We are told:
“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” (Ezekiel 22:30, NKJV).
Stand in the gap! Intercede for your lost loved ones. Claim your covenant provisions as you stand in faith on behalf of your lost loved ones. In intercession, your prayer no longer remains a request. It becomes a raging battle for the soul of each of your loved ones!
Key # 3: Take authority as a believer and challenge the devil for the souls of your loved ones.
Today, refuse fear and embrace boldness. Attack the enemy and engage in spiritual warfare!
We have authority over the enemy who is controlling and binding the lives of our loved ones. It is time we declare the promises “by force” (Matthew 11:12). Scripture promises: “Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (James 4:7).
It’s time for the devil to flee from your loved ones! It is time that you resist the enemy with the Word of God. Because the Lord tells us to resist the devil, we must resist him. We must resist him now on behalf of our loved ones, the ones who are struggling under his controlling influence.
Most of us begin praying for our lost family members as soon as we become Christians. After all, the salvation of each loved one is one of the dearest things to any person’s heart. However, we often fail to understand God’s guarantees, the power of intercession, and the authority our Lord has given to us.
