If you are a follower of this blog then I am certain you know that the place of prayer is the place of communion with God. Sometimes I am afraid that I have worn you out with this topic but please accommodate me because that is our one sure battle ground, that place where we would ultimately always win. God already empowered us to win every battle fought on this turf as long as we do all that we need to do. Beyond that though is the fact that every believer should long to commune with God and prayer is that place of communion. So whenever God is meeting with man, it is prayer taking place so that one form of prayer or the other ought to take place consistently in our lives. Indeed in spiritual warfare, one is still meeting with God but in warfare, God joins forces with God to enforce victory against the enemy. Whether it is worship, thanksgiving or joining forces with Him to enforce the victory He already won for us; it would be prayer in various forms. It could even be God speaking whilst man listens. The point is man is communing with His God. Prayer is therefore, that place where man rubs mind with God allowing his mind to be influenced or impacted by God. Hence it is impossible for any man who prays very often to remain the same. He is constantly being changed; becoming more and more like God.
2 Corinthians 10: 3 “We are humans but we don’t wage war as humans do.”
God expressed a strong desire to enjoy communion with man in Jesus shedding His blood and ensured that every regenerated man has in his DNA a yearning for communion with His maker and/or Father. So our God is never tired of hearing us as some would like us to believe; He longs to commune with us. I am aware that we often make fun of people who we think pray too often; we act like believers don’t need to pray to make good success of their lives and fulfill their destiny but the truth is, it is only to the extent that one communes with God that one is able to enjoy the benefits of the victory that Christ worked for us by living and dying on earth. Every step forward for a believer is evidence of victory because there is an enemy whose job it is to frustrate our every move forward in life. The times we live in are tough; only those who know their God can do exploits. Prayer does get tedious sometimes, even just “busyness” and challenges of life make it difficult to pray; but these are all tricks of the enemy working through our flesh to keep us from our Father and the place of strength.
2 Corinthians 10: 4 “We use God’s mighty weapons, not worldly weapons, to knock down the strongholds of human reasoning and to destroy false arguments.”
Moreover, for a believer to operate in dominion, as is our mandate, we need information that only God can give us. Our relationship with God gives us the added advantage of accessing privileged information known to God alone and cannot be accessed by the ordinary man but would put us far ahead of the ordinary man if correctly applied. Countries are known as powerful because they are well informed and use the information they have to their advantage. Spending time with Him sharpens our hearing making it easier for us to receive all the information we need to facilitate our greatness so the devil works to frustrate that communion using our flesh. Sometimes we are even deceived into thinking we can resolve our issues faster than God would so we would rather try resolving ourselves instead of praying. Such thoughts are suggestions from the enemy. These are all distractions, meant to frustrate us and kill our desire to commune with our maker.
Luke 18: 1 “One day Jesus told his disciples a story to show that they should always pray and never give up.”
We need to pray now more than ever before. There are things happening even in this Country that make it compelling to call on He who alone can deliver us. God has already started a work that needs to be perfected but He always desires intercession. Women, as scriptures show, have been an integral part of God’s move; it remains the same today. When women sincerely and deeply commune with God, heaven has not been known to remain unmoved. So please come out to God’s Favorite House on Saturday 10th October from 9qm – 3pmso that together we can, on a Pentecostal platform, call on God concerning our families, nation and society. God’s Favorite House is behind Wesley Methodist Church, immediately after the 2nd Lekki Toll gate which is in front of Chevron on Lekki-Epe Expressway. Please come and bring a friend too.
