The times we're living in are very difficult times that require a new level of prayer and authority. What are the basics of exercising authority? Your position in Christ. Your position in Christ is who you are in God, and who God is in you. Your position is as a son/daughter, as a believer, priest, witness, and citizen of the Kingdom of God. If you believe you are a son/daughter of God, then authority is for you! The first rule of authority is: Never give up your position in Christ.
