To Release the Power of the Blood
(From the book Prayers I, by Dr. Mary Craig)
Your Word says, "If we say we have no sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, You are faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make You a liar, and Your word is not in us (1 John 1: 8-10). You also say that all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Through faith in Jesus Christ for all those who believe we are being justified as a gift by Your grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus; whom you, God, displayed publicly as a propitiation (substitute) in Jesus' blood through faith to declare and demonstrate His righteousness, because in Your forbearance, God, You passed over the sins previously committed. You are the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus (Romans 3:22-26). I know that God is light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with You and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; but if we walk in the light as You Yourself are in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Your Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1:5-7).
I apply the blood of Jesus, the blood of the Lamb, to me, my home, my possessions and assets everywhere, to my whole past and present and future and to........, declaring that You demonstrated Your own love toward me in that while I was yet a sinner, Christ died for me. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, I shall be saved from the wrath of God through Him, and I am saved by His life and receive the reconciliation (Romans 5:8 11). I confess my sins, and ask You to search me now .........
You purchased me with your own blood, Lord Jesus. You obtained for me eternal redemption and so how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without blemish to God, cleanse my conscience from dead works to serve You, the Living God? All things are cleansed with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness (Heb. 9:14,22). There is peace through the blood of His (Jesus') cross whether things on earth or things in heaven (Col. 1:20). Jesus has rendered the devil powerless (Heb. 2:14). No plague will befall me to destroy me, no destroyer will come in to my house to smite me (Ex. 12:13, Ex. 29:37). The blood covers me as a tabernacle and vessel of ministry (Heb. 9:21). Jesus loves me and released me from my sins by His blood and He has made me to be a kingdom (king) and priest to His God and Father; to Him be the glory and dominion forever (Rev. 1:5,6).
I wash my robes and am made white in the blood of the Lamb (Rev. 7:14). I am redeemed (1 Peter 1:17-19). When the kindness of God my Savior and His love for mankind appeared, He saved me, not on the basis of deeds which I have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out upon me richly through Jesus Christ my Savior, that being justified by His grace I might be made an heir according to the hope of eternal life (Titus 3:4-8).
I overcome satan by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of the testimony and I love not my life even unto the end. The accuser is cast down (Rev. 12:10,11). I am loosed from my sins and from the effects of the sins of others by the blood of Jesus as I am forgiven and forgive others, releasing them and my circumstance to God. I am a child of the King of kings and Lord of lords. The Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty (2 Cor. 3:17). Jesus is the High Priest of this my confession of faith in His atoning and cleansing blood. Therefore, I come boldly to the throne of GRACE to obtain mercy and to find grace and favor in time of need (Heb. 4:16).
I present my petitions and supplications....
In Jesus' Name, Amen.
