There is a prayer movement that is breaking out across the globe and I want to caution us not to go out of prayer. Satan has a way of derailing us off the right path for we have people who brag more about their prayer life than the God they pray to.

Prayer is relevant because it is answered by God. It is God who is important because He makes our prayers special, meaningful and valuable.

John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

True prayer is an outflow from the heart of God, into the heart of a man and back to God’s heart. The cycle of prayer begins and ends with God. This makes us His agents of expression; this is how His will finds expression on earth. (Matthew 6:10)

1 Corinthians 3:9 For we are God’s fellow workers; you are God’s field, [you are] God’s building.

We partner with God because He is the source in heaven and we are His agents on the earth. Anything that is of God starts with God, not with you, so make sure that you are not the initiator but the respondent.

This is how we will be effective in the place of prayer and produce results that bring about the propagation of this kingdom that we have been brought into.

These days we are living in demand for greater manifestations of God. The reason we pray is not to show off but that men may see the light, turn away from their wicked ways and know the only true God.

Acts 8:9-10, 12-13 [9]But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, [10] to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, “This man is the great power of God.”

[12] But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized. [13]Then Simon himself also believed; and when he was baptized he continued with Philip, and was amazed, seeing the miracles and signs which were done.

Great wonders and miracles happened in the city of Samaria, people abandoned witchcraft and turned to the Lord because Philip stepped into the city with a greater and superior power.

If we are going to win over the world and turn people to God as a church and body of Christ, we have to display the miraculous, supernatural signs and wonders that will arrest the attention of men and draw them back to Jesus.

John 10:37-38 If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; but if I do, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father [is] in Me, and I in Him.”

These great manifestations of wonders and miracles become the preaching to this generation.

Therefore, we must step into the dimension where God breaks out in our midst in mighty demonstrations of His glory and power amongst people for this kingdom is not just in words.

We have to gather our hearts together again and move from this level of mediocrity in our meetings and begin to desire to see the public display of the hand of God among believers.

Isaiah 42:21 The LORD is well pleased for His righteousness’ sake; He will exalt the law and make [it] honorable.

God honours His word by confirming it with signs, wonders and miracles. The drive in our spirits should be for God to magnify His word.

When His glory becomes the reason for our cry, the heavens will open for us but if we want to prove that we have been called by God, then we have lost it. May God raise men whose lives are sold out to reveal Jesus to their generation again.
