Watch for Corporate Authority to Demolish Strongholds That Individual Authority Can’t Budge

By Wanda Alger Published on May 10, 2024

My husband, Bobby, and I were recently in Houston, Texas, where we led a select group of community-minded leaders and prayer warriors in principles of covenant prayer and spiritual warfare. In our short time together, the Holy Spirit demonstrated a powerful revelation that will affect the whole Body of Christ in the days to come.

During one of our worship times, I could sense a gift of faith released upon the whole group for healing. They had been receiving the messages Bobby and I were releasing, and there was a growing receptivity to new things and a desire to see God move in supernatural power. As they lifted their praises to the Lord in response, I knew we were being given an opportunity to step in and act on this gift of faith in our midst.

I asked who felt a gift of faith stirring in their hearts. Over half of them raised their hands. Then I asked who needed physical healing. I told those with ignited faith to go lay their hands on those who needed healing and see what God would do. It didn’t take long to see the results: Several people experienced the healing presence of the Lord, with significant improvement in their condition, in addition to others experiencing total healing and pain being completely eradicated.

God is calling us to stand together – as one Body, in one Spirit, and in one faith.

But the one that stood out was from a woman who had come to me previously asking for prayer for ringing in her ears. She had been following my own journey of healing from tinnitus and asked me to pray for her, seeing that the ring had lingered for almost two years with no relief. I had prayed for her right before worship, even though there was no tangible evidence of anything changing. I had even mentioned that the ringing may be caused by some larger territorial spirits or principalities (given how many people are experiencing the same thing).

When our corporate faith was activated in prayer, this woman came running to me declaring, “The ringing is gone!” Others had laid their hands on her, and she received her healing! She had even gone outside to test her hearing and, for the first time in almost two years, there was silence.

It wasn’t through my personal anointing or authority that healing came. It was a corporate faith among the community of believers that brought her breakthrough.

Let’s Agree As One Voice

I believe this is a sign of what’s to come. We are now facing principalities and powers at work that cannot be moved apart from a collective authority in prayer. It will be through communities of believers who have become united in spirit, and walk towards the same Kingdom purposes, that an authority will rise up to demolish demonic strongholds over entire regions.

The Word says not to neglect meeting together (Hebrews 10:25). I believe it’s because of this dynamic of corporate authority. There are things the Lord cannot — and will not — do until we come together and AGREE as ONE VOICE. Even as we all grow in our personal authority in Christ to defeat strongholds in our own lives and families, it is this corporate authority that must now mature and become a supernatural force upon the earth.

Until we all attain to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to mature manhood, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ. (Ephesians 4:13 ESV)

God is calling us to stand together — as one Body, in one Spirit, and in one faith. He is calling us to establish communities of faith where we walk together and practice our faith collectively. It is this corporate faith in His Word and power that will demolish those things we can’t budge by our own authority or perceived status in the spirit.

Principalities are formed by collective lies and the deception of the masses. Thus, it is a people of righteousness and faith in a holy God who will have jurisdiction to displace and squeeze out enemy forces. It is the priesthood of all believers that must take their place to overturn the powers that have aligned themselves against us. It is WE the people who will overcome the world through our collective faith and demonstrate the true power of our God.
