The Prayer of Authority is a mighty and highly effective weapon against evil strategies and demonic interference. It’s so beneficial and it’s important enough that we should use at the beginning of each day.

A Warning

Saint CeciliaHowever, before you begin the Prayer of Authority, meditate first on Jesus Christ and who he is to you and what he has done for you. Reflect especially on his role as the Victor King who took your sins and the sins of the whole world to the cross, conquering all the forces of evil with his death and resurrection. Bring to mind how much he cares about you and all those for whom you’re praying. Thank him. 

Doing this unites us to Jesus and his power over evil. Without taking this first step before entering the battlefield with our prayers, we unwittingly place ourselves in danger. 

Take note, this is extremely important: If we treat the Prayer of Authority like a magic formula, reciting the words without being fully immersed in their meaning and Who it is that conquers evil, we attract demons to us rather than drive them away. Life actually gets worse, because demons want us to lose belief in the power of this prayer. They want us to lose faith in the power of Jesus and stop us from using this prayer effectively.

The most important part of the Prayer of Authority is what we do in prayer before we say the first word of it.

When you’re ready, pray the Prayer of Authority with the authority given to you by God the Father, in the name of Jesus Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. Don’t recite it. Pray it and win victories with Christ!
