Summary: AN INSPIRATION TO ENLIGHTEN AND ENHANCE OUR PRAYER ALTAR AND BEHAVIOR/CHARACTER IN PRAYER
Theme: The Mystery of Midnight Prayer
Let me begin by saying, acknowledging that God is our only source of power (Psalms 62:11), every sermon He gives me by revelation via His son Jesus, the Spirit of God urges me to always inform my audience to pray in order to have manifestation of the spoken word, so in a nutshell, please exercise your faith and pray those attach prayer points at the end of the sermon. A sermon without salvation and prayer to bring down the supernatural is incomplete knowing that our foundation being born of a woman is faulty. The best and only way to amend our faulty foundation is via prayer in the name of Jesus. (psalms 11:3; 51:5).
It's crystal clear from scriptural references that the reason many life and destinies are caged, afflicted and stagnated is not because of unanswered prayers but un-offered prayers to our greatest Ally, the Almighty God. Purpose of a thing is viable to experiencing the value of that thing, like a wise man once said when purpose is not known abuse is inevitable and I concord and added, even if purpose is known, failure to keep being connected to the source of that purpose maintenance may not be in view. Note that the purpose of prayer is to bring to full manifestation the intended purpose of God for mankind (Ephesians 1:4).
WHAT IS PRAYER? Prayer is a means of communicating with God, it is primarily offered by addressing God directly in the name of Jesus. Prayer may include petition, entreaty, supplication, thanksgiving, praise, hymns, and lament. The Bible stresses the importance of prayer and commends a life of prayer that is characterized by simplicity of expression, sincerity of heart and trust in God’s ability. It is important to note that prayer plays a vital role in our quest to access more of God’s glory. It is a ladder we can climb to enter into God’s presence. The more you pray, the more of His presence you will encounter, leading you into more of His glory.
WHAT IS MIDNIGHT PRAYER? It's prayer offer to God at such time ranging from 12midnite, till 3midnite, anytime within that time. it's also call a midnight prayer because the day actually starts at such time.
