Imagine trying to cut down a tree. And I’m not referring to one of those small (young) trees. But one that has been around for 20 or 30 years. Do you think you are going to cut down this tree using a chainsaw all in one go? From my understanding when you want to cut down a large tree, you start a few inches from the trunk of the tree and begin to cut away. You won’t get the tree to fall right away. Depending on the height and diameter of a particular tree, it might take you a few days to cut it down by yourself. You want the tree to fall so every day you will get up and cut, right?
You’re probably wondering where is she going with this right? Well, your prayer is like a tree. Your situation is like the age of the tree. The tree represents whatever problem or situation you’re facing today. Unless you wake up every day and night using your chainsaw (prayer) to pray for the situation you’re facing. The situation will not change. Your problem is as stubborn as the trunk of the tree. Especially when it’s a generational problem. You have to keep cutting away until it falls. Well, how do I know if my prayer is working? Prayer is spiritual. You pray in the natural, God and His angels do the fighting for you in the spiritual. You can’t see it, but you MUST believe He is fighting on your behalf. If you believe and trust in God then your prayer is working; it’s just a matter of time before you see it manifest in the physical. This is the confidence you should have in God and in your prayer. Prayer changes things. It’s by FAITH you pray. If you don’t believe in the one you are praying to, how will it work?
“For assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
Here is a prayer for whatever mountain you might be facing today. I want you to call out your mountain by its name. Don’t be afraid to speak back to your problem. Why would God say speak to the mountain? Why would Jesus curse the fig tree? If these things did not have names or could not hear. Why would He tell us to speak to them? He is referring to our problems and situations we face in life. If He did not give us the power and authority to speak to them why would He command us to speak to these things? Speak back to every problem in the name of Jesus and watch them leave your life. The Word of God says, “that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth,“Philippians 2:10.
Are you saying your problems and challenges do not fall into those categories? Yes, it does, and at the name of Jesus everyone one of the problems you are facing will fall in the name of Jesus. So by faith, as you pray this prayer, by faith call them out by their names. And believe they are leaving your life. Your faith activates the word of God.
You are God, and there is no other God besides you. Thank you for all you have done for me thus far. I know you are working everything out for my good. Lord, thank you for keeping me in the midst of this situation. I don’t know where I would be today if it weren’t for you. You have brought me this far, and I believe you have the power to change my situation. I know my situation is not bigger than you. You said in your word, if I have faith as a mustard seed, I can say this mountain, ‘move from here,‘ and it will move.
Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I speak to every mountain standing before me today (you can call them by name). I command them to move from my life. I cancel every plot of the enemy against my life to keep me in bondage. You said, “whom the Son has set free is FREE indeed” (John 8:36). Therefore, I am free from each and everything causing delays in my life. I loose it in the name of Jesus. You said whatever I bind on earth is bound in Heaven and whatever I loose on earth is loosed in Heaven (Matthew 18:18). I loose every blessing you have released for me. Lord, whatever the enemy is using to come against me, you said in your word (Romans 8:31) if you be for me who can be against me?
Lord, I take authority over the plans of the enemy in my life. I bring it nothing. It has no power or authority in my life. You have given me dominion over every living creature on this earth (Genesis 1:28). I take control of this situation, and I declare I’m free from the works of darkness. I’m free from this situation, and I will see tangible evidence of my prayer in Jesus name.
