Dr. Daniel Kolawole Olukoya(DKO).
Memory Verse: James 5:16
The effectual fervent prayer of the righteous availeth much.
Faith and prayer are vitamins of the soul; man cannot live in health without them.
Prophetic Word for Today:
By righteousness and unwavering faith, you will enjoy the wonders and fruits of prayer, in the name of Jesus.
Fire Scripture: Mark 11:12-24
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.
17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.
18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.
19 Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, and shall teach men so, he shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven: but whosoever shall do and teach them, the same shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven.
20 For I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven.
21 Ye have heard that it was said of them of old time, Thou shalt not kill; and whosoever shall kill shall be in danger of the judgment:
22 But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.
23 Therefore if thou bring thy gift to the altar, and there rememberest that thy brother hath ought against thee;
24 Leave there thy gift before the altar, and go thy way; first be reconciled to thy brother, and then come and offer thy gift.
25 Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.

MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL FOR 1ST DECEMBER 2023
As a New Testament believer today, there are still a lot to learn on prayer. The more knowledge you have about prayer and the more you pray, the more of its benefits heaven will release to you. For your prayer to be effective and prevailing, there are some tools that you need to possess. We shall examine them one after another. The first tool is righteousness. You must be born again, have right standing with God and live consistently in His will for your prayers to produce amazing results.
The Bible affirms that the eyes of the Lord are upon the righteous and His ears are always open to their cry. The word of God also says that the effectual fervent prayer of the righteous. availeth much (James 5:16). Those who eschew sin and embrace holiness as well as complete obedience will always have great testimonies in the place of prayer.
The second tool you need for your prayer to be effective and prevailing is faith. The Bible says that it is impossible to please God without faith. The truth is that faith occupies a central positioning God’s kingdom. It is the courageous trust in the ability of God to do all things, including what you desire. The word of God affirms that all things are possible to those who have faith.
Beloved, your must have faith that produces miracles and testimonies now, not later. One of Lazarus’ sisters would have missed the miracle Jesus performed in raising Lazarus if not for the mercy of God. She said that if Jesus had arrived earlier, Lazarus, would not have died and that He would raise Lazarus on the last day. Her faith was not activated for receiving the miracle of raising Lazarus to life there and then. It was tied to a later date or many years to come. She was wrong!
Always put your faith to work and have positive expectation as the woman with the issue of blood did. Faith is the essential spiritual tool for the change you desire. The Bible says, “If you have faith and do not doubt, you will say to this mountain, be removed and be cast in to the sea and you will have what you say” (Matthew 21:21).
