In HIS Presence


Read: Philippians 4:4-7

Meditation verse:“PRAY THROUGH IT ALLBe anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God” (Philippians 4:6).

Prayer is an intimate two-way communication between you and God. It is you talking to your Father as well as listening to Him speak to you. A key secret to a more peaceful and fulfilling life is praying your way through any and every situation in your life. You must learn to cast your cares upon the Lord and let Him carry your burdens.

In the place of prayers, your burdens are exchanged for God’s yoke which is light and easy. In the place of prayers, your understanding is enlightened, your mind is renewed, and your strength restored. In the place of prayers, you call back life into the things that are dead around you. You can speak life to every area of your life where are experiencing deadness. You do not have to live in marital deadness, or spiritual apathy, or physical weariness or financial misery. You can settle all of this in the place of prayer.

When burdened by the challenges of life, go to God in prayers, and pray through those challenges. Psalm 126 says: when The Lord brought back the captivity of Zion, we were like those who dream. God’s ability to restore life is beyond our understanding. Trees are burnt down and can grow back, broken bones heal, dead tissues are restored. That’s the life-giving power of God. He can renew your youth as the eagles (Isaiah 40:31). He can make all things new. He can restore the years the canker worms have eaten. And He has given you the keys of the kingdom so that whatever you bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever you lose on earth is loosed in heaven. He says you shall decree a thing and it shall be established for you. 

So, speak life into06 every area of your life that is experiencing dryness and watch God back you up. Whatever you allow is allowed, whatever you forbid is forbidden. Pray through any and every situation. Your harvest of joy and restoration will come.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
