When you hear, see or read of people in trouble please do not get into legalism at any point. For many good works have been prevented from ever happening only because people preferred to live legalistically. The Holy Scriptures tell us clearly; do not quench the Spirit. So never let legalism prevent you from doing what is holy and acceptable to the Lord God. One such good work is to pray for people who are in trouble or danger.
“If you feel that you can follow a few little rules or some clever gimmicks to make you a mature Christian, then you have fallen into a subtle trap of legalism.” ( J. Vernon McGee)
If you know of an impending hurricane or blizzard coming to destroy people in any place, then pray for their safety right away. You are not sinning by praying for their welfare. Never get into a mindset in which you will pray only if you get a special call to prayer at church by the preacher.
I’m not talking about bypassing your leaders in Christ. I’m talking about what you are to do in faith whether your leaders tell you or not. You don’t need a special nudge by your pastor to brush your teeth regularly, you’d know its right to do it anyway. You don’t need a call out to feed your children daily, you know its your duty anyway. You don’t need to be begged by your boss to come to office everyday, you know that going by the rules is expected anyway. Hope you understand that the same logic applies to interceding for others in need.
On another note, there are some people who need a special announcement to pray because they are clueless on what to pray at all. Such people too don’t need to be stuck that loop forever. For the Lord God is not impressed by lofty words and shouts without faith, but rather by prayers said with a humble and contrite heart. You can pray like this; “O Lord Jesus save these people from all harm and danger for the sake of your Holy Name. Amen”. Or you are free to pray in a simple way but do remember to pray in faith and purity at all times.
Christ be with you as you pray for those in need of healing and deliverance in the land of the living!

Psalm 31:16-17,19-21 Verses:
Make Your face shine upon Your servant;
Save me for Your mercies’ sake.
Do not let me be ashamed, O Lord, for I have called upon You;
Let the wicked be ashamed;
Let them be silent in the grave.
Let the lying lips be put to silence,
Which speak insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
Oh, how great is Your goodness,
Which You have laid up for those who fear You,
Which You have prepared for those who trust in You
In the presence of the sons of men!
You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence
From the plots of man;
You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion
From the strife of tongues.
Blessed be the Lord,
For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!
Pray for England especially in these days of evil and deception and treachery that been causing this nation to lose its glory. This nation who had great saints and preachers in yesteryear’s now needs the salvation and deliverance which comes from the Jesus Christ the true Lord and King. Don’t fear for England but pray in faith!
Though this a re-post I still hope and and pray that you are blessed and totally delivered from evil in the name of Jesus.
As believers in Jesus we are in a state of constant spiritual warfare with the Devil and his kingdom. There is no opt out, you were born into this. Surely Jesus overcome the death, sin and Satan by the shedding of his blood on the cross and rising from the dead on the third day. Also as the Devil who was originally a great angel, was cast out of heaven along with his angels for rebelling against the Lord God.
Christ will come again on Judgement day to permanently judge all workers of evil especially the Devil and his angels. The Devil however still wants to continue to engage in war against Jesus and his followers because he is a gambler. Somehow he is highly self deceived, thinking that he can still sneak out a victory against God. But let me tell you that the Devil never has and never ever will win against God and his holy angels.
So the Evil One tries to harm people who are still on earth by some trick or the other.
Remember he even tried to tempt Jesus but couldn’t make a sinner of Jesus! Now after the resurrection of Christ, he can’t tempt Jesus but he surely keeps trying to undermine your faith by various means. He even today tries to oppress who so ever he can take down most easily whether an unbeliever or an ignorant believer.
Satan is full of hate against all humans even those who are non-Christian (even atheists) because man was created in the image and likeness of God (read Genesis 1:26). Now with the preaching of the Gospel of Christ and the New Testament, we must understand that the Devil hates Christians even more because they are a new creation in Christ (read 2 Corinthians 5:17)
Jesus had a lot of to say about Satan and his evil ways. You’d like to know at this point what Jesus said about Satan (click here). One thing that the Bible teaches is that the Devil knows his time is running short. Revelation 12:12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe for the earth and for the sea: because the devil is gone down unto you, having great wrath, knowing that he hath but a short time.
We therefore must not be ignorant of the Devils plan of hate and murder. He is the original terrorist and is the father of all terrorists. With Jesus on your side you need not fear him. However what is important is that you exercise your faith in Christ. Being willing and then actually participating in spiritual warfare against the Evil One is a sure sign of faith. Our enemies are spiritual, who at times deceive humans to do their bidding on earth. So instead of being hateful of sinners pray for their conversion and if they don’t stop sinning then pray for deliverance from evil.
Pray for wisdom from Christ and then act on it. Pray that evil doesn’t overcome you. Stop crying about corrupt politicians and instead pray for good governance. Don’t worry about your children’s health and education, follow wisdom and pray for them. Pray alone or pray with your church against the powers of darkness but most importantly pray in faith.
Here are a few sermon videos on Spiritual warfare that help you be good at fighting for the Lord Jesus Christ:

Heavenly Father, I ask for the grace to forgive everyone in my life who has wronged me. For your word says
“for if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: But if you forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” Matthew 6:14-15
I also understand that to forgive does not mean the act done was okay or acceptable in the eyes of God nor does it mean ungodly acts should be allowed to continue. I simply choose to forgive as Christ forgave and ask God that you lay it not to their charge for they do not know what they do.
I know that you will give me strength to forgive and I thank you that you love me even more than I love myself and want happiness for me even more than I desire it for myself.
I forgive myself for all my past sins, faults and failings. For all that is truly bad in myself or all that I think is bad I do forgive myself right now.
I forgive my Mother for all the times she hurt me.
I forgive my father for all the times he hurt me.
I forgive my Spouse, In-laws, Relatives and Friends. I forgive my Neighbors, my Associates, School Teachers, Clergy and Service People for any hurt or wrong they caused me, I release them now in Jesus name‘.
Thank you, Heavenly Father, that I am free of the evil of unforgiveness. Let your Holy Spirit fill me with light; let every dark area of my mind be enlightened in Jesus’ name.
Your throne oh Lord is like a fiery flame, you are the God that answers by fire. The fire goes before you oh Lord and it burns up your enemies. Lord release your fire and burn up the works of darkness in my life. Baptize me Lord again, and again and again and again every day for the rest of my time on earth with for filling of your Holy Spirit and Fire. Let your fire be in my hands to heal the sick and cast out devils. Let your fire burn in my eyes, my heart, my belly my mouth and my feet. Let your fire be in my tongue to preach and prophecy, I receive tongues of fire. Let your word be preached with fire, make me a minister of fire, deliver me with your fire. Let your fire protect me and cover me. As I go forth, let the works of witchcraft and occultism be consumed with your fire. Purify my life with your fire. Let the Spirits of Lust and Perversion be destroyed in your fire. Release the Spirit of burning to burn up the unholy things in my life. Lick them up with your fire in Jesus’ name!
I release the sword of the Lord against the powers of hell in my life and in the lives of those you send me to witness to in the name of Jesus. Teach me father how to use your sword, which is the written and spoken word referred to in Ephesians 6:17.
Let your fire protect me and cover me. Let the works of witchcraft and occultism be burned in your fire! Purify my life with your fire God. Release the Spirit of burning to burn up the works of Darkness. Let your glory kindle a burning like the burning of a fire. Burn up the unholy things in my life God. I will wet your glittering sword and render your vengeance against the enemy. I will gird your sword upon my thigh and ride prosperously throughout the earth. Send your holy angels with flaming swords to fight my battles in the heavens and the battle over my heart and mind. I release the arrow of the Lords deliverance in my life.
According to Hebrews 4:12 I now divide soul and Spirit and discern the thoughts and intents of my heart. I now release your 2 edged sword to sever any ties to the enemy.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil (Matthew 6:13)
I somehow felt like putting an explanation about being willing to be delivered from evil, instead of just giving out the Simple Self Deliverance Prayer video. And I hope you benefit from this. Here we go:
Jesus came to seek and save the lost, and also to destroy the works of the Devil (refer Luke 19:10 and 1 John 3:8). So, it’s the will of God that any who believes in Jesus Christ be saved from sin and the devil. This calls for your will power to be in line with the Word of God. With that being said, one must be aware that demons try to affect the individual’s will power. Commonly they make a temptation to sin more appealing as per the individual’s personality.
However, there are also demons which oppress people in various forms such as unnatural physical disturbances and sounds, evil thoughts and dreams etc. At times to an external observer, such an oppressed person might even seem insane. One may wonder what do such demons want to achieve at all. Well, by this they want to take over a person’s will power or even hinder that person from doing God’s will. So, those who want to do the desires of God more fully must not submit to such fear tactics of evil spirits.
Jesus during his time on earth cast out demons out of people. He did not compromise with these vile creatures who are Satan’s minions but set people free from them. A Christian therefore must follow in the example of Jesus Christ and stop allowing one self to be oppressed by evil spirits.
You need to be willing to be rescued by the Lord God. Be sincere and humble enough to stop liking any and every sin. In fact you need to repent of your sins. Once you’re willing to repent you are all set to go for deliverance of oneself from all that is evil. Whenever you feel that you are being spiritually oppressed (this is different from possession) by evil spirits it’s important to pray in the name of Jesus that you are free from their oppression. Without any further delay, here’s the prayer video:
