Modified prayer for Operation Protective Shield
Feb 24, 2017
I received a phone call from a friend who reported coming under severe spiritual attack after praying the prayer posted this morning. Fortunately, he is experienced and discerning enough to know how to fight off such curses.
It made me realize that our opposition has taken steps to lay special curses on those who would try to block or nullify their curses upon President Trump. This is serious stuff. Don't take it lightly.
It occurred to me that I had not put anything into the prayer that had to do with self-defense. We ought to start out by putting on the whole armor of God. So I have added a paragraph near the beginning of the prayer.
Father in heaven, we come before your throne of grace in the name of Jesus and under His blood. I put on the whole armor of God: the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, the shoes of the preparation of the gospel of peace. I take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, and the shield of faith, by which all the fiery darts of the devil are quenched.
We ask you to put a wall of fire around President Trump, his cabinet, all who are employed in this administration, and all government officials. Let this be a wall of protection from all curses and hexes that are spoken by ungodly people everywhere. Let all such curses be rendered harmless by the blood of Jesus Christ, and let them fall to the ground with no detrimental effect.
We ask also that your Spirit would cover and fill all those who are within this wall of fire, so that Your goodness and kindness would bring sinners to repentance. Wherever there is evil, let it flee from Your presence. Demonstrate the power of Your love toward all. Show them how You have conciliated Your enemies. Teach Your people to be ambassadors of this word of conciliation, so that those who fight You may cease their strife and seek to be reconciled with You.
We pray also for all witches and Satanists, who do not yet know that you are not holding their trespasses against them. Be gracious to them and open their eyes, so that they may know that Jesus loved them so much that He came to die for them that they might be reconciled to Him.
Finally, we pray for all who remain in darkness, that the light of Truth may shine upon them. Pour out Your Holy Spirit upon the world, as You have promised, so that Your Kingdom may be manifested in its fulness.
Thank-you, heavenly Father, for answering this prayer, for we pray according to Your will in the name of Jesus. Amen.
