TOPIC: Your Mouth, Your Heart, Your Prayer (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 1 November 2019)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Jeremiah 24-26; Titus 2
FIRE SCRIPTURE: James 3:2-10
MEMORY VERSE: “Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O LORD, my strength, and my redeemer.” –Psalms 19:14
Prayer is a vital key to a successful Christian life. One of the tools of fervent prayer is the mouth, the vehicle of communication through which a Christian will cry to God in prayer. Also, the heart of man is equally important in this regard. Why? Every word that is uttered is a product of the heart. Jesus said, “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks” (Matthew 12:34). If we must pray fervently and unceasingly according to Luke 18:1 and 1 Thessalonians 5:17, then the mouth and the heart must be in good and healthy spiritual condition. This is because it takes a clean heart to process and produce the right words in prayer. The Psalmist declared, “If I regard iniquity in my heart the Lord will not hear me” (Psalm 66:18).
This is a fact you should consider: whenever you come to the place of prayer, your mouth and heart should be in a state of purity and divinely aligned to give thanks and praise unto God as well as offer sweet smelling offerings that will be acceptable to God at the altar of prayer. David in Psalm 24 asked a very pertinent question: “Who will ascend unto the hill of the Lord…” He was stating the qualifications of those who should stand before the Lord in prayer. These include: those with pure hearts, clean hands, souls that have not been lifted to vanity, and mouths that have not been deceitful. The question is this: Are you qualified to go before the throne of God? Or are you like Joshua the High priest, who was standing before the altar in filthy garment? A sign of pollution! Little wonder, the accuser of brethren, satan was there ready to accuse him before God. But thank God for the mercy that availed for him. The same will avail for you if you will surrender your heart and mouth to the purging power in the blood of Jesus and sanctifying power of the Holy Ghost.
Desist from using your mouth wrongly, telling lies and speaking evil of others. Desist from slander, blackmail and all kinds of filthy communication. Let no negative thoughts find a place in your heart. Guard your hearts against all negative encroachments. Ensure your thoughts are pure and clean before going into the place of prayer. Pray the humble prayer of the Psalmist.
As you take these necessary steps, God will answer your prayers and the heaven of breakthroughs shall be open unto you, in Jesus’ name.
BE DILIGENT ABOUT YOUR WORK AND TRUST GOD FOR THE RESULTS. FRUIT NEEDS TIME IN THE SUN TO RIPEN.
Any power that is assigned to prevent the word of God from growing and bearing fruits in your life shall die.
1 Father, consecrate and sanctify my mouth. Make it fit to offer prayer and praise to You, in the name of Jesus.
2 My Father, purge my heart of iniquity and all impurities, in the name of Jesus.
3 My Father, make my heart a good soil where Your word can grow and bear fruits hundred fold, in Jesus’ name.
4 I eject thorns from my heart, in the name of Jesus.
5 By the blood of Jesus, I kill fleshly lust in me, in the name of Jesus.
6 Anything assigned to choke and kill the word of God in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
7 My life will not be unfruitful for the Lord, in the name of Jesus.
