Proud Spirit

At the name of Jesus every knee shall bow.


NOTE: Sometimes we will become self-reliant and do things our way. In this condition, we will not experience righteousness, peace and joy. Also, this sets us up for spiritual attacks by the powers of darkness.

(To be prayed out loud)

Dear Heavenly Father, Your word says that a proud and arrogant attitude goes before stumbling. I know that You hate a proud or arrogant spirit. I want to please You, Father. I do not want to stumble or bring trouble on myself and others. I know at times, in action and attitude, I have had a proud spirit. Because of my woundedness, I believed I knew what was best for me. In the past, I tried to run my life by my own power and resources. I have looked to my own intellect, ability and strength to solve my problems. Jesus, I have not denied myself, picked up my cross daily and followed You. Your word tells me that it is not by might, nor by power, but by Your Spirit that the victory comes. I have opened the door and given Satan a place in my life because of this spirit of pride.

I now repent of this pride. I also renounce this effort to be self-sufficient and not trusting or coming to You, Heavenly Father. I now come to You, humbling myself, and put my trust in Your mercy and love. It is Your kindness that has led me to repentance. I now cancel all ground or openings to Satan in my life. I proclaim that I am covered with the Blood of Jesus.* I proclaim that you, Satan, have no part in me or power over me. I am a child of God and the Holy Spirit is living within me. I hereby affirm my dependence on You, Father and the work of Your Holy Spirit. I ask for Your guidance, wisdom and power to renew my mind and walk according to the Spirit. I ask for Your grace to help me abide in Jesus and live a life pleasing to You. In Jesus name. Amen.
