Prayer vs Satan

Discussion in 'Prayer Request' started by Chad, Dec 7, 2008.

  1. Prayer vs Satan

    And Satan trembles when he sees, the weakest saint upon his knees.

    William Cowper

    When a Christian shuns fellowship with other Christians, the devil smiles. When he stops studying the Bible, the devil laughs. When he stops praying, the devil shouts for joy.

    Corrie Ten Boom

    The one concern of the devil is to keep Christians from praying. He fears nothing from prayerless studies, prayerless work, and prayerless religion. He laughs at our toil, mocks at our wisdom, but trembles when we pray.

    Samuel Chadwick

    When the devil sees a man or woman who really believes in prayer, who knows how to pray, and who really does pray, and, above all, when he sees a whole church on its face before God in prayer, he trembles as much as he ever did, for he knows that his day in that church or community is at an end.

    R.A. Torrey

    But have we Holy Ghost power - power that restricts the devil's power, pulls down strongholds and obtains promises? Daring delinquents will be damned if they are not delivered from the devil's dominion. What has hell to fear other than a God-anointed, prayer-powered church?

    Leonard Ravenhill

    Satan cannot deny but that great wonders have been wrought by prayer. As the spirit of prayer goes up, so his kingdom goes down. Satan's strategems against prayer are three. First, if he can, he will keep thee from prayer. If that be not feasible, secondly, he will strive to interrupt thee in prayer. And, thirdly, if that plot takes not, he will labour to hinder the success of thy prayer."

    William Gurnall

    Prayer is the master strategy that God gives for the defeat and rout of Satan.

    Wesley L. Duewel

    The prayer of the feeblest saint who lives in the Spirit and keeps right with God is a terror to Satan. The very powers of darkness are paralyzed by prayer; no spiritualistic séance can succeed in the presence of a humble praying saint. No wonder Satan tries to keep our minds fussy in active work till we cannot think in prayer.

    Oswald Chambers

    The devil is not terribly frightened of our human efforts and credentials. But he knows his kingdom will be damaged when we begin to lift up our hearts to God.

    Jim Cymbala

    I learned as never before that persistent calling upon the Lord breaks through every stronghold of the devil, for nothing is impossible with God. For Christians in these troubled times, there is simply no other way.

    Depend upon it, if you are bent on prayer, the devil will not leave you alone. He will molest you, tantalize you, block you, and will surely find some hindrances, big or little or both. And we sometimes fail because we are ignorant of his devices…I do not think he minds our praying about things if we leave it at that. What he minds, and opposes steadily, is the prayer that prays on until it is prayed through, assured of the answer.

    Mary Booth

    Prayer is an acknowledgment that our need of God’s help is not partial but total… Yet many of our church prayer meetings have dwindled in size and influence. Ultimately, the explanation can be traced to spiritual warfare. If, as the hymn writer says, Satan trembles when he sees the weakest saint upon his knees,” then we may be sure that he and his minions will be working hard to discredit the value of united prayer. The Evil One has scored a great victory in getting sincere believers to waver in their conviction that prayer is necessary and powerful.

    The primary way to overcome Satan is on our knees.

    Derek Prime and Alistair Begg
    On Being a Pastor, Moody Press, 2004, p. 70.

    The enemy uses all his power to lead the Christian, and above all the minister, to neglect prayer. He knows that however admirable the sermon may be, however attractive the service, however faithful the pastoral visitation, none of these things can damage him or his kingdom if prayer is neglected.

    Romans 15:13 May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.

  4. Yes satan hate that if we pray to God the father. We must always listen if God speaks. Please pray that all people involved with satanism will return to Jesus Christ.
  5. I am new to this site, but love what I see so far.............I have been battleing with satin and his attacks for several months now and its a nice reminder that satin hates it when I pray and wants me to give up thinking they are not answered. Praise Jesus
  6. A true old saying is that "Prayer Changes Things" and things change when we pray.

    Thank you for sharing such a collection of wise words about prayer, and from such an illustrious crowd of godly folks.
