Prayer does a lot for us than most people realize. There’re different kinds of prayer. The beautiful part of prayer is that we have answers. Without answers to prayer, will just be a mare religion.
In this gathering today, we have angels amongst us. The bible shows us so much about the reality of angel. Angels are real. No, we are not talking about your little cousin that does nice things to you and you call her angels. I mean supernatural being. Angels are sent to work for the children of God. The reason I told you this is because they are already working here.
I tell you one important thing about prayer that will help you and also one important thing about miracle.
A very important thing about prayer pointed out to us in the Bible, let’s see it from the Bible. I am so smart because God made me smart
KJV:Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
Prayer and supplication are the same direction, you are asking for something. But God says do it with thanksgiving.
Lots of people are not praying, they are complaining. God isn’t asking you to complain, He wants you to pray.
There are people who suffer for long. Some are in the same condition for 5years,10years, some their life time. They have hope. There are expecting that soon, their condition will change. That’s hope, hope is future. Hope is tomorrow and tomorrow never comes. They need faith, not hope. Without faith, there will be no change.
I have faith and it’s working now.
Hope is tomorrow, it doesn’t change anything. Faith takes a hold of it now, faith makes it now.
KJV:Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:
Jesus was the hope of the nations. He was the hope of Israel, the hope of salvation. Nobody was pure enough for that sacrifice. Jesus came and was crucified in our place. God raise Him up to give us the inheritance. Because God raised Jesus us for us, the hope fulfilled everything that God wanted it to do.
Declare that which you want now in the Name of Jesus. That’s why Jesus gave us his name.
If you had to attend a ticketed event. One you have your ticket, you don’t need to beg to get in. All you needed was the ticket. You can beg all you want if you don’t have a ticket. Jesus is your ticket. Use it.
I am qualified to share in the inheritance of God.
Part of this inheritance is sound health.
3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
Look at this, God’s number one is for you to prosper and be in health. See! It’s right there in the Bible. These are things you discover and say never again will be broke or sick in my life.
Ephesians 5:20KJV:Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
God understands the human nature more than anyone else does. The human brain is divided into two part: the right and the left side.
The left side controls the right side of the body while the right side controls the left part of the body. The left side is used to analyze, calculate and plan.
The right side is the part that spontaneously responds to things. You are either using one or the other. Most use the left side more. That’s the reason they don’t achieve so much.
The right side creates beauty. As a child grow up, the world makes you reason more and more. Just like when you went to school. You were taught to reason and calculate and analyze to produce answers.
Those who give thanks always, have their right side activated. This is reason God wants you to be thankful all the time. Look at those that are always complaining, they look older than their fathers.
Irrespective of the situation, give thanks. Even if your received a letter from your landlord asking you to move out, give thanks! Is your salary being delayed? Give thanks! Those you are more qualified than are getting the job but not you, give thanks! Are you staff or boss not acting right, go into your office and give thanks.
1 These 5:18
KJV:In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.
Did you see that, God isn’t saying that the situation is the will of God concerning you, but giving thanks is God’s will concerning you.
KJV:Jesus said unto him, If thou canst believe, all things are possible to him that believeth.
The Word believe need to be well understood. Some versions put it even simpler. If you can trust.
Miracle does not belong to the reasoning mind. Miracle doesn’t happen to the rational mind, and when it does, they loose it. Miracles happen to a trusting mind.
Miracle always happen when someone is prepared. God doesn’t plan to bless one person and leave the other. According to the Bible, God is a now God. He is the I am.
Today, it doesn’t matter what your condition is, you can have a miracle.
Jesus is a miracle! His conception, death, resurrection was a miracle. Did you know his death was a miracle. An average man will stay of the cross for 13hours. Jesus stated 6 hours and commanded his own death. His accession was another miracle.
KJV:Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
When we walk with the Lord, in the light of His Word, what a glory He sheds on our way. When we do His good will, He abides with us still and with all who will trust and obey.
Trust and obey, for there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus but to trust and obey
When I think of the blessing of Jesus, and all He has done for me. My soul give thanks and shout Hallelujah, praise God for blessing me.
13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
The Bible shows us that some infirmities can be caused by sin. The Bible says we should pray and we will have answers.
