TEXT: Matthew 24:42, Ephesians 6:18
THEME: THERE MUST BE NO LOSS OF CONCENTRATION
"Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak. " (Matthew 26:41)
This is very crucial period in the history of this nation and the whole world at large. It is a period when believers seek to consolidate on the gains of serving God through His Son Jesus Christ, while on the other hand, the devil seeks to strip them of every glory that is upon them and cause them to go to hell. So, it is a very dicey period. Any mistake can prove suicidal. That is why you must be at alert and never lose concentration.
You must never be carried away by the euphoria of your salvation or by any form of merriment that is going on around you. The times are evil. This is a time to seek to be spiritual by drawing near the Lord through prayer, fasting and serious supplication and intercession. Any believer worth his onion cannot remain a nominal Christian now. You must become conversant with the art of warfare — that is, if you are serious about surviving. The forerunners of the anti-Christ have unleashed on the earth and serious efforts are required to combat this aggression against the children of God. The prophecies concerning the second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ are being gradually fulfilled right before our very eyes. So, be watchful. If there is a time when you need to pray most as a believer, that time is now. Shake off every sleeping and slumbering and lukewarm-ness and claim what rightfully belongs to you.
Worship/praise God and then take the following prayer points:
1. Every spirit of sleeping and slumbering assigned against my prayer life; be shaken into fire in Jesus' name.
2. Every program of the devil for my life in the remaining part of this month; be destroyed, in Jesus' name. (State all such likely programs death, sickness, failure, disappointment, limitation and so on)
3. Holy Ghost, reveal every hidden evil plot against my life during the "ember" months, in Jesus' name.
4. Any temptation which the devil has set to distract our G. O, our mummy and The Lord's Chosen ministry; be uprooted in Jesus' name.
