第三週■週六


三 權柄的禱告就是馬可十一章二十至二十四節裏的禱告:

1 權柄的禱告,不是求神作甚麼,乃是用神的權柄,把神的權柄拿來對付難處,對付那該除去的事—23節,亞四7,太二一21。

2 權柄的禱告不是直接向神求,乃是直接用神的權柄來對付難處—出十四15 ~ 27。

四 權柄的禱告是與作得勝者極有關係的;每一個得勝者都必須學習對『這座山』說—可十一23:

1 神派定我們命令祂所已經命令的事,吩咐祂所已經吩咐的事—太十七20。

2 這種禱告不是對神說,乃是對『這座山』說。

3 得勝者最要緊的工作,就是把寶座上的權柄帶到地上來;我們若要作得勝者,就必須學會權柄的禱告,對山說話—啓十一15,十二10。

晨興餧養

可十一23 ~ 24『我實在告訴你們,無論誰對這座山說,你得挪開,投在海裏,他若心裏不疑惑,只信他所說的成了,就必給他成了。所以我告訴你們,凡你們禱告祈求的,無論是甚麼,只要信已經得着了,就必得着。』

   權柄的禱告… 就是馬可十一章裏的禱告。…二十四節的話…是與二十三節連起來的…,可見二十三節也是說到禱告的事。希奇的就是在這裏不像普通的禱告,這裏不是對神說,『神阿,求你把這座山挪開此地投在海裏。』…主不是叫我們對神說,乃是叫我們面向山,…直接對山說,『你得挪開,投在海裏。』主恐怕我們以爲這不是禱告,所以在二十四節就來解釋說,這也是禱告。…這就是權柄的禱告。權柄的禱告,不是求神作甚麼,乃是用神的權柄,把神的權柄拿來直接對付難處,直接對付那該除去的事。這種禱告,是每一個得勝者所必須學習的。每一個得勝者必須學會如何直接對山說話(倪柝聲文集第二輯第二册,二三○頁)。

信息選讀

   我們有許多輭弱的地方,像脾氣、污穢的思想,或者身體的病痛等等,如果去對神說,好像不容易見效,但你如果把神的權柄拿來,對山說話,它立刻就跑掉了。…山,就是那些攔阻你的,叫你的道路走不通的。…許多人當他在他的生命中、工作中遇見山的時候,都是去禱告神,求神挪開這座山。但神要對你說,你自己去對山說罷,只要你去吩咐山說,『你得挪開,投在海裏』,就彀了。…權柄的禱告是你要對那攔阻你的說,『離開我!』你要對你的脾氣說,『離開我!』你要對你的疾病說,『離開我!我要靠着主復活的生命仍然起來。』不是對神說,是直接對山說,『你得挪開,投在海裏。』這就是權柄的禱告。

   如果我們在神面前清楚知道了神的旨意是甚麼,一點不疑惑,大膽的對山說,『你得挪開,投在海裏,』事情必定成就。在這裏神派定我們作一個發命令的人,我們命令神所已經命令的事,我們吩咐神所已經吩咐的事,這就是權柄的禱告。權柄的禱告不是直接向神求,乃是直接用神的權柄來對付難處。

   權柄的禱告是與作得勝者有關係的。基督徒如果不知道這個,就不能作得勝者。我們要記得,坐在寶座上的是神,是我們的主耶穌,服在寶座下面的是仇敵。惟有禱告能轉動神的能力。神的能力沒有一個能彀轉動它,只有禱告。所以禱告是頂需要的。如果不禱告的話,就不能好好的作得勝者。知道甚麼是權柄的禱告,纔知道甚麼是禱告。得勝者最要緊的工作,就是把寶座上的權柄帶到地上來。今天只有一個寶座—神的寶座—是掌權的,是遠超過一切的。要有分於那權柄,就必須禱告;所以禱告是十分需要的。凡能動寶座的,就必定能動一切。我們必須看見基督升天是遠超過一切的,我們必須看見萬有都服在祂的腳下,因此我們可以用這寶座的權柄來管理一切,因此我們每一個都必須學會這權柄的禱告(倪柝聲文集第二輯第二册,二三○至二三三頁)。

WEEK 3 — DAY 6


C. Praying with authority is praying the prayer of Mark 11:20-24:

1. A prayer with authority does not ask God to do something; rather, it exercises God's authority and applies this authority to deal with problems and things that ought to be removed—v. 23; Zech. 4:7; Matt. 21:21.

2. A prayer with authority is not asking God directly; rather, it is dealing with problems by directly applying God's authority—Exo. 14:15-27.

D. Prayer with authority has much to do with the overcomers; every overcomer must learn to speak to “this mountain”—Mark 11:23:

1. God has commissioned us to command what He has commanded and give orders to what He has given orders to—Matt. 17:20.

2. This kind of prayer is directed not toward God but toward “this mountain.”

3. The most important work of the overcomers is to bring the authority of the throne to earth; if we want to be an overcomer, we must learn to pray with authority and speak to the mountain—Rev. 11:15; 12:10.

Morning Nourishment

Mark 11:23-24 Truly I say to you that whoever says to this mountain, Be taken up and cast into the sea, and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says happens, he will have it. For this reason I say to you, All things that you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and you will have them.

   Praying with authority… is praying the prayer of Mark 11… Verse 24 is joined to verse 23. Verse 24 mentions prayer. This proves that verse 23 must also concern prayer. The strange thing is that verse 23 does not sound like an ordinary prayer. The Lord did not tell us to pray, “God, please move the mountain and cast it into the sea.”… The Lord… did not tell us to speak to God; He told us to turn to the mountain and to speak to the mountain… directly…, telling it to be cast into the sea. Since the Lord was afraid that we would not consider this to be a prayer, He pointed out in the following verse that it is a prayer… This is a prayer with authority. A prayer with authority does not ask God to do something. Rather, it exercises God’s authority and applies this authority to deal with problems and things that ought to be removed. Every overcomer has to learn to pray this kind of prayer. Every overcomer has to learn to speak to the mountain. (CWWN, vol. 22, “The Prayer Ministry of the Church,” pp. 195-196)

Today's Reading

   We have many weaknesses, such as temper, evil thoughts, or physical illnesses. If we plead with God concerning these problems, it seems that there is not much result. However, if we apply God’s authority to the situation and speak to the mountain, these problems will go away… A mountain is something that blocks the way and stops us from going on… When many people encounter a mountain in their life or in their work, they pray to God to remove the mountain. But God tells us to speak to the mountain ourselves. All we have to do is issue a word of command to the mountain: “Be taken up and cast into the sea.”… A prayer with authority is one in which we tell the things that are frustrating us to go away. We can say to our temper, “Go away.” We can say to sickness, “Go away. I will rise up by the resurrection life of the Lord.” This word is not spoken to God but directly to the mountain. “Be taken up and cast into the sea.” This is a prayer with authority.

   If we have no doubts and are clear about God’s will, we can speak boldly to the mountain, “Be taken up and cast into the sea,” and the thing will be done. God has commissioned us to be those who issue the command. We command what God has commanded, and we give orders to what God has given orders to. This is a prayer with authority. A prayer with authority is not asking God directly. Rather, it is dealing with problems by directly applying God’s authority.

   Prayer with authority has much to do with the overcomers. If a Christian does not know this, he cannot be an overcomer. We have to remember that God and the Lord Jesus are on the throne, while the enemy is under the throne. Only prayer can activate the power of God. Nothing can activate God’s power except prayer. This is why prayer is indispensable. If one does not pray, he cannot be an overcomer. Only after one knows to pray with authority will he know what prayer is. The most important work of the overcomers is to bring the authority of the throne to earth. Today there is a throne, the throne of God. This throne is ruling, and it is far above everything. In order to have a share in this authority, one must pray. Hence, prayer is very necessary. Those who can move the throne can move everything. We must see that Christ’s ascension has made Him far above all things, and we must see that all things are under His feet. For this reason, we can rule over all things with the authority of the throne. All of us have to learn to pray with authority. (CWWN, vol. 22, “The Prayer Ministry of the Church,” pp. 196-198)
