Avoid repetitive prayer, pause to praise God

Published

The Bible speaking in the book of John l0:10 says: “The thief cometh not, but to steal, to kill, and to destroy; but Christ has come to give life and give it abundantly. Help me visualize the protocol I will go through in order to see President Buhari of Nigeria, Governor Ambode of Lagos State, Nigeria, to obtain visa from American Embassy as a Nigeria ( THE WAKING UP AT 4P.M ANG LEAVING HOME AT 5P.M IN ORDER TO GET TO THE EMBASSY AT 6P.M FOR AN 80’CLOCK APPOINTMENT OF HAVING TO GET TO THE AIRPORT 6 HOURS BEFORE DEPARTURE THAT IS IF YOU WERE GRANTED THE VISA and upon travelling to U.S.A taking into consideration the conversation rate of naira to dollar there is no guarantee that I will not be turned back at the Airport in New York, America.

 

Maybe because it is free

 

Yet I can talk to the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, The Omnipotent, the Omniscience, my Alpha and Omega any time any day, in my car in Lagos, Nigeria road traffic, in the bedroom, toilet, kitchen while cooking, anytime, anywhere, what a privilege. James 4:8 states: “Draw near to God and he will draw near to you.

 

“Come to me all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me for I am gentle and lowly of heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light” – Matt. 11:28-30 Remember to create a particular time and place to communicate daily with Father God, this assists you from distraction while praying.

 

Like I sometimes do you can decide to pray and start thinking of daily issues or problems and this will distract your mind from praying. After praising him, you should not come up with prayer request, talk to him as your best friend, pour out your anxiety, fears and worries, confess your sins and the Holy Spirit will minister to you and give you peace. It is when you have this peace that you can now make your request known him and the Holy Spirit will assist you not to ask amiss.

 

I will not forget my experience in the   Lord in respect of my first child who had measles for the third time at the age of 5, the doctors said this was not medically possible, in spite of all the medication, she was getting worse and appeared fat even though she was a slim person and despite her not eating very well. I made it a point of duty to wake her up in the middle of the night between 12-3am to pray and this practice went on for about two months.

 

One day, whilst praying, the child asked me, “Mummy, if we believe God had answered our prayer, why are we still asking? I immediately stopped praying and started praising God. I learnt one lesson immediately, that I should stop making the same prayer request repeatedly.

 

If we truly believe that God has answered our prayers after the first time, instead of asking several times we should resort to praising God for having answered our prayer any time we remember.
