Father God,
Lead me not into temptation but deliver me from evil. Mat. 6:13
I will not let the devil take advantage of me and sift me as wheat. I Cor. 2:11, Luke 22:31
I trust in You alone to provide an escape from all temptations. I Cor. 10:13
My strength comes from the power of the Lord as I clothe myself with the whole armor of God Eph. 6:11-17

-THE BELT OF TRUTH – I will fill my innermost parts with Your truth
-THE BREASTPLATE OF RIGHTWOUSNESS – Your righteousness will protect my heart, for out of it flows the issues of life.
-THE READINESS OF THE GOSPEL OF PEACE – Gives me the stability to proclaim the Gospel to those in my path today.
-THE SHIELD OF FAITH – I lift up the shield of faith which does not keep me from the battle, but protects me in the midst of it.
-THE HELMET OF SALVATION -I will shelter my mind from Satan’s attacks of doubt, depression and discouragement with the helmet of salvation.
-THE GARMENT OF PRAISE FOR THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS – I make a decision to praise You in all things today, no matter what.


I am REDEEMED out of the hand of Satan. Ps 107:2
I am CLEANSED continually from all sins. I Jn 1:7
I am JUSTIFIED and made righteous through faith. Rm 5:9
I am SANCTIFIED, made holy and set apart to God. Heb. 13:12
I am FREE from the fear of hell and death. Rm 8:2, Gal. 3:13
I am HEALED of all sickness and disease. Is 53:5 and guilt Rm. 8:11
I am FORGIVEN Eph. 1:7 and all my sins are forgotten Is. 43:25

I know Satan is a bluff, a liar and a thief. Jn. 8:44, 10:10
Satan has no place, no power and no unsettled claims against me. Rm 8:33-34
On the Cross the battle was won and Satan was made a public display. Col. 2:14-15
I have authority over ALL the powers of darkness and I fear nothing. Lk. 10:19
Jesus and His power are the same yesterday, today and forever. Heb. 13:8
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Phil 4:13
I overcome the devil by the blood of the Lamb and the word of my testimony and I love not my life unto death. Rev. 12:11

Father, I ask that every carnal prayer, every negative statement and every curse spoken against me or by me be broken today in the name of Jesus. I aks that the harvest of negative seeds I have sown be cut short and the harvest of positive seeds be hastened, for I know that as I have sown so shall I reap. Gal. 6:7
Fill me with the knowledge of your will today in all spiritual wisdom and understanding so I amy walk in a manner worthy of You, to please You, bearing good fruit and increasing in the knowledge of You. Col. 1:9-10

I came across this prayer while cleaning the side of my fridge off yesterday. I love to pray with my own words but I love to pray with scripture too. I am longing to be in the “will” of God lately and there seemed to me, today, no better way to start my day than to align myself with His word. I hope this blesses you today as it blessed me.
