INSPIRING DAILY DEVOTIONAL ® … You can stop deaths

Text(s) for today:  Read Acts 12:1-17.

“Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayers was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. Acts 12:4 KJV

Do you know that many who are dead (physically and spiritually) today would have  been delivered if intercessory prayers were offered for them! Bible tells us! In 2 Thessalonians 3:1-2, Bible  tells us of how intercessory prayers can deliver us from unreasonable and wicked men.

In the story we just read from Acts, Bible tells us of how  Apostle James was caught by Herod. Perhaps, the members of the church had thought, “they’ve caught Apostle James, they’re joking! Apostle James is such a powerful man of God, he’ll come out of the cells.” But that did not happen; they sat down until Apostle James was killed and then the tyrant moved on to Apostle Peter. He got Peter apprehended.

” Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.” Acts 12:5.

After Peter’s arrest, they had a change of attitude. Indeed, they gained spiritual consciousness. Bible tells us of how they prayed 24 hours a day , 7 days a week, till Peter was miraculously released and when Peter left the cells and entered the house, they were still praying! Praise be to God!

Obviously, they regretted for leaving Apostle James to the potency of his own faith and prayers. Had they known!

Start using prayers today to dictate what happens to your aged mother in the hospital. Indeed, this kind of prayer has the power to turn away/ annul the (physical) death sentence on the life of a relative, stop a stubbornnes of a sibling, halt a friend’s/relative’s journey to hell by bestowing on him salvation.

It’s important you note that for this kind of prayer (intercessory prayers), you don’t stop till you see what you want. The church continued unwaveringly till their prayers got Apostle Peter out of the cells. Your prayer today can bring salvation to that moslem friend of yours. This prayer can change the financial standing of your family. This prayer can restore peace in your house. Begin today!

Prayer & Confessions  (pray out loudly)

Lord I thank you so much for the power in my intercessory prayers. I receive the discipline to engage in this kind of prayer daily. I’m causing great changes to situations around me and in the lives of those around the world, in Jesus’ matchless name. Amen!
