Topic for Oct 6: The Power Of Prayer
By Dr. D.K Olukoya, General Overseer, MFM worldwide
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Chronicles 35-36
FIRE SCRIPTURE: James 5:13-18; Psalm 92:12 (KJV)
13 Is any among you afflicted? let him pray. Is any merry? let him sing psalms.
14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
17 Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months.
18 And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.
12 The righteous shall flourish like the palm tree: he shall grow like a cedar in Lebanon.
MEMORY VERSE: “And the inhabitant shall not say, I am sick: the people that dwell therein shall be forgiven their iniquity.” – Isaiah 33:24
The beauty of divine operation is that against every dark cloud, there is a silver lining.
PRAISE WORSHIP: Take a worship song as led by the Holy Spirit.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY:
ANY POWER THAT HAS CONNECTED YOU AND JOINED YOU TO WHAT DOES NOT BELONG TO YOUR DESTINY, I SEPARATE YOU FROM THAT POWER, IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
Today, we shall take a look at certain prayer secrets which shall lead you to the mountain of answered prayers.
I read an article in an international magazine in which it was mentioned that scientists have discovered that prayer is a form of medicine. A medical doctor had one particular patient in the ward with his two lungs already eaten up by cancer. On the basis of his medical knowledge, that patient was not supposed to live for more than two weeks. But, he noticed that everyday, his church members gathered around him to sing and pray. In his anger, he advised them to start practicing songs for his funeral, instead of wasting their time praying. He said that, surprisingly, the man did not die and the way he got out of that sickness beat his medical knowledge.

One year after, the man paid him a visit. To ascertain whether it was the prayers of the man’s church members that helped him out of his infirmity, he decided to carry out a research on prayer as medicine. He did the research in an hospital where about 300 patients were on admission. The names of some of them were listed without mentioning their ailments and some were passed to a church for prayers. They picked them at random. After six months, they checked the records and found out that more people recovered on the prayer list, he was convinced about the power of prayer.
Some people shed tears everyday because of their problems. They forget that, “many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him from them all.” The only person who can prevent you from being delivered from afflictions is not the devil, neither is it your pastor, nor your enemies, but it is you yourself. So, whatever circumstance you are facing, the way you respond to it will determine whether you will be delivered or not. If you decide to respond by exercising holy rebellion, you will get out of it. It may not come quite easily, but you will eventually get out. The circumstances or whatever you face can either make you a better person or a very bitter person. It can either make you or mar you. God’s promise for you is that you shall flourish like a palm tree and grow like a Cedar in Lebanon. Why don’t you claim that promise, by availing yourself of the secrets of the power of prayers? Explore the power of prayer today.
