Prayer For Anointing

It is time, O God, for Thee to work, for the enemy has entered into Thy pasture, and the sheep are torn and scattered. False shepherds abound who deny the danger and laugh at the perils, which surround Thy flock. Lord Jesus, I come to Thee for spiritual preparation. Lay Thy hand upon me; anoint me with the oil of the New Testament prophet. Save me from the error of judging a church by its size, its popularity, or the amount of its yearly offering. Help me to remember that I am a prophet, not a promoter, not a religious manager. Let me never become a slave to crowds. Heal my soul of carnal ambitions and deliver me from the itch for publicity. Lay Thy terror upon me, O God, and drive me to the place of prayer, where I may wrestle with principalities and powers and the rulers of the darkness of this world. Teach me self-discipline, that I may be a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

Verse

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. Ephesians 6:11

Thought

Lay Thy terror upon me, O God, and drive me to the place of prayer, where I may wrestle with principalities and powers and the rulers of the darkness of this world.

Prayer

Lord, thank You for providing Your armor that I can stand firm against the principalities and powers and rulers of darkness of this world. Empower me to live in complete surrender to You.
