For every child of God defeats this evil world,
and we achieve this victory through our faith. – 1 John 5:4

We live by His words and our faith overcomes evil. Your prayers are very important. Grab  a map of the region you feel led to pray for and speak these scriptures out in confident faith.

Here below are His words about Jesus Christ Who is His Word. You are welcome to speak these scriptures over your life, over your city, your country, other countries – as you feel led by the Holy Spirit.

By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people? – Isa 53:8

And Jesus prayed, Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do. – Luke 23:34

The next day John saw Jesus coming to him and said, Look! There is the Lamb of God, Who takes away the sin of the world! – John 1:29

While we were yet in weakness [powerless to help ourselves], at the fitting time Christ died for (in behalf of) the ungodly. – Rom 5:6

while we were still sinners, Christ died for us – Rom 5:8

Therefore, since we are now justified (acquitted, made righteous, and brought into right relationship with God) by Christ’s blood – Rom 5:9

while we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, it is much more [certain]; now that we are reconciled, that we shall be saved through His resurrection life – Rom 5:10

But God’s free gift is not at all to be compared to the trespass [His grace is out of all proportion to the fall of man]. For if many died through one man’s failing away (his lapse, his offense), much more profusely did God’s grace and the free gift [that comes] through the undeserved favor of the one Man Jesus Christ abound and overflow for [the benefit of] many. – Rom 5:15

Nor is the free gift to be compared to the effect of that one [man’s] sin. For the sentence [following the trespass] of one [man] brought condemnation, whereas the free gift [following] many transgressionsbrings justification (an act of righteousness). – Rom 5:16

For if because of one man’s trespass (lapse, offense) death reigned through that one, much more surely will those who receive [God’s] overflowing grace (unmerited favor) and free gift of righteousness[putting them into right standing with Himself] reign as kings in life through the one Man Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One). – Rom 5:17

Well then, as one man’s trespasses [one man’s false step and falling away led] to condemnation for all men, so one Man’s act of righteousness [leads] to acquittal and right standing with God and life for all men – Rom 5:18

For just as by one man’s disobedience (failing to hear, heedlessness, and carelessness) the many were constituted sinners, so by one Man’s obedience the many will be constituted righteous (made acceptable to God, brought into right standing with Him). – Rom 5:19

But where sin increased and abounded, grace (God’s unmerited favor) has surpassed it and increased the more and superabounded – Rom 5:20

So that, [just] as sin has reigned in death, [so] grace (His unearned and undeserved favor) might reign also through righteousness (right standing with God) which issues in eternal life through Jesus Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One) our Lord – Rom 5:21

After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high – Heb 1:3

But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man. – Heb 2:9

that He might deliver and completely set free all those who through the [haunting] fear of death were held in bondage throughout the whole course of their lives. – Heb 2:15

Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— Heb 2:14

He went once for all into the [Holy of] Holies [of heaven]… [by which to make reconciliation between God and man] but by His own blood, having found and secured a complete redemption (an everlasting release for us) – Heb 9:12

He has once for all at the consumation and close of the ages appeared to put away and abolish sin by His sacrifice [of Himself] – Heb 9:26

Even so it is that Christ, having been offered to take upon Himself and bear as a burden the sins of many once and once for all, will appear a second time, not to carry any burden of sin nor to deal with sin… – Heb 9:28

Now where there is absolute remission (forgiveness and cancellation of the penalty) of these [sins and lawbreaking], there is no longer any offering made to atone for sin.” – Heb 10:18

[God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross]. – Col 2:15

And God purposed that through (by the service, the intervention of) Him [the Son] all things should be completely reconciled back to Himself, whether on earth or in heaven, as through Him, [the Father] madepeace by means of the blood of His cross. – Col 1:20

And He [that same Jesus Himself] is the propitiation (the atoning sacrifice) for our sins, and not for ours alone but also for [the sins of] the whole world. – 1 John 2:2

For the bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world.” – Joh 6:33

The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil’s work. – 1 John 3:8

but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. – 2 Tim 1:10

For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. – 1Co 15:21-22

that is, in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and entrusting to us the message of reconciliation. – 2Co 5:19
