How Can We Effectively Pray Against Witchcraft Curses at Halloween?

The demonic realm is organized, committed and obedient. It forms as a military troop attempting to wreak havoc on Christians. The purpose is plain and simple—to send forth destruction, curse Christians, disrupt the manifestation of prophecy and make believers' lives miserable and filled with sickness, accidents, emotional bondage and every evil thing.

As Halloween approaches and demons celebrate their greatest time of evil destruction, they are spending time in preparation to make sure their plan goes forth. They are committed to their cause.

I have written a couple of other articles on the demonic spirits behind Halloween, which you can read here and here.

One argument I hear from Christians is that evil curses can't stand and they take flight. We loosely proclaim we are covered with the blood of Jesus. Therefore, their curses have no power.

I do believe the blood of Jesus is more powerful than anything else. I am not discrediting that. I believe when we are in prayer offensively and living an obedient life to the Lord we are covered according to Psalm 91. We live in a fallen world where the demonic roams.

If we think we can loosely claim that the blood of Christ covers all, does that mean every person is healed, set free, delivered and living in financial prosperity because the blood of Jesus covers their sickness, emotional ailments and poverty? We know that isn't reality.

How can we effectively pray against the power of darkness setting out to annihilate us in this season of darkness? We need to pray audibly, binding and restricting the powers of evil.

In my book Speak Out, I teach how Jesus and the Father spoke to things and how we have a right to bind and restrict. I teach the power of praying out loud. We can't fight a spiritual war in our head. Warfare must be fought audibly.

Prayer Points to Target the Powers of Darkness:

—Pray audibly. Speak out and declare out loud against evil forces, witchcraft and the demonic realm. (See my book Warfare Declarations for powerful spiritual warfare prayers to recite.)

—Pray to send forth conviction from the Holy Spirit to Christians who are celebrating Halloween.

—Proclaim and decree that witches, warlocks, New Agers, Satanists and occultists will be convicted, converted, set free from the powers of darkness and set on fire for God.

—Pray for Christians who are against Halloween to release intimidation and have boldness in their speech to stand up for their beliefs and share with others in order to make a difference.

—Bind and restrict demonic curses from going forth and activating in your region. Take dominion over your region by prayer walking your streets or driving around in your vehicle praying.

Warfare Declarations to Pray Audibly:

—I bind and restrict every evil force operating against my family, church, employment, region and ministry, in Jesus' name.

—Witchcraft operations over me, above me, beneath me, I silence your operations. I speak and decree that your curses and operations will not go forth.

—Fire of God, apprehend my enemies and the powers of darkness against me. I speak and decree that the fire of God burns up every demonic contract and blueprint ordered against my life, in Jesus' name.

—Spirit of the living God, send forth conviction so that people's hearts change. Allow them to feel your great love. Give them divine encounters with the living God, the greatest power of all.

—Every demonic entity assigned to my region, I speak and decree that Jesus gave me power and authority over all things (Luke 10:19). Therefore, I walk in dominion and in the power of God in this region. Therefore, I order your assignment against this region to be nullified, by the blood of the Lamb.

—I establish a hedge of protection around my health, finances, property and possessions, in Jesus' name. I speak and decree "no weapon formed against me will prosper" (Isa. 54:17).

—I command every evil force attempting to operate against me and invade my life to be still now of your commission. I speak and decree you will not penetrate my armor, blessings or walls of protection. I dwell in the secret place of the Most High. Therefore, no evil will befall me (Ps. 91).

—I come against any and all spirits of death, destruction and annihilation of my prophetic destiny. I decree and declare; I will live and not die and declare the works of the Lord (Ps. 118:17).

Speak out and pray audibly to use these prophetically targeted prayers to annihilate and destroy the powers of darkness coming against you, your family and region. Open your mouth and pray! Your words are prophetically assigned to hit their target with power and authority when you believe and pray!
