Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
Lord! Deliver me, God! For you promised to fight all my battles and deliver from the hands of those who seek to destroy me. Deliverance belongs to the Lord; thy blessing be upon thy people! Though I walk in the midst of dangers, you guard my life when my enemies rage. You stretch out your hand; your right hand saves me. The Lord is with me to the end. Lord, your mercy endures forever. Never forsake the work of your hands! The Lord will rescue me from every evil and save me for his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory for ever and ever. Amen.
O Lord, my rock, my fortress, my deliverer, my God, my rock of refuge! My shield, my saving horn, my stronghold, my refuge, my savior, from violence you keep me safe. Praised be the Lord, I exclaim! I have been delivered from my enemies. The breakers of death surged round about me, the menacing floods terrified me; The cords of Sheol tightened; the snares of death lay in wait for me. In my distress I called out: Lord! I cried out to my God; From his temple he heard my voice, my cry reached his ears.
Heavenly Father I pray for Your strength and courage – I pray that I would be strong in the day of battle. I pray that You would give me the strength and courage that only comes from You and You alone.
I pray that like Joshua I would be strong and very courageous and not be afraid to face the enemies of my soul, nor be dismayed by the spiritual armies that encompass me round about. I pray that You would break any stronghold of fear or doubt, shame or unbelief that weakens my walk and witness and that makes me so vulnerable to the wiles of Satan.
Help me I pray to resist the devil and to take every thought, that starts to drag me down, captive.. and to hand it to You – for You have not given us the spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, self-discipline and a sound mind.
Lord I am aware that there are many forms of opposition – many strongholds that can keep our souls enslaved and captive and which prevent us from being strong in the Lord and in His mighty power in this evil day – but I pray that by Your grace and in the power of the Holy Spirit I would be strong in the day of battle and abide in Christ, Who is my Shield and Buckler, My defense and my Defender – and in Whose name I pray, Amen
