TOPIC: THE NECESSITY OF PRAYER (II)
Fire Scripture: Luke 11:1-13
OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 14TH JANUARY 2021 TODAY’S MESSAGE
The necessity of prayer can never be over-emphasised. Prayer is man’s greatest power. It is the key to all the treasures of this life and the hereafter. A day without prayer is a day without blessing and a life without prayer is a life without power. An old hymn says “Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer that calls me from a world of care…” Our memory verse for today says, “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” The most effective way by which you can tell God your problems is through prayer.
When you go into your prayer closet, you forget every other thing and talk to God in total reverence and perfect submission. For your prayers to be effective, they must be said in Jesus’ name. The reason is that Jesus’ name is the only name approved by God for believers and unbelievers to approach Him. Secondly, you must be living in God’s will if you expect Him to answer your prayers. God will give you what you ask for only if your desires are in harmony with His will and you have the right and pure motive (Ps 19:14).
Thirdly, you must have true and sincere faith that God hears your prayers, has the ability to accomplish what you ask and will do what He knows is good for you. Jesus states clearly: “What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” (Mark 11:24). To the father of a demon-possessed boy, He said: “All things are possible to him that believeth” (Mark 9:23). Believing is imperative when we pray.
Beloved, prayer is not child’s play, but a serious matter for those who mean business with God and know that, they are coming out better. So when you do not feel like praying, that is when prayer is needed most. Pray, so that you won’t have to pray when it is too late!
Memory Verse: Philippians 4:6 – “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God”
Motivational Quote: Pray so that you won’t have to be forced by circumstances to pray.
Prophetic Word: The divine engine of prayer shall descend upon you by ﬁre.
HYMN: Sweet Hour Of Prayer
1. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
That calls me from a world of care,
And bids me at my Father’s throne
Make all my wants and wishes known:
In seasons of distress and grief,
My soul has often found relief,
And oft escaped the temter’s snare
By thy return, sweet hour of prayer.
2. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
Thy wings shall my petition bear
To Him whose truth and faithfulness
Engage the waiting soul to bless:
And since He bids me seek His face,
Believe His Word, and trust His grace,
I’ll cast on Him my ev’ry care,
And wait for thee, sweet hour of prayer.
3. Sweet hour of prayer, sweet hour of prayer,
May I thy consolation share,
Till from Mount Pisgah’s lofty height
I view my home and take my ﬂight;
This robe of ﬂesh I’ll drop, and rise
To seize the everlasting prize,
And shout, while passing thru the air,
“Farewell, farewell sweet hour of prayer!”
1. Powers attacking my spiritual life, die by ﬁre, in the name of Jesus.
2. O Lord, let the enemies of my prayer life be confounded and disgraced, in the name of Jesus.
3. Vision killers, I stop you before you stop me, in the name of Jesus.
4. Miracle that surpasses my understanding, manifest at my prayer altar, in the name of Jesus.
5. Power to pray until something happens, fall upon me, in the name of Jesus.
6. Power to mount up as eagles, fall upon my prayer life, in the name of Jesus.
7. Anything in my life that does not reﬂect God, come out and die, in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Job 38-39
