Please pray the following prayer with us against the enemy on behalf of our girls and their families:
Jesus, we recognize that the enemy is at work again. He’s trying to discourage us to sidetrack us from working through our issues by tempting us, causing us to give up or take our eyes off You.
We need your supernatural power, Lord, to stand strong and not surrender. Physical force won’t help, because You’ve said the weapons of our warfare are different from those in this world. As believers, ours are powerful and can demolish strongholds and lies. These weapons originate from You. By Your precious name and blood, Jesus, we’re asking you to confuse Satan and cancel his attempts to shut down Your influence upon us. Help us not to become discouraged or to give in when heavy times of testing come.
We know that when we are weak, You, Lord, are strong, and You are our only source of help. We cannot fight without You. Teach all of us how to pray to trust You to pull down those strongholds that keep us or others helpless. Guard us from isolation that leaves us exposed and vulnerable. You destroyed the enemy by Your death and resurrection. But the enemy keeps showing up, whispering lies, twisting truth, and attempting to inflate our selfish pride; he never gives up.
We are declaring the devil and his demons liars today, Lord. Through the power of Your precious name and blood, we agree with Your word and prayer, Lord, are our secret weapons. We belong to You, and that fills us with a powerful God-confidence. We want to constantly dress in the spiritual armor You give us. Help us use it to defend others from Satan’s fiery darts as well. No one and nothing can snatch us away from Your hand.
Strengthen our faith, Lord. Forgive our sins so that we may be clean in Your righteousness. Make us brave, so we can stand and fight the spiritual battles in our lives and in our world. Give us Your wisdom and discernment so we won’t be caught off guard. Together, Lord, we’ll win because in truth, You already have.
In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen! (Prayer by Crosswalk)
