Prayer ~ Calling Down the Light of Heaven
“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:14-16).
“Almighty God, I give you all the glory and praise for Your loving-kindness. You are so gracious and full of mercy to me. You sent your Son so that He would be my righteousness for my righteousness is but filthy rages (Isaiah 64:6). He is my light and my salvation (Psalm 27:1). Thank you Lord, for I am now clothed in a robe of righteousness (Isaiah 61:10).
Lord, the Word tells me, if I walk in the light, as you are in the light, I have fellowship with one another, and your blood cleanses me from all sin (1st John 1:7). Thank you Lord for you are my deliverer (Psalm 140).
I put on the armor of light with gratitude for I am a child of the light” (1st Thessalonians 5:5). Thank you Father God.
Father, the Word tells me, “the Gospel is veiled to those who are perishing” because “the god of this world has blinded their minds, keeping them from seeing the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God” (2nd Corinthians 4:1-6).
Father God I earnestly pray that the light of eternal Glory, the light that overcomes darkness shine down upon (person’s name), dispelling the oppressive god of this world, keeping them from hearing the gospel. I say this believing that the light will shine 24/7 upon them, driving the demonic oppression away, allowing their ears to be open to the glory of Christ.
Please, give me the words to speak to them when the Spirit opens a conversation at His appointed time. Thank you Lord for sending the Spirit, my helper and counsel (John 15:26, 16:13 & 1st Corinthians 12:11).
In the might name of Jesus, let the heavenly light of glory shine down, filling (name the home, office, church or classroom), where my beloved (family member, co-worker, or friend) resides so that they may experience peace of mind and soul, opening that specific place to the work of the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 1:17).
I rebuke the workers of darkness in the name of Jesus. The Word says, “but if anyone who follows the true way comes to the light. Then the light will show that whatever they have done was done through God” (John 3:16-21). I pray that they (name of person) comes to the light; For God said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ has shone in my heart, giving me the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 4:1-6).
Thank you Lord.
In Jesus name I pray, amen”
