Topic: A Lifting Up Through Prayer [Monday October 23, 2017]
Scripture: Go gather all the Jews that are present in Shushan and fast ye for me and neither eat nor drink three days night or day, I also and my maiden will fast likewise thus will I go in unto the king which is not according to the law and if I perish I perish. Esther 4:16
Thought For The Day: When you pray, obstacles of life are moved to a yonder position.
It has been established that prayer is a lifting force. It is a lifter of men. Prayer is what changes the lives of men and women of prayer. Your prayer is what changes your situation.
From our anchor scripture, we see that Haman set up machinery for the elimination of the Jewish race, but Queen Esther declared a three-day fasting and prayer for all the Jews. As a result of the prayer, Haman’s plot was not only reversed but he was hanged on the same gallows he prepared for Mordecai, the Jew.
Apart from terminating the plot of the enemy, another benefit of prayer is the moving of mountains (Matthew 17:20). When you pray, obstacles of life are moved to a yonder position.
Now, how do embark on result-oriented prayer?
- Identify the problem
When you engage in prayer, God opens your eyes to identify the problem or hindrance of your life. So, in prayer, identify the problem.
- Identify the relevant Word.
After identifying the problem at the place of prayer, also identify the relevant Word of God from the scripture that speaks about your situation.
For instance, when you identify your need for a child at the place of prayer, identify the scripture that addresses such a problem and address the problem at the place of prayer using the scripture.
Beloved, I counsel you to live a prayerful life. God is set to dissolve every obstacle of your life through prayer. Therefore, make up your mind to cultivate a persistent prayer life.
Remember This: When you pray, obstacles of life are moved to a yonder position.
- Endeavour to cultivate a consistent and persistent prayer life.
Resist the temptation to live a prayer-less life.
O LORD, I ask that You give me the grace to pray continually in Jesus’ Name.
