A Warfare Prayer

A Warfare Prayer Before Starting Your Day
Say this prayer at the start of each day and watch the changes that will come into your life.

Heavenly Father, I bow in worship and praise before You. I cover myseIf with the blood of Jesus Christ and claim the protection of the Blood for my family, my finances, my home, my spirit and my soul and body. I surrender myself completely in every area of my life to You.

I take a stand against all the workings of the Devil that would try and hinder me and my family from best serving You. I address myself only to the true and living God who has power and control over everything. Satan I command you and all of your demon forces of darkness in the name of Jesus Christ to leave my presence. I bring the blood of Jesus Christ between the Devil and my family, my home, my finances, my spirit, my soul and body. I declare, therefore, that Satan and his wicked spirits are subject to me in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Furthermore, in my own life today, I destroy and tear down ,all strongholds of Satan and smash the plans of Satan that have been formed against me and my family. I tear down the strongholds of the devil against my mind and I surrender my mind to your blessed Holy Spirit.

I affirm heavenly Father that you have not given me the spirit of fear, but of power and love and of a sound mind. Therefore, I resist the spirit of fear in the name of Jesus the Son of the living God and I refuse to doubt, refuse to worry, because I have authtority over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt me. I claim complete and absolute victory over the force of darkness in the name of Jesus, and bind the Devil and command him to loose my peace, joy, prosperity, and every member of my family for the glory of God and by faith I call it done. I break and smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my emotions today and give my emotions to you, Lord Jesus, realizing that I am the temple of the Holy Spirit.

Again, I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ and pray that the Holy Ghost would bring all the work of the crucifixion, resurrection and all the work of the ascension of the Lord Jesus Christ into my life today. I surrender my life and possessions to you. I refuse to fear, worry or to be discouraged in the name of Jesus. I will not hate, envy or show any type of bitterness toward my brothers, sisters, or my enemies, but will love them with the love of God in my heart by the Holy Ghost.

Open my eyes and show me the areas of my life that do not please you and give me the strength, grace and wisdom to remove any sin or weight that would that would give the devil a foothold against me. I claim in every way the victory of the cross over all satanic forces in my life. I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ with thanksgiving and I welcome the ministry of the Holy Ghost. Amen.  Author Unknown

Arise Daughter

They go from strength to strength.”

Psalm 84:7

They go from strength to strength. There are various renderings of these words, but all of them contain the idea of progress.

Our own good translation of the authorized version is enough for us this morning. “They go from strength to strength.” That is, they grow stronger and stronger. Usually, if we are walking, we go from strength to weakness; we start fresh and in good order for our journey, but by-and-by the road is rough, and the sun is hot, we sit down by the wayside, and then again painfully pursue our weary way. But the Christian pilgrim having obtained fresh supplies of grace, is as vigorous after years of toilsome travel and struggle as when he first set out. He may not be quite so elate and buoyant, nor perhaps quite so hot and hasty in his zeal as he once was, but he is much stronger in all that constitutes real power, and travels, if more slowly, far more surely. Some gray-haired veterans have been as firm in their grasp of truth, and as zealous in diffusing it, as they were in their younger days; but, alas, it must be confessed it is often otherwise, for the love of many waxes cold and iniquity abounds, but this is their own sin and not the fault of the promise which still holds good: “The youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall, but they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles, they shall run and not be weary, and they shall walk and not faint.” Fretful spirits sit down and trouble themselves about the future. “Alas!” say they, “we go from affliction to affliction.” Very true, O thou of little faith, but then thou goest from strength to strength also. Thou shalt never find a bundle of affliction which has not bound up in the midst of it sufficient grace. God will give the strength of ripe manhood with the burden allotted to full-grown shoulders.  C. H. Spurgeon

His Ways Are Everlasting

Habakkuk 3:6
His ways are everlasting.

What He hath done at one time, He will do yet again. Man’s ways are variable, but God’s ways are everlasting. There are many reasons for this most comforting truth: among them are the following-the Lord’s ways are the result of wise deliberation; He ordereth all things according to the counsel of His own will. Human action is frequently the hasty result of passion, or fear, and is followed by regret and alteration; but nothing can take the Almighty by surprise, or happen otherwise than He has foreseen. His ways are the outgrowth of an immutable character, and in them the fixed and settled attributes of God are clearly to be seen. Unless the Eternal One Himself can undergo change, His ways, which are Himself in action, must remain for ever the same. Is He eternally just, gracious, faithful, wise, tender?-then His ways must ever be distinguished for the same excellences. Beings act according to their nature: when those natures change, their conduct varies also; but since God cannot know the shadow of a turning, His ways will abide everlastingly the same. Moreover there is no reason from without which could reverse the divine ways, since they are the embodiment of irresistible might. The earth is said, by the prophet, to be cleft with rivers, mountains tremble, the deep lifts up its hands, and sun and moon stand still, when Jehovah marches forth for the salvation of His people. Who can stay His hand, or say unto Him, What doest Thou? But it is not might alone which gives stability; God’s ways are the manifestation of the eternal principles of right, and therefore can never pass away. Wrong breeds decay and involves ruin, but the true and the good have about them a vitality which ages cannot diminish. This morning let us go to our heavenly Father with confidence, remembering that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, to-day, and for ever, and in Him the Lord is ever gracious to His people.  C. H.
