HOW VOWS AFFECT YOUR PRAYER LIFE (1) - PSALM 65:1B, PSALM 56:12 (LEB), ECCLESIASTES 5:2-6

One of the keys that gives birth to breaking through in the place of prayer is performing your vows. Not fulfilling your vow can lead to failure in the place of prayer. In the next three days, I want to show you secrets about your vows.
 
A vow is a promise deed. Covenants and vows are very similar and yet different. Both have been from of old and are not limited to Bible characters. Men from time immemorial have been cutting covenants and making vows! The two are binding on the parties involved. Both bring men unto an entirely new relationship altogether as far as the parties are concerned. A covenant is not initiated by a man of God- rather God initiates it and presents it to the man. On the contrary, a vow is initiated by the man and he presents it to God.
 
A vow can range from a tithe to quiet time or a fast and so on. A vow will then mean any promise you have made to or before God to perform. The reason many are prayer failures is that they have been unfaithful in their vows. In Ecclesiastes 5:2-6, the Bible says if you fail to pay a vow, it is equivalent to sin such that God gets angry at your voice or your prayer. Therefore, because you have been unfaithful in paying your vow a crack is created for Satan to operate through and bring destruction. Look back over your life and see which vow you have not kept. It may be a pledge to give some money you made on the spur of the moment- it is still a vow. 
 
 
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, bring back to my remembrance every vow I have made in the past and I receive power and grace to fulfil them in Jesus’ name. Amen!
