Why Your Prayers Seem Not To Be Yielding Results



"Prayer is not something you start doing now and find worthy effect. Effects and impacts from prayers comes from a stream of investments in prayer time." – Brodrick Emmanuel Ebube 


Severally, the thought of being prayerful without any palpable result leads to majority of the backsliding and decline in fervency which seems to be ravaging the Body of Christ.

The idea of praying gradually becomes sidelined overtime in the life of a person who seems not to be getting even the tinniest amount of responses for his/her prayers.

We've listened to and sat under so many ministrations targeted at revealing the immense benefits which are derivatives from the technology of prayer yet these "teachings" to many are but myths and legends.

Why is it so? What do we seem to be missing in our prayer walk? Why are we not yielding palpable results from our times and sessions of prayer?

Today, By His grace, I am going to be exposing one of the reasons why we have not yielded effects from our prayer sessions. The reason we are have not been able to trap palpable responses and results from heaven as I would be sharing is encapsulated in the concept of the cumulative nature of prayer.

The Cumulative Nature of Prayer

Prayer is never a fire brigade function to orchestrate quickly that which you desire. Many believers do not pray until they are face to face with life-threatening challenges. 

Such an approach to prayer is a wrong one. If you pray only when you figure you need divine intervention you're completely wrong!

Prayer is not something you start doing now and expect to find worthy effect. Effects and impacts from prayers comes from a stream of prayer investments.

Praying only when there's a dire need of urgent intervention would not yield sustainable and substantial results because prayer is a cumulative function.


"And when he had taken the book, the four beasts and four and twenty elders fell down before the Lamb, having every one of them harps, and golden vials full of odors, which are the prayers of saints." – Revelation 5:8

John reveals to us the storability of prayers. Prayers can be stored. In the same way we save money in the bank, we save prayers in golden vials.

Over every issue there is a golden vial for storing your prayers on that issue and until that golden vial is filled up, God is not compelled to act on that case.

If a vial by God's jurisdiction should take ten (10) hours of prayers to fill, your thirty (30) minutes fire-brigade cry would not solve that issue, would it?

Let me use a more relatable analogy. Suppose you have a debt of $10,000 and all you have in your bank account is $1,000 can you pay up that debt? No way! 
To be able to pay the $10,000 debt you must have saved up to that amount in your account already.

God would be handicapped to act over an issue until the vial for that issue has been filled up with prayers. 
The degree of results you command is the decree to which your prayers have filled up your golden vials.

So, the problem is not with God or your inability to articulate the right prayer language but because your prayer time is not sufficient enough for God to act.

Instead of feeling bad that God has refused to answer your prayers or consider losing your fervency of service to Him, brace up because it is a challenge to pray more.

Your prayers are not yielding results because they've not been accumulated sufficiently enough to bring about the results you desire.

God is not a tyrant. God is not wicked. You can't seek God and not find Him. You can't ask Him for bread and He gives you stones. He is a loving God ready and willing to answer His own when they call.

Do not be discouraged! Just PRAY MORE!!

Biblical Principles For Correcting Error in The Body of Christ


One of the many setbacks the Body of Christ is presently suffering from is that of error committed in trying to correct error.

So many have supposedly picked up the call to correct what they deem to be error in the Body of Christ. There are so many apostles, prophets, reverends, evangelists, deacons and so on who have taken up the call to correct supposed errors in the Church regardless of being called by God or not.

With the aim of correcting errors, the Church has succeeded in committing more errors because certain principles for correcting errors where ignored.

The Bible doesn't leave us in the dark as to how the correction of error should be done. It presents us with principles which must be adhered to if we would correct errors accurately and not inflict more errors to the Body.

One fact can not be taken away, there is an office for the correction of error. Not everyone in ministry or in church is supposed to correct error. Nevertheless, the principles which I'd be sharing today would help the Body of Christ understand how the correction of errors should be done.

Principle #1: Correct In Genuine Love For The Body.



"Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing."
– 1 Corinthians 13:1-3

Any kingdom function that is carried out without love is nothing but a charade of God's ideal blueprint for the performance of these function.

Apostle Paul explains this principle when he outlined various spiritual functions. He said this functions are supposed to be operated on the basis of love.

Correcting error in the Body of Christ is a spiritual function and if its performance is carried out without love then we have not truly corrected error.

Love can never be sidelined when the issue of correcting errors comes up. Until we have a genuine love for the Body of Christ we would be creating more errors in our attempt to correct the already existing ones.

Love for the Body of Christ should be a pivotal piece and the driving force for all kingdom functions and correcting errors is not an exception.

Principle #2: Errors Should Be Corrected By Truly Spiritual People


"Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted." – Galatians 6:1

Even though Galatians 6:1 talks about the restoration of one who falls into sin it also contains a principle for correcting error.

The role of correcting errors should be an exclusive reserve for persons who are spiritual. By being spiritual, I am not referring to church attenders but to people who walk diligently in, are highly responsive to, and are controlled by the Spirit of God.

The position of apostle or prophet does not completely reflect the criteria for correcting error.

The correction of error must be performed by persons who have yielded completely to the dealings of the Holy Spirit. The man who has fully subjected his all; will, desire, resource, flesh, intellect, and emotions to the Spirit of God and has come under an active fellowshipping with the Spirit is a candidate for the role of correcting error.

Why does one need to be spiritual in order to profer solutions to existing errors?

The Holy Spirit is the "Spirit of Truth". His job description as the Spirit of Truth is such that He is the only personality who can reveal and guide into all truth.

So the man who has come under the unhindered control of the Holy Spirit is advantaged to the end that the Spirit in him is able to guide him into all truth, a necessary prerequisite for correcting error.

Principle #3: Correct In Meekness


Apostle Paul presents another principle for correcting error this time in his second letter to Timothy.

"In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth;" – 2 Timothy 2:25

Trying to correct out of pride and anger would only aggravate the one who you're trying to correct and chances are that you may never be able to correct that person.

Meekness must take center stage before correcting error should take place.
Taking or making a decision on the template of anger, bitterness, and frustration would result to a greater damage but Apostle Paul shows us a better way – Meekness!

Meekness in dishing out corrections would act as a catalyst, speeding up the process of correcting error.

Conclusion

Correcting error is a kingdom function and all kingdom functions are carried out following principles and precepts.

Failing to carry out kingdom functions with their corresponding principles would shortchange the purpose of that kingdom function.

To correct error we must do so following the principles for correcting error. Let us stop the perpetrating of more errors in our bid to correct the already existing ones by obeying the principles aforementioned.

We could turn this setback caused by correcting error into a major boost for the Body Of Christ.

How To Become Excellent In All Ramifications Of Life


Have you ever been offered a service and the person who was to offer the service was sluggish and disorderly about it? Or
Have you ever attended a church service and something about the protocol unit or the worship team seemed to be off and lacked excellence?

I am sure you would feel thoroughly dissatisfied and in the case of the church service, you may never want to attend that church again.

Excellence is sought after by all and sundry. You can attest to the fact that the TV stations people watch, the radio stations people listen to, the blogs people read, the malls people visit, the Churches people attend, the schools people go to and so on posses high levels of excellence in their mode of operations.

Taking Nigeria as a case study, churches like the Commonwealth of Zion Assembly (COZA), Living Faith Church, House Of David, HICC, Eternity Network International (Koinonia), Dunamis International Gospel Centre and a host of others are exceptional for the excellence they exhibit.

Little wonder why they keep amassing thousands of worshippers every Sunday. No one wants to associate with any body, institution or organization that lacks excellence.

Nothing keeps a person, a business venture, an organization as much as excellence does. The relevance of any thing is maintained by excellence. It is very needful that we exhibit excellence as believers in all that we do.

How then can one become excellent?

From the life of Daniel and other scriptures I would show you how excellence in all ramifications of life can be attained.

1. Pursuing Understanding


"He that hath knowledge spareth his words: and a man of understanding is of an excellent spirit." – Proverbs 17:27

Your possession of understanding is an engineering factor for excellence. Excellence as we see in Proverbs 17:27 is a characteristic of a man who has understanding.

It is not enough to have knowledge. Just possessing the knowledge about the use of a thing does not put you in the position to make good use of it except understanding is imparted into you.

Knowledge is futile and useless unless it is accompanied with understanding. The proper use of knowledge is actualized by the birthing of understanding and Proverbs clearly states that even though knowledge is good, excellence is birthed by understanding.

Seeing that excellence is a function of understanding, how can one gain understanding?

• Maintaining Fellowship With The Holy Spirit

One of the ministries of the person of the Holy Spirit is "teaching". Jesus in intimating His disciples on the job function and description of the Holy Spirit said;

"I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come."
– John 16:12-13

Jesus told His disciples that there are several things He would keep unrevealed due to their inability to comprehend and understand them.

He then introduced the Holy Spirit as the personality who would help the disciples grasp every understanding on the many things Jesus would want to tell them.

He, the Holy Spirit was going to guide them into all truth, helping them gain understanding of the knowledge they posses and the several other hidden things God would want to communicate to them.

If you seek to gain understanding that is superior to that which belongs to this world then you must maintain a cordial relationship with the person of the Holy Spirit. Why?

The ministry and influence of the Holy Spirit is not given on a platter of gold. It would take you to attain intimacy with Him before you become a beneficiary of the goodies of His ministry.

Maintain fellowship with the Holy Spirit and see His personality, influence, and ministry at work in your life one of such is understanding.

• Read Books

"In the first year of his reign, I Daniel understood by books..." – Daniel 9:2

Daniel was a man who possessed an excellent spirit (Daniel 6:3). The text above shows us one of the ways through which Daniel got his excellent spirit. He was an ardent reader of books.

If you desire understanding you must love books. I, personally can trace my understanding and growth in Christ to the books I have read.

Every month, I endeavour to read a minimum of three (3) Christian literatures and countless number of articles on various niches.

The lives of men and women who have exhibited or are exhibiting excellence are characterized by an ardent study of books. If you seek understanding, read books. Read christian literature, read books on general lifestyle, read books on business, read books on family life, just read!

2. Be a Keen Observer


To be excellent you must be a keen observer. Be very observant. Always take an in-depth look at the mode of operation of excellent people and groups.

Solomon said in Proverbs 6:6;

"Go to the ant, thou sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise:"

What Solomon was trying to say was "observe the ants, take a close look at their mode of operation and gain understanding and insight"

A man who is keen about observing is often reckoned with great excellence. Observers usually posses understanding and like I explained in the first point understanding makes room for excellence.

When the Queen of Sheba came to visit Solomon the things she saw made her confess that the things she was told were nothing compared to the things she was seeing (1 Kings 10:7).

The Queen of Sheba spoke on the excellence of King Solomon's court. She talked about the attendance of Solomon's ministers, the sitting of his servants, his cupbearer, his clothing, the food on his table, and the way he worshipped God (1 Kings 10:5)

All she was saying was how excellently Solomon operated. Solomon's excellence can be connected to the fact that he was a man who was keen about observing.

If you go through the writings of Solomon you would find a great deal of observation sessions he undertook.

By carefully observing the mode of conduct of excellent people you gain understanding of the system they implement to make them excellent..

3. Yielding to Prayers


Another point which I believe accounts for the excellence Daniel exhibited is his custom, routine, and frequency with prayers.

"Now when Daniel knew that the writing was signed, he went into his house; and his windows being open in his chamber toward Jerusalem, he kneeled upon his knees three times a day, and prayed, and gave thanks before his God, as he did formerly." – Daniel 6:10

Daniel made a custom out of prayer. He operated the technology of prayers using a routine and a frequency. He prayed three (3) times each day and didn't break the flow even when a decree was signed against prayer to anyone except the king.

During prayer sessions, our nature is crucified allowing God's nature to become ours and one of the natures of God is excellence.
The more your prayers reflect His eternal will and interest, the more His nature is imparted into you.

Get in sync with the nature of God by yielding to prayers.

Excellence in whatever you do is a feasible reality as long as you are ready to undertake the steps just outlined.
