To the One, True and Living, Most High and Creator of the Universe, today I bow in worship and praise before You. Today I will rest in Your unlimited power and claim Your divine protection for my family, my finances, my home, my spirit, soul and body. I surrender myself completely in every area of my life to You. I resist all the workings of the enemy, that would hinder me and my family from best serving You. I address myself only to You, the One, True and Living God/Goddess who has all power and control over everything. I claim the power of Maat for my family, my home, my finances, my spirit, soul and body. Because of my trust in You, I declare that I am blessed, and any and all negative activity that I may encounter is subject to Your omnipotent will and purpose in my life.
Furthermore, in my own life today, by the power of Maat, I resist any strongholds that have been formed against me and my family. I resist any strongholds against my mind. Instead, I surrender my mind to You, and I affirm that You have not given me the spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind. Therefore, I resist the spirit of fear, and I refuse to fear....I refuse to doubt...I refuse to worry because I have power over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt me.
Greater is the power of Maat in me, than the negative energies that are in the world. I claim complete and absolute victory over isfet, the forces of darkness, and I pronounce peace, joy, and prosperity upon every member of my family.
Almighty One, I resist any strongholds formed against my emotions today and I give my emotions to You. I resist any strongholds formed against my body today and I give my body to You. I realize that my body is a temple for Maat, therefore I yield myself completely to You that You would have Your way in my life today. Almighty One, I surrender my life and my possessions to You. I refuse to worry or be discouraged today. By the power of Maat, today I will not hate, envy or show disrespect or any bitterness toward my brothers and sisters.
Almighty One, open my eyes and show me the areas of my life that do not please You, and give me the strength, grace and wisdom to remove any activity that would prevent a perfect fellowship with You. Work in me to cleanse me from anything that would give my enemies a foothold against me. I claim in every way the victory and power that You have given me in my life. With thanksgiving, I pray this prayer in the name of the One Whose names are hidden, and I welcome all the power of Maat and of our Ancestors in my life today.
