“You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, to spend it on your passions. JAMES 4:3. This is not some kind of magical thinking. Speaking scriptures out over our situations is not like something out of the Harry Potter series.
We are not manipulating people, atmospheres, or events to get what we want; we are speaking out God’s will over them, and His laws and promises to enforce that will.
Once again intercession is not manipulation; it is turning on the light so those stumbling in the dark can finally find their ways to the door for themselves.
Remember, Esther didn’t just petition that the Jews would be saved—she requested they be armed and equipped to fend for themselves.” -Enoch Elliott
