How we Stopped a Strip Club

Posted on 9 May, 2016 by David Stanfield

A strip club application denied, a corrupt development exposed and a massacre site redeemed. These are just some of the amazing testimonies told to me by a friend living here in Australia.

All of these stories have come after using banners in worship and warfare in his city. You, too, can have an incredible impact in your city!

Here are some of his stories:

Using banners in AustraliaWe have been meeting as a prayer group for many years in the centre of our city. Several years ago we prayed at the various gateways around our city.

This strategy helped us become a more cohesive group. However, when David visited our city and we attended his workshop, we experienced the power of banners in worship and warfare in a whole new way.

People in our group come from different churches in the city and we meet together each week. We often use banners when we pray, and some of us worship together with banners in our homes.

We believe the Lord has given us a watchman role over our city and through us He is drawing the churches together. He has encouraged us to be vigilant for our city, particularly against ungodly influences. We use banners in warfare. Below are some of the breakthroughs we have seen as we have worshipped and prayed with banners.

Strip Club Application Withdrawn.
Our city council received a development application for a strip club. A strip club is where striptease performances are given in front of an audience. This is often associated with other illicit sexual and drug-related activities. The venue for the application was operating as a brothel at the time.

In response to the application, we decided to walk, as a prayer group, across the front the proposed venue, praying for God’s will to be done here. Within a month the business had been sold and the strip club application had been withdrawn.

Corruption Exposed
A large and prominent block of land was the subject of discreet negotiations between our Council’s Mayor and General Manager and a foreign consortium. It was claimed that the development would bring an extra 30,000 jobs to the city! Spiritual alarm bells rang for us and as a group we felt the Lord wanted us to claim the land for him and expose secret dealings.

With banners flying, we walked around and across the block of land, reading Joshua 23:5-13 (about God driving nations out and taking possession of the land) and claiming the land for God’s purposes.

While we were doing it, a couple of people asked us what we were doing and expressed approval of our actions. Within a week, the foreign group was exposed as being corrupt and the development negotiations ceased.

Indigenous Massacre Site
Not far from our city is an island in the river where about 100 aboriginal men, women and children were massacred. The local aboriginal elders were happy for us to pray in the area but declined to join us.

We met in a quiet spot adjacent to the island and prayed with banners. This was particularly powerful time for our group and many of us received visions and words of knowledge. We now call the area Redemption Island. We believe that, in part due to our intercession and prophetic actions, the spiritual tone of the nearby town has improved noticeably.

Banners in the Bible

John 12:30-32
Jesus said, 'This voice was for your benefit, not Mine. Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. But I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself'.

Isaiah 13:1-4
An oracle concerning Babylon that Isaiah son of Amoz saw: Raise a banner on a bare hilltop, shout to them; beckon to them to enter the gates of the nobles. I have commanded my holy ones; I have summoned my warriors to carry out my wrath- those who rejoice in my triumph. Listen, a noise on the mountains, like that of a great multitude! Listen, an uproar among the kingdoms, like nations massing together! The LORD Almighty is mustering an army for war.

Jeremiah 50:2
Announce and proclaim among the nations, lift up a banner and proclaim it; keep nothing back, but say, Babylon will be captured; Bel will be put to shame, Marduk filled with terror, her images will be put to shame and her idols filled with terror.
