Topic: The Necessity of Maintaining the Prayer Altar [Seeds of Destiny 4 April 2019 Devotional]

Prayer and fasting are two major anchors of spirituality. From our Scripture above, it has been established that the act of prayer (and fasting) must be a habitual and continual process and not an occasional practice. There are two things that happen in the human body without ceasing – the beating of the heart and the breathing in and out of air. So, we are required to pray like we breathe; we are to pray like our heart beats.

SCRIPTURE: Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints; Ephesians 6:18

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Supernatural power bows for the key of prayer.

Prayer and fasting are two major anchors of spirituality. From our Scripture above, it has been established that the act of prayer (and fasting) must be a habitual and continual process and not an occasional practice. There are two things that happen in the human body without ceasing – the beating of the heart and the breathing in and out of air. So, we are required to pray like we breathe; we are to pray like our heart beats.

Now, what does the act of prayer and fasting do?

i. The act of prayer and fasting is doorway to the world of the supernatural (Acts 3:1-7).

The hour of prayer is the hour of power. Supernatural power bows for the key of prayer. Every form of decadence in prayer equals bankruptcy of power.

ii. Prayer and fasting is the principal tool for the nullification of the agenda of hell against the Church; the devil is put in check at the place of prayer (Mathew 17:21).

iii. Prayer and fasting is key to supernatural open door encounters. These are encounters that usher lives into new realms and dimensions in the spirit. These are supernatural, visionary and revelatory encounters (Luke 9:29).

Beloved, prayer is very necessary; your progress in your spiritual life depends on your prayer life amongst other things.

My counsel is, maintain a lifestyle of consistent prayer. Life is a seed, whatever you sow, you also reap; to sow the seed of continual prayer is to reap the harvest of intimacy with God. Let your prayer life be robed with integrity and godliness. Be serious with God and He would be serious with you.

REMEMBER THIS: Supernatural power bows for the key of prayer.

ASSIGNMENTS:

  1. Give priority attention to supplication and intercession.
  2. Pray continually: Refuse the life of prayerlessness.

PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to wait on You in praying and fasting. Lord, I need an encounter from You that will change my life and destiny. Help me to intercede for others as I should, Lord in Jesus’ Name.
