Prayer Points For The Spirit of Obedience


Today we will be dealing with prayer points for the spirit of Obedience. Many people don’t know that the act of obedience is a grace from God. How that Samson was warned earnestly not to marry a woman from a strange land. Despite all warnings, Samson still decided to settle in with Delilah who happen to be a philistine.

The story of Samson ended in a jeopardy simply because he disobeyed the instructions and warnings from God. Similarly in our lives, there are times all we need to do is trust and obey. Let’s take into the account the story of King Saul. He disobeyed simple instruction that was given to him by Samuel. Instead of obeying he made sacrifices to God as atonement for his act of disobedience.

Prophet Samuel told him unequivocally that because you have rejected the voice of the Lord and failed to obey his instruction, the Lord has also rejected him as King. The book of 1 Samuel 15:22-23 Has the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to listen than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of divination, and presumption is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has also rejected you from being king.”

We can deduce from this Bible passage that God detest disobedience. He would rather have us obey than coming to seek for forgiveness. Little wonder God honor the word of Prophet Samuel as he pronounced the end of Saul’s reign as King of Isreal.

For us to fully understand how to pray, we will quickly highlight some of the negative implications of disobedience.

Why Obedience Is Important

The act of disobedience can hinder fulfillment of God’s blessing

One of the ways the enemy deny us from receiving the blessing of God is through the act of disobedience. The purpose of God for the life of Samson was for him to be a delivery of God’s people. However, when Samson disobeyed God by marrying from a strange land, he died with his enemy and the purpose of God for his life left unfulfilled.

Also, the children of Isreal journeyed through the wilderness for forty years simply because they refused to obey God’s instruction. The plan of God was for them to travel for forty days. Their disobedience extended the manifestation of God’s promise for their life.

It unlocks the blessing of God

As stated earlier, sometimes all we need to do is just trust and obey God and everything will fall into place. Prophet Samuel would have ended his life like one of the sons of Eli, but his act of obedience made the spirit of God come to him. Samuel was a child of fulfillment. Hannah had promised God that she will make Samuel serve God in the temple.

Samuel could have chosen to disobey God instruction and live his life to the fullest like Eli’s sons. However, he chose to serve God wholeheartedly and God made him a great prophet to the people of Isreal.

We obey God because it is our duty

We are the generation of the redeemed. Those who have been called out of darkness into the marvellous light of Christ Jesus. It is our duty to obey, trust and serve the one who has saved us by the precious blood of his son to make us kings and priests.

The scripture says it is for Freedom that Christ has set us free, so let us therefore, stand firm that we may not become slave to sin again. It is our duty to obey God so we don’t fall victim to the devil again.

  1. We had our morning devotion early this morning and the message was about obedience. After the fellowship I searched and found your platform where you taught about the Spirit.of obedience. The bane of many Christian falling or stagnation is disobedience.

    I have study the message and I have learnt a lot from it. I hope to share it with our students on Thursday morning 26/82021. And also pray the prayers as listed. I have started praying the prayers but I perceived it’s not a one-off prayers but a continued and fervent praying.

    God bless your Ministry.
