“Father God, right now, we go into the room of redemption and cleanse ourselves in the blood of Jesus. We cover ourselves—from the top of our heads to the bottom of our feet—in Your redeeming blood. We thank You for the belt of truth. Let everything we speak be in alignment with Your Word, not man’s opinion. Your Word is the spirit of life.

“We put on the shoes of peace, asking that where our feet tread, You will give us every place, according to Your loving kindness. We put on the ephod, the breastplate of righteousness, and decree our righteousness and authority come from You. Messiah, You are our hope and glory. 

“We put on the helmet of salvation and take up the shield of faith that quenches every fiery dart from the enemy. We take the sword of the Spirit into Your war room court, decreeing and breaking every generational curse of the spirit of distrust.”

Put God into remembrance of His Word…

“Father God, we come to You, put You into remembrance of Your Word, according to Isaiah 43:26. Let us contend together. Let the spirit of distrust be uprooted and torn down. Lord God, we ask that it not just be removed from the spirit but cleansed from our minds. We ask that it is erased from our memories. We trust in the mighty name of Yeshua.”
