Christians are under attack as never before. Now, those who believe in the biblical definition of marriage and just two genders created by God are being labelled as bigots and treated as such by governments, employers, and, schools.
Intercessors can change the atmosphere in their cities through prayer, worship, and a corporate spiritual authority far greater than any demonic threat or attack. The posture of our hearts and the words from our mouths determine the atmosphere in a place. The power of our praises and our prayers can shift atmospheres in a room, a building, a neighbourhood, and even an entire city.
We are still to see what God’s response will be to the prayers of the thousands of saints that gathered to pray in Washington just prior to the election.
In the early Church, unity was so strong that Scriptures speak of a “great grace” that was released in the city. This grace opened the door to miracles, signs, and wonders, and salvations on a daily basis (see Acts 4:32-34). Earlier in this same chapter, it speaks of their daily fellowship and breaking of bread. Because of these things, God’s grace empowered them to do far beyond what they could have done in the natural.
This should be our desire as we come together as watchmen in prayer over our cities and nation. We can pray in such agreement with heaven that the atmosphere over the city begins to be permeated with the grace and favour of the Lord. Our spiritual adversary will continually find ways to spread fear, chaos, turmoil, and hopelessness over the land. It is our responsibility to displace those demonic spirits by keeping our corporate prayer altars ablaze.
We must use our authority in Christ to displace rulers in high places and declare the work of the cross and the power of Christ’s resurrection. Let’s agree together to speak life instead of death, order instead of chaos, and faith instead of fear.
