Dunamis’ Daily Devotional May 20, 2017 by Pastor Paul Enenche - The Exemplary Prayer Life of David


Topic: The Exemplary Prayer Life of David [Saturday May 20, 2017]

Scripture: Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice. Psalm 55:17

Thought For The Day: No one can do great things without great prayers.

David was a man of great exploits in the Bible. He killed Goliath and took the reproach off Israel when the Philistines engaged Israel in a battle. According to theologians, David fought sixty-three battles and lost none. Through the power of worship, he cast out the evil spirit that tormented King Saul. He was a king, prophet, psalmist, warrior, war general, etc.

What was the secret of such great exploits?

Apart from being a worshipper, David also prayed in the morning, noon and night. As a result of such lifestyle of prayer, he conquered both the lion and the bear; he was able to carry food (baby goat) from the mouths of lions and they could do nothing.

His secret was ‘Three times a day, no matter how tight the schedule is, I must pray. Morning, noon and evening I must go before God.’ (Psalms 55:17 paraphrased) That was the secret of his exceptional life.

Beloved, prayer is the secret of great exploits. No one can do great things without great prayers. Pay the price to prevail with God at the place of prayer like David. Make prayer your daily habit and exercise; then you will experience great exploits in life.

Remember this: No one can do great things without great prayers.

Assignment (s):

1. Have a consistent prayer schedule daily.

2. Ask God to baptize you with the spirit of prayer.

Prayer: O LORD, I ask for the fresh baptism of the Spirit of prayer. Help me to pray without ceasing, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
