Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and glory forever. Amen (Matthew 6:9-13).
I listened as the pastor screamed. “Satan, I bind you in the name of Jesus. You have no place or power here. You are a liar and I rebuke you …”. His prayer went on like this another minute or two, his congregation erupting with shouts and applause.
Where in the Bible do we find any Christian character praying to the devil?
Are such ramblings prayer in the Spirit or communication with an evil spirit?
Jesus taught His disciples how to pray by addressing God the Father. Christian prayer is communication to your Father in Heaven and not to the enemy of your soul.
