A Prayer Declaration
I thank you Father that healing and forgiveness is mine because of what Jesus has done for me, by dying for me and I receive that healing now of body, mind and spirit and I give you thanks that the blood shed for me has washed away all of my sins.
Therefore I will not live like as a captive any longer, because freedom is mine, because of what Jesus has done, and those whom the Son set free are free indeed.
I renounce all ways of thinking, even religious thinking that does not come from you Lord and I declare that my mind is being transformed and renewed by you Lord each and every day.
I repent of every word of negativity that I have spoken over myself, my family and I renounce them now in Jesus Name.
Every iota every semblance of unforgiveness that I hold on to in my heart towards anyone or any organization or church fellowship I repent of it now and ask you to forgive me Lord, in Jesus Name I ask it.
I align myself totally with your Word for your Word is truth.
My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and I declare that I will not allow any unholy thought or deed to take hold of me and infact defiling the temple; I am to be holy as He is holy.
I thank you that a life of abundance is mine because Jesus came to give me a life overflowing in abundance.
I thank you that all my sins are washed away and your Word also declares that all my sicknesses are washed away.Ps103: 1-3
I will not give away or break any covenantal rights that are mine because of the new covenant which Jesus has made with me, for what Jesus done was for my healing and deliverance.
I will love and accept myself because you first loved me and I will not despise that which Jesus loves. I thank you for that love which you pour out on me Abba Father. Thank you Jesus.
Your love is so great and I ask you to help me love others the way you love to care like you care, also to be able to show tough love when necessary, let me do all things your way and not mine, your way Lord and not mine.
I listen to the voice of the Lord and follow Him; I will not listen to the voice of another.
I declare that I am a child of the living God, I am adopted into His family and I am an heir to the Kingdom, therefore the
I shall walk with Kingdom authority because God gave authority to mankind over every living thing and through Jesus that dominion authority has been restored and I belong to Jesus Christ.
I will not walk in fear of men because Jesus has not given me a spirit of fear; instead I am empowered by the Holy Spirit and will walk in might and power.
No generational curses will stand within this family because I do not belong under the curse, for freedom is mine, and freedom is theirs because of what Jesus has done. I renounce every curse word spoken over myself and my family throughout the generations. On behalf of my ancestors I repent of every involvement in witchcraft, freemasonry, the occult, religious man-made traditions, every sinful way and I declare that as from now on as for me and my household we shall serve the Lord and Him alone. I declare that my family are being saved in Jesus Name.
I thank you Lord that every generational blessing which has not been taken up by previous generations I can take up now on behalf of myself and my family.
I declare that I am the head and not the tail.
I shall walk in righteousness and I am more than a conqueror through Christ who lives in me.
I will not walk in defeat any longer because the victory is won for the Lord has gone before me into the battle.
His glory lives within me and I shall be salt full of savour and a light that beams strongly into the darkness, for the light of the world indwells me and dispels that darkness.
I welcome you, Holy Spirit to come and fill me now, up and over to overflowing.
I declare that I will walk boldly as a disciple of Jesus Christ, and I will see many healed, saved and delivered and the glory of the latter house shall be much greater than the former.
I declare that seeking your face and more of you is my first priority, that my greatest desire is to draw close to you
IN Jesus Name I make this Declaration
AMEN. Signed this day
Keeping your armour on.
Eph 6:14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
Eph 6:15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
Eph 6:16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
Eph 6:17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Eph 6:18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
a) Loins girded with truth
The first part of the armour is perhaps the most important for us to wear, because the truth that is being m challenged by the powers of darkness constantly . See 2Ti 4:3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; In Jude 3 we are exhorted "to earnestly contend for the faith once delivered to the saints." We really do need to become strong in the Word of God to counter attack the lies of Satan in this day and age.
b) breastplate of righteousness
The Amplified Version reads "having put on the breastplate of integrity and moral rectitude and right standing before God." Isnt it sad to reflect that integrity and moral rectitude are qualities that are not commonly found today, and they are even lacking in the church. Surely in these last days when integrity is becoming an increasing rarity amongst our national leaders, and the moral standards in the world are becoming almost non-existent, it is surely this time for the church to put on the breastplate of righteousness and integrity and shine in this world of darkness and immorality.
c) having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace
The Amplified Version reads "And having shod your feet in preparation to face the enemy with firm footed stability, the promptness produced by the good news of the gospel of peace." The sandals of the Roman soldier were heavy to give sound footing to those who would stand. We are to be prepared to do and suffer all for the sake of the Kingdom; readiness for march as Christian soldiers, readiness to preach the good tidings of peace. In Isaiah 52:7 it says "how beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him who brings good tidings...."
d) Taking the shield of faith with which you can quench all the fiery darts of the evil one.
The shield here is the large heavy shield covering the whole body, in which the fiery darts i.e. the arrows with the points made hot or wrapped with burning tow, may fix and burn themselves out without harm. Polybius, the Greek historian describes their shields "the shield measures 2.5ft x 4ft with a depth of 3" and there is fitted to it an iron boss which wards off great blows from stones and pikes and in general from darts, though hurled with violence.
Satans attack on the church is increasing, and will not cease, particularly as his time grows short, but God has given us the shield of faith which is more than adequate to withstand his every assault. "Resist the Devil and he will flee from you." (James 4:7)
e) And take the helmet of salvation
The soldiers head above the shield was frequently open to attack. The arrow could shoot over the shields edge, and inflict a deadly l blow. We need to protect the mind. In Romans 12:2 Paul exhorts us "to be transformed by the renewal of our mind," and in Ephesians "to be renewed in the spirit of our minds"1Th 5:8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for a helmet, the hope of salvation.
"The head of the soldier was among the principal parts to be defended, as on it the deadliest strokes might fall, and it is the head that commands the whole body. The head is the seat of the mind, which when it has laid hold of the sure Gospel "hope" of eternal life, will not receive false doctrine, or give way to Satans temptations to despair"
f) And the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God
The sword is undoubtedly a very powerful and lethal weapon, and so is the Word of God in the hand of the Christian. Hebrews says "the Word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, of joints and marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. Jesus used this weapon against Satan in the wilderness and it is the weapon God expects us to use in spiritual warfare, but how many of us really know how to use it effectively. Smith Wigglesworth said that he would pay anybody £5 (probably about £100 in todays money), or $190 if they ever caught him without his Bible.
It is quite surprising how many people do not even take their Bibles to church these days isnt it. We need to stay strong in the Word
To sum up God has called us to be soldiers of Christ, but he doesnt want us to be weak, compromising, wishy-washy Christians, but to be soldiers of Christ, ready and prepared for whatever he calls us into, to be prepared for any sacrifice in his service, and to put aside our personal agenda, and work together as one in winning our town, our city and countries for Jesus. This is a challenge as much to myself as much as to anybody else. Let's keep our armour on.
SATAN IS SO VERY REAL, YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT, BUT JESUS SETS US FREE!
JESUS WANTS YOU TO BE SO TOTALLY FREE
You can be free of those deep seated hurts from childhood days,
Someone took advantage of your innocence behind closed doors,
But there was an unseen witness to the proceedings always,
Your Heavenly Father wants to wipe away your tears forever more.
He has watched you hurting there throughout the years,
And He has longed to set you free, wiping away every tear,
His love for you his child is love that goes beyond all measure,
Right now he is beckoning you to come hither, come closer.
You need to recognize what your abusers have done and forgive them,
Remember what we pray Father forgive those who trespass against us,
He has forgiven us of so much, his commandments we have broken,
The blood shed for you wiped away your sins, take all those hurts to Jesus.
Oh dear one, cant you see he felt every hurt, every bit of your pain?
He has cried and travailed with you when you have shed those tears,
Now he wants to take every one of those deep seated night fears,
Giving you a precious new freedom and you will never be bound again.
So take it all to Jesus, ask him to help you to forgive your abusers,
It cant be done on your own, you need to have his help on this,
Remember his love and compassion goes well beyond compare,
Give it all over to him today and he will help you with the forgiveness.
And soon you will know what it is to be so totally free,
For He will do for you what he has already done for me,
Every chain , every shackle, He wants to break away,
That you might know real joy and freedom in him today.
