Spiritual Warfare Prayer 

Modeled on a prayer in Linda Schubert’s “Miracle Hour” booklet

Heavenly Father, I come before You in praise, worship and adoration. Thank you for sending Your Son Jesus to give me life, to give me forgiveness, to give me a place in Your family. Thank you for sending the Holy Spirit to guide me and empower me in my daily life. Heavenly Father, open my eyes that I may see Your greatness, Your majesty, Your victory on my behalf.

I place myself now under the cross of Jesus Christ and cover myself with the Precious Blood of Jesus. I surround myself with the light of Christ and say: in the name of Jesus, that nothing shall interfere with the Lord’s work being accomplished in my life.

I put on God’s armor to resist the devil’s tactics. I stand my ground with truth buckled around my waist and integrity for a breastplate. I carry the shield of faith to put out the burning arrows of the evil one. I accept salvation from God to be my helmet and receive the word of God from the Spirit to use as a sword (Ephesians 6: 10, 11, 14, 16, 17)

Heavenly Father please show me any way that satan has a hold of my life. I let go of all those ways now. Any territory I have handed over to satan I now reclaim and place under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus Christ I bind all spirits of the air, fire, water, ground, underground and netherworld. I bind all forces of evil and claim the Blood of Jesus on the air, the atmosphere, the water, the ground and their fruits around us, the underground, and the netherworld. In the name of Jesus Christ I seal this room, this house and all members of my family, relatives, associates and all sources of supply in the Blood of Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus Christ I forbid every spirit from any source from harming me in any way.

In the name of Jesus Christ I reject the seductive lure of evil in all its forms and refuse to let sin have dominion over me. I reject satan and all his works, all his plans, all his noise and all his empty promises. Heavenly Father, I ask forgiveness for myself, my friends, relatives and ancestors: for calling upon powers that set themselves up in opposition to Jesus Christ. OR for any moments I have stupidly placed myself in opposition to your Holy Will. OR for all moments I have allowed evil to work on me.

I renounce all openness to the occult, all false worship, all magical arts. I renounce every power apart from God and every form of worship that does not offer true honor to Jesus Christ. I specifically renounce __________________. (example: astrology, fortune telling, psychics, crystals, tarot cards, ouija boards or any occult games, any article of the new age movement etc). In the name of Jesus, I break any curses that may be coming against me or my family, and stop the transmission of those curses through my ancestry.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I renounce and reject and bind you spirit of ___________________. Ask the Lord to reveal the name (examples: lust, sin, confusion, despair, darkness, evil, temptation, seduction, chaos, helplessness, obsession, fantasy, intoxication, sensuality, unclean thoughts, unholy thoughts, unholy desires, uncharitable thoughts, addiction, pride, self-justification, resentment, lies, ... If you are not sure about the name, identify it by its negative fruit: anger, unforgiveness, fear, insecurity, illness, anxiety, and so on).

I bind you all away from me now, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Lord Jesus, fill me with Your love to replace fear, fill me with strength to replace weakness, fill me with courage to replace cowardice, fill me with obedience to replace disobedience etc (After each command, ask the Lord to fill you with the positive opposite of the negativity you removed: (purity/impurity, chastity/unchastity, light/darkness, holiness/unholiness peace/old anxieties, trust/untrust, unbelief/belief, wisdom/stupidity, humility/pride, cooperation/resistance, the eternal now/the dead past and worry of future, holy silence/noise of calculation etc)

Loving Father, let the cleansing healing waters of my baptism flow back through the generations to purify my family line of contamination. Thank You Lord for setting me free. “…in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us (Romans 8:37). Spend a few moments in praise.
