I Glory in the Cross

Heavenly Father, come and open these weary eyes that I might see
The awesome price You graciously paid for someone as wicked as me.
In the name of Jesus Christ I proudly now take my stand
Against evil principalities and powers in high places throughout my land.

I am thankful for the armor You have given to me for this day.
The girdle of truth, the breastplace of righteousness; thank you I say.
The sandals of peace, the helmet of salvation is mine as I kneel at night to pray.
I lift up the shield of faith and take sword which is the Word of God to fight day by day.

I thank You that Jesus Christ spoiled all principalities and powers on Calvary.
I glory in the cross and the blood that was shed for me.
He made a show of satan openly and triumphed over his powers for all eternity.
Let there be no ground for satan to gain a foothold at all against me.

I am thankful that the weapons of our warfare are not carnal for my eyes to see
But mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds of any degree.
I tear down the strongholds of Satan and I smash his plans as I now draw the line.
He has not given me a spirit of fear, but of love, power and sound mind.

I glory in the cross and I now cover myself with the blood of the Holy Spirit today.
I yield my life to Jesus and I refuse to be discouraged for that is not God’s way.
You are the God of all hope and I will stand upon Your every word.
I claim Victory over all satanic forces and all demons voices heard.

Yes I glory in the cross and God’s redeeming love.
I long for the day I will stand beside Him in the heavens above.
I will glory in the cross when this earthly body will suddenly become new.
I will glory in the cross when I walk hand in hand with You.
