The Efficacy Of Prayer And The System Of God’s Help || Apostle Philip Cephas
We are mandated by Christ to be a praying church. In the End time, if the church is to bring exploit it has to be a praying church. Jesus brought a Restoration of prayer. Jesus showed the disciples how they should embrace the kingdom of God. If the Kingdom is to invade the earth, Jesus showed us the pattern and protocol which is prayer. Prayer is the pattern that brings the expression of God’s kingdom on earth.
Men ought to pray in order to be clothed with power that they may establish the kingdom of God on earth. We were born for a purpose and that purpose can’t find expression if we don’t pray. Any man that cannot pray will become a prey to the enemy. Every move of God will proceed and be sustained by prayer and operated by prayer. Your true self is in God. You will need to journey into your reality through prayer.
Revival is when we awake and begin to pray. if we want to contact God’s fire and bring revival we Will need to subscribe to the upper room experience. We will need to have the experience of the upper room because, it’s a place of encounter, its a place of prayer and encounter. When we pray we intercourse with the spirit of truth and the reality of truth becomes part of our lives.
You will beat tomorrow by your prayers today. Satan fights the prayer Life of men because, man is designed to be sustained by prayer. It’s impossible to pray if God does not help us. We need to be helped to pray. The holy spirit was released to help us pray by quickening us to pray. When we are willing to humble ourselves and pray, we will bring God’s intervention into the natural realm. One of the ways to secure the security of God among us is by praying. You can’t walk on earth effectively without power. Power is not limited to the Apostles or Prophets, we all need power. prayer is required for you to enter into the realm of power.
We survive in the Kingdom of God by warring through prayer. we need to win our battles by prayer. Our tomorrow depends on prayer. If we don’t pray, many will deny Jesus because, there won’t be strength to witness him. When Peter started praying, he was willing to lay down his life for Jesus. If we pray as a church, counseling session will reduce because, prayer solves most of those challenges and problems. A man of prayer is a man of power.
Men who rise in the kingdom of God are men helped by God. Men of impact and relevance are men God have helped. We need to be helped by God if we are to bring impact upon the face of the earth. Man is a creature who lives by depending on God. That’s how God designed the creature called man. He designed man to live by depending on him (God).
And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.
And out of the ground made the LORD God to grow every tree that is pleasant to the sight, and good for food; the tree of life also in the midst of the garden, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.
God puts the man whom he made in the middle of two trees. The tree of “life” and the tree of “knowledge of good and evil.” The tree of “life”symbolize Jesus as life, while the tree of “knowledge of Good and evil” symbolize death and everything that is outside of God. The principle of the tree of life is significance to man’s dependent upon God as his life.
But man ate of the tree of “knowledge of Good and evil” which is the principle of living a life of independence. When man ate of the tree of “knowledge of good and evil” he exercised his own will to live a life of independence. Man fell because, he decided to be independent of God. Whenever we reject the help of God and refuse to depend on him, what happens is that we fall from greatness.
We rise to greatness by the help of God. our greatness is sustained and maintained by the help of God. The holy spirit is given to us to be our present day help. If we can depend on the holy spirit to receive daily of the supply of help that comes from him, we will be men of impact and exploit in the kingdom.
May God help us all.
