TEXT: Luke 18: 1-8
KEY VERSE: Philippians 4:8 Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.
There are two things that are important in prayer:
i. Make sure that whatever you are asking for is in line with the scriptures. Something that it is in purity and holiness – good, clean and not damaging to the cause of Christ. Make sure it conforms to the will of God. These are the things to pray on because they are in God's will.
ii. Know that God hears you. God has prepared Himself and has cleared the sky for the prayer of the righteous to ascend as the sacrifice of Abel. Your prayers will go up straight and acceptably to God. Praise the Lord! As you are praying He is hearing. Knowing that He is hearing, wait patiently for the answer. Just go and wait for the answer. I'm assuring you that the answer is on the way. The answer will meet you in the Church, in the house, on the way, at your work place, at school. Yes, just get ready for it!
As you have a great opportunity this day, make a special request. You have worked and laboured and God has seen your diligence. God wants to bestow some good things upon your life; He wants to pour some good blessings upon your life.
What do you want? Anointing is coming your way! Open your mouth and pray WHAT DO YOU WANT? Begin to ask. Something special is happening to you. Some good things are coming your way. Some positive changes are coming to your life.
The Lord Himself is saying to you: “Ask, what I shall give thee.” What do you want? God has given me the license to bestow upon you what you want. God has given me the authority to give to your life what you want.
God has given me the power to make a difference in your life, a difference in your ministry; God has instructed me to put anointing somewhere, and I ask: what do you want?” God was the One speaking through Elijah to give this prayer challenge to Elisha.
Elisha replied: “A double anointing, double power; double miracle; double wonders – double everything! I want double grace, everything in double form.
Thought for the day:
Make sure that whatever you are asking for is in line with the scriptures.
Song for the day:
When I remember His promises, I shout Alleluia
