Fervent Prayer-A Master Key to a World of Unlimited Breakthrough
by Ngozi Nwoke
1/20/2011 / Prayers
Prayer is the live wire of an unlimited breakthrough. The desire to enjoy all round success is uppermost in people's minds and some work round the clock to achieve this. But very few employ the leverage of fervent prayer. Unstoppable breakthrough is a possibility to all who are ready to pay the price.
Many Christians know they ought to pray more fervently. The problem is the application of this knowledge. There are more urgent, though not important, issues that tend to crowd our minds. For some people, it may be sleep that won't let them pray. But an understanding of the power of fervent prayer would change our attitude towards pray.
In a time like now, when the enemy knows that his time is running out, the devil will not fold his hands and allow saints to enjoy the blessings of God without putting up a fight. For every breakthrough there was at least one obstacle. To overcome such obstacles, the power of fervent prayer must be engaged.
The good news is that our Lord Jesus Christ has promised us a world of unlimited breakthrough if we will hold unto Him, (John 16:33). He is ready to take us through every step of the way. But we MUST ask Him for help in prayer with a heart full of expectation and faith.
An ordinary man is no match for the devil but with Christ on our side no obstacle can stop us. When the Israelites were to cross over to the Promised Land, the Red Sea was an obstacle. They CRIED unto God and God did the impossible for them. He parted the Red Sea and they walked on a dry ground!
Bread and butter prayer will not break through any obstacle. It takes a fervent (earnest, heartfelt and continued) prayer to break through any challenge you encounter on your way to success. James 5:16 (AMP) puts it this way, (... the earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].)
Elias was a man subject to like passion as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit. James 5:17-18 (KJV)
God has not changed. He is no respecter of persons. Anyone who calls upon Him in earnest, heartfelt and continued prayer will secure His attention and enjoy His divine intervention. There is no mountain too big for God to move. Invite God to move that mountain today.
A fervent prayer is a sign of our faith in God and His ability to break through any limitations of life. It positions us above the devil. And it gives us the access to the redemptive blessings purchased for us by Christ with His blood. This kind of prayer is not about how long we pray but how well we pray.
A world of unlimited breakthrough surely is attainable if we will learn to pray fervently to God. Whatever the obstacle or challenge before you now, fervent prayer is the master-key to breaking through it.
