THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ALTAR OF PRAYER & FASTING.
SUNDAY ENCOUNTER SERVICE
FROM GREAT GRACE TABERNACLE,
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE ALTAR OF PRAYER & FASTING.
⭕️Prayer is taking back the word of God to God in a conversation which oils and cements our relationship.
⭕️Prayer is the breath of a healthy believer, while fasting is a prayer booster.
⭕️When a believer is healthy, it is reflected in his prayer life.
⭕️Before Satan can attack you, he will first attack your prayer life.
⭕️Prayer is not the seed for prosperity but the absence of prayer will make prosperity impossible.
⭕️That which empowers you for prosperity requires prayer for it to be in place.
⭕️It is impossible to prosper the Kingdom way without empowerment through prayer to handle certain things.
⭕️A church that is in revival begins to prosper.
⭕️A child of God that is in command begins to do all those things that Satan blocks people from doing.
⭕️Prayer is not a natural thing – you will not pray because you feel like praying.
⭕️You need power for flight and you need power to maintain flight.
⭕️We must pray in faith in order for the rewards to show.
⭕️It is meaningless to pray when your faith is not in place.
⭕️The word of God will show you what the will of God is.
⭕️Faith is the ability of God in a man that superimposes the will of God over things that are seen.
1 John 5:4
⭕️In every activity we do for God, it is the faith in it that makes it to deliver.
⭕️It is the faith in prayer that empowers your prayer.
⭕️The Faith you see expressed in a man is the response of his human spirit to what God has said.
⭕️If you can see it with your physical eye, you don’t need faith.
⭕️Faith is for what’s unseen to the human eye.
⭕️How far you can see, determines how much you can have.
1 Samuel 1:10, 18, Luke 1:45
⭕️If you can see the end from the beginning, you won’t be worried by what’s happening in the middle.
⭕️Faith is meant to make you see the end.
Habakkuk 2:2, Mark 5:28
OBJECTIVES OF THE PRAYER AND FASTING ALTAR
1) SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT [Luke 3:21-22, 4:14, 9:28-31]
⭕️The prayer altar is our power station; that is where we get empowerment to subdue spiritual forces.
⭕️Prayer and fasting opens the heavens.
⭕️There are many people who live under closed Heavens because they are prayerless.
⭕️You will never have heaven’s affirmation if you are prayerless.
⭕️Those muscles we build in the gym are nothing during the battles of life.
⭕️For people to come and buy your products you need attraction.
⭕️Evil spirits are behind the bad lifestyles you see in people.
⭕️If you lack empowerment, you will be the headquarters for evil spirits.
⭕️Don’t relate with everyone at the same level.
⭕️Don’t confront devils in your human state, confront them as a spirit being who has been empowered and they will be no match.
⭕️Prayer helps you contact spirits of just men made perfect, to help you accomplish what they did.
⭕️TAKE A SELFIE OF WHATEVER CLOTHES YOU’LL BE WEARING DURING THE ANOINTING SERVICE THIS AFTERNOON; THOSE CLOTHES WILL BECOME A POINT OF CONTACT.
⭕️WHEN YOU FACE BATTLES, GO TO THOSE CLOTHES AND REMEMBER WHAT HAS HAPPENED THIS DAY
⭕️MARK WHATEVER WILL COME IN CONTACT WITH THE ANOINTED MATERIALS.
WHAT DOES SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT DO?
a) OVERPOWERS ALL OPPOSING FORCES [MATTHEW 17:21, 1 Corinthians 16:9
⭕️There are certain oppositions that can only leave by prayer and fasting.
b) GENERATES AND BUILDS SPIRITUAL STRENGTH AGAINST THE DAY OF BATTLE [Isaiah 40:28-31
c) RENEWS OUR STRENGTH [Proverbs 24:10]
⭕️When battles come, it is strength that matters.
2) EMPOWERMENT FOR EFFECTIVE WITNESSING [Psalm 2:8, Acts 1:8, Luke 11:21-22, John 15:16]
⭕️You may desire to become an effective witness but without empowerment you may never become it.
⭕️Prayer is the catalyst for soul winning.
⭕️Prayer gives you power to talk to someone without fear and gives you power to confront the devils that are stopping them from getting saved.
⭕️Prayer gives you power to showcase the testimony of Jesus Christ through your life.
⭕️There is a power holding people in sin and you need the power of the Holy Ghost to break that hold of sin.
3) BRINGS US INTO SUPERNATURAL BREAKTHROUGHS [Genesis 32:24-28, Luke 5:5-8]
4) TO PROVOKE SPEEDY DIVINE INTERVENTION [Daniel 10:12-13, 2 Chronicles 20:1-3, Psalm 46:1]
⭕️When you want God to intervene speedily, engage the altar of prayer and fasting.
BENEFITS OF PRAYER AND FASTING
1) FACILITATES QUICK ANSWERS TO PRAYERS [ISAIAH 58:9]
2) IT IS A PLATFORM FOR INCREASING GRACE [LUKE 4:14
3) IT IS A PLATFORM FOR DELIVERANACE FROM EVIL [ISAIAH 58:6]
⭕️If you are prayerless, evil has the right to keep on harassing you.
4) IT SECURES FAVOUR FROM GOD [ESTHER 4:16-17
⭕️A prayerless man is also an unfavoured man.
⭕️Every time somebody’s walk with God has issues, favour is lost.
5) IT EMPOWERS FULFILLMENT OF PROPHECIES [1 Timothy 1:18, 1 Kings 17:1, 18:1, 18:41-44]
6) PRAYER AND FASTING GIVES US ACCESS TO HIGH PLACES [ISAIAH 58:14]
7) ACCESS TO CONTINUOUS DIVINE GUIDANCE [Isaiah 58:11, 48:17, 21]

⭕️If God can guide you, you will be satisfied.
