Bible verses about superstition
We all have heard about superstitions like Friday the 13th, knocking on wood, coming across a black cat, walking under a ladder, etc. To be superstitious is idolatry and it is trusting in things other than God. It is a slap in the face to Him showing that you don’t trust Him or believe in His Words.

10. 2 Kings 21:2-6 He did evil in the eyes of the LORD, following the detestable practices of the nations the LORD had driven out before the Israelites. He rebuilt the high places his father Hezekiah had destroyed; he also erected altars to Baal and made an Asherah pole, as Ahab king of Israel had done. He bowed down to all the starry hosts and worshiped them. He built altars in the temple of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, “In Jerusalem I will put my Name.” In the two courts of the temple of the LORD, he built altars to all the starry hosts. He sacrificed his own son in the fire, practiced divination, sought omens, and consulted mediums and spiritists. He did much evil in the eyes of the LORD, arousing his anger.

Superstitions can be innocent looking but some have been with people for years since childhood. I don’t know how to talk about it but I want to say it can seem like a path to coping with a lot of problems or even wanting things to work out.
It can start to get very powerful or hard to give up. Then it is a unchecked negative force in a person’s life.
I hope you will pray for many people that don’t understand the addiction or power of it.
