TOPIC:Changing Your Life Through Persistent Prayer
Scripture: But he stayed behind, alone. Then a man came and wrestled with him until just before daybreak. Genesis 32:24 (GNT)
Thought For The Day: Your name can open or close doors; it can bring attraction or rejection.
It can be confirmed that the objective of praying effectively is not the exertion of physical energy but seeing results from the prayer.
Jacob was a man whose life was changed by the power of persistent prayer. It is important to highlight few negative trends in his life that made him to pray persistently:
1. He was a victim of wrong identity, name and perception.
Whenever people saw him, what came to their mind was evil. Jacob means a trickster. A person’s name and identity determines their opportunity. Your name can open or close doors; it can bring attraction or rejection. If you have grown with a wrong identity, people could hate you before they see you but that is broken today, in the Name of Jesus Christ.
2. Jacob was a victim of isolation and desolation.
He was disconnected from his loved ones for more than 20 years until God prevailed in his life.
Beloved, like Jacob, you can alter every negative trend in your life by persistent prayer. I curse the root of every negative trend in your life and family in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Your name can open or close doors; it can bring attraction or rejection.
1. Have a constant prayer schedule.
2. Persist in prayer until your destiny is changed.
