Prayer Summary for September 26


The following excerpt is taken from The Authority of the Believer by John A. MacMillan:


Do we believe that God “hath quickened us together with Christ and hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus” (Ephesians 2:5-6)? If we do, our reaction to it will be a fervent, “Lord, I accept Thy gracious word. I believe that Thou hast thus wrought for me. In humble faith, I do now take my seat in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus at Thy right hand. Teach me how to fulfill this sacred ministry, how to exercise the authority which Thou hast entrusted to me. Train me day by day that I may attain to the full stature of the perfect man in Christ, so that in me Thy purpose of the ages may be fulfilled. Amen.”


When mountain walls confront the way.
Why sit and weep? Arise and say
“Be thou removed!” and they shall be
By the power of God cast in the sea.

All power on earth, all power in heaven,
To Christ, the Son of God, is given;
And from the throne He will endue,
And hindrances will flee from you.

O’er all the power of fiend and man
Say through the Lord, “I surely can”;
Take from Him power on earth to tread
On serpent’s sting, on dragon’s head.

Whate’er thou art, O mountain high,
Where’er thou art, in earth or sky,
Whene’er thou art, truth is the same,
“Be thou removed, in Jesus’ name.”

“Be thou removed!” Faith bids thee start
For yonder see—arise! depart!
I may, I can, I must, I will,
The purpose of my God fulfill.

The Soldier of the Cross

Now glorified and seated at the Father’s right hand, “far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion,” Jesus as Lord of all is beyond reach of Satan’s attacks. The finished work of Calvary is now completely unassailable. Nothing that Satan may do can change the finality of the victory stroke that crushed his head.

However, the implication of that victory over the powers of evil and its application in the world of men is now in the hands of the church on earth. Consequently, the bitter enmity of Satan is now directed against the church in order to vent his spleen against the head through the members of his body. In his true character as adversary, Satan is very much alive to rob the finished work of Christ of its full effect among men. His fiery darts zero in on the members of Christ’s body who have not learned to take their position in the heavenly places with Christ by faith and who face life without taking to themselves by prayer the whole armor of God. He is especially concerned about those who are proclaiming the Good News of the finished work of Christ in earth’s dark corners.

Because of the hostility of the devil, the work of conforming the members of Christ’s body to the likeness of the soldier-image of the head is high on the priority list of the Holy Spirit. As believers we are in Christ and he is us, and this means that his aggression against Satan must be expressed through us. So we are no longer free to play the role of civilians, living as if there were no war.

Our soldier role is pictured for us throughout the Old Testament and is now established by our union with our conquering head and affirmed in the New Testament. The history of the saints in every age is one of conflict. The pathway the disciple treads as he follows his Lord is one of certain warfare.

At this point let us ask ourselves some serious questions:

Am I expressing the enmity God put between the devil and the church’s head?

Or, am I seeking détente, coexistence, and peace through compromise?

Am I available to my Lord as a willing instrument, ready for his use in his warfare?

Am I aware of the teaching of Scripture about my part in the spiritual conflict?


Father, You have made it clear that we are to continually feed our spirits with Your Word
Your Word says that we are more than conquers, and we walk in victory, today!
We are seated with You in heavenly places, and from that seat we exercise our God given authority!
Give us eyes to see a greater revelation of Your love, and the truth of Your Word
I will do what You have called me to do, Father!
We command and demand our rights as believers!
Show us Your will and Your plan, that we would fulfill those things You have called us to
Yes, we will be on alert!
You have placed us in the kingdom for such a time as this!
We thank You that there is a renewing and a refining in the Church of the living God
Lifting up the spirit of prayer, individually and corporately
In corporate prayer, we will exercise our authority and dominion
We will pray prayers that will stay ahead of the game, prayers that unveil and get into those dark places
Prayer is coming to the forefront of the Church of the living God
Yes, Father, we will continue to be co-laborers with You in the work of prayer
We will be participators, actively speaking and pursing all of the will of God
Calling up spiritual leaders to lead us in that capacity!
Declaring for momentum and movement in the right direction, Lord
We will be going about the Master’s business this day!
In the name of Jesus, we declare that this nation is moving to the right
This nation is moving into righteousness and holiness!
We declare that more and more people of God will stand up and shine their light
Change must come; it must come from an internal change, a heartfelt conviction
Without God, we are doomed; but with You all things are possible!
We magnify and make much of the blood today!
Covering this nation with the precious blood of Jesus
Declaring that this blood is working and keeping the destroyer back this day
The blood of Jesus brings light and life to this nation!
We are one nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all!
Holding the blood of Jesus against the spirit of division
No, this nation will not be divided in the name of Jesus!
We call those evil plans of the enemy to nothing, to naught!
Calling those things down, we forbid you from operating
Cease and desist in your maneuvers in the name of Jesus!
Lifting up those in authority, grant them wisdom, and understanding
Ignite within them the truth of the authority that is given to them for Your purpose and for Your plan
No, do not let them back down or be cornered, Father
We hold up the debates before You today, Lord
Praying for insight, that You would grant insight and revelation to Your people
America be awakened!
Lifting these things before heaven, today!
Praying that every believer would take their place of authority in Christ Jesus
The truth shall come out, in Jesus’ name!
We call forth Your precious Holy Spirit and Your right way over the USA
Every lie be exposed for what it was and for what it was trying to do
Every hidden thing be uncovered in Jesus’ name!
Let Your light shine, over every state, over every city!
We will get ourselves in harmony with other believers!
United we will stand!
We will speak and declare those things to come in line in Jesus’ name!
Uncover and reveal those things, Lord
Pleading the blood of Jesus over the United States of America
Thank You for the blood, we watch with the eyes of faith
By Your Spirit, our eyes are being opened, Father
We break every pattern of the enemy in these days, that is attempting to derail this nation
Praying for those plans of the enemy to be blown apart in the name of Jesus!
No, they will not be rebuilt, but they are decimated by the blood of the Lamb
There is an arising, men and women of God, who are led by Your Spirit
We loose angels and ministering spirits to go and work on behalf of the Church of the living God
Father, we pray that Your will be done in this nation!


The following excerpt is taken from The Authority of the Believer by John A. MacMillan:

To meet the situation, the Church of Christ needs a new conception of prayer. The urgent call is for men and women, wholly yielded to the Lord, whose eyes have been enlightened to see the ministry in the heavenlies to which they have been called. Such believers, whether as intercessors, or as workers at home, or missionaries on the foreign fields, may in union with the great Head of the Body, exercise an authority to which the powers of the air must give place wherever challenged.
