THEME: POWER OF PRAYER
Mark 11:24 NKJV
“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.”
-Prayer is a catalyst for divine interference. Faith is the currency that we transact with God in prayer. Without faith it is impossible to please God. Faith should not be placed on men due to their power, positions, fame or influence, but we are called to trust in God in all situations. Abraham had faith in God and it was accounted to him for righteousness. If then we are made righteousness through faith, our prayers as God’s righteous beloved avail much. Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. He prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit (James 5:16-18). Jesus taught His disciples saying that, “if you have faith and do not doubt, you will not only do what was done to the fig tree, but also if you say to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ it will be done. And whatever things you ask in prayer, believing, you will receive” (Matthew 21:21-22). We are reminded to apply faith in prayer and God will answer us according to His will.
Abba Father our Lord and God, we exult You and praise Your holy name. You are our Refuge and Strength, there is none like You. You are the great I Am, the great High Priest and sure Foundation, nothing is too hard for You Lord. We come before You today with humility in our hearts asking You for mercy and grace.

We humbly ask You to hear us and answer all our prayers and supplications according to Your will. May You answer our hearts desires and make all our plans succeed.

May Your revival take place in our nations and many nations for You glory Lord. Grant that many people among us may know You and come to You. You are the way the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father apart from by You dear Jesus. Grant that our children, relatives, friends, colleagues, leaders and the entire world may come to You. We love You dear Jesus, thank You for loving us first. You are worthy Lord to receive glory, honor and power, for You created all things, and by Your will they were created and have their being. Oh God of all creation, bless this our land and nation, may justice be our shield and defender, may we dwell in unity, peace and liberty, may peace be found within our borders. Amen
