Prayer For Help in a Spiritual Attack - A Prayer When You Don’t Have the Answers
We are living in a severe warzone and continuously facing spiritual battles. It isn’t easy to find peace in the face of a spiritual warzone. We often don’t see that the biggest place that we deal with spiritual battles is our head. The Bible says, “They all ate the same spiritual food and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ. Nevertheless, God was not pleased with most of them; their bodies were scattered in the wilderness” (1 Corinthians 10:3-5). There a number of satanic strongholds that hold us captive that we need to be aware of. The enemy will use these battles taking place in our heads against us and attempt to attack us daily. One of the greatest spiritual weapons we can use in these battles is prayer.
If you are Christian, you are not immune to spiritual attack. In fact, the devil sees you as his biggest target. He wants you to lose sight of God and place your trust in him. If you are not on guard, the devil can separate you from God. When we pray and put on the full armor of God, we have the power to ward off these spiritual attacks.
When you’re under spiritual attack, the enemy will do everything to lure you into quick fixes. He hopes you will stumble and try to turn to him instead of God when you’re in search of answers.
If you are struggling in your relationship, he will sabotage the way you view your relationship so that it will break down. If you are battling a physical ailment, he will try to make you think that God is not present or cares about what you’re going through.
James 4:7 gives us a wonderful assurance during this spiritual attack, “Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.” If you are in search of the answers, turn to God with this prayer.
I know that You are ready to answer my prayer in Your perfect time and way.
Help me to trust in the plan You have for me in this especially difficult and critical time in my life. Amen.
