There is a dynamic power in praying, and undisputed wonderful results, when we do fervently.

You DO NOT fight Spiritual Battles against the Devil with prayer(s), rather you prepare yourself and get yourself READY for battles by praying.
Prayer has its impact on You NOT God or the Devil. It moves you into God, it makes you broken, it wearies you of the world, it dehydrates you of luxury, and it weakens the flesh.
You do not wage war against Satan by praying. Real and effective prayer aligns you with God and connects you to Divine Realities. So that you will gain access into the mind and will of God for your life, access wisdom and revelation through His words, and assert His authority in you domain or sphere of influence.
No fall down and die or Holy Ghost fire prayer does anything to Satan. If at all you see any manifestation, Satan allows it to occur to delude you and keep you in perceptual and recurrent bondage.
That is why our brothers, the proponents of such beliefs, never experience real, true and lasting deliverance from the power of Satan. They keep going or organizing Annual or Monthly Deliverance and Power must change hands programmes; recycling but never progressing, having a form of deliverance but never free from bondage, experiencing a measure of change but with no real expression of God’s rest in their lives, professing Christianity but never growing Believers of Grace.
Satan thrives in an atmosphere of lies and delusion.
We do not conquer Satan by Praying; Christ already conquered him on the cross several years ago.
How then do we wage war against the Devil?
Our ONLY and POTENT offensive weapon is the SWORD of the Spirit; the WORD of God – CHRIST. And we have FAITH as our defensive weapon. We also need to hold up ourselves with the BELT of Truth, upon which all our armory holds up together.
To be effective against the devil, you must sharpen your sword, that is, you must enrich yourself with the Word of God.
I pray—asking the God of our Master, Jesus Christ, the God of glory—to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for his followers, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust him—endless energy, boundless strength!
