THE PRAYER OF RETURN TO SENDER
To return the sender to the sender is the objective of this form of prayer. To understand this teaching, a certain spiritual dimension is required. The kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan are spiritual entities; they cannot be seen with natural eyes.
There are four types of Christians: spiritual Christians, those who understand and can live in the kingdom of God, which is itself spiritual; carnal Christians; religious Christians; and traditional Christians. Churches are divided according to these four types of Christians. The prayer aimed at sending demonic envoys back to their senders is not accepted by all churches. This can be understood because it would first require accepting that the satanic world is a spiritual reality that acts only to destroy, slaughter, kill, or steal.
A pastor who did not believe in the attacks of the satanic world denigrated in his sermons those who taught otherwise. But one fine morning, he woke up with a large swelling on his foot. This swelling resembled elephantiasis. He had dreamt that two dogs had licked his feet. When he went to the hospital, his condition could not be diagnosed since elephantiasis does not develop suddenly.
The following night, God opened his spiritual eyes, and he saw that it was two members of his church who had transformed into dogs and had come to lick his feet. He rose and prayed a prayer of battle. By morning, his feet had returned to normal. From that day on, he changed his view of the satanic world and ordered all the witches in his church to confess, or else they would face his curses.
Jesus told his disciples that he knew someone among them would betray him and that it would be better for that person not to have been born. By saying these words, it was, in reality, a curse from Jesus on Judas.
In the prayer of return to sender, there is no sentimentality. I was sent by God on a fifteen-year mission to a local church. A group of nine witches (one man and eight women), members of the church, came to me and offered three choices: have a fatal accident, commit adultery, or go mad. In return, I asked them to meditate on Isaiah 49:26:
“I will make your oppressors eat their own flesh; they will be drunk on their own blood as with wine. Then all mankind will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.“
They informed me that their decision was made, and the demons were already prepared to carry out their mission. According to them, it was up to me to leave the church or stay and face their wrath. Faced with such a situation, what would you have done in my place? Clearly, I never even thought of giving in to Satan’s threats, let alone his workers. What I simply did, and it makes sense, was to return the “gift” to those who sent it to me.
In my prayer, I simply told the demons to go back to their senders. I did not curse these witches. I simply told the demons of accident, adultery, and madness to go back to those who had sent them to me because I did not want their “gifts.” The consequence of this return is not my doing but that of those who are behind the gift. For my part, I only refused a gift. So it’s only natural for the bearers of the gift to return it to the rightful owner. After the prayer I made, only one person from that group was alive four months later.
An elderly woman, a witch, wanted to transmit a spirit of madness to me. Having been spiritually warned, I prayed the prayer of return to sender. On the day she was supposed to transmit the spirit of madness to me, she insisted on greeting me. When I shook hands with her, she immediately went mad and undressed. After a few hours, I had to ask God for forgiveness. I prayed for her, and she regained her senses.
Another day, it was an old neighbor who decided to make me leprous. For this, he had to sprinkle a colorless powder at the gate of my courtyard. I was also spiritually warned and prayed the prayer of return to sender. Just as we had come out, my wife and I, the Holy Spirit told us to return home immediately. When we arrived, we found that the old neighbor had climbed over the adjoining wall and had entered our house. He had already done his dirty work and was about to climb back over the wall, not wanting to go through the “mined” door he had created. I stayed outside and ordered him to come out. After some hesitation, he had to leave all sweaty. So, what should have happened to me happened to him: within two weeks, all the toes of his feet were gone.
In Esther 7:10, the gallows that Haman had prepared to hang Mordecai served to hang himself instead of Mordecai, after Esther and her people had fasted for three days, asking God to save them. What Haman had prepared for others was turned against him.
Daniel 6:22-25, those who conspired against Daniel to have him thrown into the lion’s den paid the price. Indeed, Daniel relied on God and prayed throughout the night, so much so that the king could not sleep. The king himself came early in the morning to see that the lions had not harmed Daniel. Instead of Daniel, he had his plotters thrown into the den, and the lions promptly tore them apart. In Psalms 35:3 and 8, David said to God:
“Brandish spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Say to me, ‘I am your salvation!’… May ruin overtake them by surprise—may the net they hid entangle them, may they fall into the pit, to their ruin.“
In Proverbs 26:27, Solomon said:
“Whoever digs a pit will fall into it; if someone rolls a stone, it will roll back on them.“
At the end of the year and the beginning of the year, this form of prayer is fitting because these are periods when Satan’s servants are active in fulfilling their vows and making new pacts. These pacts can concern you or your loved ones; it is, therefore, a highly important matter.
There is a fetish to which many people entrust themselves in exchange for a long life. Those bound to this fetish are obliged to periodically give the lives of close relatives in exchange for their longevity. That’s why this kind of prayer is not done with feelings; it’s a matter of life or death. It’s either you, or the one who wants your destruction, who will die.
An eighty-year-old father had bound himself to this fetish. During his life, he sacrificed eight of his children to the fetish, leaving only two, one of whom was a friend of mine. This friend was also about to be taken by the fetish. With a fellow pastor, I went to see the octogenarian father of my friend to inform him that we knew he was responsible for the death of his children. He acknowledged the fact but refused to get rid of the fetish. We informed my friend, who was then only 37 years old, that someone wanted his imminent death without telling him it was his own father. We asked him if he agreed that we prayed the prayer of return to sender. Obviously, he agreed. The same week, his
his father died and he lives to this day. He is over fifty years old.
There are also Satan’s workers who hold your destiny in their hands. From a spiritual mirror they watch you day and night, and every good thing that should happen to you is diverted by them. They spend their time manipulating your life, preventing you from fulfilling your promises. You receive good prophecies but none of them come true because of these shadowy manipulators.
When you pray and your request is answered, these manipulators divert it. Today you are free of the spell, but the very next day the manipulators put it back on you, so that your life is made up of endless prayers and battles. As you will have noticed, you are no stranger to what is happening to you. The same demons are almost always being sent to you. To put an end to this situation, one prayer is enough: tell the demons to return once and for all to their commissioners and prosper there; in short, that the manipulators themselves be manipulated by the demons they send.
May no one ever again manipulate your destiny.
