Have you ever been robbed, arrested, kidnapped, or threatened with being killed, with an option of paying a ransom? Have you been oppressed by a boss, relative, or someone who is more financially blessed than you? How did you feel and what steps did you take to solve the problem? It is most likely that some people will opt for relocation, report the case to the police for assistance, change their jobs, or fortify their houses to make them more secure. Nevertheless, the situation can be devastating, frightening, frustrating, and intimidating, especially when there is no immediate solution.

When the Israelites were faced with a threat from Goliath, the Philistine, they were overwhelmed with fear and anxiety until David delivered them by killing Goliath (1 Samuel 17:1ff). Similarly, Jerusalem appeared to be a doomed city, during the dark days of Assyria’s siege. They became frightened and lost hope but two things happened: a great plague struck the Assyrians and the Assyrian leader was murdered, thereby putting an end to their threat (2 Kings 19:35). The miraculous deliverance convinced some Jews that Jerusalem, God’s city, could not be destroyed, no matter how powerful the enemy nation.

When King Hezekiah received a letter of threat from Sennacherib, he took it to God in prayer. (2 Kings 19:14-21,35-37). He went to the temple and spread the letter of threat before the Lord. He worshipped the Lord and made his petition known to the Maker of the heavens and the earth. Today’s lesson centers on the efficacy of Hezekiah’s prayer, God’s deliverance of the people, and restoration. The following prayers will terminate the work of witches and wizards and other agents of darkness in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.

10 The Bible says, “Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft.” I stand against those who are carrying rituals and sacrifices because of me that they should not succeed in the name of Jesus Christ.

Prayers against witchcraft from Isaiah 8:19-22; 47: 8-14

8 Almighty God, the Bible says, “…listen you a lover of pleasure, lounging in your security and saying to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me. I will never be a widow or suffer the loss of children.” From today, none of my children will not die at the hands of witchcraft in the name of Jesus Christ.

9 The Bible says, “… on a single day, loss of children and widowhood. They will come upon you in full measure, despite your many sorceries and all your potent spells.” I say it as the child of authority that loss of children and properties will not happen to me and all that concerns me in the name of Jesus Christ.
