How do I pray

Prayer to Renounce Rebellion


Dear Heavenly Father, Your Word in 1 Samuel 15:23Bible quoteFor rebellion [is as] the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness [is as] iniquity and idolatry. Because thou hast rejected the word of the LORD, he hath also rejected thee from [being] king.1 Samuel 15 verse 23 teaches me that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft or divination, and that insubordination is as the sin of idolatry. You, Father, call this a detestable thing. I know my actions are a reflection of the attitude of my heart. At times, I have sinned against You, Heavenly Father, by going my own way and doing what I wanted to do. By doing this, I have opened the door for the enemy to have an entrance into my life, to harass and attack me. I confess that this is a rebellious spirit.

Father, I now humbly REPENT for my rebellion and choose to have a humble and obedient spirit. I reject Satan and all his workings in my life and body. I do not know all of the areas in which Satan may have gained access to me. I ask You, dear Holy Spirit, to reveal to me and to Your servant, any hidden rebellion in my heart. I understand that submission is agreeing and working together with someone to get a job done. I here and now choose to have a submissive spirit, and submit to Your servant in this time of ministry to accomplish the work You have called me to do. I choose to walk in the light, and I reject all rebellion, in Jesus' name. Amen.
