My brothers and sisters in the Lord and The Mystical Order greetings and I call on you to pray as you never prayed before. In these times we need a Saviour that would guide us into the paths of truth. Prayers of real believers like you and me interrupt Heaven. The Life You’ve Always Wanted: Spiritual Disciplines for Ordinary People.
Desperate people pray. They pray without thinking about it; they pray even if they are not sure who they’re praying to or if anyone out there is listening at all. People in foxholes pray. So do people who go through divorce, have children that run away, or hear from a doctor that the lab results say the growth is malignant, You have cancer, HIV/AIDS people just pray out of desperation. We have to pray in season and out of season to catch the right season. People just pray when it is convenient for them, or whenever something happens.
When we reach the limit of our resources, we pray instinctively, reflexively, like the way a man lacking oxygen gasps for breath and the way a man who is falling reaches out for something to grab. It is not bad to pray in a time of crisis. It will not be hard for you if you live a life of prayer. My brothers and sisters this is what God called us to do, pray without ceasing. In season and out of season to catch the right season.
One of God’s most amazing attributes is that He is humble enough to accept people when they turn to Him in sheer desperation, even when they have been ignoring Him for years. You see my brother and sister He is not willing that any of us should perish. So today just pray until you move the hand of God in your favour. Never give up, Daniel from the very first day his prayers were heard in Heaven, but it took twenty and one days for him to get the answer. When you pray the enemy doesn’t like that and he will try to hinder your answer. Whenever you approach the Mercy seat prepare for hindrances. But God is more than able to reward you in public.
Desperation prayers have been the beginning of spiritual life for many people. But by themselves such prayers are not sufficient to sustain spiritual life. Many of us fall into a pattern where the only times we pray are the times when we are prompted by crisis or pain; the rest of the time we rely on our own strength and cleverness. This pattern points to what we really believe regarding prayer. It is not 6:00 am, 12 midday or 6:00 pm that we pray. We are to pray and not to faint. Praying is not for the “lower ground of sorrow”. It is a daily task for all of us to follow. Why pray when you are in church to impress the congregation and then live a life of self praise.
In most ordinary moments we are not convinced that prayer really changes things. Many people believe that their prayers won’t change God’s actions, so they ask themselves what the point is of praying. You are to pray and not to faint by the way. Prayer is like the natural breath we breathe. So prayer sustain us spiritually and in this life that we call believers. As I often put it, “The idea that everything would happen exactly as it does regardless of whether we pray or not is interrupting heaven specter that haunts the minds of many who sincerely profess belief in God. It makes prayer psychologically impossible, replacing it with dead ritual at best.” We so often get caught up in the ritualistic worship and forget who Jesus really is or mean to us. Prayer is the main Key to move the hand of God. If, you never believe it then practice it today and send me the testimony via email. What I will encourage you to do is to pray until you move the hand of God.
