When I feel uneasy or afraid I like to play some of my favorite worship songs. One in particular is Holy Spirit. The song just fills the atmosphere and makes the room more peaceful. Also singing the songs out loud are great. Here are  a few of my favorites:

Holy Spirit- Kari Jobe ft. Cody Carnes

At the Cross- Chris Tomlin

Anchor- Hillsong

There is Power- Lincoln Brewster

Overcome- Jeremy Camp

Quoting scripture out loud to the enemy is always going to give you victory. If Jesus quoted scripture to the devil when he was tempted, shouldn’t we? But in order to quote scripture you have to know it. Have a verse to meditate on and memorize everyday. That way you can bring it up at a moments notice when the enemy tries to attack you with his lies. Here are a couple of scriptures that I love to say out loud when I feel attacked:

For God has not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

2 Timothy 1:7

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?

Psalm 56:3-4

He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust!”

Psalm 91:1-2

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us.

Romans 8:18

I use to feel like I had to keep things to myself. I didn’t want others to worry and I thought I could work it out between me and God alone. Not to say you can’t, but there is a mighty power associated with coming together in prayer.

For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am among them. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.

Matthew 18:19-20

When I came to my family about what I was going through they prayed over me and it made the biggest difference in my life. A change happened that I couldn’t seem to make on my own. If you can’t go to your family then find a trusted friend or mentor and ask them to pray with you. When you pray with someone over a dark area in your life, by bringing someone else in you are actually shedding light into that dark place. That person can now hold you accountable and help you in the future with their prayers.

Therefore, confess your sin to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.

James 5:16

I can’t say enough just how important this is. The Holy Spirit was sent to abide with us forever. Jesus even said that it was better for him to leave so that the Holy Spirit could come. (John 16:7) He can relinquish power and help you in your Christian walk. He is a friend and comforter in times of trouble. Here are some verses on praying in the spirit:

Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words. And he who searches hearts knows what is the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for the saints according to the will of God.

Romans 8:26-27

For if I pray in a tongue, my spirit prays but my mind is unfruitful. What am I to do? I will pray with my spirit, but I will pray with my mind also; I will sing praise with my spirit, but I will sing with my mind also.

1 Corinthians 14:14-15

For one who speaks in a tongue speaks not to men but to God; for no one understands him, but he utters mysteries in the Spirit.

1 Corinthians 14:2

Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation. The spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.

Matthew 26:41

There is power in the name of Jesus. Especially during a spiritual attack. I know this because of my own experience. If you want to read more on my testimony and how saying His name saved me during an attack then click Here, or find the article titled, Power in the Name of Jesus.

The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous man runs into it and is safe.

Proverbs 18:10
