How To Prepare For Your Time Of Prayer
Sometimes reading prayers from the heart can be very
If you can align your heart with Father God’s will and sincerely mean what you say you will see many things change quickly. Praying scripture means praying the heart of God.
The Bible says, “Again I say unto you, that if two of you shall agree on earth concerning anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them by My Father who is in Heaven.” Matthew 18:19
If we pray the heart of God in absolute agreement we can be sure Father hears from heaven. That is why I have written some of these prayers and ask that you use them in the 24 hour prayer time.
OUR FOCUS: THE LORD JESUS CHRIST
24 hour Prayer Points: Encountering Christ Jesus, releasing the blood of Jesus Christ, students taking exams, the persecuted church, plus optional prayers.
How To Use This Prayer Guide
Read through all the prayers to acquaint yourself with what you will ask God BEFORE your allotted time.
When your hour starts, pray and worship for approximately 10 minutes. RELAX in God’s presence. Listen to worship music. Invite the Holy Spirit to pray through you.
Read out loud the prayers one by one to God. Give God thanks for his answers.
Take your time. Don’t rush your hour of prayer. Listen to God more
Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge that there is only one true and living God, who exists as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I recognise Christ Jesus as the Son of the Living God, the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us. Jesus, You are worthy to receive glory and donor and power, for You have created all things and in You, all things have their being.
Father God, You have proven Your love for me, because, when I was still in sin and rebellion, Your Son, Jesus Christ, died for me. When I accepted You, Jesus, as my Savior, You forgave me all my sins and redeemed me from the kingdom of darkness, translating me to Your kingdom, and I am made right with God.
All charges that were against me have been nailed to the cross and cancelled, therefore the devil has nothing with which to accuse me.
Jesus, You came to set the captives free: You have all authority in and on the earth, and You have conquered and disarmed all evil principalities and powers. You, Jesus, made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.
In You, Jesus, I have authority over Satan and all his demons, and they are subject to me. Jesus, I am covered and protected by Your precious blood.
I declare that You, Jesus, are my Lord and my God. I come to You, Jesus, looking only to You as my deliverer and healer. You know all my special need and concerns. I renounce all counterfeit gifts and works of Satan in my life. I claim Your Word, which says, “All who call upon the name of the Lord, shall be set free.” I call on You now, Lord Jesus Christ, to set me free.
Father, I accept Your Word as my standard for righteousness and daily living. I will study Your Word and renew my mind by that living Word, because You say, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
I now take control of my thought life, and stand against Satan’s deceptions and lies by taking every thought captive in obedience to Christ. I choose to walk in the light and truth, because the truth will set me free.
I will use my spiritual weapons (the Word of God, the Blood, the Name of Jesus, praise and prayer), which are mighty in God to tear down all strongholds of the enemy in my life.
I stand strong in You, Lord Jesus Christ, and resist Satan and all his evil schemes. I bind and rebuke all evil spirits and powers of darkness that would seek to interfere with time of ministry, specifically, the spirits of doubt, deception, unbelief, confusion, mind control and fear.
I loose myself from your control. I take my position in Christ and command you, Satan, and all your demons to leave me now, in Jesus’ name.
I choose to give up all attempts to run my own life, putting no confidence in the flesh, and I now submit to You, Father, and Your servant who is ministering to me. I trust myself to Your care, Lord Jesus Christ, as much as I can at this time.
Dear Holy Spirit, I ask You to help me in this time of prayer and inward looking. I choose to humble myself and share whatever God reveals to me (with safe, appropriate persons that God designates).
Holy Spirit, I ask you to guide me to all truth (to receive it), empower me to live above sin, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise you.
Lord, I thank you because you are just; I will sing praise to your name, Lord Most High.
you for you have filled me with joy.
Lord, You live! Praise to my Rock! May the God of my salvation be exalted!
I praise You, Father God, for what you have promised. I trust You, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?
I sing your praises because my heart is confident in you.
O God, I sing Your praises. You are my refuge, the God who shows me unfailing love.
Everything on earth will worship you; they will sing your praises, shouting your name in glorious songs. I praise you because you did not ignore my prayers or withdraw your unfailing love from me.
Praise the Lord; praise God our saviour! For each day he carries us in his arms.
Praise the Lord! I give thanks to You Lord, for You are good! Your faithful love endures forever.
Dear heavenly Father thank You for Your amazing grace and perfect peace which You supply in such abundance, to all those who are called by Your name. Help me to take to heart all the truths that are contained in Your Word, and help me to apply it in my life - to Your praise and glory, in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
Lord you are my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
You let me rest in green meadows;
You lead me beside peaceful streams.
You renew my strength.
You guide me along right paths, bringing honour to your name.
Even when I walk through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies.
You honour me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.
Lord, You are a shield around me; you are my glory, the one who holds my head high.
I cried out to you, Lord,
and You answered me from Your holy mountain. I lay down and slept, yet I woke up in safety, for you were watching over me.
I am not afraid of ten thousand enemies who surround me on every side…Victory comes from you, O Lord. Bless my family, friends and church.
Dear heavenly Father, I acknowledge Your presence in this room and my life. You are the only omniscient (all-knowing), omnipotent (all-powerful), and omnipresent (always- present) God.
I am dependent upon You, for apart from Christ I can do nothing. I stand in the truth that all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to the resurrected Christ, and because I am in Christ I share that authority in order to make disciples and set captives free.
I ask You to fill me with Your Holy Spirit and lead me into all truth. I pray for Your complete protection and ask for Your guidance. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
From Steps to Freedom in Christ, The Bondage Breaker by Neil T Anderson pp187-212
Father, I give thanks to you for your unfailing love and your wonderful deeds for mankind for you satisfy the thirsty and fill the hungry with good things. Amen
You are a great God the King above all gods. I give thanks to you my LORD, for you are good to me and your love endures forever. Amen
I bless the Lord: O Lord my God, how great you are! You are robed with honour and with majesty and light!
You stretched out the starry curtain of the heavens, and hollowed out the surface of the earth to form the seas.
The clouds are your chariots. You ride upon the wings of the wind. The angels are your messengers -servants of fire!
I will sing to You, Lord as long as I live. I will praise You to my last breath!
May you be pleased by all these thoughts about you, for you are the source of all my joy. Hallelujah!
I give thanks and praise to You, O Lord, for you are good!
[Now give God thanks for whatever comes to your mind]
Let Us Encounter More Deeply The Messiah
Dear Lord, I thank You for the power of forgiveness, and I choose to forgive everyone who has hurt me.
Help me set [name anyone who has offended you] free and release them to You [Romans 12:19]. Help me bless those who have hurt me [Romans 12:14].
Help me walk in righteousness, peace, and joy, demonstrating Your life here on earth.
I choose to be kind and compassionate, forgiving others, just as You forgave me [Ephesians 4:32]. In Jesus’ name, Amen
Father, today I ask forgiveness of all the negative and harmful words I have spoken about myself. I do not want to abuse myself in such a way again.
Transform my thoughts and let me understand how marvellously you made me. Change my habits so I use my tongue to speak hope and favour upon my life. In Jesus' name.
1 John 1:9 - If I confess my sins, you are faithful and just and will forgive me of my sins and purify me from all unrighteousness. Thank you.
John 14:6-Jesus, you are the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through you. I enter into your presence this hour to experience a fresh touch from Father God.
John 6:50-71-Jesus you are the bread that came down from heaven. Be my living bread. I choose to embrace your words to eat your flesh and drink your blood to have your eternal life within me.
Draw me closer to you. You have the words of eternal life, increase my passion for you because you are the Holy One of God.
John 1:1, Hebrews 1:3-Jesus, You are the Word that was there in the beginning. You are God, the living Word.
You are the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and you uphold the universe by the word of your power.
After making purification for our sins, you sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.
I therefore, acknowledge your holy presence and exalt you with all my being. Please reveal more clearly your role in my life.
I pray that my love for you will overflow more and more, and that I will keep on growing in knowledge and understanding.
My life is busy and sometimes I forget what really counts. Give me understanding and show me what really matters, so that I live a pure and blameless life until the day of your return.
Fill me with the fruit of your salvation—the righteous character you produce in my life —for this will bring much glory and praise to God. Amen.
Jesus, thank you for giving to me your attitude. I know I am far from being fully mature in my thoughts but I want the mind of Christ in everything I do. Though you are God you did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, you gave up your divine privileges, you took the humble position of a slave and was born as a human being.
When you appeared in human form you humbled yourself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on a cross for me!
Therefore, God elevated you to the place of highest honour and gave you the name above all other names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue declare that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
I confess you are my Lord and Saviour. Amen.
Jesus, Help me to understand that God is working in me, giving me the desire and the power to do what pleases him. I want to obey you at all times and do everything without complaining and arguing, so that no one can criticise me.
You command me to live a clean and innocent life as a child of God, shining like a bright light in a world full of crooked and perverse people.
I need your help to hold firmly to the word of life; so, on the day of Christ’s return, I will be proud that I did not run the race in vain and that my work was not useless. Amen.
But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling me.
Making Christ Everything
Jesus, whatever gains I have made in life I now consider loss for your sake because I want to know you as Lord.
Nothing compares to you. All I need is you. I want to know the power of your resurrection and participate in your suffering.
My righteousness is through faith in you alone and not from keeping rules and doing religious things.
Jesus help me to press toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me to in Christ Jesus.
Getting Closer To Him!
Father God you have rescued me from the dominion of darkness and brought me into the kingdom of the Son you love, and in whom I have redemption and the forgiveness of sins.
Jesus, you are the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.
For in you all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through you and for you. You are before all things, and in you all things hold together. That includes my life!
I invite you now to invade the areas of my life I have kept hidden from you and fill be with the knowledge of God's will and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that I may live a life worthy of the Lord and please him in every way. I declare my life to be productive as I grow in the knowledge of God. Amen
Jesus, since the day I received you as Lord, I have continued to live for you. Establish and build me up. Strengthen my faith and cause me to overflow with thankfulness every day of my life. Amen.
I have been raised with Christ, and I set my heart on things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Jesus, set my mind on things above, and not on earthly things. For you died, and my life is now hidden with you in God.
Let me feel the joy of knowing Christ, who is my life, will appear, and I will appear with him in glory.
But I need you to put to death, whatever belongs to my earthly nature: sexual immorality, impurity, lust, evil desires and greed, which is idolatry. Because of these, the wrath of God is coming.
I used to walk in these ways, But now I rid myself of all such things as these. I give you my anger, rage, malice, slander, and all filthy language from my lips.
And if you are knocking at the door of my heart , I open the door right now and I invite you to fellowship with me. Amen
Jesus, eternal life is intimately knowing you, the only true God whom God has sent. I believe you have given me life in your name. Amen
Rom 6:11, Rom 8:1
Christ Jesus, I consider myself to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through you. There is no more condemnation or guilt because of sin in my life. You have made me free. Thank you. Amen
Asking Jesus to get closer to us
2 Cor 13:14
Lord, grant us all with your favour and grace during and after this time of prayer. Surround us all with your love and intensify our communion with the Holy Spirit. Amen

Lord Jesus Christ release to us grace and peace that comes from God the Father when we gather to worship, pray and eat together as the family of God. Amen
Jesus Christ, I agree that You are the Son of God and the only door to eternal life.
I believe that You died for my sins on the cross 2000 years ago and rose from the dead by the power of Your Holy Spirit.
That same Holy Spirit power is greater than all other powers and has already defeated Satan and his demons on the cross 2000 years ago.
Jesus, I renounce all arrogance, self-sufficiency and pride, which was the downfall of Satan.
I have nothing and am nothing, except in You my hiding place. Jesus, I confess all my sins, especially….(confess your sins here)
Thank you again for forgiving me of all my sins.
Releasing the Blood of Christ
Father, your word says, “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that makes an atonement for the soul…. For it is the life of all flesh…”
I understand that without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanse us from all sin.
You have loved us and washed us from sins in your own blood. We will always overcome the enemy by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of our testimony.
Your blood has made it possible for us to enter badly into the most holy place and to draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience. Thank you. Amen.
Father, I plead the Blood of Jesus over my family and church. I cover my body, mind, and emotions and spirit with the Blood of Jesus. We tear down the strongholds of the devil against our mind, and we surrender our thoughts to Your Holy Spirit.
We plead the Blood of Jesus against physical, mental and emotional abuse.
We plead the Blood of Jesus against any diseases, viruses or illnesses that would try to overtake us and I release the healing virtue of Jesus Christ into our bodies.
We curse at the root every attack upon our health. Yahweh rofe’ekha, the LORD who heals us has healed us and keeps us in perfect health all the days of our lives.
We plead the Blood of Jesus against calamities, catastrophes and any hidden dangers that would try to come against us.
Through the Blood of Jesus, I have been saved out of the hands of the devil. Amen
We release the voice of the blood against demons and evil spirits that would accuse and condemn us in Jesus Name. (Hebrews 12:24) Amen.
The blood of Christ & Financial debt
I plead the Blood of Jesus against all of our debts. In the name of Jesus and through the power of His Blood, We break satan’s hold on our resources. He has no authority over our financial resources. Jesus has broken the bondage of debt off of our lives, and He has set us free. Therefore, we stand firm and will not be trapped and submit again to a yoke of slavery.
OBJECTIONS TO SATAN’S ILLEGAL ACTIVITIES
Father, we come boldly to the court of heaven in the Name of Jesus Christ.
We object and challenge Satans legal right to operate against us based on my right standing with You.
We are firmly in the bloodline of Yeshua, which means that any and all operations that were legal in my natural family bloodline is no longer permitted in the bloodline of Yeshua
Satan CANNOT LEGALLY attack me in (name the area of your life that you struggle with) ___________ Because it has been renounced in Jesus Name.
I COMMAND YOU SATAN, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH TO CEASE ALL EVIL WORK AGAINST ME USING LEGALITIES IN MY OLD BLOODLINE!
IT IS NO LONGER VALID! YOU ARE OPERATING ILLEGALLY AND YOU HAVE TO FLEE BECAUSE I RESIST YOU NOW IN JESUS’ NAME! Amen
Praise God for his love
Praise God for his protection
Praise God for His power

Prayer for Single People
Father, reveal as much of yourself to me as possible while I’m still single. Satisfy me so
fully now that I never look to anyone else to make me happy.
Tell the world about yourself through my joy and freedom in singleness. Give me faith to trust you even when I walk through
pain and disappointment alone. Send me the people I need to follow you.
Surround me with people who love me, and who love you more than they love me, especially while I would otherwise live alone. Reveal things about me to me through their eyes, their faith and maturity, and their words. Make me a healthier, more effective member of the local church. Give me a deep, abiding, and growing desire to serve her in whatever ways I can.

Let patience, selflessness, and humility mark every relationship — every date, every conversation, every step forward or backward.
In every step of my pursuit of marriage, make it clear that you are God, and I am yours.
