THEME: POWER OF PRAYER
Ezekiel 37:3-5 NKJV
“And He said to me, “Son of man, can these bones live?” So I answered, “O Lord God, You know.” Again He said to me, “Prophesy to these bones, and say to them, ‘O dry bones, hear the word of the Lord! Thus says the Lord God to these bones: “Surely I will cause breath to enter into you, and you shall live.”
-There is a direct linkage between prayer and prophecy mediated by our level of faith in God. When declarations are made, the tongue becomes a powerful organ that either prophesies life or death, and we eat the fruits thereof (Proverbs 18:21). Prophet Ezekiel declared life to the dry bones. When the Lord ask him whether the dry bones could live, he did not show any indication of doubt but he responded saying, “O Lord, God, You know”. Some have trusted in prophets more than the word of God. We should realize that we can prophecy to ourselves, families, nations, environment and any situation, through the word of God which is living and powerful. Like Ezekiel who prophesied and dry bones came to life, we are called to prophecy upon any dry or dead situation in our lives, families, society, churches, education and nation, and they will have life.
Your word Lord is alive and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, penetrating even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; judging the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Your word gives light and understanding to the simple. May Your light shine in our hearts, homes, family, businesses, societies, schools, churches and nation, and resuscitate every dead situation. We declare that we shall not die but live to proclaim Your goodness Oh Lord. We shall not die before our time. We declare that long life is our portion in Jesus name. We declare prosperity upon our lives, families and nation. May You save us Lord and send Your prosperity now in Jesus name. We shall be victorious in every aspect of our lives. We shall be in good health of body, soul and spirit. We are the chosen of the Lord and we shall reign on the earth. The highest heavens belong to the LORD, but the earth You have given to mankind. We are more than conquerors in You Jesus Christ. We are blessed of You Lord and we will live victoriously upon the land in You Christ Jesus. Thank You for Your loving kindness and grace Oh Lord. All glory, honor, power, grace and strength belongs to You Lord, now and forever. Amen
