(DOWNLOAD MP3) The Principle of the Prayer of Faith – Apostle Michael Orokpo
We understand from Scriptures that prayers are prescribed for answers. As it is written, Ye lust, and have not: ye kill, and desire to have, and cannot obtain: ye fight and war, yet ye have not, because ye ask not. Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts (James 4:2-3).
Prayer is not a religious activity; it is a communication line between the believer and God. When we pray according to the rules, we have committed God’s integrity to answer us. Thus, one can pray and not get any answer because he is asking amiss.
Also, it is important to know that prayer is not just a platform for making request and having our needs met. Much more, it is a platform for stewardship, which entitles us to rewards that are far more valuable than our request. Making request entitles us to answers but service entitles us to rewards.
Therefore, prayer is an open platform of stewardship for all believers and that centres on making prayer investment towards every of God’s interest on the earth.
