MFM Daily Devotional 31 May 2023 MESSAGE

Today, we are looking at hindrances to answered prayers. While Daniel was fasting and praying, an intense battle was raging in the spiritual realm. The prince of the kingdom of Persia temporarily withstood Daniel from receiving God’s message from the angel. Because of this conflict, he had to wait twenty-one days for the revelation.

This Persian prince was not a human ruler, but a demon from satan’s kingdom. He was defeated only when Michael, Israel’s prince, came to help the angel. Dearly beloved, evil forces in the spiritual realm can hinder answers to prayers like the one we read in today’s Fire scripture.

Paul says in the book of Ephesians 6:12, “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” The devil is so powerful that he can deceive, cause problems and sicknesses and black prayers from getting answers -like the case of Daniel who kept at it for twenty-one days (2 Cor. 4:4; Job 2:7). The devil can also hinder the righteous.

Zechariah 3:1 says, “And he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.” Dear reader, there are many things we do that also help the devil to hinder our prayers. At times, we exercise doubt, unbelief and utter negative words after hot prayer sessions. We easily give up when it seems like the answer is not coming the way we expect it.

But Daniel did not give up and God sent reinforcement to help him. What happened here to Daniel is just a glimpse of the unseen battles going on in the spiritual realm. These conflicts affect the course of nations and individual lives, but they do not have ultimate control over people’s choices. God’s people can be victorious over evil spiritual forces by applying God’s word and through prayer.
