Luke 11:5-13

You live in a world of plenty; a world of unlimited creativity; a world in which control has been placed in your hands. You control what happens around you by what you say.  You create the things you desire to see or have through your prayers. James raised a lamentation when he saw how many were suffering severe lack and deprivations in the midst of plenty. So he cried out, “You fight and war. Yet you do not have because you do not ask. You ask and do not receive, because you ask amiss, that you may spend it on your pleasures” (James 4:2-3).


If we fail to pray, God does nothing, even though He is ever present with us. Prayer is earthly licence for heavenly intervention. God handed over the earth to man at creation. Whatever man allows is what will be established here; whatever he disallows will not be established here. “The heaven, even the heavens, are the LORD'S; But the earth He has given to the children of men” (Psalms 115:16). The right to rule on earth is yours and you rule by what you decree.

What do you want to see in the year we have just stepped into? What do you want to become of your walk with God; the works of your hands; your family and your community; your leaders and your nation? Table your request before God now and always and He will grant you the desires of your heart.

  • Raise a song of worship and thank God for being your Father and for being so gracious.
  • Pray for the salvation of those that do not have this privilege yet of acknowledging God as their Father.
  • Pray that more labourers will arise and take the Dominion Mandate to the ends of the earth.

CONFESSION: My confidence is that whenever I ask anything in accordance with God’s will, He hears and answers me.
