How To Pray When Under Attack – Dr. Daniel Olukoya

Dr. Daniel K. Olukoya, MFM General Overseer

Christians are the prime targets of the devil, the common enemy of mankind. Now more than ever, he unleashes his rage and destruction against people because he knows that his time is short. Christians especially experience strange attacks, both physical and spiritual, day and night.

In such conditions, we are not expected to be helpless or defenceless, rather, we are supposed to pray and subdue the enemies who have come to attack us, and quench them as the fire of thorns.

Isaiah 59:19: “So shall they fear the name of the Lord from the West and His glory from the rising of the sun. when the enemy shall come in like a flood, the spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him.”

Exodus 14:7-14: “And he took six hundred chosen chariots and all the chariots of Egypt and captains over everyone of them and the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, King of Egypt and he pursued after the children of Israel:; and the children of Israel went out with an high hand. But the Egyptians pursued after them all the horses and chariots of Pharaoh and his horsemen and his army and overtook them encamping by the sea beside Pihahiroth before Baalzephon. And when Pharaoh drew nigh, the children of Israel lifted up their eyes and behold the Egyptians marched after them and they were sore afraid and the children of Israel cried out unto the Lord. And they said unto Moses: Because there were no graves in Egypt hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? Wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us to carry us forth out of Egypt. Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying: “Let us alone that we may serve the Egyptians|?” “For it had been better for us to serve the Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.” And Moses said unto the people: “Fear ye not, stand still and see the salvation of the Lord which he will shew to you to day: for the Egyptians whom ye have seen today, ye shall see them again no more for ever. The Lord shall fight for you and ye shall hold your peace.”

As long as a person is alive, he will always face attacks, especially if the person is a Christian. You may wonder why you should be under attack.

You must understand the mysteries of life; once you are a child of destiny, you come under attacks. You don’t have to offend anybody nor go against any law.

Joseph came under attacks first, because of his dreams and later in Egypt, because he refused to commit an offence against his master and sin against God.

When a person comes under attacks, he would have decisions to take and most times, people take wrong decisions which compound their problems.

In the text above, Israel was under attack. Although born in the cradle of miracles, they found themselves in the midst of problems. They marched forward but got to a standstill and did not know their door of escape.
They could not go further; the pillar that was leading them had led them to a seeming destruction: in front was the Red Sea and behind was the host of Egypt as well as Pharaoh himself.

On the right and the left were insurmountable rocks. Behind them, was the raging foe pursuing, ready to attack and devour them; surely this was a time when hope would naturally die.

If you are a man or woman of destiny you would have identified with the above description. There would have been a time when you were attacked from all sides or you may be going through that attack.

Perhaps, for many years, the devil has been using you to fabricate bricks for his building and you have found a way of escape by giving your life to the Lord Jesus Christ. All of a sudden fresh problems came up against you at once.

In Isaiah 59:19, the Scripture says, “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him. “

Why is it that you find yourself under attack because you are praying?

What do you do when these attacks come against you? Pray kinds of prayers to be prayed when under attacks.

PRAYERS TO BE PRAYED WHEN UNDER ATTACK
1. Praise – Exalt the Lord: When Paul and Silas were in the prison, they praised the Lord with all their hearts and the earthquake of deliverance descended upon the whole prison and the chains that bound them broke.

2. Bind every spirit of fear: That is bind the powers that will make you panic Psalm 46:10 reads,”Be still and know that I am God I will be exalted among the heathen I will be exalted in the earth.”

If you don’t bind the spirit of fear and panic, you will make more destructive mistakes. You will do terrible things that will worsen the situation. Then, the weapon of surprise by the enemy will catch up with you.

3. Ask God for wisdom concerning the steps to take and the decisions to make: Ask Him what he want you to learn in the situation. When there is a crisis- there is concentrated information, which you have to analyze with wisdom. Pray for divine wisdom in any situation for find yourself.

4. Pray that the power of god should move in the situation.

5. Pray warfare prayers: The Bible says, ”Submit yourselves therefore to God Resist the devil and he will flee from you.” When you are a real fighter, you intimidate the enemy. Use your weapons o warfare; the word of God, the fire of God, Angels of God, the Blood of Jesus; to fight back and launch a counter attack against the enemy that wants to deal with you.

6. Pray that it is the enemy that must surrender and not you.

Be determined to fight through and the Lord will raise a standard against him.

The text in Isaiah 59:19 is actually saying that when the enemy comes against you, the spirit of God will come like a flood and raise up a standard against the enemy. Many people interpret it to mean the enemy rising up like a flood.

A BASIC CONDITON: YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN

The prayers you are going to pray would wage war against the enemy but I want you to surrender your life to the Lord Jesus Christ if you have not done so.

See yourself as a sinner, repent of your sins and ask Him to forgive you. Name those sins one after the other and forsake them. Ask the Lord to cleanse you with His blood which was shed on the cross at Calvary for your sins. Enthrone Him over your life and turn away from the world. Decide to follow Him for ever with all your heart. Say good-bye to the devil and the world.

Now that you have taken this important decision, the Lord will uphold you with his hand of righteousness and you will be able to stand against the wiles of the devil, in the name of Jesus.

You have an opportunity today to make your Pharaoh sink in the Red Sea and to disgrace all your oppressors.
The prayers you are going to pray will cause deliverance in the head and the internal organs. They will repair every rotten part of your life and make infirmities to jump out.

Pray fervently and with all your heart. Don’t be alarmed by what you fee afterwards. Concentrate and allow God to work .

In Obadiah 1:17, the Bible says: “Upon mount Zion, there shall be deliverance and there shall be holiness and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.”

  1. Thank so so much for the prayers. I was feeling so down, when I came across your web site. I’m, indeed, uplifted by the power of prayer. I fight not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers in high places. My ex-husband was in the lodge and I’ve been fighting ever since. I do need a breakthrough.
    Once again, thank you.

    Hello Pastor, may the Lord continue to bless you and inspire you to teach and preach the word. Am truly blessed by your teachings and prayer points. My prayer life has truly changed since i stumbled upon mountain of fire website. My prayer requests are for the Lord of Lords and King of Glory to change me and transform into what HE created me to be. I pray for deliverance from financial debt. I pray for a miracilous breakthru in family property struggle. I pray for job protection. I ask for the blood of Jesus Christ to circle my home and family. Praise the Lord for HE has brought me from far. HE has lifted me up. May the Lord fight for me now and forever more. Amen.

  4. OLUFEMI

    Prayer on my future partner who is yet to say yes to my plea since year 2005.

    I approach a lady whom God had bid me to marry after a lot of fasting & prayer. All effort to convince her proved abortive since Aug. 3, 2005. She (OLAYEMI) emanated as the only devouted christian in her muslim family & her parent don’t hinder her from marrying christian. I’m a pastor “to be” & i don’t want to shun God’s directives because there is a ramification behind every foolish step that one take in life. she is the bone of my bone & the flesh of my flesh. I’m 34 years old & the time is going, no response from her. Please pray for me that she (OLAYEMI) Should surrender herself to i OLUFEMI as the will of God for her without any further delay. THANK YOU SIR.

    My Brother, if you are sure that it was directed by God, then there is nothing to fear. God’s time is not your time. Once fear and time watching sets in, then question, yourself and motives and flesh. How long did Abraham wait for the promised child. Be anxious for nothing, but everything by prayer and supplication make your request know to God. Leave the lady alone. If it is of God, she will come to you. Spend time in the service of the Lord.

  7. Pastor pray for my journey mercy as I will be going home for this week and for God to provide for and favour me in all direction and put my enemies to shame for God Almighty to take the glory in Jesus name. Keep on Pastor, God bless you.

  8. TOX

    Whoever is blessed with the annointing of prayer out there, please pray for my family. Many atimes I have dreamed that we are in a roofless house and my children exposed to drafts and rain. At present, my husband is severely depressed and has been so for a few months now. I have prayed and fasted and now l now lack the will or energy to continue.

    Where is God when you need him? I am really really tired and I keep having this dream that my husband (and I reject this in jesus name) went mad. Help me please.

  9. Sis Agnes

    Dear Tox,

    I got mad when I read your prayer request. The devil is wickedly wicked and badly bad. This is no game. It is death to the finish and not for you nor your family, but for the wicked powers. Continue in prayer and fasting, hold fast and continue to hold. Pray like a mad prophet. Never give up, the more they attack, the more you pray. God has never lose a battle yet.

    Anointing to pray and stand fast and get results, fall on this person in Jesus Name.

    Anointing of Elijah fall on this person in Jesus Name.

    Anointing to live a sin free life, fall on this person in Jesus Name

    Anointing to never give up, regardless on the situation fall on this person in Jesus Name.
    It is done according to your faith in Jesus name

  10. bro timothy

    my sister(TOX) double release fire in jesus name, going mad is a spirit confusion,but Jesus was manifested was to destroy the works of the devil,and God is not a God of confusion but of peace,and peace shall it be in Jesus peerless name..(lev 26v6,9)may the lord grant you peace in the land,that you will lie down and no one will make you afraid,may he remove savage beasts from the land,and that sword will not pass through your land,you will persue your enemies and they will fall by the sword before you..v9may he look on you with favor and make you fruitful and increase your number and keep his convenant with you in Jesus name..amen..

  25. underattack

    Could use much prayer, PLEASE. My husband is working for an organization (ironically, a Christian one) in which everyone is jockying for position and worried about their own backsides. They brought him on because he has more expertise than anyone in his field, but refuse to listen to him or his expert suggestions. Now they’re working to drain him of info so they can let him go! (We aren’t supposed to know that.) It’s a small niche market, so if he looks elsewhere he will immediately lose this job – which would be terrible for us financially.

    In the meantime, we have so many other attacks coming at us in every area, it seems, that it’s impossible to detail. Including having to move, switch our kids’ school, marital strife… It’s rampant and unyielding. Please pray with us against the attack – we do know we are under one – and for favor for my husband, who has worked to keep his good name and his integrity in tact, despite the lack of ethics and honesty on the part of his co-workers.

    Thanks so much.

  26. It’s actually a nice and useful piece of information.
    I am happy that you just shared this helpful information with us.
    Please stay us up to date like this. Thank you for sharing.
