50 WARFARE PRAYERS AGAINST THE ENEMY.
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.” Luke 10:19.
“For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:
For the weapon of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.
Casting down imaginations and every high thing that exalted itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” 2corinthians 10:3-5.
An enemy or adversary is one who contends and is turned against another or others with a design to oppose or resist them.
In biblical terms and in the context of this prayer, enemies are those forces of darkness who work day and night to thwart, dwarf or abort the life and destiny of God’s children, be they humans or evil spirits.
The Hebrew word for enemy(adversary) is translated as devil(Satan), which means to oppose, thwart or dwarf anyone in his purpose and destiny. It is therefore important for believers to know that at the root of every act of wickedness and oppression by that man or woman, witches, sorcerers, herbalists and occultist people is the devil himself. He disguises under this agent of his to afflict God’s children.
Satan was one of the angels of light and covering in heaven until he rebelled and waged war against God and his angels, he was defeated and cast out of heaven into the earth. Ezek 28:13-17. Since then, he has been waging war against the children of God. Rev 12:12.
Christians must realize that enemies are real and they constantly wage war against us, we must also understand that more real is the power of God at work in us and the weapon of warfare available to us to fight back and obtain victory. A great and effectual door of life is open to us, but we must contend with the enemies to clear off our path to possessing it. 1cor 16:9. Therefore, every believer must contend with the enemy to take delivery of what is ours in redemption. Deut 2:24.
For believers to wage good warfare and obtain victory in the warfare with the enemies, we must put on the whole armour of God. Let’s take a look at some of the armour of God for battle with the enemies.
We Must Come With Faith Resisting the Enemy Steadfastly. 1pet 5:8-9.
In the jungle when the lion roars, all other animals become afraid, even those who can kill the lion. That is what the enemy does. The enemy is constantly roaming about seeking whom to devour. He roars like a lion through the thoughts and imaginations of our heart to see who will fear and doubt what God says about our victory, so he can feast on that person. The devil must be resisted steadfastly in our thoughts, imaginations and actions and he will flee from us.
A soldier in the war front without a shield has signed up for death because the arrows of the enemy will kill him. What a shield is to the soldier is what faith is to the believer. It is the shield which we use to quench all the fiery darts (arrows) of the enemy. Eph 6:16. Without faith, a believer is defenseless and prone to the attack of the enemy. Faith in God and in His word, using it to resist the enemy’s attack is what guarantees believers victory over the enemies.
We must come with the helmet of salvation. Eph 6:17.
Salvation is the first step to obtain victory over the enemy, until you are separated from darkness to light, the forces of darkness still have a warrant on you. This forces only in the dark places and all those still in darkness are their subjects and are susceptible to attack and defeats. When you give your life to Jesus Christ, you are translated into the kingdom of light where the affliction of the enemy can’t hurt you when they come. You must be born again and remain so. 2cor 5:17, Eph 6:17.
We must be armed with the sword of the spirit. Eph 6:17.
The sword of the spirit is what opens the gate of the enemy and cuts his bars asunder. PS 107:16. The word of God is the sword of the spirit and any believer who is not armed with the word of God can’t have faith to contend and obtain victory over the enemy. Eph 617. The word of God is our sure weapon to wage against the enemy and obtain victory. Search out the word and use it to war against every enemy at any contrary situation in your life and you will see the word break that contrary situation in pieces. Jer 23:29.
We must come boldly. Heb 4:16.
Bold declaration of the word of God in faith is what guarantees victory over the enemy. When we resist the enemy boldly with faith in the word, he flees from us knowing that we are fully armed with the right weapon of warfare and the right attitude to obtain victory. Boldness shows the enemy that we know the power of victory at our disposal. Heb 4:16 , 1jn 5:4.
