This morning I heard, "Rebuke every sabotaging attack against you," and I knew I had to write this because there are some people that just don't know what to do when they come under attack...
The world is trying to make light of pressure. I watched I think, 2 movies and 1 TV show called 9-11, that had 3 separate suicide incidents in 1 episode, and all referenced suicide several times as an "easy way out", "with no pain", and "so you can escape." The devil is a liar! I couldn't believe what I was seeing and hearing, but these are end times and now more than ever we have to come away from TV and movies because secular messages are trying to get people to give up. For Christians that are under attack, it's important to understand that we're in a new season. What attacked you in 2017 is not coming back. That attack is over, but you have to do the work in 2018 because now we're in a season of working God's Word for effective results. I can't stress this enough: You have to put in the physical AND spiritual work this year. Stay grounded. God's got you!
But how do you focus on spiritual growth patterns and maturity when you're under demonic attack? We've included a few prayers and ministry clips below to help you grow in the Lord as you learn what prayers to pray so you can focus on forward and grow stronger in the Lord.
Why do Spiritual Attacks Happen?
There's a misconception about spiritual growth. We think that if we "only" pray God will remove that "thing", but what you think might be hindering you might be tied to your blessing, i.e., wheat and chaff growing together, test leads to the testimony, and so forth. Then there are attacks that come from the enemy and that's what the prayers and clips below are for so you can arm yourself with spiritual strength as you go and grow in God. Rebuke the spiritual attacks in your life and know that by the blood of Jesus, you are covered.
Spiritual growth and maturity takes time, but know that it's about God's timing and His way.
It Has To Be God's Way
In life, we're faced with obstacles and like the Apostle Paul, sometimes you can't remove the thing or person that you "think" is stopping you, or distracting you. There's a stereotype that a lot of Christians grew up with that being a Christian is easy. The theory is you pray and ask God for a blessing and He provides, and then one day we all go to heaven. While that's true in theory, a lot of churches don't tell you the truth, that for every level you go into, like the wheat and chaff coming up together, there will be trials and tests that you might not be prepared for. No longer can you "name it and claim it" or rely on "feel good" messages to get you through. The season we're entering in requires work.
Entering a Season of Learning
As you grow in the Lord, you'll have to learn to "work the Word so the Word will work for you". Seasoned Christians and prayer warriors know this because they've likely already skipped this intro and went straight to the prayers. They're seasoned, so they know what they need and will go right to it. I write this for Christians who might be asking "Why is this person attacking me?" or "Why is this trial so hard? I don't understand. I didn't do anything wrong." I hear the Holy Spirit saying, "Don't give up" because didn't do anything wrong. If you come under severe spiritual attacks, chances are it's because you have such a powerful gift and so many awesome and amazing gifts inside of you that the devil doesn't want you to reach your blessings and know who you really are in Christ.
So why the attacks? Remember, there are attacks that God sometimes allows for the crushing to get the oil to come out of us for the work ahead. The prayers are so you can grow in your prayer life, just like you grow in your faith walk. When you pray, it's by God's authority that you can bring strongholds down and break yokes of bondage from the enemy. The attacks are to help you build spiritual strength so you can stand.
One Sunday at the altar call, everyone was at the front of the church, and the pastor asked, "Who wants God to use them? Who wants to say yes to God's will?" and I could literally hear people saying "Unnh," as they rollded their eyes and crept out of line. I was in shock! I'd never seen people back out of an altar call! I didn't understand at the time that the calling on your life requires great faith that you have to build up as God will take you through huge trials to break your flesh and grow your faith and spiritual gifts, so trust God.
Not sure you understand why you're attacked first so you won't praise God or your finances are attacked so you're distracted and can't send offerings to God? Hear this powerful word from Pastor Perry Stone
God Will Show You The Way - Trust His Timing
I write this so you'll know that powerful prayers are required because you're on a new level. Remember, milk, babies, manna. They go hand in hand. As you mature though, the milk dries up, the manna stops, and God expects you to work the Word using your new spiritual authority so He can show you how to start eating solid meat. Remember, we get through all those afflictions because God is with us helping us to. So when you're faced with a wall or a mountain, don't revert back. That's what the devil wants. Come out from among them and don't go back to Egypt or Lodebar, but stand firm and put on the whole armor of God:
God has more and better in store for you. Just like Jesus broke bread and He was broken, so are we, to rid our lives of the flesh. Trust God's timing and build your faith walk in Him. It is the only way. At just the right time, He will reveal Himself and show you the way because Jesus is the way. Let Him show you that He is the Almighty God in your life. And don't worry. God's got you!
Lastly, for someone that needs it, the Holy Spirit had us post this special message today. He said to tell you, "Cheer up. It's going to get better. Your help/the money is on the way. New money is coming to you."
Use these helpful prayers to cancel attacks and break yokes in your life. When you are faced with demonic delays and yokes of the enemy, every demon has to flee from your life when you go into prayer and call on Jesus:

Atomic Power of Prayer:
Father, in the name of Jesus, the Author and Finisher of my faith, I arise to establish my legal right and dominion over this region and over every territory which You have given me jurisdictional authority. According to Daniel 9:4, You are the only great and dreadful God, keeping the covenant and mercy to them that love You and to them that keep Your commandments. I appeal to the God who said in 2 Chronicles 7:13-16, “if I shut up heaven that there be no rain, if I command the locust to devour the land, or if I send pestilence amongst my people, if My people which are called My name shall humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and I will forgive them of their sin. I will heal their land. Now Mine eyes shall be open and My ears attend to their prayer that is made into this place. For now have I chosen and sanctified this house that My name may be there forever. And Mine eyes and heart shall be perpetually there.” I declare that this place is sanctified, I present my body as a living sacrifice, by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, my Savior and Redeemer: make these prayers holy and acceptable unto You. I confess my sins and the sins of our fathers, let grace and mercy prevail over us. I declare I have free passage for my prayer to ascend into the realm of the supernatural and will not be earth bound. I come into agreement with the Supreme Court of heaven: I am seated in heavenly places with Christ Jesus, and therefore war from this plane and realm. I declare that the anointing of God breaks every yoke. Open every portal and assign angels to reinforce me as I advance into new levels, new dimensions, new realms, and territories. Let there be a breakthrough in the heavens. I tap into apostolic and prophetic things. I shatter glass ceilings. I smash spiritual bars and iron membranes. I declare a breakthrough atmosphere is established. I recalibrate the spiritual climate and decree that every bit of lukewarmness must be replaced with the fire and the zeal of God. Baptize me with the Holy Ghost and with fire. Let there be fire in my mouth as I advance in this prayer. I take authority over demonic and satanic atmospheres and climates created by cultic activities, destiny altering images, incantations, ill spoken words, witchcraft, hostile environments, fear, terrorism, ritual, hatred, ethnic hatred, and violence, in the name of Jesus. I command the spiritual climate to shift, economic climate shift, social climate shift, cultural climate shift, educational climate shift, political climate shift, and ecclesiastical climate shift. I command that the atmosphere must be filled with the Glory of God. Father fill the atmosphere, fill the environment with your Glory. I alter this environment and declare it is now suitable for my ministry to thrive, my relationships to thrive, my children to thrive, my loved ones to thrive, my business to thrive, my ideas to thrive, my nation to thrive, my government to thrive, and my economy to thrive. I establish a supernatural environment for miracles to occur. I war in the name of Jesus and by His shed blood, which is the shed blood of the Lamb, the Lamb that was slain before the foundations of the world. By Him, hallelujah, evil must be destroyed. For this reason was the son of God made manifest, that He would destroy the works of the darkness. I decree and declare the works of darkness is destroyed. I decree every curse over my life is reversed. I break through from prevailing and sustaining powers of darkness over this region in the name of Jesus. I arrest every demonic spirit through Your Word. Empower the angelic hosts to war in my behalf. I resist territorial strongholds. I sever ego-entanglements. Open the gates of psychological prisons and deliver us from the spirits of shame, embarrassment, harassment, and iniquity. Deliver us from the spirits of strongholds and pride. Deliver me from stigmatization, emotional blackmail, social impediments, seductions, satanic limitations, satanic illusions, addictions, demonic restrictions, cultural entrenchments, cultic strongholds, bewitchments, traditions, anti-Christ cultural environments. Free me from limitations, handicaps, and impediments. I refuse to be marginalized, stigmatized, immobilized, terrorized, characterized, criticized, tolerated, censored, misjudged, mishandled, or mismanaged. I wear a cloak of favor. I disengage demonic triggers and psychological buttons. I short circuit them.
I am nonresponsive to demonic depression. I establish my superior authority over this region by the blood of Jesus, the Word of God, by the Spirit of God. For this reason I remind You that the Son of God was made manifest, that He would destroy the works of the devil. I decree that the works of the devil are destroyed. It is destroyed over this region, it is destroyed over my neighborhood, it is destroyed over my body, over my family, over my children, over my loved ones, over my ministry, over my pastor, over my doctor and lawyer, and over my government. The evil works of the devil is destroyed. I declare and decree that the plans and the purposes of God shall prevail. The word of God prevails. Hallelujah! His will prevails. My prophetic purpose and destiny prevails. My vision prevails. My business prevails. My ideas prevail. I prophecy to the four winds, that things that have died prematurely and dried up because of satanic activities are quickened and come to life. I declare that the pieces of my destiny and financial ministerial relational puzzle: it comes together. My life comes together. I decree, hallelujah, that my money is coming together. My business is coming together. My relationships are coming together. My family is coming together. The body of Christ is coming together. My ministry is coming together. My marriage and my family are coming together. My budget is coming together. Our governments are coming together. Our leaderships are coming together. Everything is working together according to Your will. Father I thank You, with You nothing is impossible. So therefore, Father, I decree and declare, hallelujah, that the floodgates of heaven are opened. Let it rain. Spirit of God usher us into times of refreshing that You promised will come from the presence of God. I decree and declare that there shall be no more demonic droughts, no more demonic dryness, distress, disease, depression, and no more demonic drama. We come in the volume of the book. It is written of us. We come in the power of God, hallelujah, the God of Joshua, hallelujah, and we decree and declare that every impenetrable wall must come down in the name of Jesus and in the power of the most High God. I shatter barriers, blockages, barricades, and boulders. I declare that I am advancing according to the purposes, and the plan of God. The cause of Christ is advancing in this region and in every region. I am promoting and proclaiming that Jesus Christ is Lord of Lords and King of Kings, that the kingdom of God has come. He is King over every region and His kingdom is at hand. We take authority over every demonic stronghold and break the cords and bands of wickedness. We shake evil out of their illegal place and take our rightful seat of authority. We take authority over Satanic altars in the mountains. We stand in the spirit of Elijah and we decree and declare that the God that answers by fire—He is God. We decree that the fire of the Lord destroys every altar. We command that the powers of the enemy be broken off of our lives, be broken off of our ministry, be broken off of our home, be broken off of our mind, and be broken off of our relationships. They are broken off of our body, off of our life, off of our children, off of our marriage, off of our spouse, off of our business, and off of our practices. We decree and declare, hallelujah, that evil has no control over our lives anymore. We break free of evil control, hallelujah, of the enemy. We break free of evil patterns, fetishes, charms, amulets, good luck pieces, talisman, chains, stocks, bondages, incantations, addictions, generational curses, spirits of inheritance, death, poverty, apathy, hopelessness, abuse, helplessness, prayerlessness. We decree and declare-they are destroyed. Wherever and whatever the witches, the warlocks, the sorcerers, the sages, the religions manipulators are using as points of contacts to release curses via pictures, clothing, strands of hair, personal items, garments, bowls, dust, blood, voodoo-dolls, altars, amulets, bowls, water, brooms, mixes, whatever it is: I command it to be disintegrated in Jesus name. Hallelujah! We interrupt lines of communication between familiar spirits and sever illegal activities designed to frustrate the plans and purposes of God in our lives. We command every evil attachment to be broken. We command cords to be broken. We command every stronghold to be broken. We take authority over the spirits of doubt, enmeshment, entanglement, fear, terror, confusion, unbelief, intimidation, sin, and iniquity. We release ourselves from strongholds of the enemy and over dark spiritual forces which bombard our mind. Father, in the name of Jesus, as we stand to pray, we break through the strongholds of the enemy by the hand of God, the finger of God, the Word of God, the blood of Jesus Christ, the fire of the Holy Spirit, the anointing of God, hallelujah, by apostolic interventions and angelic assistance. Father, we arise in the spirit of Zerubbabel, hallelujah, and Elijah, and speak grace, grace to the mountains and their diabolical altars. Father cause them to be destroyed by Your fire.
