    What on earth is "spiritual mapping", it sounds like a branch of the Ordnance Survey (UK map makers)! What scripture does this take flight from? Who is its major proponent?

    I am studying Daniel at the moment - Daniel 10 - and can't help feeling this is the/a tenuous link to the practice.

    Apologies to anyone that thinks this should be in a different forum.

    It is "Strategic level spiritual warfare" and another missiological fad. Another Peter Wagner and Neil Anderson-ish take on spiritual realities.

    Spiritual mapping posits that there are 'territorial spirits" and by our prayers against these entities and reclaiming these territories under the control of these spirits we can help the evangelization of an area.

    The advocates of this view use Daniel as a proof text. Also, some charismatic missionaries have interviewed demons to try to ascertain which demons arere in control of what region (assuming that demons are reliable interviewees). Also, some short-term misssion groups have arranged "prayer walking" to surround a town with prayer to deliver it from local demons.
