Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny, 3 June 2020 – More Understanding About Prayer By Pastor Paul Enenche
SCRIPTURE: Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:11-13.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: At the place of prayer, we access what is given to us by God.
It is very clear in life and also from the Scripture that understanding is key to outstanding life and destiny. Every venture in life becomes outstanding with understanding. Peter stood out from the rest of the disciples because of his understanding of the Master, Jesus (Matthew 16:15-19).
In the same manner, understanding the subject of prayer is key to maximizing the benefits of prayer and standing out in life.
Earlier, we saw what prayer entails. We noted that prayer is the platform for communion between God and man; the platform for the offering of thanks, praise and worship to God and also the platform for the establishment of the rule and will of God in the earth.
Now, we shall look at three other things that prayer entails:
1. Prayer is a platform for accessing our inheritance in God (Matthew 6:11).
“…Give us this day our daily bread…”entails accessing our inheritance in God. At the place of prayer, we access what is given to us by God. We connect what God has in store for us at the place of prayer. Prayer gives us the platform to access our inheritance in God.
2. Prayer is a platform for the maintenance of true holiness and Godliness (Matthew 6:12).
“…And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors…” This means, at the place of prayer, we receive cleansing. At the place of prayer, we ask God to forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespassed against us. Prayer keeps people from sin, and sin keeps people from praying. At the place of prayer, we receive the maintenance of true holiness and Godliness.
3. Prayer is a platform for the frustration or the abortion of the agenda of the enemy (Matthew 6:13a).
“…And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil…” This means, prayer is the platform for the frustration or the abortion of the agenda of the enemy in the lives of people. It is at the place of prayer that we arrest the enemy’s recklessness. At the place of prayer, we intersect, interfere, and interrupt satanic operations and orchestrations. At the place of prayer, we are delivered from evil; we are made to escape evil.
Beloved, you can see that prayer is beyond just going to God because there is a need; prayer is multifaceted. So, make up your mind to maximize the multifaceted dimensions and benefits of prayer.
Remember this: At the place of prayer, we access what is given to us by God.
1. Access your inheritance in God through prayer.
2. Make up your mind to maintain a right standing with God at the place of prayer.
3. Frustrate the activities of the enemy at the place of prayer.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for showing me today the multifaceted dimensions of prayer. I receive Your Help Lord, to live a buoyant prayer life. At the place of prayer, I access my inheritance, maintain holiness of life and frustrate the enemy’s agenda, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
