Paul Cox is one of the most insightful people I know who possesses the gift we call the gift of “discernment.” He can truly walk up to a person and know what is attacking them. Beyond that, he knows how to pull it off of them as well.
I’ve gone down to California a few times to get ministry and it’s been so very helpful, I can hardly put it into words. We are all attacked by the enemy of course, so this is NOT unusual. Thank God for people like Paul Cox.
This is a great prayer to recite for the New Year. It will help tear down those things which can hinder us from receiving the fullness of the abundant life God has for us. I would encourage you to speak it out loud by yourself or even with a group of people – declaring this prayer out loud together. Believe me, it will change the atmosphere – it’s that powerful!
The following “Prayer to Release Us Into Abundant Life” was written by Paul Cox last year in October 2008 while in Australia:
Prayer to Release Us Into Abundant Life
I repent for all those in my generational line who blamed God for wronging them and blamed Him for surrounding them with His net (Job 19:6-26).
I repent for all those in my generational line for blocking and walling up their way and plunging their path into darkness.
I repent for all those in my generational line for blaming God for bringing them into shame by stripping them of their glory and removing their crown from their head.
I repent for all those in my generational line who blamed God for destroying them and demolishing them on every side thus destroying their hope and finishing them.
I repent for all those in my generational line who blamed God for being their enemy and blaming God for being furious with them and sending troops against them or troops to build up pathways to attack them and to camp all around their bodies and dwelling places.
I repent for all those in my generational line for having a fearful and unbelieving heart that caused them to depart from the way of holiness. I ask for the restoration of the ancient path where gladness and joy overtake us. I embrace my birthright to walk knowing the Lord.
I repent for all those in my generational line for ungodly wisdom where we have been operating out of our futile mindsets where we tried to work things out for ourselves. I choose, Lord, to work out of Your knowledge of understanding, wisdom, and discernment. I choose to work with You, Lord, to change my ways so that I can walk the ancient paths established before the Fall. I choose to walk in Your healing and allow Your strength which flows from Your life giving water (Isaiah 35).
I repent for myself and for all those in my generational line who used their God given physical and spiritual senses in ungodly ways and chose to operate only from their natural mind. Lord, would You break off all the iniquity that flowed from those decisions to ignore Your mind, heart, and will. Lord would You also remove all iniquity off of my God-given senses.
I ask You Lord to restore my ability to use all of my senses to discern Your mind, heart and Your will.
I repent for all those in my generational line who blamed God for removing friends, family, and employees from them and for turning people against them so that they are despised and hated to the point of death.
I repent for all those in my generational line who blamed God’s hand for striking them and persecuting them.
I repent for all those in my generational line who wished that their accusations against God and their suffering could be recorded forever in stone.
Lord, I repent for all those in my generational line for not looking for Your path and Your ways. I repent for not being willing to walk on Your path and therefore finding no rest for my soul (Jeremiah 6:16).
I repent for all those in my generational line who believed that God was withholding good from them and believed that they could become like God, knowing good and evil.
I repent for all those in my generational line who rejected the law of the Lord and the testimony of His Spirit, departing from His wisdom and truth and entering the kingdom of their own soul (Psalm 19:7).
I repent for those who relied on the knowledge of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. I repent for those who relied on their own thinking.
I repent for all those in my generational line who forsook the Lord, the Fountain of Living Water and created for themselves broken cisterns that could hold no water (Jeremiah 2:13).
I reject the receiving of the seed of satan in our minds that began with the fall of man when we believed the lie that we could become like God.
I repent for rejecting our birthright of being children of the Most High God and relying upon Him.
I reject conceiving from satan’s evil seed mischief, trouble, and the preparation of deception which birthed iniquity and evil intent in our generational line (Job 15:35).
Lord would You remove and seal the access the enemy gained in the womb to take us into ungodly heavenly places.
Lord would You remove and restore by the Blood of Jesus any elemental part of me, inheritance and birthright that is trapped in the second heaven or heavenly places. Lord, please close the ungodly doors to the second heaven.
I repent for all those in my family line who relied upon the natural wisdom of man and rejected the Spirit of God (I Corinthians 2:15). I choose to rely on the precepts of truth and the Spirit of God to give me the mind of Christ to direct my mind on the righteous pathway.
I reject the wisdom of man and I repent for the pride in my family line that saw the wisdom of God as foolishness. I claim the right to choose the womb of My Father, Yahweh, who through His Son, Jesus Christ, called me justified and glorified me before the foundation of the earth and before the elemental spirits were created.
I claim that my spiritual birthright is that I am conceived in love (Ephesians 1:4), that I have been given the Spirit of God who reveals wisdom to me (I Corinthians 2:10), that I have been given spiritual eyes in my heart to see the riches of His glorious inheritance (Ephesians 1:8). I claimed that I am being formed in the image of His glorious Son. I reject the seed of satan and I reject my position as a child of the father of lies and murder (John 8:44). I ask You Abba Father to close the eyes that were open when Adam and Eve partook of the tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil.
I renounce and reject any ungodly rights or authority that was given the soul to direct my mind along ungodly pathways.
I agree with God’s original plan that all spiritual wisdom of good and evil originates from God’s throne and is revealed to my spirit. I agree that the Holy Spirit has permission to direct my spirit and to lead my soul and body. I receive the seed of the Holy Spirit into my spirit by which power I cry, “Abba, Father.”
Lord on behalf of myself and my family line I repent for questioning God’s Word and therefore inviting the influence of Leviathan, the king of pride, into my life (Job 41:34).
Lord I choose to be directed by Your commandments so that You might enlarge my heart (Psalm 119:32).
I declare that my Redeemer lives and while I am yet alive I will see God for myself with my own eyes (Job 19:25-26).
I declare that my hope is in You, my Redeemer. I ask You now to restore the ancient pathways to me and shine Your light on me so that I can see You with my eyes. I ask You to restore my stolen birthright back to me, my glory and my crown.
Father I thank You that before You formed me in my mother’s womb, You had predetermined my birthright, the path of glory I should walk in.
On behalf on me and my generational line I repent for and renounce rejecting the truth that You formed my inmost being and all the days preordained for me were written in Your book before they came to be.
Father on behalf of me and my generational line I repent for and renounce rejecting the ancient path that You have chosen for me to walk in.
Father on behalf of me and my generational line, I repent for and renounce listening to and aligning my thinking with the wicked. Lord, I reject them and their pursuit of bloodlust.
Father, I declare that I am fearfully and wonderfully made and that You will lead me in the way everlasting. I declare that all Your works are wonderful.
Lord I agree with Your Word which says that the weapons of my warfare are not carnal but mighty through You to the pulling down of strongholds. I choose to cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God and I choose to bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ (II Corinthians 10:4-6).
Lord would You release the resurrection power of the Holy spirit to restore me to the path of Holiness. Lord would You cause your Perfect Love to run through my entire being casting out all fear. I ask the Lord to repair or replace any part of my brain or neural pathway required to establish attachment with My Heavenly Father and fellow man.
Lord would You cause me to dwell in the Secret Place of the Most High. I declare my birthright is to walk with Abba Father in the garden where I hear His voice and enjoy intimate fellowship with Him. I believe that Jesus Christ appropriated this intimacy for me when He ripped the veil in the Holy of Holies. Lord I repent for my generational line that tried to earn by works that which You had given freely by grace. Lord would You now usher me into that place of rest and perfect peace.
