Prayer for a Cloak of Invisibility

Prayer for a Cloak of Invisibility | by Jamie Rohrbaugh | FromHisPresence.com

Would you like a holy cloak of invisibility from the Lord? If so, read on–because today we’re looking at a pretty terrific Scripture passage where JESUS wore His invisibility cloak, and I’m going to show you how YOU can too!

Jesus, walking as Spirit-filled man, demonstrated some pretty amazing supernatural abilities while here on earth.

Oh, it’s easy to remember Him healing the sick, raising the dead, and multiplying the loaves and the fishes. But we often tend to bypass some of the other things He did–things that show us how Jesus was totally tapped into the supernatural power of Holy Spirit, even while He went about His daily life here on earth.

Things like walking through walls and walking on water. 🙂

One of my favorite stories that includes a supernatural manifestation is when Jesus almost got killed, but He put on His cloak of invisibility and escaped instead.

“His cloak of invisibility? What’s that?” you say?

Well, I’m going to show you. 🙂

By the way: After Holy Spirit started talking to me about the cloak of invisibility, I heard that there’s a “thing” out there in the secular world about this, from a movie series that talks about evil things. I wouldn’t know, because I don’t watch the movie series myself–and you shouldn’t watch that movie series either. But let me assure you that what I’m writing below about the invisibility cloak is 100% from God’s Word, with zero influence from the world.

So the story about Jesus and the cloak of invisibility comes from Luke 4:16-30, which says:

“So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.

And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written:

‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.’

Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.

And He began to say to them, ‘Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.’

So all bore witness to Him, and marveled at the gracious words which proceeded out of His mouth. And they said, ‘Is this not Joseph’s son?’

He said to them, ‘You will surely say this proverb to Me, ‘Physician, heal yourself! Whatever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in Your country.’”

Then He said, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. But I tell you truly, many widows were in Israel in the days of Elijah, when the heaven was shut up three years and six months, and there was a great famine throughout all the land; but to none of them was Elijah sent except to Zarephath, in the region of Sidon, to a woman who was a widow. And many lepers were in Israel in the time of Elisha the prophet, and none of them was cleansed except Naaman the Syrian.’

So all those in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath, and rose up and thrust Him out of the city; and they led Him to the brow of the hill on which their city was built, that they might throw Him down over the cliff. Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way” (Luke 4:16-30, emphasis mine).

If you imagine this scene with me, you can see that:

  • Jesus got up and took a position of authority in the synagogue, reading the Scriptures to the people.
  • He read a Scripture portion that talked about His calling here on the earth.
  • Then He told the people that that portion of Scripture was fulfilled that very day, insinuating that it was fulfilled in HIM.
  • They didn’t believe Him and murmured against Him. So, He rebuked their doubt and unbelief.
  • Then Jesus told them that people OUTSIDE Israel would believe in Him and get God’s blessings, even though THEY refused to believe in Him.

Well, the Israelites got really mad about that–really really mad. Murderously mad.

So they got up and physically threw Him out of the city. That wasn’t enough for them, though. After throwing Him out of the city, they physically took Him to the top of a cliff, so they could throw Him over and kill Him.

Umm, that doesn’t sound like a calm, distracted crowd to me. Does it to you?

Here’s where the invisibility cloak comes in:

Picture this. This angry, murderous crowd of legalistic, religious zealots has Jesus where they want Him. They’ve physically dragged Him to the top of a cliff and they’re ready to throw Him over. They hate him and want Him dead, NOW.

Then passing through the midst of them, He went His way.”

Umm, again. “Passing through the midst of them, He went His way.”

Have you ever wondered about that? Doesn’t that strike you as odd? Did Jesus just say, “Nah, thanks for the opportunity, but I’d rather not go over that cliff. I’ll see you later,” and walk away and THEY LET HIM?

Um, no.

In my opinion, not possible.

Certainly not reasonable.

Definitely not realistic.

So what happened? Because somehow, “passing through the midst of them, He went His way” and He lived to fight another day.

I believe what we see here is a supernatural manifestation.

The same way Jesus walked through walls and walked on water, I believe Jesus walked through this murderous crowd of Jews and that this passage is actually celebrating that He got away by walking right through them.

And since no murderous crowd of religious zealots, bent on sending Jesus cliff-diving for blasphemy, would have just let Him walk away, I believe that they probably couldn’t see Him.

I believe this passage memorializes Jesus’ Great Escape in a way that made the disciples shake their heads with wonder and awe.

Can you picture the disciples talking to one another about it? That conversation might have gone something like this:

“How’d He get away?”

“I don’t know, man! They acted like they didn’t even see Him! One minute they had hold of Him and were ready to throw Him over the cliff, and the next minute He just walked right by them and left!”

“He walked right through the middle of them?”

“Yes! He just walked right through the middle of them all!”

“They must not have seen Him. No way they saw Him.”

(Two disciples, nodding heads, concurring.)

(Both disciples, staring at Jesus in awe and not a little fear.)

You can believe what you want, but I believe that the only way Jesus walked away from a murderous mob of angry Jews, walking right through the middle of them, was if they didn’t see Him.

I believe He suddenly became invisible. Literally invisible. But even if He didn’t, He DID suddenly become out of their reach–they suddenly couldn’t harm or restrain Him.

And since Jesus walked on the earth as Spirit-filled man, I believe you and I can have that same protection from the Lord–the same cloak of invisibility.

After all, doesn’t Psalm 91 promise us that level of protection from the Lord?

Psalm 91 promises us that no evil will befall us if we dwell in the hovering, brooding, and overshadowing of the Lord. It promises us that no plague will come near our dwellings, and that–even if a thousand fall at your side and ten thousand at your right hand–it shall NOT come near YOU.

So if you believe with me that Jesus’ miraculous escape from those murderous Jews means they didn’t actually SEE Him walking away …

… that He put on a holy cloak of invisibility and walked right through them, without them seeing where He went …

OR if you simply believe that God protected Him supernaturally, but that He wasn’t necessarily literally invisible …

… Either way, we can and should pray, based on Psalm 91, that the Lord would so clothe us with His glory and protection that we are rendered completely invisible to the enemy.

So either way, we can walk with a cloak of invisibility from the Lord. We can be protected from the enemy’s plots at all times.

I’ve been praying about this for some time now, and I keep hearing the phrase “cloak of invisibility.” So I felt led to write about this today, and to write down a sample prayer you can pray for this holy invisibility cloak. 

Are you ready to pray with me?

If so, pray this sample prayer for a cloak of invisibility:

“Dear Heavenly Father,

I come before You in Jesus’ name.

Father, I thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Thank You for Jesus’ example in Your Word, and thank You for Your Holy Spirit who illumines Your Word in my heart.

Abba Father, Jesus did many amazing miracles while He was here during His earthly ministry. And Father, since Jesus is our ultimate Example, I know that it is Your will for me to do the same things Jesus did.

Since Jesus is the ultimate depiction of who You are, I know You want me to walk just as Jesus walked–saying what He said and doing what He did. And furthermore, You want me to do even greater works, for Jesus is no longer walking on earth fulfilling His earthly ministry–but He left the charge to do greater works in our hands as Your children.

Father, You protected Jesus supernaturally while He was here on the earth.

In Luke 4:16-30, it was like You gave Him a cloak of invisibility. The enemy was trying to kill Him, but He escaped their murderous grasp and walked right through them, going on His way. The enemy couldn’t harm Him, and maybe couldn’t even see Him while He left.

Father, I don’t know if Jesus was literally invisible or not, but He was certainly inaccessible to the enemy. And Father God, I’m asking You for that kind of protection from the enemy today also.

Specifically, Father:

  • If the enemy tries to steal, kill, or destroy anything that pertains to my life, hide me and make me invisible–so the enemy and his evil forces cannot harm me.
  • If wicked people on earth get an offense against me, let them be unable to find me or access me in any way.
  • Furthermore, let them be unable to find or access my family, our finances, our work, our jobs, our businesses, our homes, or anything else that pertains to us.

Father God, put Your holy cloak of invisibility around me, my family, our ministry, our home, and everything that pertains to us.

Let us operate in this world effectively. Let us preach the Gospel loudly. Let us do business prosperously. Let us stand and fight for righteousness and justice. Use us powerfully for Your Kingdom.

But all the while, Father God, drape us with Your cloak of invisibility so that the enemy can neither see us nor harm us.

Thank You, Father. Thank You for this “secret place” level of protection. Increase Your protection on us every day as You use us more and more for Your Kingdom; and we’ll give You all the glory.

Thank You, Abba Father. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.”

        Thank You for that prayer…do you have a prayer for when someone hurts you ?

        1. Hi Naomi, I do have many prayers for that. Could you be more specific? I will try to send you something based on your specific situation.
          Blessings!
          Jamie

    2. Thankyou foryour message and prayers. Continue the work andbe Blessed.

      1. Helen Denise Johnson says:

        Hi Jamie touch in agreement with me for the invisible cloak. The enemy been trying to harm my grade. I attend Ancilla College where there is a lot of racism and unjustice. The enemy been messing with me really bad. When I take my exam the enemy has been logging me out of my exam. Something going on very weird at this school African American students are under attack. We are all one family, pray that I would be able to take my exam.

    3. Thanks for a great prayer, Jamie! It reminds me of a story I heard long ago – some missionaries in a country hostile to Christians in the 1960’s or 70’s had a cartload of Bibles they needed to distribute to their underground church. Usually they were smuggled in a few a a time, but due to several factors they needed to transport them all at once with no good way to totally conceal them. The small group prayed and prayed, and were led to ask God to protect and conceal them and the bibles as they passed through the center of the town. So they kept pace with those around them, and as they went with the crowd past authorities who would have killed them for even being in possession of bibles, they passed through unmolested. Indeed, they all said later that it was as if no one could see them at all!! And the bibles were given to the people without any problems, and the missionaries continued their work for many years. Praise God for His cloak!

    4. Praise God prophet Jamie. Amen! Glory to our Redeemer and savior. This word is actually for me, absolutely- a 100%. Right now iam going through very tough and ugly issues, posing some insecurity into my life and career and therefore the prayer for God to cloth me with a cloak of invisibility, and offer me a high protection, is my prayer. I know my God will work out all things for my good. Thanks a lot Jamie and may God continue expanding your territory further and always. Thanks and God bless you.

    5. Thank you Anna Father, the Lord revealed the plan of the enemy against me and this is the perfect prayer to make it of none effect. God bless this ministry amen

    6. Dolores Ahlheim says:

      I definitely believe about the cloak of invisibility. I have prayed Psalm 91 in prayer daily for many years over my children, husband and myself and/or mentioned it and referred to it … calling upon it in prayer for protection. And God has consistently answered. There have been times where I have prayed with kids at school, where prayer is supposed to not be allowed and people around us were oblivious or distracted to the point that they didn’t even realize that I was ministering to the individual. If someone did overhear the conversation … they were quiet about it and received supernatural benefits from the conversation as well. All glory to the Lord Most High!!

  2. Thank you, Jamie for this word today! The enemy is surrounding me and my family and I have prayed this prayer and believe that they can no longer see us. Glory to God!

    1. Judith Makunga says:

      I have prayed the prayer because we definitely need it in these perilous times. Thank you Jamie for sharing

    2. jacqualine riddle says:

  3. Thank you very much for this word. The stubborn enemy has been bullying me in my sleep. I have prayed and asked Abba Father for secret place level of protection. Amen

    1. Margarita says:

      Yes jamie its a confirmation for the other week this word being invisible was in my head. I thought that invisibility protects a person from any harm that the enemy will inflict upon him. Its not a coincidence that ive read this word of yours. Im thanking our creator almighty for giving his cloak of invisibility to HIS people. YAY and AHMAN.

  4. Maika Kamikamica says:

    Glory to GOD
    Amen to that

  5. Thank you Jamie for the powerful Prophetic Prayer. It really resonates with me. May God continously protect you and your family with a hedge of fire. Amen

  6. Sherine Whyte says:

    Dear Jamie,
    I Thank God for you and for giving you this revelation about a cloak of invisibility. Indeed, I have been praying about God hiding me of late because the enemy is really attacking me in every area of my life. I was reading Psalm 31 and verse 20 speaks about God hiding those that fear Him. This prayer is confirmation for me.
    The blessings of the Lord be with you and your Ministry.

    Sherine

  7. Rebecca Jones says:

    Supernatural protection for sure, however, it happened. The enemy’s counterfeits are always going to fail with Him on the throne.

  8. Amen! Thank you for that prayer.

  9. Lucretia Wingate says:

    AMEN!! 🙌🏾🙏🏾 Glory to GOD. Thank You Jamie for this encouraging word, I read it and I felt it. GOD BLESS 😇✋🏾👉🏾 you.

  10. Beth Jones says:

    Hello Jamie, This Word and Prayer certainly resonates with me today. This year in every Christmas Card my husband and I send I am including a copy of the 91st Pslam written in the 1st person. It is very powerful and personal. I have prayed it several times in my life especially when difficulties arise.
    A cloak of invisibility is So Important for those of us who have been charged with some pretty big plans from the Lord. I am glad you included physical, financial and all other aspects of our lives.
    May God Bless You Richly

  11. I will fight the good fight of faith. Amen

  12. I wholeheartedly agree with a holy invisibility cloak! I recall hearing/reading that Corey Ten Boom (spelling?) was clothed in one as she walked right past a Nazi guard carrying a Bible as she and her sister were entering a concentration camp.

    When St Patrick’s Day came around, I would tell my preschool Sunday school class that an Irish chieftain sent me to ambush him and his companions on a particular road their way to preach at a village. When receiving word that Patrick and companions had reached their destination, the men only reported seeing 4 deer while they waited along the road Dow the ambush.

  13. God bless you Jamie for this Divine Revelation.

  14. Dear Jamie,
    Thank you for the prayer of the cloak. I will be reading this every day.
    This hit Right on time for my personal life.

  15. John Shomade says:

    Thank you Jamie for another ‘ gem’ from tbe throne of God. It certainly resonate with me. I really need that ‘Cloak of Invisibility’ in every areas of my life, health, ministry, family and finances.
    I’ve prayed for it and will continue to do so, believing Ì receive it on a daily basis in Jesus name Amen.

  16. Richard Nyatsoka says:

    Wow!! Jamie I fully subscribe to your understanding of the scripture passage. There are other scriptures in the Bible that underpin the notion of The Invisible Cloak on Jesus. I believe all we need is the assistance and power of the Holy Spirit to see and understand what really happened for Jesus to elude His captors. Well, I certainly need this cloak of invisibility in my everyday life as the family breadwinner and a minister of God.

    May God bless you with more revelations that bless His people and quicken the spread of the Gospel on earth.

  17. Amen! I need this supernatural cloak around me! I battle a seizure disorder and recently got let go from a new, awesome job bc I had a seizure at work. They can’t admit that’s the reason why(it would be illegal) but up until then, they said I was doing phenomenal. Protect me and manifest my healing, Lord!

  18. Maika Kamikamica says:

    Amen
    Praise God

    1. I’ve heard a testimony about this. Knife crime and gang crime is really bad in some parts here in London. One gentleman was telling of how at that time he was part of a gang and he used to attend a church in the rival gang’s neighbourhood. His friend used to drop him off and pick him up from the service. One day the friend was running late. As the gentleman was the was waiting the rival gang got wind that he was there and they started to gather. I think he said about 50 or more members with weapons started charging at him but then suddenly he realised they were actually running past him. The looks on their faces were confused ones as if to say where did he go. He said at that point he realised he was invisible. He would wave his hands in their faces and they couldn’t see Him. How wonderful is our Jesus!

  19. Thank you Father for protecting us

  20. I am in agreement with being hidden in Christ and those that mean to do me harm will not find me or see me.. I believe that David was also hidden from his enemies. I heard of a testimony from a person that someone was looking for them and they walked right by them and didn’t see them. God is so good and deserves all the praise.

  21. Amen. To God be all the glory. I receive the “CLOAK OF INVISIBILITY”

  22. KIMBERLY A. says:

    Thank you for your obedience to the father. This definitely was an on-time word. Confirmation WOG (Woman of G-d). I receive, I DECLARE AND I DECREE THE CLOAK OF PROTECTION FROM THE LORD FOR NOT ONLY ME BUT MY FAMILY, BUSINESS, FINANCES, MINISTRY FRIENDS AND EVERYONE GODLY CONNECTED TO ME IN JESUS NAME. I ALSO PRAY THAT NO BACK LEASH COME UPON YOU, YOUR FAMILY, AND EVERYTHING PERTAINING TO YOU. I PRAY THE COVERING OF THE LORD THAT WILL KEEP YOU IN PERFECT PEACE AT ALL TIMES IN JESUS NAME. I ALSO PRAY THAT YOU WILL INCREASE IN KINGDOM WISDOM, KNOWLEDGE, STATURE, AND IN FAVOR WITH NO ONLY GOD BUT MAN AS WELL IN JESUS NAME, AMEN.

  23. Thank you for this teaching. It truly resonates with me. Thank you for the prayer. I will add it to my daily prayer over me and my family. I love when God continues to reveal His Word and understanding.

  24. Cindy🌹 says:

    I pray for & receive our Father’s supernatural protection, in Jesus’ name. NOTHING is impossible with God!!!!

  26. Maribeth Bieber says:

    Hello,
    I was very excited to hear you Talk about this happening with Jesus Jamie. I just saw this happen in a show called the Followers on Angels Studio
    They’re at 3 seasons. I am in the 3 rd season and I don’t know how it’s going to end now when it is not over. Anyway I never new of this before. It looked like they were going to push them over. I think when it came down to it they froze with fear because they stopped to think of the controversy over Jesus and was actually afraid to push Him and that moment Jesus scooted out of there quickly. He was so shook up and was leaving very quickly and He knew this was not His time or how it was to be done. The Father wouldn’t let it happen that way anyway you are right!
    Thanks for the prayer.

    1. I think you might mean “The Chosen,” friend? If so, in that scene, yes, they did not portray it like the Bible wrote it. But I believe that what the Bible wrote is literal. 🙂
      I do love The Chosen in general, though!
      Blessings,
      Jamie

  27. Maribeth Bieber says:

    I was wrong my husband watched with me and he said Jesus disappeared and they didn’t know what happened.
    I never read it yet. I am though.

  28. Kierra Greer says:

    It’s been heavy on my spirit to pray to become completely invisible to the enemy. The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me about this for some time now, I’m so thankful I found this post! It’s good to see someone who agrees with and understands how I feel about this. I think it’s VERY important and necessary. I will continue to Pray to Our Father about this. May everyone who prays for The Cloak of Invisibility have their prayer answered in The Mighty Name of Jesus! Amen. 🤍✨

  29. Jammie I am being Blessed every day with your prayers. May you be richly blessed.

  30. Irma Nortje says:

    AMEN THANKU 10.2.24 FOR THE CLOAK OF INVISIBILITY ON ME AND MY FAMILY AGAINST THE ENEMY.

  31. Beloved Jamie, I just LOVE the way you write – it Resonates and Rings Out Loud with Bells of Truth !
    Thank you for a great prayer
