We are starting a new series on prayer. Many untold hardships that people encounter in life can be overcome by holding unto God in PRAYER. Prayer and faith go together. Willingness to receive God’s blessings begins with faith in God, and then we pray because we believe God hears us. We are told in the Epistle to the Hebrews:
“But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” Hebrews 11:6).
Both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible give records of some instances when people showed their willingness to receive divine healing or deliverance. God says in the Book of Isaiah:
“If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah 1:9).
Jesus said to the woman with the issue of blood who received instant healing from her twelve yearlong hemorrhages;
“Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague,” (Mark 5:25-34).
God’s covenant on prayer is that whatever you ask in the name of Jesus shall be given to you. “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you,” (Matthew 7:7).
Your will power is your desire to get released from undesirable situations; to obey God’s command, and do it. If you believe in the Word of God and the miracles that were performed in the past and are still being performed today through Jesus Christ, your desire to receive miracles on your situations will rise, and it will have a great impact in the outcome of your prayers. The Lord is waiting for you today if you will take a step of faith and open your mind to Him on your situation.
Blind Bartimaeus, the son of Timaeus, had a lot of besetting hindrances that could disallow him to reach Jesus; but he continued to shout, ‘Jesus, thou Son of David, have mercy on me,” until Jesus attended to him (Mark 10:46-52). This shows great zeal and perseverance to receive God’s miracle. Willingness to wait upon God until we get our miracle is an antidote against the spirit of doubt and fear. Anyone who reads about the miracles that God performed in the times past will appreciate the supernatural mighty power of the Almighty and will learn to hold on God for a miracle. There are many views about the efficacy of prayers but the fact remains that, if you pray “in Jesus’ name,” God honors it. God will not force anything on you, He is waiting to listen to your request; be willing and obedient to the leading of the Spirit of God. Pray and God will answer you.
