Months ago, our friend called to say she was possessed by a demon and she was terrified. She did not want to be alone and asked if we would come sit with her. Immediately, we went to her home to discern the situation. Sadie shared that a dark, black figure comes every night to torment her, and that it comes when she is alone as well. She let us pray with her for freedom from this torment and for Jesus’ help in her home and life.
Afterwards, we shared the story of the man who came to Jesus asking him to cast out a demon that was tormenting his son. She was very interested in the story, so we continued to visit her household weekly to share stories with Sadie and her husband about Jesus helping people. They listened quietly but did not offer any questions or commentary for a while. One evening after sharing a story, as we ate dinner together, Sadie’s husband said, “Jesus always helps the people in the stories you tell. Can Jesus help me, too?”
We assured Sadie’s husband that Jesus is absolutely willing to help him, all he needs to do is pray and ask for help. Unfortunately, as weeks went on, Sadie became more interested in stories but her husband became less interested and more distant. Not only did he stop inquiring about Jesus, he turned more and more to other things for help and hope, even inviting a witch doctor to come and ‘heal’ his wife. As far as we know, Sadie’s husband never asked Jesus for help, but we regularly share meals and stories with them and hope one day they will call out to Him in faith.
-Pray for Sadie and her household to be spiritually protected and free from all demonic oppression.
-Pray that they will become aware of Jesus’ Light and Presence with them.
-Pray that they will call out to Him in prayer and see His answers to their prayers.
