Continuation of Hedge of Protection Prayer and Spiritual Warfare Prayers

Righteousness breastplate – guard our hearts (emotions) from fear, guilt, shame, rejection, etc.  All these characteristics is not the characteristics of God but are the characteristics of Satan’s kingdom.  It protects us from the accusations of Satan. Philippians 3:9

The Gospel of Peace, shod our feet with the gospel of peace to stand – salvation, Romans 1:1 ““17.  It is knowing our assurance and eternity through salvation through Jesus Christ and not giving into doubt or unbelief.

Faith, Shield, God can protect us from every “fiery dart” that Satan can throw at us (false doctrine, lusts of the flesh).  Faith comes through the Word of God.

Salvation, Helmet – the “hope” that salvation provides and protects our minds against things like accusations, fear, etc.  Fiery darts come into our minds as thoughts opposing God’s truth as lies.  2 Cor. 10:5 says to cast down those thoughts.

Word of God, Sword of the Spirit, is our “offensive” weapon that Christians must use by speaking the Word of God.  It cuts the enemy when we quote the Word of God. Hebrews 4:12.  God’s word is truth John 1 says Jesus is the Word.  The word cuts into the soul and spirit of a person.

Can We Loose that Hedge of Protection?  Spiritual Bondage

Yes, in Ecclesiastes 10:8 He that diggeth a pit shall fall into it; and whoso breaketh an hedge, a serpent shall bite him.  Sin, puts holes in our hedge for the enemy to bit.

Sin punches a hole in the hedge of protection, it is an open door to the enemy and we can get bitten by serpents (evil spirits).  The enemy wants to steal your possessions, peace, joy, your health, your emotions, etc.  Not only that, steal your children, etc.  The wages of sin is death especially to those into habitual sin according to Galatians 5:21 will not see the Kingdom of God.  Not only that when we entertain sin, it can become addictive which is a spirit and then deliverance by casting out demons needed to get free from the addiction and sin habits.

Psalms 80:12-13 Why hast thou then broken down her hedges, so that all they which pass by the way do pluck her? The boar out of the wood doth waste it, and the wild beast of the field doth devour it.

Lamentations 3:7 He hath hedged me about, that I cannot get out: he hath made my chain heavy.

Isaiah 5:5 And now go to; I will tell you what I will do to my vineyard: I will take away the hedge thereof, and it shall be eaten up; and break down the wall thereof, and it shall be trodden down:

When there is a breach in our hedge, the enemy can come at us with emotional, spiritual attacks as well as physical attacks (sickness and disease).

God knew no man could be perfect and he sent His son to not only redeem us but when we do fall short, go to the Son for forgiveness of sin. He is our redeemer.

Before a Person Prays A Hedge of Protection Prayer for Spiritual Freedom

First, It is important, during morning prayer, to check your heart for any breaches.  For example, did you fall into gossip, accusation, used a curse word, go into bitterness, etc.  Take the time to ask the Lord’s forgiveness for your sins to close the breaches so that the enemy cannot attack you rightly.

Second, put on the Whole Armor of God daily.

Third, pray a hedge of protection around yourself, possessions, etc.  Ps. 91.  Remember the enemy wants to kill, steal and destroy.

Fourth, watch your thoughts and watch your reactions towards accusers, etc.

God is Our Hedge of Protection

First, what is a Hedge?

I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands; Your walls (your hedges) are continually before Me (Isaiah 49:15-16).

Hedge of Protection. [hejv pr·TEK·SHn, noun] A metaphor representing God’s defense against evil. Sometimes called a hedge of thorns.

In King James English a hedge refers to any wall, whether of bushes or of stones.  Zechariah 2:5 that hedge is fire.

In God’s good providence, He places hedges around the righteous for protection and blessing. These hedges are like a spiritual fence, wall, or partition. In similar language, the Bible also refers to God’s protection and blessing of the righteous as a shield, a rock, a fortress, and even the hand of God (Psalms 5:11-12).

God is our hedge of protection keeps the enemy out.  We do not fight flesh and blood but a spiritual force  Satan’s Kingdom.

Satans Doors

1 Peter 5:8 “8 Be sober-minded; be watchful. Your adversary the devil prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.

Our war on earth is invisible and is not flesh but spiritual fight in the world we cannot see.  Ephesians 6:11-12.  When someone accuses you, your flesh wants to accuse back but it is not them but the enemy of accusation accusing you through another person.  We should stand and not give into it.  If we can see this principle, the faster we are able to resist and stay out of sin.

11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 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.

Ephesians 6:13-17 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. 14 Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, a

Who is our Hedge of Protection?  God is Our Hedge of Protection

According to Job 1:10  it says Hast not thou made an hedge about him, and about his house, and about all that he hath on every side? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land.

God is our hedge of protection around us. God the Father is the vinedresser and Christ is the hedge that protects us.

What is the hedge of protection protecting us from?

“stand against the wiles of the devil”

Satan wants us to sin.  Satan attacks through accusations, fear, temptations into sin, false doctrines, sickness and disease, occultism, etc.

1. Satan has various “wiles” (lit., cunning arts, deceit, craft, trickery), but Christians need not be ignorant of his “devices” 2Co 2:11

2.  Blinding people via false doctrine – 2 Co 4:3-4; 1Ti 4:1-3

3.  Enticing people to indulge in illicit desires of the flesh and mind – Ep. 2:1-3

4.  Bringing persecution upon those who try to do right – 1 Peter 5:8-9

Is Only Satan we Wrestle with or Are Their Other Demonic forces we Wrestle With?

We wrestle against spiritual hosts of wicknedness.  Not only Satan, but we battle against:

 Principalities and powers

Rulers of the darkness of this age

Spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places

Jesus, after being in the wilderness for 40 days, fasting, was shown by Satan the invisible Kingdoms we cannot see. Things of the air, sea, earth, etc.  The Beast will come out of the sea, Strange demonic powers unchanged from the earth.

2. there are demonic forces at play

While I do not believe demonic “possession” exists today as it did in the days of Christ…

…there are certainly demonic “influences”, such as “doctrines of demons” – 1Ti 4:1-3

We are told to put on the armor of God to cover our whole being from the wiles of the devil.  God is our hedge of protection daily when we are in obedience.

Truth, which serves like a belt.  Truth frees us or keeps us from sin.  How do we get truth?  By studying God’s word.
