Prayer – 2024 Declaration from the Book of Ephesians – Ps John Bendixen

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord, Jesus Christ,

Who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
which He brought about in Christ when He raised Him from the dead,
and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places,

and raised us up with Him,

seated us with Him in heavenly places in Christ Jesus,
so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known
through the Church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places.

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood

but against the rulers,
against the powers,
against the authorities,
against the world forces of this darkness,

and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
