Seeds of Destiny for Sunday 24 October 2021 | Devotional Message
Prayer has been confirmed to be one of the vital weapons of the child of God in the journey of life and destiny. Prayer is one of the greatest tools of a successful child of God. A Christian who neglects the practice of prayer lacks the power to fulfil destiny.
In the course of His ministry on earth, Jesus Christ prayed abundantly and consistently (Luke 11:1-2). Our anchor Scripture above makes it clear that as children of God, we are to pray without ceasing.
Praying is a pathway to fulfilling destiny. Great men in Scripture like Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Joshua, Daniel, Peter, Paul etc., were also great men of Prayer. No one can amount to anything in life if prayer is relegated to the background in his life. So, we are admonished to pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
Now, in life, one of the things we do without ceasing is breathing. Therefore, if we are to pray without ceasing, it means we are expected to pray as we breathe. If we are to live a fulfilling life on earth, we must pray as we breathe.
Beloved, it is not what you do occasionally that guarantees results, but what you do consistently. If you must see the results of prayer, it must be done without ceasing.
My counsel is, make up your mind to pray always. Refuse to pray only when there is an emergency.
REMEMBER THIS: It is not what you do occasionally that guarantees results, but what you do consistently.
1. Make up your mind to pray without ceasing.
2. Refuse the emergency approach to prayer.
PRAYER: Thank You Lord for Your Word to me today. I receive the grace to pray without ceasing, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: One of the reasons why many believers suffer from unanswered prayers for many years is because bitterness is present in their lives. Culled from “AM I BITTER?” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY READING: Luke 10-12
REFLECTION: Tune your desires towards God continually. Share your thoughts, feelings and emotions with God continually. Utter a word of prayer as a burden pops upon your heart. Don’t defer it. Release praise and thanks continually. Doing so is literally praying without ceasing.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: Grace for effortless praying is released in Jesus’ Name.
