Prayer is our way of communicating with God. It can be an earnest hope, a solemn request, or an expression of thanks that is directed to God. Prayer is a powerful tool and prayer changes things. Not only in the physical but in the spiritual as well.
There are certain words that when used correctly they can cause things to move in the spiritual realm. Words like declare and decree which means to announce and assert something with your legal authority. God has given us legal authority over satan, principalities and our flesh. So if you ever feel weak, attacked or oppressed, remember that you have power over anything that may try to come against you. But you have to have faith, believe and stand on the permission that God has given you.
Lets not forget that we can bind and loose things in the spirit as well. To bind means to break, block or cancel. And to loose means to accept, release or to manifest. These words are powerful when used in prayer. We have the power to uphold God's word for our lives and to tear down the attacks of the enemy against us.
That shows you how mighty we are. We can command what is going on in the invisible around us by just speaking it into the atmosphere. That should remind us all of exactly who we are to God and how much He loves us.
The only power the enemy has over us is the power we give him. He will try to trick us out our power with deception and lies. So, you cannot let him. Know who you are, stand on God's truth and you will not be susceptible to the enemies' lies.
Pray with the authority God has given you and watch things change around you.
