Dear heavenly Father, I call on you today as a blood-bought child of God asking for Your help and protection in this time of spiritual attack. I believe that Jesus died for my sins and that through His death and resurrection, sin, death and Satan are a once and forever defeated enemy. In Christ Jesus my Lord, I have victory over all the powers of darkness that would seek to spiritually shipwreck my trust and faith in Jesus Christ my Savior ….

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 ….

Help me Father to maintain my spiritual focus on You, knowing that all too often I find that my thoughts are enticed away from You by the attractions of this world, while at other times I find myself questioning all that is going on in the world and wondering why there are so many distressing situations and so many heart-breaking difficulties that people inevitably have to endure. Help me not to lose my spiritual focus on You, knowing that You have an eternal perspective and that Your plans and purposes are working towards their final and glorious conclusion ….

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
