Verse Of The Day : I will call on the Lord, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from my enemies 2 Samuel 22: 4

Thought of The Day : Prayer of faith is the key that unlocks the treasure house of God.

LISTEN : Prayer is a massive weapon in the domain of the believer in Christ Jesus. However, he who must pray must pray in faith. Prayer is a waste of time and effort when it is done without faith. When prayer is empty of faith, it is equally empty of results. Lack of faith frustrates efforts made toward prayer. My dear, you have not yet prayed until you have prayed in faith. Yes, faith is one act that God cannot ignore. Prayer of faith is the key that unlocks the treasure house of God. For prayer to work, you must be confident that God is able to do all things and He is too faithful to fail. Unwavering faith in God is what brings answers to prayers. As a matter of fact, faith in God makes you to accept the will of God in every prayer. If God refuses to give what you asked for, faith makes you see such denial as a gift too, because God is omniscient (all knowing). Beloved, do you pray in faith? Do you know that, he who prays without faith will receive nothing from God. The Bible says,

“But he must ask in faith without doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed around by the wind. For that person must not suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord.”

James 1:6,7

My dear, God rewards faith. Hence, prayer done in faith can never be ignored. God wants us to pray so that we can both receive what we asked for, and what He wants us to know. Many things are hidden from our eyes, and until we pray in faith they cannot be revealed. The Bible says,

“Call to me and I will answer you, and will show you great and hidden things, which you do not know.”

Jer 33:3

So, work on your faith by feeding on God’s word (Romans 10:17), and pray in faith for results. Remember, prayer brings deliverance. Be wise!

What Should We Do With This Message?
1. Always pray in faith and know that prayer works.
2. Pray and trust God with your problems and worry no more about them.
3. Ask God to reveal what you need to know about your life and destiny.
4. Never give up on prayer, rather pray until you receive.

Prayer : Heavenly Father, I thank You because You answer prayers. Help me to pray in faith until I receive my heart desires, in Jesus’ name, amen.

A Word Of Blessing : Today I speak on your life. May you grow spiritually. May your prayer life and faith grow and overcome your fears and weaknesses, in Jesus’ name, amen

Reflection : Prayer of faith may experience delays, but cannot be ignored.

Quote : “He who must pray must pray in faith. For prayer of faith is the key that unlocks the treasure house of God.”
