Elizabeth City, NC refers to itself as the Harbor of Hospitality.  Church of the Redeemer serves as a Spiritual Harbor of Hospitality for all who come through its doors.  We hope that the same hospitality God shows to us in Jesus Christ overflows to all who visit the church and to the wider community.  In our life together, we emphasize the authority of Scripture, the presence and ministry of the Holy Spirit, and the family of faith. Jesus’ invitation urging people to “Come” echoes in all of the services and ministries at Church of the Redeemer.   Jesus explained to his followers that whatever we do to even the least of our brothers and sisters we do unto him.  By serving each other, other Christians and those in the world that God is calling, we believe we are feeding Jesus, clothing Jesus, healing Jesus, visiting Jesus and blessing Jesus everyday. We believe the greatest hospitality we can show to people is to lift Jesus up that He might draw all to Himself through the preaching of the gospel and faithful administration of the sacraments.  We rely on the empowering of the Holy Spirit and the gracious gifts for ministry he distributes to all who are saved through Jesus. You are invited, welcomed and encouraged to come and experience Jesus’ love in our spiritual home. Church of the Redeemer, 207 Hwy 343 South, Camden, NC 27921, 252-337-7177 Map of location.

Spiritual Warfare Prayers

These are three prayers that can be helpful in engaging in spiritual warfare for yourselves and others.

A Prayer of Submitting to God and Resisting the Enemy

Father I come to you in the name of Jesus. I submit to you and resist Satan and all the powers of darkness. I ask you clothe me in the full armor of God.

I place upon my head the helmet of salvation by which I take my thoughts captive to the Lord Jesus Christ and submit my mind to the control and rule of the Holy Spirit that it would be full of life and peace. I reject the thoughts, accusations and lies of the enemy who comes to condemn and criticize. I reject thoughts of self-hatred, failure, pride and other sinful attitudes.

I place upon my heart the breastplate of righteousness. I clothe myself in the perfection of Jesus. I am the righteousness of God in Christ Jesus. I fasten about me the belt of truth and pray that your Holy Spirit would lead me into all truth.
As shoes on my feet, I secure my footing with the readiness of the gospel of peace and of the kingdom of God and Jesus Christ. I stand firm on your word against the storms and oppression of this world. Help me to stand firm against the anxieties of this life, fear of loss and the temptations and delusions of this world.

I take in my hand the shield of faith by which I shall block all of the attacks of the enemy. Help me to walk by faith knowing that you are an ever-present help to me and that your promises are all “Yes” to me through Jesus.

I take in my other hand the sword of Spirit, the word of God that is sharp and double-edged and shall never pass away. Inspire me to speak your powerful, life-giving word into my circumstances, against the enemy, into my own mind and life. Help me to speak blessings over my life and over my loved ones.

Father help me to rejoice in the Lord always. I receive the joy of the Lord that is my strength. Lord send and empower your angels to minister to me and to be a shield around me. Father protect me from evil and rebuke every messenger of evil from me. Let the light of your face shine upon me and fill me with your Holy Spirit, his fruit and gifts.

Dear Lord, make my home a peaceful, secure, restful and godly dwelling place. Bless and place your hand upon my family. We belong to you through the mighty name of Jesus. Amen

Prayer for Protection

Heavenly Father, I praise and thank you for all you have given me. Please cover me with the protective, precious blood of your Son, Jesus Christ, and increase your Holy Spirit in me with His gifts of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, hunger for prayer, guidance and discernment to help me know your will and surrender to it more completely.

Father please heal my negative emotions and any wounds in my heart and spirit. Send the sword of your Holy Spirit to sever and break all spells, curses, hexes, voodoo and all negative genetic, inter-generational and addictive material, past, present or to come, known or unknown, against me, my relationships and family, finances, possessions and ministry. Father I forgive, and I ask forgiveness for my sins and failings. I ask that my whole person, body and mind, heart and will, soul and spirit, memory and emotions, attitudes and values lie cleansed, renewed and protected by the most precious blood of your Son Jesus Christ.

Dear Holy Spirit please fill up any void in me to overflowing with your presence and great love. All this Father I pray in the name of Jesus Christ by the guidance of your Holy Spirit. Amen

(Say to spiritual forces of evil) In the name, power, blood and authority of Jesus Christ I bind and break the power and effect in or around me of any and all evil spirits who are trying to harm me in any way and I command these spirits and their companion spirits in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit to leave me peacefully and quietly and go immediately and directly where Jesus commands you and never again return to me or my family. Amen
