This is a mighty key that God has been restoring to the church in the last 20 years. Prayer has always been the focal point of God's delegated authority to humanity from the beginning of creation. Throughout church history there have been pivotal times when God had highlighted the importance of returning to prayer. The last 20 plus years or so we have seen the Holy Spirit restore once again this kingdom foundational truth to the Body of Christ. Intercession is the means by which God governs the entire universe. He has chosen to humble Himself and partner alongside of redeemed humanity in order for His will to be established and enforced upon the earth. The word of faith which the believer speaks fourth and confesses is meant to be decreed and directed against the powers of darkness that the agenda of heaven maybe established on the earth. Our God given delegated authority was not meant to be used to selfishly proclaim bigger houses and nicer cars but rather for agreement by saying; "Thy kingdom come, That I will be done on earth as it is in heaven."
“And the Lord said, ‘’Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing, since Abraham shall surely become a great and mighty nation, and all the nations of the earth shall be blessed in him? For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.’ And the Lord said, ‘Because the outcry against Sodom and Gomorrah is great, and because their sin is very grave, I will go down now and see whether they have done altogether according to the outcry against it that has come to Me; and if not, I will know.’ Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord. And Abraham came near and said, ‘Would You also destroy the righteous with the wicked? Suppose there were fifty righteous within the city; would You also destroy the place and not spare it for the fifty righteous that were in it? Far be it from You to do such a thing as this, to slay the righteous with the wicked, so that the righteous should be as the wicked; far be it from You! Shall not the Judge of all the earth do right?’ So the Lord said, ‘If I find in Sodom fifty righteous within the city, then I will spare all the place for their sakes.’” Genesis 18:17-26
“The people of the land have used oppressions, committed robbery, and mistreated the poor and needy; and they wrongfully oppress the stranger. So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one. Therefore I have poured out My indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of My wrath; and I have recompensed their deeds on their own heads,” says the Lord GOD.” Ezekial 22:29-31
