Today’s exhortation – Let’s pray…
I recognise that for many of you, this may be the first time you’ll be hearing in detail about demonic oppression and so before we begin, I would like us to say a prayer. This is more so because what I’m about to teach will be engaging in spiritual warfare. “Our Heavenly Father we come to You in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. From my heart Lord I commit myself without reservation to You. I pray that nothing but Your will be done and that Thy name may be glorified. Take charge O God and use me simply as Your vessel for Your truth and Your Spirit. O Father touch and prepare our hearts to receive with meekness the ingrafted word that is able to save our souls. Take away Lord by Your Spirit, any barrier, any any hinderance, any preconceptions, any prejudice that may hinder the entrance of Your word! We thank You that the entrance of Your word gives light, so even the simple can understand. (Psalm 119:130)
Sovereign Lord we also thank You for Your promise that Your word shall not return to You void but shall accomplish Your desire and achieve the purpose for that thing which You sent it. (Isaiah 55:11). O Lord we claim that promise afresh today in Jesus Name. We bind now on earth every opposing or hindering force of the enemy that will hinder or frustrate Your purpose according to the authority vested in us by The Lord Jesus Christ. We thank You that what we bind on earth is bound in heaven. We rejoice in You Lord for the victory that You won for us on the cross. O God, remove now, any anxiety, apprehension or confusion from the minds of my brothers and sisters. Let Your glory rest upon them and their house and I cover all of them with the blood of Jesus. We thank You in Jesus Name and we’ll be careful to ascribe to You alone all the glory and honour. Amen!
