Prayer To Destroy The Spirit Of Backwardness

Backwardness is a demonic spirit that has placed people in their formal place, school and village in their dreams. The spirit of backwardness cannot allow people to progress. It restricts the children of God from so many things in life. For example, dreaming about the village, formal house, or former school is a sign of backwardness, retrogression and stagnation. A man is expecting a contract job from a person, but by the time he finishes dreaming about former areas where he has lived before, that contract will not come to pass.

But they heardkened not, nor inclined their ear, but walked in the counsels and in the imagination of their evil heart, and went backward and not forward. Jeremiah 7:24.

Causes Of Spiritual Backwardness

Jeremiah 15:6:
6 Thou hast forsaken me, saith the Lord, thou art gone backward: therefore will I stretch out my hand against thee, and destroy thee; I am weary with repenting.

Backwardness is a spirit. The spirit of backwardness is the spirit of rebellion and the spirit of rebellion is the spirit of witchcraft, 1 Samuel 15:23. God does not want his children to be rebellious, rebellion leads to backwardness. When we start to go contrary to the plan and purpose of God for our lives, we begin to go backwards and not forward. Today we are going to praying a prayer I titled: Prayer to destroy the spirit of backwardness. This prayer will empower you to kill the illicit desires of the flesh that leads you to rebellion against God and also strengthen your spirit in the inner man to serve God.

Our God is a merciful father, He loves His children so much and unconditionally, He sent His Son Jesus to die for us and to move us from backwardness to forwardness, God through Christ has delivered us from darkness to light, Colossians 1:13, from curses to blessings, Galatians 3:13, because of Christ obedience, God has declared bus righteous, Romans 5:19. God did all these for us out of love, He didn’t have to do it, but He did. He did this so that we can live like Christ and not live a backward life. He know that when we go backwards, we go back to sin, and sin leads to demotion, stagnation, failures, disappointments, sicknesses, and all kinds of demonic afflictions.

Sin ultimately will lead us to eternal damnation, but that shall never be your portion in Jesus name. This prayer to destroy the spirit of backwardness will empower you to resist the devil and stand your ground in Christ. My prayer for you is this, You shall keep going forward and never backward in life again in Jesus name. God bless you.

Breaking The Spirit of Backwardness

Ephesians 6:12 says, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Galatians 6:17 says, It is written, From henceforth, let no man trouble me, For I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.

To dream about the village is to possess the spirit of backwardness and failure. This is a stubborn spirit from the father’s house or mother’s house that can render one useless in life.
