Understand this: spirits veil themselves in other spirits.
In other words, the spirit at the root will hide itself with the presence of a lesser spirit so that your prayers never reach the root of the problem.
“Spiritual masking” is a highly effective strategy which the enemy uses to keep the “ruling spirit” in a place of power in the lives of the people.
If the people continue praying against the “superficial spirit” they will never uproot what is really responsible for the actual problem.
For example, this is why you can be frustrated with a person’s alcoholism when the real issue is their feeling of worthlessness. So you will pray against alcoholism, when the “ruling spirit” of worthlessness is really hiding behind addiction.
When you pray, ask YAH to give you the name, strategy, and identifying markers of the “ruling spirit” operating in a person’s life and by capsizing the “ruling spirit” in prayer, the “superficial spirits” become collateral damage and the person is set free.
Be vigilant in prayer through the power of The Holy Spirit operating in you. The name of YESHUA / JESUS is still the name that is above every name.
