Prayer for the saints to learn to exercise the Lord’s authority to bind the strong man, Satan
Pray that the saints would learn to exercise the authority of the headship and lordship of Christ, the Head, in praying to bind the strong man and in preaching the gospel to plunder sinners out of the kingdom of Satan into the kingdom of God (Luke 4:36; 9:1-2; Matt. 28:18-19).
Luke 4:36—And amazement came upon all, and they spoke to one another, saying, What is this word? For with authority and power He orders the unclean spirits, and they come out.
Luke 9:1-2—And He called together the twelve and gave them power and authority over all the demons and to heal diseases. And He sent them to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal the sick.
Matt. 28:18-19—And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and disciple all the nations, baptizing them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
