Carrying a baby for more than nine months is not considered normal as it goes against God’s design. However, in the current age, evil forces are at work and there will likely be a rise in witchcraft and other forms of evil. It is important for believers to take action and engage in spiritual warfare to protect humanity from the harmful effects of these attacks. Such manipulative attacks by witches and wizards have been present since the beginning of Christianity.
“But there was a certain man, called Simon, which beforetime in the same city used sorcery, and bewitched the people of Samaria, giving out that himself was some great one”(Acts 8:9).

Many people, cities and nations have been bewitched already. So many destinies and marriages are under heavy witchcraft attacks. Many wombs have been bewitched through false prophecies, eating of food under the influence of witches and wizards. It is not surprising that many pregnant women are under the arrest of witchcraft powers.
Few years ago, when I was a pastor in one village that devil bewitched. When I saw how the village was given into idolatry and witchcrafts wholly, my spirit was stirred up. I declared for prayers and fasting against the throne of darkness in that village. My wife was pregnant at that time. In one of her outings, one terrible and a fearless wizard, who was also the native doctor, encountered her. The man threatened her and said, “Let me know if you would deliver your baby successfully or you would vomit it.”
At that time, I was not informed well about witchcraft powers and their activities, as I am today. However, as we continued in our prayer and fasting program, my wife fell down on one of the village market days. That was how her problem started. So many mysterious things began to happen in her pregnancy. I did not see them as spiritual problems then and I did not even pray against them.
Then on the ninth month of her pregnancy, there was no sign of labor. The babies in her womb came under heavy witchcraft attacks. However, we continued praying and most of our prayers were in tongues. I knew that the most important person we needed was the Spirit of God. As the Scripture puts it:
“Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God”(Romans 8:26-27).
According to scripture, once we have prayed all that we can in our known language, the Holy Spirit takes over and speaks through us in unknown tongues. During times when we are helpless, the Spirit intercedes for us and prays according to God’s will. Speaking in tongues can also dismantle obstacles created by evil forces. As a result of our faithful prayers and trust in God, my wife delivered twin boys at the end of the tenth month, which was a triumph over the devil. We give all the glory to God for this intervention through the Holy Spirit, and it confirms that our prayers were effective in defeating the witch doctor spiritually.
A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them”(Leviticus 20:27).
“There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch, Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer. For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee”(Deuteronomy 18: 10-12).
