My Father in Heaven, I come to you in the Precious Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ.  Today, I submit myself to You and Your will for my life.  I ask Father that You will forgive me for any un-confessed sin and mistakes in my life according to your promise in 1 John 1:9, “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”  I want nothing in my life to hinder Your answering this prayer for my children.  Thank You, Father, for granting to me the privilege of interceding for them.  How great and awesome You are!

Father, I come to You on behalf of my children.  They do not realize that they’re in the middle of a spiritual battle.  I believe that the powers of darkness, Satan’s evil angels have an influence in their lives.  Jesus promised His followers authority over Satan and his evil angels in Mark 16:17, “And these signs will accompany those who believe: In My name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues.” I want to claim that authority right now in the event that it is demons that are harassing, and trying to steal my children’s life.

Demons and forces of darkness, In the Name of Jesus Christ, I command that you take your hands off my children and get out of their lives.  I demand that you stop interfering with them and that you stop any further communication with them.  I claim my children for Jesus Christ and plead the merits of His precious blood to cover them until they can claim it for themselves.  In Jesus’ mighty name I bind and cast you where Jesus wants you to go.

Father, I ask that You back up this authority with the power of your Holy Spirit and angels that excel in power and strength.  I commit my children into Your hands according to your promise in 2 Timothy 1:12, “That is why I am suffering as I am. Yet I am not ashamed, because I know whom I have believed, and am convinced that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him for that day.”

Also, Father, bind my children with cords of Christ’s blood, hedge them in so that no evil can prevail in their lives.  If there is anyone influencing their lives negatively or that Satan is using to bring hopelessness into their lives, I urge you to turn them away immediately.

I thank you Father for making all the resources of Heaven available to me for my children, and providing a wedge of protection around them.  I thank you for loving them and providing for them in their time of crisis.  Father, I pray that as I continue to call them up to Heaven that you will intercede on their behalf and answer my prayers.  I thank you for hearing and answering this prayer, because I ask it in the precious Name of Jesus Christ.  Amen.
