I READ: Matthew 6: 9-13
Jesus taught his disciples how to pray correctly. He taught them to pray the Lord ’s Prayer. In that prayer He gave them the steps to pray according to the Father’s will. In addition to giving praise and thanksgiving (verse 9 and 10), there is also prayer for request (verse 11), prayer of confession and intercession for others (verse 12), and a prayer to practice God’s power (verse 13). Jesus have taught us how we need to practice God’s power through prayer of war against the devil and prayer of declaration of God’s word and blessings. In Matthew 16:19, God has given us His power through the key of the Kingdom of Heaven. We need to use that power in order to bind the devil and to loosen/release the Word of God. Practice the power of God through our prayers so that we can break and destroy the work of the devil and to declare the word of God and His blessings.
I DECLARE: Matthew 16:19 – And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
I DO: What action will I take today after meditating on the Word of God?
I PRAY: Pray as guided by the Holy Spirit
