THE BLESSING OF PRAYER (1-3) – Dr. Paul Enenche

ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): GENESIS 32:24-28; 1 CHRONICLES 4:9-10; DANIEL 6:10

SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the connection between prayer and the Blessing

It has been confirmed that the place of prayer is the place of the Blessing; prayerful people are blessed people

SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES:

  1. Jacob wrestled with God at the place of prayer/intercession until the Blessing rested (Gen. 32:24-28)
  2. Abraham always stood before the Lord at the place of prayer and that translated him
    into a generational blessing (Gen. 19:27; Gal. 3:9)
  3. Jabez, a man who was born in terrible circumstances that caused his life to begin with sorrow and pain, cried unto God until God changed his story (1Chron. 4:9-10)
    He went from being miserable to being honourable at the frequency of prayer.
  4. Daniel was one of the most prolific prayer warriors in Scripture

WHAT IS THE PLACE OF PRAYER?

  1. The place of prayer is the place for the breaking of enemy yokes and limitations (Gen. 32:26)
  2. The place of prayer is the place for the release of power unto success and progress (Gen. 32:28)
    People who pray connect power and the power they connect ushers them into the realm of success and progress
  3. The place of prayer is the place to connect power for a complete change of life’s story (Gen. 32:28; 1Chron. 4:9-10)
    At the place of prayer, you can connect power to change the whole course of your life’s journey
  4. The place of prayer is the place for the enlargement of life and destiny (Gen. 32:28)
    The change from Jacob to Israel is the change from a person to a nation
    When your yokes are broken, when you are powered unto success and progress, when you receive a complete change of story, and when you receive capacity enlargement, you are called a blessed person!
  5. The place of prayer is the place of honour and dignity (1Chron. 4:9)
  6. The place of prayer is the place of joy and fulfilment (1Chron. 4:9-10; Ps. 16:11)
    The place of prayer is the place of His Presence and in His presence is fullness of joy
  7. The place of prayer is the place for the realisation of the visible goodness of God (1Chron. 4:10; Isa. 61:9)
    This is when God does things in your life that no devil can deny
  8. The place of prayer is the place for the enhancement of capacity and greatness (1Chron. 4:10; Gen. 32:28)
    God is going to bring you to a point where you are truly bigger than what you are now, spiritually and otherwise
  9. The place of prayer is the place of favour and acceptance (Dan. 1:9; Gen. 39:2, 21)
    God gives favour and acceptance before man and God to the one who knows how to pray
    It is not possible to walk in disfavour when you walk with God because the fragrance of His presence is the fragrance of favour
  10. The place of prayer is the place of greatness and relevance (Dan. 2:48)
  11. The place of prayer is the place of access to abundant resources and supplies (Dan. 2:48)
  12. The place of prayer is the place of access to Divine life (Ps. 133:1-3)
    The life of God flows in the presence of God; if a man knows how to pray, you cannot waste his life anyhow.

However the Blessing of God, like the human body, is a system; prayer must be working in sync with other factors for the blessing to rest on a person – if the heart is working well but the kidneys are not working well, then it is not well with the body yet.

OTHER THINGS THAT QUALIFY A PERSON FOR THE BLESSING:

  1. Upright and Godly living (Ps. 5:12; Prov. 11:11; Ps. 24:4-6)
    The Blessing of God is reserved for the righteous (Prov. 11:11)
  2. Covenant practice (Gen. 8:20-22; 9:1; 14:18-20; Gal. 3:9; Heb. 7:7-8; Mal. 3:8-10)
    This is the practice of giving to God, and paying the tithe.
    If there is seed time there must be harvest time; if there is a giving, there must be a receiving
    If you are not a giver, you will continue to be a beggar
    If you are not a tither, life will continue to remain tight for you!
  3. Kingdom Service (Ex. 23:25-26; Ps. 35:27, Mal. 3:17-18)
    This is serving God in His Kingdom
    If you will not be tired of serving, God will not be tired of blessing.
    You serve God by soul-winning (2Pet. 3:9)
    If you don’t know how to serve there is a limit to the Blessing of God in your life
