Prayer for Power over My Enemies

Dear Lord, You are my shield and my exceedingly great reward. Since I am Abraham’s seed through faith in Christ, I possess the gate of my enemies. (Galatians 3:14, 29, Genesis 22:17) I belong to the Church of the Lord Jesus Christ. The gates of hell cannot prevail against me. (Matthew 16:18) Your Word makes me wiser than my enemies. You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. Deliver me from those who fight against me. Cause them to be at peace with me, and save me from the hand of all who hate me, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
