( a very insightful and powerful prayer, taken from a tract printed and shared by Gospel Tract Society, Inc., P. O. Box 1118, Independence, Missouri 64051 )
Heavenly Father, I bow in worship and praise before You. I cover myself with The Blood of The Lord Adonai Messiah Yeshua (The Lord Jesus Christ) 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 (or interruption, or distraction) of Satan in my prayer.
Heavenly Father, I worship You and give You praise (!). I recognize that You are worthy to receive all glory and honor and praise. I renew my allegiance to You and pray that the blessed Holy Spirit would enable me in this time of prayer (to do Your will). I am thankful, Heavenly Father, that You have loved me from past eternity and that You sent The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua) into the world to die as my substitute. I am thankful that The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua) came as my representative and that through Him
You have completely forgiven me;
You have adopted me into Your familly;
You have assumed all responsibility for me;
You have given me eternal Life;
You have given me the perfect Righteousness of The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua) so I am now justified.
I am thankful that in Him You have made me complete, and that You have offered Yourself to me to be my daily Help and Strength.
Heavenly Father, open my eyes that I might see how great You are and how complete Your provision is for this day. I am thankful that the victory The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua) won for me on the Cross (the Roman execution stake) and in His Resurrection (from the dead) has been given to me and that i am seated with The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua) in the heavenlies. I take my place with Him in the heavenlies and recognize by Faith (trusting belief) that all wicked spirits are subject to me in The Name of The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua). ( Hallelujah! )
I am thankful for the Armor You have provided. I put on the Girdle / Belt of Truth, the Breastplate of Righteousness, the Sandals of (my feet shod with) the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, and the Helmet of Salvation. I lift up the Shield of Faith (trusting belief) that is able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked / the enemy of God. And I take in my hand The Sword of The Spirit, the Word / Rhema of God. I choose to use Your Word (especially the special verse[s] You have made me aware of, in my reading of Your Word today) against all the forces of evil in my life. I put on this Armor (Your whole armor, Father God) and live and pray in complete dependence upon You, blessed Holy Spirit (Ruach ha Kodesh).
I am grateful, Heavenly Father, that The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua) 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, and accusations, and the temptations of Satan. I affirm that the Word of God is true, and I choose to live today in The Light of God's Word. ... by Your Grace, dear Lord.
I choose, Heavenly Father, to live in 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 ground 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 (Ruach ha Kodesh).
By faith (trusting belief) and in dependence upon You, I put off the fleshly works of the old man (my old self) and stand into all the victory of the crucifixion where The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua) provided cleansing from the old nature. I put on the new man (my new self, in Messiah Yeshua) and stand into all teh 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 agape Love (unconditional Love -- charity). I put off all forms of fear and put on the new nature with its courage. (boldness) I put off all forms of weakness and put on the new nature with its Strength. (the Joy of The Lord is my Strength!) I put off all forms of lust and put on the new nature with its Righteousness, purity and honesty. I am trusting You to show me how to make this practical in my daily life.
In every way I stand into the victory of the ascension and glorification of The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua), whereby all the principalities and powers were made subject to Him. ( Hallelujah! ) I claim my place in Christ (Messiah) as victorious with Him over all the enemies of my soul. Blessed Holy Spirit (Ruach ha Kodesh), I pray that You would fill me. Come into my life, break down every idol and cast out every foe.
I am thankful, Heavenly 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 that You have blessed me with all (every) spiritual blessing in heavenly places in Christ Jesus (Messiah Yeshua). ( Hallelujah! ) I am thankful that You ahve begotten me unto a living hope by the Resurrection of Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) from the dead. I am thankful that You have made a provision so that today I can live filled with The Spirit of God with agape Love and His Joy and Shalom Peace, with longsuffering, gentleness and goodness, with meekness, faithfulness and self-control in my life. I recognize that 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 in this day to believe my feelings, and I hold up the Shield of Faith against all the accusations and distortion and insinuations that Satan would put into my mind. I claim the fullness of the Will of God for my life today.
In the Name (and through The Blood) of The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua), I completely surrender myself to You, Heavenly Father, as a living sacrifice. I choose not to be conformed to this world. I choose to be transformed by the renewing of my mind, and I pray that You would show me Your will and enable me (by Your Grace) to walk in all the fullness of Your Will today.
I am thankful, Heavenly 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 exalteth itself against the Knowledge of God, and to bring every thought into obedience to The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Messiah Yeshua). Therefore, in my own life today I tear down the strongholds of Satan and smash the plans of Satan that have been formed against me. ha Shem Yeshua! I tear down the strongholds of Satan against my mind, and I surrender my mind to You, blessed Holy Spirit (Ruach ha Kodesh). I affirm, Heavenly Father, that You have not given me the spirit of fear, but of power and of Love and of a sound mind. ( Hallelujah! )
I break and smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my emotions today, and I give my emotions to You, Heavenly Father. I smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my will today. I give my will to You, Heavenly Father, and I choose to make the right decisions of Faith (trusting belief in Your Word). I smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my body today. I give my body to You, Heavenly Father, recognizing that I am Your temple, the temple of The Holy Spirit. I rejoice in Your mercy and goodness, Heavenly Father.
Heavenly Father, I pray that now and through this day You would strengthen and enlighten me, show me the way Satan is hindering and tempting and lying and distorting the Truth in my life. Enable me to be the kind of person that would please You, Heavenly Father. Enable me to be aggressive in prayer and faith. Enable me to be aggressive mentally, (to be alert to the schemes of the devil) 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 The Lord Jesus Christ (Adonai Yeshua the Messiah), and pray that You, blessed Holy Spirit, would bring all the work of the Crucifixion (Messiah's substitutionary atoning death in my place, on "the tree"), all the work of the Resurrection (of Messiah Yeshua from the dead), all the work of the glorification, and all the work of Pentecost into my life today. ( Hallelujah! ) I surrender myself to You, Heavenly Father. I refuse to be discouraged. You are The God of all hope. You have proven Your Power by resurrecting Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah) from the dead, and I claim in every way this victory over all satanic forces in my life. I pray in The (mighty, humble, victorious) Name of The Lord Jesus Christ (Yeshua the Messiah, my Adonai) with thanksgiving. Amen.
