Spiritual Warfare

You don't have to be long in Christian ministry before you become aware of spiritual warfare in one form or another. Clearly whatever Christ is out to do there is one - the devil - who will want to undermine or confound His work. I personally always begin the day in prayer with my wife and we pray something along the lines of the following written by Francis MacNutt (See the source by clicking here.)

A Binding Prayer For Protection
In the name of Jesus Christ, by the power of His cross and blood, we bind the spirits, powers and forces of the earth, the underground, the air, the water, the fire, the netherworld and the satanic forces of nature.

We rebuke any curses, hexes, or spells sent against us and send them directly to Jesus for Him to deal with as He will. Lord, we ask You to bless our enemies by sending Your Holy Spirit to lead them to repentance.

We bind all interplay, interaction and communication of evil spirits.

We claim the protection of the shed blood of Jesus Christ over – (add people, places and things you want protected here).

Thank you for your protection, Lord. Amen.
