Pray that all the saints would heed the sober warning that we must submit ourselves to God’s authority in our daily living and practical matters if we are to pray with authority (Matt. 8:8-9; Acts 19:15).
Matt 8:8-9—But the centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not fit for You to enter under my roof; but only speak a word, and my servant will be healed.
