Sovereign Lord, I pray that you will rescue ______________________ and me when we are in great pain, and redeem us from the hands of our enemies both seen and unseen. We pray that we will be like lions among the beasts of the forest in spiritual warfare, like young lions among flocks of sheep. May our hand be lifted up in triumph over our enemies, and may all our spiritual adversaries be cut off. As a nation, we ask you to give us horns of iron and hoofs of bronze that we may rise and thresh our enemies. We affirm, Lord Jesus, that you are the ruler who has come from Bethlehem, a town small among the clans of Judah. We affirm that your origins are from of old, from ancient times. We ask you to stand and shepherd your flock, the church, and to shepherd this nation in the strength of the Lord, and in the majesty of the name of Yahweh your God. We pray that your greatness will reach to the ends of the earth, and that your church and our land will live securely. We ask you to be our peace. We pray that you will tear down strongholds in our culture, every argument and high thing that has raised itself up against the knowledge of you. Destroy witchcraft and idolatry in our city and nation, that people will no longer cast spells or bow down to the work of their hands. This we ask in your name, Lord Jesus, amen.
