Intro: Heading off into our day with prayer




It happens to all of us. We are in a hurry, or distracted, running late and we forget to start off our day with prayer. Heading off into our day without a solid foundation of prayer is like skipping breakfast, and we are soon feeling weak and confused and unable to cope with the spiritual trials of our day. We make mistakes, get angry, and say things we wish we hadn’t. We offend our Lord by sinning.

Spiritual warfare prayers are prayers that help strengthen us for whatever we will face in the day to come. They are like putting on armor to keep us strong and safe. Warfare prayers are preemptive strikes against the enemy of our souls.

By praying these spiritual warfare prayers before you start your day, you will prepare yourself for any difficulties or trials that will come and you will be spiritually strong and able to resist temptation and remain at peace.

You will be armored against the darts and barbs of the enemy and will be able to stand on the word and not fall. Prayer is powerful and effective. The Bible says, “The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16).

These prayers will put you in the right frame of mind and prepare you for your day. Choose one and pray it in the morning before you even get out of bed, or as you enjoy your breakfast and you’ll be prepared for whatever comes your way.

Here are 5 powerful and uplifting prayers to kick-start your morning!

    • Dearest Heavenly Father, please hear my prayer for Nathan Kikumba:
      1. Create in Nathan a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within him (Psalm 51:10).
      2. May Nathan walk after You, God, and fear You and keep Your commandments and obey Your voice. May he serve You and hold fast to You (Deuteronomy 13:4).
      3. May Nathan be strong and courageous and not fear or be in dread, for it is You, Lord, our God, who goes with him. You will never leave him or forsake him (Deuteronomy 31:6).
      4. May Nathan walk before You, God, as King David walked, with integrity of heart and uprightness, doing according to all that You have commanded him, and keeping Your statutes and rules (1 Kings 9:4).
      5. Like Timothy, may this Godly man be an example to believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith, and in purity (1 Timothy 4:12).
      In Jesus’ name, I pray, AMEN

    • @prince Mahamadou Ahmed FATHER, HOLY, LIVING,ONE TRUE GOD! We thank you for opening our brother’s eyes to your truth! We humbly, but boldly ask that you protect this child of yours from his adversaries. Let him be a light for those who have still not been given wisdom and understanding of who You are. Help him to remain strong in your name Lord! Guide him and protect him with Your love, wisdom and grace. We praise you Father for bringing this man out of the darkness, and ask that he be aware of your presence and protection, every day by your sovereignty. We ask that you teach Him that there is no reason for fear, that you Love him, and you are working all things for his good because of your grace. Allow Him to rest in your goodness and may he feel your arms around him. Jesus, you went out looking for this lost sheep of yours just like you promised, and he has come to you. We believe you are all powerful and loving, and we thank you and praise you for who you are. Amen

    • No weapon formed against you shall prosper!
      Jesus gave you authority over ALL the power of the enemy in Luke 10:19, and said nothing shall by any means harm you! All you have to do is walk in that authority KNOWING who you are IN Christ!
      God loves YOU. He chose YOU!
      Pastor Charles Stanley always says something that changed my walk more than anything – “Obey God, and leave the consequences to Him!”
      Just immerse yourself in the Bible and learn what the Lord is telling you for you, then walk that out. Not what somebody else says, what Jesus says for you!
      I say no to that spirit of fear encroaching on him right now in Jesus name, GO BACK TO THE ABYSS! Holy Spirit fill Mahamadou from the crown of his head to the soles of his feet! I claim a blood covering over him and everything he puts his hand to in your name, Lord, as he grows in relationship and oneness with You!
      You promised that whatever we ask in Your name will be done, and You are not a man that You should lie, so I bring M and all this before You knowing it is already accomplished, hallelujah! Because it is in the name of the mighty Son of the most high God we pray, AMEN!

    • According to Hebrew 12: 29 The LORD is a consuming Fire and 1King 18: 24 The Lord answer by Fire. Isaiah 43: 11 HE said with out HIM there will be no savior & 25 said HE blotted out ours transgressions (things that happen in our generation what we don’t even know third and fourth even up to 7 & 8 generation) and our sin HE remember no more.
      Isaiah 43: said HE choose us, HE picked us, going through fire the flame cannnot scorched us even through the desert HE will provide water.
      What I am saying I believe/live in Prayer because Joshua 1: 9 say Fear not for where ever you go HE is before/with you

  • Hi, good day. I have a question, I was listening to a pastor and he was saying that that the spirit cannot be troubled. God created us body, soul, spirit. So the body sees and hear things and feed the soul and then the soul feeds the spirit either good or bad, so if u r feeding the soul bad things it can relay bad things to the spirit and the spirit is troubled. So my question is, can the spirit be troubled.

  • Thank you Lord for your endless love, protection over me and my family, provisions, wars fought that we don’t know, mercies and graces we receive everyday.

    I pray Lord that You continue with the protection, guidance, provision, care despite us being sinners. Help us grow closer to you every step of the way.

    I pray for financial breakthrough to let have a home of my own without renting and staying in peoples’ home being despised, with no honor. Lord you understand your creator more than any body else.
