Our Prayer

Lord, With My Jacob, I Would Pray

“Lord,
with my Jacob,” I would pray,
“wrestle till the break of Day”;
till he, knowing who Thou art,
tho’ asked, will not let Thee depart;
saying, “I’ll not let Thee free
saying Thou wilt first bless me;”
O God of Jacob, who knew how
to change supplanters then, so now
deal, I pray, with this my son,
though he may limp when Thou art
done.

Prayer of Deliverance

Father God, In the Name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit I take authority over any and every Spirit of deception that is effecting, influencing, confusing, controlling, manipulating, and deceiving (insert name) in any way. (Matt 12:27-43)

I break the power of effectiveness, influence, confusion, control, and manipulation. In Jesus name I command any and every spirit of deception over which we have taken authority and whose power has been broken, that they are to leave now. They are to go where Jesus tells them to go and they are not to return nor are any like kind or any masquerading as such. (Numbers 30)

I pray this in the Mighty name of Jesus!

Hosea 2:6
…behold, I will hedge up thy way with thorns,
and make a wall, that she shall not
find her paths.
