TOPIC: PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS (“PUSH!”)

READ: Genesis 32:22-31
MEMORISE:Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart. Luke 18:1

EXPOSITION
Prayer champions are known well for their doggedness, determination, consistency and persistence. Jacob, Isaac’s Son, is a classic reference. Jacob wrestled with an angel of God for most of the night preceding his fateful challenging/threatening encounter with his estranged older brother, Esau! Had Jacob not persevered in the vigil, the supposed blessings he had obtained in a supplanting way would have continued to hunt him for life! However, he remained resolute that night, to end his endless servitude, unsettled and struggling life. He got what he needed by praying until the spectacular happened.
Dear reader, you have not prayed until the fruits of your prayer start to manifest. If God is yet to answer, that is not an indication that you should stop. Instead, fire on in your prayers, personally and corporately. Prayer has no place! The place of prayer is the place you decide to meet with God, and that can be anywhere. So, all places are places of prayer; all times are times of prayer (I Thess. 5:17).
It is high time this generation of believers went back to adopt the prayer system and strategy of our patriarchs in faith. We read and heard of how men of old, like Spurgeon, John Knox, Apostle Ayo Babalola, etc. would painstakingly and sacrificially kneel for long hours in prayers. What about their togetherness in prayer meetings? They would pray, instantaneous signs would manifest to tell them their prayers had been answered.
It may be impracticable to kneel on cracked nuts of palm fruit or fast for many days, some of our patriarchs did. Yet, the bottom line is the seriousness, resoluteness, determination, decisiveness and above all, sincerity in prayers. May you catch the fire of the Holy Spirit to always pray until God’s mind happens, in Jesus’ It may be impracticable to kneel on cracked nuts of palm fruit or fast for many days, some of our patriarchs did. Yet, the bottom line is the seriousness, resoluteness, determination, decisiveness and above all, sincerity in prayers. May you catch the fire of the Holy Spirit to always pray until God’s mind happens, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
