Prayer, The Move Of God
In verse 1.... He spoke a parable to them to this end that Men always ought to pray and not to faint Luke.18:1 Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart,
Luke.18:2 saying: "There was in a certain city a judge who did not fear God nor regard man.
Luke.18:3 Now there was a widow in that city; and she came to him, saying, "Get justice for me from my adversary.'
Luke.18:4 And he would not for a while; but afterward he said within himself, "Though I do not fear God nor regard man,
Luke.18:5 yet because this widow troubles me I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me."'
Luke.18:6 Then the Lord said, "Hear what the unjust judge said.
Luke.18:7 And shall God not avenge His own elect who cry out day and night to Him, though He bears long with them?
Luke.18:8 I tell you that He will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless, when the Son of Man comes, will He really find faith on the earth?"
Prayer is the move of God Without prayer, there be no awaking No revival We do fear that we are doing more of other things than prayer Men ought to pray and not to faint.
A man is designed to be an object of Prayer. Men are meant to live by prayer.... We are created to survive by the art of prayer The Christian today is doing many things well but prayer If you, as a Christian, You live any other way apart from being a man of prayer, then something is wrong If you must carry God.... Then you must be a man of prayer If you are not a man o prayer...
You can't move the hand of God Prayer is the only art that you done need to learn You learn to pray by praying Secret prayer is the birth place of Revival This is not a praying age; it is an age of great activity, of great movements, but one in which the tendency is very strong to stress the seen and the material and to neglect and discount the unseen and the spiritual A Prayer is taken for granted because we have not known that without it, little or nothing can be achieved.
You will feeble if you don't live by the embers of prayer. This is because prayer is the citadel of God. It holds every other thing together Prayer is the greatest of all forces, because it honors God and brings Him into active aid. Without prayer, You cannot be active in the program of God There can be no substitute, no rival for prayer; it stands alone as the great spiritual force, and this force must be imminent and acting. If you substitute prayer with any other thing, then know that you won't carry the banner of God to your generation. It is being a man devoted to prayer that will make you a man that God uses We cannot run our spiritual operations on the prayers of the past generation.
The past generations used prayer to usher in a move of God We can't use motivational speech to usher in the move of God in our generation God will only in a generation that are devoted to prayer Many persons believe in the efficacy and power of prayer, but not many pray Prayer is not theory It is not reading about prayer.
Prayer is actually PRAYING.
Tonight I want to stir your spirit up.... Because you cannot experience revival without being a devoted man of prayer, This experience came this afternoon because I took out time to pray.
I hear God well, but there are depths in God.
This afternoon , I took out some time to pray for 3 hours... All of a sudden, I sensed the presence of a Spirit by my left then I felt his hand on my left ear.... And I heard in my spirit... "from now, You will start hearing from the left ear. This is a new dimension of hearing in the spirit ".... I didn't experience this because I was watching a movie or doing other activities.
I experience that because I was taking out time to pray A man of prayer will have encounters that others will never have Prayer is the easiest and hardest of all things; the simplest and the sublimest; the weakest and the most powerful; its results lie outside the range of human possibilities—they are limited only by the omnipotence of God.
Another day I was praying and I noticed that I was floating in the air. Both me and the chair I was sitting on was floating in the air.
This are possibilities if you leave everything and chase God Prayer looks simple... But it is the most potent in the Christian faith Prayer looks weak...But it is the hand that draws down Jehovah.
The possibilities of prayer are limitless Everything we pursue in the chambers of secret prayers Why are we less a praying generation? Because we don't understand that prayer is actually everything. Prayer is our most formidable weapon, but the one in which we are the least skilled, the most averse to its use... In spite of the benefits and blessings which flow from communion with God, the sad confession must be made that we are not praying much. If you give yourself to praying fervently daily...
You will become Super-Natural We only know it by theory.
Prayer is the hardest because the benefits are
the richest Today our distractions have increased TV, The internet, Facebook,
Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, Etc.
If only we can shut down these distractions, we can be a people that carry the presence of God Our people are not essentially a praying people. That is evident by their lives. We live as we are pleased... That's not the life that the father wanted.
designed to live by the leading of a Spirit.
By the leading of the Spirit of God. That is why the Bible says, men ought always to prayer.... Because the more you prayer, the more intimacy you develop with the Spirit. Men ought always to prayer and not to faint....
➢The opposite of prayerfulness is not prayerlessness.
The opposite of prayer is fainting When you are not given to prayer, You loose awareness of what's happening in the spirit realm. What does it mean to faint?
•It means to loose awareness of your environment.
•It means to loose consciousness.
•To be inactive And you become inactive with the activities of the spirit You loose consciousness the times and seasons. Prayer is the move of God! Prayer and a holy life are one. They mutually act and react. Neither can survive alone.
The absence of the one is the absence of the other When you stop praying, you start living in sin Prayer takes away an ability to dwell in sin Because you will be clothed with a grace for holy living Unholy living is a result of prayerlessness or fainting Unholy living comes because you have left your secret place
➢If your leave your secret place, you will live in secret sin.
•Secret sin fights secret prayer
•Holy living flows from a heart saturated by the aroma of prayer
•Secret prayers disarms secret sin
•Masturbation is empowered because there no fire on the altar.
•Holy and saintly living flows from a heart saturated with the incense of holy prayer.
•Every secret sin is empowered by prayerlessness or fainting. ➢Is either you are a man of prayer, or you are a man who lives in secret sin.
•Praying and sinning cannot go hand-in-hand. One or the other must, of a necessity stop Spirits are shocked that men don't pray 4 hours a day The benefits of prayer are too great that spirits are surprised that men don't by prayer Spirits are shocked when men survive outside the parameters of prayer Even the devil is impressed by our prayerlessness. He keeps wondering how we are able to stay that way
•The Holy Spirit is also known as the Spirit of supplication. Why? Because He is a praying spirit.
▪A Spirit that prays.
