TOPIC: PRAISE MUST HAVE CONTENT

Key Verse: By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name – Hebrews 13:15

MESSAGE: RHAPSODY OF REALITIES 16TH JANUARY 2021 SATURDAY TODAY

When we talk about praise in the New Testament, there’re many who don’t understand what it is. Praise is our profuse expression of appreciation of the goodness, blessings, kindness and righteousness of God. It’s the appreciation or confession of His character. When you say, “Lord, you’re gracious and kind; you’ve blessed me; you’re righteous, etc.,” you’re defining and appreciating His character; that’s praise.

When you worship the Lord in that light, it shows who He is in your life; it separates Him from everyone else and from everything else. When you thank Him for His goodness, provisions, blessings and all the wonderful things He’s given you, and done for you, you’re attributing those beautiful works to Him. The necessary result is that He’ll do more in your life.

Luke 11:2 “…When you pray, say…” (NKJV). He didn’t say, “…think.” Worship must have content. In the Old Testament, when the prophets or priests prayed, the contents of their prayers were written for us, showing that they vocalised it. Likewise, when Jesus prayed, He spoke out, such that others heard Him. He didn’t merely think in His mind.

It’s the same with worship; we worship God through the Spirit, and by the Word (in spirit and in truth)! We lift our hands to Him, making confessions to His Name: “By him therefore let us offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually, that is, the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name” Hebrews 13:15. We eulogise and bless Him for His greatness, kindness, love, mercies and grace. Hallelujah!

PRAYER: Blessed Jesus, you’re greater than all; you rule the heavens and the earth; everything from galaxies to governments; no name or power is outside the reign and dominion of your majesty! How great thou art, O Lord! You alone are God, worthy of all honour, majesty and praise, now and forever. Amen.

Rhapsody Of Realities Guide 4th March 2021 – Keep “Pushing” In Prayer

You are reading Today’s Rhapsody Of Realities for Thursday 4th March 2021; written by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome. May you be blessed as you read on.

TOPIC: KEEP “PUSHING” IN PRAYER

Key Verse: “Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” – James 5:16

TODAY OUTLINE: RHAPSODY OF REALITIES GUIDE 4TH MARCH 2021

When the Bible says there was no rain in the land of Israel according to the word of Elijah, it wasn’t that Elijah suddenly woke up and said, “There’ll be no rain in Israel for the next three and half years.” No, the Bible says he prayed earnestly. 1 Kings 18:42 shows how he prayed; it says Elijah “bowed deeply in prayer, his face between his knees” (MSG).

The Amplified Classic version of our theme verse aptly describes this kind of prayer: “…The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].” It says the prayer is earnest, and there’s a persistence about it. In other words, it’s a sustained kind of prayer that’s marked by a deep feeling of conviction.

This isn’t the kind of prayer you pray at the dining table or when you’re hurrying off to work. There’re certain times and situations where you don’t just speak the word and go away; you persist in prayer. You keep pushing. You may be saying the same thing, but you’re pushing. Jesus did that too in the Garden of Gethsemane. He said the same things in prayer, and He prayed that way for an hour.

It wasn’t a two-minute prayer. He persisted, because he understood the stakes of the moment. We’re in a similar moment today. The stakes are high. You’ve got to take your personal prayer life more seriously. Always stir yourself and respond to the call and urgency of prayer from your spirit, declaring the Word and crushing the forces of darkness, in the spirit.

It may look like nothing is changing, but you keep pushing. You might ask, “But when do I stop?” You stop when you “know that you know” in your spirit that it’s done! Glory to God! You’ll surely get the note of victory.

PRAYER: Blessed Father, thank you for the privilege and opportunity of prayer by which I exercise my authority in Christ, to activate and walk in the consciousness of the divine presence, and enforce your will in the earth. I’m an effective intercessor through the Word of faith and earnest, heartfelt, continued prayer. I declare that the nations and leaders of the world are under the divine influence of your mighty power, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
