THE ESSENCE OF PRAYER!

As instructed by the Spirit of God to deliver this life time changing message to the expectant congregation; Prophet Abraham Richard Bisaso adhered to the still small voice as a humble Servant and did as commanded.

First off, was the mass prayer which left everyone’s soul rejuvenated and free; followed by the sermon.

THEME: PRAYER!

‘Prayer is not an option but a command’; the Prophet started. “If you love someone, can you go an hour without calling them? No! Meaning, Christians should behave like that if they claim to have a relationship with God.

However, our love for Christ has many questions, yet it is only through prayer that we can have a healthy relationship with God. Believers, if you do not pray, it means you have no relationship with God; for no one can stand strong without prayer.

Look at our forefather Adam; he met with God on a daily. Meaning, there is no law to stop man from praying and meeting with God; because a minute spent in prayer scares the devil away. However, if you do not pray, you make it easy for satan to attack and overcome you.

Therefore, take to note, all Servants of God take ninety percent of their time in prayer and that is why they overcome their enemies.

Question: When you look at your time in a day, how much time do you spend in prayer?

You will come to realize that you do not even have fifteen minutes of prayer on your daily schedule. Then how will you defeat satan and overcome his tricks upon your life?

Believers, with this kind of behavior, the passions of the flesh will automatically dominate your spirit; [lustfulness, corruption, complaining, discouragement, bad dreams to mention but a few] because you are not a man of prayer.

As we mediate, let us look at the fruits of the flesh in the scriptures:

Galatians 5:19-22 [NIV]: 19 The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity, and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft, hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambitions, dissensions, fractions 22and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.

As we share, let us put ourselves right with God. The bible says; Adam met God on a daily basis in the Garden of Eden. Let us also develop such a character of meeting with God on a daily basis through prayer. Your garden is the prayer mountain, your prayer room, heart etc. So make great use of it and meet God.

As you do this, write it upon yourself that this is going to be your lifestyle. Do not just go to cast out what is disturbing you, rather; go in the presence of God with an attitude of being guided on what to do next.

Believers; what casts the devil away is the relationship and power of God within us. When we read the book of Job chapter 1; the LORD asked satan whether he had seen his faithful Servant Job. In response, he told God that he could not touch anything of his because they were one.

This was a clear indication that the relationship Job had with God was strong to an extent of scaring satan away. Meaning, our relationship with God is meant to scare our enemy away. Nevertheless, when it reduces, the devil becomes so happy because it is then that his plans succeed. 

When you read verse 10; it clearly indicates that situations are supposed to attack us but there is someone meant to protect and bring us prosperity, healing, security, protection, fame etal.

Subsequently, this also means that your hard work cannot make you wealthy, all you need to do is work upon having a strong relationship with God so that however little you work, the LORD prospers you.

This message is to every servant, so as you heed to it, take to note that the Spirit of God knows the right time one should pray. I know, someone may be saying that they will wait for the Holy Spirit to tell them when to pray. No! Begin by setting a time for prayer on your tight schedule. Let it be something you do not remove, change or discuss about.

What makes our relationship stronger in God is constantly meeting with HIM; in the morning, afternoon, evening, night, every hour, minute etc. However, if you do not commit your life to prayer, you will achieve nothing in the world.

You can only protect what God has given you with prayer. What protects what God has blessed you with, -healing, calling, vision, marriage, breakthrough, business to mention but a few; is the Prayer that targets to restore your relationship with God.

Satan hates our relationship with God, and it is the reason why he puts things before us to have our attention and fail our concentration on God [Good shinning things]. Conversely, just know who you are and who is before you, and then you will ask Him to assist you.

Prayer: O’ LORD, restore my relationship with you.

Believers, this I am sharing is key because it is the source of trouble in the world today. The minute Adam spent without meeting God brought sin in his life and destroyed his relationship with God. Meaning, the moment one breaks without meeting God in prayer, draws trouble. Prayer may seem small but it is not because it makes one spiritual.

Quick question: What made Jesus keep in prayer at all times? His relationship with God; kept him at prayer. So let this be a lesson for all of us.

It is so unfortunate that there are things you cannot miss out on, like – watching TV, playing,  gossiping, eating, bathing etal; but you can miss prayer. This is wrong believers; let us work to improve this, because living a life of prayer is the best.

What made the men and woman we read about in the bible famous is prayer. Whenever they were happy or sad, they went to prayer. Cornelius, a man who was not a Jew, prayed oftenly at the hour of three to God and still through prayer the angel of God met him. Abraham was met by our Father at the altar during the hour of prayer; King Hezekiah in 2 kings 19 was devoted to prayer too.

Meaning, angels of God meet us at a point of prayer [Acts 10].

As I conclude believers, when Jesus had finished speaking to his disciples, he told them that they had been made clean with what they had heard. Therefore, they should not make themselves unclean. May the LORD bless you, for I believe, with this message, God has spoken to you.

Prayer: Lord Jesus we pray, grant us your spirit of prayer.
