PRAYER GUIDE, “PURGING THE OLD LEAVEN,” 09.04.19
The following is a framework for you to follow. Please fill in with complete honesty whatever applies to you/your life.
“The word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Heb.4:12); therefore I CUT OFF & CIRCUMCISE my heart, mind & body of every fowl unclean, defiling, thought, desire, wrong agreement, or activity I have ever entered into (ungodly soul ties, curses, etc. – list whatever applies to you)
Just as Jesus/Yeshua taught His disciples to speak to the mountains (Mk.11:23,24), I speak to the mountains of (please list your own mountains, whether they be fear, sexual lust, perversion, greed, rage, bitterness, etc.) & COMMAND them to “GO!”
By an act of will, I determine with all of my mind and all of my heart to daily put the old leaven of sinful patterns, behaviour, thoughts, desires (list again what comes to you) to death “continually counting myself both dead to sin and alive to You, Father, in Messiah Yeshua . . . . I will not let sin rule in my mortal body any longer . . . . I will not keep yielding my body parts to sin as tools of wickedness; but will yield myself to You, Lord, as those alive from the dead, and my body parts as tools of righteousness to You” (Rom.6:11-13), crucifying my flesh “by the power of the Holy Spirit” (Rom.8:13).
Make me to walk 24/7 with the whole armour of God “so I can stand against the wiles of the devil” (Eph.6:11,13). I thank You, Jesus/Yeshua, that by Your authority & my alignment with You, I can “trample upon serpents and scorpions (demonic entities), and over all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you” (Lk.10:19). I trample now, on all lying, cursing, inherited spirits, blinding, mocking, tempting, tormenting, lusting, deceiving, defiling (the list is endless; please fill in whatever Holy Spirit shows you) spirits, put the FIRE OF GOD against all the old leaven/sin/curses in my life, for You, Lord “are a consuming fire”(Deut.4:24), because I am speaking Your Words, therefore You will release Your power through my words, and put Your Fire against all the Enemy’s dirty works in my life (Jer.23:29; Jer.5:14). And I thank You, Lord, for Your all-powerful Word, and that because I am Yours, I can speak it in faith (Eph.6:17).
I pledge to no longer simply be a “hearer only” but a “doer of the word, no longer deluding myself” (James 1:22). I want to purge the old leaven, get rid of ALL my old sinful ways and weaknesses, be a true overcomer, walking in freedom and victory; for “They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives even in the face of death” (Rev.12:11). Make me to walk in daily surrender so I can be one of those walking in freedom from bondage. In Jesus/Yeshua’s Holy Name. Amen.
