PRAYER THAT GETS RESULTS
Ephesians 6:18 (AMPC)
Pray at all times (on every occasion) (in every season) in the Spirit with all manner of prayer and entreaty. Keep alert with strong purpose and perseverance interceding on behalf of the saints. Pray instead of worry. †
Have a clear-cut goal, a definite request
You must have a vivid mental picture
You must have a burning desire (to the boiling point)
You must pray for assurance (if you do not have it)
You must speak the Word
PRAYER TO BREAK RELIGION AND SPIRITUAL SLACKNESS
Father God, you are the rewarder of those who diligently seek You.
Hebrews 11:6 (AMP)
But without faith it is impossible to [walk with God and] please Him, for whoever comes [near] to God must [necessarily] believe that God exists and that He rewards those who [earnestly and diligently] seek Him. †
I repent for any lack of diligence in my spiritual walk or prayer life. I repent for all apathy and lethargy. In the name of Jesus, I shut every demonic door that has been opened to hinder my prayer life. I bind the cares of this world and pride of life. I break every dark covenant that has been set against the call of God upon my life. Father, liberate me from being stuck or religious without any power operating. Deliver me as I renounce all religious spirits that cause me to stop growing, be powerless and become calloused to Your Spirit’s movement in my life.
I renounce any soul ties that would distract my mind from my prayer assignment. I bind all financial, emotional, physical, associations, and distractions against my private time with God. Lord, show me any people, places or things that have been strategically put in my path to blind my eyes, close my ears and shut my mouth in the spirit. I plead the blood of Jesus over my eyes, ears and mouth. They will be used by God in this hour.
Lord, thank you for helping me to pray prayers that avail much. I realize my prayers can break drought, and bring change to my family, city and nation. I was created to have a personal relationship with You and to stand in the gap. The Bible says, “The people who know their God shall be strong and do great exploits.” May I be strong in prayer, holy in body, pure in heart, and powerful in words. I repent for all spiritual laziness. From this moment on, I yield and submit my prayer life to the Holy Spirit. Amen.
