Prayer For Persecuted Church Sunday
May all who seek to live godly in Christ Jesus, stand fast on God's Word of truth and put on the breastplate of Christ's righteousness. May we walk in His ways of peace, in spirit and in truth, and help us to protect ourselves by grace through faith, as we resolutely stand firm on the many facts of God's Word. May our thoughts and minds be protected from the deceptive lies and wicked deceit of the enemy, as we cover our heads with the helmet of Christ's Salvation, by grace through faith. And may we wield the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God with wisdom and understanding, as we stand firmly grounded on the Rock of our salvation.
Keep us humble before You Father, and may we persevere in continuous, earnest and pleading prayer, knowing that in Christ the enemy is already defeated and in Him, we are called to remain steadfast in the faith, by the power of the Spirit and to the glory of God. In Jesus' name we pray,
No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper and every tongue that rises up against me shall be condemned. I pray that you shut the mouth of the enemy. Every plot and devise he has planned for my life will be brought to naught.
I am a child of God, a high priest in His kingdom. Therefore, the enemy and his vessels have no dominion over my life!
Even though the enemy comes against me, My God is mighty to save and mighty in battle! I rest in you, knowing that vengeance is mine, says the Lord.
Father, today I come to you for strength. God, you said you are my shield. In your Word, you said that you will be with me in the valley and on the mountaintops. You will never leave me nor forsake me.
Abba Father, the enemy is coming against me from all angles. But I choose to stand on your promises. I rest in the comfort of your Word.
Father, I choose to follow your Word and your precepts. Though the enemy comes against me like a roaring lion, seeking to devour me, I rebuke the devourer from my life, in the name of Jesus.
