Wanda Alger, a writer for Intercessors For America (IFA), shares a word of wisdom and practical information regarding how to pray regarding witchcraft curses. She also answers questions like whether intercessors should respond to spells and those who publish them and provides a biblical response.
The Bible clearly tells us to “…bless those who curse you” (Luke 6:28) and “…bless those who persecute you” (Romans 12:14). James warns believers of the power of the tongue with which we “…curse people who are made in the likeness of God” (James 3:11). We always need to keep the individuals separate from their words and actions when dealing with spiritual attack. These self-styled witches and warlocks who cast their spells are LOST. They are deceived and rebelling against a loving Father they do not know and cannot comprehend (2 Cor. 4:4). Regardless of their demonic intentions, we should always pray for them as individuals with the hope that they still might come to God through repentance and faith in Jesus Christ.
We must also remember that our praises to God are greater than any evil curse. Our praises shift the atmosphere and confuse the enemy, just like they did with Jehoshaphat’s army. Even when the people of God seemed outnumbered, it was their focus on the Most High God and the praises from their lips that brought them victory. Though we can renounce dark spells and rebuke the enemy, our declaration of the King’s dominion over our land will displace any demonic scheme and nullify any curse.
After consulting the people, Jehoshaphat appointed men to sing to the Lord and to praise him for the splendor of his holiness as they went out at the head of the army, saying: “Give thanks to the Lord, for his love endures forever.” As they began to sing and praise, the Lord set ambushes against the men of Ammon and Moab and Mount Seir who were invading Judah, and they were defeated. The Ammonites and Moabites rose up against the men from Mount Seir to destroy and annihilate them. After they finished slaughtering the men from Seir, they helped to destroy one another. (2 Chronicles 20:21-23)
