prayer / Intercession / warfare
Intercession is covenanting with God by taking God's provisions for atonement that was accomplished on Calvary and establishing them on behalf of a person, family, community, church, city, state, or nation. All intercession must be done from the perspective of truth. Satan only acknowledges and respects truth based on God's Word. The truth of the matter is all humanity and the world has already been reconciled back to God. II Corinthians 5:18-19: But all things are from God, Who through Jesus Christ reconciled us to Himself received us into favor, brought us into harmony with Himself and gave to us the ministry of reconciliation that by word and deed we might aim to bring others into harmony with Him. 19: It was God personally present in Christ, reconciling and restoring the world to favor with Himself, not counting up and holding against men their trespasses but cancelling them, and committing to us the message of reconciliation of the restoration to favor. So it is the Church responsibility to intercede and evangelize establishing Christ; our atonement; for destruction not to take place.
