WHY MEN OUGHT TO PRAY

Feb 20, 2023

  1. PRAYER IS AN INSTRUCTION.

Luke 18:1 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,

Prayer is an instruction that we ought to obey. Therefore, when we pray (obedience to instruction), it is proof that we love the Master (John 14:15).

  1. FELLOWSHIP

It is on the platform of prayer that we fellowship with the Trinity (contact the divine) and it is during such moments that spiritual transaction occurs and there is a transfer of virtues that affects our being.

During the fellowship, what is of God rubs on us making us carriers of His presence wherever we go (in our families, clans, at our workplaces, etc.).

  1. REVELATION

Jeremiah 33:3 ‘Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.’

Proverbs 20:12 The hearing ear and the seeing eye, The Lord has made them both.

Through prayer, we call on God that He may reveal to us what concerns us: the seeing eyes and the hearing ears are not for prophets only but for every child of God (Joel 2:28).

Remember, in this kingdom, we triumph and rise by knowledge (Deuteronomy 29:29, Hosea 4:6, Daniel 11:32).

  1. MANIFESTATION OF THE REVEALED WORD

Deuteronomy 29:29 “The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but those things which are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

The Lord has already determined every spiritual blessing concerning you but it takes priesthood to bring them into physical manifestation (Ephesians 1:3).

Do not forget that REVEALED WORD. Pray to God to show you the direction He wants you to take in order to walk into that revelation.

  1. DIVINE INTERVENTION

Read 2 Chronicles 20

King Jehosophat knew that he was helpless. That is why he had to invite his Heavenly Father to help him and He (God) came through for him.

2 Chronicles 20:22-24 Now when they began to sing and to praise, the Lord set ambushes against the people of Ammon, Moab, and Mount Seir, who had come against Judah; and they were defeated.[23]For the people of Ammon and Moab stood up against the inhabitants of Mount Seir to utterly kill and destroy them. And when they had made an end of the inhabitants of Seir, they helped to destroy one another. [24]So when Judah came to a place overlooking the wilderness, they looked toward the multitude; and there were their dead bodies, fallen on the earth. No one had escaped.

Many times, we feel helpless when confronted with challenges and battles of life, but when we invite God on the platform of prayer, He overwhelms us.

STAY BLESSED AND HIGHLY FAVORED, WE LOVE YOU.
