God’s authority in the earth (Matt. 6:9-10; Isa. 62:1-2, 6-7)
3b. Intense supplication involves praying and demanding for personal spiritual power (Ps. 63:1-2; Phil. 3:10)

i. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost was an initiation into power for the Apostles (Acts 1:8)

CONCLUSION:
1. God does not release His power carelessly, He releases His power for those who meet the demands (Hos. 6:3)

2. God’s power is not cheap to access but it is more than worth the cost at the end of the day
