United We StandCreating a Prayer Shield and Strategies for Breakthrough
One of the top needs right now in the Body of Christ is serious and effective prayer. We are living at the end of the age, and there is a fierce conflict going on between light and darkness. Not only do we want to be assured we are protected, but also our loved ones. We know when soldiers go into battle, their aircraft, tanks, etc. are shielded from the enemy’s fire and in the very same way we as spiritual soldiers need to be shielded. We know that our protection comes from our covenant with our heavenly Father through His Son Jesus. But in His Word we are also instructed to utilize other things in our arsenal, including prayer and fasting, appropriating the blood of Jesus over our lives, and speaking/decreeing the Word of God.
Long ago in the history of Israel Nehemiah headed up the restoration of Jerusalem. The city had been burned with fire and there was only a remnant that remained. Nehemiah did not start by rebuilding the actual city however, but rather he first built a wall of protection all the way around it. It was a literal, tangible wall that enemies’ arrows and spears could not penetrate. In our day the wall of protection is spiritual in nature, but it is none-the-less real and tangible and contributes toward our well-being and safety. The wall of protection is built of numerous things, and (as stated above) among them prayer and fasting and decreeing the Word of God.
Watch your Goliath-Enemies Fall!
David – the shepherd boy who became King – approached the giant Goliath with not only a slingshot, but also with a faith-declaration that the God he served would give him the victory. His words of faith in God preceded the release of the stone, and the warrior-angels were activated to bring his word to pass. As victory was assured for David, so will it be for us, as we as God’s covenant children release our faith-declarations. Stir yourselves up in your most holy faith, decree your faith /His Word, and watch the giants fall!!
“Heavenly Father we lift up our hearts to you – as we make the following decrees. We release the prayers and decree blessings over ourselves and our families, and we make them in the all-powerful name of Jesus / Yeshua. (And for those who are fasting) We also lift up our fasts to you Father, asking that Your will and purpose in our lives be accelerated and established, and that all yokes and strongholds be utterly destroyed.
First search our hearts:
We come before You asking forgiveness for any and all sins we have committed. We repent of speaking negative or idle words about others or ourselves. And we forgive and release all those who have hurt us. If there are any hidden areas of bitterness or resentment in our hearts, we repent of it, and ask your forgiveness. We repent of any doubt and unbelief, and any lukewarmness. We honor and receive the blood of Jesus to cleanse us.
Second, we consecrate ourselves in surrender and obedience:
We realize that our part is to humble and offer ourselves as a living sacrifice to You heavenly Father. We choose to relinquish control, asking You to take charge and be Lord over every aspect of our lives. We understand that many of the promises of Your Word are conditional, and we desire to meet those conditions.
Third, we pray for and bless Israel:
We speak wholeness and protection to Jerusalem and to the land of Israel, and over its inhabitants. We pray that the eyes of the sons of Jacob would be opened to know Yeshua as their Messiah / Savior. We pray for our government, and for the other governments of the nations to honor Israel’s right to her God-given land so they will not be judged according to Joel 3:1-3. We pray for the nations of the earth, that they would forsake being goat nations, and turn to become sheep nations according to Matthew 25:31-46.
Fourth, we pray our government:
According to Your word we pray for those in authority in our nation, state and region, asking that You place Your choice of leaders into office so that righteousness would rule in our land. We decree Isaiah 9:6-7 that the government is upon Jesus’ shoulders and of its increase there will be no end. We decree Jesus/ Yeshua is The King of Kings and The Lord of Lords, Amen.”

We receive instruction, edification, guidance and revelation in Yeshua’s name.

On behalf of our ancestors/ bloodlines, we repent of and renounce all sins, transgressions and iniquities that would hinder. We ask that any curses would be exposed and we appropriate the truth of Galatians 3:13-14 for ourselves and families, that “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us, that we might receive the blessings of Abraham in Christ Jesus. And that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
We decree an opening of their spiritual eyes and ears, that they would behold the true Yeshua / Jesus as their personal Savior and Deliverer.

We bless them to give all of themselves to Him in complete surrender and consecration. We bless them to be water-baptized, filled with the Holy Spirit and receiving their prayer language. We bless them to be healed, delivered and restored fully to their heavenly Father and to their life’s callings and destiny. We bless them to be planted in the Body of Christ according to Father-God’s plan for them. We decree that generational blessings are activated and manifesting in their lives.”
Sealed with Communion — the Body & Blood of Yeshua / Jesus:
“We now take communion, the bread and the cup as we honor the atoning sacrifice of Yeshua / Jesus as the Lamb who was slain before the foundation of the world. We partake of His body and blood, as He instructed us to do, according to John 6:51-56. As we receive true drink and true food we are abiding in Him and He is abiding in us. We receive the resurrection life that comes only from Him.”
