*TOPIC: PRAYER, FASTING AND REVIVAL*

SCRIPTURE: And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. Acts 4:31

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Prayer must be continual for the sustenance of the move of God.

It has been confirmed that prayer with fasting is critical for the sustenance of revival. Prayer must be continual for the sustenance of the move of God. Prayer must be on the increase to sustain the fire of revival, the salvation of souls, healings, miracles, signs and wonders.

According to our anchor Scripture, the place where the disciples prayed was shaken and then the Power of God fell. This happened at the frequency of their prayers (Acts 4:31).

Also, Acts 2:42 says:
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
So, prayer and fasting is critical for the sustenance and continuity of every move of God.

*Now, what kind of prayer ushers us to a continual move of God?*

a. Personal and private prayer and fasting.
This is a situation where you embark on the exercise of prayer and fasting on your own. It is called a consecrational fast.
This is what Peter did in Acts 10:9-10. Peter embarked on a personal and private prayer and then doors opened for him.

b. Corporate praying and fasting.
This is a situation where the whole church is involved in prayer and fasting. It is the body of Christ joining forces together in prayer.

When Peter was arrested by Herod, the Church joined forces together in prayer and Peter was released (Acts 12:5).
Beloved, it is good to pray on your own but it is important to pray with the saints. These two must be combined to produce very dangerous effects against the powers of hell.

REMEMBER THIS: Prayer must be continual for the sustenance of the move of God.

ASSIGNMENTS:

1. Go through today’s message once again.

2. Make up your mind to embark on both personal and corporate prayers for the sustenance of the move of God in your life.

PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to pray without ceasing. Help me never to give up or get weary in praying and fasting, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE:
Your spirituality is not for the purpose of luxury; your spirituality determines your immunity. Your spirituality affects your security. Your spirituality determines your indomitability and unfightability. Culled from “15 kingdom Strategies for Survival” by Dr Paul Enenche.

DAILY BIBLE READING: Psalm 118-120.

AMAZING FACT: Every second, your body produces 25 million new cells. That means in 15 seconds, you will have produced more cells than there are people in the United States.

PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: As you receive a fresh discipline of prayer, you will continue to experience ceaseless victories in Jesus’ Name

THEME: LOVE AND SUBMISSION IN MARRIAGE I.

MEMORISE: So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself. Ephesians 5:28

READ: Ephesians 5:21 -33
21 Submitting yourselves one to another in the fear of God.

22 Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord.

23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.

24 Therefore as the church is subject unto Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in every thing.

25 Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it;

26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it with the washing of water by the word,

27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it should be holy and without blemish.

28 So ought men to love their wives as their own bodies. He that loveth his wife loveth himself.

29 For no man ever yet hated his own flesh; but nourisheth and cherisheth it, even as the Lord the church:

30 For we are members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones.

31 For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother, and shall be joined unto his wife, and they two shall be one flesh.

32 This is a great mystery: but I speak concerning Christ and the church.

33 Nevertheless let every one of you in particular so love his wife even as himself; and the wife see that she reverence her husband.

MESSAGE
Many men complain that their wives are not submissive to them. I have been married for over fifty-four years now, and I have also been privileged to be used by God to help resolve many marital issues from experience and the word of God.

In a Christian marriage, wives are required to be submissive to their husbands as unto the Lord (Ephesians 5:22). However, over the years I have observed a number of reasons why some wives find it difficult to submit to their husbands. The first is if a wife does not feel loved, I want you to take note that I did not say, “If she is not loved”, but rather said, “If she does not feel loved”. You cannot love somebody the way you want; you have to love them the way they want, for them to feel loved. If a wife does not feel loved, she would most likely struggle with reciprocating with submission as the Bible says.

Understand you wife and get to know what makes her feel loved. Some men think that merely buying gifts would show love, whereas their wives just want to spend time with them. Not all the time a man spends with his wife should be for prayers; some of the time should be just to play. Many people see me as a very serious person, but behind closed doors with my wife, I play a lot. I enjoy spending time with my wife so much. One day, after just arriving in America, I went to our room, only to discover that my wife went to another part of the house. When she still hadn’t returned to our room after a while, I went looking for her. One of the people in the house asked, “Daddy, why are you looking for Mummy so much, weren’t you together all through the flight? Didn’t she just leave you a few minutes ago?” I told him jokingly to mind his business.

During the day, put a call through to her every now and then just to let her know that it doesn’t matter how far from home I am or how busy I am wherever I have gone, I must speak to my wife every single day. I tell her constantly that I love her and so it is easy for her to submit.

Women would naturally find it difficult to submit to someone who does not love them. Please think of what you can do to show your wife that you love her and show it consistently.

ACTION POINT
I want you to have a meeting with your spouse this morning , ask him or her if he or she feels loved, then ask for what you can start doing to demonstrate your love.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Psalm 43-45

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A ADEBOYE

HYMN 7: I LOVE THE FAMILY OF GOD
I’m so glad I’m a part of the Family of God,
I’ve been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
For I’m part of the family,
The Family of God.

You will notice we say “brother and sister” ’round here,
It’s because we’re a family and these are so near;
When one has a heartache, we all share the tears,
And rejoice in each victory in this family so dear.

I’m so glad I’m a part of the Family of God,
I’ve been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
For I’m part of the family,
The Family of God.

From the door of an orphanage to the house of the King,
No longer an outcast, a new song I sing;
From rags unto riches, from the weak to the strong,
I’m not worthy to be here, but praise God I belong!

I’m so glad I’m a part of the Family of God,
I’ve been washed in the fountain, cleansed by His Blood!
Joint heirs with Jesus as we travel this sod,
For I’m part of the family,
The Family of God
