Many young children, especially those aged three to five years, can hardly sleep without the lights on or the company of their older sibling or parent.
When it comes to adults, we might not need to use a nightlight to sleep, but we might feel some confrontations with the devil that we must handle spiritually.
The power of darkness refers to the works of the devil and his agents to destroy God’s children and make them his own. Without much knowledge of the Scripture and prayers, the powers of darkness can quickly take over one’s faith in God.
Therefore, this piece will take you through seven strong prayers alongside some Scriptures to tackle the powers of darkness.
Before you start, save these prayers for someone stop bothering you.
