Praying defensively

Many have either not thought about or not stumbled upon the fact that if we allow the dark enemies of the Kingdom of Jesus to attack us they will. We live in a spiritual war zone. Most of us acknowledge that without realising that there are some practical things we can do about it in prayer.

1) Use your God given Family authority.  If you don't know what that looks like read the articles on authority

2) Get used to functioning well in declaration prayer. i.e. – What you say is what you get.

3) Listen to Holy Spirit as you pray so He can show you the bits and pieces you need to take care of.

Set boundaries and then clean out.

The first thing to do is to set up boundaries and exclude the enemy from your living zone.  (I tend to use natural boundaries as places to speak spiritual boundaries in place)
The second is to break the power of all curses against you, your family or anyone else in your living zone.
Then nullify the power of all witchcraft, directive prayer and every dark talisman in range of your zone.

Declare blessing

The cleanup is done, now set up your home/base zone with blessing. Speak in every blessing you can imagine and use. Invite Dad to make His presence manifest and effective whether you feel like it or not. Thank our Father that He is your Shield and very great reward.

I do this after every meeting because there will be dark bits of baggage or spirit stuff drop off as we pray for one another.

Living in a war zone means that we need defensive strategies and offensive strategies. The strategies I have come from listening to Dad. I am sure that there are others but the principles will be the same and centre on us knowing who we are as members of His Family and understanding how the enemy works.

[After praying together in a spiritual offensive “intercessory” meeting it is wise to set boundaries up against counter attack on all those present, their families and all they represent, issuing standing rebukes against all counterattack before it starts]
