18 And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. 19 “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 “teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” Amen.
For anybody who is saved, and questions their purpose, they need to look no further. We have eternity promised to us, an eternal relationship in Heaven. Jesus in Matthew does not give us the option, but gives us the command, to reach the nations. In verse 18, Jesus declares all authority or power is given me. The Greek word here is Exousia, meaning power of choice, liberty of doing as one pleases. The whole universe is under the authority of Jesus, we go forward as His ambassadors in a lost world.
However, we just don’t go forward, we go forward in His power and authority. Before Christ departed he specifically told His disciples to remain in Jerusalem, until they received power or Dunamis from heaven, literally Holy Spirit dynamite. This power comes from the Holy Spirit, giving us the ability to accomplish the impossible.
8 “But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.”
When we are under the power and influence of the Sprit, we have the access to the authority of Christ, we go forward with His authority and Power. We have to remember, its not about us, we are operating under the authority and power of Christ. We represent the authority of Heaven on this earth, representing the king of the universe. We have the Holy Spirit as our guarantee, proving our pedigree to earthly powers.

We bind up any assignments, unethical prayers, and thoughts the enemy has plotted and schemed against these men and women of valor. We bind up distraction and confusion in the heavens and in the earth that hinder them from their work and assignments. Anyone one that has been planted in the ministries, with satanic works, intentions, or evil deeds, to hinder the progress of your ministry, we ask you Father by your power and might deliver them from the satanic powers that would be or remove them from the ministries now in the name of Jesus.

Allow the anointing to flow in the services freely from mans interruption that your Glory may reign changing lives and experiences as well as saving souls.
Give these leaders appointed by you the ability to prove faithful with the things you have entrusted to them through the power of unconditional love and compassion flowing through them at all times. Continuously teach and lead them in your ways so that they will always remember your will for their lives and the vision for the Kingdom in, which they were called. Allow your mercy and grace to continue to empower them and bless them in all they put their minds and hands to do. Keep them open and receptive to your word, set a watch over them and their families that the angels will walk with them guarding them at all times, that no hurt, harm, nor danger will befall them. Fortify them continuously just as the trees planted by the river of water are nourished. We thank you that these men and women of God are more than conquerors through Christ Jesus and they’re blessed in the city coming and going. And for their deligient service to you and your sheep, Lord no good thing shall be with held from them. These mighty mighty men and women of valor are blessed in the city and blessed in the field, everything that they think of is blessed!!! Lord open the windows of heaven and bless them all!! In Jesus Name! Amen!
