Bible Faith Fellowship: Substance Over Form

Personal Warfare Prayer

Father, in the Name of Jesus, I bow in worship and praise before You. I cover myself with the blood of Jesus as my protection. I surrender myself completely and unre­servedly in every area of my life to You. I take a stand against all the workings of Satan that would hinder me in my prayer life. I address myself only to the True and Living God and refuse any involvement of Satan in my prayer.

Satan, I command you in the Name of Jesus to leave my presence with all of your demons. I place the cross of Jesus between us.

Heavenly Father, I worship You and I give You praise. I recognize that You alone are worthy to receive all glory, honor, power and praise. I renew my allegiance to You and pray the Holy Spirit would enable me in this time of prayer. I am thankful that He came as my representative and that through Him you have completely forgiven me. You have adopted me into Your family and have assumed all responsibility for me. You have given me eternal life. You have given me the perfect righteousness of Jesus so I am now justified. I am thankful that in Him You have made me complete and You have offered yourself to me to be my daily help and strength.

Father, open my eyes that I might see how great You are and how complete Your provision is for this day. I am thankful the victory Jesus won for me on the cross and in His resurrection has been given to me and that I am seated with Him in the heavenlies. I take my place with Him in the heavenlies and recognize by faith that all wicked spirits and Satan himself are under my feet. I declare, therefore, that Satan and his demons are subject to me in the Name of Jesus.

I am thankful for the armor you have provided. I stand firm with the belt of Truth around my waist. I put on the breastplate of Righteousness and stand with my feet fitted with the Gospel of Peace. In addition to this, I take up the shield of Faith with which I can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. I put on the helmet of Salvation and take in my hand the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. I choose to use Your Word against all the forces of evil in my life. I put on this armor and live and pray in complete dependence upon You, Holy Spirit.

I am grateful that Jesus spoiled all principalities and powers and made a show of them openly and triumphed over them in Himself. I claim all that victory for my life today. I reject all the insinuations, accusations, tempta­tions, and lies of Satan. I affirm the Word of God is true and I set my will to live today in line with God's Word. I choose, Father, to live in complete obedience to You and in fellow­ship with Yourself. Open my eyes and show me the areas of my life that do not please You. Work in me to cleanse me from all unrighteousness that would give Satan a foothold against me. I do in every way stand into all that it means to be Your adopted child and I welcome all the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

By faith and in dependence upon You I put off the fleshly works of the old man and stand into all the victory of the crucifixion where Jesus provided cleansing from the old nature. I put on the new man and stand into all the victory of the resurrection and the provision He had made for me to live above sin.

Therefore, today I put off all forms of selfishness and put on the new nature with its love. I put off all forms of fear and put on the new nature with its courage. I put off all forms of weakness and put on the new nature with its strength. I put off all forms of lust and put on the new nature with its righteousness and purity. I put off all forms of lying and put on the new nature with its honesty. I am trusting You to show me how to make this practical in my daily life.

In every way I stand into all the victory of the ascension and glorification of Jesus, whereby all the principalities and powers were made subject to Him. I claim my place in Christ as victorious over all the enemies of my soul. Holy Spirit, I pray that you would fill me. Come into my life, break down every idol and cast out every foe.

I am thankful, Father, for the expression of Your will for my daily life as You have shown me in Your Word. I therefore claim all the will of God for today. I am thankful You have loved me from past eternity. I am thankful You have blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Jesus. I am thankful You have begotten me unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus from the dead. I am thankful that You have made a provision so today I can live filled with the Spirit of God with love, joy, peace, patience, gentleness, kindness, humility, faithfulness, and self-control in my life. I recognize this is Your will for me and I therefore reject and resist all the endeavors of Satan and his wicked spirits to rob me of the will of God. I refuse to believe my emotions and I hold up the Shield of Faith against all the accusations and distortions and lies Satan would put into my mind. I claim all the fullness of the will of God for my life today.

In the Name of Jesus, I completely surrender myself to you as a living sacrifice. I choose not to be conformed to this world but to be transformed by the renewing of my mind. I pray You would show me Your will and enable me to walk in all the fullness of Your will today.

I am thankful, Father, that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, to the casting down of imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and to bring every thought into obedience to Jesus. In my own life today I tear down the strongholds of Satan and smash the plans of Satan that have been formed against me. I tear down the strongholds of Satan against my mind, and I surrender my mind to You, Holy Spirit. I affirm, Father, that you have not given me a spirit of fear but of love, power, a sound mind, self-control, and self-discipline. I break and smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my emotions today and I give my emotions to You. I smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my will today. I give my will to You and choose to make the right decisions of faith. I smash the strongholds of Satan against my body today. I give my body to You recognizing I am a temple of the Holy Spirit. I rejoice in Your mercy and goodness.

Father, I pray that now and through this day You would strengthen and enlighten me. Show me the way Satan is hindering, tempting, lying, and distorting the truth in my life. Enable me to be the kind of person that would please You. Enable me to be aggressive mentally, to think about and practice Your Word, and to give You Your rightful place in my life.

Again I cover myself with the blood of Jesus and pray that You, Holy Spirit, would bring all the work of Jesus' life, death, resurrection, ascension, glorification, and Pentecost into my life today. I surrender myself to You and refuse to be discouraged. You are the God of all hope. You have proven Your power by resurrecting Jesus Christ from the dead, and I claim in every way this victory over all satanic forces in my life. I pray in the name of Jesus with thanksgiving. AMEN.
