If there’s anything more important than prayer it’s repentance. We cannot fully grasp the power of prayer, without going through, the process of personal repentance. I have prayed, for many people and have literally felt a steel wall, holding back their breakthrough, only because of lack of repentance from sin.  It’s after I lead them in a prayer of repentance, that the walls come tumbling down and victory is won.

2 Chronicles 33:11-13

Then God directed the leaders of the troops of the king of Assyria to come after Mansseh.  They put a hook in his nose, shackles on his feet, and took him off to Babylon.  Now that he was in trouble, he went to his knees in prayer asking for help-total repentance before the God of his ancestors.  As he prayed, God was touched; God listened and brought him back to Jerusalem as king.  That convinced Manasseh that God was in control.

That’s so typical, of what most of us do, when we get ourselves into trouble?  It’s only them, that we think of going to God for help.

Before we run to God for help, we end up  spiritually like Menasseh, with a hook in our nose, shackles on our feet, and in a self-made prison.  But, like Manseeh, when we find ourselves all bond-up in some kind of sin; we should fall on our knees and ask God for help, total repentance in prayer. This should be done on a daily basis.  Not one day, should go by, without prayer and repentance.  We all fall, short and we all need to examine our hearts, before God daily!

What happens when we do this?  God, listens and takes us to the place, where we need to be.  Then you will realize that He is in control and you have answer prayers.

What holds you back from complete breakthrough?  Is it secret sin? Is it laziness?  How about pride?  Pride makes you think, I don’t need anyones help, I can handle this myself.

For the most part everyone reading this blog, may not say that out loud, but in your heart, your attitude is the same.  I don’t need your help God!  And you’ll show it, by living a prayer-less and un-repented lifestyle.  That needs to change today.

So, let us repent and ask God for the forgiveness of our sins.  And let us pray with a heart after God.

Till next Time!
