Derek Prince: “Someone asked us, “How do you protect yourself if you live anywhere in the Middle East or the Balkans, where people are always putting curses on ther people? How do you protect yourself?” There are many answers I could give, but here is just one thing that Ruth and I do every night;
“Isaiah 54:17 says this: “No weapon formed against you shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against you in judgement you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord and their righteousness is from Me, says the Lord.” The important statement is, “Our righteousness is from the Lord.” It is not our own righteousness; we would have nothing to stand on.
“So every night before we go to sleep Ruth and I make this declaration. It only takes two or three minutes.”
DECLARATION OF CONFIDENCE
IN GOD’S PROTECTION
No weapon that is formed against me shall
prosper and every tongue which rises against me in
judgement I do condemn. This is my heritage as a
servant of the Lord and my righteousness is from
You, O Lord of hosts.
If there are those who have been speaking or
praying against me, or seeking harm or evil to me,
or who have rejected me, I forgive them. Having
forgiven them, I bless them in the name of the
Now I declare, O Lord, that you and You alone
are my God and besides you there is no other – a
just God and a Saviour, the Father, the Son and the
Spirit – and I worship You!
I submit myself afresh to You today/tonight in
unreserved obedience. Having submitted to you,
Lord, I do as Your Word directs. I resist the devil:
all his pressures. His attacks, his deceptions, every
instrument or agent he would seek to use against me.
I do not submit! I resist him, drive him from me and
exclude him from me in the Name of Jesus.
Specifically I reject and repel:
Infirmity, pain, infection,
Inflammation, malignancies, allergies, viruses,
And every form of witchcraft.
Finally, Lord, I thank you that through the
sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, I have passed out
from under the curse and entered into the blessings of
Abraham whom You blessed in all things: **
Exaltation, health, reproductiveness,
Prosperity, victory, and God’s favour.
