Ephesians 1:17-23 Prayer.
Heavenly Father, I pray according to Your Word, Ephesians 1:17-23, that You will give me a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Christ Jesus. I pray that the eyes of my understanding will be enlightened so I may know what is the hope of the calling of Christ Jesus and the riches of the glory of Christ Jesus’ inheritance to the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of Your power towards me who believes, according to the working of Your mighty power which You used to raise Christ Jesus from the dead and seated Him at Your right hand in heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age which is to come. Heavenly Father, I thank You that You put all things under the feet of Jesus, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all. Heavenly Father, open my eyes that I may see how great You are and how complete Your provisions are for me. I thank You that the victory that Jesus won for me on the Cross and in His resurrection has been given to me and I am seated with the Lord Jesus in the heavenlies. Heavenly Father, by faith and in dependence upon You; I put off the fleshly works of the old man and stand unto all the victory of the crucifixion where the Lord Jesus provided cleansing from the old nature. I put on myself the new man and I stand into all the victory of the resurrection and the provisions that the Lord Jesus has made for me. Heavenly Father, I put off all forms of selfishness and put on myself the new nature of Jesus Christ with its love. I put off all forms of fear and put on the new nature of courage in Jesus Christ. Lord, help me to stand in the victory of the ascension and glorification of the Lord Jesus, whereby all principalities and powers were made subject to Him. I claim my place in Jesus as victorious with Him over all the enemies of my soul. Holy Spirit, I pray that You will come into my life, breakdown every idol and cast out every foe and continually lead me in prayer. I am thankful Heavenly Father for the expression of Your will for my daily life that You have shown me in Your Word. By the power of the Lord Jesus; I claim all the will and destiny of God for me. I am thankful that You have blessed me with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. I am thankful that You have begotten me unto a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. I am thankful that You have made provision for me so that I can be filled with the Spirit of God with love, joy, peace, with longsuffering, gentleness and goodness, with meekness, faithfulness and self-control in my life. I recognize Your will for me and I therefore reject and resist all the efforts of satan and his wicked spirits to rob me of the will of God. Lord Jesus, I ask You to put a hedge of protection around my mind to protect me from the enemy of all accusations, insinuations and lies. I claim the fullness of the will of God for my life. In the Name of Jesus, I completely surrender myself to You Heavenly Father, as a living sacrifice. I choose not to be conformed to this world. I choose to be transformed by the renewing of my mind and I pray that You would show me Your will and enable me to walk in Your will. I bind my will to the will of God, I bind my mind to the mind of Christ. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen!

I pray for all members of congress and of the armed forces of our nation, all of our intercessors and all people of Israel. Heavenly Father, I ask You to allow us to dwell in the secret place of the most High and to abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

I ask You to cover each of us with Your feathers and let us walk under Your wings to take refuge. I ask You to let Your faithfulness and truth be our shield and armor. I thank you Lord that we will not be afraid of the terror by night; nor of the arrows that are thrown at us by day; nor of the deadly pestilence that walks in darkness nor of the destruction that waits us at noonday. I thank you Lord that we have faith that a thousand will fall at our side, and ten thousand at our right hand and that you Lord will not let any come near us. I ask You to give Your angels charge over us to keep us in all Your ways and let Your angel’s hands lift us up, so we will not stumble or be hurt in any way. I thank you Lord that you have given us the authority to tread upon the lion and serpent and to trample them under our feet.

I claim all victory for our lives and I reject all the insinuations, accusations, and temptations of satan. I affirm that the Word of God is true and we choose to live in obedience and to always fellowship with You, Precious Jesus. I ask You, Lord to open our eyes and show us the areas of our lives that do not please You. Enable us to be aggressive in prayer and faith. Enable us to practice Your word, and to give You, Your rightful place in our lives. Heavenly Father, I place all of my cares, all of my anxieties, all of my worries and all of my concerns once and for all upon You, because I know that You love me and watch over me according to 1 Peter 5:7. In Jesus Name I pray. Amen!
