CORPORATE WARFARE PRAYER
Put it in your Bible. Use it at least once every day. Husbands and wives, use it together. Parents and children, make good use of it. Home groups will powerfully profit from its use. God will lift churches that use it into the Holy of Holies, the place of the 100-fold. Elders who sit in the gate of the city will overcome every foe and solve every problem through its use.
Use it in conjunction with Kelley Varner’s book, “Corporate Anointing.” The two will complement each other (See Barnes and Noble [bn.com] for information on the writings of Kelley Varner.)
The “Watch of the Lord” by Mahesh and Bonnie Chavda (<amazon.com> provides information needed on this) also powerfully moves in this same spirit.
Remember – truth is like a diamond – many-faceted. Don’t get caught up with one aspect of truth and push it as a virtue until it becomes a vice – until the body becomes “all ear.” Remember that Israel had 12 tribes, each representing a major aspect of truth. When all 12 tribes walked in balance – no foe could overturn her.
See our web page <http://2rbetter.org> for the 12 tribes with the 12 corresponding embryonic revival principles that were birthed in 1948. God is bringing them into maturity and balance today.
The enclosed “Warfare Prayer” is one important aspect for God’s Last Day Revival.

CORPORATE WARFARE PRAYER – By Joe McIntyre
Day One. WARFARE: BASED ON REDEMPTION. Father, we thank You that You have redeemed us by the blood of Your Son, having purchased us out of the authority of darkness. We are redeemed from the hand of our enemies and because of the triumph of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Eternally Defeated One has no legal authority over us. We may serve You without fear all the days of our lives. The blood cancels all the Eternally Defeated One’s claims. All our iniquities, transgressions and sins are forgiven, blotted out and washed away by the blood of Jesus.
The Eternally Defeated One has no place in us, no power over us and no unsettled claims against us. The blood of Jesus settles all. We stand before You, Father God, in the Light, free from guilt, shame and condemnation, cleansed of all unrighteousness by this same glorious blood.
Day Two. WARFARE: BY REMOVING ALL GROUND FROM THE ENEMY. Father, by Your grace, we do not give place to the Eternally Defeated One. We choose to let all bitterness, wrath, anger, quarreling and evil speaking be put away from us. All faultfinding, talebearing, backbiting, gossiping and criticism fails to find a place in us. We also break any ungodly vows or inappropriate judgments we have made. We repent of any giving place to these things and renounce them. We choose to be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another as You, Father, in Christ have forgiven us. We are not ignorant of the Eternally Defeated One’s devices; we recognize and resist his attempts to cause strife and division and thereby gain a foothold in our midst. We stand in unity and love so that we might cause You to command the blessing on us. We give no place to the Eternally Defeated One.
Day Three. WARFARE: BASED ON OUR TRIUNE GOD. In our grace-given position of righteousness, we ask You to anoint us to pray and command in the Holy Spirit and with power. You have given us the use of the name of the Lord Jesus Christ to smash, pull down and destroy the works of the Eternally Defeated One. Thank You, Father, for the use of Jesus’ name.
We acknowledge our utter dependence upon You, Father, the Lord Jesus Christ and the indwelling Holy Spirit. We do not come against our enemies in our own righteousness of power. But as Your sons and daughters, in whom You delight, we say with Caleb of old that our enemies have become bread for us. You, our God, have put the fear of us upon them. He – the Spirit of the Living God – who is in us, is greater than the one in the world. We do not fear the Eternally Defeated One, his demons or demonically influenced men or women. We fear and reverence You, the Lord our God.
Day Four. WARFARE: BY CANCELLING FALSE PROCLAMATIONS. In the name and authority of our Lord Jesus Christ we take authority over all utterances voiced by false prophets and misguided saints. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ we break, smash and destroy all prayers, proclamations and curses released against us. All ungodly judgments we destroy in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. No weapon formed against us will prosper and every tongue that rises against us in judgment we do now condemn and render powerless in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Day Five. WARFARE: BY BREAKING CURSES. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ we break, smash, destroy, loose and dissolve any and all curses, charms, vexes, hexes, spells, jinxes, psychic powers, bewitchments, incantations, witchcraft, sorcery, ritual magic, New Age proclamations, Native American curses, voodoo curses, satanist curses or blood sacrifices sent against us corporately or individually. We loose the power of the Ultimate Blood Sacrifice against all related spirits assigned against us and command you to cease in your operations and stop in your maneuvers against us in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. We break all of your assignments in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Day Six. WARFARE: BECAUSE OF FULL AUTHORITY OVER THE ENEMY. We declare that all spirits assigned against us have no choice but to bow to the name of Jesus on our lips. We command our enemies to confess and acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord. The name of the Lord Jesus Christ is above every name.
All authority is in that name. Therefore we demand of those arrayed against us that you bow and acknowledge the Lordship of Christ. No enemy can stand before us all the days of our lives. This honor have all the saints of God. This is the written judgment on our enemies. We stand united in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ against our enemies.
Day Seven. WARFARE: BY INDWELLING RESURRECTION LIFE OF CHRIST. We thank You, our God and Father, that you are filling us corporately and individually with the Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus. Father, we thank you that you are pouring out upon us and within us the Resurrection Life of the Son of God. Thank you that you are unveiling to us the tremendous power of His resurrection. Thank you that you are flooding this Body with Divine Life. Thank you that you are pouring out the mighty Spirit that raised Christ from the dead within and upon us. The Uncreated, sinless, sickless, deathless Life of the Son of God is coming to us and filling us.
Thank you that you are quickening us according to Your Word, Father. We thank you for these things in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.
CONCLUSION: Providentially my wife Marie found this “Warfare Prayer” in her files, but had no idea how it got there. She suggested we use it in our congregation in 1998. It was such a blessing to us, that we shared it with our friends on our e-mail address list. Joe McIntyre responded by asking how his “prayer” came into our possession. Through this we learned the identity of the author, -- a good and treasured friend of over 10 years standing at that time.
Then in the Fall of 2000, The Rev. John Roddam of St. Luke’s in Seattle, with Pastor Joe McIntyre of “Word of His Grace Fellowship” laid hands on me, that God would give through me a “Corporate Destiny Revelation” for the Seattle/Tacoma Metroplex. In obedience to the answer to their Request, we with friends of Beth Chesed have formed a Production Team to produce 39 Corporate Prayers on the model of Pastor Joe’s “Corporate Warfare Prayer.” Added to his, this will make a total of 40. The first cycle of 12, based on the Feasts and Festivals of the Lord is now complete. We are presently engaged in producing 12 Corporate Prayers based on the 12 Embryonic Revival principles from God’s 1948 Visitation in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
Pray with and for us, for God is most exacting in His standards of working through us. Soon we trust to have all of these as an additional feature of our Website (http://2rbetter.org). Currently we have had but the 12 articles on these 12 Embryonic Revival Principles on this site. Now, by putting them into a Corporate Prayer Format, we trust that the united prayer of the body of Christ will bring them into maturity after 52 years. These will provide parameters of safety for the coming THIRD REFORMATION – namely – The Return of the Lord Jesus Christ as King of kings and Lord of lords as connected with the fulfillment of the Feast of Tabernacles (Sukkot).
A CRAFTED PRAYER:“Our Father, we thank You for speaking to many of us on behalf of our friend. Like King Hezekiah and Basilea Schlink, the word of the doctors and friends spelt the end. But You are God! And because of unfulfilled commissions, and because of the help Your servant can yet be to Your many churches – both city and local – we believe that he fits the pattern of Hezekiah and Basilea Schlink.
We hear Your Spirit whispering to our spirits similar words Jesus spoke concerning Lazarus – This illness is not unto death; it is for the glory of God, so that the Son of God may be glorified by means of it. We also hear Your words by the Spirit through Paul concerning apostles – We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair. THIS in the natural is our friend’s position, and we boldly apply these spiritual words to his position.
Just as Jesus humbled Himself unto death, and You, Father highly exalted him – so our friend has faced the reality and certainty of death from our human point of view. But Rees Howells through identification with a dying person accepted death on her behalf – but then found that Jesus had already taken death upon Himself! Just so, Jesus is conqueror of death for our friend. Jesus’ death applies to all of us. We need not die ahead of time as those who did not discern Jesus’ spiritual body. Our friend DISCERNS the members of Your spiritual body.
Therefore, because You bid us come and reason together with you from Scriptures and words of the Spirit, in boldness and with confidence we come to Your throne of grace in this time of need. We as his helpers unroof the roof and lower him at Your feet. Defeat the enemy! Overturn his counsels! Release our brother from premature death that he, like Hezekiah and Basilea Schlink, may fulfill the commissions You have allotted to him. In Jesus’ all-encompassing Name we pray! Amen.”
