Prayer Trigger, Prayer Target

2 Corinthians 10:4 For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds…

Ephesians 6:12 For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual wickedness in the heavenlies.

Nearly everything in Scripture can be used as a weapon against the adversary and his minions. With the Spirit’s guidance and our surrender, concepts (ideas), principles (our behavioral instructions from the Lord), and prayers can be derived from the Bible to help us overcome the flesh and the enemy.

Respecting His Order (creation) and Will (directions) are paramount; therefore, obedience and repentance are the first steps on the base level of spiritual warfare. Arthur Burk did a video of a concept which became popular during the tail end of the Charismatic Revival:

Here are the verses explaining the concept:

Matthew 5
44But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, 45that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

Luke 6
27But to those of you who will listen, I say: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.

Romans 12:14 Bless those who persecute you. Bless and do not curse.

1 Peter 3:9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

Proverbs 25 (Romans 12:20)
21If your enemy is hungry, give him food to eat,
and if he is thirsty, give him water to drink.
22For in so doing, you will heap burning coals on his head,
and the LORD will reward you.

Luke 18
2In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor respected men. 3And there was a widow in that town who kept appealing to him, “Give me justice against my adversary.”

4For a while he refused, but later he said to himself, “Though I neither fear God nor respect men, 5yet because this widow keeps pestering me, I will give her justice. Then she will stop wearing me out with her perpetual requests.”

6And the Lord said, “Listen to the words of the unjust judge. 7Will not God bring about justice for His elect who cry out to Him day and night? Will He continue to defer their help? 8I tell you; He will promptly carry out justice on their behalf. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?”

2 Kings 13
14When Elisha had fallen sick with the illness from which he would die, Jehoash king of Israel came down to him and wept over him, saying, “My father, my father, the chariots and horsemen of Israel!”

15Elisha told him, “Take a bow and some arrows.”

So Jehoash took a bow and some arrows.

16Then Elisha said to the king of Israel, “Put your hand on the bow.”

So the king put his hand on the bow, and Elisha put his hands on the king’s hands.

17“Open the east window,” said Elisha.

So he opened it and Elisha said, “Shoot!” So he shot.

And Elisha declared:
“This is the LORD’s arrow of victory,
the arrow of victory over Aram,
for you shall strike the Arameans in Aphek
until you have put an end to them.”

18Then Elisha said, “Take the arrows!”

So he took them, and Elisha said to the king of Israel, “Strike the ground!”

So he struck the ground three times and stopped.

19But the man of God was angry with him and said, “You should have struck the ground five or six times. Then you would have struck down Aram until you had put an end to it. But now you will strike down Aram only three times.”

1. Give the Lord praise and honor.
2. Repent.
3. Bless as many people as you can, as often as you can, especially those who have wronged you or are living in sin.
4. Give Him honor and amen.
5. Do this as often as you can. You can slow down once the attacks stop.

The results:
1. The attacks may increase a bit, then level off and decrease.
2. You are preparing each person to receive God’s Word.
3. You are giving back what He gives to you: life, breath, blessings, the honor to exist, etc.
4. A great way to invigorate your prayer life. Maybe that was what Yah wanted in the first place.
