I pray for my brother and sister who are feeling oppressed today. Lord you said you will be a refuge for the oppressed and you raise those who are bowed.
In the name of Jesus, I speak to the spirit of oppression and tell you to go from my brother and sister. According to Matthew 18:18 what ever is bound of earth is bound in heaven and what ever is loosed on earth is loosed in heaven. Lord your word says that man shall not leave by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). Lord I thank you for strengthening their heart and in you Lord they have put their trust. This day and forever more they are healed by the blood of Jesus.
Psalm 9:9-10 New King James Version (NKJV)
9 The Lord also will be a refuge for the oppressed, A refuge in times of trouble. 10 And those who know Your name will put their trust in You; For You, Lord, have not forsaken those who seek You.
Psalm 146:8 NKJV
8 The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; The Lord raises those who are bowed down; The Lord loves the righteous.
Psalm 31:22-24 NKJV
22 For I said in my haste, “I am cut off from before Your eyes”; Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications When I cried out to You. 23 Oh, love the Lord, all you His saints! For the Lord preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person. 24 Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.
Isaiah 53:5 New King James Version NKJV
5 But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, And by His stripes we are healed.
