SCRIPTURE: Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them. Acts 13:2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The altar of prayer is the altar of separation and consecration.
Prayer has been considered to be the backbone of every committed Christian. That is why a prayerless Christian lives a life of struggle.
Prayer is a spiritual process with tangible products both physically and spiritually.
Now, let me give you two products of prayer.
i. The altar of prayer is the altar of consecration.
Prayer separates a person from bad habits, friends, connections and associations. The place of prayer is the place of consecration. It is at the place of prayer that one’s stained garment can be cleansed to become white. The place of prayer is the place of consecration and sanctification.
When the disciples gathered together at the place of prayer, the Holy Ghost said, Separate me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereunto I have called them (Acts 13:2). So, Prayer brings separation from sin. The altar of prayer is the altar of separation and consecration.
iii. The altar of prayer is the altar of empowerment
It is not possible for a person to be prayerful and be powerless. The altar of prayer is the altar of empowerment for manifestation.
Luke 3:21-22 says, Now when all the people were baptized, it came to pass, that Jesus also being baptized, and praying, the heaven was opened, And the Holy Ghost descended in a bodily shape like a dove upon him, and a voice came from heaven, which said, Thou art my beloved Son; in thee I am well pleased.
When Jesus Christ was being baptised and was praying at the same time, the heavens opened and the Holy Ghost descended on Him. The altar of prayer is the altar of impartation. It is the altar of empowerment. You cannot be prayerful and be powerless.
Remember this: The altar of prayer is the altar of separation and consecration.
1. Allow the ministry of prayer to cleanse and empower you for a successful living.
2. Be intentional and consistent in prayer.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You separate me from every filthiness of life as I pray. I receive empowerment at the place of prayer, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
