Deut. 30:16, 11:26-28, In that I command thee this day to love the Lord thy god, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments, and his statutes, and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the Lord thy god shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it. Behold, I set before you this day a blessing and a curse; a blessing, if ye obey the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you this day: and a curse, if ye will not obey the commandments of the Lord your God, but turn aside out of the way which I command you this day, to go after other gods, which ye have not known.

Deut. 30:15, 19, See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil. I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live.

Jos. 24:15, And if it seem evil unto you to serve the Lord, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord. Is. 55:1, Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come, buy, and eat; yea, come buy wine and milk without money and without price.

Jer. 26:3, If so be they will hearken, and turn every man from thy evil way, that I may repent me of the evil, which I purpose to do unto them because of the evil of their doings.

Joel 2:32, And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered: for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, as the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.

John 5:40, 6:37, And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life. All that the Father giveth me shall come to men, and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.

Acts 2:21, And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.

Rom. 10:11, 13, For the Scripture saith, whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

II Tim. 2:21, If a man therefore purge himself from these, he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the master's use, and prepared unto every good work.

Rev. 22:17, And the Spirit and the bride say, come. And let him that heareth say, come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.

Men are addressed as free agents and may be saved if they will. In other words, men and women have a free will to accept or reject the things of God. He gives them a free will and we have no right to violate their free will. Key phrases in the Scripture are: if ye obey, if ye will not obey, choose life, choose you this day whom ye will serve, if so they will hearken, whosoever shall call, if a man therefore purge himself, come, will not come, and whosoever will.

TESTIMONY - This is a vivid testimony of a pastor, his wife and their church about what happened when psychic prayers were prayed for them. These are friends of ours and we have their permission to use their testimony.

This situation came about because the pastor taught the people about unforgiveness and entered into deliverance. The families would not forgive each other for past offenses. Some of the congregation did not want deliverance, and fled from the teaching and ministering of it.

After the people left the church, they went to other churches and prayer groups. There, they prayed for the pastor that God would make him get back into line and give up deliverance. This is not a prayer to God but a prayer to Satan. Their prayers loosed demons on the pastor and his family.

They were trying to control the pastor and his wife's wills. These were Jezebels that wanted the church back like they had it before. They had controlled the church and the pastor whom they called "Our Little Boy".

The demons manifested and knocked the curtains off the wall of the pastor's house. One demon manifested and walked in front of our car as we were driving back home that night after this visit. The demon looked like a half man from the waist down. The purpose was to cause me to drive off the road and to kill us.

The Holy Spirit showed the pastor and his wife what had happened because of the psychic prayers. They forgave the people that had prayed against them (about eighty persons), broke the curses and soul ties, cast out the demons and sent them back to the senders, and prayed for the people to see what they were doing wrong.

Many things happened to the people that left and prayed against the church. They suffered from divorce, family problems, sickness and death. As you can see, it is dangerous to pray psychic prayers and fight against deliverance.

SPOKEN CURSES - There are two ways that we can curse another person. We can pray a psychic prayer or we can speak against another person. The words we speak go out into the air and they have power to do good or evil. We need to be careful what we speak as well as what we do.

WARFARE - Periodically, Earline and I have to break the curses that are placed against us and our ministry. You can feel the spiritual pressure building up and it is necessary to go to spiritual war. We forgive those who knowingly or unknowingly are praying or speaking against us, break any curses or soul ties, send the demons back to those who sent them, and pray that their eyes will be opened.

SUMMARY - A psychic prayer is any prayer that does not line up with the Word of God. If you pray contrary to the Bible, then you are praying to Satan. Satan then has the right to loose demons on the people that you prayed for as well as yourself.

Since God gave everyone a free will to follow or not to follow Him and His Precepts, then we have no right to try to impose our will on others even if it seems to be for their best spiritual interests. God did not create us as robots with controlled minds and actions.

Therefore, be very careful how you pray and speak. Study your Bible to find out how God thinks and acts so that you can pray in accordance with His Will. Also study to see how you should speak and bless others as well as your family.
