•Prayer is man giving God the legal right and permission to interfere in earth’s affairs
•Prayer is man giving heaven earthly license to influence earth
•Prayer is a terrestrial license for celestial interference
•Prayer is man exercising his legal authority on earth to invoke heaven’s influence on the planet.
MUNROE’S THEORY WHY SO?
•Munroe’s theory states that man’s initial order to prayer began when the Triune God took counsel together and said, “let us make man in our image, in our likeness, and let them rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air, over the livestock, over all the earth, and over all the creatures that move along the ground” (Gen. 1:26-27).
•The earth is the domain of spiritual beings in a body (you and me) and because God has given us authority over this sphere; God will never go back on his words; what he has commanded from the foundation of the earth stands in eternity.
•So for the promises of God to be released unto us, someone (spiritual being in a body) has to pray and invoke the manifestation of His words on earth.
MAN BEING CALLED TO PRAY
•If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land. (2 Chron. 7:14)
•Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. (Luke 18:1-2)
•And pray in the Spirit (using God’s word they are spirit and life) on all occasions with all kinds of prayer and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep in praying for all the saints. (Eph. 6:17-18)
•Be joyful always; pray continually without ceasing; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thess. 5:16-19)
•I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. (Matt. 16:19-20)
•I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about anything you ask for, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. For where two or three come together in my name, there am I with them. (Matt. 18:18-20)
