“Father, I come before you in prayer. I enter into your gates with thanksgiving and enter into your courts with praise1. I praise you because you are worthy, holy, righteous, and just. I plead the blood of Jesus over myself, my dwelling place, my spouse, my children, my car, my bank account, and everything under my stewardship2. I pray that your heavenly hosts, your angels, would guard this dwelling place round about, both above and below and against every dimensional access point in Jesus’ name3. I will say of the Lord that you are my refuge and my fortress, my God, in you will I trust4. I thank you that you set a hedge of protection round about me and that no plague will come near my dwelling5. I thank you in advance that every curse, hex, spell, incantation, voodoo, sorcery, form of witchcraft, dark art, or other forms of weaponized demonic activity sent against me would be reversed upon the heads of the senders seven-fold that they would know that Jesus is Lord6. Moreover, I pray that every human spirit, fallen angelic spirit, or otherwise malevolent spirit attempting to come against me or my household would be apprehended by your heavenly hosts such that they cannot so much as set foot upon this property7. I pray that they would be escorted out to wherever the Lord Jesus sends them, pierced through with many arrows and discomfited by your lightning in the process, that they would know that Jesus is Lord8. Furthermore, I cancel and render powerless all attempts at mind-to-mind communication, dream manipulation, and all other forms of psychic and telepathic intrusion in the name of Jesus9. I thank you that all of my dreams are inspired by your Holy Spirit10. I declare that my sleep will be sweet, uninterrupted and that upon waking I will be well rested11. I also put on the armor of light12. I take up the helmet of salvation, the breastplate of righteousness, the belt of truth, I declare that my feet are shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace, and I take up the shield of faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one, and the sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God13. I pray all of this in the mighty name of Jesus, Amen14.
Notes on the Prayer
1 “Enter into his gates with thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: be thankful unto him, and bless his name.” (Psalm 100:4). Never stop giving thanks and praising God. I open every prayer with praise and thanksgiving. This will always lead to more powerful and effective prayers.
2 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.” (Revelation 12:10) The enemy hates the blood of Jesus because he is overcome by it. The power of His blood is an inarguable weapon in the believer’s arsenal. The life is in the blood (Leviticus 17:11) and so every time the blood of Jesus is applied it is an application of the very life of Jesus Christ. It is an application of the power to cleanse sin (Colossians 1:14) and bring healing (1 Peter 2:24). It is one of three that bear witness to the resurrection and victory of Jesus Christ “in the earth” along with the water and the Spirit (1 John 5:8). When the angel of death, otherwise called the destroyer, was sent out in the book of Exodus, he passed over every household displaying the blood of a lamb on its doorpost (Exodus 12:23). This was a type and shadow of what the blood of Jesus would one day accomplish. Even death must respect the blood. Why wouldn’t we plead it over everything? Frankly, to do otherwise as believers is a waste of God’s resources.
3 “And Elisha prayed, and said, Lord, I pray thee, open his eyes, that he may see. And the Lord opened the eyes of the young man; and he saw: and, behold, the mountain was full of horses and chariots of fire round about Elisha.” (2 Kings 6:17). God set His heavenly army in battle array round about the prophet Elisha. Centuries later, Jesus went on to say that John the Baptist was the greatest of the Old Testament prophets and that the least in the Kingdom was greater than him (Luke 7:28). What kind of angelic host do you think God will set about his spiritual children? He will send armies to war on our behalf! Moreover, angels are ministering spirits sent forth to minister to the heirs of salvation (Hebrews 1:14). Part of this ministry is protection. Psalm 91:11-12 declares that His angels will keep us in our ways and bear us up in their hands lest we should dash our foot upon a stone. This is why I set an angelic guard around my location (whether it is my house, a hotel room, or wherever I happen to be sleeping). Notice that I set them round about, both above and below. I have learned that above and below deals with dimensional access points, and that if I say the prayer in this way, I am employing protection against attacks entering from other dimensions.
4 “ I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.” (Psalm 91:2). The fortress of God, who wouldn’t want to sleep there?
5 “There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.” (Psalm 91:10). This is self-explanatory.
6 This is a list of common forms of weaponized demonic attacks. It is by no means complete but usually gets the job done. I used to pray that any curse sent would be stopped, but now I pray that they would be reversed. Why? One, when a curse is reversed upon the head of a sender it serves as a strong discouragement to continue. Two, when a curse is reversed with the purpose of revealing the power of Jesus, I believe that Jesus will honor this prayer and make sure that every reversal creates this testimony. On what scriptural grounds can a curse be reversed? The Bible is clear that we are partakers of the blessing of Abraham (Galatians 3:14). Part of Abraham’s blessing included the promise that those that cursed him would be cursed and those that blessed him would be blessed (Genesis 12:3). Why do I say seven-fold? This is loosely based on the promise that states my enemies will rise up against me in one direction and flee in seven (Deuteronomy 28:7). The Bible also says that when the thief is caught he shall restore seven-fold, even to the whole of his substance (Proverbs 6:31). This speaks of a seven-fold consequence for wrongs committed.
7 Demons are not the only spirits lurking around. The Devil also has human agents that do much of their work “out-of-body.” This is sometimes called “astral projection.” When a human is out-of-body they are in spirit form, yet dealing with this type of spirit is not the same as dealing with a demonic spirit because they are not under the same jurisdiction as demons. They have free will and do not necessarily respond to the name of Jesus in the same way that demons do because of their human nature. Just like I can’t necessarily command people around in the name of Jesus when they’re in their bodies, a degree of this remains true when they are in the spirit. This is why I assign angels to apprehend them and escort them out if they attempt to come against me. This is not a theory, the effectiveness of this prayer has been proven by experience. I also assign angels to apprehend fallen angels and other malevolent spirits attempting to come against me. A battle with a fallen angel will be many times more intense than a demonic attack. If I can assign angels to take care of the battle before it comes to me, why wouldn’t I?
8 “Yea, he sent out his arrows, and scattered them; and he shot out lightnings, and discomfited them.” (Psalm 18:14). Yes, God does have arrows and lightning and yes, we can use them. The fiery darts of the enemy (Ephesians 6:16) that many believers have been taught about are only a counterfeit to the arrows of God. These arrows will deal great damage to the armies of darkness. If a person comes out of body to attack me and winds up getting apprehended by heavenly angels and failing in their assignment it will frustrate them. If in addition, they receive the chastisement of heaven’s arrows and the lightening of God with the purpose that their discomfort will be evidence of the supreme power of Jesus, they will not be likely to return.
9 Psychic phenomena, telepathy, and other forms of mind-to-mind communication do not necessarily fall under the same category as curses and weaponized demonic attacks. They also do not require that the perpetrator be out-of-body and attempting to spiritually attack their target. For this reason, I list these issues separately, simply “cutting the enemy’s phone lines” if you will. This is a part of the prayer that I have incorporated due to experience. Before adding this section, I had several experiences involving the enemy trying to speak to my mind in my sleep. I was left trying to figure out how he got in until I realized that I should pray in this manner. “Wherefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and hope to the end for the grace that is to be brought unto you at the revelation of Jesus Christ” (1Peter 1:13).
10 God spoke on many occasions in the Bible through dreams. For instance, He spoke to Jacob in a dream in Genesis 46:2 and He spoke to Daniel in a dream in Daniel 7:7 and 7:13. Pray that God would do the same for you and that your dreams would be limited to His influence.
11 “When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.” (Proverbs 3:24). Sweet sleep is a promise from God to His children! Don’t ever think otherwise. The devil is a liar and he will try to cheat you out of what is rightfully yours if he can. Don’t let him. Demand your inheritance in Christ!
12 “The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us, therefore, cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light.” (Romans 13:12)
13 “Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God” (Ephesians 6:13-17). Note: In my prayer, I list these in a different order simply because I go from head to foot as I am taking up the armor. If using the order the apostle lists them in Scripture feels better for you, simply use his listing order.
14 “And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” (John 14:13). Ask everything in the name of Jesus. His name reflects His character. It contains the power of His supreme authority.

Yes it’s yet another great prayer yet, what happened to the prayer for our children as parents? I could’ve sworn, before my book of yours got stolen, that there was a prayer in there for us parents to pray for our children. And thank you for the book. It’s THE best prayer book that I’ve ever seen, HalleluYahuah! HalleluYahusha!

of Lights in Heaven, even as you yourself have done the same. Appreciate knowing what’s going on even though it has
taken me too long. O Lord, my years of tears have grown far too long…Have I not overstayed where none of your children
O, Lord, my years of tears have grown far too long

This prayer bless my soul thank you for sharing
This prayer has truly blessed me. It covers just about everything we should be praying to the Father. I too, will be praying this prayer each night!
God truly bless you and your family David!
Praying for the 1st time tonight, along with a blessing for Dan and his family and this ministry. You are appreciated and I thank you. Sleeping has been hard, and interrupted, and for several years now.
Thanks for this prayer. It is powerful and timely.
Thank you Daniel for this prayer. It has helped quiet what goes through my house at night and has lessened the attacks and the severity of the attacks.
Hi Dan, I just rec’d your book Prayers That Shake Heaven And Earth from a dear friend for a BD gift. As I declare the prayers I find myself unfamiliar with ; Interlopers? Dimensional access point? I need to understand what I am praying against. Would you mind taking the time to define? Thanks and God bless you!
An interloper is a spirit that shows up in a place where it doesn’t belong. Daniel goes into thorough detail about most terms in the morning prayer in this podcast here: https://bridemovement.com/morning-prayer-dan-duval/
I pray you see this and can help guide me. My family is under attack at a level far beyond my experience. It’s after my children. My baby has seen things in our home many times. My 10yo seems to be developing some kind of ticks, maybe OCD? I just found out my son gets thoughts telling him to kill himself regularly. 2 months ago there was an incident where I saw him in what I can only describe as pure terror. He was just now able to tell me about the demons he saw. Described every horrible detail. Full of rage. He said it had his dad’s face (my husbands) yet knew it wasn’t him bc of other features. My husband has been affected as well. I’m finally free from his torment on my mind and will do whatever it takes to help my family. There is much information out there that is conflicting. Im so thankful for your site and instructions. I just don’t know in which orders to do things. I need to know which prayers would be the most effective. I led my 11yo in a salvation prayer and will be leading my 10yo through it as well. Idk what type of prayer for my baby. I threw away every scary movie we owned. I want to anoint my home but idk if I should do that after I pray for them to leave my family. I love that your prayers are scriptual and powerful. I want to use every weapon the Lord’s provided. If you could get back to me I’d appreciate it so much
We are so sorry to hear about what’s going on with your family.

I pray this every night now. It has been amazing. The first night I prayed it, a dark spirit of lust came up in the middle of the night and tried to torment me. I rebuked it, and bound it. Every night since then has been incredibly peaceful and sweet, and my dreams have been dramatically different in a good way. It is as if the enemy just had that one final attempt at me in desperation, and is now banished from my dwelling with a demoralizing last failure hanging over it. Yay.
I love this prayer! I prayed this last night and had a good sleep. I will be saying this every night. Thank you Jesus!
I had the same understanding when I realized that I was dealing with human spirits when it didn’t respond to the name of Jesus. This prayer covers alot
Your prayers and COH prayers have helped me TREMENDOUSLY. I’ve had breakthrough after breakthrough waking and entering the throne room in faith. I have no words to describe the gratefulness I have for Dans time invested. Thank u Jesus for such an obedient servant. I’ve done 24hrs worth of breaking off junk and will continue doing more as the Lord walks me into my destiny. The blood of Jesus over these messages, with the protection of the promises in Psalm 91.
What do you mean COH Prayers? Can you post a link?
Effective and fervent prayers of the righteous avails much . So restful and peaceful …. the mind can be when in understanding of the scriptures I applied to deal with the mind troubling matters .
God be praised for the triumph of victory and the revelations knowledge in his word
Indeed this is a good prayer and a powerful one at that, But I want to highlight something the fact that there are people that have the gift of faith and don’t even know it whether they’re abusing it and using it for evil which is what this prayers about and some sense along with demonic forces or for good long comment made short sometimes it’s also good to minister to people with a gift of faith because they don’t even know what it is they actually think that they’re witches when actuality that is the gift of faith
at work !
Bless you Brother and your sweet family! Your prayers has help make me into a mighty warrior for the Lord. Since 2016 I have seen the difference in how I see who I am in Jesus through your prayers and your video teachings. Many testimonies I have because of you, so I honor you and know that what I do will be credited to your account. People see the change in me, they want to know how to get what I have, where do I go to church, who do I listen, who is my mentor? You are one of my mentors because you bear fruit, you have been tested and came out Faithful! Love you Brother!
I prayed this prayer first time last night.
Wow, I was surprised that my sleep time was in such a peace… I didn’t know that I have been attacked by sexual temptations almost every night…. I didn’t have it AT ALL. Highly recommended this prayer. This prayer is like a strong missile weapon in the spiritual realm! Thank you for equipping us as a soldier in the spiritual war-zone!! (which everybody is in!)
I & my wife both prayed last night, and for the first time after marriage last year, she slept undisturbed, no heaviness, and rested. Wow…Thank you Dan for developing & releasing such a mighty spiritual weapon for the body of Christ!!!!! I am happy!!
Blessings to you and your wife, Tai! ^_^
Thank you for the end notes and breakdown. I already know the prayers are powerful but now I have the understanding of why backed by scripture and your brilliant explanation. It gives it more authority and my voice more backbone when I truly understand. I’m so hungry for all these prayers to be broken down like that. I just can’t get enough teaching. I need more.
