How can you say you love someone if you don’t know his interest. God’s prime interest is to see everyone saved. The kingdom of hell is not meant for humans, it’s meant for devil and his cohorts. “After this manner pray ye: our father who art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.” Mat.6:9.
That Lord’s prayer thought us to pray kingdom oriented prayers everyday with a minimum of one hour daily, either at a stretch or in a split of 30mins per session. “And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and said unto Peter, What, could you not watch with me one hour?” Mat.26:40. Prayer is the cheapest way to occupy till the coming of our lord Jesus Christ. “And he called his ten servants, and delivered them ten pounds, and said unto them, occupy till I come.” Lk.19:13
We shall be Praying for the destruction of all influences and manipulations of the devil against the convictions and the conversions of the lost and unsaved souls across our harvest field.
Praying for the destruction of all the gates of hell against the continuous growth and expansion of the kingdom.
Praying for the word of God to increase on our altar. While miracle brings people into the kingdom, the word of God sustained them. Without a nourishing God’s word, they’ll receive miracle, go and never come back, not even to come back to give thanks. “And the word of God increased; and the numbers of discuss multiplied in Jerusalem greatly; and a great company of the priest were obedient to the faith.” Act.6:7.
Let’s stop placing all kinds of demands on God. He knew that we need all these things. What we are going to eat, wear or spend are always clamouring for attentions. Do you know that some believers minds race from one issue to the other while when they are praying. Issues like: how to discipline a disrespectful wife with a rude manners, how to pay the children school fees. Thereby tendering the whole process ineffective.
Most of the things we called prayer are ordinary noise, and complains. God wants you to seek and pursue his interest first and all your heart desires will be running after you. That is the divine arrangement. “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” Mat.6:33. God has not called you to meditate on your problems, he has called you to meditate on his word. Get God committed to the service of your needs by committing yourself to the service of his interests.
Until you make the interest of God primary and every other things secondary, your struggles and toiling in life continue perpetually. Connect to this prayer revival. Praying kingdom advancement prayer as a lifestyle is the gateway to ceased from all fruitless labour. You think your appearance In church is by chance, somebody prayed you. You too must birth somebody into Christ by prayer.
One man’s prayer can birth a whole nation for Christ at once, can empty the whole city for Jesus until no one is following the devil in our territory any longer. “Who hath heard such thing? Who hath seen such thing? Shall earth be made to bring forth in one day? Or shall a nation be born at once? For as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.” Is.66:8. We are in the era of Church of multitudes. A growing church is a praying Church, in other words, a praying church is a growing church. The church of today is a church flow where unprecedented and record breaking multitudes will be flowing into the church.
“But in the last days it shall come to pass, that the mountain of the house of the Lord shall be established on the top of the mountains, and it shall be exalted above the hills; and people shall flow unto it. And many nations shall come, and say, Come, let us go up to the mountain of the LORD, and to the house of God of Jacob; and he will teach us his ways, and we will walk in his paths: for the law shall go forth to Zion, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.” Micah.4:1-2
Furthermore, prayer just doesn’t change things alone, prayer changes people. When Jesus went to mountain to pray, on his arrival, his disciples could not recognized him, he had been transformed, the fashion of his countenance had been altered. “And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.“Lk.9:29.
Until you labour and travail on the altar of prayer with fervency and faith don’t expect to prevail in life, the storms of life will overcome you that nobody will come to your rescue. I included the word fervency for you to know that it is to every man according to his work.
And finally, you must know that God does not bless and reward group, he blesses and rewards individual based his or her ‘work’ (Serving God is a work). “And, behold; I come quickly my rewards are with me, to give every man according to his work shall be.” Rev.22:12.
