How To Pray For Those in Bondage

HOW TO PRAY FOR THOSE IN BONDAGE

Praying for others is important.  Praying for those in demonic oppression is even more important.  We can’t pray for God to deliver them, because God respects their free will and never forces anyone in any direction.  However often they are confused, blinded and buried in darkness so they can’t clearly see the issues in their true perspective.  We can and should pray that God will temporarily restrain any demons from exerting any influence on them so they have an open perspective of the choices they are making and their impact.  That way, too, they can have an opportunity to repent and turn from those sins while can lead to freedom from demonic activity in their lives.

If the person hasn’t confessed the opening themselves that still blocks their relationship with God, but by interceding for them we can slow down or stop (at least temporarily) the demonic impact so the person can be free from that influence and be better able to turn to God for themselves.  Now if they continue in the sin they keep opening the door.  All you can do is keep trying to close it by asking God for mercy in their lives so they can make a free-will decision to follow God or not.

So if you have a friend or loved one that seems to be in bondage to sin, intercede for them and ask God to have mercy by binding up what is working against them so they can have a time of openness to clearly see the issues and make their own free will choice.  This won’t bring them total, final freedom because that is up to them and God won’t force freedom on them if they don’t want it.  But it will give them an opportunity to clearly decide.  This is the best you can do for others in sin, but it is something you can do.  So ask god to show you whom He wants you to pray for in this way and then faithfully persevere until they repent or God allows you to stop.

Ephesians 6:18 – Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Philippians 4:6 – Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

Is there someone God want you to pray for in this way?  If so make sure you faithfully for any demons working against them to be bound and for them to clearly see the truth so they can make their own free will choice.  That doesn’t mean they will turn to God – some prefer their sin and don’t want to humble themselves.  But you will have done all you can for them.
