TODAY’S HEADLINE: Repeated Prayers
John 16:24 (KJV) “Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full”
Praying incessantly means praying at all times. These praying repeatedly and endlessly connote praying relentlessly. Prayer is a spiritual communication, rapport, banter and dialogue with God. It is necessarily a cord for divine relationship; closer ties; and demonstration of the Kingdom love. However, building spiritual ability, capacity and capability is only a deam, wish, and mirage without developing effectual, fervent prayer lifestyle. Repeated prayer is not a taboo, babbling, or heresy; rather it compels heavenly attention. This is invariably a P.U.S.H. i.e Pray Until Something Happens. Hear this in (1 Thessalonians 5:17) “Pray without ceasing”. There are many Bible examples of repeated, incessant and compulsive prayer interactions with the Most High: Elijah repeatedly prayed on Mt. Carmel until it rained. Moses repeatedly prayed against departure. Apostle Paul repeatedly prayed against a thorn in his flesh. Elisha repeatedly laid himself on the corpse of that lad until he was resuscitated. Jesus prayed several times against His gruesome cross at Gethesmane. Jesus, on another occation prayed for a blind man more than once before he could received back his clear vision. Tennacity is a major factor inducing answered prayers. Listen to the conclusion of one of Jesus’s parable bothering on the essences of repeated prayers in (Luke 18:5) “Yet because this widow troubleth me, I will avenge her, lest by her continual coming she weary me”. Remember, Jacob said to the angel he wrestled with; I will not let you go until you bless me. I admonish you repeat your request always with faith and strong reasons. Bombard the heavenly throne with your ever steady prayers. May God hear whenever you call. Amen.
