TOPIC: PRAYERS THAT OPEN DOORS
(SEEDS OF DESTINY DAILY DEVOTIONAL BY DR. PASTOR PAUL ENENCHE)
SCRIPTURE: Withal praying also for us, that God would open unto us a door of utterance, to speak the mystery of Christ, for which I am also in bonds: Colossians 4:3
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Prayer has the capacity to open doors supernaturally.
It has been confirmed that prayer has the capacity to open doors supernaturally (James 5:17, 18). However, there are kinds of prayer that open doors and we are looking at those kinds of prayer today.
1. Intercessory prayers
This is the prayer that overlooks personal challenges to focus on the challenges of others (Job 42:10).
Sometime ago, someone who had a heart condition (Arrhythmia) for 21 years met another person who had a similar condition and decided to pray for him. Both of them went down under the power of the Holy Ghost after the prayer and stood up healed. So, intercessory prayers work.
2. Kingdom vow-based prayers
This is where the prayer includes a vow that targets the needs of the Kingdom. Such prayer opened Hannah’s womb (1 Samuel 1:11-19). God needed a priest and Hannah needed a son so she asked God for a son and vowed to give him back to God as His priest.
3. Consecrational prayers
These are prayers of submission and surrender to God for the fulfilment of His purpose in one’s life (Luke 3:21).
4. Corporate prayers
This is the prayer of agreement with the Church. It opened the prison gates for Peter (Acts 12:5-12).
5. Praiseful prayers
These are prayers that are heavily laced with praise. It broke open the prison doors for Paul and Silas (Acts 16:25-26).
Beloved, engage these prayers with all your heart and watch all closed doors around your life open.
Remember this: Prayer has the capacity to open doors supernaturally.
1. Endeavour to engage in the kinds of prayer outlined in our study today.
2. Take out time to intercede for revival in the Church and for the salvation of lost souls.
3. Make demands on the opening of every closed door around your life.
