THE CHOSEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL…

TEXT: 1 Thessalonians 5: 17, 2 Timothy 2:1 – 3
THEME: BE PRAYERFUL’.
MEMORIZE: “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint. “(Luke. 18: 1)
In this period of expectation of God’s blessings upon the Chosen ones, there is every need for all the Chosen to be prayerful. The significance of prayer in the life of a Christian cannot be over-emphasized. Prayer enhances the spirituality of a believer. That is why a prayerful Christian is deemed a powerful Christian and vice-versa. Prayer is indispensable to the intent that our Lord and Saviour Jesus admonished on its essence. Prayer enables us to connect God to intervene in any circumstance. The bible tells us of how our fathers of faith conquered all opposition through prayer. Let us therefore follow the same pattern and pray always. Whatsoever is gotten by means of prayer is sustainable by prayer. Through prayer, we stop the fiery darts of the enemy, receive our miracles, tight against our adversary the devil and his agents, fulfill our purpose in life etc, through prayer.
Prayer should be a continuous spiritual exercise here on earth, until one enters heaven. It is necessary for survival and blessings. The devil fears a prayerful Christian and as such prayerful believers are terror to the kingdom of darkness. However, prayer is not to be made in sin. Sin hinders prayer. Therefore, we must abstain from all appearance of evil for our prayers to be answered. In this end time when so much distractions abound, the scriptures informs it is a dangerous time for true believers, when we must rise up to intercede for the unsaved souls, those in authority, for fellow believers, the church, our pastor, leaders and workers that our faith will not fail us.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Any kingdom assigned to cage my prayer life and derail my salvation; catch fire, in Jesus’ name.
2. O God that hears prayer, rekindle your fire afresh in my life; revive the power of prayer of supplication and intercession in my life, in Jesus’ name.
3. By the power and authority in the name and blood of Jesus Christ, I put on the whole armour of God to wage spiritual warfare in these last days, in Jesus’ name
4. Increase the prayer life of our G. O, Mummy in the Lord and The Lord’s Chosen ministry, in Jesus’ name.
