Heavenly Father, you are the God of freedom. I pray for all those in chains. Some who are under persecution and imprisoned. Some who are in bondage to substances or abusive situations. Some who are bound by their own thoughts. Some who are bound by illness. I come humbly and in reverence for who you are. Lord Jesus, you are the chain breaker. You are the one who sets the captive free. I ask for your touch upon each situation, Lord. I pray the protection of your precious blood over each one. It is for freedom that we stand firm in our circumstance. Holy Spirit, help us to walk in the freedom of Christ. I lift my petition in the name and authority of Jesus, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“I, Paul, write this greeting with my own hand. Remember my chains. Grace be with you.” (Colossians 4:18 ESV)
