With Great Joy in my heart, I welcome you to a new month and another new week, I know you were blessed by last month’s edition, to God be the glory.
This week we are looking at the place for constant prayers. In my personal study of the Bible, the word of God, I came across (1st peter 5:8) Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world”.
This portion of the scripture did not only reviled to me the reality of a spiritual warfare, but also the constant nature of it, the phrase “because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” speaks and connotes a state of constancy, if you remember in the conversation between God and Satan in (Job 2:1-2) “Again there was a day when the sons of God came to present themselves before the Lord, and Satan came also among them to present himself before the Lord. And the Lord said unto Satan, From whence comest thou? And Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it”,
From these scriptures I saw that Satan the devil and his cohort are carrying out their activities and operations on a constant basis, and looking also at the world we live in today, we can see that it is bedeviled and characterized of constant manifestations of evil and wickedness, right from our homes to our families, relationships, businesses even to our walk with God, we can perceive the constant activities of the powers of darkness.
From this scriptures also, I saw that prayer is one of our major weapon, it says be sober, be vigilant, and it is through constant prayers that we will be able to overcome,”… whom resist steadfast.,”
Friends, it is from these revelations and observations that I got the leading in my spirit to share with us on the place for constant prayers, prayer generates a spiritual force that can break through the clouds of darkness, and shatter the plans and works of Satan in our lives, with constant prayers one’s life can never be at the at the mercy of the devil. If there anything we should do constantly it should be prayer, it can never be too much, like it is said “Whatever is good requires prayer, and that which is not yet okay also requires prayer”
“And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not faint”(Luke 18:1)
When we pray constantly our minds are constantly freed of fears, and constant prayer brings us close to God and causes us to constantly see nothing but possibilities, we can constantly enjoy God’s practical manifestations in our lives just by constantly praying to God in painful and dreadful moments. How constant we prevail will be determined by how constant we travail.
Many of those who constantly become prey in life are those who are not constant in their prayers. Friend there is a place for constant prayers and it’s place can never be over emphasized, The Apostle Paul in 1st Thess 5:17, echoed this truth when he said “pray without ceasing” whatever keeps you constantly out of prayers, keeps you constantly out of victory, how constant are prayers?. There is nothing we can substitute for prayers, we have to deliberately begin to pray constantly . Thanks, Do Have A Blessed Week And Please Stay Hopeful.
