Go on your kneels.
Go on your kneels and speak
Close your eyes and cry out.
Trust me, prayer works.
The term "go on your kneels" simply means "to pray."
Prayer is one of the hardest things to actually comply to. In the midst of tribulations, we worry too much instead of going on our kneels.
What prayer entails.
Prayer is a way of communicating with God, we have different categories of prayers.
We have the one of supplication
We have the one of thanksgiving
We have the one of request
We have the one of intercession
We have the one of confession...
All these prayers are very much important to us in our day to day living.
Most people find it difficult to run; thanking God when he does something really special to us, we only go; running to him when we're in need of something.
That "most people" Is me.
It has been tested and trusted, that prayer actually works. There are stages in one's life where things would be so tough, you'll keep wondering where it all went wrong, and instead of praying, we end up worrying.
Stormed by Ella Mike-Bamiloye.
This lady was married to a pastor, she was actually doing all good and fine in her marriage, but things fell apart. The once rosy marriage, became a marriage filled with complains and pains.
A lady started seducing her husband, and instead of her to pray about it; for God to reconnect her husband back to her, she decided to fight physically, crying and lamenting over her husband's sudden change of character, she was nudged so many times to go on her kneels and table out her request to God in the place of prayer, but she ignored and kept battling herself and troubling her heart, believing that it would all change someday.
It actually didn't, as she went deeper and more deeper into the pit of sin, just because she kept seeking for ways to get her hubby connected back to her.
It ended well though, one thing led to another and the married lady was able to free her hubby from the bondage he was in.
From the story above, she wouldn't have had to go through alot, if she had gone on her kneels sooner.
Don't quote me wrong, I'm not saying we should pray and keeping praying, without working hard to be better people... God blesses the works of our hands, but we still need to pray to wear the garments of divine successes, breakthroughs, turnarounds...
Do you remember this song?, I remember singing and humming to it when I was quite young...
Prayer is the key,
Prayer is the key,
Prayer is the master key,
Jesus started with prayers and ended with prayers,
Prayer is the master key.
1st Thessalonians 5:17 : Pray without ceasing.
It doesn't have to be loud, it doesn't have to be when you are alone...
You could pray while walking on the road.
You could pray in a bus.
You could pray in the classroom.
You could pray in the market.
You could pray in the bathroom.
You can literally pray anywhere...
But just... Cultivate the habit of prayer.
Believe me, it works.
God is too faithful to leave his own, he'll never cease to grant you your request, only if it's not what would take you away from him.
As we all know, he's a jealous God, and that's the more reason why; when he finally blesses us, we should still learn to acknowledge him.
Most of us run to God only when the going gets tough and rough. But when things are Rosy, we forget our source.
A person who prays and plans is always a step ahead of the person who plans, but doesn't pray.
Prayer goes ahead of you to fulfill your requests.
It's better to cry to God than to cry to mere men. God would compel men to bless you, without you even asking them.
Have you been in a situation whereby someone would just walk up to you and say:
I felt the need to give you this, The Holyspirit told me to sow this seed.
Or you'll be stranded and you'll suddenly pray to God to provide a person that would foot your transport bill. You enter commercial bus and then boom!, You see someone you've not met for a long time, you both exchange pleasantries and the person is like: don't worry, I've already paid your fare to the bus-conductor.
The devil knows the essence of prayers, that's why it sometimes seem so hard for us to pray...
Prayer truly works, so go on your kneels and pray.
Prayer works so well with hard work. because the reward will be great. and its not just when we need help that we have to pray. Praying always will make it easier to pray when having problems rather than breaking down or crying.
