#2c Understanding Satan’s Footholds in Personal Spiritual Warfare

Published on February 27, 2013 By Susanne

So far in this series on Personal Spiritual Warfare, we have looked at what the term actually means and how we are expected to respond in this battle between good and evil, light and darkness.  In this post, we will continue with our theme by looking at what the Christian means when they talk about Satan’s Footholds in our lives.

This topic is essential for all those learning and practicing Prayer Ministry.  What do we mean by footholds, what are the signs of footholds, how do the footholds get there and how can we pray to help people recognise the footholds they already have in their life?

A.  What do we mean by Satan’s ‘Footholds’?

“In your anger, do not sin.  Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry, and do not give the devil a foothold…..” Ephesians 4:26-27.
