OPEN HEAVEN DAILY DEVOTIONAL

DATE: TUESDAY 24TH SEPTEMBER, 2019.

TOPIC: PRAY FOR YOUR LEADERS

MEMORISE:

Brethren, pray for us. – (1 Thessalonians 5:25)

READ: 2 THESSALONIANS 3:1-2 (KJV)

1. Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you;

2. And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men; for all men have not faith.

MESSAGE:

Good Morning Beloved,
Prayer is such a potent weapon that can do and undo things in people’s lives. It is so powerful that even the person praying cannot comprehend the extent of its reach.

Those who worked with God in times past knew the importance of prayer, and this is what inspired Paul’s request in today’s memory verse.
Even though he was a prayer warrior himself, he asked the brethren to continually pray for him and his team.
Our Lord Jesus Christ also demonstrated the importance of prayer by often spending all night in prayer alone, encouraging his disciples also to be prayerful (Luke 18:1-8).
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed for grace to accomplish the will of His father and also asked His disciples to join Him in prayer, rebuking them when they did not do so.
Matthew 26:38,40 says:

“Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me… And findeth them asleep, and saith unto peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?”

Paul also learnt from the Lord about the potency of corporate prayers, which is why he often craved prayer for himself and his team in his epistles.
He believed that they could do nothing without God, and that God can answer his children, based on His principle in Matthew 7:7.
On the surface, one would expect that pastors alone should pray for their flock, but in today’s Bible reading, we see an apostle giving the Church at Thessalonica a prayer request that the Lord would have His way in the ministry He committed to them.
He also asked the Church to pray for their deliverance from wicked men who did not believe in the gospel, trying their best to stop its spread.
The church is facing a lot of obstacles today because we are not praying enough like the early church did.
Peter would not have escaped King Herod’s sword if the early church was not fervent in prayers.
The Lord answered their prayer by sending an angel to rescue him. Having witnessed the great impact of prayer, Apostle James wrote in James 5:16b, saying,

“The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

Beloved, we ought to continually pray for our leaders. The temptations and battles facing Christian leaders are beyond what member of the church can imagine.
We must therefore faithfully and consistently pray for our spiritual and secular leaders so that they may not make mistakes in governance, and so that we can live a peaceful and holy life in this world (1 Timothy 2:1-2).
Spiritual leaders need our prayers to administer their responsibilities correctly, and in order not to disappoint God and betray the trust reposed in them by the Church.
Furthermore, they need our prayers to finish well and strong. Are you praying for them?

ACTION POINT:

Make it an obligation to pray for the spiritual leaders God has set over you on a daily basis.

AUTHOR: PASTOR E. A. ADEBOYE.

HYMNAL:

HYMN 3 – WHEN WE WALK WITH THE LORD

1. When we walk with the Lord,
In the light of His word,
What a glory He sheds on our way!
While we do His good will
He abides with us still,
And with all who will trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

2. Not a shadow can rise,
Not a cloud in the skies,
But His smile quickly drives it away;
Not a doubt nor a fear,
Not a sigh nor a tear,
Can abide while we trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

3. Not a burden we bear,
Not a sorrow we share
But our toil He doth richly repay;
Not a grief nor a loss,
Nor a frown nor a cross,
But is blest if we trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

4. But we never can prove
The delights of His love,
Until all on the altar we lay,
For the favour He shows
And the joy He bestows
Are for them who will trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.

5. Then in fellowship sweet
We will sit at His feet,
Or we’ll walk by His side in the way,
What He says we will do,
Where He sends we will go,
Never fear, only trust and obey.

CHORUS:
Trust and obey!
For there’s no other way
To be happy in Jesus,
But to trust and obey.
