A LIFE OF PRAYER

A LIFE OF PRAYER

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: SATURDAY, November 28 2020.

TOPIC: A LIFE OF PRAYER

DEVOTIONAL READING: NEHEMIAH 1

KEY VERSE: Let thine ear now be attentive, and thine eyes open, that thou mayest hear the prayer of thy servant, which I pray before thee now, day and night, for the children of Israel thy servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel, which we have sinned against thee: both I and my father’s house have sinned. (Nehemiah 1:6)

BIBLE CHARACTER: NEHEMIAH

In 445 B.C. Nehemiah led a group of Jewish exiles from Persia back to Jerusalem for the purpose of rebuilding the city’s broken-down walls. Despite strong opposition from without and extreme discouragement from within, the Jews accomplished this monumental task in only fifty-two days! What was Nehemiah’s secret? How was he able to get such a disorganized, disillusioned bunch of people to accomplish such a remarkable feat?

Some cite his leadership and organizational skills. Others laud his ability to motivate. But perhaps the real key is found in Nehemiah’s prayer life. The story of Nehemiah reveals a man who was intimate with GOD and highly dependent on his Creator.

When discouraged and depressed, he prayed (1:4-11). When under attack, he prayed (4:4-5,9). When weak and powerless, he prayed (6:9). When happy, he spent time thanking and praising GOD (chapter 12). Even in the midst of his busy schedule, he carried on a running conversation with GOD (2:4).

What about you? Is prayer a regular part of your daily life? Do you rely on GOD during hard times? Do your regularly thank and praise Him for His blessings? Spend some time today thinking about Nehemiah, and let his example motivate you to a life of power…through prayer.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The Secret To A Life Full Of Power Is A Life Full Of Prayer.

FURTHER READING: Nehemiah’s story is found in the book that bears his name.

PROPHETIC DECLARATIONS:

  1. My father, please, repair and restore my prayer altar in Jesus Name.
  2. Every enemy of my prayer life, be exposed and die in Jesus Name.
  3. Every power of prayerlessness in my life, I paralyze you by Fire in Jesus Name.
  4. Divine favor, locate me in every area of my life in Jesus Name. Amen!

Be Lifted!
