Let the Spirit of the Lord come down amen! Let the Spirit of the Lord come down, alleluia, let the Spirit of the Lord, from heaven comes down let the Spirit of the Lord comes down.// Father, we declare that we love You, we declare Your everlasting love for You. Father we declare that we love Thee, we declare Your everlasting love for You.
Father, we declare our love for You Lord because You first loved us and give us Your precious Son Jesus to die for us. Thank You for that great love that knows no end. Thank You for You are Great and Mighty. Thank You for watching over us and upholding us by Your righteousness. Thank You and Thank You again again.
Beloved, we are here again to call on that Name that is Great and very Great. The Name at which every knee bows at. Demons trembles and surrender at His very presence. Incurable disease disappear with a touch at the hem of His garment. If we believe His Name works wonders. Are You ready to shout that Name and be made whole?
This is the first Wednesday of this month. We are here again to pray. Prayer is the oil that grease our wheels. Without prayer our life will encounter bumps, sometimes those bumps are unpalatable and belligerence. You wish it taken away but not as easy as creped in. so we must watch lest the enemy of our soul creeps in on us like a thief in the night.
Let us make use of every opportunity presented to us to pray and not faint. We are encouraged by our teaching of today to sow righteousness. What does that mean someone is asking? Do good all the way. Take away evil and sinful acts around you and the Word of God said you will reap faithful love. That means the love of God will surround you because God is love. God becomes Your friend and personal Savior.
Men ought to pray and faint not. Jesus prayed we also need to pray and faint not. Let us make pray a priority in our daily schedule so that the Spirit of God will take us over and help us to be everything God made us to be. Praise God.
Beloved, let righteousness rain all over You and You will see how effective Your prayer life becomes.
Let us go through our ministration for the day.
Sow righteousness for yourselves
and reap faithful love;
break up your untilled ground.
It is time to seek the Lord
until He comes and sends righteousness
on you like the rain.—Hosea 10:12
The people of Hosea’s day had become hardened to God’s Word. They had heard it many times before and had grown apathetic to what God required of them. God’s solution was for them to break up the fallow ground of their hearts. They were to allow Him to soften their hardened hearts.
When the earth was dry and crusty, the farmer would plow to loosen the soil so it was receptive to the seeds and the rains that would give life to the crop. Likewise, God’s people were to break up the sinful barriers in their lives that prevented God’s Word from penetrating their hearts. Then, said Hosea, God would give life and refresh them by raining down on them in righteousness.
As Christians, we must continually cultivate our hearts and minds so that they are receptive to whatever God tells us. John the Baptist exhorted those around him to prepare for Jesus’ coming. We, too, can remind others to prepare their lives so that God’s righteousness will penetrate and fill their lives. We can urge them to repent when we see sin sinking into their lives.
We can share the joy that God’s Word brings us and encourage our friends to seek God’s will also. We can model obedience for our children. We can tell of the blessings that have come to us as a result of our obedience. We can help to break up the fallow ground in the hearts of those around us.
Hosea admonished God’s people to seek the Lord until His righteousness rained down upon them. We should immediately cultivate our heart whenever it starts to become hardened toward God. If we keep our hearts prepared, we will be ready when God’s Word comes to us.
Beloved, hardened not your heart as we are admonished by today’s teaching. Is there anyone who You desire a change in his or her life time to pray is now. So let us pray as we ought pray and gain strength for time of need.
“Men ought always to pray.” Luke 18:1
If men ought always to pray and not to faint, much more Christian men. Jesus has sent His church into the world on the same errand upon which He Himself came, and this mission includes intercession. What if I say that the church is the world’s priest? Creation is dumb, but the church is to find a mouth for it.
It is the church’s high privilege to pray with acceptance. The door of grace is always open for her petitions, and they never return empty-handed. The veil was rent for her, the blood was sprinkled upon the altar for her, God constantly invites her to ask what she wills. Will she refuse the privilege which angels might envy her? Is she not the bride of Christ?
May she not go in unto her King at every hour? Shall she allow the precious privilege to be unused? The church always has need for prayer. There are always some in her midst who are declining, or falling into open sin. There are lambs to be prayed for, that they may be carried in Christ’s bosom? the strong, lest they grow presumptuous; and the weak, lest they become despairing.
If we kept up prayer-meetings four-and-twenty hours in the day, all the days in the year, we might never be without a special subject for supplication. Are we ever without the sick and the poor, the afflicted and the wavering? Are we ever without those who seek the conversion of relatives, the reclaiming of back-sliders, or the salvation of the depraved?
Nay, with congregations constantly gathering, with ministers always preaching, with millions of sinners lying dead in trespasses and sins; in a country over which the darkness of Romanism is certainly descending; in a world full of idols, cruelties, devilries, if the church doth not pray, how shall she excuse her base neglect of the commission of her loving Lord?
Let the church be constant in supplication, let every private believer cast his mite of prayer into the treasury.
The need for us to pray are countless and ever growing. Let us be on our knee and pray.
Beloved, let us pray especially for the souls that are perishing. Let us also remember those that are sick because the devil has taken away their usefulness to the body of Christ. let us remember those whose sources of livelihood is under contention that God will restore them back to help the evangelistic movement of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Father, I know You answers prayer, answer us when we call. Take away every limitation on our way and make us vibrant for Your kingdom work in Jesus Name.
Beloved, let us pray!!!!!!
Remain blessed in the Lord.
