And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Luke 18:1
In few days time, we will enter the ‘ember’ months, a period when evil intensifies, and a period when the lives and destinies of men are weighed on the balance. It is important that you engage a vital force to break through the barriers and push through to the end of the year. Prayer is a vital force for victory in the spirit. When you conquer the spiritual through prayer, every other thing falls into place. Jesus knew this and so when He was about to be arrested for crucifixion, He went to the garden of Gethsemane with His disciples to pray. When He got there, He told them, “…Pray that ye enter not into temptation.” (Luke 22:40). He said this to them severally. This was because He had foresight and thus knew what was coming. So while He fortified Himself through prayer, He wanted the disciples to do the same. However they were too weary to pray. When the trouble came, Jesus was strong to face it but all the disciples ran away; even Peter denied Jesus. That was a result of their prayerlessness.
Prayer is so powerful that Jesus said in Matthew 18:18, “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.” That is how forceful prayer is. It can move any mountain. It can scatter every confederacy against you; it can align elemental forces in your favour; it can raise a wall of protection around you and yours; it is a life preserver. Know that as a child of God, all authority has been given to you with Angels working to carry out the Word of God you decree in prayer. Don’t be overtaken by events and then you look for who to blame. It is time to rise up in the place of prayer and take charge of your territory.
Our 30 days of prayer and fasting begins on the first day of September. Start now to prepare yourself. Let Your prayer go up so that victory will come down for you
During Tuesday Service Daddy gave a word of knowledge about someone in service that owed someone else a huge sum of money, and asked the person to come out for prayer of debt cancelation. I came out and Daddy prayed for me. The following day, the person I owed told me not to worry about the money I owed (N400, 000). Halleluyah!
