Power In Praying
First John 5:14–15 says, “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.”
Therefore, we should never give up or back down. We need to keep praying. That is why Jesus said, “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7).
So brethren, never seize to pray any moment you get. I do it all the time, even whilst am walking, driving i use the opportunity to pray and prophecy to the lord. I know there is power in praying and the lord is hearing. Make it a habit that becomes who you are, and I can assure you will see what the power in praying can do in your life.
As you are reading now, say something encouraging to yourself and believe in it. Our Lord and Saviour will surely make that happen.
God Bless you all.
Whilst i was growing up, I remember there is this particular song i was taught in church which is called ‘The lord is the captain of my boat’ . The word boat can refer to any form of travelling such as car, air,sea,train etc. I always sing this song like a prayer whenever I am travelling. Below are the words. You can come up with a tune for it. I can tell you, after i sing this song all fear is gone because I know ‘The Lord is in control’.
The Lord is the captain of my boat, and he will drive me safely ( x2)
I will not be afraid, I rejoice in the Lord
For he is the captain of my boat
However strong the storm maybe, and He will drive me safely ( x2)
"Hold up my goings in thy path, that my footsteps slip not. Incline thine hear unto me and hear my speech, shew me thy lovingkindness and keep me as the apple of ur eyes, hide me under the shadow of ur wings". God will do abundantly more than u ask of Him IJN. Have faith and let righteousness be ur garment. Have a blessed week.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. James 1:2-3 NIV
My Brothers and sisters, never give up when you are growing through trials, the Lord is testing your faith. I have been in this situation several times, and my advise for you is to continue to pray about it and never give up. Stay blessed
