Marking Territory

We’ve asked Jehovah Nissi, The Lord Our Banner, to plant His banner in our prodigals’ lives and claim them as His own, and I believe He has done that and is working in their lives in very real ways to bring them back to relationship with Himself. Of course, the enemy is still trying to stop that and is attempting to plant his own banners—things that signify and mark his desired territory. While some banners are temporary, others leave more permanent physical and/or mental markings.

Temporary ones include strongholds; false identities; homes that reflect Satan instead of the Lord; anything that marks them as his.

More permanent ones include mental markings, memories made through evil and vulgarity in the form of movies, music, images, words, thoughts, anything the enemy can burn into memory.

More permanent physical markings include evil and/or vulgar tattoos and scars from addictions, which are true territorial markings on the body.

You possibly know things to add to these lists.

The devil may try, and the markings may be there, but they are powerless to keep our prodigals away from God. Our prodigals belong to God, and these formed weapons will not prosper.

So, until we feel release from God, we pray against these attempts of Satan to mark territory. In fact, not only are we going to pray that our prodigals will no longer participate in these processes because of heart changes, and even before, but that until then, when they attempt any of them, their sources will dry up in physical ways—unavailability and connections severed. Even further, we are going to pray that the people the enemy is using as sources would themselves be saved! Yes, Lord! Praise You, Lord! Praise You, The Lord Our Banner!

“When the enemy comes in like a flood,
The Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him” (Isaiah 59:19 NKJV).

    Thank you for this prayer. My son has horrible scars from drugs on his hands and arms. I stand in word of God. Isaiah 55:5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. I’m praying for others and their prodigal children in the same situation

      Maria, I am so sorry to hear this about your son, but that is a wonderful promise from Isaiah. I am thankful this post touched you. It touched me so much that day. Thank you for praying for others and their prodigals, and thank you for letting me hear from you. Tami
