Greetings my friends, in the name of Jesus.
Last night, at Joint Heirs With Christ Ministry in the village of Ladyville, Belize District, Pastor Oscar of Santo Domingo, preached that "you have to pass a process to receive a blessing." What is that process? The process, preached Pastor Oscar, is intercession through prayer and fasting. He says that you must pray to get the blessing.
My Sister, Inda, and I had studied early Sunday morning the text found in 1 Samuel 1:9-13, where we are told of Hannah's distress for a son. Hannah prayed to the Lord continuously, she cried bitterly as she prayed, she prayed silently; she prayed with her lips moving but no sounds coming out. Pastor Oscar in his sermon directed the congregation to the same text Ind ns I had studied earlier in the morning, 1 Samuel 1:9-13, "And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore. And she vowed a vow, and said, O LORD of hosts, if thou wilt indeed look on the affliction of thine handmaid, and remember me, and not forget thine handmaid, but wilt give unto thine handmaid a man child, then I will give him unto the LORD all the days of his life, and there shall no razor come upon his head. And it came to pass, as she continued praying before the LORD, that Eli marked her mouth. Now Hannah, she spake in her heart; only her lips moved, but her voice was not heard..." (KJV) In verse 19, we see that Hannah's prayer was answered, Hannah got pregnant with a son. Glory!
Friends, when we pray continuously and unceasingly God will answer our prayers. What are you praying for today? Are you praying continuously and unceasingly? Are you fasting? Are you praying believing that God is hearing your cry as He did with Hannah? Friends, prayer is the key, prayer is the key. Keep God first, believe in His promises, and just keep praying unceasingly. I thank God for the power of the Holy Spirit.
