Effective Prayers Against Satanic Delay

Effective Prayers Against Satanic Delay


Deuteronomy 2:1-3 
Then we turned, and took our journey into the wilderness by the way of the Red sea, as the Lord spake unto me: and we compassed mount Seir many days. And the Lord spake unto me, saying, Ye have compassed this mountain long enough: turn you northward.

In Exodus chapter 4, Pharaoh was told “let my people go”,but he refused. He delayed them until chapter 12 when the yoke of delay was totally broken and they were free forever.

Satanic delay is a dangerous attack. It can put the dream of a man to standstill and his expectation to nothing. It is more better for a person to be moving slowly, than a person experiencing a total delay. Until you destroy the yoke of satanic, you are likely to remain in one spot. Some people feel they are making progress, but they are actually delayed in the sight of people.  There are different types of delay. We have temporal delay, permanent delay, occasional delay. Satan does not attack a person who doesn’t have anywhere going in life. But it will surely influence the destiny of a person who is on a serious mission to accomplish greater things. A person is said to be stagnated when he cannot prosper. A person is said to be stagnated when he simply cannot provide for his immediate family.



A satanic delay is a state of slowing down. It is a weapon of the enemy used to tie down a person’s glory. A satanic delay is when a person is plagued in one spot aimlessly. It is a situation where a person find it difficult to excel. It means to bind you so that you won’t be able to fulfill your destiny. Satanic delay introduces the spirit of struggle, hardship and sorrow. Delay is an invisible spirit that shatter a man’s dream to pieces.

The picture of a delayed man is a serious issue. The arrow of limitation makes a person to wander away from the place of breakthrough. In a more severe cases, if you dreams are pointing to picking snails, waiting endless at the bus stop, being pursued, seeing yourself in the village etc, then they are all bad examples of satanic delay and its manipulations. It is possible for a man to be extremely rich and yet he is delayed. The Bible says, many mighty men are falling. What is the cause of it, it is delay.

The door of a man can be closed when he is passing through the yoke of foundational delay. It is a dangerous thing for a person to experience one big problem at the edge of breakthrough.  The spirit of delay will make a person to work hard, but will remain at the tail region; The person is likely to backslide in the era of disappointments.



  • Divine delay (Delay caused by the Almighty God)
  • Personal delay (Delay could be caused by your own action, mistake or error)
  • Programmed delay (Delay could be programmed into your life by envious enemy)
  • Inherited delay (When you inherit it from your blood line, parents etc)
  • Environmental delay (When witches in your environment does not allow people to progress)
  • Strongman delay (When a strongman has vowed that you will not make it).

Many people are seriously finding it hard to rise up again after many  seasons of limitation and demotion. In the Bible, God used Moses to take away the children of Isrealites from delay (Exodus 14). When we face times of delay we can become frustrated, discouraged, depressed, angry and even shifting blames. All of this combined can become a breeding ground for the enemy to tempt you to quit and give up.

It can be frustrating to find out that a person’s prolonged delay is caused by self. When you are the architect of your problem, you are likely not to see any change until you address the cause of the delay. You must recognize the fact that there are obstacles on your way. You must cry out to God for a quick transformation.

There is nobody that loves to be plagued with delay, if they are any then it means such a person is not a normal person. There is only one good delay and it is divine delay. God sometimes delay a man’s destiny. He delays a man to learn his lesson. He delays a man from marrying a wrong person. He delays answer to prayers.  He delays a man’s expectation.

For example, when God knows that you are planning to visit your family in the village, just because of unforeseen circumstances coming ahead, he may want to disappoint you with finance or puncture the tyre of your car, or make you to have a verbal confrontation with your wife or husband for your good in order to prevent you from travelling to your village side..  (This doesn’t mean going to village is bad is a picture spotting out an example).

In spite this, not minding the implication, many stubborn fellow would still find ways to travel despite the signs, and possible obvious warnings. The Bible says, my people are perish for lack of knowledge. He also says, “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts” (Isa. 55:8–9).

Satanic delay can influence a man to be working on a wrong career for years without promotion. For example, the enemy  can bless a man with a temporal job, he can give a person good people, an enemy can push a wrong man or woman to you in order to bring everlasting shame and disgrace. It is possible for a person to live in a witchcraft environment where no one makes it.

The spirit of delay slows down progress and causes wrong people to attach themselves to you. It causes rejection by those  who you should help. When a person is under demonic delay, there will be a multiplied effects of sorrow and afflictions. And at the same time, when a person is used to delay, he or she will not realize that there is something or somewhere more better than where he or she is.

Unfortunately, there are people who inherited this stubborn spirit from their parents or background. They may not be responsible  for being restricted, yet they suffer more than their parents. That’s why it is important to break the yoke now before it breaks you permanent tomorrow.

Many people are going through frustration, pain, agony and terrible suffering and yet there are no people to resurrect their hope and aspirations. There are some people who have the spirit of satanic delay that have been dispatched to their lives to monitor and disgrace them, so that they will not go beyond a place and stage in life. I pray for you, may that not be your portion, in the name of Jesus.


How does satanic delay operates in a person’s life?

  1. To kill steal and destroy. John 10:10.
  2. To destroy a man’s hope and expectations.
  3. To attack a person through curses and covenant.
  4. To keep a person in one spot for too long without being favoured, rewarded, prospered.
  5. The enemy arrest a person’s destiny and progress, preventing the person from climbing the ladder of greatness. When you are delayed, you cannot be at the right place at the right time.
  6. The enemy divert your destiny. For example, they make you to marry the wrong person, read the wrong course, or pick the wrong job, expose yourself to wrong people.

Enemies plans are,

  1. They want you to die undiscovered, unfulfilled, uncelebrated, and unsung.
  2. They do not want you to do what God wants you to do.
  3. They do not want you to have what God wants you to have such as a fulfilling marriage and children.


How Do You Escape Satanic Delay?

1. Righteousness
Joshua led the children of Israel to conquer Jericho, they were to move forward and take Ai but Achan stole an accursed thing. And the whole of Israel was defeated. Sin causes delay and limitation, it’s righteousness that can deliver you out of them all. That delay may not necessarily be because of your household enemies or witches in the village, but a problem between you, (your character) and God. It may be because of that sin you are hiding! It is that hidden sin that is hiding your success. Lose yourself. Come out of it.

2. Divine Intervention
Pharaoh delayed Israel, until God said enough is enough. This will not continue any longer and with his hand he brought them out and took them into their destiny.
In Exodus chapter 4, Pharaoh was told “let my people go”, but he refused. He delayed them until chapter 12 when the yoke of delay was totally broken and they were free forever.
