THEME: BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST
“Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.”
-Believing in Jesus Christ is having faith in His power working in us and through us. When we pray, we need to believe that we have received what we are ask for in prayer. As believers, we live by faith and not by sight, and as we pray the Lord responds to our requests. A prayer of faith requires that we have hope in the things not yet seen as though they were. We are reminded that when we pray, we should put away all doubt, and trust in God who did great and mighty deeds in the Biblical times, and still does them today. As we interact with God’s divine nature, we realize that sometimes His responses are either yes, no or wait according to His will. Whatever His response, we know that God has good plans for us, plans to prosper us and not to harm us, plans to give us hope and a future (Jeremiah 29:11). We are also reminded that before we go to the Lord in prayer He already knows what we need and therefore we should be encouraged that He is ready and willing to do that which we ask for Him in His name (Matthew 6:8). Truly faith is the key to pleasing God and He rewards those who seek Him earnestly. Therefore, let us continue fervently in prayer of faith for He is a faithful God and our fervent prayer shall truly avail much. Let us be like the woman who kept on knocking at the door of the judge and eventually the judge opened the door to fulfill her petition. This woman had faith and her request was answered, even as she kept knocking at the door faithfully. Therefore, let us not grow weary of taking our burdens and needs to God, for He will surely answer us for nothing is difficult with Him, and His faithfulness endures forever.
Dear Almighty Father, we worship and praise You today for You have been a good God. You are a faithful Father even as we become faithless. We exalt You and enthrone You today in our lives. There is no one like You dear Jesus and none can be likened to You. You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last. You are worthy of all our worship. You are the same yesterday, today and forever, and what You did in the past You are able to do unto us. May You answer our prayers and hearts desires Abba Father. May You increase our faith and help us to trust in You more and more. We put all our trust and hope in You knowing that You are a God who hears and answers our prayers. We commit our lives unto You and pray that You will forgive our sins and wash us with Your precious blood dear Jesus. May You remember our families, marriages, relationships and nation that You keep us united in You Christ Jesus. May You provide for all who lack and are in need. Father may You heal the broken hearted and the sick in our society. May You pour out Your rain of abundance and restoration in our nation and our economy that all shall be well. We know You know our needs dear Jesus even before we ask of You. We pray this believing and trusting in Jesus mighty name. Amen
