It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God. Have you ever known someone who gives up at the first sight of attack or despair? The first person who disagrees with him or her, they want to walk away from the dream. Since no one believes it can be done, they want to throw away all of their days of fasting and nights of laboring. No willingness. No perseverance. No tenacity. Have you ever depended on other people’s prayers to get you through? You did not believe your prayers would be heard like those your friend solicit. You expected your friends and family to talk to God on your behalf. You never bowed down on your knees. You never called upon the Lord’s name. If others did not believe and pray for you, no prayers were submitted. (Key note: To pray for others and have others pray for you is very important, but you must also know how to pray for yourself.) Have you ever been there? Are you there now?
Today, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you. Do you believe there’s power in prayer? Do you believe God still answers prayer? In spite of what the enemy told you, God still hears and answers our prayers. He is still willing and able to do what we need done in our lives. Today, I want to encourage you. My friend, Never Stop Praying … It Really Works! The Bible declares in James 5:16 - Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. There’s something about prayer that enables the Believer to enter into the presence of our God. It is true, much prayer much power; little prayer little power; and no prayer no power. No matter what you are experiencing today, you can take it to the Lord in prayer. Whether it is your personal matter, a friend’s situation or a family member’s struggle, it can still be taken to the Lord in prayer.
My brother, my sister, Never Stop Praying … It Really Works! The blessings you enjoy today, comes as a result of someone’s prayers for you. You did not think you did it alone … did you? It is because of the mercies of God that we are not consumed (Lamentations 3:22). The Bible declares in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 - Pray without ceasing. Beloved, what are you dealing with today? What dilemma or tribulation are you faced with? Who are you worried about? What situation attempts to steal your joy and your peace? Are you praying about it? If yes, never stop. Have you stopped praying about it? If yes, why? Never Stop Praying … It Really Works! When you pray for someone else, pray for them … not at them or about them. The Bible declares in Matthew 5:44 - But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you. Prayer for Today: Father, I believe there is nothing too hard for You. I believe You can do anything but fail. Today, I do not cease in my prayers. In Jesus’ name … Amen!
