THE NECESSITY OF PRAYER (II)


FIRE SCRIPTURE: Luke 11:1-13


MEMORY VERSE:

Philippians 4:6"Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."


PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit


THE MESSAGE:

The necessity of prayer can never be over-emphasised. Prayer is man's greatest power. It is the key to all the treasures of this life and the hereafter. A day without prayer is a day without blessing and a life without prayer is a life without power. An old hymn says "Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer that calls me from a world of care..." Our Memory Verse for today says, "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God."


The most effective way by which you can tell God your problems is through prayer. When you go into your prayer closet, you forget every other thing and talk to God in total reverence and perfect submission. For your prayers to be effective, they must be said in Jesus' name. The reason is that Jesus' name is the only name approved by God for believers and unbelievers to approach Him. Secondly, you must be living in God's will if you expect Him to answer your prayers. God will give you what you ask for only if your desires are in harmony with His will and you have the right and pure motive (Psalms 19:14).


Thirdly, you must have true and sincere faith that God hears your prayers, has the ability to accomplish what you ask and will do what He knows is good for you. Jesus states clearly: "What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that you receive them, and ye shall have them" (Mark 11:24). To the father of a demon-possessed boy, He said: "All things are possible to him that believeth" (Mark 9:23). Believing is imperative when we pray.


Beloved, prayer is not child's play, but a serious matter for those who mean business with God and know that, they are coming out better. So, when you do not feel like praying, that is when prayer is needed most. Pray, so that you won't have to pray when it is too late!


MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE:

Pray so that you won't have to be forced by circumstances to pray.


PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:

THE DIVINE ENGINE OF PRAYER SHALL DESCEND UPON YOU BY FIRE.

PRAYER POINTS:


MORNING

1. Powers attacking my spiritual life, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.

2. O Lord, let the enemies of my prayer life be confounded and disgraced, in the name of Jesus.

3. Vision killers, I stop you before you stop me, in the name of Jesus.


EVENING

4. Miracle that surpasses my understanding, manifest at my prayer altar, in the name of Jesus.

5. Power to pray until something happens, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.

6. Power to mount up as eagles, fall upon my prayer life, in the name of Jesus.

7. Anything in my life that does not reflect God, come out and die, in the name of Jesus.
