Almighty God, you are God Most High. Jesus, you are the one who overcame the world and death. Sin and evil hold no sway over you. You conquered them. I ask that we see your power over them working in our communities. I pray to see chains and bondage to ideologies and false teachings broken in your name, Lord. Tear the veils and remove scales on the eyes of unbelievers. Allow them to see you for who you are. Father, you desire all to come to a saving knowledge of you. Make that happen all around us today. May we see your mighty working power liberating captives, changing lives to live in your freedom. I praise you in the name and authority of Jesus, who came to set the captives free, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to bring good news to the poor;
he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;” (Isaiah 61:1 ESV)
