Our other booklets of prayers for spiritual protection focus on praying with someone else. They are full of ‘we pray’ sentences. This booklet is more for people who pray by themselves. The aim of this booklet is to give you the words of victory through asking for help from our Almighty God. These are words of God’s truth to undermine the plans of the enemy against your life. They are not magic incantations or a liturgy to be expressed in a mindless manner of rote. These prayers serve a number of purposes. They remind us of who we are in Christ, sons and daughters purchased at a great price. They remind us of the power we possess in partnership with Christ as the Holy Spirit fills us daily. They remind us of the often unseen battle that is going on around us. They give us words to speak first thing in the morning or last thing at night that bring truth and power as well as a focus on God. Please feel free to use your own words or even write your own prayers. The important thing is that you pray for protection daily.
What motivates you?
No matter what you read or what you hear, unless you are motivated, you will not change. Paul writing to Timothy says, “Endure hardship like a good soldier of Christ Jesus. No one serving as a soldier gets involved in civilian affairs – he wants to please his commanding officer. Similarly, if anyone competes as an athlete, he does not receive his reward unless he competes according to the rules. The hardworking farmer should be first to taste what he produces.” 2 Timothy 3 – 6
What motivates you? Are you like:
- The farmer who enjoys the promise of reward for labour. You can see the need for daily spiritual protection and know if you do it you will have the reward of a victorious Christian life.
- The soldier wanting to do what is right by the authority over him. Recognising daily that Christ has the authority over your life.
- The athlete who follows the rules so he won’t be disqualified. We so easily forget the rules of the race of life. We disqualify ourselves by sinning, not looking to Jesus and going our own way, allowing the devil a foothold.
What motivates you? Whatever it might be, may these words (compiled from many sources) bless, inspire and encourage you.
Why Spiritual Protection?
In these days of home security systems, locks and fences to keep out those who might threaten our physical well-being in any way, the home is a reasonably safe place to be. The same protection should be considered for the spiritual realm using the armour of God.
Many Christians live in the security that all was achieved at the Cross. Salvation, victory, victory over sin, right relationship to God and more can lead the Christian into a sense of false security. This list is true but we are not immune from spiritual attack. We are still human and are still vulnerable to temptation and the schemes of the enemy. We can still miss the mark set by God’s holy standard.
As Christians, often we forget that we have three adversaries in this life: the flesh, the world and the devil. While we are more than conquerors in Christ Jesus we still suffer defeat in our own strength. This is why we need to put on our spiritual armour of God daily. The armour is the application of God’s truth, God’s righteousness and God’s peace. We are to stand in faith in God. The sure knowledge of salvation in Christ will sustain and protect our mind. Constant prayer will keep us in relationship. Reading and application of the Bible will give us help and encouragement to live the life God wants us to live.
How can we survive? More to the point, how can we thrive? We don’t want to be fighting the unseen enemy all day every day. Paul points out that our battle isn’t against visible adversaries (people) but evil dark powers, principalities and authorities of the unseen world. Eph 6:10ff
If we perceive a physical threat of any kind the reaction may be courageous, self-sacrificing and decisive. We may choose to stand and fight or run or hide. We may choose to examine the resources at hand then make a decision regarding the action that needs to take place. This same type of action and reaction should be enlisted when spiritual danger threatens us.
There is a need to continue to fight and defend while we are in this world. While we live in the victory that has been won through Christ, we are not there yet! The three adversaries are working against us and as soon as we think we have it together … WHAM! Look at your own and others experience.
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for the pulling down of strongholds in our minds. 2 Cor 10:4 But the weapons of Satan are carnal, mighty in our flesh for the erecting of strongholds in our minds – and we’re the ones arming him by our choices. Jesus “disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them.” Col 2:15
Some people have yet to see the need for spiritual warfare in their Christian life and point out that Scripture says we don’t have to battle because the devil is already defeated. It is true, Satan has been defeated, but we still need to “fight the good fight of faith” 1 Tim 6:12 and “wrestle against principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness” Eph 6:12. The devil has no authority over us unless it is given to him by us. The serpent had no authority in the garden until Adam gave it to him.
We need to use the sword of the Spirit. Heb 4:12. The Word of God is powerful but we need to speak it out and use the living power it contains. When we speak out God’s Word, it casts out death and opens the door to life.
Satan’s weapons work through our carnal nature to oppress us by tempting us to speak words that are out of alignment with God’s truth. We are to speak life to foil the enemy’s plans as soon as we see the need or circumstances that are being used by the enemy. We should not, as the Bible says, be “double-minded” therefore unstable in all our ways. James 1:8 If you are feeling unstable it may be because you are not speaking words of faith and life. You may be arming the enemy with words of fear, doubt, unbelief and death.
The words you choose to use are weapons in spiritual warfare. When you speak God’s Word, you are using them like a sword to thwart Satan’s schemes. It may take perseverance to speak (cut) many times to see results. If you speak words of fear, permission is given to oppress and gain a stronghold. If you speak God’s truth through the Word you give God permission to bring life. We need to be choosing constantly whether to give life to God’s plan or to the enemy’s plan.
How it May Work for You
I tend to go to the dentist about once every 20 years. These few times that I have been I haven’t needed any intervention. While I believe being given fluoride tablets when we were children has helped, I’ve always regularly brushed my teeth twice a day. Despite being a ‘sweet tooth’ my teeth have remained healthy due to this daily maintenance.
We all know that brushing our teeth is good. Some are more regular than others doing this. If we don’t practice this each day, tooth decay will most likely set in eventually. This will then require some form of intervention to stop infection affecting the whole body.
These prayers are like a spiritual tooth clean. (They stop truth decay!!) They work best prayed daily, consistently and faithfully. To only clean your teeth when you feel like it won’t be effective in halting the damage that can subtly weaken the outer coating of the tooth. Too often, Christians ignore this daily protection. When the crisis hits, the call for urgent prayer goes out, needing intense intervention rather than just a daily action. Are these prayers helpful? Our testimony and many others around the world testify to these prayers being a helpful way to focus our day on God’s protection. They also serve to remind us daily of our position ‘in Christ’ as well as focus us on Him.
These prayers are not magic words. They are a daily discipline. The more I don’t want to read them, the more I persist. The thoughts: ‘are they making any difference in our lives’ or ‘God will cover us anyway,’ are constant. It’s all about doing it because I want to be my best for Him. When the devil’s attacks arrive, as they will, I want to be a clean vessel so that he doesn’t have a foothold in my life. Then I won’t have to go through a spiritual crisis to wake me up to the need for protection time after time. I want my spiritual protection maintained so I press on daily, believing in the One I’m praying to for His glory in my life.
Prayer to Put on the Armour of God

As I pray, I ask for Your help to put off the things that belong to my sin nature: all forms of impurity, lust, evil desires, greed, lying, anger, stealing and unwholesome talk. Help me to put on that which belongs to my heavenly nature: meaningful activity, increasing generosity, thoughtful and active encouragement, loving kindness, deep compassion, loving forgiveness, growing obedience, genuine humility, gentleness and enduring patience.

(Home, family, property, cars, possessions, finances and business dealings). I ask that You clothe me in protective armour for the battles I face today. I believe with Your help that any dishonest attack on me won’t be successful and hurtful words spoken against me won’t harm me at all.

Show me through Your wisdom the best ways to have the victory over them. Please help me to live life to the fullest according to Your intention unhindered by the schemes of the enemy.
Please recharge me with the Holy Spirit today. I ask for new Scriptures to come alive to me and that I might be refreshed by them today. Please help me to put into action the things that I know already and the things You remind me of from the Scriptures. I pray that You would extend my influence and increase my ministry for the extension of Your Kingdom and the glory of Your Name, Amen.
Father, my heart overflows with thanks to You for all the blessings and good gifts You give me. For people who share their love with me. For a future filled with hope. For peace of mind which goes beyond all understanding. I thank You for a place to live and for all my needs being met; for food, clothing and finances. Thank You for every good gift.
I pray for a day of refreshment today that You might revitalise me with the Holy Spirit to equip me for the works You have prepared for me to do this week. Please tell me what I should be doing in accordance with Your will this week. Father, today help me as I commit my life to You totally, spirit, soul and body.

To God be the glory, Amen.
Lord God, as I begin this week I praise and honour You. Thank You that You are all loving and totally just. I confess I need You and ask that You fill me afresh with the Holy Spirit. I am reminded and acknowledge that Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. Help me conduct myself in ways that show Him as truth in my life.
Father, I ask that You help me to stop my inherent evil and sinful desires having a stronghold in my conduct and attitudes.

Help me to walk by faith and not by what I see around me.
I ask that You renew my mind today. In the name of Jesus I bind all the forces of evil affecting my mind (You might want to mention specific issues like fear, oppression and condemnation). I pray for a sound mind and ask for Your discernment, wisdom, knowledge, understanding and holiness to fill my mind. Lord, help me to guard my tongue, so I speak what is honouring. I recognise that my dignity and self-esteem comes from You. Help me to remember and apply Your precious Scriptures to my life today.
I ask for Your protection from pain, infection, inflammation, malignancies, allergies, viruses, injury and re-injury. Help me to remember that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, sanctified by the blood of Jesus Christ; therefore the devil has no place in my life and no power over me. Help me with my conduct and attitudes today so that I can truly love and serve the people I come into contact with. In Jesus name, Amen.
Lord God, I thank You that I am Your child and co-heir of the Kingdom, Your servant and friend. Thank You that You hear my prayers and that there is no weapon formed against me that will prosper and every tongue that rises against me in wrong or false judgement shall be shown to be wrong. (Is 54:17) You, Lord God are my banner and shield of protection and my position is to praise, thank and glorify You.
I thank You that I live in the blessings of the New Covenant. I am reminded that these blessings are God’s favour, exaltation, health, reproductiveness, prosperity (Matt 7:7) and victory.
Please forgive me for my active sin choices where I have chosen worldly-mindedness, pride, envy, a critical spirit, slander, lack of seriousness, lying, cheating, robbing God, bad temper and hindering others from being useful.
Please help me to put off what belongs to the earthly nature: impurity, lust, evil desires, greed, falsehood, anger, stealing and unwholesome talk.

To all those who would desire harm to come upon me, I ask Your forgiveness and return the curse with a blessing in Jesus Christ’s name.
In making a fresh conscious decision to accept Your wonderful free gift of salvation, Lord, I need Your help and protection for my mind. I bind all spirits that would try to destroy my mind. I thank You for Your Word tells me who You are and who I am in You. Holy Spirit please remind me of the truth in Your Word throughout this day.
Help me to be light and salt to those who don’t know You. I pray for Your divine appointments and the wisdom and courage to do Your will. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
This morning I acknowledge that you Lord Jesus are the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, the Son of God, the Messiah. Help me to remember this truth today. Please protect me from errors, lies and deceptions. Thank You that Your truth sets me free and help me live in this special freedom today. Help me to live in victory as I enter into Your peace that passes all understanding. Protect me from all forms of slackness that go against Your good and perfect will for me today.
Help me live in Your righteousness today and protect my heart and mind from displeasing You in attitude and actions.

Please protect me from evil and sinful desires and to stand fast against the wiles of the devil and my own sinful nature during this day.
Please Lord, help me to guard my sensitivity, emotionally (what I feel), mentally (what I think) and spiritually (my communion with you). In Your name please cut off from me all unhelpful sensitivity, all shame, wounding of a wounded spirit and bruising from verbal abuse. In Your name I bind all spirits that would try to destroy my mind. Please protect and renew my mind. I ask that my mind be filled with Your clear sound mind full of peace and love. I pray for the gifts of discernment, wisdom, knowledge and understanding.
Please Lord Jesus, guard what I speak, that I would only speak what is helpful. Help me to give You praise and honour wherever I am today. I ask for freedom to speak Your Words of love, peace and hope today.

Please Lord, extend my tent and increase my love and service to You for the extension of Your Kingdom and the glory of Your Name. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Lord, I thank You that You are as close as the air I breath and I stand in faith on You, the Solid Rock. Your joy is my strength. I recognise that You need to be my foundation. I must not be moved by the roar of the enemy, nor by negative circumstances. Help me to stand valiant and strong. With You by my side, who can triumph against me? I bless Your holy name and desire to serve You in obedience. Thank You for the victory that You have won. I am more than a conqueror in Christ Jesus.
Please Lord, forgive me for all my sins and help me to live a life of obedience. I confess my dependence on You today. Help me to die to myself and be alive to Your purposes. Please fill me with the Holy Spirit now. Holy Spirit please guide, lead and equip me for today so that I can walk in humility and victory under Your guidance. Help me to be sensitive to Your leading at all times. I stand fast in Your strength against the trials and tribulations of this life.
Help me put to death sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires, greed, falsehood, anger, stealing, and unwholesome talk: all that belongs to the earthly nature. Please clothe me afresh with truth, meaningful activity, generosity, encouragement, kindness, compassion, forgiveness, obedience, humility, gentleness and patience. Help me to grow in faith and victory as I walk by faith and not by what I see around me. Help me to bring every thought and imagination into the obedience of the Lord Jesus Christ.
In Jesus’ name, please deliver me from all evil intent against me and my home from any source of opposition or oppression. Help me to have the victory in Jesus’ name, setting me and my loved ones free from all generational bondage and wrong soul ties.
I cover myself , family, property, cars and material assets with the blood (Rev 12:11) of the Lord Jesus Christ and ask You Heavenly Father to place a hedge of protection (Job 1:10) and Your angels of protection (Ps 34:7) around us all. Amen.
As I come before You this morning, Lord, I acknowledge Your power and intervention in my life. Thank You, that You are present with me through Your precious Holy Spirit. Help me to live in Your ways, Your truth and with the life You have purchased for me on the cross.
I pray for the covering of the blood of Jesus over the physical, spiritual, emotional, soul and will areas of my life. I pray that they would be under the Lordship of Christ at all times. Please protect me from errors, lies and deceptions. Thank You that Your truth sets me free.
Please help me to stand fast against the schemes of the devil at all times in my life. Place on me Your powerful armour and help me to walk in Your grace and to rest in Your peace at all times. To those who would wish harm upon me I ask forgiveness and blessing in Jesus’ Christ name. Please Lord, protect my heart from all unrighteousness, shame, guilt, fear, doubt, anger, bitterness, all rebellion, pride, rejection, self-righteousness and judgementalism.
I pray for the areas You have given me responsibility for in the home, workplace and areas of Christian service. Please protect and guide my efforts so these may bring glory to You. Please provide all I need to accomplish my God-given tasks, including financial resources and people support, so I can do the work unhindered. Protect my fruitfulness in serving You.
Please Lord, help me to be light and salt that I might bring Your presence wherever I place my feet. Help me with my conduct and attitudes so that I love people with love like Your unfailing love today. I pray for Your divine appointments and the wisdom and courage to do Your will. Please Lord, extend my tent this day for the extension of Your Kingdom and the glory of Your Name, Amen.
Lord God, I thank You that Your mercies are new this morning. Thank You for this new day. I praise, honour and worship You, my God. You are Lord, King of the Universe, able to do all things, all loving, totally just, the King of Glory. Thank You Father God, for sending the Lord Jesus Christ to save me and the Holy Spirit to help me. I thank You that I am Your child and co-heir of the Kingdom, Your servant and friend. Thank You for the glorious gift of salvation.
Lord Jesus please renew my mind today. I ask that my mind be filled with a clear sound mind (2 Tim 1:7), the mind of Christ of joy, peace and love. I pray for the gifts of discernment, wisdom, knowledge and understanding (Eph1:17). In Jesus’ name I bind all forces that would seek to destroy my mind and rob me of my peace and joy.
Guard my rest and recreation, helping me maintain wisdom and balance in my daily rhythm and activities. Please help me maintain my health and develop wise habits regarding diet and exercise.
I thank You, Lord, for Your powerful Word. Please help me to remember and apply Your precious Scriptures throughout this day. I now cut off from myself, by the Power of Your Word, all demonic spirits and their activities from my life in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Please protect my home and loved ones. May You grow them all to love, follow and serve You. I pray for the covering of the blood of Jesus over all areas of my life.
Lord Jesus I thank You that You hear my prayers. Help me to be a shining light. I pray for Your divine appointments. Please Lord Jesus, extend my tent this day for the extension of Your Kingdom and the glory of Your Name, Amen.
The Prayer To Our Father (translated from first century Aramaic)
Oh Thou, from whom the breath of life comes,
who fills all realms of sound, light and vibration.
May Your light be experienced in my utmost holiest.
Your Heavenly domain approaches.
Let Your will come true – in the universe (all that vibrates)
just as on earth (that is material and dense).
Give us wisdom (understanding, assistance) for our daily need, detach the fetters of faults that bind us, like we let go the guilt of others.
Let us not be lost in superficial things (materialism, common temptations), but let us be freed from what keeps us from our true purpose.
From You comes the all-working will, the lively strength to act,
the song that beautifies all and renews itself from age to age.
Sealed in trust, faith and truth.
AMEN (I confirm with my entire being)
Lord’s Prayer (Contemporary version of original Aramaic)
O Lord God who fills the whole Cosmos,
You who are as close as the very air we breathe, focus your light within us and help us to shine it out to others.
Reign in us so we become one in unity with You,
Set our hearts on fire and commission our willing hands to do Your works.
Help us love beyond our own natural ability,
to live with deep compassion towards all people.
Breathe the Holy Spirit into us, then we will feel the support of Your wisdom underneath us.
Untangle the knots within us so that our hearts can reach out to others, Save us from the evil one and our own sinful self.
Don’t let surface things delude us,
But free us from what holds us back from our true purpose.
Out of You, Lord God comes the fire of the most extravagant love,
This gives light and sound to all of the cosmos.
