Prayer of #Salvation

Heavenly Father I repent of my sins
And I accept Jesus Christ as my personal savior
I believe that Jesus Christ sacrificed himself on the cross for my sins
So that I can be born again
I belief that Jesus Christ spilled his blood on the cross
and his blood has washed me clean of my sins.
I believe that Jesus Christ defeated death and ascended into heaven where he has prepared a place for me.
I believe in Jesus Name that I am saved
and I, who were a branch of a wild olive tree,
have been grafted in to the olive tree of Christ,
and I Invite the Holy Ghost to live inside of me
Heavenly Father use the Holy Ghost which I have excepted inside of me,
to guide me in your ways as your will commands it,
because my flesh is weak but though your spirit all things are possible.

I thank you Heavenly Father

The prayer of the Apostle Paul

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed me with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,

just as You chose me in Him before the foundation of the world,

that I would be holy and blameless before You.

In love God adopt me,
as your own through Jesus Christ,
according to the kind intention of His will.
Praise be to the glory of His grace, which He freely bestowed on me in the Beloved.

In Jesus Christ I have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of my trespasses, according to the riches of His grace which He lavished on me.

In all wisdom and insight God make known to me the mystery of your will, according to Your kind intention which You purposed in Jesus Christ with a view to an administration suitable to the fullness of the times, that is,
the summing up of all things in Christ,
things in the heavens and things on the earth.

In Jesus Christ also I have obtained an inheritance, having been predestined according to You purpose who works all things after the counsel of Your will,
to the end.

In Jesus Christ after listening to the message of truth, the gospel of my salvation and believing in the message of Jesus Christ,
I am sealed in Jesus Christ with the Holy Spirit of promise,
who is given as a pledge of my inheritance,
with a view to the redemption of God’s own possession,
to the praise of Your glory.

I have faith in the Lord Jesus which exists in me and my believe in your love for me,

I will not cease giving thanks to you,

I ask You Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory,
may you give me a spirit of wisdom
and of revelation in the knowledge of You.

I pray that the eyes of my heart may be enlightened, so that I will know what is the hope of Your calling,
what are the riches of the glory of my inheritance in Jesus Christ,
and what is the surpassing greatness of Your power toward me who believe.

These are in accordance with the working of the strength of Your might which You brought about in Christ,
when You raised Jesus Christ from the dead and seated Him at Your right hand in the heavenly places,
far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named,
not only in this age but also in the one to come.

And You put all things in subjection under the feet of Jesus Christ, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.

Give me the stewardship of Your grace so that by revelation, mysteries of your will would be revealed to me.

Give me insight into the mystery of Christ,
which in other generations was not made known to the sons of men,

in the Spirit; let me partake in the promise in Christ Jesus
according to the gift of Your grace and according to the working of your power.

Let me know the unfathomable riches of Christ, to bring to light what is the administration of the mystery which for ages has been hidden in God who created all things;
so that the manifold wisdom of Your might may be made known through me and the authorities in the heavenly places.

I bow my knees before You my Heavenly Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name, that you would grant me, according to the riches of Your glory, strength with power through Your Spirit in the inner man, so that Christ may dwell in my heart through faith; and that I am rooted and grounded in love, and able to comprehend and to know the love of Christ which surpasses all knowledge,
so that I may be filled up to all the fullness of God.

I ask this in Christ Jesus our Lord, in whom we have bold and confident access through faith to You my God.

To You be the glory
in the church
in Christ Jesus
for all generations
forever and ever.


Prayer for protection

Today I choose, Lord, to be strong in the Lord and in the strength of Your might. I put on the full armor of God, that I may be able to stand firm against the schemes of all that is evil.

For my fight is not against people, Lord, but it’s against the rulers, against the powers, against the spiritual forces of wickedness.

Therefore, I take up Your armor that I may be able to resist that which are not of you, and having done everything, to stand firm in you God my heavenly Father and Jesus Christ my savior.

I stand firm in you my Heavenly Father and in your son, my savior Jesus Christ, therefore, having girded my loins with truth. I gird my loins with the truth, Lord, that I’m your son (daughter); that I’m a man (woman) of God, an ambassador for Christ, a minister of reconciliation.

I thank You that You love me, that Your hand is upon me, that You never leave me or forsake me. I gird my loins with the truth that I’ve been crucified with Christ; nevertheless I live, yet not I but Christ who lives within me.

And the life that I now live I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. Lord Jesus, I was buried with you in baptism and raised to walk in newness of life.

Therefore I consider myself to be dead to sin (name the sins you struggle with if any), but alive to God through Christ Jesus. I thank You for Your grace, Your mercy and Your favor that rests upon me. You are for me and not against me; You plan for my victory and not my defeat.

And I agree with You that because You are holy, I am to be holy today. Please fill me with Your Spirit and help me to walk in Your holiness at all times today, in Jesus’ name.

I put on the breastplate of righteousness now Lord and I thank You Lord Jesus that You are my breastplate and You are my Righteousness.

You have declared me to be righteous in Your sight and worthy before You.

Help me to walk now in Your truth and righteousness at all times. Please protect my emotions today. I come against and take authority over everything and everyone that is not of you.

I take authority now over every spirit of strife that would come against me; I bind moodiness and irritability; I bind accusation and every lying spirit. I take authority over discontentment and choose to walk in Your contentment.

Father, I armed my feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace. Thank You that You are my peace and my joy; fill me now with Your Spirit and help me to abide in Your peace, in Your joy, in Your love and in the power of the Holy Spirit, at all times, no matter what the difficulties or circumstances.

Father, in addition to all that I take up the shield of faith, with which I can extinguish all the fiery-tipped darts of the evil one, for You are my shield and You are my faith.

Thou, O Lord, art a shield about me; You’re my glory and the lifter of my head. Help me today to be full of faith and full of
the Holy Spirit; help me to walk by faith and not by sight or emotions, in the Spirit and not in the flesh.

Help me to trust You, to rest joyfully in You; to be settled, surrendered and submitted to You; to be persevering and confident in You and discerning at all times.

Father, I put on the helmet of salvation and I ask You to protect my mind and my thoughts; help me to think like You, to act like You
and to respond like You at all times, in the name of Jesus. Let my mind be off limits and impenetrable by evil.

Father, I take up the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, and I ask You to help me to speak Your word with all boldness,
authority and power, quickly against all that is not of you, in the name of Jesus.

I clothe myself with humility, with love and compassion, with kindness and gentleness, with patience and self-control, with holiness and purity and with forgiveness. Please help me to walk this way before You and man at all times today, in the name of Jesus,


Prayer given by Jesus Christ

Our Father which art in heaven,

Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth,

as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our sins,

as we forgive those whom sin against us.

And lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil:

For thine is the kingdom,

and the power,

and the glory,

for ever.


A Christian Psalms 23 Prayer

Heavenly Father
I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ
Though his blood which washed me clean so that I can stand in front of You with out sin
LORD be my shepherd,
so that I shall not want.

Make me lie down in green pastures;
Lead me beside quiet waters
and Restore my soul;

Guide me in the path of righteousness
For Your name’s sake.

When I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
Let me not fear evil, and let me know you are with me;

Let Thy rod and Thy staff, comfort me.

Prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;
Anointed my head with oil;
and let my cup overflow.

Surely I believe

goodness and loving kindness will follow me all the days of my life,
because you are with me.

And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.
Because you are my God,
and I believe that your son Jesus Christ died for me on the cross,
His blood washed me clean,
and I believe that that Jesus Christ prepared a place for me in heaven.

In Jesus name.
