The LORD is impressing upon me the need to detail a few things to you re: recent advances in prayer against satanic forces in Momence, Illinois, USA:
Late August 1st into early morning August 2nd '01, on my evening prayer walk, the LORD had me praying over the city of Momence, circling a sizable area in the secluded island park which is located in the middle of the city. I had determined in my heart not to quit until, as you suggested, demonic oppression and influence had been lifted.
I circled the track numerous times, fighting constant attacks from many different spirits. While repeatedly speaking the name of Jesus, I discerned in my path a wall of about twenty demons that had manifested to oppose me. I stayed focused, ignored their presence and kept on praying. However, it was evident I now had others to accompany me on my prayer walk. I set my mind steadfast to accomplish my purpose, continually speaking the name of Jesus, claiming His power and pleading for revival.
Not much later, while heading towards the railroad overpass that divides the island park in half, I discerned an immense evil presence descend upon it, still some ways ahead of me. It was so clear I was tempted to fear, but with my gaze set on revival and the knowledge of the power of GOD available through faith, I spoke to the evil presence, whom I readily identified as the demon prince of Momence. I told him that I, in and of myself, was no match for such a power; but that my GOD is able to crush his head and bring revival to Momence, and to the rest of the world as well.
The demon could do nothing. I continued around the track, still praying, but very encouraged that my prayers were beginning to make a difference.
At one point during my repeated circling a train roared by. The sound of it was such that I was encouraged to speak the name of Jesus much louder than I had earlier that night. In direct response, the power and peace of GOD fell down upon the whole city, and a recognizable demonic oppression was lifted. I raised my hands the whole next lap in praise to the LORD GOD Almighty for His grace, then left for home in victory shortly thereafter.
