Today we will be dealing with prayer points against afflictions. Before we delve fully into the topic, it is vital that we give meaning to the word afflictions so you can know how essential this prayer guide is.
Afflictions could be defined as anything that causes severe pain, the agony of reproach. Afflictions could come in different forms. It could come in the form of sickness, plague, the torment of the devil, and so on. Most times, the enemy itself purposely stage afflictions on the lives of people, especially Christians. Many people believe that once they accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and savior, they have been exempted from afflictions. However, that is not true; the enemy becomes so bittered that we give our life to Jesus, which is why we believers are always at the receiving end of afflictions from the enemy.
Remember, the life of Job is a practical example. The devil would not have thought about inflicting suffering on Job as a test if Job was not a faithful servant of God. The enemy believed that it is because God has blessed Job bountifully, that is why Job is serving God. I decree by the mercies of the most high; the fire of the Holy Ghost destroys every plans of the devil to inflict sufferings upon you.
God instructed this prayer guide titled Prayer Points Against Afflictions because God plans to free people from their afflictions. The scripture says in the book of Psalm 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all. God understands that the afflictions of the righteous are plenteous; that is why God has made a covenant to deliver us from all afflictions. As you and I begin to use this prayer guide, the divine help from Jehovah will locate us in the name of Jesus.

I pray that your right hand will heal me in the name of Jesus.
