4) Inherited Weaknesses
Every man on earth and women too has an inherited weakness. Many persons have anger and/or lust as their weaknesses. These weaknesses are destructive if not dealt with. Your weakness is capable of disgracing you or pulling you down some day if you do not deal with it. Moses expressed anger at the wrong time and in the wrong place and that was why he did not enter the Promised Land. Samson’s problem was sexual lust and that was what led to his fall and capture.
Men, who have lust as weakness that is unchecked, easily stray into adultery not minding whether they are receiving the best attention from their wives. You have to identify your own weakness or weaknesses and be mindful of them. You start dealing with them by having to pray unceasingly. They are not prayers you pray for a while and stop.
Never take your weaknesses for granted because the Devil will always tempt you from your areas of weakness. You can overcome your areas of weakness via deliverance prayers. The book, ‘How to Obtain Personal Deliverance’ by Dr.D.K.Olukoya is worthwhile.
If anger is your weakness, ensure you do not say a word when you are angry. Then walk away from situations and people that can make you angry. If lust is your weakness, try as best as possible to flee all appearance of temptation and avoid over familiarity with the opposite sex.
And pray the relevant prayers without ceasing. Make a decision to stick to your wife alone and always pray for the grace and power to maintain that stand to the end. Not by our power or might but by the Spirit of the Lord (Zechariah 4:7).
Against anger, pray:
Spirit of anger, loose your hold over my life in Jesus name.
For Lust: In the book, ‘Lust-free Christian Living’ by Tope Oni, there are many practical and useful tips to overcoming lust.
Prayer: I bind the spirit of lust and immorality in me in Jesus name.
5) The Strange Woman:
The strange woman is a wolf on the prowl looking for husbands to search from careless wives who cannot keep their home front secure. They are looking for sexually loose and undiscerning husbands to take over and for marriages to destroy.
Before a strange woman can succeed, there must be a crack in the wall of the home or a loop in the life of the husband. Where husband and wife are not united and do not pray together, that home is easy target for a strange woman. Where the husband has weakness such as sexual lust taken for granted, he falls easy prey.
The battle against the strange woman is for the wife in the home to fight because she will be the major loser. Many homes and marriages have been destroyed by the strange woman. Woman, fight for your marriage. Arise and fight spiritually to save your home and marriage.
You should arise and fight now in order to preserve the future of your children. Fight now else the strange woman forces you to enroll in the club of Ms. (Married but now single); the Divorcee club or the Single Parents club. Fight now so that a strange woman will not collect food from your mouth.
Fight now to secure your tomorrow and use the weapon of prayer to win your husband from the clutches of the strange woman. Do not just sit down and expect that a good marriage will just happen. Fight spiritually to make the good marriage of your desire to happen
The strange woman is often someone close to you and not far away. They do not carry labels on their forehead that identifies them. Some of them are agents of darkness from the pit of hell on a demonic assignment to destroy homes and marriages.
Lord Jesus, let the sexual desires and fantasies of my husband be toward me alone
I break every emotional attachment between my husband and the strange woman in Jesus name
I declare my husband’s emotions dead to the strange woman in Jesus name
Every secret moves by my husband towards extra marital affairs, be exposed in Jesus name
Oh Lord, let there be irreparable conflict between my husband and the strange women in his life in Jesus name.
The book titled “Woman, Fight for Your Marriage’ by Bimbo Odukoya is a book every woman should have.
