Topic: Supplication for A Lift and Shift In Life [Seeds of Destiny 5 January 2019 Devotional]

Scripture: And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering. Luke 9:29

Thought For The Day: When people are desperate for God, they express it at the place of prayer.

It has been confirmed that there are demands for supernatural liftings and shifting in life. God is interested in lifting His children, but not many people are lifted by God because not everyone meets the demands for supernatural lifting. Now, one of the demands of lifting and shifting in life is supplication.

Supplication is done at the place of prayer; desperation leads to supplication. When people are desperate for God, they express it at the place of prayer.

Now, let me give you two key thoughts on supplication:
i. Prayer changes people more than it changes things.
People think that the purpose of praying is just to change a situation but the man who prays is changed by his prayer (Luke 9:29).

ii. Supplication and intercession would lead to intensification, magnification and amplification.
This means, your life cannot remain little if you know how to pray. Jacob prayed until he was changed from being Jacob to becoming Israel (Genesis 32:28). Jacob is a person, but Israel is a nation. Jacob is a capacity and Israel is also a capacity; Jacob is an individual capacity while Israel is a nation’s capacity. A change in capacity happens at the place of prayer.

My Counsel is, first, be specific in prayer. Jacob made up his mind not to let God go until He had blessed him (Genesis 32:26). Second, refuse to quit until the answer comes (Genesis 32:26).

Beloved, if you are specific in prayer and you refuse to quit or give up on God, you will surely experience a lift and shift in life.

Remember this: When people are desperate for God, they express it at the place of prayer.


  1. Make up your mind to pray continually.
  2. Depend on God at the place of prayer for a lift and shift in life.

Prayer: O Lord, pour on me the Spirit of grace and supplication in Jesus’ Name (Zechariah 12:10).
