Spiritual Warfare Prayer
"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." Ephesians 6:10-12
Father God, You have NOT given me a spirit of fear, but of power and peace. I'm grateful You unconditionally love and accept me. As I enter into this prayer for my protection, I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth who came in the flesh.
I recognize by faith that all wicked spirits and satan are subject to me in the authority I have through the name of Jesus. I reject any thoughts or words that don't originate from You or my own intellect.
I'm grateful for my Spiritual Armor that isn't carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds. I put on and use the Girdle of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Sandals of Peace, the Helmet of Salvation, the Shield of Faith, and the Sword of the Spirit against all the evil forces in my life.
I choose to be transformed by the renewing of my mind. Show me the areas of my life that are rooted in fear and demonstrate I don't trust You. By faith, I release into Your hands my fear based beliefs. From this moment, I choose for all my actions, words, thoughts, and emotions to be based on my trust in You.
In the name of Jesus, I tear down satan's strongholds in my life. I cancel and smash his activities and plans devised against my mind, emotions, free will, and body for I am the temple of the Holy Spirit. I command all demonic entities to leave me and go to the dry place. I put the blood of Jesus Christ between us.
I ask you Holy Spirit to fill me to overflowing with Your presence. I believe and receive healing for my body, mind, and emotions. I receive Your perfect will for my life. I declare this fully believing that my victory will be evident to all and You Father God will receive the glory for it. Amen.
