Personal Covering

Father God, I thank You for having chosen me in Christ before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in Your sight.1 In response to Your loving kindness and mercy, I surrender myself to You to be Your living sacrifice — to live in holiness and righteousness, delighting in bringing pleasure to Your heart.2

LORD, I repent and do not want to conform to the ways of this world – imitating its values, ideals, opinions, and culture. LORD, I permit Your Spirit to convict me and cleanse my mind from every prideful and ungodly presumptuous thought which exalt itself against the knowledge of You. LORD, I bring every thought and imagination to yield in obedience to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.3

LORD, I repent of every “I, me and myself— centredness,” unforgiveness, bitter envy, jealousy, greed, and pride in my heart. LORD, I ask that I be rooted and established in Your love so that I am in You and You are in me.4 Empower me with Your love to love my neighbors.

LORD, I thank You for the Blood of Christ who, through the eternal Spirit, offered himself unblemished to God, cleanse my consciences from acts that lead to death so that I may serve You.
5 I now invite You, Lord Jesus, for Your Presence to saturate my heart and my home as I consecrate this time to You.

  5. Hebrews 9:14

Ephesians 6:12-13, 18 tells us why we always need to be covered in prayer. We must learn that the unseen spiritual warfare that is coming against us must be fought with the weapons of God; faith and prayer.

A prayer cover is a spiritual shield that you raise that surrounds yourself or the person you are praying for. When you pray a prayer cover over someone, you are, in effect, wrapping them up in prayer. By praying and confessing according to God’s truth in His Word, which is powerful, living, and greater than any troubles known to men, you can withstand the hard shakings that are coming to the world. 

When you are covered in the prayer of faith, you produce the right environment for God to work His wonders; as God’s light shines forth, the darkness of this world is pierced. As soon as you start to see God’s reality, miracles will begin to take place.
