KEYS TO EFFECTIVE PRAYER
Listen, please open up your spirit to these four keys that I will be sharing with you.
The first key that governs the mystery of answered prayer is that before your prayer touches the throne room, it must be heartfelt.
The first key to the kind of prayer and petition that will move heaven is the prayer that moves you first.
Are we together…?
Let me assure you that God is not playing games with men. If your prayer cannot move you, it cannot move heaven.
The bible says, James 5:16 from Amplified Version “Confess to one another therefore your faults … And pray also for one another that you may be healed and restored…
The B part – The earnest heartfelt continued prayer of a righteous man, makes tremendous power available dynamic in its working”.
The bible was teaching us how to pray. The kind of prayer that will touch heaven and it’s in the character of scripture to use a figure that depicts God’s idea of prayer.
Then it says Elijah in this example was a man of like passion and the bible says he prayed earnestly that there be no rain for Three (3) and a half years.
Elijah shut the heavens and put the key in his pocket. He said there shall be no rain except at my word and then the bible says when it was time for the rain to fall, right, Elijah began to pray.
He prayed the first time putting his head beneath his knees and he cried and travailed.
Let me tell you… The kind of prayer that touches heaven is the kind of prayer where you pray and forget who is by your side.
You’re not looking at make-up or suit or conscious of whether I’m sweating. No! No!! No!!!. It must be heartfelt – from the depth of your spirit!
Hannah kept crying every time at Shiloh but a time came, she prayed a heartfelt prayer.
The bible says, before the alter, she poured her soul to a point that Eli the prophet said why is this woman drunk.
How can you come to the altar drunk and she said, my Lord I’m not drunk but a woman that is pouring her soul before God, and the spirit of God spoke through the prophet.
Let me tell you something, the kind of prayer that shakes heaven is prayer that is heartfelt.
The way a lot of believers pray, you will know that you do not expect an answer.
You pray with all your heart. The bible said, Jesus prayed at Gethsemane.
It was so heartfelt; his sweat was like drops of blood.
Same prayer without changing it three times and he sustained strength from heaven and was ready for the cross.
When we say pray, you’ll see a lot of people strolling around, chewing gums.
You see, that kind of prayer, let me tell you something… I’m not being religious with you. There is a law. You are contending against forces.
it’s like an airplane attempting to rise. It must move and the law of aerodynamics must sustain capacity to overcome the law of gravity.
The flesh has its encumbrances and the moment you begin to pray, the flesh will exert a weight upon you but it takes power.
Everybody say power!. As you generate power in the spirit, it’s like a flight. Your flesh is weak You’re feeling sleepy but you understand the law of spiritual superiority that as it is in the spirit so it will manifest.
Your spirit is strong but the bible says your flesh is weak. It’s up to you to yield to the weakness of the flesh and not pray or keep praying.
You don’t receive strength to continue praying.
It is in the prayer all of a sudden you when your flesh is weak!.
Have you prayed to a point that you did not even expect you had strength for ten minutes. Keep praying. You’re weak, the devil keeps sending all kind of thoughts in your mind.
Just keep praying. The secret is to continue. I tell you there is an escape velocity in the spirit. There is a level you’ll get to that it will no longer be your flesh.
At that level the spirit of God takes over. Lift your voice and pray. Blast in tongues.
A heartfelt prayer. Walk around. Don’t just sit at your seat strolling carelessly.
We’re ascending in the realm of the spirit above and beyond the realms of the limitation of the flesh. I assure you your spirit is willing. I assure you your spirit man is willing.
Forget about the limitation of the flesh. With time it will bow. With time it must bow.
There’s a supply of Grace and spirit power upon you. Grace to travail. Tongues continue… The heartfelt, effectual, heartfelt, effectual, heartfelt, effectual, heartfelt, effectual, heartfelt, effectual. Generate power, power!!!
Generate power to dislodge every force. Generate power to contend with every alter. Generate power to confront gates. Generate power to confront. Generate power to force answers!
