I’ve been hearing the words ‘consistent’ and ‘prayer’ in my spirit for a few days now so I thought I’d share a couple of thoughts. First let me say that the dictionary defines consistent as; in agreement or harmony; accordant; stuck together; cohering; agreeing or accordant; compatible; not self-contradictory. So in searching the scriptures regarding consistent prayer, I found one that stood out to me found in James 5:16b AMP; The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
I’m no bible scholar by any means, but it seems to me that when we are in agreement with Gods Word, when we say what He says and keep doing, something happens. According to James, it makes tremendous power available. Available for what? Well, if we read on to verses 17-18 we find this; Elijah was a man with a nature like ours, and he prayed earnestly that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the land for three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth produced its fruit.
I feel that someone out there has grown weary in consistently doing what God has instructed them to do. It may be a missionary in a far away land that has ministered the gospel and not one soul has been saved. This is what the Lord would want you to know, “Don’t stop! Be faithful! Just because you don’t see change doesn’t mean it’s not coming. For centuries I have instructed men and women to call out and pray for their children afar off, that is you. They saw the times and seasons to come and prayed for you so that you could walk in the victory and blessing you walk in today. Don’t be discouraged because you don’t see it happen, do it because I’ve asked you to. You don’t have to understand, I simply ask you to obey.”
My heart cries out to you, Father. Strengthen the weary, those who struggle with discouragement, those with children who have wandered far from the truth. Lift them up today. Open those children’s eyes to see the truth, wake them up that they may serve you. I set my heart to obey you and consistently do what you’ve asked me to do. I don’t need to know why. I don’t need to see the results. I know that my prayers make much power available for your Kingdom to come on the earth and that’s enough for me. Raise up other worshipping warriors to carry your Words today. Make them a mighty army that the enemy trembles at the sight of them waking because their gaining ground.
