“Because the Sovereign Lord helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, have I set my face like flint, and I know I will not be put to shame.” (Isaiah 50:7 NIV)
This Prayer is taken from the Devotional Book: 21 Destiny Prayers- Day 9
Heavenly Father, those who trust in you will never be put to shame. I pray for your shield and protective armor against all worry, anxiety, doubts, and fear. I ask for the power to stand against all the wiles, schemes, and devices of the devil and to take captive every thought to the obedience of Christ (Ephesians 6:10-17). I put on the whole armor of God daily, and I rest under the shadow of your wings. I look up to you in my time of distress, and I lift up my eyes to you, for from you alone will my help come.
I shield my mind against all lies, negative words, and thoughts of familiar spirits that would want to pollute my mind with fear, doubt, unbelief, and anxiety. I say today, and every day that fear has no place in my life, anxiety has no power over me, doubt has to flee, and worry has to go.
Instead of worrying, help me use the time to pray. Worry is allowing the enemy to control my mind and thoughts, instead of fixing my gaze and attention on you, the All-Powerful God who made heaven and earth. It is an insult to you, Father, for me to elevate worry when you have already said, “to be of good cheer because you have overcome the world” (John 16:33).
You are bigger and greater than any situation or challenge that may come my way. Who can stand against your power?
I repent for any time that I have elevated the problem instead of spending time in thanksgiving and worship to you for fighting my battles of the past, the present, and the future. Help me to guard my heart against every lie and deceit of the enemy. Remove the veil from my eyes and sanctify my mind from every thought of doom and gloom. Help me not to focus on what I desire and do not have, but to focus my energy on positive thinking and steadfast faith in you. The battle against the mind can only be fought with the confession of your word, along with applying the blood of Jesus and the power in His name.
Your word says that you have not given us the spirit of fear but of power, love, and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7). I receive your power, love, and a sound mind. I choose to walk in faith and to trust you anytime doubts, and anxiety wants to creep in on me. I speak and declare courage and boldness over my life, for those who trust in you shall be like Mount Zion, which cannot be moved but abides forever (Psalm 125:1).
I sever myself from every soul tie to the burden of fear and worry in any area of my life, and I cut every bondage to these negative spirits and energy from the root source, in the name of Jesus. Fear is not of God because perfect love casts out all fear. Heavenly Father, fill me with your perfect love and peace that passes all understanding.
Lord, I ask that you cut off every tree that you have not planted in my life, from the root. I cover all gateways, doorways, doorposts, and lintels of my mind with the blood of Jesus. The angel of death passed over the house of the children of Israel because you shielded them with the blood of the lamb. How much more powerful is the blood of Jesus, the lamb of God, I declare that my mind is shielded and protected from every arrow of familiar spirits, sent to contaminate and torment my mind and thoughts with negative and toxic thoughts in Jesus’ name. I hold on to your faithfulness and trust in you, for you are a God that keeps your covenant with your children. Help me to always think of things that are true, just, lovely, pure, and of good report (Philippians 4:8). Whenever I feel fearful or worried, help me to remember that you are bigger than any situation that I may be facing. I pray Lord that by your power, I will stand strong in the face of adversity and confess your word of victory, that when I pass through the rivers you will be with me, and when I go through the fire I will not be scorched, and the flame will not burn me (Isaiah 43:2). I pray that you will help me not to take my eyes off you, but to always fix my gaze upon you with determination and unwavering faith. I know those who trust in you will not be put to shame (Romans 10:11).
