But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus.
Ephesians 2:4-7 NIV
When we're praying with others, it's important to encourage a Christ follower's identity as one who is:
God raised us up with Jesus and seated us with him (Ephesians 2.) Jesus has all authority in heaven on on earth (Matthew 28:18) given to him. And we are his, we are in him and he in us. Encourage people with whom you pray (and consider yourself) to believe and leverage this authority, an authority that allows us to bind up and cast out the enemy.
As you pray with others, it's important to be aware of our actual identity in Jesus. For those who are Christ followers, they have authority over the enemy. You must might have to walk them through their story in order to identify where the enemy has something going on, help them name it, and ultimately help them "break any chains." Let's walk through a fictional story to help illustrate this.
Let's say you're talking to a friend, Sally. As you're hearing Sally's story, or maybe preparing to pray with or for her, you identify something that doesn't sound right. Maybe Satan is coming against Sally. As you dig into her story, it does indeed seem Satan is bringing an accusation; Sally says "I am just unlovable" and it's because of something in the past. You'll need to probe deeper, trying to uncover what has happened in her story, and lead Sally to identify, name, break, and heal.
