PRAYER GUIDE, CLOSING THE DOOR AGAINST THE ENEMY, 06.03.19
Father, I ask that by Your Holy Spirit You will alert your people that they must “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Pet.5:8). Those who have been harrassed by demonic control through strongholds and familiar spirits must pay special attention to the need to close the doors against the Enemy – all the doors that were originally opened to him.
Bring revelations of how the Enemy has entered, what those strongholds are which have provided an entry point. Convict each one that needs to seek assistance for complete deliverance, upon that complete deliverance, enable each one to now close the doors. Convict each one of the weaknesses that continue to plague them, to be convicted of fleshly lusts & perversions, for Jesus/Yeshua Himself warned: “But I tell you that everyone who looks upon a woman to lust after her has already committed adultery with her in his heart” (Matt.5:28), and this applies to women as well as men. Convict each one of lustful desires that open doors to the Enemy, and make each one aware of the non-verbals which open doors. Bring to mind the mental/emotional activities that are evident to the Enemy, since they are detected in the eyes or in other forms of body language, even if not expressed verbally. Would You reveal to people how the Enemy knows this, and demons assigned, track individuals just waiting and watching for an opportunity to take hold of them. Make Your people aware of how the Enemy provides opportunities & temptations by placing images, sensate activities or individuals to entertain the mind, titillate the senses, stimulating lustful imaginings, fantasies, luring the individual into the corresponding behaviour.
Impress upon Your people how their thoughts and desires are stimulated and evoked by what is seen, & motivate each one to take responsibility for their own responses.
I pray, Father, for people to come back to You as their FIRST LOVE, for it is as we walk in intimacy with You that we surrender all lusts of the flesh, and lose all interest in worldly things, desires, and activities. I pray each one would walk in The Word, walk in The Spirit, and thus heed John’s advice: “Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For everything in the world—the desire of the flesh, the desire of the eyes, and the boasting of life—is not from the Father but from the world. The world is passing away along with its desire, but the one who does the will of God abides forever” (1 John 2:15-17).
Convict each one that they must guard their eyes, heart, and minds by screening out those things which incite evil lustful thoughts, desires, fantasies, etc., whether it is TV, movies, internet – whatever forms of entertainment; that that must screen out those things which stimulate, trigger, or incite lustful thoughts and desires, placing temptations before them. I pray for each one to avoid those temptations, for “when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is full grown, it brings forth death” (James 1:15).
Grip each heart with vice grips (supernaturally) that each one will be brought to their knees in forgiving, confessing, repenting, as it pertains to each, for “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses” (Matt.6:14,15); and “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9). So lead each to “Repent and do the deeds done at first. Otherwise He will come to you and remove your menorah from its place—unless you repent” (Rev.2:5).
Oh, Lord, that each would come to such a place of passion to keep You as their First Love, fleeing from “youthful lusts; pursuing righteousness, faith, love, peace . . . . out of a pure heart. . . . avoiding foolish and ignorant disputes” (2 Tim.2:22–26), knowing that nothing trumps relationship with YOU. Let each one now walk in that shield “which can quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one” (Eph.6:16), and walk in the whole armour of God (Eph.6:10-16), closing the door against the Enemy, for the fiery darts and arrows will rebound off the shield of faith (Eph.6:11) if one is wearing the whole armour daily 24/7. Bring such a determination now, for each one to begin to walk in this daily, in Jesus/Yeshua’s holy Name. Amen.
