Growing up I would hear my mother say…”I plead the Blood of Jesus over this house for deliverance and protection” And, I never understood why, until I had my own family. Now, it’s clear. To have peace and protection in your home, you need Jesus. Also, I learned early how to plead the Blood of Jesus over my life for protection.
You see. I grew up knowing there was something in the Blood of Jesus because my mother spoke it so often. The Blood of Jesus will never lose its power.
So death, where is your sting?
There is life in the Blood of Jesus; we have no greater protection. There is no greater safety than that of the precious Lamb of Jesus Christ. You have to believe there is wonder-working power in the Blood of Lamb.
As we grew older, my mother taught us to plead the Blood of Jesus every time we prayed for protection and deliverance. It’s what has kept me and my family from all evil.
Besides, have you ever wondered what it means to plead the blood of Jesus? You can learn to take the power of the Blood and apply it to any situation in your life!
The Blood of Jesus covers it all.
Another way to describe plead the Blood of Jesus is to apply the Blood to a situation. There’s nothing you can’t plead the Blood of Jesus against for protection. There’s deliverance in the Blood. When you plead the blood, you have put your confidence in the word of God knowing that He will do as He has promised.
As a result, Jesus’s Blood paid it all for us on Calvary.
How to Plead the Blood of Jesus:
To effectively plead the Blood of Jesus, first, you need to know what you’re doing. Our nation is facing a crisis. The Coronavirus. In Exodus 7-12, there were 10 plagues described in the Bible that were simply disastrous that God brought on Egypt because Pharoah refused to let the Israelite nation leave.
In short, I believe this is what our nation is facing today because we will not repent. (This revelation is for later.)
Nonetheless, pleading the Blood of Jesus should be part of our everyday living. We shouldn’t just plead the Blood of Jesus when times are tough or when we’re in trouble. It should be our daily practice.
Here are some ideas to get you started:
You can plead the Blood of Jesus over any person or situation. As you and your family are preparing for the day, lay your hands on their heads and say, “In the Name of Jesus, I plead the blood of Jesus over [say the individuals’ name].”
If you’re having trouble on your job or with your co-workers, say, “In the Name of Jesus, I plead the Blood of Jesus over my mind and every individual [call their name if the spirit leads you] I come into connection with that we walk in divine peace. I like this one as I do it often because I’m in the car a huge amount of my time…”In the Name of Jesus, I plead the Blood of Jesus over this vehicle and all who are going to be with me today. We will go and return in perfect safety.”
You can plead the blood of Jesus over your health. There was an older woman that attended our church many years ago. I learned that she lived in a basement. I heard her say, “I plead the Blood of Jesus over my health, wellness and I will live a long life no matter what my living conditions looked like.” Everyone around her expected her to complain and become ill soon. But, instead, she pleaded the Blood of Jesus against any harm coming to her health. She lived in that basement until death and lived a long life untouched. That’s the power of the Blood!
You can plead the Blood of Jesus over your home for protection and safety. When you apply the Blood of Jesus to your home for protection and safety, you are disarming the devil and every planned he has attempted against you. You have set clear boundaries for the enemy and you are daring him to cross those Blood boundaries. It stops demons in their tracks and removes all wrong spirits from working against you or your family. In the Name of Jesus.
You can plead the Blood as often as you like. Here is an example of what I say during my prayer time:
Example Prayer for Pleading the Blood of Jesus:
Father, thank you for always hearing my prayers and allowing me to walk in your divine favor. I plead my cause before you because I have been justified through your Blood. In the Name of Jesus. I plead the Blood on Jesus over my life, my home, my family, over all of my affairs, and over all of which You have made me a steward. I plead the blood of Jesus on the portals of my mind, my body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit, and my emotions. Therefore, I’m confident that I am protected by the Blood of the Lamb, and nothing shall by any means come to harm me and my family.
I declare no weapon that is formed against me shall prosper because this is my heritage as a servant of the Lord. I plead the Blood over my children, my grandchildren and others that are connected to me.
Lord, You said that the life of the flesh is in the Blood. Thank You for being the life sustainer, for Your Blood has cleansed me from sin and shame. I am now a partaker and joint-heir to the Kingdom. In Jesus Name, Amen.
Set Boundaries Through the Blood of Jesus:
As we speak the Blood of Jesus over our homes and our families, we are setting a boundary for the enemy. We are telling him this is as far as you can go. And, no further. Because of the Blood of Jesus. It offers divine protection. In Exodus 12:22-23, Take a cluster of hyssop, dip it into the blood in the basin, and brush the top and the two sideposts of the doorframe with some of the blood. None of you shall go out the door of his house until morning. When the LORD passes through to strike down the Egyptians, He will see the blood on the top and the two sideposts and pass over the door; so He will not allow the destroyer to enter your houses and strike you down.
So God is saying today, I have given you my son Jesus Christ. One who was pure had no blame or defect. He took all of our sins, shame and died and rose for us. His Blood was shed so that today we can put it on the doorposts of your homes. So, when evil comes, His Blood protects us. Moreover, we’ll find healing in the Blood.
In addition, when the enemy and his demons pass by, nothing shall harm you because you are a child of God. Don’t be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; neither for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Psalm 91:5-7.
Why? Because of the Blood of Jesus. It has wonder-working power.
Every night, pray for your household before you going to sleep. This means that your whole house is fortified and protected by the Blood of Jesus. It’s guarded by an army of heavenly angels. It’s filled with the presence of the Holy Spirit and there will be a peace that will be overflowing from every corner.
There is a greater power when Jesus is the center point and focus of your home. So take the time to gather with your family. If you don’t have time, make the time. We gather for everything else. Start gathering together for prayer. It should not be an option for your family. It’s a necessity for the believer.
Get your house in order at such a time as this. The knock of Christ is at your door. Are you ready to answer? There is one thing that we as believers should be doing every day. Praying!
We don’t know what tomorrow holds. In Revelation 16:15, Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed is he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. People of God be watchful because God is coming soon. Only God will be able to sustain us and give us peace in the midst of this troubled world.
When God is on our side, who can stand against us? When the Lord Almighty is our fortress, who can oppose us? We have no limits as children of God, no Goliath, no Red Sea, no Pharoah. Nothing can limit our God.
In conclusion, as believers, we need to be sensitive to the behaviors that are going on in our home and around us. What are the attitudes and the temperaments around you and are they been aligned to God’s word and His will? Are there any gateways that will allow the enemy to attack your home? Can a spirit of pray and peace be found there?
Subsequently, we have been given a blueprint of how to overcome the enemy. The devil nor his demons can stand against the cross or the Blood of Jesus.
Whereas, the enemy may be roaming around like a lion seeking whom he will devour. But, it cannot touch you or your family because the Blood of Jesus is too powerful for him to overcome.
Today, instead of focusing on what you don’t have or where you can’t go. Be anxious for nothing (Philippians 4:6). Don’t let the enemy have your peace. Stay focus–Anything that has your focus the enemy will try to destroy it.
Therefore, take a bold stand today and plead the Blood of Jesus over your situation. Pray without ceasing 1Thessalonians 5:16-18. God has equipped you with all you need for this fight. Use your weapon. Pick up your sword!
