Day 53: Prayer for our seeing the authority of the church as the Body
Pray that the saints would see the position and the authority of the church as the Body of Christ, realizing that the position of the church is exactly the same as that of Christ, and claim and utilize this authority to tread over all the power of the enemy (1 Cor. 12:27; Matt. 28:18b-19a; Luke 10:19).
1 Cor. 12:27—Now you are the Body of Christ, and members individually.
Matt. 28:18b–19a—All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and disciple all the nations…
Luke 10:19—Behold, I have given you the authority to tread upon serpents and scorpions and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
