The place of prayer is the place of communion with God. One form of prayer or the other ought to take place when man meets with God. 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 prayer is man communing with God. Prayer is therefore, where man rubs mind with God allowing his mind to be influenced or impacted by God. No wonder no man who prays often, remains the same; he is constantly being changed to be like God. 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 to have us believe; He longs to commune with us.
I Corinthians 3: 18 “So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord-who is the Spirit-makes us more and more like Him as we are changed into His glorious image.”
Very often, people try to make a joke of prayer. They make it appear like believers don’t need to pray to be successful and live life to the fullest but that would be lying to ourselves. It is only to the extent that one communes with God that we have victory and live life as God ordained. The times we live in are tough; only those who know their God can do exploits. 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 which the ordinary man is unable to access. Our ability to access this information is sharpened by our relationship with the Trinity.
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.”
Prayer does get tedious sometimes. Sometimes 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. Sometimes we are even deceived into thinking we can resolve our issues faster than God would so we would rather try instead of praying. These are all distractions, meant to frustrate us and kill our desire to commune with our maker. Also, receiving information from God places us at an advantage because information is powerful, though we must learn to correctly apply the information, so the devil works to ensure we don’t commune with God thereby ensuring that we are unable to access information which makes him seem powerful. Countries are known as powerful because they are well informed and use the information they have to their advantage.
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. 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 the Standard Alliance Event Centre at No. 1 Providence Street, off Adewunmi Adebimpe drive off 2nd Lekki roundabout by Standard Chartered Bank on Saturday 18thOctober from 9am prompt to 3pm so that together we can, on a Pentecostal platform, call on God concerning our families, nation and society.
