Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord had given for you today is from the book of 1Thessalonians 5:16-18, ”Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you”.
When we go through tribulation the only tool that will help us to overcome our battle is Prayer. In the Bible we read in James 5:16 “The effective and fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much”.
Likewise King Hezekiah prayed and God heard his cry and extended the years of his life. Isaiah 38:5 says, “I have heard your prayer, I have seen your tears, I will add to your days, fifteen years”.
Once a Couple visited me to pray for their son’s life. They were actually quarrelling between themselves over their son. They had invested a huge amount for the business that their son was doing. Crores of rupees were given to him but he could not run the business successfully. He had borrowed money to run the business and thus his debt increased. Their son had come to a point where he could not repay to the people who had lent him.
He had approached his father for help. But he was not in a position to help. Then the son approached his mother and she interceded with his father to help him. The mother insisted to sell their house to help their son. The father was moved by her wife’s love for their son and decided to sell the house. It was at this time of struggle that they approached me for counselling. All that they had was only a house as their property.
I was moved with compassion for this family and pleaded unto God. I asked the Lord “Is it necessary for them to sell this house to clear their debt? Lord even without selling the house you can help them to clear their debts. It is an easy thing for you”. The Lord replied me saying, they need not sell their house. Meanwhile their son wrote to his friend in the US regarding his down fall in business and about his debts. He told his friend that he wishes to work abroad and requested his friend to look out for a job. His friend was the recruiting officer in his company. To his surprise he got a job in the US with a salary of Rs.3,50,000/-.
This was a real miracle to them. The son went abroad and worked and sent his salary to his father regularly to pay back the dues he had to pay month on month. Father started repaying the debtors. In the meanwhile those who lent him money said that he was a good person and had paid the interest correctly and therefore they said that he need not pay the interest anymore but only return the principal amount.
When God descends, such miracles will happen. To obtain such miracles, you need to pray. Prayer breaks all the barriers and obstacles in your life. Prayer changes things in life. Even today, you might also be stuck in such a problem with debts over your head. God is telling you not to lose hope. Just pray and ask God to open a new way. He will open a way and lead you through it successfully.
God bless you.
Our loving heavenly Father, we thank you for this blessed day. I thank You for answering the prayers of Your children and restoring all that they lost in life. I thank you for breaking all the barriers and liberating them from all problems. May You help them to pray without ceasing. Open new ways for them to clear their debts and lead a peaceful life. In Jesus name we pray,
