Rhapsody of Realities 16th May 2021 Sunday – He Invited Us To Pray

Rhapsody of Realities 16th May 2021 Sunday Devotional Guide By Pastor Chris Oyahkilome

 

TOPIC: He Invited Us To Pray(Rhapsody of Realities 16th May 2021 Sunday )

Scripture: And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint (Luke 18:1).

Rhapsody of Realities 16th May 2021 Sunday Message

God asked us to pray, because He plans to answer. Prayer is His idea; He invited us to pray. This should inspire you to pray, because the beautiful part about praying is the answers you get.

Some people have become so used to praying without answers that they now lack the confidence to pray. The reason is that they don’t understand this truth. Moreover, they’re praying amiss; they’re not praying the right way. I always get results when I pray, and you should too. The question then is, “How do you pray?”

In the New Testament, we pray in the Name of Jesus. We can ask the Father for anything in the Name of Jesus, and He’ll give it to us. This was what Jesus meant when he stated in John 16:23-24: “And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”

When we pray, we stand in the place of Jesus, we’re taking His place; so, we can’t be praying to Him in His Name, or while standing in His stead. In addition, we may demand that something be done or occur, in the Name of Jesus; this isn’t prayer; rather, it’s exercising the authority of His Name, as in John 14:12-14. That’s what Peter did in Acts 3:6: “Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”

So, prayer in the New Testament is geared to effecting changes. You can effect definite changes in the realm of the spirit through prayer, to your advantage. That’s why Jesus said, “…men ought always to pray, and not to faint.” That means pray always, and don’t give up, because when you pray, you make power available for the works of righteousness. Through prayer, we cause the will of God to be done in the earth as it is in heaven. Praise God!

CONFESSION
Dear Father, I thank you for the blessing and privilege of prayer; you asked us to pray, because you plan to answer. Even now, I pray for increased knowledge of your Word amongst your children today, and that your wisdom will guide our hearts and rule our minds to produce works of righteousness for the Kingdom, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Open Heaven 16th May 2021 Sunday – You Can Be Rich And Righteous

Published

Open Heaven 16th May 2021 Sunday Devotional Guide By Pastor E.A Adeboye

 

TOPIC: You Can Be Rich And Righteous(Open Heaven 16th May 2021 Sunday)

MEMORISE:
“Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.” – (Proverbs 8:18)

READ: Malachi 3:10-12 (KJV)
10. Have we not all one father? hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother, by profaning the covenant of our fathers?

  1. Judah hath dealt treacherously, and an abomination is committed in Israel and in Jerusalem; for Judah hath profaned the holiness of the LORD which he loved, and hath married the daughter of a strange god. 
  2. The LORD will cut off the man that doeth this, the master and the scholar, out of the tabernacles of Jacob, and him that offereth an offering unto the LORD of hosts.

MESSAGE:
Many children of God have misconceptions about prosperity. Some think that being a Christian means that they have to be poor, forgetting that God Himself said in Proverbs 8:18:
Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.

Imagine God, our Father having the possession of riches and righteousness. This revelation counters the notion that you cannot be righteous and rich at the same time. Today, decree that the power to get wealth shall come upon you in Jesus’ name.

Those people who think that wealth is alien to God run after the devil and he deceives them into thinking that he has wealth. The devil tried this with Jesus in Luke 4:6-7, but our Saviour knows better. The truth is that only God can give you power to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18). He blessed Abraham, Isaac and Jacob in their generations as we see in Genesis 22:15-18; 26:12-14; 32:9-10. When Jabez cried unto God in (1 Chronicles 4:10), God blessed him greatly. Peter, the struggling fisherman, encountered the King of glory at the lake of Gennesaret, and suddenly he became prosperous, looking for additional hands to help him gather his bountiful harvest (Luke 5:4-9). This same God will give you power to get wealth today in Jesus’ name.

The question now is “How do we get this power to become wealthy?” It is simple. Always worship the Lord with fear and trembling. Commit to meditating on His word (Joshua 1:8, Deuteronomy 28:1). You must also not forget to be like Him in your dedication to service. God would only give His riches and honour to diligent people; you must never be lazy or idle. Furthermore, you must keep His commandments in the area of tithe, offering and first-fruits, remembering the needy, the widow and the orphans (Proverbs 19:17). Finally, you must live and spend your income prudently because Proverbs 21:17 says “He that loveth pleasure shall be a poor man:…”

We shall be wise, in the mighty name of Jesus.

PRAYER POINT:
Father, please give me the power to get wealth and I will become a channel of blessing to the world.

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
Mark 4-5

HYMN 25 – THERE SHALL BE SHOWERS OF BLESSING
  1. There shall be showers of blessing:
    This is the promise of love;
    There shall be seasons refreshing,
    Sent from the Saviour above.

REFRAIN:
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drops ’round us are falling,
But for the showers we plead.

  1. There shall be showers of blessing:
    Precious reviving again;
    Over the hills and the valleys,
    Sound of abundance of rain. 
  2. There shall be showers of blessing;
    Send them upon us, Oh Lord!
    Grant to us now a refreshing;
    Come and now honour Thy Word.
  3. There shall be showers of blessing;
    Oh, that today they might fall,
    Now, as to God, we’re confessing,
    Now as on Jesus we call!

Reading 1, Acts 1:15-17, 20-26
15 One day Peter stood up to speak to the brothers — there were about a hundred and twenty people in the congregation,

16 ‘Brothers,’ he said, ‘the passage of scripture had to be fulfilled in which the Holy Spirit, speaking through David, foretells the fate of Judas, who acted as guide to the men who arrested Jesus-

17 after being one of our number and sharing our ministry.

20 Now in the Book of Psalms it says: Reduce his encampment to ruin and leave his tent unoccupied. And again: Let someone else take over his office.

21 ‘Out of the men who have been with us the whole time that the Lord Jesus was living with us,

22 from the time when John was baptising until the day when he was taken up from us, one must be appointed to serve with us as a witness to his resurrection.’

23 Having nominated two candidates, Joseph known as Barsabbas, whose surname was Justus, and Matthias,

24 they prayed, ‘Lord, you can read everyone’s heart; show us therefore which of these two you have chosen

25 to take over this ministry and apostolate, which Judas abandoned to go to his proper place.’

26 They then drew lots for them, and as the lot fell to Matthias, he was listed as one of the twelve apostles.

Catholic Daily Mass Reading Sunday 16th May 2021

Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 103:1-2, 11-12, 19-20
1 [Of David] Bless Yahweh, my soul, from the depths of my being, his holy name;

2 bless Yahweh, my soul, never forget all his acts of kindness.

11 As the height of heaven above earth, so strong is his faithful love for those who fear him.

12 As the distance of east from west, so far from us does he put our faults.

19 Yahweh has fixed his throne in heaven, his sovereign power rules over all.

20 Bless Yahweh, all his angels, mighty warriors who fulfil his commands, attentive to the sound of his words.

Gospel, John 17:11-19
11 I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep those you have given me true to your name, so that they may be one like us.

12 While I was with them, I kept those you had given me true to your name. I have watched over them and not one is lost except one who was destined to be lost, and this was to fulfil the scriptures.

13 But now I am coming to you and I say these things in the world to share my joy with them to the full.

14 I passed your word on to them, and the world hated them, because they belong to the world no more than I belong to the world.

15 I am not asking you to remove them from the world, but to protect them from the Evil One.

16 They do not belong to the world any more than I belong to the world.

17 Consecrate them in the truth; your word is truth.

18 As you sent me into the world, I have sent them into the world,

19 and for their sake I consecrate myself so that they too may be consecrated in truth.

Reading 2, First John 4:11-16
11 My dear friends, if God loved us so much, we too should love one another.

12 No one has ever seen God, but as long as we love one another God remains in us and his love comes to its perfection in us.

13 This is the proof that we remain in him and he in us, that he has given us a share in his Spirit.

14 We ourselves have seen and testify that the Father sent his Son as Saviour of the world.

15 Anyone who acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God, God remains in him and he in God.

16 We have recognised for ourselves, and put our faith in, the love God has for us. God is love, and whoever remains in love remains in God and God in him.
