Prayer Overcomes Powers and Principalities
Today in continuation with the monthly theme “When Men Pray”, we are again privileged to meet and encounter the most explicit account of what actually happens in the spiritual realm in so far as spiritual warfare is concerned.

It is also interesting that this event happened to be the door of their release from the Babylonian exile which lasted 70 years.
The Necessity of Praying Men
In our passage today we reflect on the event that took place in Philippi where Paul and Silas were put in prison for freeing a young girl from demonic oppression.
