“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you”
O Lord, the God of my ancestors, You are ruler of all of the kingdoms of the earth. You are powerful and mighty and no one can stand against you! O God, forgive me for every sin which I have committed against not only You, but also against my brothers and sisters in Christ. Preserve me from the deadly pestilence that walks in the darkness, and deliver me from the snare of the enemy. Protect me from the temptation and terror of Satan, for You are my strong fortress, my shield, my sword and buckler.
Everlasting God, I thank you for Your divine power that has preserved me from all injury and danger. Today, I will overtake my enemies with love and declare that I am powerful and unstoppable! I acknowledge that You are my keeper, provider and protector, day after day. I know that it is Your mercy alone that has protected me on all of my paths.
Create in me a clean heart so that I will grow to love those that have wronged me. Help me to forgive those that have despitefully used me and persecuted me, with the intention of harming me.
Encourage and restore the mind of those who battle with a tormented soul! Give them eyes to see You even in the midst of instability and calamity. Move by Your power and renew a right spirit within those who struggle with unstable emotions. If it’s me O God, help me to fight negative feelings and prevent self-destructing behaviors from festering and becoming a hindrance to my growth in You!
Touch the wayward and rebellious mind; give clarity to those thoughts and things which You’ve called me to do! Remove the barriers to forgiveness of others. Pull down every stronghold, and cast aside the burdens and struggles of un-forgiveness! Bind up every spiritual attack that has kept me bound mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually and financially!
Replace fear and doubt, with the fruits of the spirit. Increase my faith and trust in You, O God! All of my help comes from the Lord, maker and creator of the heaven and earth. Instill in me and restore the love of Christ, and incline my heart to love others even when I know they have wronged me. Help me not to retaliate with evil for evil, but to respond with the same love that Christ exemplified when He died on the Cross.
It is through Your Son Jesus Christ that I boldly ask that You would honor these petitions of prayers. Amen.
