Prayer for Victory

At the cross, Christ defeated all powers of sin and darkness, and in his resurrection, triumphed over death itself. When we pray, we can remind ourselves and give thanks that the same supernatural power that raised Jesus from the grave is alive in us and our prayers:-

Prayer for victory and protection

I lift the flag of praise high and declare you are my king.
I walk boldly forward into kingdom lands and trust in you as my fortress.
I stand strong rooted in the goodness of your love and draw near to you.
I ride triumphantly upon your grace and thank you that the battle has already been won.
You are my king, my fortress, my strength and my redeemer.
Lord, I lift your name high above all others and worship you!

Elijah's victory prayer at Carmel

It happened at the time of the offering of the offering, that Elijah the prophet came near, and said, "LORD, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Israel, let it be known this day that you are God in Israel, and that I am your servant, and that I have done all these things at your word. Hear me, LORD, hear me, that this people may know that you, LORD, are God, and that you have turned their heart back again."

Then the fire of the LORD fell, and consumed the burnt offering, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. When all the people saw it, they fell on their faces. They said, "The LORD, he is God! The LORD, he is God!"

1 Kings 18:36-39, (NHEB)
