Prayer to Bind Inflation
Did you know that YOU are God’s governor on earth?
It’s true. When Jesus said “on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” (Matthew 16:18), the word used there for “church”—ekklesia—was not a word He made up. He wasn’t coining a new term. Instead, He was describing to us exactly what He wanted His church to do and to be …
… Because the ekklesia was an assembly of the people, called together for the purpose of governing and legislating.
The Greek ekklesia was a governing body of the Greek people. When they got together, they existed to govern. They voted, they ruled, and they made the laws. Whatever they said went.
And in the Kingdom of God, Christ’s church is also a governing and legislating body. Whatever we say goes. This applies even to nations. And it applies to our nation, for we as a church—the governing body of God’s people—can assemble together to bind and loose, cast down and raise up.
Well, in our nation today, we are facing an extreme problem that needs to be bound.
That problem is called “inflation,” and it’s exploding. But you know what? This inflation that appears to be out of control is not out of control at all—because we, God’s people, have control in the Spirit realm. God bows to no man, and there is not enough power of darkness in all the earth to keep Him from moving as we pray.
So, beloved brother or sister in Christ, will you assemble with me in prayer today and link your faith with mine—and with the faith of thousands of other saints across the nation—and let’s legislate in the Spirit realm to bind inflation?
Pray and speak this declaration and prayer to bind inflation out loud:
“Father God, in Jesus’ name, we thank You that where two or more agree as touching any thing, it shall be done for us. We praise You, for Your Word is good, and Your mercy endures forever.
Abba Father, we take up our authority that You have given us today. And with the authority You have vested in us as Your ekklesia—Your ruling body—we speak against inflation and we bind it. And in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, we decree and declare that:
- No weapon formed against the United States of America may prosper. Every tongue that rises against her we shall show to be in the wrong.
- Inflation is bound in Jesus’ name. We bind inflation and forbid it to continue, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
- We speak a healthy amount of deflation to the prices of goods, in Jesus’ name.
- We decree and declare that the government, the Fed, and the powers that be on the earth must take holy and righteous steps NOW to curb inflation and bring our economy back to health.
- We command the supply chain to OPEN and STABILIZE, in Jesus’ name.
- In the holy name of Jesus, we command the stock market to stabilize and soar to healthy levels again.
- We command the housing market to stabilize in Jesus’ name.
- We decree and declare that an adequate and plentiful amount of affordable housing must come forth NOW, in Jesus’ name.
- We decree that the enemy must let go of any housing that has been held or monopolized by any people and corporations that have been attempting to steal housing from the American people.
- We declare PROFITS into the retirement accounts of all God’s people now, in Jesus’ name.
- We speak that mutual funds must return to profitability NOW.
- We command the oil pipelines to BE OPENED NOW, in Jesus’ name, and for affordable fuel to flow to all Americans and American businesses.
- We command every American factory that has been shut down, hindered, or shuttered to LIVE and REOPEN in Jesus’ name.
- We loose prosperity and money to come into the hands of God’s people NOW, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
- We decree in Jesus’ name that ALL of God’s people will prosper no matter what happens in the world, for we are partakers of God’s Kingdom economy, not bound to the world’s economic system.
Inflation, we bind you in the name of Jesus! You can continue no more! Economy, we command you to normalize, stabilize, and return to the health and vigor that will benefit all Americans. Prices of consumer goods, we speak to you and command you to go down and be easily affordable again, in Jesus’ name!
Abba Father, Your Word says in Psalm 35:27:
“Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.’”
Lord, You take pleasure in the prosperity of Your servants.
In these current economic circumstances that have been foisted upon us by the wicked, we are not prospering. We are struggling, instead. Nevertheless, Your Word says that Your people shall never be put to shame.
Therefore, Father, we ask You in Jesus’ name to take up our cause and enforce these declarations that we have made today. We ask that You would go out with Your mighty hand and outstretched arm and cast down inflation, restore us to prosperity, and do for us ALL the things that make Your heart glad.
Thank You, Father. We serve at Your pleasure. And we thank You for giving us the power to bind inflation and loose prosperity, for these things which we have bound on earth are already bound in Heaven.
You do not tolerate wickedness, control, or poverty in Your Heaven—and neither shall we on earth. You have riches, glory, honor, provision, and plenty in Heaven—and so we loose Your riches, glory, honor, provision, and plenty on earth and in our nation.
Thank You, Father. We give You all the praise. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen and amen.”
Friend, God doesn’t think in terms of social clubs. We don’t pray just because it’s a fun thing to do together. We pray in order to govern.
You are called to legislate in the Spirit realm. Therefore, I urge you today to take up your gavel and bind unrighteousness—even this unrighteous beast called inflation. Use your God-given authority and loose God’s sovereignty, help, prosperity, and victory into our nation and into our economy today through your words and prayers!
