PREVAILING IN PRAYER

PREVAILING IN PRAYER

Pray without ceasing

1 Thess 5:17

The Bible admonishes us to pray without ceasing. We are not praying so that we can get God to change His mind and look on us with pity and heed our plea. On the contrary, as we pray, we are changed. 

In 1 John 5:14-15 ” Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that he hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”

This is a great scripture that boosts our confidence in prayer. Let’s however corroborate this scripture with another one in James 5:16 “… the effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much”

Do you see that? We are not praying without ceasing because God is deaf or far from us but because we know that our fervent prayer avails much, in other words making power available. This means there is such a thing as making power available towards a matter I’m handling in prayer; that like the cycle for the formation of rain, which begins with the evaporation of moisture from off the ground and later when the clouds are full of rain it empties on the earth. We put tension on those situations to take shape by Praying, we command the supernatural and birth miraculous outbreaks.

If you know you are righteous and like 1 John 5 says that we have that confidence that he hears us, then you should apply tension in your Prayer to birth the results you want to see. 

It is in prayer that we generate all the effects. As someone who desires impact, you can’t joke with Prayer; praying to the point you are under the influence of the Spirit.  

The strength and stamina of our Spirit are built up by Prayer, so put more tension in that place of prayer to see all that it is you desire of God.

CONFESSION: I BELIEVE AND I CONFESS THAT I AM NOT WEARY NOR WORN OUT OF PERSISTING IN PRAYER. MY PRAYER LIFE IS PERPETUALLY ON FIRE AND I REMAIN FERVENT, IN JESUS NAME. AMEN.

THERE IS LOVE IN SHARING

      This reminds me of my childhood days, my mum will always tell us to Pray without Ceasing and Seasons. Not only should you pray when you need something from God but EVERY TIME. Thank you Papa, for this.
