So many Christians had lost confidence in the power of prayer. Some will say i have prayed and prayed without definite good result. But the question is this, Does God answers prayers, the answer is YES.
God answered the prayer of a barren woman (Hannah) “And Hannah answered and said, No, my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine nor strong drink, but have poured out my soul before the Lord, Then Eli answered and said, Go in peace: and the God of Israel grant thee thy petition that thou hast asked of him, And they rose up in the morning early, and worshipped before the Lord, and returned, and came to their house to Ramah: and Elkanah knew Hannah his wife; and the Lord remembered her.
Wherefore it came to pass, when the time was come about after Hannah had conceived, that she bare a son, and called his name Samuel, saying, Because I have asked him of the Lord.”( 1 Samuel 1:15,17,19-20).
God answered the prayer of the brethren when Peter was kept in Prison to be killed later. He Almighty God miraculously delivered Peter in response to the petitions of the saints.
” Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison. And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly.
And his chains fell off from his hands. And the angel said unto him, Gird thyself, and bind on thy sandals. And so he did. And he saith unto him, Cast thy garment about thee, and follow me. And he went out, and followed him; and wist not that it was true which was done by the angel; but thought he saw a vision. When they were past the first and the second ward, they came unto the iron gate that leadeth unto the city; which opened to them of his own accord: and they went out, and passed on through one street; and forthwith the angel departed from him. And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.” (Acts 12:1,6-11)
Elijah prayed also and God answered spontaneously by bringing fire that consumed the animal of Sacrifice where water burned as if it is Petrol. “Hear me, O Lord, hear me, that this people may know that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart back again. Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the burnt sacrifice, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw it, they fell on their faces: and they said, The Lord, he is the God; the Lord, he is the God. (1 Kings 18: 37-39).
Dearly Beloved, God still answers prayers till date. This book in your hand is one of the proofs that God answers prayers.
In Our Church we see marine powers surrender to the authority of Christ, Barren conceived, Sinners saved and household enemies’ powers being exposed and destroyed. Beloved of God Authoritatively, I say without missing words “GOD ANSWERS PRAYERS”.
The Question is what type of prayer that brings result.
A Prayer From a pure Heart
” If I Regard iniquity in my heart, The Lord will not hear me (Psalm 66:18), ” He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel …..” (Numbers 23:21), “The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD; But the prayer of the upright is his delight” (Proverbs 15:8).
“Now we know that God heareth not sinners, But if any man be a worshipper of God and doeth his will he heareth” (John 9:31)
The Uniform Testimonies of the scripture is that when one is living in sin of Fornication, Adultery, lesbianism or homosexualism, drinking and smoking, having chains of boyfriends and even concubines and start using a book like this to fight marine Kingdom, you will end up getting little nor no result.
Bu if you can humble yourself and acknowledge that you have sinned against God and repent God will show mercy unto you. “Let the wicked forsake his ways and the unrighteous man his thoughts and let him return unto the LORD and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, For he will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:7). “If we say we have not sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us: if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (1John 1:9).
Dearly beloved, if you have not sincerely given your life to Christ, you can do that now “PLEASE DON’T JUMP OVER T THE NEXT PAGE”.
SIMPLE SINNERS PRAYERS
Oh Lord God, I have realised I have sinned against you, Show mercy unto meLet the blood of Jesus Christ that washes whiter than snow wash away my sins in Jesus Christ name, I welcome Jesus into my life and from today be my Lord and persona Saviour In Jesus name Thank You for saving me In Jesus Name. Amen.
Having done that, I assure you by faith, you are now a child of God, but never you go back to sins. Join a Bible Believing Church around you and continue to serve the Lord in his beauty of Holiness till we see one another in heaven.
Prayer of Faith
Faith is very vital in spiritual warfare and other prayers in the first place God is s spirit “ God is a spirit and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and n truth” ( John4:24) For us to commune with a God we cannot see physically, touch, we really need faith to contact him and also to remain in fellowship “ But without Faith it is impossible to please him; for he that cometh to God must believe he is and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him” ( Hebrew 11:6).
Secondly, the marine spirits are invisible demons yet causing havocs to humanity. Except we believe that they are real. “And he said unto them, I behold Satan as lightening fall from heaven” (Luke 10:18), you cannot make use of power available without Faith. “ Behold I give unto you Power to tread on serpent and scorpions and over all the powers of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you” (Luke 10:19)
What is Faith?
“It is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrew 11:1).
Faith means believing that God cannot lie, as we engage I this spiritual warfare, we must believe that greater is he that is in us than they that are in the World. You must not doubt or look down on yourself. You must not be a Pastor before you can fight the Powers of the Marine.
Whosoever that count God faithful to his promises and stand on such and challenges Satan, Heaven will give the person all the necessary backings and at the end you will win. Praise God!!
Prayer that Refuses to Take No for an Answer
One thing you must know concerning the marine Kingdom is that they are stubborn. “Hit and Run” cannot win. You must be consistently fighting even when there is no sign of the powers trying to go, press on, keep standing and making your declarations based on God’s promises and at the end victory will be yours in Jesus name.
“And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him.
And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not.
For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country. Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding.
And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them. And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.
And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done.
And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid.” (Mark 5:1-15)
After much pleadings by these marine spirits tormenting this man, Jesus commanded them to depart from the man and they left and entered into the Lords of swines and transported themselves back to their home base which is the water and drown those animals.
The end result was that, the former mad man came back to his right mind. All that marine kingdom had done in your life, family, Business or political, or academic career you will destroy them and recover your “Originality” In Jesus Christ Name. Amen.
“In the third year of Cyrus king of Persia a thing was revealed unto Daniel, whose name was called Belteshazzar; and the thing was true, but the time appointed was long: and he understood the thing, and had understanding of the vision. In those days I Daniel was mourning three full weeks.
I ate no pleasant bread, neither came flesh nor wine in my mouth, neither did I anoint myself at all, till three whole weeks were fulfilled. And in the four and twentieth day of the first month, as I was by the side of the great river, which is Hiddekel; And he said unto me, O Daniel, a man greatly beloved, understand the words that I speak unto thee, and stand upright: for unto thee am I now sent.
And when he had spoken this word unto me, I stood trembling. Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words. But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but, lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me; and I remained there with the kings of Persia.” (Daniel 10:1-4,11-13).
The Spiritual Prince of Persia arrested Angel Gabriel that God gave messages to bring down to Daniel on earth and kept him in Prison for Twenty –One days in the Heavenliest. As the messenger of great tidings of great Joy was in prison, Daniel on earth was Indefatigable (Refused to accept defeat) he was on his knees fighting spiritual Warfare.
As Daniel persevered, his persistence, Patience wearied the power that behold the angel and God could not keep quiet and he sent the Arc- Angel Michael who came down with fury scattered all the demons blocking Angel Gabriel passage and he came down and delivered the message. Beloved of God, Don’t give up until you win.
Some marine foundation in some families, kindred, communities may not be simple to destroy but one thing I know is with God all things are possible. Jesus talked about importunity or constancy in prayer with this story
“And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint; Saying, There was in a city a judge, which feared not God, neither regarded man: And there was a widow in that city; and she came unto him, saying, Avenge me of mine adversary.
And he would not for a while: but afterward he said within himself, Though I fear not God, nor regard man; Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me. And the Lord said, Hear what the unjust judge saith. And shall not God avenge his own elect, which cry day and night unto him, though he bear long with them? I tell you that he will avenge them speedily. Nevertheless when the Son of man cometh, shall he find faith on the earth?” ( Luke 18:1-8)
Jacob wrestled with the Angel and prevailed at Jabbok
“And Jacob went on his way, and the angels of God met him.
And when Jacob saw them, he said, This is God’s host: and he called the name of that place Mahanaim. And Jacob sent messengers before him to Esau his brother unto the land of Seir, the country of Edom. And he commanded them, saying, Thus shall ye speak unto my lord Esau; Thy servant Jacob saith thus, I have sojourned with Laban, and stayed there until now: And I have oxen, and asses, flocks, and menservants, and womenservants: and I have sent to tell my lord, that I may find grace in thy sight. And the messengers returned to Jacob, saying, We came to thy brother Esau, and also he cometh to meet thee, and four hundred men with him.
Then Jacob was greatly afraid and distressed: and he divided the people that was with him, and the flocks, and herds, and the camels, into two bands; And said, If Esau come to the one company, and smite it, then the other company which is left shall escape.
And Jacob said, O God of my father Abraham, and God of my father Isaac, the Lord which saidst unto me, Return unto thy country, and to thy kindred, and I will deal well with thee: I am not worthy of the least of all the mercies, and of all the truth, which thou hast shewed unto thy servant; for with my staff I passed over this Jordan; and now I am become two bands. Deliver me, I pray thee, from the hand of my brother, from the hand of Esau: for I fear him, lest he will come and smite me, and the mother with the children. And thou saidst, I will surely do thee good, and make thy seed as the sand of the sea, which cannot be numbered for multitude.
And he lodged there that same night; and took of that which came to his hand a present for Esau his brother; Two hundred she goats, and twenty he goats, two hundred ewes, and twenty rams, Thirty milch camels with their colts, forty kine, and ten bulls, twenty she asses, and ten foals.
And he delivered them into the hand of his servants, every drove by themselves; and said unto his servants, Pass over before me, and put a space betwixt drove and drove. And he commanded the foremost, saying, When Esau my brother meeteth thee, and asketh thee, saying, Whose art thou? and whither goest thou? and whose are these before thee? Then thou shalt say, They be thy servant Jacob’s; it is a present sent unto my lord Esau: and, behold, also he is behind us. And so commanded he the second, and the third, and all that followed the droves, saying, On this manner shall ye speak unto Esau, when ye find him. And say ye moreover, Behold, thy servant Jacob is behind us.
For he said, I will appease him with the present that goeth before me, and afterward I will see his face; peradventure he will accept of me.
So went the present over before him: and himself lodged that night in the company. And he rose up that night, and took his two wives, and his two womenservants, and his eleven sons, and passed over the ford Jabbok. And he took them, and sent them over the brook, and sent over that he had.
And Jacob was left alone; and there wrestled a man with him until the breaking of the day. And when he saw that he prevailed not against him, he touched the hollow of his thigh; and the hollow of Jacob’s thigh was out of joint, as he wrestled with him. And he said, Let me go, for the day breaketh.
And he said, I will not let thee go, except thou bless me. And he said unto him, What is thy name? And he said, Jacob. And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.” ( Genesis 32:1-28).
Oh Child of God prepare your heart for a fight, Jacob using gift to bribe his senior brother, couldn’t work, his simple prayer couldn’t work work either. When all had failed he was left alone. In the course of being alone warring a spiritual warfare an Angel of God came on his way. He held him and said I will never let thee go unless you bless me.
It was a serious fight, I can hear Jacob in my spirit saying all these, I have been looking for somebody from the throne of God who will change my ugly situation and take away the hatred in my senior brother’s heart toward me and I found you one on one and you are saying I should let you go for the day is breaking, if you will kill me please do, let it be on record that it is the merciful Angel of God that killed me than to die in the hands of my Senior Brother. After much wrestling the Angel asked him, what is your name?
Beloved, there will be lot of spiritual resistance, but press on you will win. For the First time in the life of Jacob, he told the truth and said I am Jacob not what I answered many years ago (Esau). The Angel of God said, from today your name shall be called Israel as prince you have prevailed. Halleluiah!!
Your name shall be changed from FAILURE TO SUCCESS, BARREN WOMAN TO MOTHER OF SEVEN, OVER RIPED PLANTAIN THAT NO MAN CAN PLUCK TO MARRIED WOMAN In the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ. Your life will not remain the same in Jesus name. You are the instrument God will use to bring deliverance to your family, I can hear Your Amen! Amen!!.
