“Our God is not afraid of anything; nor is He upset or provoked by anything. He is a God of war and He laughs in the face of His enemy, because God knows who He is in Himself. He has total knowledge of His own identity. He is wanting to put all the qualities and characteristics of His own warring nature into the church.” Graham Cooke
God is looking throughout the earth, and He sees those who are steadfast in authoritative prayer. Is your spirit steadfast even during times of intense spiritual warfare? Do you know how to stand steady in prayer in hard times even when the enemy targets you with lies? Are you standing your ground in your thought life, and are you bringing your thoughts captive to Christ?
The battles we are facing corporately in God’s Church are on a cosmic level. God is calling for a steadfast spirit in warfare. This cosmic battle can only be won on our knees through prayer and fasting. Many wonder why are all of these things are happening in the world. The battle we are facing is against the powers of darkness. It’s light against darkness. It’s truth against error. We can’t believe everything we hear in the media. We must be very discerning. We must see behind what is happening in the natural.
When we persevere in steadfast authority, it is purposeful. God is entrusting us for greater things. We are building God’s Kingdom and we cannot build without steadfastness during times of war. We need to violently stand on God’s promises. We need to passionately pray God’s will and stand strong in prayer against the powers of darkness. We need to believe God steadfastly for breakthrough and not give up. He is not upset by anything that is happening around us.
This is an 4-minute prayer and training that will help you to stand in steadfast authority in prayer. It is called: A Prayer for Steadfast Authority.
“And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast” (1 Peter 5:10).
