Text: Daniel 10:10-13
“For a great and effective door has opened to me, and there are many adversaries.” 1 Corinthians 16:9
The truth is that our prayer is not for God’s benefit nor does it help God to discover our needs. He does not need us to inform Him of our needs because He even knows more about us and what is best for us than we can ever know. Both our past, present and future are well known to Him. This is what the scriptures say about the Holy Spirit.: “He knows us far better than we know ourselves, knows our pregnant condition, and keeps us present before God.” (Rom 8:27 MSG).
Yes, even though God knows all that we need, but because we are in the fallen world, we need to pray to have them. Good things will not ordinarily come to you unless you pray them into existence. The Bible calls the devil, the god of this world (2 Cor 4:4). So, It is not the problem of provision but the system that doesn’t allow the provision to be a reality.
According to our text, as soon as Daniel began to pray, his request was granted and dispatched yet it could not reach his hand. For twenty one days, his answer was held down. But as he persisted in prayer, the road was cleared and his answer was made manifest. If he didn’t pray at all, though God knew what he needed, he wouldn’t have received anything. If he hadn’t persisted in prayer, his answers would have been lost in the process. Prayer is still the channel for the delivery of your benefits.
Paul also shared his experience of how the adversary attempted to shut the great and effective door that God opened for him. (I Cor 16:9).
You see, friends, we are in a world mounted with satanic barricades at almost every junction. It takes your prayer to have your needs scale through. Effective delivery system is taking goods from the source to the needed place or person, at the right time and in the right condition. Prayer is your most effective delivery system. It helps you to receive your needs from the Father, crush all the satanic barricades and finally deliver to your hands, just exactly as it was received.
Ineffective delivery system is the reason why goods get missing, stolen, damaged or corrupted along the way.
God knows what you need but it takes prayer to possess your possessions. May your prayer delivery system not fail in Jesus name.
1. Father, please, let me not be weary in the place of prayer, lest my prayer delivery system fail in Jesus name.
2. I arise in the place of prayer and I refuse to suffer delay or abortion of my testimonies in Jesus name.
1. I have an effective prayer delivery system and my testimonies are not aborted because I don’t give up in the place of prayer.
2. Through prayer I break through every satanic roadblocks to receive from the Lord.
