Topic: Prevailing In Prayer [Thursday January 19, 2017]
Scripture: And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh. And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. Genesis 32:26.
Thought For The Day: Prayer can change your life and destiny.
Prayer is an indispensable weapon in the hand of every prevailing Christian. This is because in order to win the battles of life, one must be connected to God through prayer.
It was prayer that changed the life and destiny of Jacob; He persisted in prayer until he prevailed with God.
It is important to know who Jacob was before the power of prayer changed his life:
Jacob was a man of continuous struggle and strife: He started his struggles from the womb (Genesis 25:22). He struggled to get his brother’s birth right and ran to Laban, his uncle to continue a life of struggles. He paid a bride price of 14 years’ hard labour and His wages was changed ten times.
He was also a victim of threat and intimidation: Esau intended to kill him because he took his birth right. That was the reason his mother sent him away to Laban. On his way to meet him after many years, he was afraid because a death sentence was on him, but prayer changed his life and caused him to prevail.
Beloved, I prophesy to you, as you become diligent in prayer, God shall bring change and transformation to your life and destiny in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Prayer can change your life and destiny.
