Effective Prayer for Progress
“Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you.”
Jeremiah 29:12
Unstoppable Progress is possible on the platform of effective prayer. God is a progressive God! He has what it takes to enforce our progress in life. The secret of our progress is in His hands. More enthralling, is the fact that we have an assurance from God Himself that when we offer prayer unto Him, He will hear us! What a beautiful promise from a loving Father!
Why do we need God?
We sure need God to command superlative progress this year. As such, it behooves on us to become very prayerful. Prayer remains a veritable way to command results, as we can do nothing without Him. Jesus said “without me you can do nothing.” Your business or family will always require the involvement of God.
How to prevail in prayers:
1. Have confidence in God’s ability to answer!
The Bible says, “And this is the confidence that we have in Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He heareth us. And if we know that He heareth us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desire of Him.”
1John 5:14-15
We can travail and prevail in prayers if our faith is resolute in the fact that God is powerful and faithful enough to answer us. Our faith in prayers should not be that of a passing attitude which changes with the wind or with feelings and circumstances. The Bible says, “A man can receive nothing except it be given him from above.”
John3:27
2. Have confidence in God’s power to crush your enemies!
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Luke 10:19
No doubt, there are many serpents, scorpions or adversaries out there not wanting us to make progress this year. But they shall be crushed in Jesus name! God is well able to crush them through us. With effective prayers we can engage the power of God to frustrate their tokens or machinations against our progress. Yes! We can!
3. Have confidence in your God-given keys!
“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”
Matthew 16:19
As believers, we have been given keys or authority to bind and loose! We have the authority to command the release of our blessings. We can determine our outcomes via effective prayers. Heaven responds favourably to us even as we pray! Arise and pray! No two ways about this divine strategy!
I decree and declare that your progress shall be unstoppable this year in Jesus mighty name!
Yours sincerely,
