Examining Biblical Scripture

Prayer: Our Source of Power and Authority


We have a power and authority we do not fully recognise: Prayer

We must learn to meditate much more, to pray in authority: not my will but thine; what is Your will?

Isaiah 11:9b states

“For the earth shall be full of the knowledge of the LORD

As the waters cover the sea.”

And Psalm 29:1-2 says

“Give unto the LORD, O you mighty ones,

Give unto the LORD glory and strength.
Give unto the LORD the glory due to His name;
Worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.”

And Psalm 29 repeatedly mentions the power of “the voice of the LORD” which, when we pray, we activate.

We have authority given by GOD to move mountains

We need the knowledge of the LORD and the willingness for His will. Then the earth and everything in it will bow down.

This is NOT a prosperity Gospel, because GOD does not seek our prosperity for ourselves.

This is NOT a name it and claim it Gospel, because that presumes the knowledge of the LORD is for us.

This is a Gospel of Love, Hope, Victory and Blessing. The LORD seeks to bless and we are to be available to hear His desire and His blessing and then to proclaim it.

In Isaiah 11, the prophet speaks of the coming Messiah, and the peace that he will bring.

In Psalm 29, the psalmist writes of worship from us, and that we give to Him all the glory due to Him. When we do this, great things occur.

We have a powerful weapon against all unrighteousness in the world

That weapon is Prayer.

We have a powerful tool to procure God’s will be done on Earth as in Heaven. That weapon is Prayer.

We have all that is necessary to change this world from darkness to light. That weapon is Prayer.

For the weapon of our warfare is the armour of GOD; not tools in which to fight, but armour to protect us against the battle.

How to Pray

“Put on the whole armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:11-12)

Let us learn to pray, to make a difference in this world. Let us pray to bring Heaven to Earth. Let us pray as Jesus prayed, to that GOD’s will IS DONE on Earth as it is in Heaven.

Hallelujah and Amen.
