Late in 1997, for a period of 2-3 weeks, my 5 year old daughter, who usually enjoyed worship and prayer with us at home and church seemed to be irritable and disinterested when it was time for prayer. She seemed to be troubled when the prayer time approached and because of the trouble she created, the joy of worship was lost. We tried to pacify her in different ways but nothing seemed to work. If I scolded her, she immediately would cry and there would be more problems. We prayed to the Lord to restore peace during our worship and prayer. The problem persisted for quite a while and then the Lord showed me this dream one night.
Me, my wife and our daughter are walking together on a street, singing and praising the Lord joyfully. Suddenly, out of nowhere a herd of elephants rush at us and and our daughter is separated from us. The elephants chase our daughter and she flees from them.
One small elephant blocks her way as she cries and runs and this elephant frightens her and nudges and pushes her with its trunk. We cry aloud on seeing this, praying to the Lord fervently, because we are helpless and the herd is a big one. For a while we feel that our daughter will be destroyed by the elephants,but then a huge hand comes down from above and shields her from the herd, not even allowing the elephants to see her. We run to her and my wife picks her up and we are overjoyed that no harm had befallen her though the elephants had troubled her so much. The dream ended there.
This was obviously a satanic attack and we decided to fast and pray for our daughter's deliverance. Soon she was her old self again, praising and worshipping God with us and God restored peace as only He is able to.
The elephants represented a host of satanic powers out to disrupt our worship and prayer life. They did this by attacking our little child, but the mighty hand of God shielded her from harm and set her free. Praise God for his protection and deliverance.
