29 October 2023: PRAYER AS A KEY PILLAR FOR A VICTORIOUS CHRISTIAN LIFE – Matthew 6:7-13; John 16:24-25; Acts 2:41-47


For the next three days, we will look at a few reminders on the subject of prayer as one of the pillars of enforcing the covenant upon your life as a believer and for a victorious Christian life. Mastering how to pray is crucial for a life of victory. Praying involves saying something to someone. It involves opening your mouth and saying something. Jesus said, “When ye pray, say… (Luk. 11:2).” Many people in great prayer meetings keep crying, “Jesus, Jesus” when they are asked to pray, while some just get emotional and roll on the ground without saying anything. If you are praying, you must say something.

As powerful as praying in tongues is, there are times you must say something in your understanding to your Father when you really want to pray.

For instance, if your father calls you and asks what you need, but you just keep quiet and continue smiling or praising him, he can’t give you anything. Many people come to the place of prayer and Heaven is alert, waiting for what they will say, but they just shout and cry, “Jesus! Jesus!!” You may think those people are prayer warriors, but Heaven is saying they have not said anything. The angels will return to God and say, “Lord, he was just calling Jesus’ name and said nothing”.

Prayer time is a time for you to open your mouth. You cannot pray in your thoughts. God wants you to open your mouth to pray and ask whatsoever you desire according to His will, and you will see the power and possibility available to you in prayer (1 Joh. 5:14).

PRAYER: I reject the spirit of a complainer. I receive the spirit of grace and supplication upon me, in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Lamentations 1:1-2:22; Philemon 1:1-25; Psalm 101:1-8; Proverbs 26:20
