SCRIPTURE: And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness. Acts 4:31
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Prayer must be continual for the sustenance of the move of God.
It has been confirmed that prayer with fasting is critical for the sustenance of revival. Prayer must be continual for the sustenance of the move of God. Prayer must be on the increase to sustain the fire of revival, the salvation of souls, healings, miracles, signs and wonders.
According to our anchor Scripture, the place where the disciples prayed was shaken and then the Power of God fell. This happened at the frequency of their prayers (Acts 4:31).
Also, Acts 2:42 says:
And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
So, prayer and fasting is critical for the sustenance and continuity of every move of God.
Now, what kind of prayer ushers us to a continual move of God?
a. Personal and private prayer and fasting.
This is a situation where you embark on the exercise of prayer and fasting on your own. It is called a consecrational fast.
This is what Peter did in Acts 10:9-10. Peter embarked on a personal and private prayer and then doors opened for him.
b. Corporate praying and fasting.
This is a situation where the whole church is involved in prayer and fasting. It is the body of Christ joining forces together in prayer.
When Peter was arrested by Herod, the Church joined forces together in prayer and Peter was released (Acts 12:5).
Beloved, it is good to pray on your own but it is important to pray with the saints. These two must be combined to produce very dangerous effects against the powers of hell.
REMEMBER THIS: Prayer must be continual for the sustenance of the move of God.
1. Go through today’s message once again.
2. Make up your mind to embark on both personal and corporate prayers for the sustenance of the move of God in your life.
