And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Luke 18:1
In Matthew 18:18, Jesus said, “Verily I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” This shows how powerful the prayer of a believer is. It is so powerful that not even heaven can go against whatever you command. This should be an eye opener; to let you know that things are the way they are in your life, family, career, and business because you have refused to bind the works of darkness and loose the blessings of God in your life. Jesus went further in our opening scripture to let us know the importance of prayer. According to Him, if the constant petition of the woman made the unjust Judge change his mind, then our prayer will get to God and will effect changes around us.
To push it further, in addition to activating the power in the blood by the communion, you need daily fervent prayer to dislodge the plans of the enemies. This could include fasting and midnight prayers. Whatever it takes, get fired up in your prayer life this season. Don’t relax. Don’t focus on eating and drinking because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: (1 Peter 5:8). He doesn’t stop looking for opportunity to strike, so you need to resist stedfast in the faith (Vs 9). That time you will want to slack in the place of prayer might be when the enemies will strike. Don’t be lazy in the place of prayer. Don’t leave your house any day without spending quality time in your prayer closet. Don’t go to bed at night without spending enough time in prayer.
I suffered stagnation in my business. At a point, customers stopped patronizing me. I attended services in church and heard several testimonies from people that used the oil of gladness. I got it and went home with it. I prayed with it that night and sprinkled it in my mouth. The following day, I made sales like never before. Praise God!
