THEME: POWER OF PRAYER
Matthew 9:38 NKJV
“Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest.”
-Often times have we heard that revival is coming, and surely it is here with us. We know that Kenya is the springboard for revival in Africa. We are called to pray for this very purpose to come to pass in God’s time and His design. When God releases His grace of salvation, it requires that we pray also that He touches the hearts of men and women who are called to be laborers into His harvest.
Prayer provides a sure way of communicating with God our Father and Maker. A concoction of prayer and worship ensures that we invite God’s presence and experience His supernatural power. Paul and Silas while in prison worshiped and prayed to God, and the shackles of all the prisoners were loosed. Prayer of agreement emboldens the participants to travail in prayer with high expectation as God is present with us. When we are united in prayer with the Holy Spirit and Christ, God our Father in heaven answers us. Prayer is a catalyst for divine interference, and faith activates its manifestation. When we pray we must believe and not doubt, because if we doubt it’s like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind (James 1:6). Prophet Ezekiel did not doubt when the Lord asked him whether the dry bones would live. He trusted in God saying, “O Lord God, You know.” The Lord used him powerfully to prophecy to the dry bones and they came to life (Ezekiel 37:3-5). God is calling us to be prophetic intercessors, and declare that which is not; to live by faith. When we make prophetic declarations, we submit to the authority of Christ through His true word and we see results by faith. God is also calling us to pray for the reveal is here with us, that He may send laborers into the harvest, that His will may be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Lord You are our Lord and King, our Good Shepherd, we exult Your holy name. We raise Your banner in worship to You for You have done great things in our lives, families and nation, great is Your faithfulness. You are our Lord and Savior, we glorify Your name. May You bless our school going children and protect them. May You remember all the street families that You may make a way for them even where there seems to be no way. May You release a special blessing upon us, our nation and all the people that You may grant us the grace to pray as You prosper us in every area. We pray for the leadership of this nation that You may instruct them in Your divine wisdom. We pray that You may send laborers into the harvest, for the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few. May You use us for Your kingdom advancement dear Jesus. You are the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father except through You. May You call every soul into the Door to salvation we humbly beseech You dear Jesus. May You break every chain and release Your power upon us so that we may function optimally for the glory and honor of Your name. May You bless us and keep us Lord. May You make Your face shine upon us and be gracious to us. May You lift up Your countenance upon us and give us peace. Amen
