How to make prayers for spiritual warfare?
In a spiritual war the confrontation of spiritual powers is generated, in this war God makes manifest his power, his strength, his sovereignty through the church and the confrontation is about satan and all the ways in which he and his angels attack the world .
Having to fight against the forces of evil and against Satan himself, the church must show her greatest faith, because it is she who will show her the power and sovereignty of God, the church is her vehicle and must be prepared.
Dear Heavenly Father;
Lord, Creator and Owner of the entire universe;
You who are faithful guardian of the truth
Today I come to you, convinced of your power
Strengthened in my Faith and Protected from your armor
To ask you to join me in this war that I am going to wage today
I implore you my Lord to hear my call for help
And free me from everything that does not belong to me
because it is not yours, nor does it honor your purpose, Lord.
Allow to be happy in your Sacred Kingdom
My God, my Lord. Make me Victorious in this War,
Give me the strength to cast out evil and erase the darkness with your light.
Thank you Beloved Father for never abandoning me. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen
It is important before beginning to perform a spiritual warfare prayer to know well the differences between a prayer, an intercession and a spiritual warfare. When we pray, it is a personal communication with God, it is an intimate conversation in which we make God aware of our needs, gratitude, among others.
For its part, an intercession or prayer of intercession is when we pray for other people, that is, we assume the problems, needs, illnesses, etc., of other people and pray, beg, ask for them, guided by love and mercy.
An intercessor is then a believer who feels the desire to pray for another and take his place, identifies with the pain of others, is in communion with God the Father. For its part, in the Spiritual Warfare, we enter the enemy’s territory in a violent manner and we take away what belongs to us, what is ours, the spiritual warfare is carried out in an aggressive atmosphere because we must fight to be able to snatch it from the forces of evil. , what we have gone to look for.
Armor for spiritual warfare prayers
Knowing then the differences between prayer, intercession and Spiritual Warfare, let us begin by knowing how we must prepare ourselves to be able to pray for spiritual warfare. In the letters written by Paul we find many references to face us, however it is in the letter written to Ephesians chapter 6 verses 12 to 18 that tells us everything in great detail.
“For we do not fight against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly realms. Therefore, take on the whole armor of God, so that you can resist in the evil day, and having finished everything, stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having your loins girded with truth, and clothed with the breastplate of righteousness, and your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace.
Above all, take the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the fiery darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying at all times with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and being vigilant thereto with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints.”
belt of truth
As Saint Paul clearly describes in his letter to Ephesians we must be dressed for war and put on armor. The first piece of that armor is The Truth, the belt of truth, what is the truth? There is no other than the word of God, that is why we must be scholars of the word, always pray and ask for wisdom to understand the word of God and not interpret it. Therefore knowing the word of God is the first piece of armor.
When then we are dressed with the belt of truth we have some of the most notable strengths to be able to overcome the lies of evil, we are able to respond in spiritual battles, always carrying spiritual authority. (See also: Prayer for the united family ).
Breastplate of Justice
The second piece of armor is the breastplate of justice, for spiritual warfare it is a must to always have our breastplate of justice on. When we are saved we have our hearts full of justice, we must of course be clothed with the truth so as not to put our justice on trial.
shoes of peace
The third piece of armor is the shoes of peace, we must stand firmly on our feet wearing shoes that allow us to be well anchored, so when satan comes to push us down we will be very stable and strong to withstand his onslaught. When we walk safely on the peace that God gives us, nothing and no one can disturb us.
It is on that footwear that we must be firm the peace that faith gives us, the one that makes us praise, the one that keeps us with hope, the one that has control of our heart full of justice. Every attack that tries to take away that peace, we must face it with the truth of God, we cannot forget that it is a spiritual war.
With these three pieces we have the armor of God and we must always have it, we cannot leave it forgotten or stored, it must always be at hand, because we cannot be careless with the enemy, remember that he is treacherous and attacks when we least expect it.
shield of faith
We must also have the shield of Faith, it is definitive to win victories in the battles we face. Remember that it is faith that allows God to enter. Clearly faith is shown as a truly powerful weapon in the Book of 1 John chapter 5, verse 4” For whatever is born of God overcomes the world; and this is the victory that has overcome the world, our faith.” To win a spiritual war you have to have faith.
To make prayers for spiritual warfare, this must be closely linked to a truth, since otherwise it is not a prayer based on Faith. Faith will always be manifested in our actions, not only in words, therefore, if An onslaught of evil spirits makes me worry that we are losing the battle, because that means that my Faith is not as strong as it needs to be to defeat them.
Helm of Salvation
We need the helmet of salvation, by putting on the helmet we cover and protect our mind. God is above everything, but if we do not protect the mind, we may lose the spiritual war, our mind is a weak point.
By putting on the helmet of salvation, nothing will be able against us because we will be accepting life as it is happening, without bothering us, without worrying, without judging what happens because we are aware that what is happening in our present is what God wants us to do. be period.
Sword of the Spirit
Finally, the Sword of the Spirit, is if we analyze everything that makes up the armor, the only offensive and non-defensive weapon that we have. The sword of the spirit is to defend ourselves when we have the forces of the evil one so close that we feel that he is controlling my will, my mind, my emotions.
That is when we use it, it does not matter if we see the enemy stronger than us, it does not matter if our physical condition is at a disadvantage, the sword of the spirit is the word of God, we declare it, in front of the enemy we use the passages of the scriptures that they are related to the situation that is presenting itself and that makes us weak in the face of evil. The word of God will always win.
Already then dressed in the armor and all its pieces including the sword of the spirit, before going to war you must say a prayer, because it is in prayer that you put on the armor. Since we know each of the pieces that make up the armor to be able to go to spiritual warfare, we are ready to build our prayer. See also: Evening Prayer to the Holy Spirit )
First we put on the Belt of Truth and say: Beloved God, owner of absolute truth, I must listen to many voices in my life and many of them gain influence on me at times, sometimes even my thoughts seek to interpret your word and I am aware that that is not right.
That is why, beloved Father, I ask that the Holy Spirit be my guide and make me find the truth, that it be he who guides my decisions, my thoughts and my word. Allow me Lord to always speak the truth and that my actions are consistent with your word my God, in the name of Jesus. Amen
We put on the Breastplate of Justice and pray: Father you live in me and I am saved, you filled my heart with justice, but I am human Lord and I always want to please you, I am aware that the law is not my justice, because I am a sinner even in my best day Lord, give me your Grace Lord. In the name of Jesus. Amen
Now we have to put on the shoes of peace: Thank you Father for allowing me to have been touched by the Holy Spirit, allow him to always accompany me to keep me strengthened and not let anything disturb me, let nothing take away my peace, may he give answers that do not disappoint my Lord, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
Hold tightly to the shield of faith: Beloved Creator Father, I sometimes face fear, anxiety, doubt, it is in those moments when I need you not to leave me alone because I do not want to resort to anything other than to my faith in you Lord. Show me your presence my God, remind me of your existence Lord, remind me to pray, call on you to keep me firm and strong in my faith. In the name of Jesus. Amen
Take the helmet of salvation: I feel safe my Lord, Thank you for your presence in my life, for the Holy Spirit that always accompanies me, he reminds me of your promise, I praise you and bless your name my Lord, because there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ. Take my sins, my mistakes, my faults, allow me to walk confidently your way Lord. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
Take the sword of the Spirit: in prayers for spiritual warfare we ask: Lord, allow me today and always the wisdom of your word, the one that is appropriate to my answers, the one that is fair in my actions. Always show me the scriptures that are consistent with the moment that disturbs me so that I can respond with such force and forcefulness that there is no possibility that satan will try to trick me again with his lies Lord. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
Victory: Already in victory we pray asking God to reveal our weaknesses, any wrong words, to show you when you have answered for yourself and not inspired or guided by the Holy Spirit. At that moment when the lies are revealed to you, you must counteract it with a truth and firmly declare that it will never again affect your life, or that of your loved ones, or those who are close to you.
Declare Victory, over evil, you have triumphed.
