PERSONAL PRAYER ALTAR
It is our prayer that the Lord will restore both Corporate and Personal Prayer Altars in our Nation: that His children will all return to the place of prayer; that they will be strong in prayer, and will continue to fan Personal Prayer Altars in their homes, and keep the Fire of God burning always on these Altars.
When there is continuous prayers in our homes, our marriages will be stronger, our children will be established in righteousness and protected from the outside world. The love of God will be established in our homes, the family unit will grow stronger, and our communities will be a better place to live in. A Nation is made up by the people therein and righteous families make a righteous Nation. “Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people (Proverbs 14:34)”
Please, Please, Please, Women!!!
We call on all mothers to arise in the place of prayer. The problems in the society today cannot be resolved by the Government; they are trying, but have many limitations and are confused in a lot of ways. We know that a long lasting solution to the current problems in our Nations can only come from God. Except the Lord builds a house, they labour in vain who build it: except the Lord keeps the city, the watchman watches but in vain. (Psalms 127:1).
But, If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and heal their land.(2Chronicles 7:14)
Below is an excerpt of what the Lord said to us during one of our Wailing Women prayer sessions. Please, read it and be blessed;-
There are so many clusters of activities around you that make you not to give me concrete times of devotion. What do you call the time you spend in my presence? ‘Devotion time’ isn’t it?
Do you know what it means? I want personal devotion with you. Make time for me in your closet. Make time for me in your home;not corporate, but personal devotion. That is when I reach you personally. I crave it from you more this time.
There is a relationship I will build with you that is intertwined. We will work like magnets attracting each other. My personal relationship with you modifies you. It does a lot in your wellbeing. It changes your behaviour, attitude and character. The nearer you are to me, the farther away you are from the world and the flesh. You cannot be close to me and allow the flesh dictate what you do.
I want you to cultivate the simplicity of living your life to please me and being free from dictates of the flesh. You can only acquire this by cultivating a rich personal relationship with me. I want real closeness with you. You will be afraid to bring defilement on yourself when you are close to me. Before you do anything, you will examine and weigh it in the light of my word. The nearer to me you are the farther you are from the world,
I am telling you how to move with me from now on. Make out time of devotion with me. If you like, you can draw a rota and make time for personal devotion. No matter how busy you are, be close to me. I need that personal devotion,
I can relate to you through personal devotion. It is between me and you. A time when you will be open to me, get to know more about who you are. It will be a time to prune your personally for more intimate relationship with me. It is not a relationship where you time me but one in which you are free with me and not limited by time.
How many times have you come just to give me praise? Have you sought me with praises? Have you ever cornered me or roped me in with praises?
There are things that are hidden from you. To find out, you must begin to dialogue with me. There has to be a rapport so that we can partner with each other and do things together. Do you know that you can be so lost in me, that you will not feel the impact of the world? You will have no taste for the things of the world, nor desire for them. They will not affect you in any way.
