3.16.2 Prayer to Claim Authority Over the Enemy (satan)
Pray and Claim Authority Over the Enemy
Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I command you (Luke 10:19, Mark 16:17) devil and all evil spirits in the sound of my voice to loose me and leave my presence. By the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of my testimony (Rev.12:11) I overcome you devil and evil spirits, in the Name of Jesus Christ Who died on the cross for my sins and the sins of this world. I am a Blood bought child of God (Col 1:14) and satan, you are trespassing, you have no right to come near me, my land, animals, or property, including the atmosphere about me. I plead the Blood of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ of Nazareth as a thick hedge of protection against all evil spirits , as a wedge between us that you cannot penetrate. I speak the Blood against you satan, in Jesus Christ’s Holy Name. It is written in God’s Word that no weapon formed against me can prosper, I stand on the Word of God, He is my Shield and my Buckler (Psalms 35:2). He says in Deuteronomy 33:27 that He thrusts out the enemy and says to me “destroy” them! Lord Jesus Christ I ask You according to John 14:13-14, to “destroy the enemy”. Satan, you are a defeated foe! You have been defeated and by the authority and power given to me in Luke 10:18-20, I command you to leave (Mark 16:17), I loose you to the Abyss, the dry waste place, with all your minions in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Lord Jesus Christ I ask according to John 14:13-14 to destroy all the dark destruction that came with the enemy, cleanse me in Your precious Blood, heal me, restore me, and seal me up in Your Glory. I ask You to shut all demonic doors that need to be shut and seal them so the evil spirits can never come through them again. Lord Jesus, I ask You to loose Your angels over me and this place to protect me, the animals, and this land from the enemy from coming back here. Amen.
3.16.3 Power of Your Spoken Word – Sins of the Tongue
Power of Your Spoken Words - Sins of the Tongue
Introduction: the tongue is powerful and we can use it for good or for evil. (God’s word tells us that the power of life and death is in the tongue) We know that God created everything by speaking it into existence.
The spirit world is controlled by the Word of God. We are a part of that spirit world. The natural or physical world is to be controlled by man speaking God’s Word. The spoken word is God’s creative power. Every believer has the spirit of God dwelling in them and because of that, the words we speak carry God’s creative power!
The word of God warns us to guard our words as we will be held accountable for what we speak. Matthew 12: 36-37 says;
But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the Day of Judgment. For by your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned."
The enemy is very aware of the power our words have and takes advantage of the negative words we speak in our daily lives. By our words, we can speak curses upon ourselves, those whom we love or those we have contact with during our everyday life. Three types of curses that we speak that can have negative affects upon our lives are;

In the name of Jesus, I break the power of all generational and ancestral curses having to do with sins of the tongue. I break the power of all curses that I have spoken against myself or anyone else. I in Jesus Name break all word curses spoken against me, and by faith I cut every soul tie that would affirm these curses. I ask you, Lord, to turn all those curses into blessings because you love us. Lord, I pray I would speak words of life and not death. Lord hear my prayer as Your word said in Isaiah 6:5-7. Lord purge my lips, as I put my own fingertip on my own lips would you cleanse my lips as you did Isaiah’s lips with a hot coal and grant me a new beginning to use my mouth for speaking holiness and blessings. And now Lord, as I touch my lips grant me a new beginning In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen
