 Father, Lord of Host, Arise and defend me
There is an enemy common to every man, 1 Corinthians 15:26, everybody must have this final enemy called death. This enemy have many enemies, sickness is one of them 2 King 13. 
Agent of death are:
1. poverty: proverbs 10:15
2. spiritual bondage Mark 5:1-15, 
It’s when somebody is in bondage he become to think of suicide. There is a link between sickness and sin, Psalm 107:17:20, Mark 2:1-12
for victory over sickness to be permanent, you must remained sinless. John 5:2-14

There is a link between poverty and sin, Proverbs 13:15, for you to have complete victory over poverty, you must obey God completely: Deuteronomy 28:1-28. 
There is a link between bondage and sin, to be free from bondage you must come to Jesus: 1 John 3:5, and Mathew 1:21 
You want victory, you need to come to Jesus Christ. Mathew 11:28-30, 2 Corinthians 5:17
In the name of the one who called me, this night your victory will be total and it will be permanent. 
When we talk about complete victory, it means there is no area in your life where you are suffering defeat, no reproach in your life. Genesis 16:1-5 (Sarah was despised by her maid but God moved the one that can despised became joyful) 
1 Samuel 1:1-20, 2 Kings 4:8-17 (Shunammite woman has everything, she was wealthy and influential but she was barren until God moved) 
God can moved in various ways;
1. He can silence all the mockers Psalm 115:1-3, 2 Kings 4:1-7, 2 Kings 2:19-22. In the name that is above every other name, any reproach in your life will end tonight
Prayer Point 1: 
Father, every reproach in your life will end tonight
Using Naaman as a case study because when God finished with him, there was no scare left. His victory was absolute, permanent. His journey to this permanent victory start within his house, there was a maid there, he got help at hand, immediate help, Psalm 46:1, Psalm 27:10 
There are times you need immediate help Exodus 15:22-25, 2 Kings 4:1-7, he got help near him, Mathew 17:24-27. Many at times you need help urgently
Prayer Point 2: 
Father, send help to me now
Through the help of the maid, suddenly Naaman was connected to the one who will help his destiny. As the lord liveth, tonight, God will send help to your destiny.
God works in mysterious ways. I don't know how God will do it, In His mysterious ways, He will link you up. Exodus 4:1-16, Exodus 17:8-13, Deuteronomy 34:9, God reveal to Joseph that he is going to be great and his family bow down to him, God arranged it using his brothers to sell in to slavery and made his destiny fulfilled. I don't know how God will do it, In the name of the one who sent me, in a miraculous way to the one who will help your destiny, God will connect you. 
Prayer Point 3:
Father, use any method and connect me to those who will help my destiny
In the story of Naaman, after God connected him to the one who will give him absolute victory, he nearly destroyed the plan of God for his life. The man of God said he should go and wash himself seven times but he was angry. He had two personal problems; 
1. He was proud saying the rivers in his country are better than Jordan, James 4:6
2. He was a man of temper, Ecclesiastes 7:9
You have to resist temper, anger for God to be with you Romans 8:31, if God is for you and you be against yourself then you have a problem.
Prayer Point 4: 
Father, don't let my inner man destroy my destiny
 The lord said, He will heal you from head to toe
 The Lord said, the force of darkness disturbing you will not return
 The Lord said, your present pregnancy will not come down until maturity
 The Lord said you belong to a gang, God said that gang is going to be wiped out, He said get out of on that gang or you will not see the end of July
 The Lord ask me to tell somebody, He said because you survived June, you will not die. 
 The Lord ask me to tell someone here, the proverb of the rich also cry will not apply to you again
 The Lord said your adversary is disappearing one by one.
And then something happened, Naaman was going away in a rage, he was furious but because of the very special love that God has for him, his servant risk his life to advise him. When God has made up his mind to help you, nothing will stop Him. 1 King 19:1-8, John 21:1-19 and Luke 5:1-11
Prayer Point 5:
Father, please don't let me go, help me all the way, hold me tight Lord and hold fast unto me Lord.
Paying Attention To Details
Naaman was told to wash in Jordan not any other river, wash seven times, it was the 7th times that he came out clean Deuteronomy 28:1-13, 2 Kings 4:1-7(Instructions was given to the widow, she paid attention to the details given to her).
Many of us don't pay attention to details. He said bring all the tithe into my house. He said, put me first. When you want to deal with God deal with Him all the way because He is a God of details. 
2 King 13:14-19. Do all He ask you to do and you will see Him work wonders in your life.
Prayer Point 6: 
Father, the grace to obey you completely, give it to me today
Finally, what do I do so that my victory will remain permanently
From the life of Naaman. After he received his victory, he came back to say thank you. He returned to Elisha to say thank you. 2 King 5:15-19. The reason why many of us has never had more than one breakthrough is because we have not come back to testify. Many of us can’t even open our mouth to say thank you to God. Mark 1:40-45. Many of us got born again through someone that witness to you, how many people have you witness to? Learn to say thank you, learn to appreciate God. Thank God for victory He has won for you in the past, give Him glory.
