I am always frightened. Fear seems to have dominated my thinking. I am afraid of dying, but I am also afraid of living. Will you pray for me?
Dear Holy Father,
How often we can hear the world’s little voices so much easier than Yours. I recently heard it said that “we all have our little demons.” In Your Name, I come against those evil voices within the mind of my dear friend.
May she not fear or anxiously look around her for help. Pull back the veil to reveal Yourself as the Supreme and Final Authority who cancels out the plots made by other spirit rulers on her behalf. Let her see that You’ve surrounded her and are already sustaining her with Your powerful and righteous right hand. (Isaiah 41:10).
May she go limp, allowing You to hold her up and be her everything. Allow her to stop trying and admit that she is no longer strong on her own. At that point, O Lord, come in power with Your mighty love – sweeping, gushing, outpouring and filling her entire being (Romans 5:5).
Turn her fleshly thoughts of death into Spirit thoughts of life and peace (Romans 8:6). When satan accuses her today of inability, may she rejoice knowing that this very thing is in fact her glory. She has nothing good that dwells within her flesh, so it is all up to You (Romans 7:18).
Having come to both realize and glory in that fact, she can live without the constant condemnation (Romans 8:1). Open her eyes to see that since her husband of the Law wouldn’t release his grip, she instead died with You to enter a whole new dimension of life (Romans 7:1-4).
Open her eyes to see where she now lives- alongside You in the heavenlies (Eph. 2:6). Break the image of that Kingdom living being in the future and show her how it is already a reality. She is already living within You, living by faith and not by sight (2 Cor. 5:7) and therefore she is far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named, because she is alive in Christ (Eph. 1:21). In Spirit, may she live where You are the architect and builder (Hebrews 11:10).
Even so, Lord Jesus, come!
I pray these things by the authority that Jesus gave to me as His child (Matt. 28:18; Matt. 16:19), Amen.
(Thank you for inviting me to pray for you.
Grace and peace, Your Mentor)
