BIBLE VERSE: Hebrews 7-10
FIRE SCRIPTURE: James 5:16; Joshua 10:12; 2 Kings 4:33-35 (KJV)
James 5:16; Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Joshua 10:12; Then spake Joshua to the LORD in the day when the LORD delivered up the Amorites before the children of Israel, and he said in the sight of Israel, Sun, stand thou still upon Gibeon; and thou, Moon, in the valley of Ajalon.
2 Kings 4:33-35;
33 He went in therefore, and shut the door upon them twain, and prayed unto the LORD.
34 And he went up, and lay upon the child, and put his mouth upon his mouth, and his eyes upon his eyes, and his hands upon his hands: and he stretched himself upon the child; and the flesh of the child waxed warm.
35 Then he returned, and walked in the house to and fro; and went up, and stretched himself upon him: and the child sneezed seven times, and the child opened his eyes.

What we need nowadays are prayers that baffle the enemy. The Holy Spirit is leading us to the realm of such prayers today. I prayed for a man from a family of thirteen. In the year that he met me for prayers, I asked him about his Christian experience. His accurate answers indicated that he had genuine salvation, sanctification and Holy Ghost baptism experiences and to a certain extent, he could also pray. After listening to his tragic story, I counselled him to change his prayer pattern. I told him to pray at midnight, telling the Lord to ordain terrifying noises against his enemies. Although he found the prayer point very strange, he nevertheless started praying when he got home. When he slept, he heard terrifying gun-shots comparable to the sounds of war weapons in normal wars. The artillery was against him. But he saw an angel of God deflecting all the shots away from him. He then had a better understanding of the nature of the battle against him.
Beloved, the devil’s kingdom is carefully organised to achieve the agenda of the powers of darkness anytime, anywhere. Just like the human government is organized in such a way that power and authority are operated from the centre to the grassroots, the devil too has princes of darkness in charge of different regions of the world and they all carry out activities in the invisible realm.
Apart from the presence of God’s children that always provokes the devil’s anger as it was with the children of Israel while in Egypt and Babylon, another factor that attracts fierce battles from the kingdom of darkness is when the plan and purpose of God for His children are being worked out. Daniel’s prayer was so powerful that it affected the second and third heavens. In the second heaven, princes of darkness tried to hinder Daniel’s prayers. In the third heaven, some angels of God suspended their activities to respond to Daniel’s prayers. He prayed on earth and heaven responded. If you pray a similar power-packed prayer, the headquarters of satan will give way and heaven will prevail on your behalf. You must learn how to make use of prayer described in today’s devotional texts.
