Sitting at Jesus’ Feet


Prayer is the key, Prayer is the key, Prayer is the master key. Jesus started with prayer and ended with prayer, Prayer is the master key, alleluia. // I will lift up Jesus higher, I will lift up Jesus higher O Jehovah, Alpha Omega I will lift up Jesus high.2x

Glorious Father, we thank You, we bless Your Holy Name, we worship You, we exalt You forever and ever. Blessed Redeemer, we bow before Your Throne of grace and we say hallow be thou Name, let Thy kingdom come and Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Have Your way again in our life. Show forth Your Praise and glorify Yourself in our lives and ministry in Jesus Name.

Beloved, we are having our last session of prayer in this beautiful month and am sure someone is eager to pray. This prayer point says “Father make me addicted  to prayer” put in another way “Father, make my life a life of prayer.”

Do you know what you will be if God answers this request. Beloved you will a life wire. Your life will be so consecrated that every opposite forces will take to their heels at your appearing. I believe that should be the desire of every child of God.

Second benefit of this request is that heaven will be so close as God is the very breathe in your nostrils. Why do I say so? The power of God will rest upon you so mightily because the mind of God will be reveal to you. God will use you as a vessel to accomplish His purpose here on earth. Praise God.

Drawing another scenario for you. Have you ever seen flies on a hot food? Is not possible except that fly want to be consumed along with the food. (am sure no one will consume a fly). When God bath your life with fire of prayer, you will be so hot that no attack comes near you.

No wonder the only way the devil will attack a child of God and succeed is by luring such individual to sin. So let watch it that we guide not only our heart but also our life with all diligence, so that you will be on fire all the days of our life. Prayer is the key is a song we just sang, it will empower you to do exploits in the Kingdom business. Somebody Praise the Lord!

Which other ways can we make our life constantly in tune to heaven, someone want know or are we going to be praying all through the day.

Today’s text answers the question. We must create time to read and study God’s Word. We must offer songs of thanksgiving and Praise as a sacrifices to God in heaven as we can see Mary and Joshua doing in our text for the day.

Is it your desire to pray then you must pray a prayer that God will answer. A prayer that heaven will grant and give answers in return in Jesus Name.

Beloved, what a prayer answering God we serve. I decree today that any power hindering our blessings to come speedily be consume by the fire of Holy Ghost in Jesus Name.

Our blessings must come as promised us by our Father in heaven. It will come speedily and not delay. The hand of the Lord will bring it to pass in Jesus Name.

We should learn to sit like Mary and not get distracted or weary like Martha. We must daily stand before the presence of God Joshua stood and our people and body of Christ be delivered from entice of the enemies in Jesus Name.

Before the coming of Christ, the men of old ministered before angels as we can see in our second ministration. Another place we read that was when Zacharias was ministering but when Jesus was born and die on the cross. He became our advocate before God.

We need not pray through any other means than Through Jesus. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me (Jn 14:6).

Beloved, is time to arise O yea child of God and take your position. Pray and receive answers to your prayers in Jesus Name.

Come let us discover more:


But Martha was distracted by her many tasks, and she came up and asked, “Lord, don’t You care that my sister has left me to serve alone? So tell her to give me a hand.”—Luke 10:40

Martha loved Jesus dearly and would have done anything for Him. Her struggle came in being still! Martha spent so much time serving Jesus that she had no time to enjoy His company or to get to know Him better. The harder Martha worked, the more frustrated she became with her sister Mary. Mary was sitting at Jesus’ feet while Martha scurried around the house to make sure everything was in perfect order for Jesus. Martha’s service, though it started out with gladness, deteriorated into resentment and envy.

It is good to want to serve Christ as an expression of love for what He has done for you. Yet when your activity consumes your time and energies so that you have no time for Him, you have become too busy! You may think, as Martha did, that if you don’t do the work, it won’t get done.

That may be true, but Jesus taught that your highest priority must be your relationship with Him. If anything detracts you from that relationship, that activity is not from God. God will not ask you to do something that hinders your relationship with Christ. At times, serving God and carrying out His mission is the best way to know and experience God. At other times, it is more important to sit quietly at His feet and listen to what He is saying.

We are not called to continually sit at the feet of Jesus, otherwise our service for Him would cease. Neither are we called to serve Him incessantly, without taking time to find restoration in His presence. Have you been serving God so diligently that you have not had time to spend with Him?

Have you answered the question  above? If you have, let’s discover more:

“Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord.” Zechariah 3:1


In Joshua the high priest we see a picture of each and every child of God, who has been made nigh by the blood of Christ, and has been taught to minister in holy things, and enter into that which is within the veil. Jesus has made us priests and kings unto God, and even here upon earth we exercise the priesthood of consecrated living and hallowed service.

But this high priest is said to be “standing before the angel of the Lord,” that is, standing to minister. This should be the perpetual position of every true believer. Every place is now God’s temple, and His people can as truly serve Him in their daily employments as in His house. They are to be always “ministering,” offering the spiritual sacrifice of prayer and praise, and presenting themselves a “living sacrifice.”

But notice where it is that Joshua stands to minister, it is before the angel of Jehovah. It is only through a mediator that we poor defiled ones can ever become priests unto God. I present what I have before the messenger, the angel of the covenant, the Lord Jesus; and through Him my prayers find acceptance wrapped up in His prayers; my praises become sweet as they are bound up with bundles of myrrh, and aloes, and cassia from Christ’s own garden.

If I can bring Him nothing but my tears, He will put them with His own tears in His own bottle for He once wept; if I can bring Him nothing but my groans and sighs, He will accept these as an acceptable sacrifice, for He once was broken in heart, and sighed heavily in spirit. I myself, standing in Him, am accepted in the Beloved; and all my polluted works, though in themselves only objects of divine abhorrence, are so received, that God smelleth a sweet savour.

He is content and I am blessed. See, then, the position of the Christian—”a priest—standing—before the angel of the Lord.”

Do you want to have God’s blessing upon your life than become an intercessor. Make sure that you stand in gap before men and God. Pray for your country and the leaders that they do the mind of God. Pray for the perishing and those sick in their body for the God’s speedily intervention. Arise child of God and pray.

God is more than able to heal and to deliver you from all evil. The God we are calling here is the Living God the Only Wise God who will defend and protect you  from all evil. Praise God!

Our Father answer us even as you have promised us in Jesus Name.

May His blessing rain on us as we pray today in Jesus Name.

Remain blessed in Jesus Name.
