A while back, my husband Mike had a challenging week. He and several other members of the Intercessory Prayer team at our church were under spiritual attacks, especially with physical ailments.
But Mike is a prayer warrior, so when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord within Mike raises up a standard against him!
If you are facing a Spiritual attack, then prayer is your first line of defense against it.
Mike wrote this prayer for Spiritual warfare to encourage his fellow intercessors.
Mike’s story and prayer follows:
Good morning family of interceding praying warriors,
Praise be to God with grace and blessing to each and every one of you. A few of you are aware that ‘no-good lying wonder’ attacked my body again – in my knee this time.
Suddenly, this past Monday afternoon my left knee swelled up with pain that was almost unbearable. This was the first time I had experienced such an ordeal. I had to use some crutches to get around my house.
But thanks be to God for your prayers because sometime Wednesday afternoon I felt a small pop in my knee and the pain with the swelling started to subside. I was able to put pressure/weight on the knee with minimal discomfort.
By the time Kim arrived home from church I was, in my opinion, 89% healed. I am now 100% completely healed.
I am fully aware why the enemy is attacking me this way and that. I am also aware that he attacks you also.
Our enemy may be shrewd with his attacks but he is very stupid because he picked on the “right” man and the “right” group of people who will come against him and his kingdom with everything within us. With that being said:
Heavenly Father and in the name of Jesus, we honor & praise you this morning for being with us in all and everything.
It is our delight to honor and serve you in any capacity we can. We are truly honored that you read and hear our prayers and we know that you answer each and every one of them and for that we thank you.
We come to you this morning on behalf of “ALL” the Intercessors and are asking you to equip us for the fight that lies ahead of us in the spiritual which may be manifested in the physical against your arch enemy.
We know you have seen the multiple attacks that he has and is imposing on your people. However, nothing he does will stop any of us from pressing on and through to the very end of this assignment.
Our first offensive attack today against this demon is in the form of this digital prayer since the morning is still fairly new and the words in this prayer will be anointed words that will set the tone for my fellow warriors so that they will be on-guard throughout this day and every day.
I pray that each one will immediately release any bondage or stressful situation they may be going through. I pray that they stay and remain focused as they face situations today whether it be in the workplace, at home or in the public sector.
I pray that you heal their bodies immediately Father (RIGHT NOW IN THE NAME OF JESUS) so that the enemy know he “ain’t” stopping “nuttin” and so that your intercessors can focus on the matters that will disrupt his kingdom.
Father, you know what your intercessors are going through. May you touch and anoint each one today as confirmation that you have heard their prayer and are working accordingly on their behalf today!
For those who are concerned about their children who have to face the problems presented to them in the public schools, send your peace to the student(s) and to the parents for you are our Jehovah Nissi.
For those who have been attacked in their body with afflictions, diseases and ailments, send healing unto them for you are our Jehovah Rapha.
For those who are overwhelmed with the lack of financial stability, send them the knowledge and wisdom to be able to manage their finances then follow that up with an immediate supply of money to help them overcome their current situation as you are our Jehovah Jireh.
Speaking of the money Father, I pray that you take the money from the dope dealers, destructive rappers, crooked politicians and any other unsavory character, group of people or organization and give it to your people so that we can put it to good and Godly use. Why should our enemy have such tools at his disposal to use against your people?
We know you are in control and even now working on all of our behalf and for that we thank-you.
There is so much more I want to pray unto you Father which I shall do indeed. In the meantime, this digital prayer is dedicated to my fellow intercessors.
In Jesus’ name. Amen!
Your son and servant,
Be blessed with health, healing, and wholeness,

P.S. When it comes to weight loss, do you often know what you should do but have a hard time doing it?
I struggled with this issue on my own weight loss journey, but I discovered that “Nothing is different until you think differently.” – Pastor James MacDonald
The value of the Take Back Your Temple program is that you will learn how to think differently through using Biblical keys to overcome obstacles. You’ll discover how to win the Spiritual and mental battle that often causes us to become inconsistent and get off-track on our weight loss journey.

May I please use your prayer to share with my team and Pastor?
You certainly may. God bless you!
Thanks for the awesome prayer!
Remember we have the power to cast out demons and spirits of infirmity.
Its as simple as opening our mouths and speaking in the mighty name of Jesus.
You are absolutely correct, Christina – there is power in the name of Jesus!
Thank you for this powerful word. It always amazes me how HE always puts things in my path that always relate to me. I hurt my knee just this past Friday, prayed over it hoping I didn’t tear anything, went for an MRI, Glory he to God, negative for any tears, just a really nasty strain. Thank you Jesus, you see I also have a blind/deaf son in my care, and I didn’t know how I was going to manage him and a bumb knee. I also lost my job, but you know what? I’m not worried. I am a child of God and I know that he has me covered. God Bless you.
Thank you Kimberly & Michael for your ministry and prayers of intercession … the timing couldn’t be more perfect. Of course, that is how God’s timing works : ) I continue to be called to do more speaking, leading worship in song, writing books/articles/studies and work with fitness training clients for God’s glory. As a result, each time another opportunity comes up, the devil attacks my throat and my right arm, especially. So, I understand the knee issue, etc.
The last four weeks, for example, I have been battling painful ulcers in my throat, hoarseness and laryngitis, off and on. It wears me out. I have tendonitis in my right arm, making it difficult to show moves to fitness clients, get some of my own workouts in, and it’s painful to type, write. I am pushing through, and trying to give appropriate rest to my voice and arm, as well … not easy. I know these are spiritual attacks to the very things that allow me to share my God-given gifts/talents/resources.
So your prayer is so timely and I am humbled and grateful that you have shared it with us. I am praying for the attacks on you to also subside, so that you can give full strength in your ministries and in the various areas God calls you to serve.
You are making a difference!
Agreeing with you in prayers to our amazing Heavenly Father.
Blessings for a meaningful Holy Week and blessed Easter!

Amen in Jesus name. Thank you my father in the Lord for the wonderful prayer. In a remote coner of Africa I have said this prayer and I am believing God to heal my stomach which the enemy attacks to create fear in me and distruct me from praying and interceding for my family and friends. Please pray for me and my family for God’s protection and total healing to the Glory of His name and the frustration of the enemy. God bless you abundantly.
thank you mike and kim this came at a good time and day as I woke up this morning to listen to an open prayer line on the phone and I was in pain in my stomach and thighs I think it is the enemy trying to stop me from getting closer to the lord jesus Christ I have gotten back into going to church and I feel the enemy is trying to bring me down because of it but I will not let him do that in jesus name amen
YES YES YES AMEN!!! The gates of hell shall not prevail! 86 that lying, deceiving, destructive force from our lives!!
Amen my sister, I’m touching and agreeing with you on that.
I will pray for your husband and others too. 😀
Thank you, Sharon – we all need it!
I am fighting hard but know that Satan is trying to defeat me. This email came at a great time. I am staying the course and will continue to listen to the still small voice of the Lord ( I will never leave you or forsake you, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, In this world you may have trouble but take heart, I have overcome the world) not the loud voice of my circumstances. (YOU WONT LOSE WEIGHT, YOU WONT HAVE FINANCIAL PEACE. ITS TOO MUCH WORK AND YOU WILL GIVE UP BEFORE YOUR BREAKTHROUGH.) I am praying for your family and your ministry.
Praying for you Danel – you will be victorious!
It’s a pleasure to come into agreement with my brother in Christ . The bible says that we are more than overcomes through Jesus. Great prayer full of thankfulness and power .
Amen Sherry – the prayers of the righteous avail much!
Thank you. Perfect timing. I just saw today the movie: War Room. Convicted. Then this prayer.
Thanks for your comments! Mike and I saw the movie ‘War Room’ yesterday too. It was awesome!
Thank you for sharing, such a time when we face the spiritual warfare we must turn to immediate prayer. We are stronger in numbers facing evil. Praying for health and peace wearing our shield of armor.
Amen In Jesus Christ.
Amen! I’m touching and agreeing with you Linda 🙂
Please keep me and my family husband James , children Christiama,Kaitlyn, James jr. ,and Jessica in your prayers daily please,and thank you!
Thank you for sharing this prayer and never giving up in prayer and in His promises within His words! Amen
I have indeed prayed for you and your family (8-30-2015).
Please keep in mind that you have the power to pull down the enemy strongholds right now in the name of Jesus with your words and you know what you and your family need better than I do.
I am strongly encouraging you to indeed pray to God in the name of Jesus on behalf of your family and yourself; he already know what’s on your heart so open up to him.
God will indeed hear my prayers and he has but he would much rather hear the concerns that are on your heart from you; Alane’.
You are his daughter and you are precious and dear to him and don’t ever forget that.
You don’t need a long drawn out prayer for God. Praying is not about trying to impress God with strong eloquent words but rather a sincere conversation with our Father.
If you need something from him then just go to him as you would your earthly parents and make your request known.
Do remember to praise him and acknowledge him in your life. Do go to him and just talk with him about everything without asking for anything; sometimes God just want to hear our voice. After all, He is a real being in the Spirit with feelings and emotions.
To God be the Glory!
Amen brother! I am facing the same right now. I am to give a training this weekend on an evangelistic strategy, here in Brazil. It will be passed on to many regions of the country. Since one week I have lots of pain in my jaw… I started thinking that this might be spiritual and… I have opened my email with the link to this post! Please pray for me!
It saddens me to read about your pain Karolina. However, we both know that God is still in control.
I have prayed for you and I trust our Father that all is well with you.
Amen in the mighty name of Jesus The Christ!!!
Thank you for sharing…
Thank you for such a wonderful and powerful prayer
You are more than welcome my brother.
It is good to see men on this board 🙂
