“Behold I give you POWER to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over ALL the power of the enemy and nothing shall hurt you.” Luke 10:19
Adultery is demonic. Divorce is demonic. (Except in specific biblical exceptions)
These are tools that Satan uses to destroy the family. We see that we have been given all power over the enemy – including divorce and adultery. Yet very few believers understand their power and know how to use it.
Many years ago I was a teacher in a children’s sunday school. One morning a father dropped off his young daughter. As I was chatting with him I asked if he was a single dad. He said “No, my wife is in the church at this very moment sitting with another man. They are having an affair.”
I was shocked. I said “Well we are going to pull that demonic spirit of adultery down right now! We are not going to stand for this!”
I prayed loudly and with authority “Satan, I command that you get your hands off of this marriage. I command this lying spirit of adultery to leave this mans wife right now in Jesus name. I break the satanic plot of divorce that is attacking this man and his wife. Your powers were broken at the cross in Jesus name.”
I then told the man to keep standing against this demonic attack of adultery and to begin thanking the Lord for restoring his marriage. The next week I was back at my children’s class. When this same man came to drop off his daughter he had a big smile on his face. I asked him what happened. He said that his wife had left the other man and that God had restored their marriage. Even I was amazed at how quickly the marriage was healed. This man was a believer – he just didn’t realize the power and authority that he had in Christ.
Is your husband or wife committing adultery? Has your spouse divorced you? Do you feel that your marriage is lost forever? Do you feel hopeless? Don’t allow Satan to rob you of what is rightfully yours. Use your authority in Christ to reclaim your marriage. Keep praying until you see results. You may have to pray for 6 months, a year or 2 years – I don’t know how long it will take, it’s different for each case. But what I do know is this – if you will fast, pray and take authority, all hell cannot prevail against your marriage.
Now you may ask me – what about a person’s free will? Yes, each person has a free will that God will not supersede. But often the person’s mind has been blinded, distorted and confused by a demonic stronghold that has twisted their thinking. By you pulling all that demonic activity down you are now freeing the person to think clearly and make wise choices. They are no longer bound up with confusion.
Here is what I suggest: Purpose in your heart that you will fast on a regular basis until your marriage is restored. See all my posts on Fasting and Prayer
Next, you are going to memorize the above scripture verse – Luke 10:19. I want you to say it out loud all day long. Keep saying it. Don’t stop until you see complete victory. Finally, you are going to pray an authoritative prayer and command the demonic strongholds to leave your marriage and your spouse. Below is a sample prayer. Then write me and tell me about your victory. I am praying and standing with you in faith.
“Today in Jesus name I reclaim my marriage for Christ. No man, no woman, no demon and no stronghold will separate what God has brought together. Satan, I now command you in the name of Jesus to get your hands off of my marriage. Foul spirit of adultery I command that you leave _________’s mind. Your powers were broken two thousand years ago at the cross. You have no right to touch or torment __________’s mind. I now cover my marriage, our home, our family and all that we have under the blood of Jesus Christ. I claim complete restoration for my home, my family and my marriage. I speak healing between me and my spouse and Lord I ask that you would bring your healing touch upon our relationship. I pray all of this in Jesus name.” amen
PRINT OUT THIS PRAYER. When you pray this prayer it must be done out loud with great authority. Get mad at Satan. Satan knows who truly believes and who doesn’t.
Prayers don’t bother Satan – it is only when we speak them in power and authority that causes his powers to be shaken and broken.
