Essential Scriptures to Pray Over Yourself
Prayer #1: – Romans 4:5, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” “Lord, I claim no righteousness of my own. I’m spiritually poor, utterly dependent, a beggar. But I cling to this: You justify the ungodly. This is the basis on which I pray and do battle.”
Prayer #2: – Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” “I acknowledge my struggle is not against flesh and blood. This battle isn’t about the physical issue I’m facing. It is against rulers, against powers, against the world forces of darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. This is where I will do battle Lord, and I will do it in prayer.”
Prayer #5: – Philippians 2:9-11, “Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: (10) That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; (11) And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” “I confess the Lordship of Christ. I renounce all other gods and ungodly deeds. I bow to the headship and authority of Jesus Christ alone.”
Prayer #6: – Psalm 30:1, “I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.” “I will exalt you, Lord, for you rescued me. You refused to let my enemies triumph over me.” You are not willing to give me up to my spiritual enemies, Lord. You aren’t willing to let me go. You will fight for me and complete the victory in me.”
Prayer #7: – Psalm 138:7, “Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me.” I trust in Your great love to uphold me, Lord. My battle is not over. I walk through treacherous ground yet I will trust You to save and deliver me. You will fight for me.”
Prayer #8: Matthew 6:13, “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen. “Lord, lead me not into temptation. Deliver me from evil for Yours is the kingdom and authority and glory and I desire to live for Your kingdom, not the enemy’s.
Prayer #10: – Jude 24-25, “Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy, (25) To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.” “Lord, You are able to keep me from stumbling. You will present me blameless in Your presence. It is upon this hope I cast myself and acknowledge Your authority, power, and majesty. To You be all the glory and honor. It is for these things – for Your glory and honor – that I ask Your mighty hand to bring about victory in my life.”
“Neglect of private prayer is the locust which devours the strength of the church.”
“Each day of our lives we make deposits in the memory banks of our children.”
