Before They Go To Bed (from Psalm 91)

Dear God, I thank You that You are my Heavenly Father. I thank You for being in my life and in my room and everywhere I go. I know that You are always with me and will never leave me. I commit myself to You and ask for Your protection. I trust You, and I know that if I’m ever afraid that I can always call upon You to rescue me. I ask You to protect my mind tonight when I am sleeping. Please bless our home, my parents, and protect them too. I love You. I pray this in the name of Jesus. Amen.


When Under Attack

A child may sense a presence in their room and be frightened. It is important to teach the child that when they are under attack, the best approach is for them to declare the truth of who they are in Christ. They should verbally declare something like:

“I am a child of God and the evil one cannot touch me.” (paraphrase of 1 John 5:18)

Often by simply speaking the name of Jesus, the presence will leave. They should know that Jesus has defeated Satan and will protect them from Satan’s attacks.

For General Living

Dear Heavenly Father, You are my Lord. I know that You love me and that You will never leave me nor forsake me. You are the only true and living God that is worthy of worship. You are kind and loving in all Your ways. I love You and I thank You that I am alive in Christ. I submit myself to You and ask You to fill me with Your Holy Spirit in order to live my life free from sin. I choose to believe the truth which You have given us in the Bible, and I reject all the lies of Satan. I refuse to be discouraged because You are a God of all hope. I believe that you will meet my needs as I seek to obey You. I believe that I can do everything You want me to do because Jesus is my strength.

I submit to God and I resist the devil. I stand against Satan and all his lies, and I command him and all his demons to leave me. I put on the armour of God by believing and speaking the truth. I believe that Jesus is my protection because He never sinned and He took my sin on Himself. I commit myself to be a peacemaker and take the truth of the Bible and use it against all of Satan’s dirty tricks.

I submit my body as a living sacrifice to God, and I am going to keep studying the truth so I can prove that what God wants me to do is good and perfect for me. I do all this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
