“Behold, he prayeth.”


We give You glory as we worship You we give honour Lord as we worship You, You are wonderful, You are Worthy O Lord! You are wonderful, You are Worthy O Lord! // We give You glory (glory Lord), We give You honour (honour lord), We give You glory (glory Lord, glory Lord, glory Lord)

Father in heaven O God! Who is like unto Thee O Lord!  Who can be compare with Thee in heaven and on earth. Father! You are Mighty. Thank You Lord for being God indeed unto us, Lord Thank You for delivering us from the snare of the flower, like a bird You made a way of escape for Your beloved and  the pit they dug for us they fall therein. Glory be to Your Holy Name in the Highest.

Beloveth, what a beautiful day before us. Another day to be in God’s presence and pour out our heart before the Throne to receive answers to all that we have ask with thanksgiving.

We serve a God that answereth prayer, that is the confident we have that when we call He will answer us. Knowing that our God answereth us when we call, we are made bold to call on Him. God also encourages us to call on Him and He will answer us.

Is there anything too difficult for God to do, there is no such records anywhere in the world. He is a God of impossibility.  He moves the Mountain and fill the valley. He parted the sea and clogged the wheels of the taskmaster. Beloved, God always orchestrate a way out of every difficult situation. Today, God will walk in every difficult situations and solution is coming your way in Jesus Name. God will go ahead of us and do that which only Him can do for in Jesus Name.

Prayers are noticed immediately in heaven immediately it is embarked here on earth as you will read later read from today’s message. I believe someone is encouraged.

So with this confidence, let us go to God and receive answers as we prayer:


“Behold, he prayeth.” Acts 9:11


Prayers are instantly noticed in heaven. The moment Saul began to pray the Lord heard him. Here is comfort for the distressed but praying soul. Oftentimes a poor broken-hearted one bends his knee, but can only utter his wailing in the language of sighs and tears; yet that groan has made all the harps of heaven thrill with music; that tear has been caught by God and treasured in the lachrymatory of heaven.

“Thou puttest my tears into thy bottle,” implies that they are caught as they flow. The suppliant, whose fears prevent his words, will be well understood by the Most High. He may only look up with misty eye; but “prayer is the falling of a tear.” Tears are the diamonds of heaven; sighs are a part of the music of Jehovah’s court, and are numbered with “the sublimest strains that reach the majesty on high.”

Think not that your prayer, however weak or trembling, will be unregarded. Jacob’s ladder is lofty, but our prayers shall lean upon the Angel of the covenant and so climb its starry rounds. Our God not only hears prayer but also loves to hear it. “He forgetteth not the cry of the humble.”

True, He regards not high looks and lofty words; He cares not for the pomp and pageantry of kings; He listens not to the swell of martial music; He regards not the triumph and pride of man; but wherever there is a heart big with sorrow, or a lip quivering with agony, or a deep groan, or a penitential sigh, the heart of Jehovah is open; He marks it down in the registry of His memory; He puts our prayers, like rose leaves, between the pages of His book of remembrance, and when the volume is opened at last, there shall be a precious fragrance springing up therefrom.


“Faith asks no signal from the skies,

To show that prayers accepted rise,

Our Priest is in His holy place,

And answers from the throne of grace.”


Let’s continue:


“Their prayer came up to His holy dwelling place, even unto heaven.” 2Chronicles 30:27


Prayer is the never-failing resort of the Christian in any case, in every plight. When you cannot use your sword you may take to the weapon of all-prayer. Your powder may be damp, your bow-string may be relaxed, but the weapon of all-prayer need never be out of order. Leviathan laughs at the javelin, but he trembles at prayer.

Sword and spear need furbishing, but prayer never rusts, and when we think it most blunt it cuts the best. Prayer is an open door which none can shut. Devils may surround you on all sides, but the way upward is always open, and as long as that road is unobstructed, you will not fall into the enemy’s hand. We can never be taken by blockade, escalade, mine, or storm, so long as heavenly succours can come down to us by Jacob’s ladder to relieve us in the time of our necessities.

Prayer is never out of season: in summer and in winter its merchandize is precious. Prayer gains audience with heaven in the dead of night, in the midst of business, in the heat of noonday, in the shades of evening. In every condition, whether of poverty, or sickness, or obscurity, or slander, or doubt, your covenant God will welcome your prayer and answer it from His holy place.

Nor is prayer ever futile. True prayer is evermore true power. You may not always get what you ask, but you shall always have your real wants supplied. When God does not answer His children according to the letter, He does so according to the spirit. If thou askest for coarse meal, wilt thou be angered because He gives thee the finest flour? If thou seekest bodily health, shouldst thou complain if instead thereof He makes thy sickness turn to the healing of spiritual maladies?

Is it not better to have the cross sanctified than removed? This day, my soul, forget not to offer thy petition and request, for the Lord is ready to grant thee thy desires.

Beloved, there is not much to say than to believe that God sees all and knows all. In every situation, He knows what to do. Let us call on Him who can do all things and lay our petitions before Him. He will answer us and will not turn away our petitions before the blood that were shad on the cross of Cavalry.

O Lord come to our aid and answer us. With Your outstretched hand, let each one that call on today receive answers as we call on You today in Jesus Name. Be glorified in Jesus Name we pray.

Beloved, lift up your voice on high and pray! because answers are coming in Jesus Name.


Remain blessed in the Lord.
