Category: Pray It

Have you heard it said that a prayerless Christian is a powerless Christian? It is true. A Christian who does not pray regularly often becomes a prey of the devil but a Christian who prays to God often keeps the devil at bay. Prayer is the key to living victoriously.

2019 – The Year of Answered Prayers

This has been a year of answered prayers!

First my brother called my mum one day and apologized. It was a prayer answered! It was a major breakthrough in my family!

We had prayed for his return to the family for many years and one day, my long lost brother came back to us. He sought for peace to reign and by God’s grace we were reconciled. Today my family is reunited. Thanks be to God for an answered prayer!

Prayer of Commitment to Jesus

Lord Jesus help me to grow in the awareness that you are really my sustenance and nobody else.
Help me to continuously increase in the recognition that only you can make me become somebody in life.
Help me to rest in your strength as I realize that I am weak in my flesh.

I pray that I may be solely and wholly committed to my walk with you all the days of my life.
I pray that I may be wholly contented with my life with you for the rest of my life.
I pray that I may not turn away from the path of righteousness for your namesake.
I pray that the devil will not have a chance to sift me from the kingdom of our heavenly father.

Lord, Have Mercy!

Lord, I am flawed and nothing can make me right before you.
I have sinned and no one can cleanse me from this guilt.
I have disobeyed you and I must reap the consequences of my actions.

But you Lord, are merciful and just.
You will not condemn to death and you will not neglect the work of your hands.
Have mercy on me Lord I pray.

Lord, Let Your Word Prevail In Me

My flesh may burn with desires.
My stomach may churn with hunger.
My throat may thirst for water.
My eyes may lust for the world.
Lord, let your word prevail in me.

My past will not dictate my future.
My present life is unfolding with God’s features.
My future is in alignment with God’s plans and purpose for me.
Only God’s word will prevail over me. Continue reading “Lord, Let Your Word Prevail In Me”

Celebrate Christmas with Thanks to God for Christ!

God I thank you for the greatest gift of all time; Jesus Christ who saves all from all sins. If it were not for Christ, I would have died in my sins. I would have perished with this world. Thank you for Emmanuel who is with us all the time. His presence makes all things better; Sorrow disappears, sadness goes away. Depression cannot stay and there is peace in the midst of all chaos.

Thank you for the gift of life and for your breath in our lungs. Thank you for entrusting us with the precious life you have given us. Many times we take this life for granted but you are gracious and patience with us all. You continue to love and support us in spite of our negligence of life. Thank you God for the ability to function when all things are dysfunctional. Thank you for the broken heart mended, for the sickly body healed and for the downcast spirit lifted.

Repent and Pray for Forgiveness When You Hurt Someone

Christians sometimes struggle with forgiveness and repentance. When we get hurt, we want immediate justice and vengeance. And when we hurt other people’s feelings, we find it hard to swallow our pride, reflect upon our actions, accept our faults, repent from our sins and make amends where necessary. Instead of fighting for peace, we pursue deceit and end up being defeated. Instead of letting go and letting God fight the battle, we allow the flesh to rule and lead us into taking matters into our own hands and taking vengeance whenever we can.

I Believe My Prayers Shall Be Answered.

#Jesus said when you ask, believe and you will receive. Say it out loud and believe it – ” I believe my #prayers shall be answered. Though it tarries, it will surely come to pass”.

You may have prayed yet still expectant. The bible says that the expectation of the righteous shall not be caught off. I am expecting a miracle for you and I believe that your expectations will not be caught off.

When God says something, it does not return to him void. God’s word does not return to him until it accomplishes its purpose. Jesus says ask and you shall receive. If you have asked, believe and you will receive. If you are yet to ask, its never too late to ask God for your heart desires. His ears are not deaf not to hear you, he is expecting you to approach the throne of grace. So approach God with faith in your heart, ask and believe that he has heard you.

If you are like me waiting on God for an answer to prayers, be encouraged and have faith.

Make a declaration of faith
I believe my prayerd shall be answered. Though it tarries, it will surely come to pass. My expectations shall not be caught off. I have asked and I will receive. This is my declaration.

Send your prayer requests and I will join my faith with yours in prayer.

How to Wait on God in Prayer

Waiting on God is no child’s play. Your mind is anxious for the future, your heart is beating fast in the present. You wonder when the wait will end. You might even wander and attempt to help God, after all, the general consensus is that heaven helps those who help themselves, right? Except that Jesus along with many others in the Bible did not help God; they simply prayed.

They persisted in the place of prayer, they waited to hear from God and then they obeyed his instructions and things worked out for them. Six men and one woman stood out in the Bible when it comes to waiting on God in prayer. Jesus is the role model, Moses, Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and Hannah. They all went through different stages of waiting on God. You too can follow in their example and believe that God will answer your prayers.

How to tarry in the place of prayer

Separate yourself from the crowd

Stay away from any form of distractions. Separate yourself from the crowd for a maximum concentration before God. Jesus always withdrew from the crowd after a long hard day work. He often separated himself away from the crowd to a lonely quiet places (Luke 5:16). He told his disciples at the garden of Gethsemane, sit here while I go and pray yonder (Matthew 26:36). When a trap was set against Daniel, he went into his house and with his windows opened, he made his petition known to God (Daniel 6:10). Hannah left the celebration to be alone with God in the temple. She too separated herself from the crowd (1 Samuel 1:9).

Retrieve to a quiet place

After a very crucial meeting with his disciples, Jesus withdrew to a quiet place to pray at Gethsemane (Luke 5:16). When he taught his disciples to pray, he said go to your room and pray and your father who sees in the secret will reward you openly (Matthew 6:6). A quiet place for you can be a secluded place in a town or on top of a mountain where Jesus often went. It can be your house like Daniel did. It can be in your church like Hannah who went to Shiloh. Find a quiet place to pray.

Pray along with others

Have a Prayer partner or an accountability partner. Call it what you may but Jesus showed us the importance of having prayer partners or people to tarry along with you in the place of prayers. Jesus took three disciples with him to tarry with him as he prayed in Gethsemane (Matthew 26:36). Moses took Joshua with him to the mountain where he received the ten commandments (Exodus 24:13). Daniel prayed with his friends for God to reveal the king’s dream (Daniel 2:17-18), even the disciples tarried together on the day of Pentecost (Acts 2:1).

Make your petition known to your prayer partners

Let your prayer partner(s) know the state of your mind – Jesus made his heart known to the three disciples who were with him. He said, my soul is exceedingly sorrowful even unto death, tarry ye here and watch with me (Matthew 26:38). Daniel gathered his friends to pray together and seek for answers from God for the king (Daniel 2:18).

Make your supplication known to God

Daniel made his supplication known to God with thanksgiving and he did this three times a day (Daniel 6:10). The Bible says, do not be anxious about anything but in every situation, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your requests to God (Philippians 4:6). There’s no need beating about the bush, go straight to the point. Avoid vain repetition as Jesus instructed us not to be like the heathen who use vain repetition during prayer (Matthew 6:7). Make your heart known to God like Hannah, who went to Shiloh every year and prayed to God for a child. She never wavered from her desire rather she offered her sacrifice and prayer request to God until her joy was full (1 Samuel 1).

Surrender to God’s Will

God has given us a Will and he will not enforce his will on us but his will should be our ultimate aim because his Will overrides everything. God is all knowing, he knows the past, the present and the future. He has a plan for each one of his creations. Your ultimate aim should be that your life will be aligned to his will. Jesus said, Father take this cup away from me but not my will but your will be done. Jesus taught us to pray saying, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven (Matthew 6:10). God’s Will should be done in every areas of our lives but we must surrender to his will because when we surrender to his will, everything begins to work according to his plan and for his good purpose.

Watch and pray

Go a little further in the place of prayer. Pray intensely. Pray with the passion. Pray for your heart desires to be fulfilled. Jesus went a little further as he went to pray (Matthew 26:39). Your flesh might be weak but persist in prayer, be consistent and leave the rest to God who will answer your prayers.

If you are ever waiting on God for anything, don’t give up. Try and incorporate these stages in your prayer plan and see God move. If you ever need someone to pray with you, do not hesitate to contact us and we will be glad to pray with you.
