There is power in praying against enemies

The word ‘against’ looks a bit out of place when used in Christian content but we need to call it what it is. A prayer against enemies is a must-have tool for every Christian. Enemies exist. Some of them are harmless while others are lethal. 

When we pray for the enemy, we are usually ready to bless them. That is what the Bible tells us! However, we must distinguish between a prayer for the enemy and a prayer against enemies. One is for the good of the enemy, and the other is a prayer to fight the evil spirits that lead them to behave the way they do. 

What if we got a little deeper into our enemies' ploys? 

Let us take an example of the opposite of enmity. We bless others with what we have, whether small or large. It is similar in the enemies' industries. They attack based on the quantity of hostility in them! 

One enemy would not dare get to the worst-case scenarios like killing! The other can kill without feeling guilty. It depends on the quantity of fury based on the presence of the evil one.  

Dangerous enemies do not just talk. They go the extra mile to act. These enemies go beyond what we can imagine to carry out their missions. They fight the Lord’s plans.  

However, we need to note that we are dealing with the evil spirits in our enemies and not the people.  

It is also good to have an idea of who our enemies are before we begin to pray against them. Let us be cautious not to pray against ourselves! 

The world is a battleground. We are competing for resources. The evil one has never accepted defeat. He continues to fail but never gives up.

A good prayer against enemies is a burning fire the devil cannot stand.
