Prayer Positions You Rightly – Pastor Poju Oyemade
And when he was come near, he beheld the city, and wept over it, saying if thou hadst known even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto thy peace! But now they are hid from thy eyes. For the days shall come upon thee, that thine enemies shall cast a trench about thee, and compass thee round, and keep thee in on every side, And shall lay thee even with the ground, and thy children within thee; and they shall not leave in thee one stone upon another; because thou knowest not the time of thy visitation.” (Luke 19:41-44)
We all desire to be in an advantageous position in life. This is good but to attain it, we must understand the spiritual process and employ tools available to us.
One of such very effective tools is prayer. Prayer is very powerful and can bring about the change you desire. However, a direct and constant fellowship with God is required. We must learn to pray without ceasing.
Positioning oneself rightly is a conscious act done as we kneel in prayer communicating with God. God also communicates back to us. As this relationship grows and remains constant, we begin to discover our place in Him.
We become aware! This level of awareness marks a new dawn as God has unrestricted access to our lives. Yielding completely to Him through prayer always creates a more intimate relationship with God.
And in spite of our many expectations, we must rejoice and offer up praise to Him. Whether we stand before God seeking that He interferes in things of personal concern or we intercede for others, prayer opens us up to the Holy Spirit. Thereafter, revelations flood in.
Whenever and wherever prayer is a culture amongst people, strange and wonderful things happen. The people who pray are constantly filled with the Spirit. The Spirit of God also works in their subconscious helping them to remain within the plan of God for their lives.
He begins to speak and to regulate what you do. He nudges you where the need is and tells you what specific action(s) you ought to take.
The church is a supernatural entity whose activities should be governed by the Spirit of God. People must be able to flow and function in the Spirit because that is essentially what the church is all about.
When the Holy Ghost from the point of prayer takes charge of your mind, He renews your mind and regulates everything you do. The result is that here on earth, you find yourself rightly positioned within His plan for you-at an advantage!
