Overcome With Christ

We are overcomers in Christ Jesus and we must live in His victory! Use this prayer to increase your faith in the One who holds you in the palm of His hand. Trust Him with the lives of your loved ones. Believe and stand firm on His living Word!


Lord Jesus Christ, we come before you right now, proclaiming your honor, glory, and power. We give you praise for who you are. We love you, Lord God, and we cry out for your peace. Come, Lord Jesus!

Lord God, you have called us into righteousness and our children you have also called into righteousness. You offered to take our hand and daily walk with us, but we would not. Instead we turned away and chose  idols, looking to other people and things to satisfy our hunger. After much seeking and many mistakes, we desire to return to you. You are the one true God and you deserve all our praise and honor (Isaiah 42).

God, you said you had plans for us, plans that would prosper us and give us hope. But Lord, we chose poorly and now we are desperate for you. We are crying out to you, Father God. You promised to listen, Lord; hear us, we pray, and answer our call. We turn to you and seek you with our whole heart. We want to know you more and learn from you (Jeremiah 29:11-14).

Jesus Christ, remind us that You are who You say You are—the Great I AM. Your path leads to the Heavenly Father as you are the Way, the Truth, and the Life (John 14:6). Through the cross, you defeated sin and death and with your resurrection, you gained life eternal for all who would believe on your mighty name—JESUS. Forgive us, Lord Jesus, and free us from the things that bind us. Your Word says when you set us free, we are free indeed. We trust you as we hold tightly to your teachings (John 8:31-36).

Holy Spirit, comfort us in our distress with your peace. Help us when we doubt your presence and your word (“I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!” Mark 9:24). Remind us of the price you paid for our sins; your victory covers us! When we repent, seek with our whole heart, and believe on your name, we will walk as overcomers in Christ Jesus. You’ve given us authority to overcome evil and we take authority over our life situations in Your name. Assist us, Lord God, in overcoming evil with good (Luke 10:19,  John 1:5, John 16:33, Romans 8:31-39, Romans 12:21, 1 Corinthians 15:57, 1 John 5:4-5).   

We stand firm on your holy Word, mighty Savior, and cling to your promises. All your promises are “Yes” in the name of Jesus. And so in Jesus’ name, we give you thanks and praise, with a loud “AMEN” (2 Corinthians 1:20). Come, Holy Spirit, and let it be so!


They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you,” declares the Lord. Jeremiah 1:19 (NIV)
I will make you a wall to this people, a fortified wall of bronze; they will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you to rescue and save you,” declares the Lord. Jeremiah 15:20 (NIV)
And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. Matthew 16:18 (NIV)
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5 (NIV)
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 (NIV)

But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57 (NIV)

For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God. 2 Corinthians 1:20 (NIV)

I write to you, dear children, because you know the Father. I write to you, fathers, because you know him who is from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong, and the word of God lives in you, and you have overcome the evil one. 1 John 2:14 (NIV)
You, dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:4 (NIV)
....for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. 1 John 5:4 (NIV)
Who is it that overcomes the world? Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God. 1 John 5:5 (NIV)
