Day 55: Praying the prayer of authority—Praying downward
Pray that all the saints, as the church, would learn to pray the prayers of authority, the downward prayers that begin from a heavenly position of victory and go from heaven to earth, standing in the position that Christ has given us in the heavenlies, commanding Satan with authority, rejecting all his works, and proclaiming with authority that all God’s commands should be accomplished (Eph. 6:18-19a; Isa. 45:11).
Eph. 6:18-19a—By means of all prayer and petition, praying at every time in spirit and watching unto this in all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints, and for me.
Isa. 45:11—Thus says Jehovah, the Holy One of Israel and the One who formed him, Ask Me about the things to come concerning My sons, and concerning the work of My hands, command Me.
