ANCHOR SCRIPTURE(S): JEREMIAH 33:3
SERVICE OBJECTIVE(S): Understanding the components of productive and effective prayer
When the right actions are taken, the right outcome is mandatory
We don’t just serve a God who hears prayers, we serve a God who answers prayers.
COMPONENTS OF PRODUCTIVE PRAYER:
- Light and insight in the Word (John 15:7; Rom. 10:17; Heb. 11:6; Ps. 43:3)
4a. The Word of God is fuel for prayer
Light and insight from the Word are natural fuels for prayer; those who possess the Word flow in prayer effortlessly
4b. Light or insight from the Word is the food of faith and faith is the requirement for answered prayer (Rom. 10:17; Heb. 11:6; Ps. 43:3; Hos. 14:2; 1Kgs. 18:36)
The Light from God’s Word is the vehicle to God’s Presence
Those who know how to take the Word know how to turn to the Lord (Hos. 14:2)
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WITH PRODUCTIVE PRAYER LIVES BASED ON LIGHT AND INSIGHT FROM THE WORD:
- Elijah (1Kgs. 18:36)
Elijah revealed that his actions of calling down fire and stopping the rain were all products of the Word
- Daniel (Dan. 9:2; Jer. 29:10; 1:11-12)
Whenever you can see it well and clear from the Book, God is in a hurry to perform it (Jer. 1:11-12)
- Endeavour to maintain a steady intake of the Word so that you can be Word-filled, hence prayerful (John 15:7)
The raw Word, devotional word, preached word in tapes and DVDs
Just the way you need to service the car, not because there is a journey but just to remain serviceable
- Endeavour to search for and locate appropriate Light for supplication in times of confrontations, challenges or need (Ps. 43:3)
The time you take to prepare to pray, to locate the relevant light needed to pray, is as important as the prayer itself
COMPONENTS OF PRODUCTIVE PRAYER:
- The Understanding of the Will of God (1John 5:14-15; Matt. 6:9-10; 14:24-28)
5a. The Will of God is prophecy waiting to be enforced at the altar of prayer (Matt. 6:9-10)
The Will of God is answered prayer waiting to be prayed
5b. The Will of God imparts boldness and confidence to the heart of man at the place of prayer (Matt. 14:24-28)
A thousand witches or killers can’t threaten you when you know that it is God’s Will for you to fulfil your days
SCRIPTURAL EXAMPLES OF PEOPLE WITH PRODUCTIVE PRAYER LIVES BASED ON THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE WILL OF GOD:
- Daniel (Dan. 9:2; Jer. 29:10-11)
- Our Master Jesus (Luke 22:41-43)
If you are ready to line up with the Will of God you can never be lacking in strength, force, fire, boldness, confidence and audacity
- Endeavour to be completely surrendered to the Will of God in all issues pertaining to your life (Rom. 12:1-2)
Whatever you want for yourself may look beautiful but it is never as colourful or as wonderful as what God wants for you
- Endeavour to seek the will of God on particular issues of interest to you (Jer. 6:16)
While you pray, just align with the Will of God. When the will of God is not clear, just pray out your heart but when the will of God is clear, align with the will of God.
