Deliverance Through Prayer
19 For I know that this will turn out for my deliverance through your prayer and the supply of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, 20 according to my earnest expectation and hope that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but with all boldness, as always, so now also Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death.Philippians 1:19–20 (NKJV)

The Scarecrow Factor
Their gods are like helpless scarecrows in a cucumber field!Jeremiah 10:5 (NLT)
They cannot speak, and they need to be carried because they cannot walk.
Do not be afraid of such gods, for they can neither harm you nor do you any good.”
Prayer of Deliverance
1 In You, O Lord, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness.
2 Bow down Your ear to me, deliver me speedily; Be my rock of refuge, a fortress of defense to save me.
3 For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, lead me and guide me.
4 Pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, for You are my strength.
5 Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.
6 I have hated those who regard useless idols; but I trust in the Lord.
7 I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, for You have considered my trouble; You have known my soul in adversities,
8 And have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a wide place.
9 Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; my eye wastes away with grief, yes, my soul and my body!
10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing; My strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones waste away.
11 I am a reproach among all my enemies, but especially among my neighbors, and am repulsive to my acquaintances; Those who see me outside flee from me.
12 I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.
13 For I hear the slander of many; Fear is on every side; While they take counsel together against me, they scheme to take away my life.Psalm 31:1-15 (NKJV)
14 But as for me, I trust in You, O Lord; I say, “You are my God.”
15 My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.
