James says “when I pray effective and fervent prayers, tremendous power is released “
The AMPC which we read earlier says “dynamic in its working “. That means this power that is released works like a dynamite. It is explosive!
Before we look at how to release this prayer , let’s start by asking ourselves what an effective prayer is “
You see, I Used to think there is a particular kind of prayer called “effective prayer “.honestly that’s what I used to think
A night I won’t be forgetting anytime soon.
Rather, every prayer can be an effective prayer .
For example ,Jesus said “whosoever shall say unto this mountain be removed and be cast into the sea shall have it“
That’s an effective prayer . Say it and it happens . that’s what is called “the prayer of faith”
You will be strengthened continually.
You might have been saying “I have prayed over this habit for 10 years but I keep falling into it”.
Yes, you have been
But that ends today as I will show you how to pray effective prayers .
But before we do that ,let’s look at other examples of effective prayers .
Remember when Peter was arrested and the church prayed, the Bible says an angel was dispatched from heaven and Peter was supernaturally released .
What a miracle!
One of them is the famous arrest of Paul and Silas , the Bible says as they woke up to pray and sing, the prison began to shake and their bands broke.
The power of an effective prayer !!!
Have you experienced this before ? I have. Just once but that’s a story for another day.
But imagine you know how to pray effective prayers and Release tremendous powers like the disciples did, Situations will shake !!!
Ever prayed and find yourself shaking uncontrollably? Yeah that’s the anointing of Gods spirit . It can get so intense that even your physical body won’t be able to contain it.
There are three Elements for an effective prayers.
James said “tremendous power is released”.
How powerful is this power ?
Ready ? Ready? Ready? Alright .
Your prayer life is about to be transformed
Power is the ability to cause a change .
This is what you received when you received the Holy Ghost.
And This power is inherent.
The power to change any situation in your life is not coming from heaven. It’s coming from inside you .
The verse we just read says “you shall receive power after the Holy Ghost
Where is that power ? Inside you .
So we don’t need “power from above “, we need “power from within “.
Guess what ? We done need it. We already have it. And this power never leaves you
Your problem is not lack of power ,but lack of knowledge .
You don’t need more power from heaven , you need more knowledge .
You need to know what you have been given and you need to know how what you have been given works!
Paul says “the power that made that happen is inside you “
Wow!!! I just screamed . Because it blows my mind everytime !!!
More power to do what ? Have I exhausted the one inside me?
The one inside me raised a man that Had been dead for three days!!!
It can raise me out of penury , addiction and depression
It’s Because they don’t know . Paul said “ i want you to know”.
The Greek word is “Aido” it means to be aware. Not just a mental assent but an awareness .You need to be aware . Hallelujah
I hope you understand that .
If not , let me break it down .
When I’m sleeping that day, that power could stil be working
Simple but profound.
Not only that, this power works even when you ain’t thinking about it .
A lady came and touch the helm of his garment and instantly got healed .
Jesus turned and said “who touched me? Because virtue /power had left me”
Prayer without fervor is like a sun without heat, or a flower without fragrance.
Let me tell you a story ...
The next day, I called an electrician to fix it.
While he was working on the fans in the room, I was busy with something else in the sitting room.
When he was done , he called me
I was standing under the ceiling fan but I wasn’t feeling the“breeze” even though the fan was rotating like it used to. But I could feel nothing .
It felt bizarre to me. So I brought it
That’s the way some of us are with our prayer lives .
We are rotating but no breeze . A sun but no heat . Flowers without fragrance .
Praying without impact.
There is more power inside you than anywhere else in the world .
That said ,”How To Pray Effective prayers “
There are Three elements of an effective prayer ...
God doesn’t answer prayers because a lot of people are praying for you. It’s not about the number of people that are praying for you .
It’s about the word that is been spoken . Knowing your rights in Christ.
Perseverance in Prayer ;
A lot of Christians don’t know about this. Or maybe they haven’t been taught .
They act like they don’t know they have an adversary who will do everything to stop them
Stay in prayer .
There is something about “staying in prayer “ till you receive (in your heart, not manifestation )“ that which you desire .
Each time he prayed, he would tell his servants go and check . His seravnt will come back with a negative report .
Perseverance in prayer .
Your prayer must be aflame. It must consume .
At the beginning of the year , the Lord said he was going to open three major ministry doors for us .
I shared it with my team . Everyone was excited .
SameJanuary,the first door was opened and we had the opportunity of preaching to about
In February , the second door opened but the authorities in charge of this “new place” won’t approve our letter .
We kept going back and forth .
Week 1 passed,nothing .
Month one passed , nothing .
Month two,passed nothing .
So one day,I was reading my bible & saw where Paul said “ a great door is opened unto me but there are many adversaries “
So I thought to myself “am I going to go back and tell God “it didn’t work,the adversaries were too powerful“
I got up. Called my team and said to them “from today we will meet at a particular time and pray everyday till we get a positive response”
Everyday we prayed , we were releasing some of those power .
The longer we stayed in prayer , the more power we released .
Until,as it were, we hit a critical mass in the spirit and the doors flung wide open.
You needed that 6hrs to release enough fire power or to attain a height in the spirit to receive that which you ought to receive !
But he didn’t spend seconds in prayer .
“Tremendous power is released when you power “ how much of it
Most often than not, the amount of TIME spent in prayer is a factor
So preserve in prayer . Can you declare the word of God over that situation for 1 month . Or
Persevere in prayer !!!
Jesus said ,”this people worship me with their lips but their heart is far from me”
In heaven, what you say with your heart is louder than what you say with your mouth .
At first he said to the king , go and eat and drink the king went to drink but did Elijah go to drink ? No .
He went to the mountain to pray . Just like when ministers say to the congregation , come to that meeting
We are not going home to sleep like most of them would .
We are going to home to generate power .
One of the examples is the one I gave earlier of how he prayed on the night of his arrest .
Hallelujah. I hope you have learnt a lot from this thread . If yes , let me know .
Practice it. Put it to work and release power everyday .
...before you leave ...
