Do you know that the most important habit you need to form in other to succeed in life is praying? Do you know that with prayer you bring everything under control? I mean this with all sense of word, after going through this post you will rise up in your prayer life and head on for your success in triumphant victory.

If you really want to be effective everyday and in life then cultivate the habit of prayer, I’m convinced about this because I have seen things and people changed because of prayer.  Throughout Jesus’ time here on earth He never gave prayer a break, though He was GOD bodily He couldn’t do without prayer, He had a notion that people need to pray always and not faint (Luke 18:1).

Prayer is so important that Jesus even as He has ascended to heaven and seated in glory, He continues to pray for us. For the bible says that He lives to make intercession (prayers) for us Hebrews 7:25.

“Prayer should not be an activity we just partake of but a habit we ought to cultivate and live by” 

Here are the six revelations you need to know about prayer that will spark the prayer fire in you, this will inspire you to pray and develop a culture of prayer.

1. WE OVERCOME ALL THINGS THAT COME AGAINST US WITH THE WEAPON OF PRAYER

I have tasted the power and wonders of prayer first hand, and I can tell you that you as a child of GOD can only stay in command with prayer. You must know that there are forces that control the world, dark and satanic forces that wrestle against us (Ephesians 6:12). Those who engage in prayer become Victors, while those who do not pray become victims. That is why it is said that a prayer-less person is a powerless person, in this world you ought to work in power to stay relevant in life.

We are at war and so we must fight with the power of prayer

The Bible says in Ephesians 6:12 for we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

The point from this scripture is that we are at war, and this war is not a physical one we fight with guns or any form of physical weapons. Although these spiritual battles manifest itself in physical form, such as life crises, affliction and attack from people. We however do not fight this war from the physical but rather we address the spiritual root with the weapon of prayer.

The point from this scripture is that we are at war, and this war is not a physical one we fight with guns or any form of physical weapons. Although these spiritual battles manifest itself in physical form, such as life crises, affliction, temptation and attack from people. We however do not fight this war from the physical but rather we address the spiritual root with the weapon of prayer.

 

We attack wicked forces of darkness, challenges and sin and succeed over them with prayer

We all have an enemy who is the devil; he manifests himself in diverse forms, through people, circumstances, trials and temptations. The real enemy is not the people around you but the devil behind them; it’s just that some people allow the devil to use them which leads to their death and destruction.

“The actual enemy is not the people around you but the devil behind them”

It’s not enough to attack your enemies; whether it takes the form of challenges, host of wickedness or anything that wants to bring mockery to your life and destiny. You need to be successful in your attack, you need to win, that’s the point and you are sure of victory when you engage in prayers.

 

 

 

 

2. PRAYER IS A REQUIREMENT FOR LIFE SUCCESS

I have discovered that prayer is our energy and so I have learnt to pray everyday, seeing that it gives us the strength for the day. I have learnt that no matter how weak I am over any other thing I must not be weak to prayers. Prayer used to be boring for me; it used to be hard just like it is for many people today. As a matter of fact it’s the hardest thing for people to do among many things, but when I saw that without it one cannot go far in life I decided to cultivate the habit of prayer.

“To succeed in life there are habits we must cultivate, and prayer is one them”.

A person of prayer is a person equipped for success.

I have also come to see that it’s not enough to know something; you need to be empowered to succeed. Take an instance, a brilliant student who has read for an upcoming exam and is sure to clear all his papers because he has done a thorough job of reading for the exam. Only to get to the week of the exam and fall sick, seriously sick that he can’t get out of bed.

Now tell me, with all that the student has acquired by reading can he go for the exam?

He can’t seat for the exam except he recovers, this is why empowerment supersedes knowledge, so you need to be empowered in other to succeed.

Prayer is what gives you the access to that empowerment; it equips you to succeed by strengthening you and pulling down all opposition on your path to success in life.

 

3. WE REVIVE, RECOVER AND SUSTAIN EVERYTHING BY PRAYER

 

By praying you are able to revive whatsoever that seems to be dying in your life and the life of others. I have seen people revived by the power of prayer emotionally, spiritually, physically and otherwise.

I have experienced revival in my own life because I engaged in prayers you can have the same experience.

Prayer is an important key to open the door of deliverance

The apostles used this awesome power to break away from hostage both physically and spiritually, prayer was an integral part of their ministry and life.

When you engage in the habit of prayer you become a time bomb on a snooze button, there is nothing you can’t break away from, whether they are spiritual bondage, bad habits or life challenges. Prayer is a very powerful tool for deliverance and freedom of all kinds.

4. WE PLUG INTO DIVINE POWER SOURCE BY PRAYER

 

We all run down and burnout emotional and spiritually sometimes, there are sometimes our morale become low and we need some motivation to rise again, just like your phone needs to be charged when its low, similar way we need to be revived when we are down.

The phone or device which you are using to read this post I believe has a battery, and because there is power in that battery that is why your device is still on. That device will need to be charged again to stay on after you have used it for a long time.

When You Pray You Plug Yourself To Divine Power Source To Be Charged Up.

Yet we forget that we in turn need to be charged regularly, I bet you charge your phone everyday to keep it on. Same way you need to charge yourself to keep yourself up and so by praying you charge yourself spiritually for the day (James 1:20).

 

 

 

 

 

5. REAL AND ENDURING CHANGE BEGINS WITH PRAYER

 

 

People try to change others and situations by their own strength and skills to no avail, most times it even results into trouble. Even if they succeed the success is short lived, because you can’t really change people unless GOD changes them and you can’t change circumstance and situations unless GOD intervenes. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying we shouldn’t make efforts to make things better. All I’m saying is start by inviting GOD and He will lead you in a way that will bring enduring success.

If you really want to see anything begin by praying

Since I learnt this truth I do not struggle with anything or anyone anymore, although we have to do what we need to do to make people better and to make situations better. But allow GOD use you instead of going ahead without Him.

Daniel used this formula when He and His friends faced the greatest threat of their lives in the Babylonian empire. The king threatened to kill all the counselors including Daniel and his friends if they fail to tell him his dream and the meaning. The request was impossible but only with men, Daniel proved that with GOD all things are possible, and a man of prayer can tap into that divine possibility. (Daniel 2)

You need to learn to call upon GOD to intervene through prayers, and He will give you the required strength and wisdom to deal with the situations. As you do this, GOD levels the ground for you by removing every mountain and making every crocked way straight for you.

Prayer helps us Get GOD’s leading to bring about change

I am an advocate of change and I strongly believe in taking responsibility, but I have also learnt that GOD has to move first while I follow His leading.

This is what brings result and desired change that endures, I have seen people try to change their spouse by force, and I have seen people try to change their children with brutal force. I have seen people try to influence decisions by craftiness only to lead to no where.

Your intentions might be good but no one has the power to change anything, except GOD gives you the enablement. That is why a person given to prayer becomes the person of change, and it takes divine intervention to bring about change.

“The most powerful person in the world is not the president of a country, or the army or the men of great wealth but that person who can command answered prayers”

 

We are able to influence and affect anything with prayer

Prayer is a force that turns things around and that is why you should never joke with prayer. I have seen people completely changed; I have seen a problem that seemed impossible resolved by prayer.

If you want to be a great influencer, learn to pray because that’s the place of real change. I have seen miracles that surprised me through prayer and I’m sure you will see the same if you can engage in prayer.

Prayer helps you to tap into divine wisdom, secret and power to stay ahead of the challenges of life, prayer opens you up for divine revelation and understanding to deal with life.

You receive the stamina and strength to withstand what you could ordinarily not stand against. When you pray early in the morning before going out you receive divine inspiration that carries you all through the day, despite the negative things out there they don’t get to you. You open yourself up to GOD’s leading for which you will be sure of success.
