A DOCTRINAL PRAYER

Gracious Heavenly Father, We desire to draw near Your throne of grace with boldness and confidence knowing that You are ready to provide help, grace, and mercy in our time of need. 

 

This privilege is not anything we have gained on our own merit, but a privilege You have given us as Your children.  You are the vine and we are the branches.  All that we are and all that we possess come because we are connected to and dependent upon You.

 

We come before You out of obedience to Your Word and on the basis of the holiness and righteousness that is ours through Jesus Christ.  According to Your Word we desire to pray only according to Your will and believe that the Holy Spirit will intercede for us during this time of prayer.

 

We offer you a sacrifice of praise from our lips for who You are and what You do.  We stand united in victory with our Savior Jesus Christ.  We stand in the truth that we are children of God, born from above, and joint heirs of Jesus Christ.

 

Even though we are aliens and strangers on this earth, we thank you that our true citizenship is in heaven and that we have been seated with You in the heavenlies.  Father, please accept our praise and adoration for the victory You won at Calvary.  We thank You that Jesus experienced the same temptations we face yet, He was without sin and defeated Satan’s deceptive attacks.

 

Thank You for the assurance that we too can experience victory over the enemy by appropriating Your victory at Calvary as our own.  We praise You for the crucifixion and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ.  We affirm that Your work on the cross defeated Satan and that through the shed blood of Jesus Christ we find freedom from the bondage of sin.

 

Thank You that we are new creatures in Christ created for good works.  We desire to live according to our new nature.  Help us to bring glory and honor to Your name through our thoughts and actions.  In accordance with Your Word, we yield the members of our bodies to the control and influence of the Holy Spirit.

 

Direct and guide us as we desire to walk according to the Spirit of God.  Fill us with Your Spirit and help us be sensitive to His leading as we walk in faith according to our new identity in Christ.  Help us realize and recognize that You have provided us with everything needed for a life that brings glory and honor to Your name.

 

Heavenly Father, we claim our position of authority and victory over Satan and his demons.  We affirm that You raised Jesus from the dead and seated Him on a throne of power far above all principalities and powers and that we are seated there with Him.

 

We take up and put on the full armor of God as we walk on this earth.  Help us discern the deceptive schemes of the enemy.  Thank You for watching over us and caring for us as a shepherd cares for his sheep.  We love You God with all of our being and only desire to please You.

 

In the matchless name of Jesus Christ, we pray.  Amen.
