Many times Christians will pray prayers that are soulish or completely inspired by their flesh and not God. Do you know that there could be curses pronounced over you by other well-meaning Christians? They decide to pray a prayer that they think is the will of God except it was inspired by demons or their own flesh.
The enemy can give false dreams that Christians would believe to be from the Lord and begin praying into them. When this occurs demons are actually activated to answer those prayers.
Imagine that these prayers were all being prayed over one person while the person in turn was praying to seek direction and guidance from the Lord. This would create quite a battle in the spiritual realm hindering the answered prayer for that one person and also possibly causing them to be confused or make the wrong decisions should the demon get to them with an answer before the Lord’s angels got there.
As a biblical example read Daniel 9. To summarize, Daniel is praying and while he is yet speaking with the Lord the angel Gabriel is dispatched and by his side answering the prayer.
Move over to Daniel 10 and you will notice that his prayers, even though he added fasting, were not answered until 3 weeks later. Why? Opposition and warfare between God’s angels and demonic powers.
Daniel 10:2-3 “At that time I, Daniel, mourned for three weeks. I ate no choice food; no meat or wine touched my lips; and I used no lotions at all until the three weeks were over.” Here is what the angel said when he finally showed up Daniel 10:11-14 He said, “Daniel, you who are highly esteemed, consider carefully the words I am about to speak to you, and stand up, for I have now been sent to you.” And when he said this to me, I stood up trembling. Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them. But the prince of the Persian kingdom Resisted me twenty-one days. Then Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me, because I was detained there with the king of Persia. Now I have come to explain to you what will happen to your people in the future, for the vision concerns a time yet to come.” Not only was the angel detained but he had to get help from the archangel Michael before he could get to Daniel with the answer.
You could be waiting for the Lord to give you His Prophetic Word for this year on your life and you are unable to receive that because there is a war in the heavenly realm because of soulish prayers that have been prayed over you as well as soulish prayers that you may have prayed on yourself.
You can only receive what God has planned for you when you let go of your past, unforgiveness, your own desires, wants and wishes. You have to be completely opened to His plan and pray for a clear mind from your desires in order to receive the Lord’s direction for you.
Breaking these soulish prayers and curses will enable you to hear and receive with clarity. You also have to come to the realization that you may also have prayed soulish prayers over others and for that you need to repent. Your repentance will release you to receive the Lord’s blessings and also break the curse that you may have put over other Christians.
Don’t be so quick to coming into agreement with others on prayers unless it is explicity outlined in the word of God as His will. The word of God says that it is not good for a man to be alone (Genesis 2:18) but it does not say that Polly Sue should marry John Brown. We can pray for others to be married but to tie them to one particular person would not be wise. This would be an example of praying soulish prayers because of our own desires. Pray the Lord’s will be done if you are uncertain.
Here is the prayer to break word curses you have spoken over yourself and others and also to break word curses spoken over you.
Heavenly Father, I repent of the word curses I have spoken over myself and over _____ (others, my child, my finances, my health, my mind, my spouse, my relationship to You). Please forgive me for speaking these word curses and destroy them in Jesus Name. Do not allow them to come to fruition and deactivate any demonic assignments which may have been released because of them. I pray by the power and conviction of your Holy Spirit that if ever I attempt to pray any prayers outside of Your will to the destruction of myself, my family and others that you bring this prayer to mind and cause my mouth not to utter these curses. I am standing on your Word that You would give me the Keys to the Kingdom, that whatsoever I would bind on earth would be bound in heaven and whatsoever I would loose on earth would be loosed in heaven. In the Name of Jesus Christ, I bind up all demonic and soulish prayers that have been prayed over me and my family and cast them into the lake of fire. I pray that all of those prayers shall come to naught. I pray you bring revelation to anyone praying these prayers that they would stop, repent and turn to you for guidance and direction. I freely forgive them and pray that You, Lord, will forgive them also. I loose Your perfect will and answered prayers into my life. I loose your revelations, plans and purpose to flow freely into my life unhindered this year. I pray that my mind is clear, my heart is open and ready to receive Your truth and that no weapons that are ever formed against me shall prosper. Now that these curses are broken, I am trusting in You Lord to release everything to me that was held up by soulish prayers and diabolical spirits, In Jesus Name, Amen.
