The phrase for the blog was inspired by my dad while listening to an anointed pastor on prayer. The time is now to receive your release. However, in order for us to receive our release we must pray consistently in order to receive our release.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV: 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray without ceasing, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
James 5:17-18 NIV: 17 Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years. 18 Again he prayed, and the heavens gave rain, and the earth produced its crops.
Luke 18:1-8 NIV: Then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. 2 He said: “In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought. 3 And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice against my adversary.’4 “For some time he refused. But finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, 5 yet because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so that she won’t eventually come and attack me!’”6 And the Lord said, “Listen to what the unjust judge says. 7 And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? 8 I tell you, he will see that they get justice, and quickly. However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
Acts 12:5: 5 So Peter was kept in jail, but the church was constantly praying to God for him.
The church in Acts 12 prayed until an angel led Peter out of prison. Peter came back and the people were amazed. God rewards diligence. Giving up, unconfessed sin, unbelief, wrong motives, unforgiveness, and not praying according to the will of God can hinder our prayers . James 4;7 NIV: When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures. Enter into God’s presence with praise and thanksgiving. God speaks through worship and praise. Get quiet after praise and worship. It leads to God leading you to the word. The word of God leads to prayer. Ask God what he wants to get over to you and then make your requests known to God. Matthew 6:33 NIV:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Read Mathew 6: 9-15, the Lord’s prayer; it is an outline of how to pray.
Read blog Stay Wit It Til You Git It. Do not be weary in well doing, because in due season you will reap if you do not faint. (Galatians 6:9)
Do you want your release? Do not let prayer cease!
Prayer: Thank you Lord for always being a very present help. I repent for not being consistent in praying. I rejoice always no matter what I go through. I pray without ceasing; in every situation, I give thanks to God for seeing me through everysituation. I stay with it until I am free. I thank you Jesus for being The Great Shepherd; all that I need. I thank you for my release. In Jesus name! Amen!
