A Prayer by Sylvia Gunter
*NOTE: Though I’ve never used another person’s material for one of my posts, I’ve enjoyed reading Sylvia’s devotionals for years, and just thought this was too rich not to share. See below to access other devotionals by Sylvia. Used with permission.
You are the Name above all names, the Lord of heaven and earth, King of all kings, El Elyon-Most High God, Mighty Warrior, Captain of the Lord’s hosts. You are the Commander of the armies of heaven who has no equal, who cannot lose, and You are by our side.
All power is Yours, Sovereign God my Father. I confess Jesus as my Savior and Lord. I am in Christ, redeemed by His sacrifice on the cross, cleansed and clothed in His righteousness. I do not presume my safety. I step intentionally into the protection of the blood of the worthy Lamb of God. I plead the mighty name of our Lord Jesus Christ over all of my life, all my family, all possessions, my job or business, my ministry, and the people in my personal and spiritual jurisdiction. The blood of the spotless Lamb of God is my Shield of protection from the destructive intent of the enemy. Jesus has given me legitimate authority to tread on all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall injure me (Luke 10:19).
Because of the cross of Jesus, the devil has no place in me, no power, dominion, or authority over me. I overcome him by the victory of the blood of Jesus. He has no unsettled claims nor effectual assignments against me. I stand against every lie the deceiver ever told me. I take back all ground I ever gave him and close every door I ever opened to him, intentionally or in ignorance. I refuse his accusations and condemnation, because all my sins and guilt are nailed to the cross.
I refuse the enemy’s tactics of fear and intimidation. My weapons through God are mighty to pull down enemy strongholds. In the name of Jesus, in His authority, by His blood, according to His Word in the power of the Holy Spirit, I pull down every stronghold of the enemy in my life. I resist everything that exalts itself against knowing God and obeying His will.
We overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony. I claim the perfect freedom of Jesus. I receive all the fullness of the Holy Spirit living in me. I yield all of myself to all of God. I plead, Your Kingdom come, Your will be done, in my life as it is in heaven this day. I stand in all the victory that is in Christ Jesus, in whose precious name I pray.
