Lord Jesus, I acknowledge that I cannot get guidance and protection from you when I am walking in disobedience. Please forgive me for the many times I have ignored your word and your will. Forgive me for the instances where I have cooperated with the enemy instead of cooperating with your word. Forgiving me for the times when I have believed the lies of the evil one. From now, I submit myself fully to your Lordship. I destroy any agreement that I might have made with Satan, whether knowingly or unknowingly.
Lord Jesus, please release your holy angels to come and deal with any demons that might be developing devices against me because I had believed their lies. I ask that you surround me with a hedge of fire and of angels so that they will not be able to reach me again. I thank you for the seal of the Holy Spirit by which I have confidence that my spirit is safe from further attack.
From today, I put on the full armor of God and ask that my body, soul, and spirit might be sealed with the Holy Spirit and covered in the Blood of the lamb. By faith, I believe that the angels of God have set up an impregnable shield around me. I am safe in the arms of Jesus. Amen.
Dear Lord, I came to you in faith, believing for the healing of my wounded heart. I pray for the healing of the torments that might be bringing me anxiety. May the underlying cause of any sinfulness in my life be healed today in Jesus’ name. May any psychological harm from my childhood and throughout life be healed today in your precious name.
Dear Lord, since you remind me in your word that you carried all my sorrows and pains, I lay all of my wounds at your feet and believe that I am completely healed. I forgive and release all those that might have offended me. May you heal any hurts that make it hard for me to forgive those who have wronged me.
I ask that you may heal all those psychological wounds that are the root causes of my physical illnesses. I surrender my whole heart to you that you may heal and make it anew. Let every wound and pain be removed from my heart. Instead of pain, fill my heart with love and warmth so that I might be an effective witness of the cross.

Sometimes, He might inspire to make a completely new prayer. Like Mary the mother of Jesus told the people in John 2, just do whatever he tells you.
