Overcoming Intimidation Prayer
Priscilla Van Sutphin
One of the things we have a lot of problems with when we have grown up with alot of control , is overcoming intimidating spirits. One of the goals of a jezebel spirit which is so prevelant in the church and world today is to intimidate you to do what she wants.(the spirit - as the bible says we war not against flesh and blood, but powers, and principalities, and spiritual wickedness in high places. ) To yield to intimidation of man is to bow to the fear of man and idolatry to man.
Father, I come to you in the name of Jesus, confessing that intimidation has caused me to sin. I ask your forgiveness for thinking of myself as inferior, for I am created in Your image, and I am Your workmanship. Jesus said the kingdom of God is within me. Therefore the power that raised Jesus from the dead is in me and causes me to face life with hope and divine strength. Your word says, "The Lord God of Israel gives strength and power to His people ". So Lord I ask you to give me Your grace, Your strength, Your power and wisdom to stand up in the face of intimidating spirits, and to speak what you would have me speak. I bind the roots of intimidation in my life in the name of Jesus. And I renounce fear of intimidation and control, domination and witchcraft, in the name of Jesus. I ask You Father to root out of my life and heal the part of my heart that still reacts in intimidation that I could be and do all that You want me to be and do for Your kingdom. I ask you to heal my inner man.
Father....show me any vows or pronouncements I made that have interfered with my ability to stand up to these spirits, that I may break them and renounce all fear, in Jesus name.
You said You would never leave me or forsake me, and that if You are for me, then who can be against me. You are my shield, my high tower to whom I can run. You are the Rock upon which I stand. Nothing can separate me from the Love of God which is in Christ Jesus. Father pour out Your love on me right now, Your manifest love , to help me overcome my fear. Forgive me for giving in to these spirits Lord....and make me whole. No weapon formed against me shall prosper. Greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. You have not given me a spirit fear, but of power, love and a sound mind, whereby I can cry out Abba, Father !
Habakkuk 3:19 (amp) says, The Lord God is my Strngth, my personal Bravery, and my invincible army; He makes my feet like hind's feet and will make me to walk [ not to stand still in terror, but to walk ] and make spiritual progress on my hight places [of trouble, suffering, or responsibility] ! So Father, I am standing on Your promise to be my Strength, and to help me to overcome all that has held me back from being all that You want for me to be, and all that You have wanted for me to do.
Thank you Lord that Your word says that if we confess our sins, that You are Faithful and Just to forgive them. I forgive myself as well and refuse to hold on to guilt associated with intimidation. I renounce all the works of the enemy and ask You to pour out Your discernment in me when I am falling into the trap of intimidation again, and that You would empower me to avoid this temptation, and to depend on You for what to speak when
I am confronted in this way again. In Jesus mighty Name, I pray. Amen
One thing that has helped me in the past to learn scripture, is to write them on index cards and repeat the ones I want to pray daily over me, my son, or other people in my family, or the lost. I have a problem with memorizing so I have to do things like that to help...But I have found that when the Holy Spirit quickens something to my mind ABOUT the scriptures that then I remember it better. And the Holy Spirit often in prayer will help you to remember something to pray that you have read in scripture...or take you to a scripture that will help.
You can put your own name in there...or that of your husband, wife, or children, etc. and His word never comes back unanswered. Now I have known people who twist the scriptures to pray their will...this is witchcraft, of the charasmatic kind. God does not honor such prayer...but is grieved by it.
Praying against jezebel oppression:
Much contoversy has been shouted about in saying, never come against jezebel ! Well if you don't, you will live with oppression, death, and destruction at your door. It is true that any prayer in concert with another Christian is more effective. One can set a thousand to flight and two can set ten thousand to flight it says in Psalm 91. In the war which is at hand in the church and the world, it is important to have agreeing prayer. We are our brother's keeper. The best is when we pray together as families.
Satan particularly hates this...so he has been busy through witchcraft causing division.
Prayer against jezebel is similar to prayer against witchcraft, as witchcraft control is one of the strongholds of jezebel, along with intimidation, manipulation, greed, covetousness, lust (for power, and money, and sometimes of a sexual nature). Competition and vengeance, bitterness and jealousy are also a part. Her assignments always seem to be accompanied by head pressure, and pain especially in the back of the neck. Also top of the head pressure that makes it feel like a migraine is the presence of death and destruction. Some people get chest pain...which is a
word of knowledge for the spirit of MURDER.
The spirit doesn't want just to upset you; satan comes but to KILL, steal and destroy you. Oftentimes I have been without prayer partners... and it is a painful ordeal to fight this one alone...as there is often in us... some of her...in the nature of fear or control issues that have not been healed. So it is WISDOM to get someone else to pray with you when you are under her attack ! Pride is also at the root of jezebel, thinking she/or he knows better what is good for you, while all the time wanting your anointing or money, or husband... whatever. She/he is very self-focused. I know because I was raised with it....and became what I judged. It has taken so much time to get healed due to the abuse in my childhood, and my own wanting to run away from pain.
I am a great believer in, and minister of inner healing, and I recommend highly that if you feel there is still bitterness, or lack of healing in your own heart...you must get healed. If you were abused, no matter what kind it was, if it was at the hand of witchcraft and satanism, or just mental, emotional, or neglectful kind of abuse, or perfectionism.... you need to forgive those who have offended you. And you cannot fully forgive without inner healing. God has to heal your INNER man...your soul...from all the wounds. There is no "Quick zap"...except when HE comes in revival kind of power to touch you. We have seen people receive so much healing doing rug time on the floor...being spiritually operated on by the Holy Spirit....and they would say...God showed me all the things I went through in childhood and young adulthood, and He showed me that He was with me, and He has healed me. It is so wonderful when He touches you this way. But if you are not in a revival church...God can still touch you wherever you are at. All you have to do is ask and believe He will. If you want personal prayer...email me and I will pray for you. Distance is no barrier to God. Don't be afraid to ask for prayer from other intercessors in your church.
Father, in the name of Jesus, I submit to You and all authority under You. I refuse to walk in rebellion. I renounce all rebellion and control in my life. I ask Your forgiveness for allowing these things to rule in my life. Father forgive me for the times I have avoided YOU...Who are the Healer of my soul. Come to me NOW Holy Spirit; would You come and destroy the yoke of destruction from jezebel that has been attacking me (and my family). Come O Holy One of Israel...I thank you that it is Your Righteousness alone that makes me able to enter into Your throne of grace with boldness now Father. I repent of all my sins. I ask for Your warring angels to come now and surround me. I ask You to make Your face to shine upon me and mine. I break the power of death, murder and destruction in Jesus name. Jesus alone holds the keys to death and hell.
He alone decides my fate. I rebuke you death and destruction. I rebuke you murder and jezebel, in Jesus name. Father, I ask you to cut off the tentacles of jezebel now, in the name of Jesus. I submit and commit myself into Your hands Father, for You have said You will fight for me....Lord Jesus, You are the commander of the armies of God...so I ask you to come....Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, come...come and rescue me (us) Lord ! Be my Shepherd, Jehovah Raah !
For You are my God. You are My High Tower, the Defender of the Lame ! You alone are the Lover of my soul, and no force in heaven, hell, or this earth can withstand the blade of Righteousness You hold in Your hand. I worship You Lord, I thank you for this attack. I thank you for the fellowship of Your sufferings. Let Your Kingdom come Lord, and Your will alone, be done on earth as it is in heaven, in my life and in the life of my family. I cancel all the assignments from ungodly prayers of wicked men and women aimed at me or my family in the name of Jesus. The Lord God Almighty rules and reigns over this house and over my family, over our health, over our finances and relationships. We thank You Lord for when we call, You always listen.
We thank You, for your mighty angels are now being dispersed to drive off the attack of the enemy and his forces. Fine tune our discernment Lord, so that we will be more aware when we are under the attack of the enemy. Father....we lift up to You those who are against us, and we ask that you would bless them, especially with healing and deliverance, that they could be free from the influences of jezebel or witchcraft, and all the strategies of satan to destroy them. I choose to forgive Father, those who hate me (us). Rip the veil of blindness that is over their eyes Father...so they could be drawn by Your Holy Spirit to truth, and Him Who is the TRUTH. Forgive them father. Break their chains and set them free. Show them Your manifest LOVE, in Jesus Name.
