From his prayer, firstly, Remember God’s covenant relationship, if your prayer is going to have effect, if your prayer is going to have power, if your prayer is going to be efficacious, if your prayer is going to work, if heaven is going to back your prayer you must remember God’s Covenant, remember whom he is, remember he is the Lord that keepeth covenant and he doesn’t change. The man in dire situation said “Oh God of my father Abraham”, he knew the God he was calling, “the God of my father Isaac, the God that said to me” that means this man was in relationship, he knew who he was praying to, Job sad “I know whom I have believed”, Daniel said “They that do know their God”, Paul said “I am persuaded”. Anybody that had a testimony, anybody that had tasted of God’s faithfulness, anybody that is in covenant relationship will never be defeated. As small as David he said my king when I was small and I was leading my fathers cattle a lion came and attacked me and in the name of the Lord I killed it, a bear also came and I smote him so who is this uncircumcised philistine, the same God who has been with me and was with me in the wilderness and in the field, that same God is with me here, he will not abandon me. When the people of God know that their God is with them, he will not fail them. When situations rises up they will call on God and he will answer them, is see God answering you today.
2 Chronicles 6:10 says, As sorrowful, yet always rejoicing, as poor yet making many rich, as having nothing yet possessing all things, as I am standing before you today, I know I have the grace to make people millionaires even if “as poor, please listen to me, listen to what God is saying , and you will just discover that you will not struggle, as long as you listen and make up your mind to do grace will locate you. The Lord spoke to me saying, “Teach them the prayers of the bible, if I did it for Abidjah, if I did it for Asa, if I did it for Moses, Aron and Miriam, I can do it for them, I am not a respecter of persons”. So I made up my mind to go through the prayers of the bible and I am going from scripture to scripture to show you that these things be true. Today I am going to be look at one of our dear fathers, brother Jacob who was later called Israel, in Genesis 32:9-12 you will discover this man’s prayer, desperate prayer, after he deceived the, brother took his blessings ran away to Leban’s house, served and became a very big man the Lord called him and said to him “Jacob go back to your father’s house”, now when he was going he remembered that when he left Canan his brother was looking for him to kill and if he cross this river and the heart of his brother Easu is not changed then he and his family will perish. He was so desperate and he prayed a prayer that we are going to study today. Four thing he prayed for in verses 9 to 12.
