TOPIC: PRAYER THAT OPENS DOORS
SCRIPTURE: 1 Sam 1:12-20
OUTLINE: MFM DAILY DEVOTIONAL 8TH FEBRUARY 2021 TODAY MESSAGE
Prayer is the act of asking God for speciﬁc things. It is a two-way action of asking and receiving. In 2 Kings 4, we read the story of a wife of one of the sons of the prophet whose husband was late. She came to Elisha to seek help concerning the creditor that wanted to take her two sons as bondmen because they couldn’t pay the debt her husband owed before his death. Elisha asked her what she had in her house and she said a pot of oil.
He prayed for her and told her to borrow vessels, not a few but plenty from neighbours. All the vessels she got were ﬁlled to the brim until there was no more vessel. Again in the book of 1 Samuel, we read about a woman called Hannah who was loved so dearly by her husband but she had no child. Hannah was childless and her husband’s other wife Peninnah made mockery of her.
She remembered the name of the Lord and called upon Him and her prayer was answered by God. Hannah’s prayer was well targeted. It went straight to the heart of God and there was a breakthrough. Are you looking for the fruit of the womb? Are you in any dire situation and need divine intervention? Have you prayed and it seems that there is no way? I want you to know that the God of Elisha is still at work, He will answer you speedily, in the name of Jesus.
The woman that inherited debt from her late husband became a millionaire. She met the prophet of God and there was open heaven. There are prayers and there are prayers. When you look for God where you can ﬁnd Him, the testimony of open door will appear. Your testimony too shall appear, in Jesus’ name. You shall not pray amiss, in Jesus’ name. At this juncture, you may ask, “What should I do for my prayers to open doors?”
Here are some important keys:
First, you have to make Jesus your priority. Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. Surrender your life to Him. Second, become a word addict and a prayer warrior. Prayer is the master key. Jesus said men ought always to pray and not to faint. He started with prayer and ended with prayer. Lastly, faithful payment of tithe and offering will open the windows of heaven to you.
As you do these, all nations shall call you blessed, in Jesus’ name.
Memory Verse: 1 Samuel 1:15-16: “And Hannah answered and said,No,my lord, I am a woman of a sorrowful spirit: I have drunk neither wine norstrong drink, but have poured out my soul beforethe LORD. Count not thine handmaid for a daughter of Belial:for out of the abundance of my complaint and grief have I spoken hitherto”
Motivational Quote: The wealth of the unbelievers shall be added unto you.
Prophetic Word: You shall not labour for another to eat. You shall possess your possessions, in the name of Jesus.
HYMN: Lord, teach us how to pray aright
1. Lord, teach us how to pray aright,
With reverence and with fear;
Though dust and ashes in Thy sight,
We may, we must, draw near.
2. We perish if we cease from prayer;
O grant us power to pray!
And when to meet Thee we prepare,
Lord, meet us by the way.
3. God of all grace, we come to Thee,
With broken, contrite heart;
Give what Thine eye delights to see,
Truth in the inward part;
4. Faith in the only sacrifice
That can for sin atone;
To cast our hopes, to fix our eyes,
On Christ, on Christ alone;
5. Patience to watch and wait and weep,
Though mercy long delay;
Courage our fainting souls to keep,
And trust Thee though Thou slay. 6. Give these, and then Thy will be done; Thus strengthened with all might, We through Thy Spirit and Thy Son shall pray, and pray aright.
1. Good doors closed against me, open by fire, in the name of Jesus.
2. Doors of opportunities, open, in the name of Jesus.
3. Powers hindering my open doors, die, in the name of Jesus.
4. Heavens over my head, hear the word of the living God, open by fire, in the name of Jesus.
5. Power of my father’s house saying no to my open door, be paralyzed and die, in the name of Jesus.
6. Anything in my life hindering my open door, come out and die, in the name of Jesus.
7. Powers in my dream, saying no to my doors of opportunities, die by fire, in the name of Jesus.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Exo. 28-29
