The Word of God recommends in Ephesians 6:18 that we should be “praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication (…) “. In my exhortation today, I would like to focus on the prayer of supplications.
The Lord Jesus wept with vehement cries and tears, pleading with God to help him pass the test of the cross successfully and praying for His resurrection (Hebrews 5:7). Bartimaeus shouted loudly to ask Jesus to help him recover his sight (Luke 18:38-39). Likewise, in her supplications, Hannah no longer had words to express her distress as she could not give birth (1 Samuel 1:12-15).
Faced with certain challenges, the Holy Spirit can push you into the supplication mode. You will be able to discern this when you feel deep feelings of sadness and distress that will lead you to deprive yourself of sleep (to watch in prayer) and/or food (to seek the face of God), etc. The prayer of supplications makes your heart cry before God. When you implore the Lord to intervene in a given situation, you are actually telling Him that He is the Almighty and the only one able to meet your need.
“Blessed be the Lord, Because He has heard the voice of my supplications!” says the Psalmist in Psalm 28:6. Yes, God is particularly attentive to the prayers of his children. Cry out to Him, Beloved: this stubborn situation that you have been in for so long will stop! As He did for Manasseh (2 Chronicles 33:12-13), your heavenly Father will allow Himself to be lenient and will answer your pleas. Then you will experience His victory.
May God bless you Beloved
“Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”.
” Who, in the days of His flesh, when He had offered up prayers and supplications, with vehement cries and tears to Him who was able to save Him from death, and was heard because of His godly fear”.
“He called out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!””.
2 Chronicles 33:13
“And when he prayed to him, the LORD was moved by his entreaty and listened to his plea; so he brought him back to Jerusalem and to his kingdom. Then Manasseh knew that the LORD is God”.
