There are many unusual things happening in the world today that can have no explanation other than spiritual warfare.
Here's a list of just a few new stories I have read and could find easily on the web:
Man Claims Demonic Possession in vandalizing Church;
Family in France jumps out of a window because they thought they saw satan;
Man cuts off mother's head;
Mother kills baby and eats brain
There have been many, many other stories like this in the news in the past couple of years. All you have to do is google certain words and you get the news stories...lots of them.
So, as I was in quiet time with the Lord this morning, the holy spirit impressed upon me the need to pray for things happening in the spiritual world of which we have no knowledge. It's hard to pray for something when you don't know what's going on, but as you can see from the news stories, people's lives hang in the balance there. My prayer, or yours, may be the difference in someone caving in to the demonic pressure in their life or the nudging of the Holy Spirit to get help, to do something or not do something.
Won't you take a few minutes each day to lift up people who are under spiritual attack and ask the Lord to intervene; to send His messengers to interrupt or assist, or to build a hedge of protection around, those whose lives are hanging in the balance in that day and time. We need to be praying that satan will be defeated in his quest to kill, steal and destroy mankind, that the persons under attack will turn their lives over to Christ and that God will be glorified in their lives.
I am feeling it in my spirit more and more each day that this is an extremely great need in the lives of people and that we need to be praying about it diligently. Remember, satan is a roaring lion prowling about seeking for whom he can destroy! David Wilkerson posted this on his blog today. He is able to protect us and others if we will just call on Him!
1/10/11 And now we have this. May the Lord lead you and protect you from evil in these days.
