STRATEGIC BIBLE PRAYERS AND INTERCESSION
- Prayer for Establishment of the Kingdom, Provisions, Forgiveness and Protection
Matthew 6:9-13 NIV
This, then, is how you should pray:
“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us today our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one.”
- Prayer For Wisdom Revelation And Power
Ephesians 1:17-21 NIV
“I keep asking that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you may know him better. I pray that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in his holy people, and his incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is the same as the mighty strength he exerted when he raised Christ from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power and dominion, and every name that is invoked, not only in the present age but also in the one to come.”
- Prayer for Being Rooted and Established In Love
Ephesians 3:14-19 NIV
“For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”
- Prayer for Leaders and Salvation of the Lost
1 Timothy 2:1-4 NIV
“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
- Prayer for the Blessing of Wealth in the Church
2 Corinthians 8:9 GNB
“You know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; rich as he was, he made himself poor for your sake, in order to make you rich by means of his poverty.”
- Intercede Against the Law of Degeneration
Jeremiah 2:21 – I had planted you like a choice vine of sound and reliable stock. How then did you turn against me into a corrupt, wild vine?
Prov. 27.23-24:– Be sure you know the condition of your flocks, give careful attention to your herds; for riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations.
- Intercede Against the Law of The World
1John.2.15-17: – Do not love the world or anything in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world-the cravings of sinful man, the lust of his eyes and the boasting of what he has and does–comes not from the Father but from the world. The world and its desires pass away, but the man who does the will of God lives forever.
Read 2 Tim.4.10

The men were amazed and asked, “What kind of man is this? Even the winds and the waves obey him!”

- a) The reality of human nature
- b) The reality of human error

- Intercede Against the Law of Nature
Ps.1.1-3:– Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
Ps.1.4:- Not so the wicked! They are like chaff that the wind blows away.
- Intercede Against the Law of the Devil
Acts.16.16-18:– Once when we were going to the place of prayer, we were met by a slave girl who had a spirit by which she predicted the future. She earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune telling.
This girl followed Paul and the rest of us, shouting, “These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved.”
She kept this up for many days. Finally Paul became so troubled that he turned around and said to the spirit, “In the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!” At that moment the spirit left her.
Eph.6.10-12:- Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
- Intercede Against the Law of Time

Eph.6.13:- Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
- Intercede Against the Law of Creeping Things
Gen.1.25-26:- God made the wild animals according to their kinds, the livestock according to their kinds, and all the creatures that move along the ground according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.”
Things that creep upon all churches:
- a) Deception (e.g the church of Europe)
- b) Wrong attitude (e.g laziness)
- c) Familiarity (e.g not appreciating the gift of God in your midst)
- d) Shifting priorities (becoming a health and educational organization instead of missionary activity)

Job.38.31-33:- “Can you bind the beautiful Pleiades? Can you loose the cords of Orion? Can you bring forth the constellations in their seasons or lead out the Bear with its cubs? Do you know the laws of the heavens? Can you set up God’s dominion over the earth?
