Dealing with the Hamans in your Life – Spiritual Warfare Prayer


Hi Everybody!

So today I have been contemplating on strategic intercession and spiritual warfare prayer. It is important that you understand that prayer is an important and integral part of your Christian walk. I admit that it was kind of hard for me to get into the habit of it when I was a babe in Christ, but we’ve got to wean off of the baby way of babbling to the Lord and now walk in maturity of mind and start learning to Command our mornings, to pray without ceasing and just have our spirits in tune and meditating on the Word so that we pray with authority.

James 5:16
Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.

The Devil doesn’t know the meaning of sleep because he won’t rest until the children of God are destroyed. So in knowing that we have to step our game up in our prayer lives if we want to protect ourselves and our families from any hidden agendas and assignment from our adversary.

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Today, I feel led to talk about the Haman spirit.

What is the Haman spirit?

Read the Book of Esther Chapters 4-7

In my older post called Fasting with a Purpose – Hit the Target Pt. 1, I refer back to Queen Esther and how Haman the evil prince convinced King Ahasuerus to legalize an evil decree to kill every Jew in the Persian Kingdom. King Ahasuerus did not know that his concubine, Queen Esther was a Jew and that this evil decree would serve not only to harm her and the children of Israel, but it would potential harm her cousin Mordecai as well.

Queen Esther

Esther was a strategic prayer warrior for a queen and knew what Spiritual warfare was all about. She pronounced what I call a 3-day-crisis fast to pray against the plot of Haman. At this time, her cousin Mordecai had been arrested and was sentenced to the gallows to be hanged because of Haman’s scheme at work. You will see that at this point also, the assignment against Esther and the Jews were in full force and effect and she had to step her game up and act on the wisdom she recieved during her prayer and fasting that she initiated to convince the King to reverse this assignment plotted by the evil Prince Haman. When King Ahasuerus found out that Esther was a Jew and how he was tricked by evil Prince Haman into instituting this evil law that would not only jeopardize the children of Israel’s lives, but would also mean his Queen would die as well with her cousin Mordecai that was already awaiting to be hanged in the gallows, King Ahasuerus was infuriated by Haman’s deception. The prayer and fasting that Queen Esther initiated gave her divine wisdom and strategy to overcome this evil plot which not only saved her life and her cousin Mordecai, it also served to save the lives of all the Jews.

The end result is something I will quote from that fasting post:

 “The King loved Esther so much and was heavily enraged by Haman’s evil plot to trick him into killing her and the Jews that King Ahasuerus decided to free Mordecai from the unjust sentence and sentenced Haman into the gallows for his evil deeds. The evil plot and conspiracy against the Jews was reversed in this Fast. “

Esther 7  (NKJV)

Haman Hanged Instead of Mordecai

7 So the king and Haman went to dine with Queen Esther. And on the second day, at the banquet of wine, the king again said to Esther, “What is your petition, Queen Esther? It shall be granted you. And what is your request, up to half the kingdom? It shall be done!”

Then Queen Esther answered and said, “If I have found favor in your sight, O king, and if it pleases the king, let my life be given me at my petition, and my people at my request. For we have been sold, my people and I, to be destroyed, to be killed, and to be annihilated. Had we been sold as male and female slaves, I would have held my tongue, although the enemy could never compensate for the king’s loss.”

Haman – The Evil, Conniving Prince

So King Ahasuerus answered and said to Queen Esther, “Who is he, and where is he, who would dare presume in his heart to do such a thing?”

And Esther said, “The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman!”

So Haman was terrified before the king and queen.

Then the king arose in his wrath from the banquet of wine and went into the palace garden; but Haman stood before Queen Esther, pleading for his life, for he saw that evil was determined against him by the king. When the king returned from the palace garden to the place of the banquet of wine, Haman had fallen across the couch where Esther was. Then the king said, “Will he also assault the queen while I am in the house?”

As the word left the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face. Now Harbonah, one of the eunuchs, said to the king, “Look! The gallows, fifty cubits high, which Haman made for Mordecai, who spoke good on the king’s behalf, is standing at the house of Haman.”

Then the king said, “Hang him on it!”

10 So they hanged Haman on the gallows that he had prepared for Mordecai. Then the king’s wrath subsided.

The most important thing to note here is that the curse that was directed to harm Queen Esther, the Jews and Mordecai was reversed and was sent back to sender who was Haman – the evil, corrupt and conniving prince.

This is just a biblical example of how prayer and fasting (if necessary) can work to reverse an outcome and also work to backfire the plans of your enemies.

People, you may have some Haman’s in your life trying to plot things against you and your family. When you discern their agenda, this isn’t the time to crack under pressure and let them have their way with you.

Stop being complacent! You’ve got to go to God and petition to the KING of KINGS and if necessary, YOU’VE GOT TO GET ON YOUR KNEES!!!! 

You are a Child of the Most high God so prayer and fasting maybe required in some cases to deliver you from the assignment that some people may have against your life depending on the degree of the assignment. The stronger the attack the higher measures you have to take.  If you have several Hamans in your life, you’ve got to step your game up in prayer so that you receive divine wisdom and strategy to overcome their assignments.

Rather than reacting to the assignment, respond to it strategically. Seek God to reverse the curse/assignment so that it goes back to the source. This is serious stuff folks. You cannot afford to be passive in your prayer life. The days are evil and your enemy the Devil, isn’t playing around with you. If the assignment is huge then you’ve got to do something greater in your prayer life to counter-act the assignment. The greater the assignment, the more important it is to up the ante in your prayer life.

I stress the importance of having a prayer partner and seeking even elders in the church to pray with you as you go about your prayer life business if you have no idea what to do. Don’t act in isolation, seek people to pray with you in agreement. Call prayer lines or something but you’ve got to Pray. Sometimes, in the wee hours of the Morning like around 12 midnight-6:00am (the witching hours) you might have to wake your lovely head up and pray. For those of you that think Sleep seems too good to do that, I’m here to tell you that it won’t feel so good when the enemy of your soul has petitioned for your life on the line  and/or has petitioned against your family as well and you didn’t do anything to counter-act that petition because you enjoyed your sleep. The Devil never sleeps, so make no mistake about this because he’d rather see you cry a river rather than you picking up your armor and doing your sword work out routine on a daily basis.

Some people maybe going through some court battles involving their children…parents…step your game up in prayer…

Some people may have heard a bad report in the medical room, step your game up in prayer.

Some people have heard rumors of firings in the workplace….step your game up in prayer.

Some are on the verge of losing their homes or businesses….step your game up in prayer.

Some have heard that they only have a few months to live….step your game up in prayer.

Some are being harassed and have no peace … step your game up in prayer.

Some have heard there is a plan to uproot you from your place of destiny…step your game up in prayer.

People…I hope you are catching my drift here. STEP YOUR GAME UP IN PRAYER! I don’t know how to emphasize this enough, but this has been in my spirit for that past few days, so if you don’t know how to pray or are not even part of a church…the first step is get yourself in a bible believing church. The second thing is get some prayer partners, the third is get some books on prayer especially, intercessory prayer, the fourth thing is get into a cell group, the fifth thing is get involved in ministry so that you are surrounded with like-minded people. Isolation only serves to make you vulnerable to being attacked. You have to guard yourself up and get with the program and realize you need help! At the end of the day, you make the decision on how you are going to proceed from here on out.

Wisdom says, step your game up and PRAY with the WORD as your Spiritual WEAPON of WARFARE. Foolishness says, sleep, sleep, sleep….need I say more?

For those that would like some reading material, I would recommend John Eckhardt’s prayer books and Mary K Baxter’s book called The Divine Revelation of Prayer as starters, but you can look for others on your own. Spiritual warfare is what it is…. a WAR in the spirit. Feed your spirit with the Word and use the Word when you pray. Essentially, we have to learn to use the weapons of our warfare that are not carnal and are mighty in God for the pulling down of strongholds otherwise we will succumb to the schemes and assignments from the enem(ies) in our lives. Don’t wait to be on the defensive when you can be on the offensive right now.

Here are snap shots of the books. There are obviously more you can get at a Christian bookstore but it’s up to you to get serious in your prayer life. I recommend http://www.Christianbooks.com. They have a valuable resource of books that are discounted and they also use Paypal and credit cards for your convenience.

I have a song to minister to you today from  Kurt Carr called We Declare War. I love this song and it always gets me going. I pray that it ministers to your spirit today. God Bless you everybody!

  1. Beautiful post. Richly researched and elaborately explained. The plots and conspiracies that are beyond us are not beyond our God. He will vindicate us and frustrate the efforts of the evil and wicked ones. A good reminder that we should always pray and not give up. The spiritual controls the physical and the more we lean and rely on God, the more supernatural and uncommon our solutions will be! Thanks for giving your time to this. Welldone!

  2. Very well written and a very important message to believers. P.U.S.H.~~pray until something happens. God is IN control ALL the time no matter what and we need to be diligent and faithful to Him. As Paul said, “I have run a good race; fought a good fight and kept the faith”! Every born again, grace forgiven, blood washed child of God NEEDS to embrace the awesome gift of prayer and seeking God’s will in all things. Through Jesus Christ!

  4. This evening I went to see my prayer partner as usual. We pray together for about 30 mins before retiring to our rooms. As we began praying, the Lord spoke to me that there was a haman in our workplace. I told my prayer partner and we went to read the book of Esther. It all became clear to us. After the prayer, I went back to my room and decided to google spirit of haman. That’s how I cam across you article. My request is that you pray with us against this spirit. We will be fasting and praying.
    We work in Iraq which is modern-day Bablylon and believers are a minority.

    • Hi,
      Thank you for visiting my Blog. I believe that it is not a coincidence that you landed on this blog. I will definitely be praying for you guys. In fact I’m going to send your prayer request to my Church, so that you have more praying for you in agreement. Don’t worry about giving me your name. God is in your situation. Understand and believe that there are more for you than those against you says the Lord. These are the following scriptures that came to mind as I read your comment.

      Deuteronomy 20:1
      [ Principles Governing Warfare ] “When you go out to battle against your enemies, and see horses and chariots and people more numerous than you, do not be afraid of them; for the LORD your God is with you, who brought you up from the land of Egypt.

      Be encouraged and know that the Lord is with you. I will pray with you in agreement.

      Matthew 18:20
      For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.”

      Deuteronomy 31:6
      Be strong and of good courage, do not fear nor be afraid of them; for the LORD your God, He is the One who goes with you. He will not leave you nor forsake you.”

      Seek the Lord for Divine strategy and Meditate on receiving divine wisdom from the Lord in Proverbs 2.

      And during your Fast pray this Psalm and meditate on it.

      Psalm 140 New King James Version (NKJV)

      Prayer for Deliverance from Evil Men
      To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.

      140 Deliver me, O Lord, from evil men;
      Preserve me from violent men,
      2 Who plan evil things in their hearts;
      They continually gather together for war.
      3 They sharpen their tongues like a serpent;
      The poison of asps is under their lips. Selah

      4 Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked;
      Preserve me from violent men,
      Who have purposed to make my steps stumble.
      5 The proud have hidden a snare for me, and cords;
      They have spread a net by the wayside;
      They have set traps for me. Selah

      6 I said to the Lord: “You are my God;
      Hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.
      7 O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation,
      You have covered my head in the day of battle.
      8 Do not grant, O Lord, the desires of the wicked;
      Do not further his wicked scheme,
      Lest they be exalted. Selah

      9 “As for the head of those who surround me,
      Let the evil of their lips cover them;
      10 Let burning coals fall upon them;
      Let them be cast into the fire,
      Into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
      11 Let not a slanderer be established in the earth;
      Let evil hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”

      12 I know that the Lord will maintain
      The cause of the afflicted,
      And justice for the poor.
      13 Surely the righteous shall give thanks to Your name;
      The upright shall dwell in Your presence.

      I am believing that the Lord will ambush your Haman in the workplace. Trust God and when He ambushes that Haman, Give the Lord Praise. Be encouraged today, Amen.

  5. I most def. Landed on this page for a reason, I was in church on Sunday and the Pastor was talking about the Haman Spirit and I was like what is he talking about, so I wrote the name down and said I would research it and study the topic, on this week, so Monday comes and I had a busy day it being my Niece birthday etc, but on top of that I begin feeling bad on Monday evening like I was coming down with something out of the blue, so Tuesday morning around 2;00 I start feeling really bad, like my body was aching and throat was really sore, but to get to the point God has been dealing with me about getting up and praying, He always, ALWAYS wakes me up around 2:00 or 2:10a.m prior to me having to be at work at 4:30am but I ended up having strep throat after having to leave work Tuesday morning and going to the doctor, but as you say we have to get up and command our day in prayer, if I would’ve just been obedient to the Lord and got up and prayed instead of being lazy I could’ve casted down that spirit of sickness that tried to over take my body, but here I’m today grateful to receive this confirmation, and insight of what the Haman spirit is, and with a praise report that Im feeling much better. The devil meant it for bad but God meant it for my good.

    • Wow, Amen! Thank you for sharing your testimony. Spiritual warfare is not a joke and sometimes I too feel exhausted during the night and I sometimes get lazy about prayer but when God calls you…you just gotta do what the Holy Spirit wants you to do. There are times when I simply can’t get back to sleep without praying. When you command your morning, believe me, you break barriers that manifest throughout your day. It’s really all about remaining vigilant and determined when it comes to prayer watches. I’m glad that this post blessed you.

  9. Your post helped to widen my understanding of the Haman spirit. Monday morning of this week I got up for my usual moments in the Lord’s presence and I opened the bible to Esther 4. I read it and then I heard in my spirit Haman Spirit and so I started to pray against it..but I still felt the need to do some further study about it, hence I ended up reading your post. Thanks for sharing.

  10. I am so grateful for your post, this spirit of Haman has come against me and thank God he reveals to redeem. Your post confirms everything I have been experiencing and on Wednesday I was led to read through the book of Esther to understand human’s deceptive viperous traits fuelled by this spirit. It uses people in favourable place of opportunity and influence around pastors, leaders to eliminate and destroy others they dislike or even hate. Sadly this spirit will operate in the life of a self seeking, selfish, ‘pseudo spiritual christian’ who allows herself or himself to be used because of personal agenda. That’s why we need to pray fervently for ourselves, pastors and leaders in our churches that the Lord of Host will uncover and defeat this spirit nullifying it works in our lives and our churches. Thank you for your timely word. God richly bless and protect you.
