An SOS Prayer

 

A lot of people wonder if the devil is real. Unfortunately, he is real and we can see the results of his work all around us. The devil would prefer we don’t think he is real. Then we won’t have our guard up and he can trick us with his secret, silent, devastating manipulations.


Early one morning I had a dream. I had gone on a trip with a group of people. I don’t think they were Christians. After coming back some weird things happened.


At first I didn’t recognize it but then I said, “I know, that was harassment by the devil.” I said this in a room full of people and one lady said, “Didn’t you pay those people?” I said, “Pay what people?” She didn’t answer. I told everyone that only God could stop harassment and that the devil was stronger than people but God was stronger than the devil. He is the One we must go to for help.


When I went back to Jim in 1998, I experienced a lot of demon harassment. It started within minutes of entering the house. I was sitting on the couch in the living room and I had just prayed silently that the demons would have to leave the room.


Immediately, I heard a noise on the window sill. It sounded like water dripping but it wasn’t raining out.  They didn’t like it because I had prayed that they would have to leave. I was sure it was demon harassment and so I prayed some more and the dripping noise began to die down and finally stopped.



An Open Door


Sometimes it was a light knocking on the wall or a creaking sound. Something was giving the demons an open door or a right to harass me at this house.


I had never experienced harassment like this prior to moving back there. Jim told me that some people had stayed in the house, during the time I was gone, that were involved in devil worship.


The demon harassment happened frequently in our house. Eventually the events of harassment got less and less and finally after several months they stopped completely. Since that time I have never been harassed in this way.



A Powerful Prayer


I learned a lot from this experience. Every time the harassment would start I would say my  “SOS Prayer.” I learned how to pray this prayer by reading the Bible and some other books about Spiritual Warfare. I want to share it with you.

Demon Harassment

The devil would prefer we don’t think he is real. Then we won’t have our guard up and he can trick us with his secret, silent, devastating manipulations.

Recently in Bible Class, one of my student’s said, “You know that prayer you taught us, it works!” I had given my Bible students this prayer only a couple of days before that. When I described to them how I was harassed by demons, one girl said, “Footsteps.” She must have been harassed with sounds of footsteps.


I just praise God that she tried this prayer and found out that God is more powerful than the devil. I also praise God because she was bold enough to tell me that  the prayer had worked for her. She’s in the 7th grade.



The Blood of Jesus


During the time I was being harassed, I often prayed this prayer many times a day. The demons had to leave but unfortunately, because the Devil is prince of this world, they had the right to come back.


They actually don’t have any rights. But God has decided to give them this right as part of the the War we are in between God and Satan. It seems as though God has set up certain rules for the War and as part of these rules He has temporarily given Satan certain rights. These of course He could take away at any time and He will at the end of the world.


It was very interesting because when I prayed my SOS Prayer nothing changed until I got to the words the, “blood of Jesus.” This consistently happened every time. The phrase, “the blood of Jesus,” is extremely powerful. It was His shed blood that saved us from our sins.


The devil hates to hear about the “blood of Jesus.” Every time I got to those words in my prayer the noises would start to gradually subside and then completely stop. Sometimes I had to pray a lot because the demons would leave but at times they were soon back. This wasn’t the usual case but it did happen sometimes.   


Jim never acknowledged that demons were making these noises. He came up with various explanations. But I’m a scientist and I know from the laws of Physics that the only explanation for these sounds is that they were supernatural.


And since God never does this sort of thing it had to be from the Devil. Demons want to harass us so much that they steal all the joy out of a Christian’s life so we will go back to the world to try to find joy.


This prayer can be used for all kinds of situations. It is not just for when you hear noises or footsteps. If there isn’t time to pray a longer prayer I will just say, “I claim the blood of Jesus.” I recently had another dream. In this dream I was delivered from a very scary situation by praying this shorter prayer. Sometimes I don’t know what to pray for so I will just say “I claim the blood of Jesus for this situation.”


You can pray this prayer for other people. When I was with Jim and he was being abusive I would pray this for him and the situation would noticeably improve, at least for little while. But if the person them self isn’t asking for help, the demons especially have a right to come back.


This is one of the most powerful prayers you can prayer. I encourage you to try it out when you are in a difficult situation. Test God and just see what He will do for you.


Often harassment from demons is silent. This kind is probably harder to identify than if you heard noises. But demons can give us all kinds of bad feelings, make us sick, cause us to make mistakes, and take any bad situation and make it worse.

SOS Prayer


Dear Father in Heaven,

Please forgive me for my sins.


I claim the “blood that Jesus shed on the cross” and ask that your Holy Spirit will bind all the powers of Satan that are in or around me and in the name of Jesus” and by “the blood of Jesus,” please cast them out and away from me.


Please bring angels from Heaven to surround me with a heavenly atmosphere of light and peace and hope and joy and love.
