and practice Your Word, and to give You Your rightful place
in my life.
Again, I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ
and pray that You, blessed Holy Spirit, would bring all the work of the
crucifixion, all the work of the resurrection, all the work of the crucification,
and all the work of Pentecost into my life today. I surrender myself to
You, Lord Jesus. I refuse to be discouraged. You are the God
of ALL HOPE. You have proven Your power by resurrecting Jesus Christ from
the dead, and I claim in every way this victory over all the satanic forces
in my life.
I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ with thanksgiving.
