Topic: “Understanding Prayer Boosters”
Fasting intensifies the force or power of Prayer.
Scripture: Romans 8:26.
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
Thought for The Day: Fasting intensifies the force or power of Prayer.
Prayer boosters refer to spiritual devices that have the power to increase the force of a person’s prayer life. They are spiritual boosters that give extra power to, and also increase the effect of a person’s prayer life. They help, encourage, improve or support a Christian to pray effectively.
Today, we shall be looking at five prayer boosters:
1. Praying in tongues (Jude Verse 20)
Praying in tongues, which refers to praying in the spirit, is a booster of prayer life.
2. Praying with fasting (Matthew 6:16)
Fasting intensifies the force or power of Prayer. It was by the power of fasting combined with prayer that Esther broke the conspiracy of Haman over the lives and destinies of the children of Israel in Shushan in the Persian Empire (Esther 4:16).
3. Praying in the Midnight (Acts 16:25):
This is maximizing the night times for effective praying. The night time is a strategic spiritual time. So, engaging the power of the midnight amplifies a person’s prayer life.
4. Praying with sacrifice
Sacrifice, which entails the release of one’s valuables and resources towards God, amplifies the outcome of a person’s prayer life. The release of resources towards God confirms your passion for God. Sacrificial prayer invokes God’s Presence and Power. (1 Kings 3:4).
5. Praying with intercession
This is praying selflessly. It refers to praying for other people out of deep love for them or praying for the establishment of the Kingdom of God in a place. It is a situation where one decides to abandon one’s personal needs and focus on the needs of other people. (Job 42:10).
Remember this: Fasting intensifies the force or power of Prayer.

2. Ask God for the grace to pray with the engagement of each of the prayer boosters outlined above.

QUOTE: It is wisdom to find out what you are looking for in life; what God wants to do with your life; what will take you to your desired destination fast, and direct your energies there. The first of such activities, I believe, is your relationship with God – the time given to prayer and the study of the Word. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Luke 7-9
REFLECTION: The quality of your devotion determines the quality of your destiny. You can never have a quality of life that is higher than the quality of your relationship with God. Move up.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Fresh fire for effective and impactful prayer is released on you in Jesus’ Name.
