A WARRIOR'S PRAYER
Abba Father, Holy Spirit, Our First Love,
As we walk and talk with Thee today and share in Your love, use us to bring down Your Glory; to strike down and bind the schemes and plots of the evil one. Oh, Father, on High, Our Great Redeemer, open our hearts to Thy Will and Thy Way, Lord. Arm Your Warriors for battle, Light the path of Your Followers, strengthen our legs to walk upright in obedience, protect us. Teach us Your Grace and Mercy. Humble our hearts so that our minds will be open to Your Wisdom and Teaching. Remove all doubt and fear so that we walk by Faith and not by sight.
Make us mindful to remember that we do not war against flesh and blood. Ephesians 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Help us to tread upon this carnal world without being pulled into the darkness of sin and iniquity. Help us to be One, in the name of Your Son, Jesus, the Christ. Help us to hold one another up in battle; helping our brother to stand; protecting his back; spurring him on to victory; strengthening his weaknesses; feeling his pain; celebrating his victory; loving him as we love ourselves.
Take us into the heat of battle today to bind Your enemy on earth, as Your Angels bind the adversary in heaven. We walk through the valley of darkness, knowing You are with us. We shall fear no evil for Thou art with us. We rest and abide in Your comfort and blessed assurance that the battle is ours, the victory has been won upon the cross, where our blessed Saviour died.
Oh, Lord, as we walk through the battlefield today. We bind the spirit of fear amongst Your people and cover them with the blood of Jesus. We bind the spirit of fear that is not of God. We bind the spirit of fear that instills the spirits of ignorance, hatred, bitterness, vengeance, greed, jealousy, self-righteousness, covetousness, selfishness and all manners of ungodly thinking.
As we walk through the battlefield today, our feet shod with Your Peace, we remember the nail-scarred hands of our Messiah, who brought peace that passes all understanding. Peace that can only be understood through abiding in Him. Father, we speak YOUR peace upon the nations. Peace that makes the lion lay next to the Lamb. Peace that carries us through the storms of life. Peace that is not self-willed, self-indulgent, and self-righteousness. Peace that brings us to our knees that we may be submissive to Your Everlasting, Magnificent and Glorious Power.
Abba Father, Heavenly Host, Merciful and Most Gracious God, The Great I Am, God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, walk with us through the dry places that we may pour out Living Water upon the masses; that we may resurrect dry bones, the walking-dead who are asleep and dead in sin.
With Your Shield of Faith, we reflect the lying arrows of darkness. Protected by the Helmet of Your Salvation, we proclaim salvation upon Your People--Your Children. Shielded with Your Breastplate of Righteousness and surrounded by Your Belt of Truth, we speak righteousness and Your everlasting Truth to free Your People; to encourage and equip them; and to sustain them through the battle. God let not Your warriors grow weary. We cry out, "God is With You! He will Never Forsake You! To God Be The Glory!"
We shine the Light of Jesus to help them see Your Truth, Your Life, Your Way--the Only Way. We wield the Sword of Your Spirit to cut through the darkness of innocent blood that has been spilled upon Your Holy Ground. We proclaim the righteousness of God--not man.
Oh, Father, we remember and we thank You, that there is a Balm in Gilead to heal the sin-sick soul, there is a Balm in Gilead to make the wounded whole; those who have been dismembered, maimed, crippled, scarred, orphaned, grief-stricken, imprisoned, tortured and lost. Oh, we proclaim Hope to the hopeless, poor and needy. We proclaim Sight to the blind! May the temple of each man, woman and child be cleansed and healed, in the name of Jesus! Lay Your hands of Mercy on the Merciful. Lay Your Strength upon the Righteous. Protect Your Anointed Ones. Uphold Your Covenant! Do not let darkness defile Your Holy Places!
Father, we lay healing hands upon the sick and wounded, proclaiming Your Glory! We see with Your Eyes! We hear with Your Ears! We feel with Your Heart! We proclaim Your Love that has depths that we can not understand! Holy Spirit, use our bodies to do Your Will upon this Earth.
Father, as we walk upon the battlefield today and pass through the shadows of darkness. We proclaim Liberty from the carnal world, that we may help bring Your Kingdom here on Earth as it is in Heaven. Liberty that resounds from Heaven. Liberty that pierces the soul. Liberty that cries out for God's Mercy and Love. Liberty that withstands war, pestilence, disease and evil. Father, we proclaim Divine Health and Healing in our lives and upon Your Children!
Father we proclaim the Freedom and Truth that broke the chains of death; that Freedom and Truth which was given to us when He that loved us was rejected, betrayed, imprisoned, scourged, crucified, buried and rose again on the third day; that Freedom and Truth which ascended into Heaven and now is seated at Your Right Hand. By Him and for Him we are free and free indeed that we may live not for ourselves but for You that made us and gives us all things that we may live in Truth, Holiness and Righteousness to bless our fellow man. And if we choose to curse, rather than bless, than, we are a curse before God and the Truth is not in us.
Father, we bind the pestilence of ignorance that permeates the land. We open the door to Light and Salvation. We set our lamps high for all to see, that they may be drawn to Thee.
Speak to the hearts of Your People, Lord. Let them know that "Vengeance is Mine, Saith the Lord." Show them that they were created to serve one another. Protect the children from the pestilence of hatred that they are taught to drink like wine; that makes them drunk with hatred and revenge; that makes them believe their lives are made valuable by fighting, killing, destroying and blowing up their neighbor.
Father, You have given us our daily bread. You have made a place for us at Your table. Lord, make us worthy to sit at Your Feet and be blessed.
Father, we are not worthy if we hate our neighbor; for You said that a hardened heart can not enter the Kingdom of God. Father, we are not worthy if we take our hands from the plow and look back. Father, we are not worthy if we do not obey Your commandments. Father, we are not worthy, if we do not first seek the Kingdom of Heaven.
How quickly we forget Your deliverance! How quickly we turn from Your Ways and Will for us! How quickly we run to false doctrine when You have made following You simple enough for a child to understand! We would rather follow man instead of God! For man satisfies our carnal needs and self-love. Have mercy upon our weakness! Forgive us, Father, Forgive us!
But man can not make himself holy, so how can he make another holy? Man can not bring righteousness! Man can not bring PEACE!!! Only the hand of God can make the crooked places straight and turn the hearts of our enemies. "Vanity, vanity, said the preacher. All is vanity!" We suffer because we do not turn to God!!!
Father, help us to see our vanity and our vain efforts, that our children will not suffer and go hungry. We cry out for Your Mercy that our land will be healed from the disease of sin that leads to death.
Father, the enemy tries to claim rights without the righteousness of God! Father, darkness veils the eyes of Your enemies, so that they can not see their sin. The eyes of their heart have been seared by hatred and they walk in darkness. They can not see that Your Kingdom has no division, no prejudice and only One Leader and King of Kings. May we thwart their plan for our demise by binding ourselves together to form an impenetrable wall, cemented by faith, surrounded by the overflowing river of Your Love.
Thanks be unto God! We Stand! We Stand Ready and Armed! We Stand Willing, Unbound, Unchained, Untied and Unfettered, through Your Holy Spirit! We Stand As One! Let us press toward The Mark!
Philippians 3:13-15 (KJV)
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.
15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you.
To God Be All the Glory in His Matchless Power, Righteousness and Holiness. Amen. Amen. In Jesus' Name. YES! In Jesus Name; for there is NO OTHER name by which we can be saved from sin. Amen. Amen. Hallelujah! To God, Abba Father, whom we love with all our heart and soul. We worship Thee in Truth and in Spirit. We adore Thee. Amen.
Your Humble Servant,
Ephesians 6:10-18 (NIV)
The Armor of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
19 Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
Romans 13:12-14 (KJV)
12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying.
14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.
1 Peter 4:12-13 (KJV)
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
Romans 8:37-39 (KJV)
37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
