Spirit Of Sleep: 25 Proven Prayers Against It Now

Listen to this article

Proverbs 24:33–34:A little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to rest, and poverty will come on you like a thief and scarcity like an armed man.”

As Christians, have, we allowed the spirit of sleep to take over our lives? If so, we should wake up before we are destroyed by the devil. Remember, the devil never sleeps at all; instead, when we sleep, it’s when he starts to work on us. God as well as the devil are interested in our spiritual alertness. When you are spiritually asleep, you might miss what is happening in the spirit realm. Even if you are educated but you are asleep, you will suffer a lot until you wake up.

In case there is a voice that is telling you that you don’t have to fast for long, those who fast for long will have ulcers. That voice is louder than the voice of God. That voice is telling you that you should die.
Beware of any voice that is telling you that a little bit of unrighteousness will not spoil your faith, that is the destructive voice of the devil and his agents.

If there is anything God will have to show you, you have to communicate with your spirit. That is why God is shouting to all of us today, ‘Church, wake up’; brothers, wake up; sisters, wake up. Mighty men and women of God who used to roar and thunder with unction and anointing of God are now too busy doing other things. Most of them have gotten too fat and lazy, have no word from God, and have no fresh unction! Their lamp is going out! They are asleep!

Brethren who once were on fire for God, full of love and joy in Jesus, once looking for His return-are now drifting, cold, and full of doubt and fear. They are half asleep, but will soon fall into a deep sleep! They once had the glory of God, the power of the Holy Ghost. But now, their lamps are dim and dying! They now have adultery in their hearts; they play hard; they eat and drink; they act religious, but their hearts now grow cold and hardness is setting in.

I’ve seen Christians who are living under that deep sleep from the Lord. Their favorite expression is, “I don’t see it! I just don’t understand! I’m not convicted! I don’t feel anything.” They are empty; they have no zeal, no fire, no commitment! They coast along! They are drifting with the spirit of this wicked age. Brethren let us raise and pray like never before:
