God’s Inspired Prayer
So Abraham prayed to God; and God healed Abimelech, his wife, and his female servants. Then they bore children; for the Lord had closed up all the wombs of the house of Abimelech because of Sarah, Abraham’s wife.- Genesis 20:17-18
God from the Scripture above used Abraham to minister fruitfulness to the family of Abimelech even though they (Abraham and Sarah) were believing God for the promised child. Some today think that you cannot give what you don’t have but because God is a giver, the Elshaddai He can honour the prayer of his own. God honoured the prayer of Abraham for Abimelech because of the integrity of his heart on this matter.
Prayer is not merely talking or chatting but taking God by his words. Prayer is not bribing God to change his mind. His mind is already made up to bless all his own but it is our responsibility to do the possible. The possible is for you to know the word and pray the word. The possible thing is to also genuinely examine yourself of all revealed wrongs before approaching God to answer our prayer.
Prayer is not a religious exercise, but a communion between God and you based on covenant promises. God has all the blessings and we have all the problems and challenges. He wants to exchange his strength for your weakness. When we enlist his assistance through prayer, he will defend his covenant. Today, go out in boldness to pray and act on what God has inspired you to do and you will see it accomplished in Jesus name. Just pray as God has inspired you, I can assure you the manifestation shall be awesome because God is ever faithful to his word.
Prayer: Father, I bless your holy name today. I rejoice because Christ Jesus is my victory. He is my great conqueror and He lives within me. You have honoured me with life and strength and salvation both day and night. I am so glad that I walk in the blessings of God.
