Presidential Prayer Watch Prayer Update 

‘The Scapegoat Strategy’

“…lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices” (II Cor 2:11).

     Our continuing to pray God’s word as a strategy in our ongoing intercession for the president will always be appropriate because by doing so we are coming into agreement declaring God’s will and heaven’s purpose on earth. As one great saint of old once said, “When the Scriptures speak God speaks”. In other words, ‘Thus says the Lord’ means thus says the Lord regardless of who might disagree. 

     Yet along with praying the word it is vital we hear prophetically regarding any change or shift in strategy, both in reference to ours or Satan’s. Dreams and visions, while not on the same level as God’s word, will be invaluable tools in the spiritual battles we will face from now unto the end of the age. Acts 2:17-23 confirms this.

     Prior to his boldly declaring, “Now thanks be to God who always leads us to triumph in Christ” Paul reminds the church at Corinth, “lest Satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices”. One definition of the word translated ignorant means to ignore. If the church failed to recognize and do something to counter Satan’s devices, they could lose the advantage in the war against spiritual darkness.
