Empowered in the Place of Prayers
FEB. 7

Acts 4:31, Acts 16:25
And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. *And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them.

Author PhotoJust like Jesus, the early church experienced considerable empowerment and victory as they devoted time to prayer and fellowship with God. The result of their prayers was usually great manifestations of God's power and the move of the Spirit in and through their lives. In Matthew 21:13, Jesus declared that His house was intended to be a house of prayer, not a den of thieves. Beloved, God wants us to be men and women of prayer. There is no way we will be able to successfully occupy till Christ comes without prayer. It is good to know the Word of God and it is also good to be prayerful. Our prayers serve as one of the greatest opportunities to activate the Word of God and God's will in our lives and on the earth.

In the same manner that Jesus did not take His prayers lightly, we too must not take our prayers lightly. The Bible records various occasions when Jesus continued all night in prayer unto God, Luke 6:12. In Matthew 26:41, Jesus told His disciples to watch and pray to avoid falling into temptation. He reminded them that although the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak. Many times, our spirit is also willing and desirous of spending quality time in prayer with God but our flesh just does not want us to. We must deliberately allow our spirit to maintain dominion over our flesh and give ourselves more to prayer and fellowship with God. The more we do this, the more our spirit will dominate the flesh even in other areas of our lives. Substantial grace and empowerment awaits you in the place of prayer. New realms and heights of fellowship and intimacy with God will manifest as you intentionally spend time in prayer and fellowship with God.
PRAYER FOCUS: Receive grace to take your time of prayer and fellowship with God to the next level. Ask God to draw you nearer. Tell Him you desire a deeper fellowship with Him.
