A Prayer for Those Involved in Court Cases


So, I have a court hearing tomorrow.  In exactly 24 hours, to be precise.  And the events of this past year will finally come to a close so I can move on.  I’ve had Exodus 14:13-14 on repeat in my head, along with several other verses, as I try to focus on what God has done for me in the past year so I can trust in what He will do now and going forward.

When I got to work this morning, a dear friend and co-worker had left this prayer in my mailbox.  It was exactly what I needed to hear today.  It is from Kenneth Copeland Ministries and can be printed out here.

Father, I ask You to help me as I face this legal battle.  I thank You for being a very present help in time of trouble.  I open my heart to the Holy Spirit to reveal any of my own disobedience in this matter so that I may repent and receive Your forgiveness.  Deliver me from hate and revenge.

In the Name of Jesus, I ask You to cause truth to prevail.  I pray that You will protect me from lying tongues and deceitful lips.  I believe and declare that no weapon formed against me will prosper, and any tongue unjustly rising against me will be shown to be wrong.  I will dwell in Your secret place, which hides me from the strife of tongues.  I pray that You will stop false witnesses that speak against me and cause them to be caught in their own trap.  Help me as I reply in defense.  Let Your Spirit give me the words to say when I need them.

By an act of my will, I refuse to fear, and I cast down any imagination that tries to exalt itself above the knowledge of You and Your love.

In the Name of Jesus, I now cast the care of this court case upon You.  I resist anxiety, and I receive calmness and peace.  I believe that Your Favor and the favor of man will surround me like a shield.

Your Word says You will perfect that which concerns me, so I make a conscious decision to receive Your perfected end.  I give You all the glory for all that will be accomplished, and I will testify of Your goodness.  Amen.
