Excerpt:

When I Seek Breakthrough,
Deliverance, or Transformation

Heavenly Father, thank You that You have delivered me out of the enemyís hand. I know You will continue to deliver me until the day I go to be with You. I call upon Your name, Lord. I implore You, deliver my soul (Psalm 116:4). I know You have begun a good work in me and You will complete it (Philippians 1:6). I know that in whatever state I am, I can be content because You will not leave me there forever (Philippians 4:11). I will praise You in the midst of any need I have for breakthrough, deliverance, or transformation, knowing that You see my need and will meet it in Your way and in Your time.

 

Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

ISAIAH 43:18-19

 

Lord, I know that wherever I am locked up in my life, You can set me free. I ask You to do that today. I invite Your presence in a new and powerful way right now to bring deliverance and transformation. I know that where Your Spirit is, there is liberty (2 Corinthians 3:17).

We had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead, who delivered us from so great a death and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us.

2 CORINTHIANS 1:9-1O

 

I worship You, Lord. You are my rock, my fortress, my deliverer, my strength in whom I trust, my shield, my stronghold, and my salvation (Psalm 18:2). You looked down from above and drew me out of many waters (Psalm 18:16).You have brought me into a broad place and You have delivered me because You delighted in me (Psalm 18:19). You are my God and I will praise You (Exodus 15:2). Lord, I praise You as my Almighty Deliverer. You have the power to set me free and transform my life. Thank You that You will break down every stronghold that the enemy of my soul has erected in and around me. You will break down every wall that separates me from all You have for me.

The Lord will deliver me from every evil work and preserve me for His heavenly kingdom. To Him be glory forever and ever.

2 TIMOTHY 4:18

 

When I Need Godís
Provision and Protection

I love You, Lord. I know that Your provision and protection are evidence of Your great love for me. I call upon You, for You are worthy to be praised, and You will save me from my enemies (Psalm 18:3). I rejoice in You, I trust in You, I shout for joy because You defend me. Thank You that You bless and surround me like a shield (Psalm 5:11-12). You are my God, and I am one of Your sheep for whom You extend Your hand of protection (Psalm 95:6-7). You are my refuge and my strength in the day of trouble, and I will sing Your praises forever (Psalm 59:16-17).

The LORD 15 my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in Him, and I am helped; therefore my heart greatly rejoices, and with my song I will praise Him.

PSALM 28:7

 

Lord, You are King and Lord over all my life. I surrender everything I have to You because I recognize that every good thing I have has been given to me by You as a sign of Your goodness, mercy, and love (James 1:17). Thank You that You are my Provider and You provide everything I need. Lord, I praise You as my Protector. Thank You for hiding me under the shadow of Your wings, from the wicked who oppress me, from my deadly enemies who surround me (Psalm 17:8-9). I give praise to You, for You have delivered my soul from death. You have kept my feet from falling, so that I may walk before You in the light of the living? (Psalm 56:12- 13).

Those who seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing.

PSALM 34:10
