THE WRITING ON THE WALL

The WRITING ON THE WALL refers to Chapter 5 of the Book of Daniel in the Bible when King Belshazzar sees the words “Mene, Mene, Tekel, Upharsin” written on a wall by a visible hand – the HAND OF GOD. Belshazzar summons Daniel to interpret the writing, which Daniel translates as “Numbered, ended, weighed, divided.”

Living Bible (TLB)

Daniel 5:25-28

24-25 And so God sent those fingers to write this message: ‘Mene,’ ‘Mene,’ ‘Tekel,’ ‘Parsin.’

26 “This is what it means:

“Mene means ‘numbered’—God has numbered the days of your reign, and they are ended.

27 “Tekel means ‘weighed’—you have been weighed in God’s balances and have failed the test.

28 “Parsin means ‘divided’—your kingdom will be divided and given to the Medes and Persians.”

WARFARE PRAYER by Victor Matthews, edited by Miriam Jacob

Lord, I worship and praise you. 
I cover myself with the Blood of Jesus to protect me. 
I surrender myself completely and unreservedly to You. 
I fight against all the attacks of satan on my life. 
I take refuge in the Living God.

I am covered by the blood of Jesus Christ, shed for me on Calvary. 
Lord, I worship You and praise You. 
You are worthy to receive all glory and honor and praise. 
My allegiance is only to You.
Thank You for loving me and sending Your only Son, 
Jesus Christ into the world to die for my sins. 
Jesus Christ bought me with His blood.
Through Him, You forgave my sins.
You adopted me into your family; 
You assumed my responsibility; 
You gave me eternal life; 
You clothed me in the perfect righteousness of Jesus Christ.
I am now justified in Him. 
In Him, you made me complete.
You gave Yourself to me in love. 
Open my eyes to see how great You are.
I enjoy Your perfect provision for this day. 
The Lord Jesus Christ won the victory for me on the Cross.
I am resurrected in Christ.
I am seated with Him in the heavenlies. 
I recognize by faith that all evil spirits and satan himself are under my feet. 
I declare in Your name that Satan and his evil spirits are subject to me.

I am thankful for Your Armor to protect me. 
I put on the Girdle of Truth, 
the Breastplate of Righteousness, 
the Sandals of Peace, 
and the Helmet of Salvation. 
I lift up the Shield of Faith against 
all the fiery darts of the enemy;
I take in my hand the Sword of the Spirit, the Word of God. 
I use Your Word against all evil forces in my life. 
I put on Your Armor, and depend completely upon You. 
Jesus Christ triumphed over all evil forces in Himself. 
I claim His victory for my life today. 
I reject all the insinuations, accusations, and temptations of satan. 
I affirm that the Word of God is true.
I live today in the light of God’s Word. 
I live in obedience to You 
and in fellowship with Yourself. 
Open my eyes and wash me clean. 
Cleanse me of everthing that gives satan a foothold against me. 
You are my Father, and I am Your child.
I welcome the ministry of the Holy Spirit.
By faith, I depend on You.
I die to my old self.
I claim the victory of the crucifixion of Christ to cleanse me. 
I put on the new man and claim the victory of the resurrection 
to live above sin. 
I put on the new nature with Christ’s love. 
I cast off fear and put on the new nature with courage. 
I cast off all weakness and put on the new nature with strength. 
I put on the new nature with its righteousness, purity, and honesty. 
I trust You to apply this in my daily life. 
I claim the victory of the ascension and glorification of Jesus Christ.
All principalities and powers are subject to Him. 
I am victorious in Christ over all the enemies of my soul. 
Blessed Holy Spirit, fill me and use me. 
Come into my life, and cast out every foe. 
Thank You for the expression of Your will for my life shown in Your Word. 
I claim all the will of God for today. 
Thank You for blessing me with all spiritual blessings 
in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. 
You gave me a living hope by the resurrection of Jesus Christ. 
I can live filled with the Spirit of God with love and joy and peace, with long-suffering, gentleness and goodness, with meekness, faithfulness, and self-control in my life.
This is Your will for me. 
I won’t allow Satan and his evil spirits to rob me of the will of God. 
I hold up the Shield of Faith against all the accusations, distortion and insinuations that Satan puts into my mind. 
I claim the fullness of the will of God for my life today. 
I completely surrender myself to You as a living sacrifice. 
I am not conformed to this world. 
I am transformed by the renewing of my mind.
Show me Your will and allow me to walk in all the fullness of Your will today. 
The weapons of our warfare are not carnal 
but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds, 
to the casting down of imagination and every high thing 
that exalts itself against the knowledge God, 
and to bring every thought into obedience to the Lord Jesus Christ. 
In my own life, I tear down the strongholds of Satan 
and smash the plans of Satan formed against me. 
I tear down the strongholds of Satan against my mind, 
and I surrender my mind to You, blessed Holy Spirit. 
I affirm that You have not given me the spirit of fear, 
but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. 
I break and smash the strongholds of Satan 
formed against my emotions today 
and I give my emotions to you. 
I smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my will today, 
I give my will to You and choose to make the right decisions of faith. 
I smash the strongholds of Satan formed against my body today, 
I give my body to You recognizing that I am your temple. 
I rejoice in Your mercy and goodness. 
I pray that You will strengthen and enlighten me. 
Show me how Satan hinders, tempts, lies and distorts the truth in my life. 
Enable me to please You. 
Enable me to be aggressive in prayer and faith. 
Enable me to be aggressive mentally, 
to think about and practice Your Word, 
and to give You Your rightful place in my life. 
I cover myself with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ 
and pray that You, blessed Holy Spirit, will bring all the work of the crucifixion, 
resurrection, glorification, and Pentecost into my life today. 
I surrender myself to You. 
I refuse to be discouraged. 
You are the God of all hope. 
You proved Your power by resurrecting Jesus Christ from the dead, 
and I claim this victory over all the satanic forces in my life. 
I pray in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ with thanksgiving. Amen.

About Dr. Victor Matthews



Dr. Victor Matthews

In 1945, with a diploma in Bible from Simpson Bible Institute, Pastor Victor Matthews continued his education at the Grand Rapids Baptist Bible Institute where he remained in various roles for 45 years. 

 While teaching full-time, he earned an A.B from Calvin College and a Th.M from Calvin Seminary. In the mid-1960's he completed the residency requirements for the Doctor of Sacred Theology (S.T.D.) degree from Chicago Lutheran Theological Seminary. 

Dr. Matthews taught courses in apologetics, biblical studies and theology while personally mentoring numerous future pastors and church leaders and is perhaps best remembered for his exceptional ability to teach students to think critically and develop a Christian worldview.  Students also remember him for his copious notes, extensive outlines and his "just one sentence more..." 

Dr. Matthews was a quintessential teacher, a gifted pastor and counselor. He held a number of interim pastorates and spoke regularly at conferences, seminars and study groups. 

In the late 1960's, Dr. Matthews had a new vision for ministry. So began the Thursday Evening Bible Class. Attendance increased rapidly and before long grew to an average of 250 people. Dr. Matthews taught the class until his retirement in 1989. The Thursday Evening Bible Class continues today as a free gift of the Grand Rapids Theological Seminary. 

Anyone who attended one of Dr. Matthews' classes or Bible studies is familiar with his "study guides" or handouts, which provided a detailed outline of the material and the corresponding scripture verses and references. Many attendees and students have kept copies of the study guides and many have used them as a basis for their own teaching. Included on his website are over 400 of these study guides on a wide variety of topics. 

Dr. Matthews wrote numerous church and ministry publications including Confessions to a Counselor, Growth in Grace and Personal Success: The Promise of God (included on his website). 

He was also recognized as a leading expert on spiritual warfare due to his seminars and writings including his famous "Warfare Prayer." 

Dr. Matthews' contribution goes far beyond what he has done in the classroom: 
it reaches to those who have been taught by his students, 
to those for whom he has spent hours counseling (and praying for) 
and to those whose lives have been changed because of his devotion to the Lord Jesus, 
his study of the Word of God and the personal example of his life.

Authority in the Spirit for Spiritual Warfare

I take authority over every satanic and demonic force, according to Your promise in the Word, that whatever we bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, I bind the works of darkness, in the name of Jesus. I render them dismised, defeated, and destroyed, in Jesus' name. I join forces with you in the spirit to unseat every principality, every power, and every ruler of darkness assigned by Hell, presently seated in a high place over your life. I use the sword of the Lord to execute and terminate every demonic spirit and satanic force oppressing you, in the name of Jesus. I slay every demon and cancel their assignment over your life, in the name of Jesus. I call forth the fire of God to rain down upon every demonic agent sent from hell to frustrate the purpose of God for your Life. I declare victory over You and your family!
