Praying Scripture in Spiritual Warfare

Here are some examples of using God’s Word to fight and win.
Read the scripture from the Bible and then turn the scripture into a prayer.

Feeling Afraid or Confused
2 Timothy 1:7 God, you have not given me a spirit of fear, but the Holy Spirit resulting in power, love and a sound mind.
Psalm 4:8 Because of you, Lord, I can sleep in peace and dwell in safety.
John 4:4 God, You are my Father and I am your child. Greater is your Holy Spirit in me than the devils of this world.

Feeling Guilty and Worthless after Confessing Sin
Colossians 2:13-15 Thank you, Lord, for forgiving me. The blood of your cross has wiped the record clean. The curses can no longer cling to me. Your glory triumphs over spells and witchcraft.
Isaiah 54:17 My righteousness is a gift from you, Lord. No attack from the enemy will prosper. My inheritance is that You, Lord, will defend me and claim me as your own.

Spiritual Attacks – Respond, counter attack and walk in victory.
Jude 1:9 The Lord rebuke you. May God be glorified. May Satan get no glory here. (We don’t have to get dramatic.)
James 4:7-9 Satan, I reject you and all your evil ways. Jesus, I draw near to You.
Ephesians 6:15 Oh Lord, wherever I go, may I bring peace and declare your peace. That the God’s wisdom and God’s design will permeate my surroundings. (Peace is defined as things flowing as they should.) That love will flow between parents and children. That people would pursue God’s righteousness instead of rebellion. That truth will be taught about life, relationships and finances. That our hearts passions would be for God and His glory … and not for idols, destruction and lust.

Witnessing in Enemy Territory
Proverbs 14:27-28 My God and King, I want to bring glory to you by bringing people into Your Kingdom. Lord, may there be many generations in this place that serve and bring glory to you. Help us for your glory and bless the work of our hands. Lord, help us to teach them to fear you as the Fountain of Life, that saves them from the snares of death.
Jude 1:20-23 Oh Lord, help us hate the sin, but love the sinner. Help us rescue them from the fire of hell. Satan may have tattooed his name all over their body, but You, Lord, still want to write your name on their heart.
Ephesians 1:17-23 Oh Lord, we are your inheritance that you cherish. Lord help us to be a bright light that helps them understand that You love and want them. Lord give us wisdom and power to be effective in the work You have called us to do. Lord, we want to build up Your church and fill this land. Please shine Your light into their minds so they can understand how great and glorious You are.

Pray and Preach referencing God’s Word.
(What is an angel’s sword? Doesn’t God have new technology like bombs, bullets and lasers? Why are angels still using swords today and in the future? An angel’s sword is the Word that God has spoken about a situation.)
Genesis 3:24 God declared no one could eat of the tree of life.
Jude 1:9 God declared Satan could not take the body of Moses.
Zechariah 1:4-5 We do not need walls to protect us, when God declares protection.
Ephesians 6:17 The Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit that we are to proclaim.
Revelation 19:15 Jesus judges the nations with the sword of His mouth.
John 3:18-21 Jesus didn’t come to condemn the world, because they were already condemned by the sword of His Word in Exodus and Deuteronomy. Jesus came to earth so that we could declare the Sword of forgiveness and life through the blood of Jesus Christ. The Word of God sets the captives free.

Have fun in the joy of the Lord!
