TOPIC: Conditions for Getting Prayers Answered (2)
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR
2 Kings 7–9; John 1:1–28
Romans 6:23 – For the wages of sin is death; But the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The heart that is pure is the heart that can connect with God in prayer.
PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY
The dangerous sacrifice and ritual that was done to cage your glory shall backfire, in the Name of Jesus.
1 John 1:1-8
1 We want to tell you about the Word that gives life—the one who existed before the world began. This is the one we have heard and have seen with our own eyes. We saw what he did, and our hands touched him.
2 Yes, the one who is life was shown to us. We saw him, and so we can tell others about him. We now tell you about him. He is the eternal life that was with God the Father and was shown to us.
3 We are telling you about what we have seen and heard because we want you to have fellowship with us. The fellowship we share together is with God the Father and his Son Jesus Christ.
4 We write these things to you so that you can be full of joy with us.
God Forgives Our Sins
5 We heard the true teaching from God. Now we tell it to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness.
6 So if we say that we share in life with God, but we continue living in darkness, we are liars, who don’t follow the truth.
7 We should live in the light, where God is. If we live in the light, we have fellowship with each other, and the blood sacrifice of Jesus, God’s Son, washes away every sin and makes us clean.
8 If we say that we have no sin, we are fooling ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
MFM MOUNTAIN TOP LIFE DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE:
Today, we will continue the discourse on the conditions for getting prayers answered. If you have any unconfessed sin in your life, your prayer will never be answered.
Our Fire Scripture says, “If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us” (1 John 1:8). Here, John is emphasising sin, not just as a matter of God-defying actions but as a basic principle or trait in human nature. This could be as a reason of those who claim that sin does not exist as a principle or power in human nature, or those who say that their evil actions are not really sin. This erroneous and deceptive belief is still with us today.
Dearly Beloved, to have your prayers answered, you must own up to your sin and then go further by confessing it to God. Therefore, we deceive ourselves if we say that we have no sin. The Psalmist said, “If we regard iniquity in our hearts, the Lord will not hear us.” So our lives must be free from the thoughts of sin; we must not allow sin to dwell in our hearts and hinder answers to our prayers.
Those who take pleasure in things that go against the commands and standards of God’s Word should not expect Him to answer their prayers. God wants us to separate ourselves from sin and all forms of ungodly behaviour. Only then can we experience the benefits of His special favour and power in our lives.
Sin makes us to become persona-non-grata in the presence of God and that alone makes our prayer an abomination to God.
Have you been struggling to have answers to your prayers? You need to check yourself, live a life free of sin and God will visit you. Also, if there is sin in your life, confess it and turn away from it.
1. Father, give me the grace to live a sinless life, in the Name of Jesus.
2. Spirit of carnality, depart from my life, in the Name of Jesus.
3. Power to abide in Christ always, possess me, in the Name of Jesus.
4. O Lord, help me to be who You want me to be, in the Name of Jesus.
5. Arrows of the fowler targeted at me, backfire, in the Name of Jesus.
6. Grace that is sufficient for my journey on earth, possess my life, in the Name of Jesus.
7. Holy Spirit of God, overshadow my life, in the Name of Jesus.
