Any of you who pray - would you cover me with prayer please?

This sounds overly dramatic to my "secular" head, but I feel that The Dark One is fighting me.

I am getting some sleep - but plagued by nightmares. Vicious, dark, vampire + evil filled nightmares. During the day I am fighting thoughts of inability, that I can't possibly teach my children and "train them up in the way they should go", that God doesn't really want me, that he cannot possibly love me.

Not the "normal" kind of "how could He love me thoughts" you know like after you have done something you know God frowns on, but just random whispers in my ears when I'm driving the car, trying to sleep, or teaching my kids. Intrusive thoughts, I am SURE it is the Dark One. When they come I cast him out, (literally thinking "Satan, get thee gone!") and pray for God's strength, but I am tired and impatient with my kids. I don't need to up my Zoloft I am sure that's not it. I take a sleeping pill sometimes but that doesn't stop the nightmares.

I could uses some powerful prayers sisters! I need some sleep so I can be a good mama - and fight during the day.

Satan can't read our thoughts(Hallelujah!) so when you say Flee from me Satan, you've got to say it out loud. A hissing whisper still works if you don't need the world to know-but at home, go ahead and say it loud and proud in front of the kids-teach them "resist the devil and he must flee!!"

I'll try to bubble bathe you in prayer!!

Glad to hear I am not the only one under attack, you know, misery loves company!

I've read the book though, you have too, we know who wins in the end!

Praying for the Lord to guard you and protect you, that the Lord would remind you of who you are in Christ and that you would stand firm in that truth. Praying that you would be able to take every thought captive to Jesus Christ and that He would give you comfort and rest.

(((HUGS))) to you ... funny that we have the same name as I am currently under the same dark oppression in my own life.

Blessings to you!!

Praying for you, if you can't get anything else out loud, just keep saying Jesus, Jesus, Jesus over and over. A name more powerful than the dark one could ever be.

So glad that Satan can't read our thoughts, so Heather, just tell Satan to leave in the name of Jesus and he will HAVE to go. Of course, that doesn't mean he won't come back, he always does, but cover yourself in the blood of Jesus and that keeps him and his demons away for quite a while. Also, know that if you are a child of the Lord's he can only oppress you, NOT possess you!
