This may be why our prayers go unanswered and we feel defeated at times. Is it because we do not guard our mouths, thoughts and speech? I think so, and the Word of GOD agrees! Sharon
We read and are warn to watch what we say about others, In Ecclesiastes 10:20, Don’t insult the king, not even in your thoughts; and don’t insult the wealthy, not even in your bedroom; for a bird in the air might carry the news, a creature with wings might repeat what you said. This verse is very revealing regarding what goes on in the unseen spiritual realm where Satan is the prince of the power of the air (Eph 2:2) and the ruler of this world (John 16:11). It is telling us to be careful what you say or even think—even in private, for a god (or demon) might reveal it to it’s lord or king. In other words, a false god or demon spirit might convey what you’ve thought or said to its demon master, or even to Satan, who is the god of this age (2 Cor 4:4). Remember,“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Eph 6:1). You may want to use this wording along with these scriptures when praying or interceding for someone else in prayer/spiritual warfare!
- Ask YHVH (GOD) to cover your prayers under the blood of Yeshua(Jesus) (Rev 12:11)
- To bind the (demonic) strong man (Matt 12:29; Mark 3:26–27cp. Rev 20:2)
- To send his angels to protect you against the enemy’s plans to thwart(to frustrate or defeat) your prayers (Ps 91:11–12; Heb 1:14)
- To send confusion to our spiritual enemies (Ps 35:4, 26; 40:14; Jer 20:11).
Enjoy your Sabbath rest and may Yehovah be in our mist!
