Intercede Successfully in Prayer - LESSON 6
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore...(Matthew 28:18-20)
What did Jesus say he had been given?
This word power is exousia, meaning ________________.
According to these verses, what does Jesus’ power have rule over? (Philippians 2:8,9; Ephesians 1:20-23)
What is our position with Christ? (Ephesians 2:6-7)
Our confidence is not in our faith, but in the supremacy of Jesus Christ. Our faith is a tool used to activate the authority of Jesus’ kingdom over Satan’s kingdom on this earth.
Where was Peter’s faith directed? (Acts 3:6-10, 16; 4:10)
In reading Matthew 17:20, it explains that it’s not how much faith we put into action, but that we put into action what we have. Our confidence in prayer is not based on us, but on God’s will, His promises and Jesus’ authority. This week begin your intercessory prayers by reading Matthew 17:20, Matthew 28:18-20 and John 15:16 to be reminded of your role as God’s co-worker and that your commission is to pray and act in Jesus’ supreme authority and not your own.
