Authority in Christ

Friday, May 20, 2022

Let us pray that our authority over the enemy will be released. Remember your position and authority in Christ. You are God’s child, redeemed by the blood of His Son and destined to the throne. We are not pawns in this world’s power play.

We are rulers; in Christ we have been given authority over all the power of the enemy to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness (Matthew 10:1; Mark 16:17-18; Luke 10:19). Our God and Redeemer has made us more than conquerors. He has given us the power to lead a victorious life in all circumstances (Romans 8:37-39).

Satan is a usurper; he tries to deprive you of the authority that you have over him.

Prayer

Blessed are you, Lord God Almighty. Thank you for your trust in me and your generous provision. In myself I have no authority or power. I have no latitude.

Anything I have is from you and by your grace, O Lord God. In Christ, you have showered many blessings upon me. You have forgiven my sins. You have given me abundant life, and you fill me with the Holy Spirit. Thank you.

Help me use my authority in you. In the name of Jesus I rebuke the enemy. I tear down his strongholds and push back the forces of darkness.

I pray with authority in Jesus’ name that hearts of Muslims will be changed. This very week may many Muslims be reconciled to you. Deliver them from the snares of the enemy and build your Church, O God, among Muslims.

In the mighty name of Jesus I pray, amen.

Promise

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you (Luke 10:19, NIV).
