Luke 18:1 says “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;”
Reading this verse is not the problem but the issue is, Making it become a Reality
There are two things that help man In prayer…. *The Revelation of his word of Prayer and *The spiritual grace that help a man to pray
But I will use a Reality experience to explain prayer. So listen carefully,…. Prayer Brings Transfiguration of a mortal man into becoming an Immortal being
Any Prayer that does not Transfigure your life is NOT PRAYER.
Why do great men pray?.. it is because they understood the MYSTERY OF TRANSFIGURATION
Luke 9:28 says; “And it came to pass about an eight days after these sayings, he took Peter and John and James, and went up into a mountain to pray.
9:29 And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was altered, and his raiment was white and glistering.
9:30 And, behold, there talked with him two men, which were Moses and Elias(Elijah):
9:31 Who appeared in glory, and spake of his decease which he should accomplish at Jerusalem.
9:32 But Peter and they that were with him were heavy with sleep: and when they were awake, they saw his glory, and the two men that stood with him.
This is one of the event that brought about the TRANSFIGURATION of a mortal man.
Jesus took some of his Disciples to the mountain to pray and while they were praying the three Disciples slept off, only Jesus was praying and during his course of prayer he travelled to the realm where Elijah and Moses existed.
…and he received a instructions and mantles his Generation does not have at that particular point. This is an opportunity for the disciples to Encounter Moses and Elijah for FREE!… But they were SLEEPING! On their day of Encounter.
One of the things that make a man to be sleeping instead of praying, just like the Disciples, the reason is because THEY DON’T KNOW WHY THEY NEED TO PRAY?
That mystery have not yet be revealed to them.
After The Disciples understood why they should pray… They met Jesus and told him “Rabbi Teach us how to pray”
The reason you don’t feel like praying is because the revelation of his word on prayer have not be given to you.
WHY SHOULD YOU PRAY???
Jesus is always Transformed and Transfigured any time he prays.
HOW DOES THIS TRANSFIGURATION OCCURS???
Prayer is like Bathing in the physical
Anytime a man approach a bathroom, he knows that when he enter that bathroom he will definitely come out refresh, clean and Transformed….same with prayer when you are going to the place of prayer, you must know that, you are going there to encounter God so as to be refresh and Transfigured.
So any time you refuse to pray, you remain impure and down spiritually. Any man that refuse to bath for a week, majority of people won’t relate with him and that man will attract viruses and diseases to himself… So if you don’t pray, it doesn’t affect you physically but your spirit man, inside of you will be affected negativity
So imagine a man that does not pray for a week or a month, he won’t be transformed and that life will attract demons which will be so easy for the devil to penetrate.
So some problem that are in our life today is not caused by our enemies but it is by our ignorance, your unchecked Spiritual life invited a demon inside you.
When you go to the bathroom today, you will go back there tomorrow and other days because of the days activities will make you dirty and impure, So you need to go back there so as to be clean…
this is also related to prayers, When the Bible says “Pray without ceasing” it means every day of your life you must pray so as to make yourself whole Spiritually and remove yourself from any things of darkness
SO DO YOU PRAY CONSISTENTLY?
or DO YOU PRAY WITHOUT CEASING?
Prayers Transfigure your life and make your spirit sensitive and attentive. If your spirit is not attentive to the things of God, your physical man will only be wandering in ignorance and in darkness
The kind of people the herbalists and agents of darkness use more as preys are the people that claim that they are Christians
Most of them are used as prey or sacrifice, because they lack PRAYER. Many of them pray only in meetings or services but at home, it is a war or by force to pray.
Prayer is not by force but it is a necessity for all Believers
As long as you are visiting the Place of Bath so you must also visit the place of prayer.
AS THE BATHROOM IS NEVER ANY MAN’S ENEMY SO MUST THE PLACE OF PRAYER NEVER BE YOUR ENEMY.
So God is calling some people back to the place of prayer today!
Luke 18:1 says “And he spake a parable unto them to this end, THAT MEN OUGHT ALWAYS TO PRAY, AND NOT TO FAINT”
When you don’t pray then you are weak and fainting and you have also table your life down to the devil to be used as a prey or slave.
You might know the word of God but if you don’t Pray, it is a waste of time, because the activation of the dimensions in God can also be done through Prayer.
There is no time in the history of mankind that revival is birth into existence without prayer.
Where ever there is revival, there are armies of God and where ever armies are, there are intercessors and when ever there is intercession, there you will find PRAYER.
The only thing the devil can’t do is to pray to God, so what he do for believers is to occupy them with activities and make them not to pray or pray effectively and consistently.
So there is a call to REPAIR YOUR ALTAR OF PRAYER TODAY!!!
One of the dominion systems allocated for the saints is the ministry of prayer; it’s a principle of spiritual legislature, God gave us authority listen very carefully over principalities and powers and so on and so forth listen, a believer who does not pray will not be able to work in the full expression of the counsel of God it’s true. For many reasons number one;
● Because God gave man a will this is very important; one of the fundamental things, there are seven fundamental things God gave man not a believer, ‘man’ as the zenith of his creation one of it is the power to choose are we together? I set before you blessing and curse, life and death I only advice you I will not force you. So God gave man the power to choose mandate that you must always… God cannot assume that you need his assistance, God cannot assume that you need help, God cannot assume that you need the intervention of heaven you must verbalize your request, you must verbalize your need, you invite God to your life on legal basis even salvation is not imparted outside of your will. He loves you and he’s made the way but he will allow your desire and your hunger to call upon him, the Lord is nigh them that call upon him not them that need him, them that call upon him are we together please? So the fact that God gave man a will he is ever respectful of that will I can choose to ignore God, I can choose as an act of my volition that Lord am not interested in your program for my life and he will honor it at the expense of the eternal destiny God still allow them to declare their need for him. There are people going to hell every day in spite of the fact that the substitutionary sacrifice of Christ is a done deal are we together? This is very very powerful; prayer is important your priesthood is important because it is the system that out sources strength from a dimension that is not earthly. Number two;
● Prayer is the highest proof of humility because it’s proof that you acknowledge you are incapacitated in yourself. Prayerlessness is pride when people are prayer less it is because they have found a way to flatter themselves into believing that outside of God they are still sufficient. Apostle Paul was teaching us and he says we do not clame to be sufficient in ourselves he said, he said our sufficiency is of God who has made us abled ministers. When I go to God in prayer it’s a declaration of humility, its proof that I need him, its proof that I am not trivializing his relevance in my life. Hallelujah! We must pray as proof of humility.
The third reason why we must pray is that;
●prayer is a spiritual system of transporting realities from the realm of the spirit to this realm it’s a dominion system, it’s a system of spiritual legislature. Paul was giving us the revelation on how spiritual things happen in Hebrews 11 the bible says now faith is the substance of things hoped for he calls it the evidence of things not seen are we still together? He says for by it this faith, this technology the Elders obtain a good report and then verse three says through faith we understand that the cosmos, the world were framed by the word of God okay? Now this is the technology; so that things which are seen were not made of things which appear that means the mother that gives birth to the realm of the spirit or the physical realm is the realm of the spirit that everything that appears comes from a realm and a dimension that is higher than this realm listen believers please listen; everything you need, everything you imagine is only possible because it already exist what you call creation is only creation from this realm, from the stand point of the spirit it’s only transportation. Now this is the basis upon which your faith is built so you are not hoping things will happen it’s already a reality you only call it creation when it manifest in the earth realm but just because you have not seen it does not mean it does not exist the bible says while we look not at the things which are seen but the things which are unseen, UNSEEN not unreal just because your eyes cannot capture it in your space does not mean it’s not there everything you are looking for is also looking for you, there is a system to be able to transport it to your domain
Begin to engage in prayers today.
