If you believe the movement of the rods was demonic, who were you praying
I answered that in my original post: When I felt them move I was
startled and prayed in my mind, "God, I don't know what's going on here,
but if this is not from you please take it away."
As to why demons might be interested in displaying this type of power, I
think it tends to take our focus away from God. The closest parallel I
can think of from scripture is Simon the Sorcerer in Acts 8:9-24. "They
followed him because he had amazed them for a long time with his magic."
There is also the slave girl who predicted the future (Acts 15:4). "She
earned a great deal of money for her owners by fortune-telling....Finally
Paul became so troubled that he turned around and said to the spirit, 'In
the name of Jesus Christ I command you to come out of her!' At that
moment the spirit left her."
