The picture reveals a person praying under a mixture of dark and lighted skies. The dark and grey skies represent attacks from the devil. The lighted skies represent the divine strenght, the strenght of God. There's a battle between spirits.
The person in the middle is a christian, praying and demonstrating her faith in God. The dark hands are demons attacking the christian lady. The fire and the light coming from the chirstian is shows the power of God destroying the demons who are trying to attack the christian lady.
The presence of dark around the woman represents the dark situation in which she was. So, the demons were trying to push her even deeper. Through her faith in God and her prayer, the light and fire appeared to destroy the work of demons.
This image also shows how the lady is very calm because she believes in the power of God in her life. She prays without fear and doubt because she knows that she's under the protection of the Almighty.
The picture encourages us to believe in God knowing that he will always defend us agaisnt all attacks from the devil.
The image was inspired from the book of Ephesians. It shows how the christian is not involved in a physical battle but a spiritual one because demons can't be seen with physical eyes but spiritual eyes. That's why this woman has taken the shield of faith in God asking his help in her dark moments. And because she believes in God, she is calm and trust him to fully protect her.
Everyday we face difficult moments in our lives, but God promised us that even in the valley of death he will be with us. So we have to take with us the shield of faith and believe firmly that what God has promised, he will accomplish it.
