Prayer, Plain and Simple

…The devil… was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. (John 8:44)

We all have voices in our heads, and often these voices are echoing lies that we believe and incorporate into our lives. Lies often become embedded into our minds through trauma, things that have happened that should not have happened. They worm their way into our minds and personalities and become a part of us; but with the Truth, coupled with the blood of Jesus, we can reject and conquer each lie we have adopted into our identity.

We are diving deeply into the negative emotions that hold us back from our destinies. Today we will pray about powerlessness. We all have times when we feel stuck, unable to change our circumstances, and trapped in situations and dilemmas.

The Bible tells us that when we are weak, we are strong. While we feel powerless, the truth of the matter is that when we look to Jesus, His strength can take over and compensate for our weaknesses, making us strong. As with all of God’s promises, they appear too good to be true, but true they are when we receive them in faith.

God has the antidote for powerlessness:  it is His strength. His strength is made perfect in our weakness.

When we encounter the love of God and receive it into our hearts through faith in prayer, we can uproot the lies that have deposited a powerless-mentality into our hearts and souls.

Jesus paid the ultimate price so we could be delivered from our weakness. Just as He raised the dead, restored withered hands, and strengthened lame legs, He is able and willing to deliver you from all your weaknesses. Our sin killed Him, so we can go free. Pray this plain and simple prayer today.

Father,

I thank You that You have made a way for me to come out of powerlessness to learn to walk in Your strength. Because of the price You paid for me and the promises you have made in Your Word…

I believe and declare that I am empowered by Your strength to do everything You have called me to do.

I believe and declare that through Your strength, I am ready for anything! I am equal to any task You have called me to do, for You are infusing me with Your inner strength and confident peace.

I believe and declare that nothing shall be impossible for me today, for the omnipotent God lives in me, causing all my weaknesses to turn to strengths.

I believe and declare that the powerful grace of Jesus is working in and through me now, compensating for all my weaknesses, for His power perfects my weaknesses, making them strengths. So, while at one time I bemoaned my weaknesses, now I boast about them; for they are all swallowed up in the power that Jesus exerts on my behalf. To the extent I am weak (which is quite an extent!), I am strong!

I believe and declare that when I am confronted by my sense of weakness, then I am truly strong. When I feel powerless is when I can access Your power.

I believe and declare that I will not be tormented and ruled by my weaknesses any longer, for I have been set free from the bondage to powerlessness through the love of my Father God, the redeeming power of Jesus Christ, and the constant presence of the Holy Spirit in my life.

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen!

I can do all things which He has called me to do through Him who strengthens and empowers me to fulfill His purpose—I am self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency; I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him who infuses me with inner strength and confident peace. (Philippians 4:13 Amplified Bible)

For with God nothing is or ever shall be impossible. (Luke 1:37 Amplified Bible)

“My grace is sufficient for you; My lovingkindness and My mercy are more than enough—always available—regardless of the situation; for My power is being perfected and is completed and shows itself most effectively in your weakness.” Therefore, I will all the more gladly boast in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may completely enfold me and may dwell in me. (2 Corinthians 12:9)

…For when I am weak in human strength, then I am strong, truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength. (2 Corinthians 12:10)
