Sweet Jesus, sweet Jesus, how Wonderful You are, You are precious than the morning star. You are precious, more precious than the lily that grow by side. You are precious, more precious than gold.// Glory be to the Lord in the highest Amen! For His mercies endureth forever Amen! 2x.

Father, we Thank You for another beautiful day You have made and said we should be glad and rejoice in it. blessed be Your Holy Name. Thank You for another opportunity to worship and to praise Your Holy Name. Thank You for You are indeed God. You save Your anointed and never allowed Your children to be confounded. Glory be to Your Holy Name Amen!

Beloved, we are again gathered to worship and to reverence our maker. The one who is the lifter of our head. The only wise God. His Name is Alpha and Omega. He is the Beginning and the End. Our El-Shaddia, the Great I AM. The Adonai. Glory and adoration belong to Him alone in Jesus Name.

A different tune of prayer topic I must say. It is both an encouragement and a warning package together. It is so important we take heed least we fall by the wayside either out discouragement or out excitement.

The need for us to continue in our daily devotion and prayer is so important so that we will never fall into temptation no matter what the tempest might be we must hold on to God, Who promised never to leave us nor to fail us.

You must hold on to God He is author and finisher of our faith. Do you that even when you think He is seeing your labour of love, God is noting everything you are doing for the kingdom and when the need arises, when the enemy comes in like a flood, beloved, the Spirit of God will raise a standard against it.

Truly faithful is our God. though not of works but on His mercy and kindness we rest. Beloved, always ensure that you are engage in  good works. Keeping on sowing righteousness at the due time your reap gladness here on earth and in heaven also.

Awake o yea slumber lest your field is over taken by weeds. Work diligently, and pray earnestly so that the Lord Himself will manifest His power and glory in all that we do.

Beloved, sow so that at the due time You will also reap. Let get more from the message below:

“Light is sown for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart.” Ps. 97:11

Righteousness is often costly to the man who keeps to it at all hazards, but in the end it will bear its own expenses, and return an infinite profit. A holy life is like sowing seed: much is going out, and apparently it is buried in the soil, never to be gathered up again. We are mistaken when we look for an immediate harvest’; but the error is very natural, for it seems impossible to bury light. Yet light is “sown,” says the text. It lies latent: none can see it, it is sown. We are quite sure that it must one day manifest itself.

Full sure are we that the Lord has set a harvest for the sowers of light, and they shall reap it, each man for himself. Then shall come their gladness. Sheaves of joy for seeds of light. Their heart was upright before the Lord, though men gave them no credit for it, but even censured them: they were righteous, though those about them denounced them as censorious. They had to wait, as husbandmen wait for the precious fruits of the earth: but the light was sown for them, and gladness was being prepared on their behalf by the Lord of the harvest.

Courage, brothers! we need not be in a hurry. Let us in patience possess our souls, for soon shall our souls possess light and gladness.

We are called to sow in prayer so that when we cannot pray due circumstances of life we can as well harvest what we have sown at some other time.

Never neglect a prayerful life style, is as important as your secular life style. Arise and pray; glory be to God in the Highest:

“Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.” Luke 22:46

When is the Christian most liable to sleep? Is it not when his temporal circumstances are prosperous? Have you not found it so? When you had daily troubles to take to the throne of grace, were you not more wakeful than you are now? Easy roads make sleepy travellers.

Another dangerous time is when all goes pleasantly in spiritual matters. Christian went not to sleep when lions were in the way, or when he was wading through the river, or when fighting with Apollyon, but when he had climbed half way up the Hill Difficulty, and came to a delightful arbour, he sat down, and forthwith fell asleep, to his great sorrow and loss.

The enchanted ground is a place of balmy breezes, laden with fragrant odours and soft influences, all tending to lull pilgrims to sleep. Remember Bunyan’s description: “Then they came to an arbour, warm, and promising much refreshing to the weary pilgrims; for it was finely wrought above head, beautified with greens, and furnished with benches and settles. It had also in it a soft couch, where the weary might lean.” “The arbour was called the Slothful’s Friend, and was made on purpose to allure, if it might be, some of the pilgrims to take up their rest there when weary.”

Depend upon it, it is in easy places that men shut their eyes and wander into the dreamy land of forgetfulness. Old Erskine wisely remarked, “I like a roaring devil better than a sleeping devil.” There is no temptation half so dangerous as not being tempted. The distressed soul does not sleep; it is after we enter into peaceful confidence and full assurance that we are in danger of slumbering. The disciples fell asleep after they had seen Jesus transfigured on the mountain top.

Take heed, joyous Christian, good frames are near neighbours to temptations: be as happy as you will, only be watchful.

Beloved, I believe you are encouraged. Sometimes it will look as if God is not hearing or answers are not coming, hold on. That you are not seeing physical manifestation of the things prayed for does not mean that God is not working, it is only that those things will not fail at the due time.

If you have fail in the place of prayer, beloved, just a fresh commitment will help you state again as the Holy spirit help your infirmities in Jesus Name. Invite the Holy Spirit to pour on you afresh fire of prayer as you pray today.

God answer us when we call. Do not be silent as only you is able to do above all we can ever imagine or think about. Glory be to your Holy Name in the Highest.

Praise the Name of the Lord! Somebody!

Prayer does not change God but it brings you into God’s will remember. May the meekness in Christ be made available to us to walk as Jesus walked. Praise the Lord!

Remain blessed in the Lord.
