Prayer is not only communion with God; it is confrontation with the enemy. These prayers are very helpful in spiritual warfare.

“Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.  For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.  Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.  Stand firm then with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the Gospel of peace.  In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.  Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God.  And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.

(Ephesians 6:11-18)



(based on Ephesians 6:13-17)

“Thank You, Lord, for saving me.  Because of what You have done nothing can separate me from Your love and the place I have in Your kingdom.  I wear Your righteousness as a garment that will protect me against all condemnation and corruption.  Your holiness and purity – defend me from all assaults against my heart.  Lord, I put on the belt of truth.  I choose a lifestyle of honesty and integrity. Expose the lies I have believed, and show me the truths I need to be victorious today.  I choose to live for the Gospel in every moment.  Show me where You are working and lead me to it.  Give me strength to walk daily with You.  I believe that You are more powerful than every lie and assault of the enemy.  Nothing is coming today that can overcome me because You are with me.  Holy Spirit, show me the truths of the Word of God that will overcome the traps of the enemy, bring those Scriptures to mind today.  Holy Spirit, help me to walk in step with You in everything as my spirit communicates with You in prayer throughout the day.”



(based on 2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

Father, Your Word says that no weapon formed against me shall prosper (Isaiah 54:17).  Father, I stand on the unchanging Word of God and claim the promise that nothing Satan does will have victory over my life.  I am trusting You with every aspect of my life and believing that Your Word is alive and active in my life.

Lord Jesus, forgive me of this day’s sins. I repent and renounce them, those known and unknown, those of omission and commission, in what I have done and in what I have failed to do.  I lay down at Your feet all of the sins of the flesh, the tongue, and of the heart, and all unholy thoughts and actions.  Thank You, Lord, for shedding Your precious blood for me.

Your Word is a firm foundation and I stand on it.  The enemy has no authority over my life and I ask You Jesus to drive out from before me, above me, around me, and below me; from my home, workplace, church and its ministries, children, and loved ones; from my works and labors, land, and my presence.  You have promised that he is not able to stand against me, and his works are taken captive and destroyed.  No weapon formed against me will prosper, for the Spirit of the Lord shall raise a standard against them.  I believe that all of these things are accomplished by Your Word.  Jesus, I give You thanksgiving, praise, glory, honor and worship for Your righteousness and holiness given to me by Your Word.



(Based on 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1, 10:3-5; Romans 12:1-2)

Heavenly Father, I bow in worship and praise before You.  I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as my protection.  To You I surrender myself completely and unreservedly in all area’s of my life.  I submit myself only to the One and only true and loving God and refuse any involvement of the enemy in my life.  I choose to be transformed by the renewing of my mind.  I will take captive every thought that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ.  I desire only to have the mind of Christ


Today, I ask for protection over my spouse; each of my children; our immediate family members, relatives, friends, acquaintances and myself.  I also ask for protection during all of our travels; for our provision, finances, possessions, health, safety, and welfare.  I put all of these things under Your precious blood and believe that You are always watching Your children and will provide the protection that is needed.



(based on Romans 10:10; James 5:16; 1 John 1:7-9, 3:8)

Jesus, I believe that You are the Son of God.  You are the Messiah, come in the flesh to destroy the works of the devil.  You died on the cross for my sins and rose again the third day from the dead.  I now confess all my sins and repent.  I receive Your forgiveness and ask you to cleanse me from all sin.  Thank You for redeeming me, cleansing me, justifying me, and sanctifying me in Your blood.”



(based on Matthew 6:14-15; Leviticus 19:18)

Lord, I confess that I have not loved, but have resented certain people and have un-forgiveness in my heart.  I call upon You, Lord, to help me forgive them.  I do now forgive (name them).  I also believe that because I have forgiven (name them) You have forgiven me.



(based on Proverbs 11:2, 16:18, 26:12; 1 Timothy 3:6)

Father, I come to You in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ knowing that You despise a prideful heart.  Father, show me anything that would cause me to have pride in my heart.  I confess these areas of pride and turn away from them.
