OPEN HEAVENS DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: MONDAY 29TH MARCH 2021.

THEME: PRAY WITHOUT CEASING.

MEMORISE:

Pray without ceasing. 1 Thessalonians 5:17

READ: James 5:16-18

16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.

18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.

MESSAGE:

Imagine a country that has nuclear weapons being threatened by another country without any, yet the former is the one trembling. That is what happens when situations of life cause Christians to tremble. You have he nuclear weapon of prayers at your disposal, so why fear the circumstances of this life? The Lord Jesus Christ Himself said:
“If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” John 14:14

He said in James 4:2-3 that you have not, because you ask not. Are you currently facing any challenge? Get on your knees in prayer. Prayer is far more potent than many people take it to be. I have seen prayers bring about unimaginable miracles. Use it and use it judiciously.

When you pray without ceasing, before obstacles arise, you already have a bulldozer waiting to crush them. Anyone who wants to fulfil the plan of God for his or her life cannot be waiting for obstacles to arise before they pray; they pray without ceasing.

Several years ago, I recall telling Pastors to continue fasting and praying after we had just concluded a special programme in The Redeemed Christian Church of God. They obeyed even though it seemed unnecessary to them. Before long, a government official announced that they wanted to clear off the Redemption Camp. Since the obstacle met us praying, it got out of the way in no time.

Prayer is my lifestyle. I pray without ceasing, so when obstacles arise, there is a bulldozer waiting to clear them off.

You may ask “How can I pray without ceasing when I have to go to work and do other things during the day? Beside won’t I run out of prayer points?” The answer is simple- pray in tongues. When you pray in tongues all the time you don’t need prayer points – the Holy Spirit puts the prayer points in your mouth (Romans 8:26).

While you are walking, pray. When driving, pray. In the toilet, pray. Wherever you are, even if you cannot speak loudly, just keep mumbling the tongues under your breath.

Don’t stop praying, your miracles are on the way.

KEY POINT:

Don’t wait for obstacles before you pray; pray without ceasing.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Numbers 9-11

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE

HYMN 18: PASS ME NOT, O GENTLE SAVIOR.

Pass me not, O gentle Savior,
Hear my humble cry;
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

o Refrain:
Savior, Savior,
Hear my humble cry,
While on others Thou art calling,
Do not pass me by.

2
Let me at Thy throne of mercy
Find a sweet relief;
Kneeling there in deep contrition,
Help my unbelief. Refrain:

3
Trusting only in Thy merit,
Would I seek Thy face;
Heal my wounded, broken spirit,
Save me by Thy grace. Refrain:

4
Thou the spring of all my comfort,
More than life to me,
Whom have I on earth beside Thee,
Whom in Heav’n but Thee. Refrain:
