Message summary & scripture references

Searching through the Bible you’ll find a vast difference between praying to God over a situation and using your God-given authority in a situation. This difference is important because if you pray when need to use your authority, then you won’t receive what you desire out of the situation. In today’s podcast, learn when to pray to God vs using your authority as a believer.
