In hearing from numerous intercessors across the country, there is a common thread among many. There is a sense of oppression and confusion in the air that is almost tangible. Due to the increased misinformation swirling on the internet and the growing division and infighting between political parties and public figures, those sensitive to the spiritual realm can tend to feel overwhelmed by the chaos. I personally experience it as a “swirl” of thoughts and impressions that end up distracting and, at times, immobilizing me in moving forward.

For some, these impressions produce symptoms of depression. For others, it causes disorientation and a lack of focus. For still others, it causes feelings of defeat and hopelessness. It’s not necessarily new. Intercessors have been picking it up for months. The problem is, the enemy wants us to think that what we are feeling is about us; our problems, our faults, and our inabilities.

Yet, I want to remind some of you who might be experiencing this – what you are picking up is probably not about YOU! If you are feeling overwhelmed in the place of prayer or dealing with a lack of clarity and confusion, your spiritual antennas may be picking up the battles that are raging in the spiritual realm. The various principalities and powers that hover over regions, and even this nation, have an impact on us – many times without realizing it.

And you were dead in the trespasses and sins  in which you once walked, following the course of this world, following the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience—  among whom we all once lived in the passions of our flesh, carrying out the desires of the body and the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, like the rest of mankind. (Ephesians 2:1-3 ESV)

The chaos at regional and national levels is being fueled by these demonic principalities and powers that are seeking attention and hoping to draw us into the darkness with them. Those who are rebelling against God and pursuing things of the flesh can impact atmospheres through their speech and conduct. Even so, if we can recognize the source of these symptoms, we can refuse to entertain the confusion and choose to go higher.

[E]ven when we were dead in our trespasses, [He] made us alive together with Christ…and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. (Eph 2:5-6 ESV)

By faith, we have been invited to sit with Christ in heavenly places before the throne in order to have proper perspective on the battles below. We do not have to yield to the heaviness or oppression that hovers over the land but go higher into His presence. It is here that we can see clearly and through our prayers and praises, shift the atmosphere through our intercession.

Rather than rebuking any principality (something the disciples never did) we can DISPLACE the heaviness by focusing on the Lord and practicing His presence. Our greatest weapon against demonic oppression is being filled with and empowered by the Holy Spirit. We can pray in the Spirit, worship in the Spirit, and declare the high praises of God! We don’t even have to fight the enemy’s schemes; simply do the opposite. Don’t waste time trying to analyze everything. Don’t keep digging for something that may not even be there. Don’t get stuck in that realm where the devil keeps beating you up. Go higher, get in the throne room, and start praising His goodness over your life, your home, your city, and the nation.

This is why we desperately need an invasion of God’s Spirit to CLEAR THE AIR! The fog of deception and darkness is seeking to cover the land and immobilize our witness. But God’s people can rise up in the power of the Spirit and the presence of the Most High! Now is not the time to faint and be weary. Now is the time to let the Spirit rule instead of our flesh or feelings. Where the enemy wants to fuel guilt, condemnation, and shame, God wants to fuel us with His Spirit!

But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not gratify the desires of the flesh.  For the desires of the flesh are against the Spirit, and the desires of the Spirit are against the flesh, for these are opposed to each other, to keep you from doing the things you want to do.  But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law. (Gal 5:16-18 ESV)

Let’s sanctify our spiritual antennas and tune in to the frequencies of heaven! I have a sense breakthroughs are just around the corner if we just get on the right channel.

  1. I also have been struggling to pray but as I woke up early today and was praying over our leaders and our country. The song that cme to me is I will rejoice by Don Moen (integrity Music,1993) It may seem strange to rejoice now, but it is the way out of sorrow. God has promised to turn our mourning into dancing.

    Satan wants us to mourn. But Scripture tells us that “….the Joy of the Lord is our strength” Nehemiah 8:10. I think that this is in keeping with what everyone else has been posting. Shalom.

  2. Thank you Wanda for this encouraging reminder. Is definitely a timely word. I also have been sensing many of these same things expressed in the comments of my dear brothers and sisters in Christ.
    Rising above the chaos and noise is absolutely impossible without the Spirit of the Lord. I’ve realized that over and over.
    Repenting on behalf of our nation, and then grabbing hold of the many scriptures, found especially in Ephesians, and so many others, that tell us of our victory in our Lord Jesus Christ, King of Kings and Lord of Lords! Thank you all for sharing your insights and encouragement from our Lord Jesus Christ and may we continue to let Him have His way in us!
    Philippians 1:6 “Being confident of this very thing that He who has begun a good work in you(all who belong to Him),will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ,(which is Ephesians 3:19,”…that you,us, may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.”) God’s overall plan In.17:21,23,”…may they also be in Us…” & “….I in them and You in Me….”
    To have the full measure of the Lord like the apostle John they couldn’t even kill him !!! Let us be so full of You Jesus!!!

  3. God’s timing is always perfect. I just found this article today, Aug.4. The battle is continues, intense and sever at times. Thank you for addressing the spiritual symptoms and expressing the cause in a positive light. I have not trusted my assessment and evaluation of these symptoms. Many thanks to Wanda for sharing in this article. May God bless you as you are a blessing to others.

  4. Boy did I need to hear THIS today! This is exactly what I’ve been going through – disorientation and difficulty focusing – bringing it all together for focused intercession. What a good word! Thank you, Wanda!

  5. I believe God is raising up reinforcement intercessors for a time such as this. I have felt called and embolden to pray in the heavenly realms, in a higher atmosphere for several weeks and have felt the Lords guidance in how to be strengthen by Him and how I am to prepare myself to pray to be protected as I humble myself, repent and seek His face for this time.
    Praise! Praise! Praise Him who created all, knows all and has power over all. For those who have been called to “step up” into a higher realm and atmosphere I pray for strength and protection, wisdom and perseverance. I pray for our Glorious and Magnificent Holy Father to reveal the blueprint for strategies of how and when He wants those who have been called to intercede and how to do so for our country, Israel, other Christian countries and the many pockets of believers growing all over the world. This includes those that must worship in hidden places and those who are praying in prisons. We must prepare ourselves, be purified and pray, intercede like Daniel did to which gave reinforcements in the Heavenly Realm at the very time they were needed. Those called must “Step Up” and intercede. Gods Heavenly Army led by His Heavenly Princes have been assigned to battle the evil forces that are furiously trying to defeat God’s people. We need to pray for fresh recruitments, for respite and refreshment for the weary and worn. Our prayers are important it is our assignment.
    Help us Holy Father. Identify those who have been called to pray at such a time as this and give them their charge as they prepare themselves. In the Precious and Holy Name of Jesus. Amen

  6. Thank you Wanda, it does seem that the swirl of fear, confusion, and depression has circled back around in intensity of late. While I agree with all you have said, have you considered that there might be a step further we can take? Are you familiar with Robert Henderson’s teachings on “The Courts of Heaven?” We need to be wise to any place that we might have given God’s enemy a legal right to acuse us or to restrict us….particulaly as intercessors through words we have spoken in agreement with the enemy vs. what God has written about us in His books. This is true of our nation as well…what has God written about our nation…what were His purposes for the U.S. before the foundation of the world. Can we agree with Him that His purposes were always good…for the building up of His kingdom. Let’s repent for every criticism of our nation and agree with God that His purposes will be fulfilled in this land!

  7. Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, And a two-edged sword in their hand…to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron….Praise the Lord!

  8. For the last couple weeks I have been reminded almost daily that we are seated in heavenly places. From all different resources and people. God is preparing those willing to stand in the gap and fight from this position, with the blood of Jesus and the authority he has given us. We have the keys to the kingdom. Lets use them to crush Satan’s influence and set the captives free for good. The Gospel message is Power. Every testimony of Jesus releases Power as well. Lets do this.

  9. Thank you so much for this encouragement…I am new to this site and am seeing daily how valuable it is to me…so many times I have been unaware of how these things affect me and like others have said, “ I just thought it was me.” I am so thankful for the way this site is bringing a unifying to the church nationwide.

  10. I add my thanks to the others before me. This morning in prayer I heard the word displace/displacement and prayed the Spirit to powerfully cleanse me and displace anything in me that’s not of Him. But after reading your article, I understand it’s not about me but about praying in the Spirit to displace the negatively charged atmosphere and divisiveness in our cities, states, and nation. I, too, sense a growing expectancy, a change, a shift.

  11. You have doubly confirmed what I believe is true. We go higher. We do not even talk about enemy( it 8s exactly what he wants]why gove him anymore of anything).
    I continue to cry out to the Lord for how He has given me power to create wealth… because in all this chaos- still have to provide for living. So so difficult right now! Jesus IS & HAS the ANSEER. Please Lord, give me a respite without the distractions 9f what I can do to add to my bank account.
    Thank you Wanda for this word of encouragement💟🕊🔥👣🗝💟

    1. OM Goodness – I thought it was just me! I feel better knowing that it’s NOT me but the enemy. I praise God that I’ve been given a sensitive spirit along with so many others. Thank you for this article. You have given me great comfort!

  12. Thank you so much for this insight into what is going on!!! I too have felt overwhelmed, like I’m in a fog. So many family needs as well as local and national needs. Lord, hear our prayers & thank You for speaking to Wanda about this situation. Amen

  13. There us a song I found on the internet that is a poweful weapon of praise. “I raise a hallelujah in the presence of my enemies. I raise a hallelujah louder than my unbelief. I raise a hallelujah, my weapon is a melody. I raise a hallelujah, Heaven comes to fight for me. I’m gonna sing in the middle of the storm. Louder and louder, you’re gonna hear my praises roar. Up from the ashes hope will arise. Death is defeated. The King is alive.” There are other verses. It is worth listening to and making it your own declaration.

    1. Yes Singing that as prayer daily!
      Powerful for this time. I too concur with
      all responders here today. Thanks too for
      the insight that something is coming. May
      God be lifted higher and His Presence with
      us fill us with joy instead of gloom. We
      will be victorious over all the power of the
      enemy in this nation and Christ’s church.

    2. Yes yes Amen hallelujah I needed that on the verge of caving in to the pressures and dispare !! Yet Praying for USA
      ETC same time overwhelmed by my problems.

    1. I am so thankful for this article. I have been told that I have the gift of discernment and I’m always picking up evil undercurrents. I have the feeling that something is coming, I just don’t know what.

  14. When I woke up this morning I went through my library for tools to use in my time of Bible reading and prayer. I chose my hymnal and Brother Lawrence’s book “The Practice of the Presence of God”. Checked my email before I got started and found this timely message. Thank you for encouraging God’s troups today.

    1. Sandra! Thank you for sharing. I am re-reading “Practicing His Presence”, a combination of excerpts of Brother Lawrence’s and Frank Laubach’s books and testimonies as well as the book ‘Hinds Feet On High Places’! How refreshing this article is; so timely and strengthening! Even those of us who are very ill can participate in changing our atmosphere and the atmosphere of our cities, counties, regions and our Nation for our Father and Lord.

  15. Thank you for this powerful reminder to walk in the Spirit and seek 1st the kingdom of God! Eph. 5:19 is a good verse for us today. “ addressing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody to the Lord in your heart”

  16. I too have been overwhelmed by so many prayers needed on so many different levels that praying with the understanding has been hard. Thank You Lord for the gift and ability to pray in the spirit when words fail.

  17. Thank you for this clarity and encouraging Word about the raging battles in the air around us and our place…. above it! In these days, standing on Truth can feel very lonely. It can make me feel like I have to stand in my own power. Praise Jesus for the Holy Spirit! He can walk us through the minefields to our seat in the Heavenly places next to Christ! Through Him we have EVERYTHING we need!

  18. True! As anointed Christians, we are seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. His Spirit is in us, He is our King of Kings. We have victory by the Blood of the Lamb. I pray in tongues and play worship music. He inhabits the praise of His people. PTL! May the Light of Heaven disperse the👿fog! 🇺🇸 belongs to Holy Trinity. God gave our🦅Christian an-cestors this great nation by suppor-ting George W.and the patriots. Go to the Wallbuilders .com site info. God bless Trump & other believers in DC.
