The Lordship of Jesus
A PRAYER FOR PRODIGALS
Father, I need your help in praying for my prodigal son/daughter. My heart is broken for my son/daughter and the choices he/she has made to walk away from you. God, my heart has become a battlefield for the enemy and I struggle with fear, doubts, guilt, feelings of failure, disappointments and even anger towards my son/daughter. I feel at times like giving up on praying because I am weary. But now, I am bringing this situation UNDER YOUR LORDSHIP!
Lord, where my son/daughter has opened the door to darkness because of sin please convict them of their need to confess, repent and turn to you. Invade their hearts and minds with your love that casts out all fear. Guard their hearts and minds from a spirit of condemnation and flood them with the truth of the Gospel. Remind them that Jesus paid the price for their sin and if they confess their sins to you that you will freely forgive them and cleanse them from all unrighteousness. Lord Jesus show that your freedom, your beauty, your life-giving spirit. In your powerful name I pray, AMEN.
PRAYER RENOUNCING A SPIRITUAL STRONGHOLD
Adopted from Dr. Mark Bubeck of Moody Bible Institute
"Dear Heavenly Father. I praise you that I am united with the Lord Jesus Christ in all of his life and work. I affirm that I belong fully to Jesus Christ and I am seated with Christ in the heavenly realms, far above all principalities and supernatural powers of darkness. I now ask you, Holy Spirit, to search through all my conscious, unconscious and subconscious thoughts for any control of wicked spirits and lies. Evict them now to where the Lord Jesus Christ is commanding them to go. Sweep my thinking totally clean from evil powers, demons, lies and manipulation. Break all of their power and oppression of my thought process. By my authority in Jesus Christ, I take back all territory I have handed over to the lies of Satan I bring myself under you’re the LORDSHIP of JESUS and I present all of myself as a living sacrifice to Christ alone. In his powerful name, I pray, Amen."
