HOW TO USE PRAYER TO CHANGE YOUR DIFFICULT SITUATION
In Luke 18:1, Jesus is teaching on prayer and this is what he said.
The bible says “and he spake a parable to the end that men ought always to pray and not to faint”
So, the only person exempted from prayer is one who is not a man.
This is the first information.
Prayer is not for prayer warriors, prayer is not for Preachers, prayer is not even for desperate people, prayer is for men!
Jesus now, scene one, already in a law court, and then he describes a judge, I pray you never find such in your life, that there is this man, who did not fear God, that means the Holy spirit cannot talk to him and He obey, and also, he has no regard for any man.
Scene 2, the bible now says there was a widow look, at the contrast.
A widow is a woman that is supposedly defenseless, are we together now?
He is showing you the Excellency of prayer, so he starts with a cruel man, that seems to have no fortitude for forgiveness or mercy or repentance,
Then he now shows a woman who is supposedly helpless, and he said next verse, that this man would not pay attention to her,
But then he said within himself though I would not fear God or regard men, Verse 5, he said because this widow troubles me, that means there is an effect to prayer,
When men pray, it is not only their sound they hear, there is a sound in the realm of the spirit, that moves beyond that horizon of the region of prayer and begins to correct things
Prayer is a system of negotiation. It is a system of kingdom legislature
You can be at a point and your prayer immortalizes your presence, goes to a region where you cannot go and begin to correct things.
This is a judge that does not fear God.
This is a judge that has no regard for men, yet a widow used this mystery of prayer, is God peaking to someone?
The key is consistency. That means when I am weak, prayer can make me strong.
You may think London will not open up for me, you are right until, I Pray.
You may think I may not get a job. You are right until I pray
You may think my children will become what other people are, and you are right until I pray.
Your prophecy about me is correct until I pray,
It is true that I should fail, it is true my paper don’t seems to be coming, until I pray.
Jesus is teaching that the saint are not prayerless
When you understand the jurisdiction of the spiritual reality that prayer captures, it is not just an instrument to respond during emergency,
No, Prayer can move things, believe me.
You can grow your way through prayer, you can transit to new version of you through prayer.
In Luke 9:29, the Bible says as he prayed, two things happened
One is that the appearance of his face was altered: that means prayer can transform you from a weak you to a strong you.
The first thing that happened when Jesus prayed, was that his countenance changed
I can become a newer version of me, if I can pray
Rejoice not over my yesterday, prayer can change me,
Yes, I know that I was once Saul the son of Kish, barren of spiritual intelligence, not even knowing where the donkey is,
But as I pray, I will find a Samuel and I will return back to one of the sons of the prophet.
Men can grow, men can transit, they can rise to superior versions of themselves.
All you see is not all that can be, there truly can be more,
Apostle nobody wants to help me in London, I don’t know why, I don’t have anybody, you are right until you pray.
Phil 4:6 tells us prayerlessness creates anxiety. Do you know what anxiety is?
Anxiety is the natural reaction of man to uncertainty
It is human to be uncertain, there are no guaranty anywhere, because men can change, prayer become the stabilizer to a man’s life.
Don’t assume he knows your request; make your request known,
Make your housing issue known, make issue of your child known, make the issue of your health know, make the issue of finances known.
This is the God of heaven. I refuse to be anxious. I refuse to be perturbed in life.
I may look weak but there is a government whose jealousy has been invested upon my life.
And listen, let me tell you this, prayer is the highest demonstration of humility,
It is a proof that you acknowledge that by yourself and in your strength you do not sustain that ability.
So, you tap into the intelligence of a government that is ancient, very ancient, with a track record of winning.
Listen to me, an attack on your prayer life is a real attack, greater than the attack on your finances.
When your prayer life dies, it is only a matter of time, everything around your life begin to reflect prayerlessness.
Someone in this conference, you need to trust God for grace to obtain by the spirit the grace for prayer, and supplication,
Turn the plate down in your house, shut your door and say I am not only a wife I am a priest,
I am not only a business man, I am a priest You take on your priestly regalia and shut the door and begin to control the spiritual climate over your territory.
Men who can pray do not take No for an answer, be careful when you tell them No, you will soon say sorry.
Hezekiah was a man appointed to death in Chapter 38 in Isaiah and a true prophet, Isaiah, brought him a report from God, you will not recover.
And he said, thank you prophet, I honour your office, let me talk to God, and He turns to God and he said, did you not create a system of negotiation,
Remember, if I die who will replace me in serving your purpose? and God said, No one.
Listen, you can negotiate new realities in your life,
If you have not prayed, don’t trust the results you see, let me repeat myself, if you have not pray do not trust the result you see.
Next week I will give you a property, don’t trust the result, until you have secured it in prayer.
The vacillation of men, are we together now?
The inconsistency of men, you will have a pectoral of heartaches, until you learn the Excellency of prayer.
But if and when it is secured, let it change in the physical. I do not care, because, prayer is such a jealous holder when it holds things, it keeps them.
