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 my salvation. I receive it in a new and
fresh way from You and I declare that nothing can separate me
from the love of Christ and the place I have in Your kingdom. I
wear Your righteousness today against all condemnation and
corruption. Cover me with 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 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 powerful against every lie and assault of the
enemy. You have good in store for me. Nothing is coming today
that can overcome me because You are with me. Holy Spirit,

me the truths of the Word of God that I will need to counter the
traps of the enemy. Bring those Scriptures to mind today. Finally,
Holy Spirit, I agree to walk in step with You in everything as my
spirit communes 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). Therefore I declare that no weapon
formed against me prospers this day or any day to come in Jesus’
name. Your Word says that trouble will not arise a second time
(Nahum 1:9). Therefore I declare that Satan cannot make trouble
for me again, in this manner, as he did in the past in Jesus’ name. I
declare all of these prayers accomplished and brought to pass by
trusting you through faith and expectation in the name of Jesus.
Lord Jesus, I confess to You all of my sins this day, yesterday
and every day past. 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.
I stand on Your Word. The enemy is driven 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. I declare 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 declare
all of these things accomplished by Your Word. Jesus, my Lord, I
give You thanksgiving, praise, glory, honor and worship for Your
righteousness and holiness given to me by Your Word on my

(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.
I surrender myself completely and unreservedly in every area of
my life to You. I submit myself only to the true and living God
and refuse any involvement of the enemy in my life. I choose to
be transformed by the renewing of my mind. I pull down every
thought that exalts itself against the knowledge of Christ. I pray
and thank you for a sound mind, the mind of Christ.
Today and every day I ask for protection over my spouse; each
of my children; our immediate family members, relatives, friends,
acquaintances and myself. I also ask today for protection during
all of our travels; for our provision, finances, possessions, health,
safety, and welfare. I put all of these things under the covering of
Your precious blood and declare that Satan cannot touch them,
on this day or any day to come.”

(based on Romans 10:10; James 5:16; I John 1:7-9, 3:8)
“Lord 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 have a confession to make. I have not loved, but have
resented certain people and have unforgiveness in my heart. I call
upon You, Lord, to help me forgive them. I do now forgive (name
them). I also forgive and accept myself in the name of Jesus

(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. I
know pride is an abomination to You. I renounce anything that
would cause me to have pride in my heart in dealing with other
people. I renounce these and turn away from them. I humble
myself before You and come to You as a little child.“
Study Proverbs 6:16-19 and remember that fasting is a means by
which a person humbles himself before the Lord

(based on Exodus 20:4-6, 34:7; Numbers 14:18)
“In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I now renounce, break, and
loose myself from all bondages or bonds of physical or mental
illness upon me, my family or family line as the result of parents or
any other ancestors. I thank You, Lord, for setting me free.”
