Jesus demonstrated the
40 day Prayer Strategy to tear down strongholds,
when he was driven into the wilderness to be
tempted. He responded to every mind set that the
enemy offered him with, "It is written .... ."
Even though He was sinless, He still had to
choose to agree with God's truth about him for
40 days in order to defeat all fragments of the
devil's mind sets!
We need to "defrag" our minds (like computers)
from every fragment of old and current mental
strongholds. Programming in Truth will replace
every "program" of agreements with the lies that
have been spoken over us. When our obedience is
complete, we will be able to take revenge on the
devil according to 2 Cor. 10:4-6 . Do you 10-4?
we are empty of strongholds, then we are
finally able to be truly filled with God's
Holy Spirit and to be healed people -
A STRONGHOLD IS a mind set impregnated with
hopelessness, which causes us to accept as
unchangeable, situations and beliefs that we
know are contrary to God's truth about us and
all that concerns us.

God, I renounce the deceptions, lies and guilt
that have tormented me.
In your name,
Lord, I strip away every stronghold or
mindset in my soul that blocks God's truth.
I choose to believe your Word and to
submit to truth, in balance, and with my whole
break agreement with all my ancestor's sins. I
release all my hurts to your healing and
will covenant together to take the Word of God,
resist lies and embrace truth, like Jesus did,
for 40 days. We will swing the Sword of the
Spirit until we have victory in our own lives
and the beam is out of our own eye!
WILL UNITE OUR PRAYERS to agree with God's truth
rather than our negative mindsets. We will persevere
for our hope is in God's Word to us, which will not
fail. In the name of Jesus, we loose ourselves from
contending with the Word and bind ourselves to God's
will, way and timing.
Do not conform any longer to the pattern of
this world, but be transformed by the renewing of
your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve
what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect
2 Cor 10:4-5
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons
of the world. On the contrary, they have divine
power to demolish strongholds.
We demolish arguments and every pretension
that sets itself up against the knowledge of God,
and we take captive every thought to make it
obedient to Christ.
Put on the full armor of God so that you can
take your stand against the devil's schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and
blood, but against the rulers, against the
authorities, against the powers of this dark world
and against the spiritual forces of evil in the

WE UNITE OUR PRAYERS to loose ourselves from
every form of selfish independence and every
strategy of the enemy to separate us from others,
from God and even from ourselves. We bind ourselves
to the unity of the Spirit of God in our homes,
churches and in our city. It is written in the Word
I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on
earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you
loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 19
Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth
agree about anything you ask for, it will be done
for you by my Father in heaven. 20
For where two or three come together in my
name, there am I with them."
How good and pleasant it is when brothers
live together in unity!
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and
lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will
make your paths straight.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the
LORD and shun evil.
Prov 3: 13-18
Blessed is the man who finds wisdom, the man
who gains understanding,
for she is more profitable than silver and
yields better returns than gold.
She is more precious than rubies; nothing you
desire can compare with her.
Long life is in her right hand; in her left
hand are riches and honor.
Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths
She is a tree of life to those who embrace
her; those who lay hold of her will be blessed.
There are six things the LORD hates, seven
that are detestable to him:
haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed
a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet
that are quick to rush into evil,
a false witness who pours out lies and a man
who stirs up dissension among brothers.
A wife of noble character who can find? She
is worth far more than rubies.
Her husband has full confidence in her and
lacks nothing of value.
She brings him good, not harm, all the days
of her life.
She speaks with wisdom, and faithful
instruction is on her tongue.
She watches over the affairs of her household
and does not eat the bread of idleness.
Her children arise and call her blessed; her
husband also, and he praises her:
Many women do noble things, but you surpass
Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised.
Give her the reward she has earned, and let
her works bring her praise at the city gate.

Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
For the husband is the head of the wife as
Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which
he is the Savior. 24
Now as the church submits to Christ, so also
wives should submit to their husbands in everything.
Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ
loved the church and gave himself up for her 26
to make her holy, cleansing
her by the washing with water through the
word, 27 and
to present her to himself as a radiant church,
without stain or wrinkle or any other blemish, but
holy and blameless.

man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for

effect of righteousness will be quietness and
UNITE OUR PRAYERS, to loose ourselves from the
effects of the guilt shame, hurt, trauma and
hopelessness that devils have brought into our
lives. In the Name of Jesus Christ, as the bride of
Christ, we bind ourselves to Christ our healer, who
redeems every experience, removes the pain and makes
our weak places strong for His glory.
Do not be afraid; you will not suffer shame.
Do not fear disgrace; you will not be humiliated.
You will forget the shame of your youth and remember
no more the reproach of your widowhood.
For your Maker is your husband-- the LORD
Almighty is his name-- the Holy One of Israel is
your Redeemer; he is called the God of all the
In righteousness you will be established:
Tyranny will be far from you; you will have nothing
to fear. Terror will be far removed; it will not
come near you.
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news
to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the
brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor and
the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who

bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a
garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a
planting of the LORD for the display of his

I will repay you for the years the locusts
have eaten-- the great locust and the young locust,
the other locusts and the locust swarm -- my great
army that I sent among you.
You will have plenty to eat, until you are
full, and you will praise the name of the LORD your
God, who has worked wonders for you; never again
will my people be shamed.
Then you will know that I am in Israel, that
I am the LORD your God, and that there is no other;
never again will my people be shamed.
And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on
all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams, your young men will
Even on my servants, both men and women, I
will pour out my Spirit in those days.
I will show wonders in the heavens and on the
earth, blood and fire and billows of smoke.
The sun will be turned to darkness and the
moon to blood before the coming of the great and
dreadful day of the LORD.
And everyone who calls on the name of the
LORD will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in
Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the LORD has
said, among the survivors whom the LORD calls.
1 John 1:9
9 If we
confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive
our sins and to CLEANSE US FROM ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
28 And we know
that God causes all things to work together for good
for those that love God, to those who are called
according to HIS purposes.
SATAN, WE UNITE OUR PRAYERS to loose ourselves from
hopelessness and helplessness and to bind ourselves
to God's plans, purposes and VISION for our lives
with new faith and commitment.
"I am the LORD, the God of all mankind. Is
anything too hard for me?"
1 Cor 1:21-22
21 Now He who
established us with you in Christ and anointed us is
God, 22 Who also sealed us and gave us the Spirit in
our hearts as a pledge.
This is what the LORD says, he who made the
earth, the LORD who formed it and established
it--the LORD is his name:
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you
great and unsearchable things you do not know.
I will stand at my watch and station myself
on the ramparts; I will look to see what he will say
to me, and what answer I am to give to this
Then the LORD replied: "Write down the
revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a
herald may run with it.
and hope does not disappoint us, because God
has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy
Spirit, whom he has given us.
UNITE OUR PRAYERS to bind ourselves to the love of
God, His humility and to be expressions of His
heart. We loose ourselves from fleshly concerns,
fears and carnal jealousy and envy that divides.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart
and with all your soul and with all your mind and
with all your strength.'
The second is this: `Love your neighbor as
yourself.' There is no commandment greater than
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will
Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be
called sons of God.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because
of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of
Blessed are you when people insult you,
persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil
against you because of me.
Settle matters quickly with your adversary
who is taking you to court. Do it while you are
still with him on the way, or he may hand you over
to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the
officer, and you may be thrown into prison.
Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in
your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank
in your own eye?
Jesus called them together and said, "You
know that those who are regarded as rulers of the
Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials
exercise authority over them.
Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to
become great among you must be your servant,
and whoever wants to be first must be slave
For even the Son of Man did not come to be
served, but to serve, and to give his life as a
ransom for many."
You judge by human standards; I pass judgment
on no one.
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for
those who are in Christ Jesus,
because through Christ Jesus the law of the
Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and
For you did not receive a spirit that makes
you a slave again to fear, but you received the
Spirit of sonship.
And by him we cry, "Abba,
The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit
that we are God's children.
Now if we are children, then we are
heirs--heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if
indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we
may also share in his glory.
LORD, WE BIND OURSELVES to Godly motives, to
speaking in love, with patience and kindness in
every sentence... To speak with humility, without
rudeness, self-centeredness or anger... We loose our
wrong reactions to offenses. We repent of and loose
any right to keep a record of wrongs... We loose
ourselves from rejoicing in the other's weaknesses
and bind ourselves to rejoicing with them and in the
words will protect and express our trust in others
and show that we believe in them.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil;
cling to what is good.
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.
Honor one another above yourselves.
Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your
spiritual fervor, serving the Lord.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer.
We who are strong ought to bear with the
failings of the weak and not to please ourselves.
May the God who gives endurance and
encouragement give you a spirit of unity among
yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus,
so that with one heart and mouth you may
glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Accept one another, then, just as Christ
accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.

Therefore I do not run like a man running
aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the
No, I beat my body and make it my slave so
that after I have preached to others, I myself will
not be disqualified for the prize.
1 Cor 10:13
No temptation has seized you except what is
common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let
you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when
you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so
that you can stand up under it.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy,
peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control. Against such
things there is no law.
Those who belong to Christ Jesus have
crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
Then we will no longer be infants, tossed
back and forth by the waves, and blown here and
there by every wind of teaching and by the cunning
and craftiness of men in their deceitful scheming.
Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will
in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that
If you have any encouragement from being
united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if
any fellowship with the Spirit, if any tenderness

conceit, but in humility consider others better than
Each of you should look not only to your own
interests, but also to the interests of others.
Your attitude should be the same as that of
Who, being in very nature God, did not
consider equality with God something to be grasped,
but made himself nothing, taking the very
nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
And being found in appearance as a man, he
humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even
death on a cross!
IN JESUS' NAME, we loose ourselves from strongholds
of unforgiveness, distrust, fear and anger rooted in
the victim spirit, painful memories, fear of
closeness, and our "rights."
We bind ourselves to mercy and grace, trust,
and forgiving as Jesus did, paying the price.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.
Get rid of all bitterness, rage and anger,
brawling and slander, along with every form of
Be kind and compassionate to one another,
forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave
In your anger do not sin": Do not let the sun
go down while you are still angry,
and do not give the devil a foothold.
Therefore, my dear friends, as you have
always obeyed--not only in my presence, but now much
more in my absence--continue to work out your
salvation with fear and trembling,
for it is God who works in you to will and to
act according to his good purpose.
And over all these virtues put on love, which
binds them all together in perfect unity.
Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts,
since as members of one body you were called to
peace. And be thankful.
1 Pet 2:20-25
But how is it to your credit if you receive a
beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you
suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is
commendable before God.
To this you were called, because Christ
suffered for you, leaving you an example that you
should follow in his steps.
"He committed no sin, and no deceit was found
in his mouth."
When they hurled their insults at him, he did
not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats.
Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges
He himself bore our sins in his body on the
tree, so that we might die to sins and live for
righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.

JESUS' NAME, we loose ourselves from the strongholds
of control, manipulation and self-indulgence rooted
in fears of hurt, interdependence, bonding and in
not giving others value.
We bind ourselves to Your servant heart out
of faith, love and peace.
And without faith it is impossible to please
God, because anyone who comes to him must believe
that he exists and that he rewards those who
earnestly seek him.
Make every effort to live in peace with all
men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see

issues and every facade we use to protect our flesh.
We bind ourselves to the love of Jesus,
integrity, truth, His joyful strength and genuine
For the word of God is living and active.
Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates
even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow;
it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
Nothing in all creation is hidden from God's
sight Every creature is uncovered and laid bare
before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.
1 Pet 3:7
Husbands, in the same way be considerate as
you live with your wives, and treat them with
respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you
