EVERYDAY PRAYERS FOR YOUR SPIRITUAL BATTLE
You don’t have to be a spiritual warfare expert to defeat the enemy. But you do need to wear the armor God provides (Eph. 6:10-18), avoid enemy traps, and keep your eyes on Jesus. Praying these Scripture-based prayers will help you to stand firm in God’s mighty power.
Lord, help me to stand firm in Your truth. Lies are the devil’s native language; help me not to fall for his deadly deceptions. Holy Spirit, guide me into all truth. You desire truth in my inner parts, so please show me any lies I’m believing or perpetuating. (Eph. 6:14; Jn 8:44; 2 Thes. 2:10; Jn. 16:13; Ps. 51:6)
Thank you, Lord, for allowing me to depend on Your righteousness whenever the accuser comes against me. I’m so glad this righteousness doesn’t come from obeying rules; it comes by faith in You through my relationship with Christ. Lord, today I seek Your kingdom and righteousness specifically in the areas of ________________. (Ps. 31:1; Phil. 3:9; Mt. 6:33)
God of peace, thank you that I have peace with You through our Lord Jesus Christ. Make my mind full of life and peace. And help me to make every effort to live at peace with others, especially _______________. I praise You because You will soon crush Satan under my feet. (Ro. 5:1, 8:6, 12:18, 16:20)
Faithful Father, my faith rests in You alone. Shield me by Your power, and extinguish all the flaming arrows the enemy directs my way. Increase my faith! I know You are faithful to strengthen and protect me. (1 Pet. 1:5; Eph. 6:16; Lk. 17:5; 2 Thes. 3:3)
Savior, You are my light and my salvation, so I am not afraid! Your powerful name-Jesus-means salvation. It’s the only name under heaven that can save, so I call on that name now: Jesus! I am Yours, save me! (Ps. 27:1; Mt. 1:21; Acts 4:12; Ps. 119:94)
