Hello Amazing One,
How’s your week coming along? January seems to be on a flight this year 😀 Does it feel the same way for you?
You may have noticed that many believers and churches have personal and congregational days of prayer and fasting, especially in January. While it’s definitely a way of setting order to the New Year, many do not make the best of this opportunity. Not because they do not want to, but the ‘how’ is mostly lacking.
This message by Dr Myles Munroe expounds on the ‘how’ of prayer and fasting. He speaks particularly to the kingdom principle of petitioning.
According to Dr Munroe, the subject of prayer is the most misunderstood yet the most important kingdom concept. He further reveals that as important as it is, many believers do not how to pray; which is why although many pray, they do not receive answers to their petitions.
He referred to a striking statement by John Wesley, which many may find difficult to come to terms with. “It seems that without God, man cannot and without man, God will not.” This robust quote means there has to be a partnership between heaven and earth before prayer can be answered.
Using Abraham and Moses as case studies, Dr Munroe explains that God would always need man’s permission before He can operate on earth. Abraham, a one-man army negotiated with God until he was able to rescue Lot and his family from being destroyed along with Sodom and Gomorrah. Similarly, through Moses, God was able to rescue the Israelites from Egypt. It’s clearer now right? God does need your permission to answer your prayers!
This message is an eye-opener for every believer who must prevail in the place of prayer. It lasts about 60 minutes and it’s freely available to watch. Do we recommend it? A million times, yes!
