“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty.” 1Timothy 2:1-2
Prayer magnifies God, focuses you on Jesus, builds up and edifies your inner man, and makes you more sensitive to the voice of God. “Well, I know God hears other people’s prayers, but I’m not sure my prayers are getting through to Him.” If you have received salvation that only comes through Jesus, you can know for a fact that God hears you when you pray and if you know He hears you, you know you have the petition you have requested of Him.
“Well, I’m not a prayer warrior like others. After one minute in prayer, I always fall asleep.” Well, pray with the prayer warriors. A companion of wise men will be wise. Their habit of prayer will eventually rub off on you. Praying for hours may not be what you are accustomed to, but don’t focus on the length of time. Hide the clock if you must, pace the floor if it helps you stay awake, but focus in on getting before God’s face.
“I know it’s important to pray, but I never have time. I’m always super busy.” From the time you wake up in the morning to the time you go to bed, the enemy is busy thinking of ways to steal, kill and destroy your life. You are Satan’s top priority. Therefore, continual prayer must be your top priority. It’s only by God’s goodness and mercy that He blesses us even when we haven’t spent not one minute in prayer. But we aren’t to live each day on the sheer mercy of God. We are to thrive on His grace that only comes as a result of humbling ourselves.
“The problems in my life have been going on for so long that I have lost faith in the power of prayer. Seems like the more I pray, the worse it gets.” That’s exactly what the enemy wants you to think. So he designs his demonic attacks to worsen with every prayer you pray so that you will think prayer is futile and pointless. Don’t be deceived! Your prayers are powerful. Pray, pray, pray! You are built for supplication, designed to worship to God, made to intercede and pray always. Choose to accept God’s invitation to a continual life of prayer.
Prayer: Father God, You are my God and I am Your daughter. Thank You that You hear me when I pray. I pray that You continue to renew my mind to the power of prayer. Teach me how to develop a lifestyle of continual prayer to you, not out of religious duty or exercise, but for the right reasons. This world needs prayer and you have built me for the spiritual task. Thank You for giving me such a powerful gift that I can offer everyday of my life. In Jesus Name, Amen.

GID I Thank YOU For The Gift Of Prayer. I Sometimes Fall Off But I Thank YOU FOR Still Hearing Me. GOD I Love YOU!
Thank you Woman of God for I needed this. Due to the demands of work, working mandatory overtime and caregiver for my elderly mother, I stop praying fervently like I used due to tiredness. But this devotional really hit to the core of my being. I will press in prayer and return to my intercession as well as start working on the things God told me to do. Blessings.
Pray and wash the dishes. Pray and fold clothes. On the floor, on the bed, where ever, whenever. Hide in the bathroom or the closet if you must. God does hear, He’s got all the time in the world for you and me.
It’s a conversation and we have ACCESS to the throne!!
PTL my sista Glory Hallelujah 🙌🏽 U are sooo
right. Thank U for your comment
There is a scripture that reads our prayers go right unto His hears.
He hears, directly, they don’t need to be mailed, they go straight to Him.
Once He hears I know He has already set things in motion.
And when we pray sometimes things do get worse, Satan feels threatened because we know our God can do the impossible.
God’s will be done!
God bless all of you!
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks for this is the will of GOD concerning you, the fervent effectual prayer of a righteous man availeth much! Thank you GOD for access, Jesus and the Holy Spirit interceding on our behalf as we know not as we should pray!
Remain in prayer and continually keep KESHA, and the sistahs of DOTK lifted in prayer 🙏🏽
Good Morning Sister Kesha and daughters of the King. The Holy Spirit leads, guides, and is a teacher as well as intercedes for us. God always know what we need and when we need to hear it. I so like how He fights on our behalf, shining light on those things that the enemy tries to fight us with in the dark!! Thank You, Lord, for making us triumph in every place. 🙌🙌🙌🙏🙏❤❤🤗
THANK YOU FOR HEARING MY CRIES
I love this message!!! It reminds me of my late mother’s daily reminder, “Pray without ceasing, baby.” (1 Thessalonians 5:17) “How do you pray without stopping, mama?”I would ask her… In her humble fashion, mama would always encourage obedience to her instruction, to God’s Word and she would reassure me that that God is faithful and that it would all make sense “by and by”.😊 Mama was right.❤️
Praise the Lord! Thank you for sharing this message of encouragement of prayer and faith in our Savior Jesus Christ.
The Lord indeed answered two extremely important prayers recently. For each situation, I kept praying even when things became worse, which really tested my faith and made me start doubting if my prayers were being answered. It was not easy but I purposely still prayed daily anyway.
Yesterday was when I received news of my second answered prayer. I had prayed daily to the due date. Thank You God Almighty for seeing me, hearing me and blessing me with Your grace and favor. I pray for my sisters in Christ who are praying to You in their closet that they may receive Your amazing grace, love and favor. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
THANK YOU LORD for Hearing Me when I Pray, THANK YOU for Reminding Me that My Prayers are not in vain, THANK YOU for Allowing Me to be able to Commune with You ❣️
I guess there is only two times Pray …. When I feel like it and when I don’t feel like it. THANK YOU FATHER ❣️
This is so Beautiful! Thank you Intercessor Keisha and DOTK thank you for your SHOWUP: Spiritually Healthy Overcoming Whole and United for Purpose!
God hears our prayer and sits at the right hand of the Father constantly making intercession for us!
Cheering you on in Jesus name!
Amen. Thank you my sister for this reminder that GOD has given us a special and powerful tool to communicate with Him anytime and any place. This is a weapon we can use to kick the enemy’s butt anytime and anywhere. By the HOLY SPIRIT we can pray without ceasing. The word of GOD says that the fervent prayers of a righteous man availeth MUCH. We have been made the righteousness of GOD, and when we pray situations changed, healing and deliverance take place. Despite what is happening in my life, I shall continue to pray knowing that my prayers have already been answered. By faith I walk, breath and live. Amen 🔥✝️💯
Thank YOU my LORD FATHER GOD ” in JESUS Name AMEN ❤⚘
