November 21 – Prayer Changes Situations

Daily Bible Life

A man called Jabez in the Bible realized that he was born with a limited status; he took a proactive approach to address the situation by praying to God for a change of status. God answered his prayers, and the rest was (an outstanding) history. the Bible stated, “Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested” (1 Chronicles 4:9-10).

 

Lesson:

Children of God must understand the importance of prayer and make effective use of it. Indeed, prayer is an effective tool that any Christian can use to overcome any situation! Prayer is powerful at destroying the works of Satan. It earns believers an opportunity to exercise their spiritual power without any obstacle. Satan trembles whenever a Christian prays (by mentioning the name of Jesus Christ)!

 

No Christian should consider prayer as a rigorous exercise to perform. Prayer is actually a very simple exercise that anyone can explore. Prayer does not cost money, yet it remains the most effective tool for influencing any situation!

 

Anyone who does not consider it difficult to chat with his or her friend should also not consider it difficult to talk to God in prayers. Every Christian ought to call on God through *Prayer of Thanksgiving* and *Prayer of Petition*.

 

Prayer:

Dear God, please give me the ability to effectively pray to you at all times. Also, help me to trust you for a solution whenever I make my petition. Please make me someone who prays with a heart of expectations!

 

Help me to find it convenient to tell you whatever is bothering me. Do not let me hesitate to tell you how I feel about any situation. Give me the power to table my request before you so that my joy can be full. Earn me your victory, and give me every reason to praise you always! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
