Prayers

The best advice I ever received was the suggestion by Norman Vincent Peale to get up an hour earlier every morning and pray asking God to help me understand the Bible, (His word) and read it. Following that advice every morning changed everything in my life for the better and it keeps getting better and better. I want to share a habit that I finally started at the beginning of this year and I am elated with the results.

Because of my battles in spiritual warfare, essentially feeling like I was getting my but kicked by Satan at least weekly if not daily, I took John Eldredge up on his daily prayer from the book Moving Mountains: Praying with Passion, Confidence and Authority similarly it changed so many struggles in my life. I began this year and as I pray I started adding my own stuff as I felt led. This created more intimacy and richness I can’t even begin to explain it all. You may have heard me speak of getting advance words from Jesus, my families blessings, or more freedom from pornography and other addictions. Below is the prayer I have been praying in its transition as I feel led. My advice is to get the habit, I have no doubt as you meet with Jesus daily you will never look back, I know I won’t.

The “Extended” Daily Prayer , John Eldredge. Moving Mountains: Praying with Passion, Confidence, and Authority (pp. 237-238). Thomas Nelson. Kindle Edition. With Robby’s additions in red.

Our Father in heaven, sanctified be Your Name. Your Kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Be blessed to give us this day our daily bread and be blessed to forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us, and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the Kingdom and the power and the glory forever, Amen.

My dear Lord Jesus, I come to you now to be restored in you, (Jesus thank you for getting me up and believing in me that I would move closer to you this day. That You will move the Kingdom forward through me and my life offered to You) renewed in you, to receive your life and love and all the grace and mercy,(Hebrew MERCY as renewed in the womb born again) I so desperately need this day. I honor you as my Lord, and I surrender every aspect and dimension of my life to you— my spirit, soul, and body; my heart, mind, and will. I cover myself with your blood— my spirit, soul, and body; my heart, mind, and will. I ask your Holy Spirit to restore me in you, renew me in you, and lead me in this time of prayer. In all that I now pray, I stand in total agreement with your Spirit and with all those praying for me by the Spirit of God, and by the Spirit of God alone.*

Dearest God— holy and victorious Trinity— you alone are worthy of all my worship, my heart’s devotion, all my praise, all my trust, and all the glory of my life. I love you, I worship you, I give myself over to you in my heart’s search for life. You alone are Life, and you have become my life. I renounce all other gods, I renounce every idol, and I give to you, God, the place in my heart and in my life that you truly deserve. This is all about you, and not about me. You are the Hero of this story, and I belong to you. I ask your forgiveness for my every sin. I renounce sin. Search me, know me, and reveal to me where you are working in my life, and grant to me the grace of your healing and deliverance, and a deep and true repentance.

Heavenly Father, thank you for loving me and choosing me before you made the world. You are my true Father— my creator, redeemer, sustainer— and the true end of all things, including my life. I love you, I trust you, I worship you. I give myself over to you, Father, to be one with you as Jesus is one with you. Thank you for proving your love for me by sending Jesus. I receive him and all his life and all his work which you ordained for me. Thank you for including me in Christ, forgiving me my sins, granting me his righteousness, making me whole and complete in him. Thank you for making me alive with Christ, raising me with him, seating me with him at your right hand, establishing me in his authority, and anointing me with your love and your kingdom. I receive it all with thanks and give it total claim to my life— my spirit, soul, and body; my heart, mind, and will.

I now bring the life and the work of Jesus Christ over my spirit, soul, and body; my heart, mind, and will; over [my wife and children]; our home, this house, and everything in it; over my work; my vehicles and finances; over all my kingdom and domain.

Jesus, thank you for coming to ransom me with your own life. I love you, I worship you, I trust you. I give myself over to you, to be one with you in everything. I receive again all the work and triumph in your cross, blood, and sacrifice for me, through which my every sin is atoned for; I am ransomed and delivered from the kingdom of darkness; transferred to your kingdom; my sin nature is removed and my heart circumcised unto God; and every claim being made against me is cancelled and disarmed. I give myself to you again in your cross and death, dying with you to sin, to my flesh, to this world, to the evil one and his kingdom. I take up the cross and crucify my flesh with all its pride, arrogance, unbelief, and idolatry [and anything else you are currently struggling with].

(Fame mongering, seeking social numbers, followers, views, attendees, listeners, stations for my self embellishment and vain glory. Jesus help me dig up this root.)

( Porno… distorted images of intimacy gone horribly wrong… twisted wounded girls perhaps even tortured who want to unveil their beauty in a false empty hope that true love is there somehow, but you look and you join in the perversion looking for beauty and intimacy….but it wounds you, takes your strength like Sampson with your breastplate off your eyes go dark and you grope around not knowing where to strike back. Shame, shame is there, Satan has duped you, set a snare for your very soul its beyond ugly not at all what it appears… I TAKE UP MY INNOCENCE CARD and cover my sexuality in your blood, Jesus pure as I was designed to be.

I put off the old man.

I now bring the blood and sacrifice over our union and over my life— my spirit, mind, thoughts, imagination, and gifting; my will, warrior, motive, and aim; my understanding, discernment, and perception; over my sexuality and sensitivity; over my heart and soul and body. I bring your blood and sacrifice over [my wife and children— their spirits, souls, and bodies; their hearts, minds, and will]; over this home, this house, and everything in it; over my work; my vehicles and finances; over all my kingdom and domain.

I now bring the cross, death, blood, and sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ against Satan, against his kingdom, against every foul and unclean spirit, every foul power and black art, against every witch, cult, and coven, every trafficking spirit,* against this city, and all cities, counties, states, nations, and kingdoms, and against every human being and his spirit, his warfare and household. I bring the cross, death, blood, and sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ to the borders of my kingdom and domain, and I stake it there in Jesus’ name. (I chose to orient myself in the Larger Story of your advancing Kingdom and eventual return in the flesh…to take part in the Family Business.)

Jesus, I also sincerely receive you as my Life, and I receive all the work and triumph in your resurrection, through which you have conquered sin, death, judgment, and the evil one. Death has no power over you, nor does any foul thing. And I have been raised with you to a new life, to live your life— dead to sin and alive to God. I take my place now in your resurrection and in your life, and I give my life to you to live your life. I am saved by your life. I reign in life through your life. I receive your hope, love, joy, and faith (Lord please be blessed to increase my faith and trust then to rest in the delight in the fear of You); your beauty, goodness, and trueness; your wisdom, power, and strength, (health); your holiness and integrity , (financial) in all things.

I now bring the life, resurrection, and empty tomb over our union and over my life— my spirit, mind, thoughts, imagination, and gifting; my will, warrior, motive, and aim; my understanding, discernment, and perception; over my sexuality and sensitivity; over my heart and soul and body. I bring your life, resurrection, and empty tomb over [my wife and children— their spirits, souls, and bodies; their hearts, minds, and will]; (May Tammy, Leslie, Robby, Tess, Mariah, Lila, Kash, David, Lexi, Audrey, Averie, Smantha, Chris, Brandon, Joshua and Denaiha grow in wisdom stature and favor with God and man.) over this home, this house, and everything in it; over my work; my vehicles and finances; over all my kingdom and domain.

I now bring the life, resurrection, and empty tomb of the Lord Jesus Christ against Satan, against his kingdom, against every foul and unclean spirit, every foul power and black art, against every witch, cult, and coven, every trafficking spirit, against this city, and all cities, counties, states, nations, and kingdoms, and against every human being and his spirit, his warfare and household. I bring the life, resurrection, and empty tomb of the Lord Jesus Christ to the borders of my kingdom and domain, and I stake it there in Jesus’ name.

Jesus, I also sincerely receive you as my authority, rule, and dominion, my everlasting victory against Satan and his kingdom, and my ability to bring your kingdom at all times and in every way. I receive all the work and triumph in your ascension, through which Satan has been judged and cast down, and all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to you. All authority in the heaven realms and all authority on this earth has been given to you, Jesus— and you are worthy to receive all glory and honor, power and dominion, now and forever. I take my place now in your authority and in your throne, (Jesus your faith in me is divine and You made me to have what it takes to do this) through which I have been raised with you to the right hand of the Father and established in your authority. I give myself to you, to reign with you always.

I call down your glory and dominion (Knock…Lord I’M Knocking….May I come into heaven where you are and commune with you…please Lord Jesus…I am listening…What is my WORD for today?) over union and over my life— my spirit, mind, thoughts, imagination, and gifting; my will, warrior, motive, and aim; my understanding, discernment, and perception (calling); over my sexuality and sensitivity; over my heart and soul and body. I call down glory and dominion over [my wife and children— their spirits, souls, and bodies; their hearts, minds, and will]; over this home, this house, and everything in it; over my work; over my vehicles and finances; over all my kingdom and domain.

I now bring the authority, rule, and dominion of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the full work of Christ, against Satan, against his kingdom, against every foul and unclean spirit— every ruler, power authority, and spiritual force of wickedness, every backup and replacement, every weapon claim and device. [I will name them very specifically now, all I know has been attacking me and all I sense by the Holy Spirit is staged against me this day . . . ]. I order them gagged and bound to the judgment of Jesus Christ for them, their backups and replacements, every weapon, claim, and device— by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ and in his name. I call down the judgment of the Lord Jesus Christ upon the heads of those that refuse to obey, and I send them to their judgment, by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ and in his name.

I now bring the blood, death, and sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ; I call down the judgment of Christ against every foul power, channel and practitioner of black arts. I send the glory of the Lord to them to cut them off and turn them in Jesus’ name. I order the trafficking spirit to the throne of Jesus Christ to receive revelation, discipline, and judgment, and then bound to those judgments by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ and in his name.

I bring the kingdom of God throughout my kingdom and domain against this city, and all cities, counties, states, nations, and kingdoms.

I now bring the authority, rule, and dominion of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the fullness of the work of Christ between me and every human being— his spirit, soul, and body; his sin, warfare, corruption, (ENVY) and projection [extended family members, people I have been counseling, etc.]. I command their human spirits bound back to their bodies, and their sin, warfare, corruption, (ENVY) and projection bound to the work of Christ in their lives. I allow only the love of Christ and the kingdom of God between me and every human being, in Jesus’ name.

Holy Spirit, thank you for coming. I love you, I worship you, I trust you. I honor you as Lord of my home, family, kingdom, and domain. I receive all the work and triumph in Pentecost, through which you have come; you have clothed me with power from on high; sealed me in Christ; become my union with the Father and the Son; the Spirit of truth in me, the life of God in me; my counselor, comforter, strength, and guide. I honor you as Lord, and I fully give to you every aspect and dimension of my spirit, soul, and body; my heart, mind, and will— to be filled with you, to walk in step with you in all things. Fill me (Fill US with Wisdom, Understanding, Counsel, Might, Knowledge, Fear of the Lord and Delight in the fear of the Lord) afresh, Holy Spirit. Restore my union with the Father and the Son. Lead me into all truth, anoint me for all of my life and walk and calling, and lead me deeper into Jesus today.(Lord sow seed that I would be rich fertile, valley of humiliation soil ready to eat and digest and know that in Your presence is fullness of joy) I receive you with thanks, and I give you total claim to my life.

Heavenly Father, thank you for granting to me every spiritual blessing in Christ Jesus. I claim the riches in Christ Jesus over my life today [my wife and children]. Thank you for your armor; I put on the belt of truth (Is there an agreement a lie I can see to break this morning?), breastplate of righteousness, shoes of the gospel, helmet of salvation; I take up the shield of faith and sword of the Spirit, and I choose to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of your might, to pray at all times in the Spirit.

Jesus, thank you for your angels. I summon them in the name of Jesus Christ and with love and blessing I instruct them to carry out these orders, to destroy all that is raised against me, to establish your kingdom throughout my home, vehicles, work; to rebuild the shields of protection; and to minister to us your ministry.* I ask you to send forth your Spirit to raise up the full canopy of prayer and intercession for us. I now call forth the kingdom of God throughout my home, my household, my kingdom and domain, in the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ, giving all glory and honor and thanks to him. In Jesus’ name, (Thank You God all three for the amazing life, love, family, friends, ministry, gifts, provision and joy. Thank you so much for the intimacy of our relatiosnship… I love, trust and worship You, Father, Jesus, Holy Spirit Amen and) amen.
