Right from the creation of Adam till now the world has neglected prayer and resulted to unproductive means to solve problems. Everything is believed to be solved by theories, facts and figures, assumptions, historical events, physical knowledge, metaphysics, philosophy or other forms of experimental studies. For everything that happens on planet earth is masterminded by the spiritual. The spiritual controls the physical. Revelational knowledge proves that the greatest force under heaven is the force of prayer.
I have seen wireless connections like the mobile phones, internet gadgets, electronic mediums like the plastic television, remote control, high-tech equipment and various techs with wireless connection. They are great investments and inventions to mankind. Most times there is a magnetic force that enables these things to function, so is prayer. Prayer does not have a magnetic force but a spiritual force that when wired to heaven can produce immediate result and miraculous happenings.
Most people find it very hard to pray, they don’t have a prayer pattern. They believe what will be will be. Even when they pray, they pray to deities, gods, grandmasters, idols, goddesses, marine spirits, ancient statutes, monumental shrines, ancestors, ancient temples and other visible and invisible forces.
A lot of people from diverse regions of the earth depending on their believe pray to a god they believe exists. These prayers are channelled through various means either by rituals, worship, incantation, devotion and cultural methods which may not be mentioned. People pray to the known and unknown depending on what they believe. Yet, one thing I have discovered even when they pray to their gods is that the gods heed their prayer and sometimes do not.
Irrespective of the fact that we have atheists and heathens, it cannot remove the truth that we have the Most High God. When those who believe in God Almighty pray to Him there is a wireless connection greater than any force the human mind could comprehend.
Jesus conquered on earth because He was fervent in prayer, Joshua prayed and the sun stood still, Moses prayed and parted the Red sea, David prayed and conquered nations, Jonah prayed and the big fish vomited him, Jabez prayed and became prosperous, Paul and Silas prayed and the angel took them out of prison, Abraham prayed and God gave him Isaac. What else can we say about Elijah, Elisha, Jehoshaphat and other people who put their faith in prayer and got heavenly results.
Then what is prayer? Prayer is a communication between the created and the Creator. If you want to hear God go to Him in prayer, if you want to move mountains start praying, if you think life has come to a limit of no return, get to your knees and pray. The situation in your life refuses to seize because you have not tendered your supplications to Him. Never neglect the power of prayer. Prayer is a weapon God gave those who believe in Him. Develop the spirit of prayer in your house, work, business, church, organisation, marriage, academics, nation and endeavors.
Romans 12:12 says,
rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer.
When you refuse to pray you become a prey to the enemy. Prayer makes you spiritually alert, it makes you vibrant in the realm of the spirit, it makes God fight your battles, it paves way for breakthrough and miracles.
When you are prayerless you tend to loose blessings coming to you. When the enemy wants to strike you he makes you ignorant of prayer. Many believers find it hard to pray. They are engulfed by the activities of life that they forget to communicate with God. They only pray when they have problems, when they find themselves in a difficult situation, when they know there is none to run to. They only pray when all hope is lost.
A true believer in Christ is he that puts on the armor of God, that he may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil (Ephesians 6:11,13).
Pray without ceasing and without season.
May God give you the strength to pray. If you have prayed before now probably those things that happened would not have happened. Pray out yourself from whatever that is holding you bound, pray yourself into a new dawn.
