Heavenly Father, I bow in worship and praise before You, and I give You all honor and glory. I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ as my protection and recommit myself to Him as my Lord and Savior. I surrender myself completely and unreservedly in every area of my life to You. Through the authority You have given me, I take a stand against all the workings of Satan that would hinder me in my prayer life. I address myself only to the True and Living God and refuse any involvement of Satan in my prayer.

I am thankful, Heavenly Father, that You have loved me from before the foundation of the world and that You sent Your son Jesus Christ into the world to die as my substitute and that through Him You have completely redeemed and forgiven me; You have adopted me into Your family; You have given me eternal life; You have given me the perfect righteousness of the Lord Jesus Christ so I am now justified. I am thankful that in Him You have made me complete, and that You have offered Yourself to me to be my daily help and strength. I am grateful, Heavenly Father, that the Lord Jesus Christ spoiled all principalities and powers and made a show of them openly and triumphed over them in Himself.

I am thankful that the victory the Lord Jesus Christ won for me on the Cross and in His resurrection has been given to me and that I am seated with the Lord Jesus Christ in the heaven lies.

I recognize by faith that all wicked spirits and Satan himself are under my feet. I declare, therefore, that Satan and his wicked spirits are subject to me in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I am thankful for the Armor You have provided. I put on the Girdle of Truth, the Breast-plate of Righteousness, the Sandals of Peace and the Helmet of Salvation. I lift up the Shield of Faith against all the fiery darts of the enemy; and I take in my hand the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. I choose to use Your Word against all the for sees of evil in my life.

I choose Heavenly Father, to live in obedience to You and in fellowship with You. Open my eyes and show me the areas of my life that do not please You. Work in me to cleanse me from all ground that would give Satan a foothold against me. I do in every way stand into all that it means to be Your adopted child and I welcome all the ministry of the Holy Spirit.

Holy Spirit, I pray that You would fill me and enable me to live my life reflecting Your fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and
self-control. Come into my life, break down every idol and cast out every foe.

I surrender myself completely to You. I submit my will, my rights, and all control to you, Lord Jesus Christ. I choose not to be con formed to this world. I choose to be trans-formed by the renewing of my mind, and I pray that you would show me Your will and enable me to walk in all the fullness of Your will today.

I am thankful, Heavenly Father, that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, to the casting down of imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and to bring every thought into obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, in my own life today, I cancel all assignments of the enemy set against me. I tear down the strongholds of Satan and smash the plans of Satan that have been formed against me. I affirm, Heavenly Father, that You have not given me the spirit of fear, but of power and of love, and of a sound mind. I rejoice in Your mercy and goodness.

Heavenly Father, I pray that now and through this day, You would strengthen and enlighten me, show me the way Satan is hindering and tempting and lying and distorting the truth in my life. Enable me to be a person who pleases You. Enable me to be dedicated to prayer and strong in faith. Enable me to continually think about and practice Your Word, and to give You Your rightful place in my life. Enable me through Your power and authority to be victorious over evil.

I refuse to be discouraged. You are the God of all hope. You have proven Your power by resurrecting Jesus Christ from the dead, and I claim in every way this victory over the
satanic forces in my life. I pray in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ with thanksgiving. Amen.
