 “Whatever you bind on Earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you lose on Earth will be loosed in heaven” (Matthew 18:18)
We can thank our Lord for including this amazing scripture in His Word for us. We all have needs and hopefully, we take those needs to our Father.
 God gives us authority on Earth. When we take that authority, God releases power to us from heaven. We must grasp hold of that power from Him. Because it’s God’s power and not ours, we become the vessel through which His power flows.
When we pray, we bring that power to bear upon everything we are praying about, and we allow the power of God to work through us, the powerless.
I can now see through my praying, how all my focus goes to my Father and remains in His control. I surrender my earthly control to Him, asking Him to help me fix my need. “God, I can’t do this alone, nor do I want to.”
When we pray, we are humbling ourselves before God and saying, “I need your presence and Your power, Lord. I can’t do this without You. “When we don’t pray, it’s like saying we have any need of anything outside of ourselves. Please think about what you are saying to God when you don’t relinquish fleshly control to heavenly Hands.
You have the ability through the Holy Spirit to bind on earth and lose on earth for a heavenly purpose.
