Can The Devil Hear Our Prayers

Some Christians say that we should keep our fears and our sickness to ourselves because 'the devil can hear' and will use this knowledge against us. Others say we should share our worries with fellow Christians. Which do you think?

If you say a prayer aloud demons can hear you.

Either we beleive that God will protect us from the devil, or we don't.

Do you REALLY believe the devil can eavesdrop on prayers? I don't.

As far as "sharing our worries with fellow Christians," isn't this PRECISELY part of "bearing one another's burdens, and so [fulfilling] the law of Christ?"

How can a burden unshared be borne by another?

Whether the devil can or cannot hear my prayers etc. is of absolutly no concern to me.
1 John 4:4 Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

"This is different from praying in tongues, but if we pray in the Spirit," What did Paul mean when he said he would pray in the Spirit and with the understanding

Would you explain how that statement goes together with Pauls statement about praying with the Spirit?

1 Cor 14:14-15, "For if I pray in an unknown tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also."

In plain English he contrasts praying and singing in an unknown tongue with singing and praying with the understanding.

Remember! We have power over all the power of the enemy through Jesus Name. Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the World. Stand in the authority God has given us through Jesus and fight the good fight of faith,then it matters not who hears our prayers for we are more than conquers by the Name of the Lamb who was slain,Jesus. We must always be soldiers,good warriors of the faith standing strong by the power of God and testimony of Christ.

not if you pray in tongues like Rev. Herb Pray at all times in the Spirit. This is different from praying in tongues, but if we pray in the Spirit, the devil can't understand us, only the Holy Spirit can, amen?

The Bible doesn't tell us NOT to share our problems with others. It DOES say to bear one anothers burdens. How do we do this for someone who HAS no burdens, no pain, no struggle, no trials (because they are unable to verbalize any problem)?

I'm glad the devil hears my prayers he also hears the authority that comes though them to defeat him in the name of Jesus.
---Exzucuh on 6/5/06

Pharisee has a good point. Wasn't it Daniel who prayed for 21 days and the Angel of the Lord said, "I heard your prayer from the first time you prayed, but I was fighting the King of Persia." So evil spirits do hear our prayers, but who cares? God is GREATER and the devil is already defeated by the death and resurrection of Jesus.
---Donna9759 on 6/5/06

If one prays out loud then yes, Satan can hear when we pray. But if we pray silently then no, Satan can't read our minds. Satan knows our fears, because he is the one who puts the fear there. Except the fear of God and God does that. Everyone is going to worry at some point for different reasons that is normal. And yes Satan is going to use our fears, our worries and have a hay day with them against us. That is when we need to be bold and tell Satan exactly how it is and how it is going to be.

I don't care if he does hear prayers, God has twice as many Angels that we know of and infinately more power, so that even alone I am more a majority than all Hell and it's recent converts combined.

See Romans 8
---Pharisee on 6/4/06

I asked this because I briefly attended a church where they stated that we should never discuss our illnesses. We should always speak as if we feel really well, even when we don't. If we are afraid of anything we should only mention it in silent prayer but not talk about it openly to anyone else etc. I left after 4 weeks as I felt that this was wrong. It was several years ago and the church has now closed down. The pastor died young, from a heart condition that he wouldn't really accept that he had.

Helen mentions a powerful way of praying. If you will by faith cover your prayers with the perfect precious blood of the Lord Jesus Christ you will enjoy a great freedom of expression minus fear in your prayers.

Another thing I would say is that when someone tells you something like that ask them to show it to you in the Word. We should share our cares with other christians who know how to pray. Some pray out of emotions or opposite to the word. For instance, if you were in need of finances I definitely wouldn't pray with someone who says " God made you poor". It opposes the word.[2Corinthians 8:9]

I say he can't because he can't be everywhere at the sametime. He's not omnipresent like God. Besides that the bible says he goes to and fro LIKE a roaring lion; he was defeated over 2000yrs. ago so we as believers have more authority than we think. Read Isaiah 54:17.

I would rather let the devil hear my prayers to God, than not pray to God. God says we are to pray. The devil can't do anything to us unless God allows it. Sometimes we allow Satan to do thing to us because we let him, instead of telling him go get behind us.
---Rev_Herb on 6/4/06

1 Corinthians 12:26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
James 5:16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
Galatians 6:2 Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
In order to bear another's burden, the burden must be shared.
---Bruce5656 on 6/4/06

That is deifying the devil. If I want the Lord to heal me for example, then I need to tell Him out loud what is wrong with me. And then out loud boldly tell the devil exactly where to go and where he is headed for and that the Blood of Jesus is against him.
