Praying the Word against deception and spiritual blindness

Deception and spiritual blindness have been prophesied by Jesus and the apostles that it is to increase on the earth towards the end, including among the elect, if at all possible. We need to be more than ever vigilant against this grave danger that could cause us to fall away from God or lead us astray into the devil’s traps or personal destruction.

If you are a minister of the Gospel, a preacher, teacher and especially a prophet, meditating and proclaiming the Scriptures below will help keep you in a safe place in God.

All the below prayers are scriptures turned to prayers or proclamations of the promises of God. I encourage you to print them out, keep them in your Bible and pray them regularly over your life.
