I had three more promptings to pray, “Hands off,” in the weeks that followed. On one occasion, I had a vision as I prayed and I actually saw hands falling off at the wrist. I quickly said, “Lord, I was not thinking so viciously. That’s not my fault!” However, the vision was not about any person being maimed, it was simply assurance that not only was the interference and harassment being stopped, but the ability to continue to interfere and harass was being cut off in that matter also. Thank you, Father.

(Kathy) Realizing interference was deliberately used as a weapon of delay and disappointment explained a parade of experiences from the past for me, but I am declaring that pattern will no longer parade through my life like a norm. I wanted to ask the Lord why He allows this type of cunning interference, but I suspect it might be sons rather than Father allowing such operations to continue. So, I rephrased my question, “Lord, what do we do about interference that contradicts us when we are at key thresholds?” The answer I heard was, “Pray this way, ‘HANDS OFF’”. That sounded strange to me and I wondered if I really could pray that way or if I had misunderstood. Then I found those exact words in The Message, Psa 105:14, “He permitted no one to abuse them. He told kings to keep their HANDS OFF!” So, I prayed confidently, “HANDS OFF!” That was a step of progress but the lesson was not over.
