TOPIC: Persistent Prayer (Repeated) (Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 12 September 2020)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 1 Chronicles 1-2
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Daniel 10:8-15 (KJV)
8 Therefore I was left alone, and saw this great vision, and there remained no strength in me: for my comeliness was turned in me into corruption, and I retained no strength.
9 Yet heard I the voice of his words: and when I heard the voice of his words, then was I in a deep sleep on my face, and my face toward the ground.
10 And, behold, an hand touched me, which set me upon my knees and upon the palms of my hands.
11 And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent. And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling.
12 Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.
13 But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.
14 Now I am come to make thee understand what shall befall thy people in the latter days: for yet the vision is for many days.
15 And when he had spoken such words unto me, I set my face toward the ground, and I became dumb.
MEMORY VERSE: “And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last:” – Revelation 1:17
Life has no duplicate.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
EVERY FIRE THAT THE ENEMY CANNOT COPE WITH, LET THAT FIRE ENVELOPE YOU NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
The weapon of persistent prayer produces outstanding results.
This is the type of prayer that Daniel prayed for 21 days on a particular issue. He refused to give up until he received an answer. He just kept praying until after 21 days when the angel of the Lord came to him and said: “Daniel, since the first day, the Lord answered but when I was bringing the reply, the prince of Persia met me and has been fighting with me”. If Daniel had stopped praying, the angel would not have had enough power to come with answers to him.
This incident in the Bible shows that there are three heavens. There is the heaven which we call the sky or firmament; where we see the sun, the moon, etc. The second heaven is where evil spirits reside. Remember, the Bible talks about spiritual wickedness in high places. This is the headquarters of principalities and powers. Then, there is the third heaven, the throne of God. Prayer becomes hard sometimes, because it has to pass through the first and second heavens, before it gets to the third heaven. Evil forces try their best to prevent it from passing through to the third heaven. It must struggle to get there before the expected miracle can happen. To obtain an answer to your prayer, the prayer has to reach the third heaven. Hence, the need for persistent and persevering prayers. There is praying in the spirit and praying with understanding.
When you are praying with understanding, you do it with your brain, your mind and your intelligence. You are limited by your vocabulary or your knowledge. But, if you are in the spirit, you connect to the power that brings confusion into the camp of the devil. If you cannot pray in the spirit, you need to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit. You must therefore covet it, until you are so baptised.

- I cover everything within me, everything around me and everything over me now, with the blood of Jesus.
- Let demonic serpents be rendered venom-less in every area of my life, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou serpent of impossibility, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Thou serpent and scorpion of affliction, die, in the name of Jesus.
- Every serpent and scorpion anointed against my destiny, dry up and die, in the name of Jesus.
