*ARE ANY OF YOU SUFFERING HARDSHIP? YOU SHOULD PRAY.
*1THESSALONIANS 5:17.NEVER STOP PRAYING.
REJOICE IN OUR CONFIDENT HOPE. BE PATIENT IN TROUBLE, KEEP ON PRAYING.
*What man or woman who desire to be successful in life naturally, prosperous in life naturally, victorious in life naturally let them pray. Take your problem to God in prayer, after you have prayed expect the answer that is if you are a Kingdom citizen.
*PRAYER IS ONE OF THE KINGDOM KEYS. JESUS SAID I GIVE YOU KEYS OF THE KINGDOM. Before you enter into prayer, what will help you to pray effectively is knowledge of the written word of God. Understand that you are living in satan’s territory, we are spiritually, naturally surrounded with all kinds of circumstances, prayer indeed is the best option in any circumstance.
*If we will experience all the promises of God made in His word concerning us, prayer will make them possible. All things will become possible because we pray. Through prayer you are able to generate power to keep you strong in faith in this wicked world full of challenges.Your faith will work to produce result for you if you will dare to understand how important prayer is. The prayer of faith will make solution available.
*ACTS 16:25-28. Around midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening. Suddenly, there was massive earthquake, and the prison was shaken to its foundations. All the doors immediately flew open, and the chains of every prisoner fell off! The jailer woke up to see the prison doors wide open. He assumed the prisoners had escaped, so he drew his sword to kill himself. But Paul shouted to him, “stop! Don’t kill yourself! We are all here!” Prayer made solution possible naturally. Remember God is not your problem, the god of this world is your problem. In the midnight of trouble, they remembered to pray and sang praises unto their God.
*JAMES 5:16. Confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. This is what Paul and Silas did to create solution for themselves. Their prayer made tremendous power available and other prisoners saw the manifestation of God’s power before them. God is greatly concern about meeting all your needs. But is He your SHEPHERD? He is a great God, a Father with the Heart of care, full of kindness. He is the God who made heaven and earth. In your Redemption are the blessings. Knowledge of God, His word will help you to be in charge, not the devil. Prayer will help you to see things differently. Prayer will help you to handle Life with wisdom. Prayer will help you to walk in the right path. Prayer will help you to follow the direction of the Holy Spirit because it will allow you access to the power of God.
MATTHEW 6:13. AND DON’T LET US YIELD TO TEMPTATION, BUT RESCUE US FROM THE EVIL ONE.
God will deliver you from evil because you have allow the Holy Spirit to be your Director.
*Understand that the Grace of Christ Jesus covers every area of your life naturally. Prayer will help you to break through barriers spiritually and naturally, impossibilities will become possible through effective prayer of faith.
PRAYER IS YOUR DIRECT COMMUNICATION WITH GOD YOUR CREATOR. Praying unto God makes supply available naturally. It is His will for you to live in abundance. God will not answer any prayer that is not connected with His word.
PRINCIPLE OF EFFECTIVE PRAYER:
Prayer should be done through faith in the heart. Prayer is your secret time of devotion with God. Hezekiah after he received God’s message from prophet Isaiah, he turned his face to the wall and prayed asking God to have mercy on him. God heard him, He answered him by healing him of the sickness, delievered him from death, restored him back to life naturally because he humbled himself before God. He would have died according to what he heard, even though he was sick.You are nobody without God. Very important for you know that prayer is the key.
*PSALM 132:15. I WILL BLESS THIS CITY AND MAKE IT PROSPEROUS: I WILL SATISFY ITS POOR WITH FOOD (God will change your life naturally because you have spiritually prayed unto Him). When you pray believe in Him with your heart that He would help you naturally. You will access blessing from grace. Prayer should be made from the stand point of scriptural knowledge and understanding of His will from the scripture.
*Your prayer will become effective, powerful and active which guarantees you victory naturally. Learn to depend on the Holy Spirit, your prayer will only be effective based on your spiritual understanding of who God is, don’t forget your relationship with Him is equally very important. Hezekiah was able to received healing, restoration from God because of his relationship with God. Jabez was more honorable than any of his brothers. His mother named him Jabez because his birth was painful. Situations, circumstances, challenges will force you to pray and cry out for help from God. He prayed unto God by faith, change my story, increase me and expand my territory, make me more, and more honorable. God granted him his heart’s desire.
*This poor man (David) cried out to God Almighty and God helped him. You can have LG products in your house but you are not enjoying Life. If you are born again, you should desire the sincere milk of the word that you may grow spiritually. Ifyou don’t have a desire to have a walking relationship with God, I wonder how you are going to live a VICTORIOUS life in this world of wickedness. God IS THE AUTHOR OF LIFE. As a christian you are born again, nothing should interest you like prayer. Jesus Christ said to Peter I give to you the keys of the Kingdom.[the power to bind, the power to loose]. Holy Spirit is one of the greatest gift God has given to the Church (the body of Christ) especially to help believers in prayer.
“JESUS GAVE THESE KEYS TO US FOR A PURPOSE”. Whatever you don’t like on earth, we too in Heaven will not like it . Whatever you accepted on earth, we will simply agree with you in heaven. Heaven will response to us based on the principle of character, agreement and understanding . Heaven will not force us to do what we are supposed to do, or not willing to do. That’s why heaven gave us power and authority, whatsoever you choose to do with it, is directly your responsibility. What is acceptable to you is acceptable to us in Heaven. Prayer set Paul and Silas free.
*In Deuter 30:15.”Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster. (Verse 19).Today I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessings and curses. Now I call on Heaven and earth to witness the choice you make. Oh that you would choose Life so that you and your descendants might live! You will quench all satanic purpose against you. Whatever the Holy Spirit ask you to do, do because it is for your own benefit. Jesus prayed
*Brother James advice to us is, are you afflicted, are you in danger, financially down, life is hard, you don’t have understanding of what is happening. Prayer is the only way out. Paul said, by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving make your requests known unto God. We are not sufficient in ourselves to make it happen, but our sufficiency is of God . You will prevail through prayers by faith and believe in your heart.
*Revelation knowledge of God will wake you up from within that with God all things are possible, you will build strong faith, strong confidence in His God and you will experience NEWNESS naturally in that situation.
*What you will experience in life naturally is determined by you. You are responsible for your success, prosperity, victory naturally. Jesus is not responsible for your success, you are. Understand that prayer is not an exercise to while away time, rather prayer is the [DIVINE] agent for your change.
LUKE 18:1. One day Jesus told His disciples a story to show that they should always pray and “NEVER GIVE UP.”
*PRAYER CREATES POWER TO MAKE ALL THINGS NATURALLY POSSIBLE.
*You will enjoy grace by way of special favor, you will disarm principalities, power of darkness, rulers of this territory, Spiritual wickedness in high places who are at work to stop you and the purpose ofyour Father for you.Therefore if you don’t see prayer as the key to unlock doors, my brother, my sister you will not pray. Absence of prayer, that is fervent prayer in the Spirit, we will faint in the time of trouble. Decide to take prayer to another level because you want to succeed in every area of Life. Living naturally as a citizen of the kingdom is possible through prayer.
*STOP COMPLAINING ABOUT SATAN,he is doing his work, you should do yours also that is pray and he will flee from you.
*SENSITIVE IN THE SPIRIT.
It is important that we maintain a life of prayer by paying more and more attention to the Holy Spirit. We will not suffer damages of any kind, or lack supplies in our lives naturally because we are walking with the Holy Spirit and we are listening to Him. Success, prospering, victory is guarantee in our daily lives. Walking in the Spirit consciousness will help us achieve more. Through prayer, the anointing and power will be available unto you, we will enjoy the presence of the Holy Spirit if we can recognize Him as our helper. This is another way to harness the power of God. Jesus Himself was prayerful in His days while here.
LUKE9:29.AND AS HE WAS PRAYING, THE APPEARANCE OF HIS FACE WAS TRANSFORMED, AND HIS CLOTHE BECAME DAZZLING WHITE.
I am sure His disciples must have wondered secretly saying where does this man get His anointing and power from? [Verse 30-32.].Suddenly, two men, Moses and Elijah, appeared and began talking with Jesus. They were glorious to behold. And they were speaking about His exit from this world, which was about to be fulfilled in Jerusalem. Peter and the others had fallen asleep. When they woke up, they saw Jesus’ glory and the two men standing with Him.Jesus brought them to this place to learn from Him, but they were so tired and would not join Him to pray. Your greatness in life naturally should be your concern and decision. God has already decided your greatness. If you decide to pray it is an indication that you want to see the will of God come to pass. Circumstances, challenges should provoke you to pray.
*ACTS 3:1. Peter and John went to the Temple one afternoon to take part in the three O’clock prayer service. I remember very well in 1987 how we formed a prayer group. Every Saturday morning we gathered to pray and make intercession not necessarily for ourselves but for our pastor Rev Dr Tunde Joda and the church Christ Chapel International churches (Ccic). That the work of God in his hands should be great.
*We move from house to house every Saturday morning for fellowship. It may interest you to know that we were all youths who desired to know God. Love to know Him brought us together. Miracles followed us daily. We did not gathered to form church.
Are you looking for who will pray for you? You will wait forever. We had a pastor, coach, mentor who was a man after God’s heart, a teacher with revelation knowledge of the word and full of Insight. He is a man of prayer. I learned from him that if you will succeed in the natural you must pray in the Spirit.
My friend, prayer is the key. Is any among you afflicted let him pray. Do not cease to pray because the days are evil.
