“And will not [our just] God defend and avenge His elect [His chosen ones] who cry out to Him day and night? Will He delay [in providing justice] on their behalf?” Luke 18:7 AMPV
Last Wednesday, GOD awakened me at 1:30 a.m., and I heard Him whispering in my inner spiritual ear…. “THERE IS NOT ENOUGH EMPHASIS PUT ON PRAYER.” I quickly looked the word emphasis up and discovered the meaning was identical to what I perceived GOD was whispering to me. Emphasis means to lay stress upon and to emphasize a point. PRAYER should be a daily focal point. EMPHASIZED PRAYER is truly believing GOD will do everything or anything you cannot do. I also interpreted GOD to mean that there is not enough focused pressure put on PRAYER. Focused pressure on PRAYER means being persistent (continuing firmly despite difficulty)and consistent(doing something, in the same way, every time for accuracy.)
It is the focused pressure that wins the victory. You want to be victorious, put focused pressure on your PRAYERS. As I went deeper into worship the same morning, GOD said….”PRAYER IS THE MAIN VEHICLE.” I interpreted that to mean, through consistent faith, believing PRAYER, your request can be answered sooner. Because it is persistent faith-filled PRAYER that makes the PRAYER vehicle move and delivers PRAYER request answers according to GOD’S Will and timing.
It was the persistent and consistent widow’s drive that granted her her heart's desire according to the WILL of GOD.
Dear Heavenly FATHER,
Thank you for the emphasizing prayer alert that prayer should be emphasized more.
May we let it be our luxury vehicle for your Glory and our good. -Amen in JESUS name.
