Prayer for an Inmate's Protection and Future

Father, I pray that I may become useful and helpful and kind to those around me, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving others [readily and freely], as You, Father, in Christ forgave me my sins.

It is my desire to be an imitator of You, Lord.  With the/* Holy Spirit as my Helper, I will [copy You and follow Your example], as well-beloved child [imitated his/her father].  I purpose to walk in love [esteeming and delighting in others], as Christ loves me.  As I attend to Your Word, I depend on Your Holy Spirit to teach me to live a life of victory in Christ Jesus my Lord.

In the name of Jesus, I am Your child, I am dwelling in the secret place of the Most High and abiding under the shadow of the Almighty.  I say of You, Lord, that You are my Refuge and Fortress: my God; in You will I trust.  You cover me with Your feathers, and under Your wings shall I trust:  Your truth is my shield and buckler.

Because You are my Lord, my Refuge and Habitation, no evil shall befall me - no accident will overtake me - neither shall any plague or calamity come near me.  You give Your angels [special] charge over me, to keep me in all of my ways [of obedience and service].

Thank you for hearing my prayer.  You are with me in trouble; You deliver me and satisfy me with long life and show me Your salvation.   In Jesus' name, amen.

In Court Cases

Father, in the name of Jesus, it is written in Your Word to call on You and You will answer me and show me great and mighty things.  I put You in remembrance of Your Word and thank You that You watch over it to perform it.

I say that no weapons formed against me shall prosper, and any tongue that rises against me in judgment I shall show to be in the wrong.  This peace, security, and triumph over opposition is my inheritance as Your child.  This is the righteousness I obtain from You, Father, which You impart to me as my justification.  I am far form even the thought of destruction; for I shall not fear, and terror shall not come near me.

Father, You say You will establish me to the end - keep me steadfast, give me strength, and guarantee my vindication.  Father, You control with those who contend with me, and You perfect that concerns me.  I dwell in the secret place of the Most High, and this secret places hides me from the strife of tongues, for a false witness who breathes out lies is an abomination to You.

I am true witness, and all my words are upright and in right standing with You, Father.  By my long forbearing and calmness of spirit the judge is persuaded, and my soft speech breaks down the most bone-like resistance.  Therefore, I am not anxious beforehand how I shall reply in defense or what I and to say, for the Holy Spirit teaches me in that very hour and moment what I ought to say tot hose in the outside world.  My speech is seasoned with salt.

As a child of the light, I enforce the triumphant victory of my Lord Jesus Christ in this situation, knowing that all of heaven is backing me.  I am strong in You, Lord, and in the power of Your might.  Thank You for the shield of faith that quenches every fiery dart of the enemy.  I am increasing in wisdom and in stature and in years, and in favor with You, Father, and with man.  Praise the Lord!  Amen.

Divine  Protection Daily

Dear Heavenly Father,

I pray this prayer in the power of the Holy Spirit. In the name of Jesus Christ I bind, rebuke and bring to no effect all division, discord, disunity, strife, anger, wrath, murder, criticism, condemnation, pride, envy, jealousy, gossip, slander, evil speaking, complaining, lying, false teaching, false gifts, false manifestations, lying signs and wonders, poverty, fear of lack, fear spirit, murmuring spirit, complaining spirits, hindering spirits, retaliatory spirits, deceiving spirits, religious spirits, occult spirits, witchcraft spirits, and spirits of Antichrist.

I bind all curses that have been spoken against me. I bless those who curse me, and pray blessings on those who despitefully use me. I bind all spoken judgments made against me and judgments I have made against others. I bind the power of negative words from others, and I bind and render useless all prayers not inspired by the Holy Spirit; whether psychic, soul force, witchcraft or counterfeit tongues that have been prayed against me.

I am God's child. I resist the evil one. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. I put on the whole armor of God. I take authority over this day, in Jesus' name. Let it be prosperous for me, let me walk in Your love, Lord.

The Holy Spirit leads and guides me today. I discern between the righteous and the wicked. I take authority over Satan and all his demons and those people who are influenced by them. I declare Satan is under my feet and shall remain there all-day and everyday. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus.

I am God's property, Satan, you are bound from my family, my mind, my body, my home, and my finances. I confess that I am healed and whole. I flourish, am long lived, stable, durable, incorruptible, fruitful, virtuous, full of peace, patience and love. Whatsoever I set my hands to do shall prosper for God supplies all my need. I have all authority over Satan, all demons, and beasts of the fields.

Lord, I pray that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your Hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain.

God, I pray for the ministry you have for me. Anoint me God, for all You have called me to do for You. I call forth-divine appointments, open doors of opportunity, God ordained encounters and ministry positions.

I claim a hedge of protection around myself, spouse, (name children individually and grandchildren) throughout this day and night. I ask you God, in the name of Jesus, to dispatch angels to surround my spouse, our children and me today and to put them throughout my house and around all our cars, souls and bodies. I ask angels to protect my household from any intrusion and to protect me and my family from any harmful demonic or other physical or mental attacks. I ask this prayer in the name of Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of Lords. Amen.

A Prayer For Marriage

Father, in Jesus name, I pray for my husband/wife. I thank You that ___________ is filled with the love of God and that he/she walks worthy of You in all things.

This day _________ will be blessed in every situation and circumstance that comes his/her way.  I pray that _______is strengthened and reinforced in every area of life, spiritually, emotionally and physically.

Thank you, Father, that our union is off limits to Satan. We stand against any maneuver that he might be using against us.  In the power of Jesus' name,  Satan has been placed under our feet.

In the name of Jesus, our marriage is a blessed union, joined in the spirit with Your eternal love.  The love we share together as husband and wife

is a special experience.   The bond of unity that makes the two of us one

grows stronger and stronger each passing day.

I pray that our marriage may serve as an example to other Christians--and believers, too--of the way God intends for marriage relationships to be in this life. What God has joined together, let no man put asunder!

Prayer For The Home

Father, in Jesus' name, I come into Your presence now to thank You for all that You are doing in behalf of my family.

As Your child, I stand before You to receive the provisions You have made for us through the shed blood of  Jesus Christ.   He washed us clean from sin, sickness, and all that Satan would bring.   Thank you, Father!

Your Word says that through wisdom this house is built and through understanding it is established.

By knowledge the chambers are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.  Wealth and riches shall be in this house, and our righteousness endures forever.

I thank you, Father, that no evil shall befall us, neither shall any plague come nigh this dwelling. The wicked are overthrown and are not, but this house shall stand.

This house is blessed with Your life, Your joy and Your peace.  The peace of God reigns in  each of our lives.   With open hearts, we receive Your perfect will for us.   Each day we look to You as the Light that shows us the way through every situation and circumstance that arises.

With boldness, I proclaim this day; "For me and my house, we shall serve the Lord."

Prayer For Your Child

Lord I confess that I have made some serious mistakes concerning my children. I ask Your forgiveness and their forgiveness today. Here is my new prayer for my children, in Jesus’ name.

Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before You now in behalf of my child,.  Your Word says that children are the heritage of the Lord and that the fruit of the womb is His reward.  I accept             (name)           as a special gift from You, Father, and thank You for giving him/her to me.

 According to Your Word, as I train up my child in the way he/she should go, when he/she is old, he/she will not depart from it.  I accept the promise now by faith.  As I teach      (name)         ,  and  bring him/her up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord., I believe he/she will grow up to be a godly man.

 Because     (name)      is taught of the Lord, great shall be his/her peace.

 I thank you , Father, for Your  guidance in disciplining      (name)           .  As I correct him/her in love and admonish him/her according to Your Word, I  pray that he/she will grow in wisdom, in stature, and in favor with You and with men.

 I pray that You give Your angels charge over    (name)    each day to accompany him/her and keep him/her safe from any maneuver of the Devil.  Your Word says that the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.

 Because I have chosen to serve You, Lord, I can confidently proclaim

My seed shall be great and mighty upon the earth! Amen.


Father, in the name of Jesus, I come before you willingly, and ask for deliverance from the spirits of lust that have been haunting me.    As Your word says, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthen me.”

Lord, I lift up all my struggles and challenges in dealing with the sprits of lust this day, which I have been entertaining for much too long.   I give them all to you knowing, at the same time, that they shall no longer have control over me, in the name of Jesus.

In the name of Jesus, I claim my victory over every spirit of lust that comes my way and put them all under my feet this day.  In the name of Jesus, I bind the spirits of lust, fornication, pornography, masturbation and every other spirit of lust named or unnamed and loose all you demonic spirits from your assignment of any further attacks on me, my family, loved ones, prayer partners, anyone in my prayer circle and anyone I come in contact with through fellowship.

The spirits of lust no longer have control over me from this day forward, in the name of Jesus. I take authority over Satan. I cast every lustful thought out of my head immediately, in the name of Jesus, and I commit to You, dear Lord, to living my life for you, realizing that my body is a temple which will be respected as much as I respect you. All these things I ask, in Jesus, I pray.  Amen!
