Prayer for discernment of spirits

Heavenly Father, I approach Your throne of grace and mercy, leaving my burdens at the foot of the cross. Father today I request that Your Holy Spirit draws near as You give me discernment in all that I do.

Proverbs 3:5-6 
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways submit to him and he will make your paths straight. 

You are the God that sees, that hears and will deliver me from the grasp of the enemy.


Open the eyes of my heart, Oh Lord, so that I may be able to identify the plans of the enemy. Guide me to make the right decisions in my life as I follow through with Your will. Raise me up, Lord, so that I would not fall by the wayside. Take full complete control of every aspect of my life.

1 Kings 3:9
So give Your servant an understanding heart to judge Your people to discern between good and evil. For who is able to judge this great people of Yours?

Romans 12:2
And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.

Divine Wisdom

Father, nothing in this world escapes Your sight. You are the God that sees, that hears and will deliver me from the grasp of the enemy.

Invoke divine wisdom within me so that I would not be a slave to my flesh. For the flesh is weak, but the spirit is willing.

Psalm 119:66
Teach me good discernment and knowledge, For I believe in Your commandments.

Hebrews 5:14
But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.


Teach me to walk in obedience while I stand firm on You, my rock and fortress. I pray that the discernment that I seek awakens within me as I remain faithful to You, my Lord and Savior.

In Jesus’ Mighty name I pray, Amen!

Teach me to walk in obedience while I stand firm on You, my rock and fortress.

Father God, please forgive me even as I ask for Your forgiveness. I receive Your forgiveness and I choose to forgive myself for all misuse and abuse of the gift of discernment.

Lord, please blind all powers of darkness that have utilized my third eye in all its various dimensions and in all my different parts that are trapped, lost, and enslaved in the dimensions.

Lord please cut off all watchers connections that watchers have with my third eye to gain information and monitor my movements. Lord please remove all evil powers associated with my third eye.

And Lord, please assign angels to remove the third eye from all parts of my being, in all its various dimensions, in the past, in the present, and in the future.

Lord please fill me with Your presence and replace evil with good. I remove all occult influences and pressures over my life to try to attempt to plant and to activate the third eye from now and forever.

Lord Jesus I receive the eyes of Your Spirit, and ask that I will only see what You want me to see. I ask that all the strategies of the enemy will be exposed by divine revelations of Your will.

Lord please open my eyes to see Your power and glory and all Your glories in heaven.
Father God, thank You for giving me the gift of discernment so that I can have complete knowledge of Your will in all manners of life. Thank You for spiritual wisdom and understanding to apply all that You’ve shown me. Thank You for teaching me how to live a life that will always honor and please You. And Father God, thank You for giving me the discernment to produce a good harvest, every time, in all my investments and in every manner of life.

Father God, thank You for showing me how to receive Your resources in all situations, with all kinds of people. Father, thank You for letting me know Your divine timing, Your opportunities, and Your open doors to supply all that is necessary in my life—in all spiritual, physical, and emotional abundance, so that all I do and all I say, will be a sweet smelling aroma and sacrifice that is acceptable and pleasing to You.

Father God, I thank You. You help me to begin to understand the incredible greatness of Your power to all who believe in You, the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated Him, at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms.

God thank You for giving us a way to access Your incredible wealth of grace and kindness even as we walk in unity.

Father God, thank You for showing by discernment to walk in love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self control. Father God, thank You that there are no limitations to all You have called me to do.

Father God, please give me the discernment to receive the right spiritual impartation from the specific people that You have sent into my life. Give me the wisdom to flee, escape, avoid, and refuse any wrong impartation from the servants of satan. Please teach me to recognise all false servants from afar, even at the sound of their voices. Please protect my ears, my eyes, and my five spiritual senses from the assault of the enemy camp. Lord, please surround me with the songs of deliverance, with the presence of Your Holy Spirit, so that even when darkness comes, it shall not come near me.

Father God, You have given me the ability to hear the voice of Your Spirit. I will not follow the voice of the stranger, but I will follow You all the rest of my life. Thank You that I have the ability to hear Your voice in all my decision making—for my family, for my work, my ministry, investments, business, studies, relationships, marriage, church. May all I that I do and say pertain to life, be filled with life, release life, and be life-giving. Lord, thank You that I can hear Your voice clearly and sharply like the prophets of old.

Father God, thank You for showing me the crisis of the land rather than letting me become a victim to it. I will become a protector and encourager of those in need. Help me flee from all works of darkness upon the land and economy. Secure my properties and all my possessions by Your Spirit.
