The concept of warfare prayer

Prayer is an act of supplication or intercession directed towards God . The purpose of prayer in the Bible is to make your request or praise known to God . Through prayer, men and women of God were able to ask for deliverance, mercy , healing, miracles...... Prayer also helps a christian develop a deeper relationship with Christ and know the direction he wants their life to go. Jesus said said that prayer should be a private time between God and the worshipper . Jesus does not mean that it is wrong to pray with others , but the prayer should be sincere and for the right motive ( mathew 6:6). A believer in Christ has only one enemy and that enemy is called the accuser of the brethren/ satan or the devil ( Revelation 12:10) . This enemy and his assistants according the the Bible are described as unclean spirits ( mathew 12:43) . Spirits doesn’t have physical body called the flesh but they are invisible beings they cannot be seen with the optical eyes but they exist . They can use living things like animals, trees or humans to carry out their activities. No human weapon is good enough to defeat these evil forces called demons ( 2 corinthians 10: 4 ) neither can they be wrestled with physically ( Ephesians 6:12) . Under the old covenant these evil spirits could not be dealt with because the authority to drive them out was not available to them and Jesus the only authority had not manifested fully during time . Their means of dealing with unclean spirits was to kill the one possessed with them physically by stoning ( Exodus 22:18 , Leviticus 20:27 ) . JESUS the only authority drove out demons from a possessed man ( Luke 8:30) no natural object played a role anytime he faces these invisible beings ( mathew 8:16) he cast them out with words . The same authority is available to anyone who believes in Christ ( Luke 10:19 , colosians 2:15, Hebrews 2:14, 1 John 4 :4 , phillipians 2:10 , mark 16:17 , James 4:7 , mathew 28:18 , Romans 16:20 ) etc etc . Accept Christ and enjoy this benefits of the new covenant and set yourself and your family free from the bondage of the devil . A lot of things that happens in this world you consider as normal are not normal we are in a battle with beings we cannot see with our optical eyes
