Prayer Topic #2:
A Prayer for Destroying Enemy Tactics
John 8:44, Revelation 12:10
Reflections of the Heart:
God says, “Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand,” (Isaiah 41:10). Therefore, with the Lord on my side, I will destroy the tactics of the enemy.
Our Father, thank You for being our Warrior, Yahweh is Your name! Thank you, Lord God, for going with us! You fight against our enemies and give us victory! Thank You for enabling us to take our positions, stand still, and watch the Lord’s victory!
Righteous Father, we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers, and evil spirits in the heavenly places. Today we dress ourselves in Your armor so that we will be able to stand firm against all strategies of evil. We will stand our ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. Being fully prepared, we put on our shoes of peace that come from the Good News, and hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. We put on salvation as our helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. We will always pray in the Spirit and on every occasion; staying alert and being persistent in our prayers for all believers everywhere. We stand firm against every demonic attack in the form of active shooters, bullies, terrorists, character assassins, abusers, rebels, and rivals. No weapon that is turned against us will succeed! We silence every voice raised up to accuse us, for the Lord is our vindicator. The thief may come to steal, kill, and destroy, but Lord Your promise is to give us a rich and satisfying life. We declare that every enemy is destroyed in the name and power of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Ask Holy Spirit to give you insight on who in your life needs intercession against spiritual warfare:
Holy Spirit, help us to stay alert, and watch out for our enemy, the devil, who prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Although we are human, help us not to fight as humans do, but use God’s mighty weapons (not the world’s weapons), to knock down and destroy strongholds of human reasoning and false arguments. Lord God, teach us how to humble ourselves before You and resist the devil, so he will flee from us! We will not embrace a spirit of fear or timidity, but walk in power, love, and self-discipline.
Merciful Father, forgive us for all acts of sinfulness. Forgive us for not standing in our power and authority as Your sons and daughters. Forgive us for failing to recognize that the Spirit who lives in us is greater than that which lives in this world. Father, forgive us for acting religious, but rejecting the power that could make us more Godly. Holy Spirit, remind us of those we need to forgive and help us to be quick to forgive ourselves and others.
Holy Spirit, help us not to yield to temptation but deliver us from the evil one.
Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle. The Lord Himself will fight for us when we just stay calm! All honor and glory to God forever and ever! He is the eternal King, the unseen One who never dies; He alone is God. In Jesus’ name, amen.
