Prayers against satanic attacks

It’s true. You have an adversary who wants to attack your desires, your thoughts, even how you see and treat your body. So you and I need to be on guard against Satan’s schemes.  

According to 1 Peter 5:8, “Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (NASB). But God’s Word also gives us a strategy against those attacks by telling us to “Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes…” (Ephesians 6:11-18). I find it interesting that every piece of “armor” described in that passage refers to the character of Christ. In other words, put on Christ-likeness – abide in Christ – and you will fend off the attacks of the enemy. 

We abide in Christ through surrender and constant communion with Him. As you suit up with the armor of God, here are five prayers to pray against Satan’s attacks on your heart, mind, emotions, mouth, and body. 

1. A Prayer to Guard Your Heart  

Lord God, Captain of my heart, Satan knows if I follow Your Greatest Commandment – to love You with all my heart, soul, and mind (Matthew 22:37) – he is powerless over me. Guard my heart, Lord Jesus, so that it beats for You alone. Don’t let me grow complacent toward You or be lured to love anyone or anything more than You. Remove the idols from my heart so that You alone command my allegiance and utmost affections Help me to love and forgive others as You have forgiven me so the enemy can get no foothold through hate or bitterness on my part. Cultivate in my heart Your love that “bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things” (>1 Corinthians 13:7, NASB). Finally, Lord, set my heart on things above, not on earthly things. Help me to remember that You died for me and my life is now hidden which Christ in God (>Colossians 3:1-2). Increase my longing for heaven so this world holds no power over me.   

2. A Prayer to Defend Your Mind  

Almighty God, cover my mind with the helmet of Your salvation, reminding me constantly that I am Your child and the enemy can’t mess with me. Fix my thoughts, Lord Jesus, on what is true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, and admirable. Help me to think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise so Your peace will guard my mind (Philippians 4:8-9). Don’t let me copy the behavior and customs of this world, but transform me into a new person by changing the way I think. Then I will learn to recognize Your will for me which is good and pleasing and perfect (Romans 12:2, NLT).  Saturate my mind with Your truth so I am convinced that the answers are found in Your Word, not out in the world. 

3. A Prayer to Calm Your Emotions

Lord, keep the enemy at bay by calming my emotions with the peace of Your presence. Help me to follow Your command and not worry about anything, but pray about everything, with a thankful heart offering up prayers and requests to you so that You can give me that peace that no one can completely understand – a peace that will control the way I think and feel (Phil. 4:6-7, CEV). Remind me, daily, that You are the Only One who can meet my emotional needs so I don’t look to any person for my identity, validation, or for my love tank to be filled. Thank You that You are the God of peace, the God of order, the God who heals my wounds and helps me sort through and make sense of life. You are not the God of chaos or confusion. Fill me with Your Spirit so I may express to others only love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control (Galatians 5:22-23). 

4. A Prayer to Cover Your Mouth 

Lord, Jesus, guard my mouth so that my words will be few. Help me to be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger (James 1:19). Don’t let me speak reckless words that can pierce like swords. Instead, give me a tongue that brings healing (Proverbs 12:18). Don’t let me give in to gossip or speak careless critical words that will wound others. Keep the enemy far from me so that no unwholesome talk comes out of my mouth but only what is helpful for building others up, according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. Don’t let me grieve the Holy Spirit through my words (Ephesians 4:29-30). 

5. A Prayer to Protect Your Body

Lord, I give my body to You. Let it be a living and holy sacrifice, the kind You will find acceptable (Romans 12:1, NLT). I  know from Your Word that Satan can not sift me like wheat or even lay a hand on me without Your permission. So place Your hedge around me so that my body – Your temple – can be preserved, pure, holy, and healthy for You (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Block Satan’s attempts to make me doubt that I am “fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14) and don’t let me listen to his taunts to harm my body through neglect, contempt, addiction or abuse. I am Yours, Lord Jesus, and I want to glorify You in my body so keep me from Satan’s attempts and the temptations in this world and in my flesh to make me impure, to dress immodestly, to make my body a showcase or advertisement for evil or self glorification. 

As you pray that God will develop the fruits of His Holy Spirit in every area of your life, you will be invincible through prayer to the one who seeks to tear you down and make you less like Christ.

Here are five prayers you can use when you feel like Satan or his demons are attacking you.

Prayer for Guilt Attacks

Oh Father,

I know that You forgive all of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1st John 1:9), but sometimes I believe the enemy or one of his demons can send waves of guilt at me. Help me to trust You in the midst of this guilt that is trying to rob my joy. I know that I have trusted in Christ and now there is no more condemnation (Rom 8:1), but the enemy sometimes whispers in my ear that I can’t really be a Christian because of the sin that I still do. Help me to fortify my faith by Your Word and give me that hunger and thirst to know You my Lord, and to expect that all who live for You will be under attack. I trust You to bring me home, so help my troubled conscious, as I ask for Your forgiveness, and restore the joy in my salvation, so that I might tell others about your goodness and that you give grace to the humble (James 4:6),and so it is in the strong name of Jesus I pray, Amen.

Prayer for Your Armor

Righteous God,

I need the full armor of God to protect myself from the fiery darts of the enemy, because I am no match for the enemy without You and Your presence with me. Help me to keep the Word of God close to my heart so that I can know that You promise to never forsake me and never leave me, and You are faithful to Your own word, so help me to trust in You through Your word when I am feeling attacked. Father God, when these attacks come, send Your Spirit to remind me to focus on Jesus and that He has already had victory over the enemy and crushed all opposition to Your Kingdom, so let me trust in You, and fix my gaze upon Jesus, Who alone has brought the victory, so now I have no need to fear, and in the mighty name of Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.

Prayer for Relationships

Holy, Holy, Holy, are you oh Father,

I come humbly before You and pray that You would glorify Yourself, even at my expense, and even when I am experiencing trouble in my personal relationships. Sometimes it feels like the enemy works through my employer or other people that are close to me, and that they may be attacking me because of them. Most of my family and co-workers know that I have trusted in You Christ, and this sometimes makes me a target at work and at family events. Help me to stay strong, even when I am treated unfairly, or when someone gossips about me and slanders my name. Please help me to hold my own tongue and be as Jesus was when faced with persecution and hostility. He never retaliated, so help me to not make matters worse when I am angered by some injustice done against me, like when someone’s told a lie about me. Help me to see that sometimes the enemy will use others to create difficulties in my relationships, so I pray that Your hand uphold me, even while everything seems to be in shambles, and in Jesus Christ’s name I pray, Amen.

Prayer for Discernment

Father God,

Sometimes I feel attacked in my inner conscience and I’m not always sure if it’s from You or if it’s from the enemy. Help me to know when it’s Your Spirit Lord, so that I can repent of my sin and confess it to you. When I feel condemned, help me to know that I’m no longer standing in condemnation. When I feel You’re angry at me, help me to see that I am trusting my feelings over what You reveal in Your Word. I know You are only angry at the sinner every day, but now, I no longer have Your wrath upon me because I have placed my trust in Jesus (John 3:36). What an amazing love You have for me, Lord, evidenced by Jesus’ supreme sacrifice, which You also had to suffer through. Help me to know whether You are convicting me of something and when You are prompting me to do something, or when it’s the enemy laying all of the worldly guilt upon me, which is not of God. Oh Father, I cannot always know without Your Spirit whether it is You speaking to me or it is the enemy, so give me discernment to know when it is You and when it is the enemy, and in the name above all names, the Lord, Jesus Christ I pray, Amen.

Fighting the Invisible

Righteous Father,

I know that we are all fighting an invisible enemy that, alone, we are absolutely no match for. These wicked spirits are in high places and are sometimes part of the rulers in our land. Great God, help them to do what You would have them do so that we might have a peaceable life, in order that others would hear the gospel. There is coming a time, Lord, when we might not have the chance to openly speak about Jesus Christ in public. I pray that those now living in darkness in our community, who are blinded by the god of this world (2nd Cor 4:3-4), would have their eyes opened to receive the glorious gospel so that they might be saved. Let us fight on our knees Father, having in place the armor of Your righteousness that protects us from the wicked enemies. This dark, invisible enemy and his demons hate those who are Yours Lord, so help us to prepare ahead of time to ward off the weapons of the enemy, and to stay in Your Word to see that the enemy will eventually be vanquished (Rev 20:11-15). I pray this for Your Son’s glory in whose precious name I pray, Amen.

Conclusion

If you tell me that you’re under attack, I’ll say, “Good.  You must be doing something for Jesus.”  I remember having a demonic attack in the middle of the night. It was scary, believe me. I immediately started praying Jesus’ name out loud and praising Him, and it finally went away. That was a first for me, and I have never forgotten it, but whether it was Satan himself or not, I don’t know. I doubt it because Satan goes after the big fish in the big ponds, not little fish in little ponds. Yes, it is possible, but since Satan is not omnipresent, meaning he can’t be present at two or more places at the same time. I doubt two people can have Satan attacking them at the same time on opposite ends of the earth. Only God is omnipresent (present everywhere). Satan is a created being and does not have this attribute and is limited by God by what he or his demons can do. Your best defense against spiritual attacks is to stay in the Word, memorize the Word, stay in fellowship with other Christians who will hold you accountable, and pray, pray, pray, like nobody’s business.

POWER AGAINST SATANIC COUNTER ATTACK

Isa. 59:19

CONFESSIONS

The Lord shall cause my enemies that rise up against me to be smitten before my face: they shall come out against me in one way, and flee before me seven ways.

For the Lord my God is He that goeth with me, to fight for me against my enemies to save me. They that hate me shall be clothed with shame; and the swelling place of the wicked shall come to naught.

For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion: in the secret of His tabernacle shall He hide me; He shall set me up upon a rock. And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in His tabernacle sacrifices of joy.

Through God I shall do valiantly: for it is He that shall tread down my enemies.

For the rod of the wicked shall not rest upon the lot of the righteous; lest the plenteous put forth their hands unto iniquity.

I am not afraid of sudden fear, neither of desolation of the wicked when it cometh, for the Lord shall be my confidence and shall stop my foot from being taken. Behold all that are incensed against me shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing: and they that strive with me shall perish. I shall seek them, and shall not find, even them that contend with me, they that war against me shall be as nothing, and as a thing of naught.

Behold they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather against me shall fall for my sake. But I will deliver thee in that day, saith the Lord: and thou shall not be given into the hand of men of whom thou art afraid. For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shall not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey for thee; because thou has thy trust in me, saith the Lord.

And shall God not avenge his own elect which cry day and night unto him though he bear long with them?

The angel of the Lord encampeth round about them that fear Him and delivereth them.
For the Lord loveth judgment, and forsaketh not His saints; they are preserved forever, but the seeds of the wicked shall be cut off.

But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.

For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and His ears are open unto his prayers.

The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations and to reserve the unjust unto the day judgment to be punished.
