Your world was calm and settled, you’re an effectual, fervent prayer warrior, all is good and then chaos breaks out in your life. This is an indication that your prayers are getting through! Praying is not for the faint of heart. It is a battlefield.
When we pray, our prayers rise through the heavens to reach God’s ears. When He hears our prayers, He sends down blessings. Praying is warfare and in the case of Daniel, blessings were held up in the second heaven while Michael the Archangel fought the demons that were holding back blessings headed to earth.
“In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.” Psalm 5:3 NKJV
The second heaven can be considered Satan’s headquarters. From this position he and his fallen angels do everything they can to bring destruction on the earth and resist the purposes of God’s grace, blessings, and mercy.
Yes, heavens plural, there are three heavens. The first is the visible heaven, it is our atmosphere, the second heaven is the evil ones’ headquarters, and the third heaven is where God lives. (Derek Prince, pp 128)
The sole purpose of the evil one is to kill, steal and destroy. If prayers are breaking through the heavens and people are being blessed, the evil one in an uproar. We (prayer warriors) become the enemy. Satan doesn’t focus on his followers, those who live a worldly life, he focuses on God’s people, those working to advance the kingdom of God.
Satan is 100% pure evil, and he has a plan to destroy our lives. Satan is our enemy, like it or not. The battle is between good and evil, and we are the prize. Satan desires to keep us from all that God wants for us. He is the enemy of all people, followers of Christ or not.
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” John 10:10 NKJV
As our prayers are being answered, he goes on the offensive and stirs up the atmosphere around us. He manipulates circumstances and situations against us. He may cause friction, chaos, loss, and illness, anything that can deter us from our mission. This is deception, he causes us to use our energy to address the things he created around us to dilute and weaken our impact as Prayer Warriors by disrupting our persistent prayer time.
It is our responsibility to learn to discern the battleground and figure out our strategy to succeed. Do we give up our time in prayer with the Lord to address the chaos the evil one created around us, or do we get up earlier, use our lunch time and go to bed a little later to maintain our prayer time? We have to learn to distinguish with our spiritual ears and eyes what is moving around us. “Discernment for the believer is seeing and understanding as God sees and understands. It is the ability to make godly judgments and right appraisals.” (Charles Stanley, pp 53)
When the world turns upside down, take time to discern what is happening and how you will approach it. Do not allow the evil one to dissuade you from your prayer time. We cannot afford to be deceived and sidelined. Our prayers matter and people lives are affected by our praying. Each of our prayers is requesting blessings and resolve to life’s situations and circumstances. The failure to pray for others and you leaves everyone prey to the evil ones’ plan for our lives, to remain slaves to him and the world.
Do not be deceived, always look through your spiritual lens and cast the evil ones’ efforts as far as the east is from the west, Psalm 103:12. Stay focused on your prayers until you see the blessings manifest. They may manifest in a recognizable way, or may take another form as God sees fit to advance you into the kingdom. Our prayers may be answered right away, sometime in the future, or not at all, but every prayer has impact and outcomes. We may see some answers to prayers and may not see others. It is all dependent upon how God sees fit to include us in the blessings.
The most important thing is to never stop praying until God leads you to do so. Just make certain you can discern who you are listening to. See my earlier Post, The Voice of God.

The message was very good. I enjoyed reading the scriptures. Gods people need to really to wake up and realize that Satan and his people want to destroy born again Christians. We need to fast and pray and really love each other learn how to effectively do spiritual warfare. Gods people must take back everything Satan has stolen our peace in our mind health finances relationships. Every Christian need laser discernment to recognize Satans plans his people years ahead of time how to avoid the devils traps. Every plan of satan has been cancelled. In Jesus Name.
You should purchase the book called ” Unbroken Curses” buy Dr Rebecca Brown out of amazon your local bookstore. Ms Brown talks about why there is trouble in a Christians life and to overcome witchcraft and be free. There are prayers in this book that you can pray to be free. Also I play gospel music in my house and praise the Lord in heaven for peace in my mind and wisdom from Christ. I also burn candles open my windows and commend all demons and human spirits to leave our house in Jesus Every Christian should anoint every room with Holy with Name. Prepare for world war 3. The Lord spoke to me in my spirit and showed me through a dream that I had recently a week ago. God in heaven is judging gods people and the world because most of the Christians will not live Holy a holy life style really serve god and take a real stand against evil. A lot of the so called Christians are really in the occult and need to have the demons casted out of them and really accept Jesus Christ as there savior and get baptized and receive the Holy spirit.
2 Thessalonians chapter 1 verse 8 said bringing judgement on those who do not wish to know God and who refuse to accept Gods plan to save them through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.Verse 9. They will be punished in everlasting Hell, forever separated from the Lord never to the glory of Gods power. Famine dead bodies in the streets and Hell is coming to the earth in 2018. This message is a warning from the Lord in heaven to the world.

Thanks for referring the book. I agree and do much of the same as you. Have you read Waging Prophetic Warfare by Jennifer LeClaire? It’s a good book. I have been using Prayers that Rout Demons by John Eckhardt for years. It’s important to anoint the rooms in our home and entrances. Thank you for sharing. I hope Christians wake up. God gave me the title Young Christian Warriors because the time is coming near and we need to get prepared. He doesn’t want anyone to perish, but many will if they don’t accept His Salvation and govern themselves according to the Word.

I would Finally warn everyone about Hell 2 Thessalonians verse 8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.Verse9 They shall be punished with everlasting destruction away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of Gods power.
Romans 8:9 You however , are not in the flesh but in the Spirit if in the Spirit of God dwells in you, anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to Christ. I would purchase the book called “Unbroken Curses buy Dr Rebecca Brown out of your local book store.
