Elijah, Man Of Prayer

Monday 27th May 2019 Prayer Devotion
Scripture Reading:- 1 Kings 18:41-46
Topic:- Elijah, Man Of Prayer
Text:- James 5:7-8
A. What is Prayer?
1. Prayer is simply an act of communing with the Creator of the universe. See Mark 11:24.
2. Prayer is an act of calling upon God to meet our legitimate needs and desires brought before Him in a holy, humble, reverent and scriptural manner. See 2 Chronicles 7:14.
3. Prayer is travailing in the closet in order to give birth to your spiritual baby. It is agonizing in order to usher in the dawn of a new era.
4. Prayer is bringing the adversary before the court of heaven.
5. Prayer is drawing life, power and fire from the very throne of God.
B. Seven Keys To Productive Prayer:
1. Pray with a vision and under the unction of the Holy Spirit.
2. Pray, lifting up holy hands without wrath and doubting. See 1 Timothy 2:8.
3. Carry your burden into your prayer and deal with it thoroughly.
4. Pray unselfishly, i.e you must be liberal enough to pray for others and God’s work in your prayer. See 1 Timothy 2:1-3.
5. Pay the price and get the goods delivered at your doorstep.
6. Pray, exalting God above your problems and see things through the eyes of faith.
7. Identify and pull down all satanic checkpoints mounted against your prayers, i.e. you defeat all anti-prayer demons dispatched to hinder your prayer or double-cross the delivering angel commissioned to bring your blessings. See Daniel 10:10-13.
In view of all these we can say that Elijah was a man of prayer. That was what made him to be a Man of God and Man of Fire.
For Example:
1. He called fire from heaven to consume two Captains and 100 soldiers.
2. He prayed that there should be no rain for 3½ years.
3. In an agonizing manner, by putting his face between his knees, he prayed for rain after the 3½ years had expired.
Conclusively, without intensive prayer, you cannot be a Man of God, Man of Fire.
Prayer Points:-
1. Every spirit of prayerlessness, break your siege over my life, in the name of Jesus Christ.
2. Oh Lord God, purge and rid my prayer altar of sin and evil, in the name of Jesus Christ.
3. Oh Lord God, make my prayer life a testimony to my generation, in the name of Jesus Christ.
4. Oh Lord God, wipe confusion from the table of my heart and link me to Your throne henceforth, in the name of Jesus Christ.
5. Oh Lord God, ignite my prayer life with Your fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Glorious Monday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
