This Must Be Present in Every Marriage. A lot of things must be implemented for a marriage to succeed. 

Conscious and deliberate inputs must be in place so the marriage can bring bliss and not blisters.

Here is one of them

Prayers. This Must Be Present in Every Marriage.

A family that prays together stays together.

A husband and wife that pray together will overcome the flesh easily.

Prayer protects, shields, and connects you to your inheritance in God.

As husband and wife, pray for one another rather than tear one another apart.

Intercede for each other. 

What the devil wants is a tearing apart, do not cooperate with him. 

Wake up in the middle of the night and pray together.

The power of agreement is better harnessed as a couple.

In the first few years of our marriage, my wife and I would wake up by 12.00 am and pray in the Spirit.

I am persuaded that those prayers advanced our lives and ministries. 

There is a purpose for coming together in marriage.

It is not just for making love and then dying at the age of ninety. 

There is a purpose in the heart of God.

That purpose is not to be decided, it is to be discovered.

When you discover that purpose, you just stepped into your wealthy place.

You can only discover in the place of prayers. 

The devil will do all he knows to make sure you don’t pray.

You will notice that each time you decide to pray, something else will interrupt it. Those are not natural. The devil doesn’t want you to pray at all. Prayer-less couples will leave so many cracks and loopholes open for the devil to explore.

The devil will not access your marriage. Your marriage will be preserved in Jesus’ name!

Do not let anything interfere with your prayer times. May God help you and your spouse in Jesus’ name

Be blessed!

Being Specific in Prayers

Being Specific in Prayers

Reading Time: < 1 minute

Do you know you can be specific in the place of prayers? Yes, you can. Let’s take a look at the story of Ade. Ade mentioned his prayers to his mum as they drove home from school.

‘God should help me in my coming school examinations,’ Ade said. 

‘That’s an empty prayer request,’ she said. ‘Be specific about what grades you want in each subject’

Ade wondered why he should. God said His plans for us are good. God should know what grades to give him.

‘It is good to be specific in your prayer requests to God,’ she said further.

Mum is right. Imagine if the blind man in yesterday’s story (Luke 18:40-41) asked for blessings?

The question is, what exact blessing did he need right then? What was the most important thing he needed? To see. And how did Jesus reply? Jesus said, “Jesus said to him, Then see! You are healed because you believed.”

Being specific aids your expectations regarding your wants. You have a view of the expected results in your mind and expect nothing less.

So, stop saying vague prayers and tell God exactly what you want. The blind man got what he wanted.

At once the man was able to see,… – Luke 18:43 (ICB)

May God grant your prayer requests. Amen.

Prayer:
Lord Jesus, teach me how to be specific in my prayers, I pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Action point:
Ensure your prayers are specific. If you don’t know how to say them, pray in the Holy Ghost.

Declaration:
I am specific with my requests. I am intentional and deliberate.

The God That Answers Prayers

The God That Answers Prayers

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Let’s look at this short story about Bimpe, as we seek to understand the God that answers prayers. Bimpe ensured that everyone around her felt her sadness and displeasure. She sighed sadly, squeezed her face, hissed many times, kept a low profile and didn’t give much attention when spoken to.

God had not answered her prayers. This was like the hundredth time she had asked for Sola, her friend, who was failing miserably at school. Her last test score was poor and the rest of the class made fun of her when the teacher announced the scores.

Wasn’t God supposed to answer prayers? Wasn’t He the All-Powerful and Great God? The All-Knowing, All-Seeing and All-Doing God? She couldn’t help but wonder why God didn’t want Sola to do well at school.

‘You have been sighing and frowning since you came back from school and all morning too,’ her mother said to her later that day. ‘What’s going on with you? Care to share?’

‘It’s God,’ Bimpe replied.

‘What about God?’

‘He didn’t answer my prayer.’

‘What have you been praying for?’

‘I have been asking Him to help Sola pass her exams and tests at school.’

‘And how do you know so?’ her mother asked again.

‘She failed the test again yesterday. Doesn’t God answer prayers anymore?’

‘Of course, He still answers prayers and will always do so.’

Her mother wondered why she would ask such a question.

Then why hasn’t He answered my prayers? Why is Sola still failing her tests?’

‘Is she studying as she should? Does she listen in class and understand her lessons?’

‘She does, mum. She sits beside me in class.’

‘Have you tried asking her what the problem is and maybe help her study after school?’

Bimpe paused and thought about this. She had never asked Sola that. ‘No, mommy. I have never asked her what the problem was.’

‘There goes your answered prayer.’

Have you ever felt like Bimpe?
Apart from praying for someone, you can always ask them what the problem is and see if you can help. That can be your answered prayers sometimes.

Have a blessed day, God bless you. Amen.

Prayer:
Lord, thank You for the many ways you answer my prayers.

Action plan:
Be more detailed when talking to God.

Declaration:
I receive answers to all my prayers.

One Way To Fast Track Your Marital Journey

One Way To Fast Track Your Marital Journey

Reading Time: 2 minutes

A couple of years back, a certain lady called me. Let’s call her Sister Sube.

She started by telling me how bitter she is against God, that God has refused to answer all her prayers. She said despite constant vigils, fasting, and prayers, God has turned a deaf ear to her. She told me how she was on the brink of giving up.

Sister Sube went further to tell me that she has been crying for days and that she is thinking of forgetting God and moving on. She told me that no serious man has approached her in the last few months.

Then she dropped the bomb!

She said, “Even this man that I am living in his house has refused to propose!”

“Living in his house?” I asked.

“Yes now, I thought if I move into his house, it will make things fast, but right now, he has only been sleeping with me.”

Then she concluded, “Pastor, I am tired.” I pray a lot, no answer. I am even just coming from a vigil right now.”

As ridiculous as this may sound, I am telling you a true story. And I am also sure there are many people who might have found themselves in this kind of predicament.

The reality is that you cannot violate a part of the scripture and then expect His promises to work for you.

Yes, some things happen by acts of mercy, but you get to a certain point, God commands everyone to repent.

That lady above is trying to mock God. Sadly, God cannot be mocked. Such a person ends up deceiving himself or herself.

There is no point attending vigils and going to the mountain every Friday and then continuing in sin. It is just a waste of time.

Let me give you some tips that can help.

For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost. – Romans 14:17 (KJV) 

You cannot gallivant your way to heaven. It requires a certain level of seriousness and discipline with your spiritual life. It requires some inconvenience.

There is always a price to pay. It is not in meat and drink alone. It is not in tripping her, taking her to cinemas alone, and buying her gifts.

Meat and drinks, fun, and frolicking around are never the passwords into God’s kingdom.

It is in righteousness which is right living. You cannot cheat your way into the Kingdom. You are either for Him or against Him.

May God grant you more understanding!

CONFESSION FOR THE DAY
I refuse to mock God in any way

Lord, help me to live with your fear in mind
