People ask why they don't get healed every time that something's wrong with them. Ministers pray for them and when they don't get it, they blame the minister.
When you are first saved, you're like a baby. God permitted others to pray for you then. But after a while, He expects that "baby" to walk and take care of himself. A lot of people still want to remain babies, and God has "put them down" and told them to walk, but they don't want to do that.
We'd better wake up, change our way of praying, and use our authority over the devil. We have the authority to do this ... God has given us that authority when we became born again.
We cannot keep praying and asking God to get rid of the devil for us. Jesus already paid the price all at once for us when He went to the cross, and He is not doing it again.
He gave us the power and authority for taking care of satan. We are seated with Jesus at the right hand of the Father, far above all principalities and powers, and we are to put them under our feet!
