Dear God

Dear God!

It seems that prayer is my favorite topic right now.  I guess it’s because I am daily realizing afresh that nothing changes issues like prayer.

I’m sure ive lost a few people right about there.  Here goes! I Know!I’ve tried it!, nothing ever works I can hear you say.  But hold on, or read on to at least hear what I have to say.

The bible says the confess your faults one to another and pray, one for another, that ye may be healed.  the effectual fervert prayer of a righteous man availeth much James 5:16 It goes on ahead and speaks of Elias who was a man like us who prayed earnestly and it did not rain, and he prayed again earnestly and it rained.

Wow!  I wish I could say the same for myself.  But I must add that I am trying to pray earnestly.  How?

1. By keeping my life pure.  Isaiah 59:1  Behold the Lord’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save, neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear, but your iniquities have separated between you and your God and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. Sin will cause God not to hear you and your prayer will be ineffective

2.By studying the word of God.  Psalm1:1 Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the  ungodly nor standeth in the way of sinners nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful.  but his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night.  …..and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

4. By praying the word of God by revelation knowledge

Many situations in  life require divine revelation  to know what is going on and how to pray about it. This knowledge comes by revelation as you engage actively in spiritual warfare.  Previously I would pray as my mind would inteprete the situation, and the solutions that I thought were acceptable to me.     Alas! when the results came they would not be what I expected.

By the grace of God, I have learnt to seek for root causes of issues and address the root causes.  Untill the root cause is  addressed and dealt with, the problem will continue to present itself again and again.

May God  give you a spirit of wisdom and understanding,  the spirit of counsel and might, the spirit of knowledge and the fear of God ( Isaiah 11:2)  to pray effectively

prayer point:  Oh Lord give me a spirit of wisdom, of understanding, of counsel, spirit of might,  the spirit of knowledge, and the spirit of the fear of God in the name of Jesus.

Dear God!

Feeling better! thank you Lord.  Been spending some  few evening  praying and standing against any attack from Satan.  But everyday has its own new share of issues/stuff.

Wow! but i will be thankful to God in everything and for everything.

Do you know recently it has come afresh to me that this battle we fight against satan will be on untill we draw our last breath.    When we overcome in one area he moves on to another area.  for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against , principilaties, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places Eph 6: 12

But I love the fact that we serve a living, never changing God, who says the weapons of  our warfare are not carnal but are MIGHTY through the Holy Ghost to the pulling down of strongholds

Right there is a guarantee of victory.  But I can hear you say that you do not know what I face, where I am at the moment, what situation I am in currently.  My dear, God is able to do more than you can even think or imagine

I do not know what you are imagining that if God would do  for you than you would be in complete victory.   I have news for you He is able to do much more than that.  Bigger, Better, More visible things than you are thinking of.

I have to go and praise him some more right here!!!

later!!

Today I need healing.  This is a  result of feeling under the weather during the day.  I realize when you are not well, you become weak, ineffective, and begin to focus inwardly.

The devil is a liar, and the truth is not in him.  God desires that we may prosper and be in good health.(i john 2:3)  That is my scripture for the day that it is the Good and perfect will of  God for me to be in health, not only health but perfect health.

My prayers for healing are:

I thank you Father  that you desire that I may be in perfect health in Jesus name.

I thank you Father that you made  a way for me to be delivered when the enemy sought to afflict me

I thank you Father for the blood of Jesus which speaks of better things to me

In the name of Jesus and by the blood of Jesus let every spirit of infirmity come out of my body with all your roots

In the name of Jesus and by the blood of Jesus  let every stubborn agent of disease be destroyed by fire in the name of Jesus

In the name of Jesus and by the blood of Jesus let every internal disorder receive order

Dear God!

When I think of all the years that i have been a christian, the many prayers I have offered up, and the many prayers that especially that have gone unanswered, the question I ask is, why God did you not answer them?

Lately ( this year) you has been redirecting my prayer life, and showing me keys that have led to answers to prayer in my life.

Key no I  .Understanding the weapons of our warfare :  This is a critical aspect of successful prayer life.  No country in the world can afford to have an army that does not understand the weapons   it can employ against the enemy.  That is why nations will use billions of dollars to train their armies and more  upgrade their armories.

God also has an armory, but alas! many do not know it. let us look at one weapon in his armory

The blood of Jesus

“I’ve heard that” I can almost hear you say!!! But truly, a deeper understanding of what the blood is and what it did for us will enable any one to become more effective in their prayer life.  Many times we do not clearly understand what kind of victory the blood bought for us, and we only use it lightly.

It is by far one of the most powerful weapon we have in our armory of weapon

When Jesus died on Calvary, Golgotha, and his blood touched the earth, several things happened,

  • there was an earthquake,
  • the graves opened,
  • the curtain at the temple tore into two,
  • there was darkness on the earth for 3 hours.

It was a defining moment in time, in all history.  The defeat of Satan was being finalized.

You see this was the second time Satan was being defeated by the blood. In revelation 12, we read of Satan being cast out of heaven and before he was cast out there was war in heaven where Michael the archangel and his army fought the devil, and cast him out.  The bible says they overcame him by the blood of the lamb and by the word of their testimony. ( a thousand amens!!!)

From then on Satan has hated the seed of the woman, and he relentlessly pursues man because of the defeat he suffered, in heaven,(Genesis 12) read it please!!!!,

We are in a battle standing in a position of victory, because the weapon we are using has already defeated our enemy and will continue to defeat him every time he comes into contact with it.

That is why when even under extraneous circumstances someone can call on the name of the Lord and the blood of Jesus and the demons and Satan have no choice but to move.

What the blood of Jesus does

  • It cleanses us from sin, confess your sins and ask for the cleansing of the blood
  • It becomes a covering to us as we approach the throne room of the Lord for Mercy ( it is not by our works but by the blood of Christ)
  • The blood speaks ( it has a voice) of a better promise to us
  • It bloats out ( wipes out) ordinances(curses, stuff) written/ spoken over our lives
  • The blood gives us a new relationship with God in that we now become his sons and heirs of his kingdom.
  • The blood makes us have a covenant relationship with Christ.  All that he has is ours and all that we have is his.
  • The blood overcame satan in heaven, when he was cast out, here on earth by the death of Christ on the cross.  So whenever we use it, Satan is reminded of his defeat.

No matter how stubborn an issue has been or no matter how long it has been in existence, the blood of Jesus when applied to that issue or situation can bring a complete turnaround.

How can I say that

Proof of the power of  the blood of Jesus

In the old testatment: Look at what the blood of animals did when Israel was delivered from Egypt.  They had been in bondage for over 400 years,  but with a divine promise (covenant ) and the blood of the Passover, God delivered them overnight, with wealth, riches, favour, freedom, etc.  What then can the blood of Christ which is divine with the a divine covenant of God for Salvation do?  Is there any thing too hard for the Lord

When the walls of Jericho came down, the people had just been circumcised, blood had just been poured evoking a covenant of circumcision and walls which had stood for years, strong, unshakeable, immovable, fell down in one go.  Is there any thing too hard for the Lord.

When Solomon in his dedication of the temple to the Lord slaughtered thousands of animals.  Historians say that the blood that flowed  that day was like a river, and it ran for days. That blood (of animals ) caused God to visit Solomon that night and ask him what he wanted God to do for him.  Is there any thing too hard for the Lord.

We could go on and on, the blood of animals did so much in the old testament, can you imagine the divine, pure, unadulterated, holy blood of the lamb Jesus!!!! It is the ultimate weapon.
