A Guided Prayer for a Loved One in Trouble

A Guided Prayer for a Loved One in Trouble

“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God...” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5 NKJV

God, I come before you with my loved one. The enemy is fighting hard to take them down, but I come to you in faith, believing that the weapons you have given me as your child enable me to stand against the dark forces coming against them. I believe in your saving power.

Though I walk in the flesh, I will not fight this battle for my loved one in the flesh. I take up the spiritual weapons that are mighty to pull down strongholds, powerful to cast down arguments and able to bring low every high thing that would challenge who Jesus is in my loved one’s life.

Lord, will you tear down the strongholds of wickedness that would try to destroy them and stop the activity of the enemy in their lives. Silence the voices of the enemy that would challenge the authority of the word of God and the name of Jesus Christ in their heart, their mind, their body and their household.

In the name of Jesus, I ask you to break the grip of the enemy on their lives and destroy the chains that hold them in darkness.

I speak peace. I declare salvation. I pronounce rescue in my loved one’s life, in Jesus’ name.

And I pray, Father God, that you would draw them to yourself. I pray their heart would soften to your voice and respond to your presence. I pray that the word of God that has been planted in their lives would bear good fruit.

Save now, Lᴏʀᴅ!

  • I thank you for your saving grace coming to my loved one right now, no matter where they are.
  • I praise you for their rescue.
  • I stand in faith that mountains are moving in their lives today, clearing the way for them to embrace you as Lord and Savior.

In Jesus name, amen.
