Spirit Of Powerlessness: 20 Prayers Against It Now.

Listen to this article

What Is Powerlessness?

According to 1 Corinthians, 15:44, “…If there is a natural body, there is also a spiritual body.” So, before anything happens to your physical body it must first start with your spiritual body. For instance, Jacob fought with an angel (spiritual) before he was blessed with wealth (physical) and he did not have the spirit of powerlessness. Remember as a Christian you can’t make the mistake of being powerless, or showing signs of Powerlessness or neutral i.e., neither hot nor cold in terms of spiritual matters because the devil will destroy you if not kill you (John 10:10).  You might be wondering how to know if you are experiencing spiritual powerlessness.


You could be experiencing spiritual Powerlessness if, of late you discovered that you are no longer are interested in spiritual matters things like praying, fasting, reading the word of God, and even giving. This is a sign that your lamp like the ten virgins mentioned in Matthew 25:8-9 is running out of oil to keep you going (and you are in spiritual powerlessness). Refill your spiritual lamp by starting to do all these things again and by doing so you will eliminate the spirit of powerlessness.

As Christians, we should start to behave like Paul in 1 Corinthians 2:4, he said that My speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom but with a demonstration of the Spirit’s power. The devil doesn’t understand any other language except the language of power. So, we shouldn’t exhibit traits that show powerlessness.

Brethren before you start praying these prayers ask yourself a few questions:

Who speaks into my spiritual life, could it be that he is an agent of the devil? Who are my closest spiritual friends can I say they are true Christians? What spiritual things am I keeping in my house do they please Jesus? What am I feeding my spirit with daily and are they attracting the spirit of powerlessness.

If after some reflection you discover that there are some Witchcraft items in your possession, you need to destroy them according to Acts 19:19. Ask yourself if there are some habits you need to give up, things like fornication, adultery, drinking, etc do so because they attract the spirit of powerlessness.

Do you have bad friends, if you do consider leaving them (1 Corinthians 15:33)? Have you given up praying, fasting, giving and even reading the word of God? if so then start doing it.

power of God is good

Let’s start by:

Praise and worship

Start by praising and worshipping for about 10 minutes.


O Lord my Father, thank you for bringing me this far and for all Your benefits towards me. I thank you for the precious gift of Salvation. I thank you for always been there whenever I call on you, and for your protection, provision, and strength upon my life

Repent and confess your sins

Confess your sins one by one ( outside marriage, abortion, or other forms of bloodshed, worship of false gods, family altars) Mention them by name, especially sexual sins. And ask GOD for forgiveness and mercy. For those sins one by one. Believe that the LORD has forgiven you as He has promised in His Word. Please note that the Holy Spirit will remind you of unrepented sins. You need to repent of them all if you want to see results in this program.

Plead the Blood of Jesus (before you start praying these prayers).

Then start by confessing out loud these Scriptures To help you fight against the Spirit of powerlessness.

Ephesians 4:27-32 (Don’t give the Devil a chance. If you used to rob, you must stop robbing and start working, in order to earn an honest living for yourself and to be able to help the poor. Do not use harmful words, but only helpful words, the kind that builds up and provides what is needed, so that what you say will do good to those who hear you. 

And do not make God’s Holy Spirit sad; for the Spirit is God’s mark of ownership on you, a guarantee that the Day will come when God will set you free. Get rid of all bitterness, passion, and anger. No more shouting or insults, no more hateful feelings of any sort. Instead, be kind and tender-hearted to one another, and forgive one another, as God has forgiven you through Christ.)

Acts 19:19 (And many of those who had practiced magical arts collected their books and [throwing book after book on the pile] began burning them in front of everyone. They calculated their value and found it to be 50,000 pieces of silver.)

Acts 4:31 (And when they had prayed, the place where they were meeting together was shaken [ which was a sign of God’s presence]; and they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak the word of God with boldness and courage.)

We have a choice to make, because we are powerless against the forces of evil on our own.  We need the power of God in our lives which is greater than any power. The first step in finding the life that Jesus died to give us is to admit that we are powerless on our own and we should admit that our lives are unmanageable without Christ. Secondly, we should invite Jesus to rule and reign in our hearts and seek His guidance in all our ways. Third, we should resolve that we will follow His guidance in both good times and trying times. 


Prayer is one way we deal with our powerlessness. It’s our platform for living a life of confession and repentance. It helps us to constantly change the way we see God, realigning our views of Him to what He has revealed to us in His Word. Prayer is a way we can release control, embrace our humanity and powerlessness and cry out to the One who has the ultimate power. Powerlessness has destroyed many Christians so do something about it today!
