Topic: Pray Over Everything [02/11/2016]
Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Philippians 4:6. Read: Matt 6:25-34
Prayer remains one of the potent weapons available to believers to living a life of peace and joy in this troubled world. God never tells us to worry about anything but to pray over everything be it minor or major. 1 Pt 5:7 says, "Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you". We can only do this by praying not by murmuring over issues of life. Prayer change! A wise man once said, "worry gives you work to do and adds nothing to you, rather takes away your peace and joy". This means that, worrying over everything instead of praying over them robs you of your peace of mind. In the place of prayer you find solace in Christ Jesus. Listen, no man can grow above his/her prayer life.
Jabez prayed over his sorrow, God removed it. 1 Chro 4:9-10. David prayed over the Philistines invasion, God answered him. 1 Sam 30:1-8. King Hezekiah prayed against Shennacherib's threat, God defeated him. Isa 36,37. The Church prayed on behalf of Peter in the prison, God delivered him. Acts 12. Paul and Silas prayed in their chains and God rescued them. Acts 16:25-26. Elijah prayed with thanksgiving and fire fell to vindicate him. 1 kgs 18:36-38. The same God is still alive to answer all your prayers too. Present that challenge to Him now. Worry less and pray more with thanksgiving.
* If there are men to send prayers to heaven, there is a God to send blessings down to earth. Hallelujah!
