God Of My Youth, Forget Me Not In My Old Age, Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

God Of My Youth, Forget Me Not In My Old Age, Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

The life of all mammals and plants have a beginning and end. In between these two points is a middle position where all organism reach a peak or plateau and from there they begin to experience a decline.

The bible put the old age of man at 70-80 years. After which the bible says life may become more challenging (Psalms 90:10). With that figure in mind, it means that life climax or peak is about 35-40 years, after which the law of diminishing returns do set in.

Little wonder we start growing grey hairs at 35 and above. The good news, however, is that our God can stem or override any law. May you not experience diminishing returns at 40, 50, 60, 70 in Jesus name. Your strength shall not decline. At 70, may you still be strong.

Jesus said “It is finished” before He gave up His spirit. Meaning there is nothing more He wanted to do.
You will not exit this world before your Divine time.
You will complete your assignment before you release your spirit.

The glory of the youth is their strength, because of this, it is possible for youths to think they can help themselves and not require the help and assistance of anyone, including God. But as life progresses, a time comes when the youth later realise that he now needs help.

David became the king of Judah at 30 years and the king of Israel at 37 years (2 Sam. 5:5); and finally died at 70 years (2 Sam. 5:4). The bible says he died at a ripe old age.
1 Chronicles 29:26-28 – Thus David the son of Jesse reigned over all Israel. And the time that he reigned over Israel was forty years; seven years reigned he in Hebron, and thirty and three years reigned he in Jerusalem. And he died in a good old age, full of days, riches, and honour: and Solomon his son reigned in his stead.

He had nothing else to do.
He completed his assignment.
He fulfilled his purpose for living.
He was able to see the continuation of his legacy in Solomon.
– May you live to a good old age.
May you be full of days. Full of riches. Full of honour. May the seed from your loin/womb later reign in your stead.

In I Kings 1:1-4, prior to David’s death, the bible recorded that he started feeling funny, he was always feeling cold. So his servants got him a young girl to keep him warm, but David knew that it wasn’t the help of a man he needed, but the help of God. So David had to pray.

Psalms 71:17-18 – O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and gray-headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to everyone that is to come.

The God that helped him at possibly 15 to kill lion and bear.
The God that helped him to kill Goliath at 17.
The God that defended him from King Saul until he was 30.
The God that defended him from General Abner and Ishibosheth, the son of Saul until he was 37.
That same God should not forsake him. God didn’t. His life ended peacefully.

God has helped us to cross over different hurdles in our early years, we can still trust in Him in our older years and till our final days.

It is important to know that David was able to enjoy the help of God because he obeyed God from his youth. Big lessons for our youth.
Romans 12:1-2 – I beseech you, therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

For us to enjoy God till our hairs all go grey, we must obey God in our younger years. We must be ready to learn from Him.

Proverbs 14:12 – There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.

Proverbs 19:21 – There are many devices in a man’s heart; nevertheless the counsel of the Lord, that shall stand.

David must have been taught of God to have succeeded in life. This is evident in his wisdom, forgiveness, repentance, devotion, writings, etc.

We too must offer ourselves to be taught of God in order to finish well and not only just start well.
God taught David through:
– His word (Psalm 119:9-11). A young man keeps his way pure…
– His prophets (Samuel, Nathan, Gad)
– His Spirit (I Sam. 30:1-8).
– Life challenges (Saul, Absalom, Ahitophel, Joab, Shemei, Jonathan).

What have you learnt from God?
Who have you learned from His prophets?
What have you learned from God’s word?
In what way have you received God’s instructions.
What lessons have remained with you?
Are you profiting from your past and present life experiences?

David said that God has taught him from his youth, meaning that he did not stop to learn. We must not grow physically and spiritually to where we are no longer learning. When one stops learning, they start diminishing.

Apostle Paul with all his knowledge of Christ was still yearning to know more (Phil. 3:10-11). How much of God do you know? Are you satisfied with all you know? Do you truly seek to know more?

David enjoyed the help of God in his old age because he used his mouth and his life to declare the wondrous works of God. David took every opportunity to show forth the glory of God. E.g. killing Goliath of Gath.

Whatever we do in life, our main assignment must be to declare the wondrous works of God. When God sees that, He will be more willing to help us till old age.

We must, however, be able to distinguish the wondrous works of God from the promotional works of men. In what way are you using your life to show forth the praise of God? This is the time for you to do so.

May God not forsake you in your old age.
Of what importance is a life that was enjoyed the help of God in the youth but in old age?
Lot‘s end did not go well.
Judah messed up is old age.
King Solomon didn’t do well either.
King Asa made a mess of his old age.
May your old age be fine. May all ends well for you.

Though David was in his old age, yet he wanted God to still use him to show forth His strength to the present generation and His power to future generations. No wonder we are reading about David today.
Are you passionate about what God can do in your life?

What lion have you killed to glorify God?
What Goliath have you slain?
That must have been yesterday.
What are you doing for the present generation to see?
What are you doing for the future generations to see?
This is the time to do it. Your hairs will soon turn grey.
May God help us till the end in Jesus name.

Prayers
Psalms 71:17-18 O God, thou hast taught me from my youth: and hitherto have I declared thy wondrous works. Now also when I am old and gray-headed, O God, forsake me not; until I have shewed thy strength unto this generation, and thy power to everyone that is to come.

– Father, teach me throughout my lifetime.
– Father, help me to declare your wondrous works.
– Father, do not forsake me throughout my days.
– Father, help me to show thy strength to my generation and your power to generations to come.

Prove Your Own Self, by Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

Text: 2 Corinthians 13:5-6

Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves. Know ye not your own selves, how that Jesus Christ is in you, except ye be reprobates? But I trust that ye shall know that we are not reprobates.

There is a practice that I have seen in this country, especially with the Council. That at least once a year, an appraisal of one’s work is conducted. It was somehow shocking to me the first time I had to experience it as I was given the opportunity to first score myself before my manager would later review and assessed my scoring. Supposing my score was not objective, it would have been shameful going through it with my manager.

Also, the athletes who compete in championships and Olympics have to subject themselves unto rigorous self-trials before their competition. That is why you see that for some athletes, PB is written in front of their time.

Tests and examinations are phenomena that are familiar to all of us. They are ways of checking what we have learnt and mastered over a period of time. Academically, I know that some students do not like tests and examination; however, there is no way we can demonstrate that we have understood and mastered a taught process, except we are examined somehow.

Fact of life, we can’t live without tests and examinations. As a matter of fact, God is the Originator of test and He will be the Terminator of it. Tests commenced from the Garden of Eden, and it will possibly end at Armageddon.

Sources of tests

From God e.g. Abraham (Gen. 22: 1-2).

From Satan e.g. David (I Chronicles 21:1-4).

From People: (spouse, family, brethren, friends, establishments, society, etc.) e.g. Joshua by the Gibeonites (Jos. 9:3-15).

From Self: e.g. Apostle Paul (I Cor. 9:27; Rom. 8:38-39); Job (Job 23:10-13).

Areas to administer tests

Your salvation (Mt. 7:21; Phil. 2:12).

Your disposition towards the word of God (I Thes. 2:13; Mt. 13:1-9, 18-23).

Your character (Mt. 7:15-18).

Your extent of sacrifice and faithfulness (John 21: 15-17; James 2: 26; Mt. 24:11-13).

Your purpose in life (John 18:37).

As believers, I see it that a crucial examination we must constantly go through is self-examination. This will ensure that we are not caught unaware or unguarded by other tests, and we don’t receive condemnation and punishment.

I Cor. 11:28-33).

There is a danger of falling into grave error if one doesn’t examine himself often.

David fell into serious error – (2 Sam. 11:2-4; 12:1-14).

The five foolish virgins fell into grave error –   (Mt. 25:1-13).

Jesus taught His disciples to practise self-examination

Matthew 7:1-5 –Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged:and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Matthew 7:12 – Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them:for this is the law and the prophets.

Matthew 5:20 – For I say unto you, that except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.

Method of self-examination

Ask God to reveal yourself to you (Psalm 139:23-24). Psalms 139:23-24 Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.

Align your life and ways with the word of God (James 1:22-25). Doer of the word…, check against life and amend.

Do a scale of preference for your life and consider your priorities (Lk. 6:38 seek ye first; Luke 12:33-34). Lay up treasures, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be.

Compare and contrast your way of life before you confess the lordship of Jesus Christ with what you are now (2 Cor. 5:17).

Zacchaeus was a sinner. But when Jesus met him and he received salvation, the first thing he did was self-examination even Christ has not asked him yet (Lk. 19:1-10).

If we want to be sincere with ourselves, there must be areas of our lives that we might need to make amends after careful and thorough self-examination. It is my prayer that we will not deceive ourselves.

Can a man/woman deceive himself/herself? Yes. Samson was a good example. All his escapade with Delilah was a self-deceit.

Delilah was doing all what he said would let his power leave and also called his enemies on him. Yet he eventually told her his secret. He still thought he could shake himself as aforetime. How possible? He has already failed his examination.

How is your current faith? As a child, as a wife, mother, husband, father, as a child of God and a follower of Christ. Will you say you are more fervent in faith than last year for example? Or have you left your first love? Will you prove yourself? Or are you prepared to deceive yourself? Talk to God right now.

Prayers

Hebrew 4:1 – Let us, therefore, fear, lest, a promise being left us of entering into his rest, any of you should seem to come short of it.

– Father, let me not come short of your promised rest.

– Father, let me do what it will take me to enjoy your promised rest.

Hebrews 4:9 – There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God.

– Father, let me be a partaker of that rest that remains for God’s people.

Hebrews 4:11 – Let us labour, therefore, to enter into that rest, lest any man falls after the same example of unbelief.

– Father, let me not be a victim of unbelief or partial faith.

Power From On High, by Pastor Samuel Obafaiye

There are many things that we contend with as believers: Satan, world order, those who hate and despitefully use us, our flesh, wicked spirits, etc.

One of the most sought-after thing/substance on earth is power. To the extent that even in heaven, where order prevails, the quest for power had become an issue before. Whether at an individual, group, state or national level. We all want power. We all need power.

So how can we rightly obtain power? From God obviously.

What is Power?

Power is an English logical construct that refers to a variety of ideas relating to ability; capacity; authority; might and strength.

The objective of this discourse is for us to know how to live a victorious and not a defeated Christian life, despite the above challenges. We must, however:

  • Hunger and thirst for the power of God;
  • Cherish and place value on this power in our lives;
  • Deploy and put to use the power made available to us.

Luke 24:49 – And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.

Mt. 10:16  – Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.

Sources of power

  • God (Heaven; On high; Above)
  • Satan (Hell; Below; Beneath)
  • People (Around)
  • Self (Within)

Sources of power – God

Mk 16:16-18 – And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned. And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Acts 10:38 – How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.

Sources of power – Satan

– He was the Anointed cherub (Isaiah 14: 12-17).

– Used by The witch of Endor (I Sam. 28: 3-19).

Lucifer was able to withstand Angel Gabriel for 21 days (Dan. 10: 1-13).

To understand the power that Satan has, consider the power of one angel – 2 Kings 19:20-35.

Sources of power – People

Saul’s unlawful sacrifice because he relied on the power of the people to protect him (I Sam. 13: 5-14).Saul’s partial obedience, again because he did not want to offend people (I Sam. 15: 10-21, 30).

Some know how to harness the power of the people and thrive in it. Usually, it is that same power that brings them down.

Sources of power – Self

Goliath of Gath (I Sam. 17: 4-11)

The rich fool (Luke 12: 16-21)

Kinds/Spheres of power

Political (Legislature/Executive)

Economical (Global lenders)

Monarchical (Decrees)

Religious (Revere as  a god)

Academic (Bad example – Charles Darwin)

Civil (Police, Enforcement Officers, Judge; Examiners; etc.)

Divine Power further explained

  1. Power is an inherent characteristic of God (I Peter 5: 11).
  2. God delegated this power unto Man at creation (Gen. 1:26-28).
  3. Satan hijacked that power when Man fell in the Garden of Eden (Rom. 6:16).
  4. Jesus as God incarnate exercised Divine power when He came (John 5:26-27; Lk. 4:18-19, 36).
  5. Jesus, in turn, delegated this Divine power to those who believe in Him (Lk. 10:19).
  6. Divine power does manifest in two forms. E.g. Jesus was given:

Exousia – Authority (Mt. 28:18)

Dunamis – Supernatural Ability (Acts 10:38).

For us as believers: (Mk. 16: 16-18; Acts 1:8).

However, Satan still parades himself as if he has power over the believer when he doesn’t.

He seeks to instil fear in us, so as to steal, kill or destroy.

The Believers’ Arsenals

The name of Jesus (Phil. 2:10-11)

The blood of Jesus (Rev 12:11)

The word of God (Mt. 4:4,7,10).

Invoke the Fire of the Holy Spirit (Heb. 12:29; Num. 11:1; 2 Kgs 1: 9-10).

Condition of usage

Ephesian 6:10-18 tells us that we must:

  • Gird our loins with truth;
  • Wear breastplate of righteousness;
  • Put on the shoe of the gospel of peace;
  • Carry the shield of faith ;
  • Wear the helmet of salvation;
  • Hold the sword of Spirit;
  • Praying always with all prayer in the Spirit;
  • Interceding for other saints;
  • Stand firm, therefore.

Can the Divine power work for every believer?

Yes. Though the power is available to every believer; sadly it may not work for everyone. Especially:

  • Those still living in sin. For example, 7 Sons of High Priest (Acts 19:11-17).
  • Those not genuinely born again. E.g Simon the sorcerer (Acts 8: 9-24).
  • The doubtful. The apostles (Mk. 11:21-23).
  • The ignorant. The disciples (John 6: 48-69).
  • The prayerless and non-faster. The apostles (Mt. 17: 14-21).

Biblical examples of those who were endued with power from on high we can emulate

  1. Elijah (James 5: 17-18).
  2. Joshua (Joshua 10:12-14)
  3. Peter (Acts 3: 1-10).
  4. Paul (Acts 13: 4-12).
  5. Contemporary examples: Pastor Adeboye; Rev. Kumuyi; Rev. Madugba; Rev. Lawon; etc.

Caution: I John 4:1 Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Prayers

Father, demonstrate Your power over me and in me.

Father, demonstrate Your power through me and by me.

Father, help me to use the power You have invested in me.

Father, help me to be a true representative of Your Spirit on earth.

Removing Hell’s Testimony Against Us, by Apostle Isaiah Lawon

Satan’s effort to connect our bloodlines to delays or deny our blessing before God’s throne!!

The Kinds of Prayer:

  1. Personal Prayers and Requests – Luke 11:1-4
  2. Intercessory Prayers (on behalf of others) – Luke 11:5-11
  3. Entering the courts of heaven in God’s Presence – Luke 18:1-8

Distinct realms connected to our blood lines that provide the devil with testimony or evidence against us. These are five:

  1. Rebellion.
  2. Trades,
  3. Covenants,
  4. Dedications
  5. Words.

 

  1. REBELLION

2 CHRON. 16:1-12

2 Chronicles 16:1-12.

We see this in the life of Asa, King of Judah. Asa served God and had good success. The success caused arrogance and pride to come into his life. Asa counted on other nations, rather than God to defend Israel. The prophet came to call Asa to repent and instead of repenting Asa punished the prophet. (2 Chronicles 16:10) Asa became sick. He did not seek the Lord. He continued in his rebellion until he died. Rebellion and stubbornness connect us to demonic things. If people in our bloodline walked in rebellion against the Lord, this gives the devil the legal right to afflict us. We must repent of anything or in anytime our ancestors walked in rebellion and sinned against God.

  1. TRADING

Trading is an activity in the spirit realm. It is possible to trade in god’s economy. It is possible to trade in the devil’s realm. Everything is a trade in the spirit world. The cross of Jesus was the greatest trade of all. 2 Corinthians 5:21 says for he made him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of god in him.

Jesus traded his life of righteousness for us. As a result of this trade we have salvation.

JESUS’ DIVINE TRADING

ENEMY’S AFFLICTIONS             PROVISIONS OF THE CROSS

  • DEATH • LIFE
  • SICKNESS • HEALTH
  • POVERTY • PROSPERITY
  • SIN • RIGHTEOUSNESS
  • SHAME • GLORY
  • CURSES • BLESSING
  • SEPARATION • RECONCILIATION

Luke 19:15 says: – 5 “And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading.

The servants were supposed to take the currency that had been given to them and to trade the currency to produce something greater.

Currency can be much more than money. We have been given time, gifts, energy, favour, anointing and many other valuable things. How we trade with these currencies determines what is produced and gained. We trade every day. In 2 Corinthians 12 verse 15 Paul speaks of spending himself. And I will very gladly spend and be spent for your souls; though the more abundantly I love you, the less I am loved.

Paul says he would trade himself away for their betterment. In the natural, we take money or gold and trade it for other things. Paul said he was taking spiritual currency and trading it for the benefit of others. Our actions, attitudes, sacrifices, and gifts are being acknowledged in the spirit realm.

  1. TRADING CREATES COVENANTS; IN ANY AND EVERY COVENANT MADE THERE IS A TRADE.

TRADES CREATE COVENANTS

In the marriage covenant, people trade rings and vows and promises. Once we have dealt with any trades used, we must also undo any covenants that have resulted from the trades.

Genesis 21:27 – 27 So Abraham took sheep and oxen and gave them to Abimelech, and the two of them made a covenant. The trade signified their entering into a covenant or agreement.

People in our ancestry may have made covenants with demons for protection so that they would prosper or have power. These covenants were made through sacrifice or trades. Many times they were made using the sacrifice or trading of blood. Sometimes even the blood of humans. Once the sacrifices or trades were made the demons claimed the people as their own according to what was dedicated to them when the trade was made. In this way, individuals, families, bloodlines, cities, nations and entire cultures were given over.

These covenants created in the spirit world remain active until someone annuls them. Whatever the devil owns will eventually be destroyed through sickness, disease, poverty and tragedy. This is why many people are sick today. Somewhere in their bloodline, demonic powers have been given the right to own them. These rights have to be revoked. When this happens, the demons lose the right to hold the people in sickness.

“Lord Jesus I come repenting of any trade I have made with the devil and any covenant that has resulted as a result. I repent and I ask for the blood of Jesus to annul this covenant. For any place where my ancestors or I have gotten into an agreement with demonic powers, I repent. Whether this came through sacrifice to demonic powers or activities of rebellion and sin, I repent. If I have not only made covenants with devils but also broken covenants with man, I repent. I repent of any time I have been a covenant breaker, dishonouring or abusing authority. Lord, I ask that your blood will now speak for me according to Hebrews 12:24. I ask that Your blood would testify before the courts of heaven to annul every covenant with the powers of darkness. Lord, I ask that Your court now set in place all that You did for me on the cross. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for securing my healing by Your atoning work.

I now receive the effects of the anointing of the Holy Spirit into my body. Holy Spirit, come now to heal and restore any diseased part of my being, I ask, Lord Jesus, that any sickness operating against me now be judged as illegal from Your cross. I ask the Holy Spirit to touch me and make me whole. I receive everything you died for me to have. Thank you so much.

  1. DEDICATIONS OR CONSECRATION

THE REALMS OF THE SPIRIT COMES TO DEMAND FOR WHAT IS CONSECRATED TO THEM.

Just because you have prayed a prayer of salvation it does not mean that the conflict is over. This is when it begins. Satan will begin to build a case against you. This is especially true if you accept Jesus as saviour and not as Lord. When we accept Jesus as saviour we want the benefits of who He is and what He does. When we make Him our Lord we are declaring His ownership over us. This can be a fundamental reason the devil is still claiming ownership over us as a result of some dedication in our history.

Lord Jesus, we declare that we and our bloodlines belong to You. Any and every dedication made to the devil of our family line we now ask to be annulled by the blood of Jesus. We repent of any and every place we were dedicated to satanic powers through sacrifice. We ask that these sacrifices be annulled and the dedication rendered ineffective.

Lord Jesus, we acknowledge Your Lordship. We agree with the testimony of God as Judge, the Holy Spirit and all of Heaven that You are Lord. We now come under Your Lordship and declare that we belong to You. We are no longer our own; we are bought with the price of Your blood and sacrifice.

We invite the power of the Holy Spirit to exercise the Lordship of Jesus in our lives. We agree that everything Your blood purchased we now possess by the Holy Spirit. Every area of our lives we now surrender to you.

We now declare that any and every right is given to the powers of darkness through dedications to own us is now revoked. We belong only to the Lord Jesus Christ. Any and all sicknesses, diseases and pains afflicting us because of this previous ownership is now revoked and removed.

  1. WORDS

When someone with authority over our life or someone with authority in the spirit realm speaks evil of us, it can set things in motion. The demonic forces can take these words and build a case against us in the spirit realm. These words can give the devil the legal right to work against us.

People who are in authority can be parents, employers, bosses, leaders, pastors, elders, husbands, and anyone who has a position that gives them authority. Their words can be used in the spirit realm to bless or to curse.

People who have authority have been granted influence in the spirit realm. Because of a gift, office, call and history with God, they carry authority in the spirit realm. These people must be extremely careful with their words.

In 2 Corinthians 10:8, Paul speaks of using his authority correctly: For even if I should boast somewhat more about our authority, which the Lord gave us[a] for edification and not for your destruction, I shall not be ashamed—

Paul knew that his words had the power to build up and tear down.

There are 4 steps to undo words working against us.

1.) We must repent for every time we have spoken critically of others. We should also ask that any damage the devil has found a right to do to another because of our words be undone.

2.) We should repent for any instance where what others have said about us could be true. Sometimes their words against us are based on reality. We must acknowledge this and repent. We should ask for the blood of Jesus to speak for us on our behalf.

3.) Ask for the words to be annulled so the devil has no legal right to use them. We can ask for the blood of Jesus to revoke and remove these words from record within the Courts of Heaven.

4.) Declare that only what is written in the books of Heaven about us can happen. (See Psalm 139:16)

Let us pray to undo words that may be working against you.

Lord Jesus, I come laying my life down before You. I lay my life down and present myself as a living sacrifice to You. I declare that I was made by You, through You and for You. I declare I belong to You. I bring every word in the spirit realm that has been spoken about me before You. Any and every word that the devil is using that has been spoken by people, those in authority over

I first repent for every place I have spoken evil of others. I ask Lord, to be forgiven because of Your blood that now speaks for me. I am sorry for all my negativity and words of destruction against others. I ask that these words would be annulled and that the devil be unable to use them to secure legal rights to harm others. I am sorry for all of this.

I also repent of anything that has been spoken of against me and anywhere there is truth in these things. Lord, please show me anywhere I am guilty of that which has been declared about me. I take responsibility for anywhere I am at fault or in sin. I ask that Your blood cleanse and forgive me and wash away any rights the devil might use. I now ask, Lord, that all words against me be annulled by the blood of Jesus.

I ask for the speaking blood to speak on my behalf and revoke and remove all words that the devil could be using to build a case against me. Let these words be removed from the record of Heaven. Let every voice against me now be silenced. Let them not be used anymore to build any case against me.
