Spiritual Warfare & Oppression


For Self:

Dear Lord God, I am weak. You are all powerful. I need you and your strength. I choose to draw near to you and submit to you, Lord. Help me to resist the devil and his temptations. Thank you that he has already been overcome by the blood of the Lamb and by my testimony that I belong to Jesus. Cover my head with the helmet of salvation. Cover my ears and protect me from the lies of the devil. Cover my heart with the breastplate of righteousness which is mine because Jesus has taken away my sin. Give me your shield of faith so I can extinguish all the flaming arrows that try to hurt me. Thank you for your amazing Word, which is my sword, that gives victory over all spiritual oppression. Help me to memorize it and use it to counter Satan’s lies. Hold me together with the belt of truth. Make my feet ready to go wherever you lead, fitted with the gospel of peace. Send your Holy Spirit to guide, equip, cover and protect me. Remind me often that the devil was defeated at the cross and nothing he can say or do to me will change the undeniable, precious truth that I am safe in your loving arms for all eternity. In the strong and powerful name of Jesus, my Rescuer, I pray - Amen.

“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Come near to God and he will come near to you.” (James 4:7-8)

“The accuser of our brothers who accuses them before our God...has been hurled down. They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony.” (Revelation 12:10-11)

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace. In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. (Ephesians 6:10-18)

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers,neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
