Prayer: Overcoming Attacks by the Enemy

Prayer: Powering through and Overcoming Attacks of the Enemy

One of the most important ingredients in overcoming the attacks of the enemy is nutrition: nourishing the spirit by feeding on the Word of God. Someone said to me: “I have problems when I study the Word. I don’t remember most of what I read.”

Well, you may not remember everything you ate for the past year, but it doesn’t necessarily mean your body was not being nourished.

Get to know God

Spend time with His Word and in His presence. Spend time in prayer, praise, and thanksgiving. Prepare yourself to overcome the small battles in your life so that you can take on the Goliaths.

David wasn’t afraid of Goliath because he had previously overcome the lions and other creatures through his faith in God. As you overcome the smaller battles, your faith grows. As you learn to listen to the voice of the Master, you understand what to do and when to do it.

Are you still afraid of the lions in your life and therefore unable to face the Goliath ahead of you? Or are you a giant killer, moved by your faith and trust in God? Let’s pray.

Prayer when attacked by the enemy

Gracious and Merciful Father, I magnify Your Most Holy and Precious Name! Even as I try to praise You, dear Father, I am tormented by thoughts of some past situations.

These thoughts have left me completely broken and have stolen my inner peace. I feel totally defeated.

Today I bow before You in desperation because, even when I try to think positive thoughts, I am facing continuous ATTACKS by the enemy.

Psalm 84:11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord will give grace and glory; no good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.

1 John 5:4-8For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world – our faith.

I WILL overcome the attacks of the enemy

Almighty God, I believe that by worshiping and honoring You, I WILL overcome the attacks of the enemy. I tear down everything that the enemy has stripped from me.

Today, I bind up every evil force that is attempting to penetrate my mind, heart, soul. I declare according to your word that whatever I bind on earth will be bound in heaven.

If I have not yet forgiven, Lord, give me the grace and strength to forgive. Help me to trust again.

James 4:7-8 Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded.

Romans 12:2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Choosing to stand against the attacks of the enemy

Abba Father, I declare that today is MY DAY! I choose to stand against the attacks of the enemy! He will not have further control over me.

I also declare that I will renew my mind with the things of You, as the battle has already been won.

My confession is that, by the FINISHED work of Jesus, I can claim VICTORY over my life.

I have the peace of mind and the assurance that the Holy Spirit continues to dwell in me and grants me peace. In the name of Jesus, I renounce those thoughts that hold my mind captive. These things I declare in Jesus’ name, SO BE IT…AMEN!

Matthew 18:18 Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Weariness is nothing more than an attack from Satan to sidetrack you and keep you from fulfilling God’s amazing plan for your life.

  17. I was looking for a prayer to use as a spiritual force against the enemy. He has been attacking my family for years. I cant and wont stand for it any longer! I am so glad the Lord woke me and led me to your page. I prayed the prayer and read the comments. I am feeling stronger already.Please keep my family in your prayers as we are dealing with serious warfare. My older son struggles with Schizoaffective disorder and has ended up in prison because of it. He was on the brink of suicide a year ago, but God intervened. He is still facing serious charges. I am sole caregiver for his nine year old son, and he suffers from mental issues as as well. My other son suffers from severe panic attacks. I have been divorced five years and this is quite overwhelming to deal with. I would certainly be grateful for any and all prayers and words of encouragement anyone has to offer. Thank you for taking time to read this and God Bless!

    1. I’m praying for your situation. I pray for your sons to be delivered from the demons of rejection and pride. The veil to be lifted so they will see the light of the Gospel and their minds will be able to comprehend it. The demon of pride is bound so that they will humble themselves before God and find salvation. In Jesus mighty name,Amen!

  25. Alexandria Garcia

    Petunia you must understand that those are the works of the enemy!Do you not understand!The enemy wishes to only turn you against the father Almighty.God of Abraham,but know he has heard your prayer and he is listening and remember that God the father loves you and knows you are suffering!We are harassed by the enemy,stalked and hounded.Haven’t you ever heard the Devil never rests! Remember what is done too you shall be done on others! Venages is mine through christ!Pray to the holy spirit until you feel it come!At least 3 times and kneel and cry out to thy father for he shall surely anserw you!Do not be afraid!!!For he is with you!Bless you child.Just see with thy eye’s and listen be silent and still.There are many ways the lord speaks too you!Through your surrounding’s and you shall see the truth.Maybe you are a solider of God!Which is why the enemy works against you!See this,feel this!The enemy knows,Petunia!He is after all that serves and loves the Lord!You could be called to serve!Know that the father of lies,the serpent tries to rob,kill and steal.Do not let him to this to you and your family!Pray!Pray!Ask God to forgive you and help you understand thy word.Go in peace!

  26. It is extremely difficult to forgive, when the words and actions of the one who lied on me for many years have had such a negative impact of my life – my reputation, my health and my income. Almost everyday I am confronted with situations that cause me to remember the liar, the persons who still believe the lies, the ones who do not believe them but yet spread them, and the ones who acted on the lies, some knowing that they were lies. I have not even been given a hearing, just swept aside like garbage. God has to help me to forgive as I’m incapable of forgiving them on my own. God please help me, in Jesus’ name with thanksgiving, Amen.

    1. Petunia I can relate to your struggle, you worded your plea to God wonderfully. You must be strong and forgive the enemy, its the only way. I still struggle with the enemy, but praying eases my frustration and anger. I will pray for you too, God be with you, Amen

    2. Ms Petunia I pray all is well in your life for I too have been attacked by Satan and his angels, my child . It’s been hard but I had to first confess my sins one by one to God, then humbly ask his forgiveness and repent..after that I felt my burdens just fall to the ground…. my burdens were lightweight .. then I started a prayer life and attended prayer worship with a group that prayed over me and my situation… i felt God’s spirit..then I got into The Bible for myself and God led me to scriptures that I needed… i attnd bible study and from there I receive more instructions from God and oh what a difference in my heart … believe that’s why I can testify as I am doing now. Remove self from the situation , be still and Let work his wonders in your life. Read psalms 35 that Talks about the enemy
      Love you and I’m praying for your deliverance

    3. Petunia you have to forgive to be forgiven! Let go and let God, It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord

  27. The prayers and testimonies have been uplifting. Gods goodness and mercy have followed me. I have continued to.see Gods work in my life even when I felt I do not deserve it.

  28. Dear Lord I receive everything that you have plan for me for the battle is not mine Lord it’s your thank you Father for your grace and mercy

  29. I praise You dear Heavenly Father,I keep my trust and my hope in You all day long.
    I believe in God the Father Almighty.He blessed me with His love and His mercy,and always be with me.
    I am full of grace and walk in righteousness,and the Holy Spirit of God stay in my heart.
    There is no enemy can attack or over power in my life.
    Thank you Lord,for this beautiful prayer.
    In Jesus mighty name I pray.
    Amen and Amen

    Thank you Bevjoy for the wonderful prayer above, I will pray it often because it comforts me and helps me to feel that I can with God help overcome the evil one’s torments.

    Please Father make Your ways known to all of us and lead us in the way of truth, and help us to hold the faith in unity of spirit, in the bond of peace, and in righteousness of life. Finally, we commend to Your Loving, Fatherly Goodness all those of us who are any way afflicted, or distressed, in mind, body, or spirit by the evil one and that it may please You to deliver comfort and relieve us, according to our heavy needs giving us patience in our suffering, and out of our pain Lord please bring Your Mighty, Holy Deliverance and Your Compassionate Understanding, so we may know, that just like in Bible times You are still able to Heal the Sick and bring Your Glorious Peace to any defeating situation. I am a Child of God bought and paid for, and the evil one may not touch me.

  33. Geevetha Mary Samuel

    Almighty Father,
    Bless this person who leads us in prayer.
    May she and family be blessed with all joys and looked upon with favour in Your sight.

    I pray too that
    Let us each one in the Christian walk
    Believe no enemy can attack or overpower
    When we are filled in Your spirits
    When we are armed with Your word and walk in righteousness.
