Learning To Pray was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 8th of September 2021 during the Midweek service at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, learning to pray, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
People who are deliberate and detailed get their goals realized. Your prayer life has to be deliberate and intentional. God wants us to speak to Him intelligently, not complaining and weeping sentiments.
You must be very careful so that your utterances do not contradict your prayers.
In prayer, remind God that IT IS WRITTEN.
Put me in remembrance: let us plead together: declare thou, that thou mayest be justified.Isaiah 43:26 (KJV)
Produce your cause, saith the LORD; bring forth your strong [reasons], saith the King of Jacob.Isaiah 41:21 (KJV)
Go to the place of prayer in the integrity of God’s word, not in your labour. God is bound by His word.
‘Plead your case that you may be justified’ – that’s exactly what the Bible says. Therefore hold God by His word.
Before you go to God in prayer with Scriptures, first sit down and eat those Scriptures. Meditate on it.
It is the word you eat that becomes your testimony.
Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts.Jeremiah 15:16 (KJV)
The more you meditate on God’s word, the lesser the problems.
Nothing gets done until you go on the platform of God’s word.
Where is the Scripture that makes you different from the ordinary people? You need Scriptures for every aspect of your life.
Your motive also matters in prayer. Don’t ask to consume it upon your lusts or to ‘pepper’ your enemies. When you ask, do so with a Kingdom mindset. You must learn to honour God when you come to the place of prayer. Come before God with due respect – avoid calls, gisting with others, etc. Even before our human superiors, we are disciplined (imagine talking with the president of the country, and then picking your phone to answer a call!), not to talk of God. You can’t be playing and praying at the same time. Prayer time is serious business; it is a consecrated time.
