Prayer for the New Year 2012
Dear Heavenly Father,
I thank you for your covenant promise of protection. Right now, I call upon the covenant I have with you and plead the blood of Jesus over my husband, my children, and myself. Angels, I charge you to watch over my family to protect us, for we are walking in the footsteps of Jesus. Go before us, behind us, beside us, and all the way around us. Keep us from calamity, evil, and misfortune. (Name all your family members to the Lord.)
No evil will befall my family in the name of Jesus! No weapon formed against them will prosper, and every lying tongue that rises up against them I do condemn, for this is my heritage as a servant of the Lord.
I thank you, Father, that great is the peace of my children. Their righteousness is of you. They do not walk in their own righteousness, but in your righteousness by the blood of Jesus. I thank you for that, Lord. They will not get off track in life, none of their steps shall slide for you Holy Spirit will guide them every step of the way. Father, your Word says that we, Your sheep, know your voice. It ways you will show us things to come. It says the voice of the spirit will come to us and say, "This is the way, walk in it". I stand on these promises, Lord, and ask that you teach us to hear Your voice. Help us to recognize when you are speaking to us, and we will obey.
Now I stand in Your holy of holies and open my spirit to receive the wisdom you have afforded me. I put myself in a position to hear and receive instruction from You. I enter the secret place of the Most High by the blood of the Lamb, and I purpose to live my life in your presence.
I thank you that you are faithful to Your word. Father, I thank you that what you say is certain and sure. When you say You will deliver us, we can rely on that promise. So right now I receive your supernatural protection and deliverance for my family and me in Jesus' Name.
