Lord Jesus we are here at your feet again
Teach us Your word again in Jesus name
And tonight we shall be looking at COMMANDING RESULT IN PRAYER
So many times whenever we are asked to define prayer
What we use to say is that. PRAYER IS A MEANS OF COMMUNICATION WITH GOD
That definition may be right but it is not absolutely correct
Prayer is more than that
Prayer concept is very wide
Prayer is a system
Put it this way
It is a system of interaction between the celestial and the terrestial
What I mean by it is a system is that there are many things to know about it
It is complex
Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Paul says pray with ALL PRAYERS
which means that we have diverse kinds of prayer
If you say that PRAYER IS ALL ABOUT COMMUNICATING WITH GOD
What can you call this:
And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
What Paul did here is that He prayed
But we see prayer here as a command
Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.
What about Peter at the beautiful gate?
He prayed too?
But did he pray to God ?
No, But he rather healed him
Here, we see prayer as Healing
What about Paul praying for the Philippians?
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Here prayer is seem as a blessing
Let me give us one more example
And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
Here prayer is seen as a communion
Paul and Jesus was communicating
Another understanding you must have is that there are dispensational prayer system
DISPENSATIONAL PRAYER SYSTEM
1. Pre – Jesus prayer system
2. Peri- Jesus prayer system
3. Post Jesus prayer system
The Prayer system before Jesus was that they pray to God through mediums which are priests, prophets …..
But the prayer system during Jesus was the pattern Jesus gave them which we call LORD’S PRAYER
The post Jesus prayer system is the one we are using which must be done in the NAME OF JESUS
Now the prayer system Jesus gave us while He was on earth is a guide for us to are in this dispemsation
The prayer model is divided into 3, which are:
1. Giving thanks
2. Pray for the kingdom
3. Pray for your personal needs
After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
We’ve dwell much on the importance of the KINGDOM PRAYER. and how we can harness it for our spiritual growth in the first part of this teaching
So, tonight we shall be looking at HOW TO GET RESULT IN PRAYER I.e our personal need
Some people are no more praying and are not fervent in their prayer life because they are praying and are not getting result
They conclude that what will be will be
So, they have decided that to pray to God is not a way out of their request but rather to look for another way outside God
But the reason they are not getting result is that they are not approaching God base on His terms and conditions of prayer
If you you are using MTN mobile network and you want to check your account balance and you dial *124#, are you going to get the result you desire?
Of course No
Because that’s not MTN code of checking account balance
The same thing is with God
You have to approach Him base on His terms and conditions of prayer
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for HE that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of THEM that diligently seek him.
Read this verse of the bible again and again
You will see HE and THEM
He is the person that just want to pray
Them are those that have prayed and they got result
So, “He” must know them and understand the button that “THEM” pressed that made them got the result they got when they prayed
HOW TO COMMAND RESULT IN PRAYER
1. Know your prayer point/ Have a desire
Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
It won’t surprise you to know that some people are praying without having a prayer point
Some are praying
They have a prayer point but they are not specific
Lord I want you to give me a car is a prayer point but not a specific one
God give me money
How much do you want ?
Ok, if God give you 2,000# when you need 100,000# is it not money
You have to be specific
Jesus says WHAT THINGS SOEVER YE DESIRE
So, you need to create a desire
2. KNOW HIS WILL
What is a will?
A will is a legal term, another word we can use for it is TESTAMENT
A will is a written document written by a testator to state and share the properties of his children
1 John 5:14
And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to *his will* he heareth us:
According to this verse of the Bible
Jesus is the one who left a will for us
And what’s that will? THE OLD AND NEW TESTAMENT
So, if you must get your desire
You must be able to present it in His will for you before it can be yours.
You must believe that because the word of God has said it, it has been given to you already
Look at how NLT put this verse
24. I tell you, you can pray for anything, and if you believe that you’ve received it, it will be yours.
If you believe that you have RECEIVED IT
It’s not if you believe that YOU WILL RECEIVE IT
bUt you must believe that it is yours already before it will be delivered to you
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:
That your request is a spiritual blessing since you can get a word for it in the Bible ready
So God has blessed you with it all
All you just need to do is to claim it while you pray
You don’t beg God for it
You rather claim your blessing
And the last step is SAY IT
4. SAY IT
This is further divided into praying the prayer and CDA+
For with the heart man *believeth* unto righteousness; and with the mouth *confession* is made unto salvation.
This verse has been shrunk to salvation messages alone
But it is beyond that
When you believe with your heart
You must say what you believe
Because out if the abundance of the mouth , the mouth speakth
So, the first stage of speaking is that you pray
And after praying you begin to use CDA+ to get the work done
What is CDA+ is a revelation God gave to my father and the house of SADOZ
C – Confess
A – Announce
+ – Imagination
So many testimonies has been backing this revelation us, you wish to know more about it?
