Below are some examples of prayers that can be used in spiritual warfare.  They are just general suggestions to help you get started.  There is nothing magical or special about using these exact words.  You can use any words you choose.  These are to help you have an idea of how you can pray and what you can pray for.  The disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray.  Often no one has taught us how to pray in spiritual warfare.  Use them as they are or pray the same things in your own words.

PRAYER FOR SALVATION

“Dear Jesus, I recognize my need of you.  I know I sin and am guilty in your sight.  Thank you for leaving heaven to come to earth and die on the cross for my sins.  I know you took my eternal condemnation on Yourself on the cross and paid for it all. Please forgive sin and fill me with Your Holy Spirit.  I freely accept your gift of salvation.  I want to live for you and only you.  I put you first in my life and want to serve You.  I reject any other forces or powers and forbid any them to have any influence on me. Dear Jesus, fill me and use me. Thank you for hearing and answering me.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.”

            I know that you have not given me a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).  Therefore I turn from any fear in my life.  I ask You to reveal to me all the areas where the sin of fear as affected me.  Show me the lies I have believed and help me to believe Your truth instead.  I desire to live in faith by the power of Your Holy Spirit.  Fill me with Your presence and Your Spirit so I can follow You by faith.  In Jesus’ name.  Amen.

Remove and destroy all objects of false worship, then pray this aloud in every room.  Using your finger to print small crosses of oil on the doors and walls is good to do.  Also, leaving a light on (against darkness) and/or music praising Jesus playing in the room is also good.  Demons don’t like light or hearing Jesus praised.

“Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that You are the Lord of heaven and earth.  In Your sovereign power and love, You have entrusted us with this place to live and we thank You for it.  I dedicate this place to You for Your honor and glory.  I pray this would be a place of spiritual, emotional and physical safety and blessing for me and my family and ask for Your protection from all the attacks of the enemy.

PRAYER FOR THE ARMOR OF GOD

Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for providing the spiritual armor we need as we live for you each day.  I thank you for it.  Help me to apply it and use it in my daily walk with you. 

First, I put on the helmet of salvation and I ask that you would protect my mind and my thoughts so that every thought is captive to Your Spirit.  I thank you for the salvation you have provided for me and I pray you would help me apply it to evry area of my life.  Line up all my thoughts with your truth so that I view everything through the grid of your Biblical world view.

Next I put on the breastplate of righteousness, your holiness applied to every area of my life.  I know I cannot do anything to please you, but I also know that the blood of Jesus has made me clean and I thank you for that.  Cover me and my sin with your righteousness, and help me to live a life of holiness in everything I think, do and say. 

Then I put on the belt of truth.  I need your Spirit to keep me focused on the truth of Your Word so Im not distracted by Satan’s lies and deceptions.  Show me where I may be open to these and keep me in your truth. 

On my feet I put the sandals of peace which you have provided.  Help me to stand firm in the peace you provide.  I reject any fear, worry, anger or turmoil in my life and I focus my full attention on You, Lord Jesus.  I thank you for my emotions but I pray you keep them from ruling in my life.  Help me make sure my mind explains reality to my emotions.  Help me to live in peace with you and all people, and to share this peace with everyone whose life touches mine.

            Finally, but most importantly, I take the sword of the Spirit, my only offensive weapon.  I know your Word is my key to victory.  Help me learn it, memorize it and recall verses that apply to each situation I will face today.  Create in me a hunger and thirst to study and know Your Word.   Enable me to memorize it and to meditate upon its truth.  Grant me proficient recall and skill in using Your Word against all of Satan’s subtle attacks against me, even as my Lord Jesus Christ used the Word against Satan.  Enable me to use Your Word not only to defend me from Satan, but also to claim its promises and to wield the sword strong against Satan to defeat him, to push him back, to take away from him ground he claims, and to win great victories God through Your Word.  Thank You that Satan must retreat from Your Word applied against him.

            Father, I thank you for providing these for me and I ray You would help me remember and use them throughout the day.  Help me become more skillful each day in suing the equipment you have provided.  Thank you.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  Amen.
