2 Corinthians 6:1-Matthew 9:37-38
Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; 38 Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.Acts 13:1-5You minister to The Lord by worshipping Him, singing his praise and making confessions to His Name. You speak of His greatness of His power, attributes of His mighty Name and things He has done in your life; things consistent with His name.....Thou art worthy o Lord, you have changed my life.......This is ministering to The Lord.You speak to the Holy Ghost just like to talk to the Father, because the Holy Ghost is God.
Acts 4:22-31 When they were filled with the Spirit they spoke the word of God with BOLDNESS......How God wants us to be filled with the Spirit...Speak in tongues and unbelief will fly out the window.....Seed time and harvest shall not cease.......we know now how seed time works and we can manipulate the ground to produce fruit. We can change things!!!There's no space in time, it occurs time and the again; seed time just keeps occurring. If you are going to have crops, you must exercise dominion over the earth. Get rid of the weeds, till the ground and make a demand on the ground to produce a harvest. God made the earth as a shadow of Heaven and the earth is full of the goodness of God.The first and most important of this harvest, to produce a crop at any time is -
1- PREVAILING PRAYER- prayer doesn't change God; you must consider the benevolence and providence of God, already manifested in His word and around us to let us know that God is pre- disposed to doing good; God is caring and is kind. We must understand harvest from the stand point of God's benevolence, that He wants to do us good. Our prayer makes it consistent for God to do for us whatever he would have done, and would have been or made it impossible for Him to do something had we not prayed.Prevailing prayer is not the type you pray and walk away; it's the type of prayer that its as though your heart is bleeding: literary wrestling for the soul of an individual. Your mind constantly goes back to that person, thoughts of him weighs on your mind heavily and causes you to pray consistently in tears and intercession ( standing in the gap ) until the answer comes. Sometimes it's for days, weeks and months until there is a testimony.The value of a soul, is the value of the life of Jesus.....The Holy Spirit needs you to pray through you......He needs your mouth and your body to speak through.....Your body has a right to the earth, spirit without a body cannot pray. Yield to the Holy Spirit to pray, whenever you are having challenges and speak in tongues.
FOCUS YOUR MIND, you need your emotions and feelings to come together to focus on the purpose. You use your mind, focus your mind to channel all of your emotions towards that specific goal. You need your mind to direct yourself .
If your mind is swaying this way and that, YOUR TONGUE helps to direct your mind towards that purpose. You speak forth the word to affect your mind's focus. Channel your emotions towards Him, and you will receive His guidance from the core of your emotions......this is what we call prevailing prayer!!
James 5:16 KJV
Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.James 5:16 AMPConfess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].
Don't let satan have any soul, be persistent and consistent in follow up and retention rate......Prevailing prayer - WE PRAY UNTIL IT IS DONE......IN YOUR SPIRIT YOU WILL KNOW, CAUSE YOU WILL HAVE A NOTE OF VICTORY!!!
