Are There (Literal) Demonic Spirits in Our Halls of Congress?

(Pixabay/deoniszaharov)
As reported by Charisma News, during his opening prayer last Thursday morning, "Rev. Pat Conroy, chaplain for the U.S. House of Representatives, cast out "spirits of darkness" from Congress." But are there literal "spirits of darkness" that need to be driven out from the chambers of Congress? Of course!

There are demonic spirits all over the world, especially in places of influence and power. Why wouldn't they be active in our halls of Congress? As pointed out by Rep. Steven Smith, R- Georgia, in a tweet to President Trump, "There are a lot of evil spirits in this world, sir."

The Charisma article notes that Rev. Conroy began his prayer by stating that, "This has been a difficult and contentious week in which darker spirits seem to have been at play in the people's house." Conroy then proceeded to "cast out all spirits of darkness from this chamber, spirits not from You."

He continued, "I cast out the spirit of discouragement, which deadens the hope of those who are of good will. I cast out the spirit of petty divisiveness, which clouds the sense and the desire to be of fruitful productivity in addressing the issues more appropriately before this House. I cast out any sadness brought on by the frustration of dealing with matters detrimental to the honorable work each member has been called to engage in."

He also prayed for an environment of unity "so that any spirit of darkness might have no place in our midst."

Now, I can't comment on which demonic spirits are or are not at work in Congress, nor can I comment on whether Rev. Conroy's prayer was effective. read more
