There is a prayer that I prayed over the last several years. I prayed this particular prayer because I was returning from my rebellion against God. I fell from his grace about 20 years ago, and it has taken me that long to get to the point where I have been willing to pray and read the Word. I admit that I did not write the prayer (below), but I prayed it almost every day for a year. I have recently begun this prayer cycle again.
I have a very strong feeling that someone out there is going through a real challenge, a real struggle. Try this prayer below. Just do it. It doesn’t matter if you feel like it or not, just commit to do this for 40 days. Whoever you are, I pray with you in this struggle. A lot of Christians have no idea what darkness lay waiting to capture a soul. It is very difficult to see this happen, and even more difficult if you are the captive. Pray this prayer, and watch your life change. Pray this prayer on behalf of the one you see struggling. God knows where you are. Let him see you obey and let him hear your voice.
I pray this prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit, and in the name of Jesus Christ.
In the name of Jesus Christ I bind, rebuke, and bring to no effect: All division, discord, disunity, strife, anger, wrath, murder, criticism condemnation, pride, envy jealousy, gossip, slander, evil speaking, complaining, lying, false teaching, false gifts, false manifestations, lying signs and wonders, poverty, fear of lack, fear spirits, retaliatory spirits, deceiving spirits, religious spirits, occult spirits, witchcraft spirits, and spirits of Antichrist.
I bind all curses that have been spoke against me, I bless those who curse me, and pray blessings on those who despitefully use me. I bind all spoken judgement made against me, and judgments I have made against others. I bind the power of negative words from others, and I bind and render useless all prayers not inspired by the Holy Spirit; whether psychic, soul force, witchcraft or counterfeit tongues that have been prayed against me.
I am God’s child. I resist the devil, in the name of Jesus. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I put on the whole armor of God. In the name of Jesus, and because Jesus has granted me this power, I take authority over this day. Let this day be prosperous for me, and let me walk in your love, Lord.
The Holy Spirit leads and guides me today. I discern between the righteous and the wicked. I take authority over Satan and all his demons and those people who are influenced by them. I declare Satan is under my feet and shall remain there all day.
I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I am God’s property because I have been bought with the shed blood of Jesus Christ. Satan, you are bound from my family, my mind, my body, my home, and my finances. I confess that I am healed and whole because of the blood of the Lamb, Christ Jesus. I flourish; I am long lived, stable, durable, incorruptible, fruitful, virtuous, and full of peace, patience and love. Whatsoever I set my hands to do shall prosper, for God supplies all my needs. By the authority Christ Jesus has placed in me, I have all authority over Satan, all demons, and beasts of the field.
God, I pray for the ministry you have for me. Anoint me, God, for all you call me to do for you. I call forth divine appointment, open doors of opportunity, God ordained encounters, and ministry positions.
By the name of Christ Jesus, I claim a hedge of protection around myself, my spouse, my child(ren) throughout this day and night. I ask you, God, in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior, to dispatch angels to surround me, all the members of my family, to put angels throughout our home, around our cars, souls and bodies. I ask angels to protect my house, and all the land that surrounds it, from any intrusion and to protect me and my family from any harmful demonic mental attacks.
Lord God, I pray this prayer of behalf of my neighbors, my friends, my extended family and my nation.
I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Lord. – AMEN
