In the middle of the night,and you’re sleeping,suddenly you’re awaken,but you cannot move. Your eyelids cannot open,you cannot move your arms and legs. Can’t even move your arms and legs.
Breathing is difficult. It feels like something is sitting on your chest,in fact, you’re certain that something is.
A horror that can last for minutes but feels like it’s hours. Sleeping is no longer restful.
I heard so many people saying they would like to die in their sleep,because it’s painless.
You think you just close your eyes and wake up in heaven? No,many people who have died while sleeping, it’s because of demons that come in the night.
Scientists call it “sleep paralysis,” but this is a demonic attack.
Today,I stand with you in prayer,I DECLARE and DECREE in JESUS name,you are protected by the blood of JESUS. No demonic spirits will touch you from today,in JESUS mighty name. AMEN
<“St. Patrick’s Breastplate” Protective Prayer:
Celtic monks used it to start their day.The hymn was several stanzas long, and the last two stanzas were especially memorable and moving:
Christ be with me, Christ within me,
Christ behind me, Christ before me,
Christ beside me, Christ to win me,
Christ to comfort and restore me.
Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ in quiet, Christ in danger,
Christ in hearts of all that love me,
Christ in mouth of friend and stranger.
I bind unto myself the Name,
The strong Name of the Trinity;
By invocation of the same.
The Three in One, and One in Three,
Of Whom all nature hath creation,
Eternal Father, Spirit, Word:
Praise to the Lord of my salvation,
Salvation is of Christ the Lord
A Prayer for Spiritual Warfare
Jesus, sometimes I can almost sense the heaviness of pressure mounting and the ominous presence of darkness around me.
I recognize my enemy is at work again.
Whether he’s trying to discourage me to get sidetracked, to fall into temptation, to give up, or to take my eyes off you, he’s always hanging around.
I need your supernatural power, Lord, to stand strong and not surrender.
Physical force won’t help, because you’ve said the weapons of our warfare are different from those in this world.
As believers, ours are powerful and can demolish strongholds and lies.
These supernatural weapons originate from you. By your precious name and blood, Jesus, I’m asking you to confuse Satan and cancel his attempts to shut me and my influence down.
Help me not to become discouraged or to give in when heavy times of testing come.
When I’m tired and weak, you are strong, Lord, and you are my only source of help.
I cannot fight without you.
Teach me how to pray and to trust you to pull down those strongholds that keep me or others helpless.
Guard me from isolation that leaves me exposed and vulnerable.
I believe you destroyed the power of my enemy by your death and resurrection.
But like a bad penny, my enemy keeps showing up, whispering lies, twisting the truth, and attempting to inflate my selfish pride.
He never gives up.
I am declaring the devil and his demons liars today, Lord.
Through the power of your precious name and blood, I agree with your Word and the truth that you are in me and that you are greater than my enemy who wants to rule the world.
You, your Word, and prayer, Lord, are my secret weapons.
I belong to you, and that fills me with a powerful God-confidence.
I want to constantly dress in the spiritual armor you give me.
Help me use it to defend others from Satan’s fiery darts as well.
No one and nothing can snatch me away from your hand.
Strengthen my faith, Lord.
Forgive my sins, so that I may be clean in your righteousness.
Make me brave, so I can stand and fight the spiritual battles in my life and in our world.
Give me your wisdom and discernment so I won’t be caught off guard. Together, Lord, we’ll win, because in truth, you already have.
In Jesus’s powerful name before which every knee shall bow, Amen!
