Sometimes in life, we are dealt so many blows unforeseen and seen that we feel like we are in a boxing match with an opponent we have no way of defeating. We try to stay grounded in the things of God yet our buttons are steadily being pushed that we thought were deleted from our character. And these buttons just keep working as we pray-repent-pray-repent in hopes that they will one day not work at all. Some of us get so angry we can’t see straight. Others are so discouraged we just want to throw in the towel and others just shake their heads in remorse begging the question (yours included) “Will I ever get this right?”

In search of a powerful prayer to remedy these maladies, I was blessed to come across this prayer. It may not work the first, second, or even the third time. Just be diligent and consistent in your sincerity and prayer because the word teaches us that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. (Hebrews 11:6)

Deliver us, Father, from the everyday attacks on our conscious, health, relationships, and beyond. From what we can see coming and would never expect, Please protect and deliver us from anything that threatens to throw us off Your course for our lives. Give us the strength to love seemingly unlovable people without compromising our character as Christians. Build confidence in us that is unstoppable and immovable but guard our hearts against pride. Deliver us from our distorted thoughts, sickness, debt, sadness, struggles, hunger, pain, fear, oppression, conflict, and unbelief, for we proclaim Your Peace over our lives through prayer, today. “Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.” Ephesians 6:10 Help us to put on Your armor, daily, Father. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

  1. Of course, being careful not to think that the “words” of a prayer are all that matters; the issue is if our hearts are in the prayer. As you know, there is no “magic” formula for prayer.

    • Never suggesting there is a magic formula, but I do know from firsthand experience that God does answer prayer. That is why I stated “Just be diligent and consistent in your sincerity. Sincerity being a keyword.” Thanks for you thoughtful comment and stopping by. Blessings and Peace!
