Praying With Authority
In every conflict, someone emerges in control. What we fail to understand is that God’s Children go into every conflict already in control.
The problem is that we almost immediately surrender control to the enemy. Why?
Because we do not understand Authority in Christ.
When we pray, two things must be present. It must be In the Spirit,(by this I mean the Holy Spirit), and it must be with Authority.
The following is from the booklet “God’s Creative Power” by Charles Capp.
“ The Lord spoke to him in 1973 with these words;
If My People would believe my Word, long prayers would not be necessary. Just speak and the Word will bring it to pass.
For Prayer to be effective, My People must speak My Word by Faith.
They must rise up and have dominion over the power of evil by Speaking The Word.
My Word has not lost its Power, My people have lost their ability to speak it with Power and Authority.
No Word of Mine is ever void of Power, it is only hindered when it is not Spoken.”
The Authority Is In Jesus:
Matthew 7:28 And it came to pass, when Jesus had ended these sayings, the people were astonished at his doctrine: (things He spoke)
Matthew 7:29 For he taught them as one having authority, …
Mark 1:27 And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this? what new doctrine is this? for with authorityHe commands even the unclean spirits, and they do obey him.
Jesus Gives Us Access To That Authority:
Luke 9:1 Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases.
Mark 13:34 For the Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work…
Today We Pray With Authority Over Our:
Thoughts, our Actions, Every Sickness and every Conflict.
Lord we cast down every imagination and everything that exalts itself against You and Your Word. We also bring every thought into captivity in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Lord, we claim Your Holy Benefits that forgives us of our sins, and heals us of all our diseases. You have redeemed our lives from ruin.
Teach us oh Lord to speak from our hearts wellness and peace.
May pleasant Words be the medicine that brings health to our bones. In Jesus Name there is Healing, there is Victory and there is Authority. Amen
