Prayer to Combat Stinking Thinking

I declare I am one whose mind is set on the Lord, and I hear His voice. I hear the Lord’s voice, and I do not listen to another. I abandon all “stinking thinking” right now and choose to confess the Word of God and come into agreement with it.

It is no longer I who live but Christ who lives in me the Hope of Gory. I have set my face like flint, and I shall not be confounded or confused by the voice of the enemy nor shall I be put to shame by him, for I am in perfect peace. No weapon…no thought formed against me shall prosper for I discern good and evil…between accusation and conviction and respond appropriately.

I receive conviction by the Holy Spirit that I am righteous in Christ Jesus.

I walk in Godly Sorrow which leads to repentance and not according to worldly sorrow. Conviction and awareness of sin in my life does not come with accusation, guilt or shame. I reject accusation and take authority over it according to the Cross and the shed blood of Christ.

I declare I am one who thinks only on what is pure, lovely and upright for I take all negative accusing thoughts captive in obedience to Christ and His Word. There is no condemnation in Christ so the accusing words of the enemy are lies, and I resist them. I submit to the truth of God’s Word about me, and I resist the devil and his lies…and he is fleeing as I do this.

I am one who walks in power, love and a sound mind according to the Truth of the eternal Word. The things of the world are temporal and subject to the rule of Christ; therefore, I set my mind and heart on eternal things which have no end.

Fear has no place in me this day or any other day, for all is well with my soul. I declare the Lord is contending with all things that contend with me. The battle is His and as He fights for me I choose to set my affections on Him…to praise and give thanksgiving for the goodness I have seen in my life. I drink deeply from the wells of salvation. I encourage myself in the Lord even as David did. The alabaster box of my heart is poured out before the Lord and He kisses me with the kisses of truth, love, affection, goodness, kindness, forgiveness, peace, courage and complete forgiveness– past, present and future, for surely He has gone before me to make a way where there is no way.

The Lord is perfecting all things that concern me even at this very moment. Therefore, I choose…I declare today is a whole new day to rejoice in the Lord and to be one who flows continuously with living water out of the depths of my being in Him. I live, move and have my being in the Lord. I am in Christ and He is in me…I abide in Him regardless of how I feel or think.

My place in the Lord is positional and not based on feelings, thoughts or anything else. My position in the Lord is based on the blood He shed which I have accepted. My position is not according to works. The truth of the Word supersedes the facts on the ground in my life. Today is a new day for new thoughts…for new faith…for new hope, for I am seated in heavenly places in Christ with a clean heart and a steadfast spirit. All is well with my soul this day and every day after.

Amen
