The Bible makes it very clear that demons and evil spirits are real. Their preoccupation around the world is to afflict, torment, hurt or harm people and make life difficult and unbearable for them.
Without the help of God, evil spirits are stronger than any human being. We are only able to overcome them through the name of Jesus.
The Lord Jesus and His disciples affirm that demons and evil spirits are subject to believers through the name of Jesus Christ in Luke 10:17,19.
Luke 10:17,20 says thus:
"And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through they name. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven".
Speaking about the existence of evil spirits, Ephesians 6:12 has this to say:
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places"
We, therefore, need protection from evil forces.
We are told in Ephesians 6:13 what steps to take to survive the onslaught of these evil forces:
"Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand"
(Check Ephesians 6:13)
To ward off the forces of evil you should regularly pray to God.
Ephesians 6:18 gives this admonition:
"Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints"
So pray these prayer points regularly:
(1) Pray that as God built a protective wall around Job, his family, and his businesses so that Satan could not attack him, that God should do the same for you. (Job 1:9-10).
(2)Pray that God should send his angel to encamp round about you and your family and deliver you from an evil plot they may have against you(Psalm 34:7).
(3) Pray that when the enemies and forces of darkness come against you like a flood that the Spirit of the Lord should raise a standard against them
(4) Pray that the Lord will send his angels to fight the forces of evil that are fighting you, confound and confuse them and frustrate the evil agenda they have against you and your family(Psalm 35:1-5).
(5) Pray that anywhere the forces of evil and darknesses are gathered that the Lord's army would arise and pursue them.
(6)Pray that God will push away from you those that are demonized or agents of darkness.
(7)Pray that God will demobilize human agents of darkness and make them helpless in being able to harm you.
(8) Pray that God will make you a flame of fire, make the devil and his demons flee from you anytime they see you or your family members. (Hebrew 1:7, James 4:7).
Pray these prayer points in the name of Jesus. If you are not born again, these prayer points will not be effective. If you want to give your life to the Lord Jesus, simply turn away from your sins, ask for forgiveness through the name of Jesus and make Jesus the Saviour and Lord of your life.
