Sunday Letter – 11-08-2019
Love Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received grace and apostleship for obedience of faith amongst all nations.
In this season of New Things, it is important that I communicate to you the Power of Prayer. Through prayer we can effect changes in the natural affairs of men, we can unleash the Power of God to transform our circumstances. Prayer is a master key. But many do not really know that prayer is the key to exploring the unlimited possibilities in God. Let’s begin by defining prayer in the context of the Scriptures.
Firstly, Prayer is making a demand or request on God based on His promise to meet that need. This definition is based on 1 John 5:14-15 which says, “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.”
Every time we pray according to the Word of God in faith, our answers are guaranteed. If you notice the most powerful prayers in Scripture like Jacob’s prayer in Genesis 32:9-12; Moses’s Prayer in Exodus 32:9-14; Nehemiah’s Prayer in Nehemiah 1:4-11 and even Daniel’s Prayer in Daniel 9; you will notice that they prayed according to the Scriptures. That’s the way to pray in order to get God’s attention: You pray according to His revealed will in the Scriptures. See 2 Samuel 7 and Nehemiah 9.
Secondly, Prayer is invoking the supernatural to change the natural. Praying is making a demand on the omnipotence of God. See Isaiah 45:11 KJV; Jeremiah 33:3; 32:17,27; Ephesians 3:20-21. God seeks to show Himself strong on our behalf. Prayer is inviting God to demonstrate His Power, to show His might, to assert Himself on your behalf.
Prayer is permitting God to intervene in the affairs of men. God has delegated authority on earth to men. See Psalm 115:16; 8:4-8; Luke 10:19; Matthew 28:18-20. When we pray, we are enlisting or soliciting the intervention of Almighty God. Don’t be quiet, pray. Make demands on God based on His Word and believe Him that He will keep His Word and perform His Promise. Though it tarry, persevere in the prayer, what He promised will surely come to pass. See Hebrews 6:11-12; 10:35-36. Let’s stop there for now.
Until tomorrow, May God bless you abundantly and preserve you from all evil. May the Lord make His face to shine upon and give you favor wherever you go. May the Lord lift His countenance upon and give you His peace in your heart, in your home, on your jobs and in your going out and in your coming in, in Jesus Name, Amen. Selah
