Becoming a Spiritual and Prayer Warrior

  • Relationship is the key. Without a close relationship with Christ, we have no basis for taking authority over Satan and he knows it. - From location  334 in the Kindle Book “The Spiritual Warrior’s Prayer Guide: Find Breakthrough in Any Situation" by Quin Sherrer, Ruthanne B. Garlock.
  • THANK YOU, Jesus, that because I have received You I am a child of God. Thank You that You have paid the price for me to be cleansed from all sin.

Thank You that I am now an heir of all that You, heavenly Father, have for Your children. Thank You for giving me authority to pray and to know that You hear and will answer my prayers according to Your will and Your time. Enable me to always hear Your call to intercede.

  • LORD, teach me to become the prayer warrior You have called me to be. Help me to pray without ceasing so that I can be in constant contact with You.

Enable me to live, “not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord, rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer” (Romans 12:11-12).

  • Thank You that You will complete the work You have begun in me (Philippians 1:6). Show me where I have pride so I can repent of it. I don’t want to fall into being prideful and fall out of Your grace (James 4:6). Show me how to resist pride in myself the way You resist those who entertain it. Enable me to love others the way You do. I know that to do otherwise does not please You (1 John 3:10). Give me Your love for others in a way that causes it to overflow my heart and pour out in my actions and prayers toward them.  In Jesus’ name I pray.  - From location 247 the Kindle book "Prayer Warrior Book of Prayers" by Stormie Omartian.

  • Paul said we should put on the whole armor of God to fight this spiritual battle—things like the belt of truth, the body armor of God’s righteousness, the shoes of peace, the helmet of salvation, and the shield of faith.58 But how, on earth, does one put on things like that? The answer is we put these on with prayer, by praying “in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion.”59 The point is, the spiritual armor we wear to fight the battle is not a collection of inanimate objects, of “things.” The armor is God. That’s why we pray to fight. - Patterson, Ben (2008-09-22). God's Prayer Book: The Power and Pleasure of Praying the Psalms (p. 33). Tyndale House Publishers - A. Kindle Edition. 
  • Lord, please help me to put on the full spiritual armor You have provided for me so that I can “stand against the wiles of the devil” every day (Ephesians 6:11). Help me to put on the breastplate of righteousness that protects me from the enemy’s attacks. I know it is Your righteousness in me that protects me, but I also know I must not neglect to put on Your righteousness like a bulletproof vest by doing what is right in Your eyes. Show me what I have done, or am about to do, that does not glorify You. I want to see anything in me that violates Your high standards for my life so I can confess it, turn away from it, and be cleansed from all unrighteousness. In Jesus’ name I pray.  - From location 274 the Kindle book "Prayer Warrior Book of Prayers" by Stormie Omartian.  
  • Heavenly Father, thank You that Jesus paid the price to assure the enemy’s certain defeat! Thank You that when we remain submitted to Christ, He invests us with the authority to use His name against the strategies of the evil one. Lord, strengthen me to do this with boldness and to see victories that will bring praise and honor to You alone. Thank You for the privilege of being Your representative in the earth. Amen. - From location  404 in the Kindle Book “The Spiritual Warrior’s Prayer Guide: Find Breakthrough in Any Situation" by Quin Sherrer, Ruthanne B. Garlock.
  • PRAYER FOR PEACE IN RELATIONSHIPS LORD -  I lift up to You my important relationships. Bless them with Your peace and love. Where any relationship I have does not glorify You, I pray You will show me clearly. I pray for relationship with my family members and friends. Specifically, I pray for my relationship with (name a family member or friend you are most concerned about). Help us to not seek our own well-being, but each other’s (1 Corinthians 10: 24). Help us to “be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another” (Romans 12: 10). Help me to be always forgiving and able to show Your love to another . I pray the enemy cannot put a wedge between us because of our own selfishness. In Jesus’ name I pray. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. PHILIPPIANS 2: 3-4. - Omartian, Stormie (2013-09-01). Prayer Warrior Book of Prayers (pp. 113-114).

Garlock.
  • PRAYER FOR DELIVERANCE AND FREEDOM LORD -  I know the enemy wants us all to live in condemnation , but You set us free from our sins and the consequences of them if we confess them before You. Thank You that if I confess my sins, You are faithful and just to forgive my sin and to cleanse me from all unrighteousness (1 John 1: 9). “O God, You know my foolishness; and my sins are not hidden from You ” (Psalm 69: 5). Free me from my sins, for they are a heavy burden that is “too heavy for me” (Psalm 38: 4). I refuse to allow the enemy of my soul to throw guilt in my face. Your blood on the cross , Jesus, has paid the price for my sins. In Jesus’ name I pray. If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 CORINTHIANS 5: 17Omartian, Stormie (2013-09-01).

Because I have peace with You and from You, I am able to not only stand strong but to walk forward against the enemy and take back territory he has stolen from us all. Thank You also that You have given me faith and have grown my faith in Your Word. I don’t have faith in my own faith, as if I have accomplished anything myself, but I have faith in You and Your faithfulness to me, which is a shield from the enemy’s arrows. In Jesus’ name I pray.  - From location 287 the Kindle book "Prayer Warrior Book of Prayers" by Stormie Omartian.  
  • Lord, help me to put on the helmet of salvation to protect my head and mind each day by remembering all You have saved me from, including the lies of the enemy.

  • LORD, help me to understand what my spiritual weapons are and to become proficient in the use of them. Teach me so I don’t forget for even a moment how powerful they are. Grow my faith to believe You and Your Word without doubt. I know that as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are Your ways higher than my ways, and Your thoughts higher than my thoughts (Isaiah 55:9).

Enable me to know Your Word so well that I have Scriptures in my mind and heart that become automatic weapons against the enemy of my soul.

Teach me to recognize the plans of the enemy and take dominion over his tactics in prayer. Help me to respond immediately.

I know that my weapons are spiritual, and I am empowered by You to use them on any battlefield that presents itself to me. Thank You that Your angel encamps around me and delivers me and those for whom I pray (Psalm 34:7). Thank You that You give Your angels charge over me and my family to keep us safe and lift us up when we stumble (Psalm 91:11-12). In Jesus’ name I pray. Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, even the Most High, your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, nor shall any plague come near your dwelling; for He shall give His angels charge over you, to keep you in all your ways. PSALM 91:9-11. - From location 406 in the Kindle book "Prayer Warrior Book of Prayers" by Stormie Omartian.  
  • LORD, help me to submit myself to You in every possible way. Show me any place in my life where I am not doing that. I don’t ever want to seek friendship with the world because I value friendship with You far above all else. Reveal any pride in me so I can repent of it. Cause that recognition to bring the grief and mourning to my soul that it should. I refuse all pride and rebellion in me against You and recognize that they are traits of the enemy. I don’t want to ever go against Your will and cooperate with the enemy in any way. I want to resist him in every way possible so that You will not resist me.  In Jesus’ name I pray. Submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. JAMES 4:7-8. - From location 420 in the Kindle book "Prayer Warrior Book of Prayers" by Stormie Omartian.
