PRAYERS THAT PREVAIL 1

Lent is a period Christians remember the forty days fast Jesus did before starting His earthly ministry. Today is the Sunday before Lent, also known as Quinquagesima. By God’s grace, we shall be looking at prayers that prevail in our next meditations.

 

Prayer is defined as talking to God. Some see prayers as a conversation between God and man. To others, it is what you use as your last result when all other efforts have failed. Some just pray because they learnt to do so from home or school.

 

There is no one that does not have problems that he or she cannot solve. There are so many things in and around us that no mortal man can take care off. All efforts made to handle such problems or challenges have failed. You can take out time and list them. Such situations can adequately be catered for through prayers. At times, hardtimes pour on some people like a flood, giving them no breathing space. How can such situations be best handled by a mortal man? Satan does not show mercy. The plans of the devil, if not restricted, can ruin anyone within a short while. At very hard times, you need someone who is greater than you and the devil to set you free. Such a Person is best accessed through prayers.

INTEGRITY: A MUST FOR EVERY CHRISTIAN

Integrity has become a standard that most people find difficult to achieve. The failures in our system have adversely affected the level of integrity of many. Today, you find people take the easiest way out; provided they get what they want. To them, it does not matter whether it is right or wrong. Their goal is to get result, no matter how. This is why thieves, swindlers, those involved with fraud and the wicked in our society are celebrated because of what they have. People should actually be celebrated for what they are.

Your level of integrity shows how related you are to God. Let us read Numbers 23: 19-20. “God is not a man, that he should lie, nor a son of man, that he should change his mind. Does he speak and then not act? Does he promise and not fulfill?  I have received a command to bless; he has blessed, and I cannot change it.” Balaam was talking about God’s integrity. If you are God’s son or daughter, you should also be a man/woman of integrity.
