A decree is defined in the dictionary as an official order given by a person with power and an order usually having the force of law.
From a spiritual perspective, it is no different. The person with power is YOU--and that power is the I AM Presence within you and the living Christ, the Son of God, that dwells in your heart. You are calling upon God's universal law and light to be enacted in a given situation.
If you are new to the art and science of using the spoken word as a creative force, we recommend that you begin by listening to this dynamic presentation on how meditation, prayer, and the spoken word are the perfect alchemy for changing your life and the world around you.
This excerpt is from the late Elizabeth Clare Prophet who mastered the art of invocation and the various forms of prayer and taught this art to many around the world.

Breakthrough prayer combines the fires of the heart, visualization of the desired result, and the incredible power of the Word.
It can be devotional, meditative, celebratory, or powerful fiats for immediate action.
This powerful form of prayer is the fulfillment of God's mandate to Isaiah:
"Concerning the work of my hands, command ye me," (Isaiah 45:11)
And God's mandate to Job:
"Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee." (Job 22:28)
Jesus Christ also taught the power of the word:
"By thy words thou shalt be justified and by thy words thou shalt be condemned." (Matthew 12:37)
The Qur'an says:
"I answer the prayer of the supplicant when he calls on Me." (Qur'an 2:186)
For centuries, spiritual traditions of the East have understood and have used the power of the Word in mantras passed down from teacher to student.
Not only are mantras used for focusing the mind in meditation, but also for the release of light to effect change in your life and the lives of others.
You, too, can experience the power of the Word
in affirmations, decrees, prayers, mantras, and fiats
to release the sacred fire of the presence of God within you.
