Lord as I stand before you, I know that I am united in Christ and that there is nothing that I should fear. I know that Satan has a hatred of all those that are called by Your name, and that he schemes and plots against those that are positioned in Christ. Deliver me I pray from the dangers and evils with which the forces of evil would seek to ensnare me and keep me, I pray, from all forms of temptation, so that I do not give the devil a foot-hold in my life ….
Keep my heart from worldly pursuits and also help me not to become discouraged or worried when we hear of the problems and pain of others, even though my heart may be breaking. I know that our times are in Your hands and You have promised to right all wrongs, in Your own time and Your own way. Help me rather to be able to share the truth of the gospel with whomever You place in my path and may I lift up the name of Jesus not only in what I say but in how I live. Thank You for the spiritual armour with which I can clothe myself daily and keep me alert to the devil’s schemes and may I resist all his advances against me in the power and strength of the Holy Spirit. All this I ask in the name of the Lord Jesus, Who died and rose again so that Satan’s power over my life would be forever severed – and in Whose name I pray, Amen
