Does it seem like you are getting attacked from every area of your life? It’s been one thing after another, work problems, family misunderstandings, car breakdowns, or a microwave exploding. Spiritual warfare prayer points will help prepare you for the invisible spiritual battle that rages all around us.
Remember Satan comes to kill, steal, and destroy. Sometimes he’s aggressive, prowling around like a roaring lion seeking someone to devour. Or Satan is sneaky, disguising himself as an angel of light, making him even harder to detect. But as you pray you will receive discernment.
What is Spiritual Warfare?
Spiritual warfare is the ongoing conflict between Satan/demons against believers. Christians are in an invisible war divided on into four spiritual warfare prayer points.
1) Believer engaged in “direct” contact with the devil and the demons.
2) Believers engaged in “indirect” contact against other people, saved or unsaved, that the enemy is working through. Sometimes at a personal level or through family, friends, or coworkers. Or collateral damage from the devil schemes on a local, national, or worldly stage.
3) Spiritual warfare angels verses demons, where we don’t see what’s going on unless God shows us. Satan hates us because God loves us. Since Satan can’t touch God, he hurts us to get back at our Lord. You can pray for protection from evil.
“For we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against persons without bodies—the evil rulers of the unseen world, those mighty satanic beings and great evil princes of darkness who rule this world; and against huge numbers of wicked spirits in the spirit world.” Eph. 6:12
Spiritual Warfare Prayer Points
Below are proven spiritual warfare prayer points from Kurt Green, a seasoned professional, in the areas of healing and deliverance. I’ve schedule sessions with Kurt Green, when I need expertise in stopping the spiritual warfare. Kurt Green has provided wisdom and spiritual breakthroughs in my life.
Repentance is Key/ Defensive Weapon
Kurt Green found spiritual warfare prayers are rooted in a foundation of repentance. Daily, he asks the Lord to reveal if any of his thoughts or actions are rooted in lies. Then Mr. Green deals with any underlying personal issues, under the Holy Spirit’s direction. The more his actions and thoughts become more whole and more Christlike, hence the enemy doesn’t have a hold over him.
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. Psalm 139, 23-24.
This process of repentance and healing removes the enemy’s right to harass a person’s soul. The more whole a person becomes it removes the enemy’s primary ability to attack, resulting in fewer occurrences, This is biblical, since on the way to the cross, Jesus stated on His way to the cross, that the devil has nothing no power/no claim over Him. (John 14:30) Jesus never sinned but became our sin offering since we could be made right with Christ. (John 14:30, 2 Cor. 5:21)
Repent For Others
Another key Kingdom strategy is to first pray for yourself, and then pray for those closest to you.
Warfare is not just meant to help us, it helps others breaks the power of the enemy over their lives and brings freedom. We can repent on behalf of other people, so just as you would repent for yourself. As you pray for your loved ones, you will experience a new level of freedom.
After you’ve prayed for yourself and your loved ones, expand your prayer circle to towns and cities and nations. Isn’t amazing you can hit all your spiritual warfare prayer points without leaving your home!
This pray method is based on Acts 1:8, “you will be my witnesses, in Jerusalem, your Judea and Samaria and the ends of the earth.”
Obedience Key Offensive Weapon
The primary spiritual warfare prayer is an offensive posture is rooted in obedience. The more obedient a person is to Holy Spirit’s leading in their life, the more authority a person receives. This isn’t just about following and doing what the Bible teaches, it includes following Holy Spirit leadings specific to your own life. The more you follow the Holy Spirit and His leading, the more authority you will carry.
“Gaining in authority through obedience is one key to winning battles against the enemy.” Kurt Green
Seven Steps Of Prayer Methods for Spiritual Warfare
The following are spiritual warfare prayer points that will help you in the heat of the battle.
1) The Blood of Jesus
Apply the Blood of Jesus to everyone and everything. “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” Rev. 12:11
2) The Cross
Apply the finished work of the cross to break off the enemy’s attack. “Jesus canceled the record of the charges against us and took it away by nailing it to the cross. And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross”. Col 2:13-14
This is a spiritual act that reminds the enemy of Jesus victory at the cross. “Do this is remembrance of me.” Luke 22:19
4) Say Scripture
“It is written,” in the desert the devil left after Jesus by quoting scripture.
5) Pray Out loud
The spoken word is a spiritual battle wields power. God spoke to our world into existence. Your words have power. Jesus spoke for everyone to hear “Get behind me, Satan.”
6) Speaking in Tongues
The enemy can’t understand this heavenly language, giving you an advantage. It’s like you are speaking in a secret code.
7) The Voice of God
Hearing God’s voice is probably the most important too in being victorious in a spiritual battle. For example, God led me to pray over this creepy home where bad things had occurred. While I was praying, God showed me what to pray and do in the moment . After praying, instantly a village worker changed into the burned-out streetlight in front of that house. Which I took as a sign that my prayers helped. Be alert when your praying, because God will give you instructions.
Learn to hear and follow His voice daily. Remember, it takes time and practice to hear the voice of God.
Armor of God
In addition, the Bible lists seven pieces of armor , the belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness, gospel of peace shoes, shield of faith, helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, the word of God.(Eph. 6:14-17).
How can I be spiritually strong in prayer?
Many feel that aren’t good enough to engage in this spiritual battle, but that’s a lie from the pit. Remember what Jesus told His disciples, ” Behold, I have given you authority to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall hurt you.”(Luke 10:19) Therefore God is calling you to participate in this spiritual war , below are a 15 ways to be stay spiritually strong in prayer.

How do you start a warfare prayer?
1) Find a comfortable place where you can be alone. If no one is home, you might prefer to walk around your home to pray.
2) Tell God what is going on, share your feelings and emotions with Him, whether they’re good or bad. Be honest. God can handle it.
3) Ask God for help from the situation. You can ask if you’re believing a lie. And ask Him what the truth is.
4) Wait for an answer. Don’t worry if you receive nothing immediately, maybe you have to wait. Just pray in the Spirit and wait for God.
5) Ask specifically for what spiritual warfare prayer points you need to pray through this.
6) Then open your mouth and pray and listen if God is showing you something while you’re praying. Keep Praying over the situation even if things seem worse. Sometimes that shows your prayers are working in the spiritual realm, and the enemy is causing problems.
7) After you ‘re done focusing on you move onto pray for your loved ones, then move on to the nations.
8) Or start by praying for the lost. Ask God to use you as a vessel for reaching others with His love and the truth of salvation.

God has chosen prayer as the catalyst to work in our lives. The Bible calls us to pray without ceasing (1Thessalonians 5). God has chosen prayer as the catalyst to work in our lives and to fight the devil. It could be scary, but God has given us weapons to fight the unseen world. I prefer using spiritual warfare prayer points because it a plan so I know what to pray and through prayer it helps to find where the enemy is attacking and how to deal with the attack. Prayer points have helped me in my Christian walk, so it may also help you too.
