BIBLE READING: 2 PETER 1:16-21
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. 1John 5:14-15(NKJV).
To realise optimum results from the time you devote to prayer, you have to know when to offer prayers of repentance; prayers of thanksgiving; prayers of intercession and prayers of supplication. In doing these, you are raising prayers from the earth to heaven.
There is a point you get to in prayer and you have to take your position in the heavenly places with Christ and begin to decree the things you want to establish on earth. When you pray from heaven to the earth, you speak with the full authority of God and of Christ and the decrees you make are established unto you. “You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto you: and the light shall shine upon your ways” (Job 22:28).
When you are praying from the heaven to earth is also the time to prophesy. In prophesying, you are either fore-telling or you are forth-telling. When fore-telling under the prophetic anointing, you speak things that will happen in the future. When you are forth-telling under the prophetic anointing, you create things that will come to be with your spoken word.
Effectiveness in prayer demands that you have good knowledge of the tools that are available to you and know which ones to apply as occasion demands. God never fails and He never turns deaf ears to our prayers. Whenever things are not working out well, it is either you have not been praying enough or you have not been praying the right kind of prayers. Get back to your prayer altar; answers are waiting for you there.
• Worship God from the depths of your heart.
• Command all mountains before you to dissolve.
The fire on my prayer altar will not go down in Jesus name. I commit to praying without ceasing in Jesus name.
