It is designed to help you live a victorious life in Christ. I transcribed an audio file of this prayer (found online), then edited it and added Scriptures as the days went by, according to my specific needs. I have left plenty of blank space on the pages for you to do the same. This is a covenant prayer; it is meant as a statement of faith to the Lord, as well as a petition. If you read this aloud daily, you will be delightfully surprised at how it shows up in your daily thoughts, and even starts to come out of your mouth at times! Also, I initially thought this prayer would lose meaning and become a rote recitation; that concern was without merit. Every time I read it, it never fails that some part of it ministers to me or brings me joy. I think it is because the prayer is Scripture-based. I also have added so many Scriptures to it, just for my edification, that these are now being "hidden in my heart." I hope this prayer blesses you as it has blessed me, and more!
8:26 I thank You for this moment, and the opportunity that this day brings. I know that each day is a gift from You, and I have unlimited potential to impact Your kingdom today.

THE ADVERSARY Help me to never lose sight of the fact that I have an adversary that must be fought each day. My adversary is Satan, who is the prince of this present darkness. The world I can see with my eyes is not my home; it is a reflection of Satan, its prince. You have made me wise to Satan's devices, and I understand that worldly thinking, values, and compromises are designed for my destruction. The allurement of pleasure and the temptations that cross my eyes are for the purpose of robbing me of everything You intend for me to enjoy. In the Name of Jesus and the power of his blood, I bind every evil spirit that seeks to draw me away from You, for these seek to open the portals to hell on earth, and rob me of my rewards in Heaven. In the name of Jesus, I avoid every snare and trap, deny every lust, and kill the pride of life that seeks to thwart my relationship with You. I will not hand over my authority to the devil. I will not be deceived by what I see, hear, or how I feel. I know that if something is not of God, then it is for my
destruction. LORD, help me to see the spirit behind each temptation. The Word tells me that Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy. But Jesus comes that I might have life, and have it more abundantly. ARMOR OF GOD In the Name of Jesus and the power of his blood, I equip myself right now with the whole armor of God, that I am covered from head to toe in every aspect of my life. There are no parts of my life that are exposed, but my body, soul, and spirit are covered by the blood of Jesus.

This helmet will protect me from the deception of my enemy. My thoughts are sealed by the blood of Jesus, and no lie can live in my mind. BELT OF TRUTH In the Name of Jesus and the power of his blood, I put on the belt of truth. Thank You, my LORD, for showing me the truth about Yourself. Thank You for reminding me that You are the only God, the Creator of heaven and earth, the King of the universe, my Father who loves me, and my Shepherd who leads me. You are my wisdom, my counselor, my hope, and my strength. You are everything I need each day. I am Yours. I am Your chosen, adopted, dearly loved child. Nothing can separate me from Your love! Romans 8:38-39
RIGHTEOUSNESS In the Name of Jesus and the power of his blood, I put on the breastplate of righteousness. I thank You, LORD, for showing me the truth that on my own I could never be good enough to live in Your presence. Jesus, thank You for taking my sins on the cross and for giving me Your righteousness in the great exchange. Your righteousness protects my heart from pride. My own good works are like dirty rags to You, so I need not worry about being good enough or doing enough. SHIELD OF FAITH In the Name of Jesus and the power of his blood, I take up the Shield of Faith, and I bind the spirit of fear. You have not given me the spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. I trust in the LORD with all of my heart, mind, body, soul, and spirit. If You said it, then I know that You will do it. You do only good things to me, and You are able to perform Your Word in my life. I believe the promises of God for my life. Every Word You have spoken concerning my destiny shall be established and come to pass; no man or devil can usurp Your will for my life! SANDALS OF PEACE In the Name of Jesus and the power of his blood, my feet are shod with the gospel of peace. Peace rests upon me and covers my mind and heart. I will share the good news about Jesus with anyone You bring me. Because of Jesus and what he has done for me, I have peace in the midst of storms, chaos, and confusion. Your peace comforts me in times of trial, and sustains me from being weary. It surpasses all understanding and defies logic.
SWORD OF THE SPIRIT In the Name of Jesus and the power of his blood, I am empowered with the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. The Sword of the LORD shall never depart from me. I pray for holy boldness in my spirit, and for Your Holy Spirit to bring to my mind the Word of God when I need it to comfort, encourage, exhort, or wage war with my enemy.
world is standing against me. I am willing to abstain when others are eager to participate, to speak out when my Words may cause me to be ostracized, and believe the Bible, even though it isn't a popular thing to do. In other Words, I am prepared to live like Jesus. The Word of God will comfort me, build up my spirit man, and encourage me in the Way.
MY HOPE AND PLEDGE "I will walk in my house with a blameless heart." Psalm 101:2b The hope that I have is in patiently walking in obedience to Your Word, and staying firm to the covenant I have made with You. Father, I know You are able to do all things, and there is nothing that is impossible for You. Give me an ear, LORD, to hear what the Spirit says, eyes that will not be deceived, and a heart that will remain faithful. I am prepared today to exercise faith in the light of circumstances, sacrifice my own wants and desires in order to embrace Yours, stand on the Word of God, even if causes me to be peculiar, deny my flesh, and ignore my feelings regardless of the situation. I will not make decisions based on what I see, think, or feel. I will forget about the past and press towards the mark. I will walk as a prophet of God, hold my head up, and if nobody is there to encourage me, I will encourage myself. I will not be ashamed to follow the examples of Christ, even in the face of persecution, to think differently despite the negative labels and slander I may endure. Nor will I be afraid to take a stand in the minority, even if it seems as if the whole

I will not fall prey to addiction of any kind. I recognize that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and I do good to it and do not harm it all the days of my life.
