Summary: Knowing your right as a child of God.
Spiritual warfare prayer, as with all prayer, is empowered by our faith in Christ through the delegated authority which He gives to every believer through His shed Blood and His victory over Satan through His work of the cross on our behalf. Believers must understand their position in Christ, that they are joined to His Spirit (I Cor. 6:17) and are, therefore, one with Him (Romans 6).
The born-again, Spirit-filled believer, then, functions through His position in Christ. The believer must, therefore know who he or she is in Christ and the power that has been delegated to them by the Holy Spirit. Study the following scriptures on the Believer’s Authority :
Luke 10: 19
Matthew 11: 12
1 Cor. 6:17
Mark 11: 23-24
