Mr. Githuku wa Muirani Responds To “Prayer Challenge”
Those who are Christians and believe that Jesus Christ was and is son of God,believes that by praying to our creator, we do communicate with him and we can submit freely all our needs and desires to him and him only. When things goes wrong in any country, we do tend to blame the government but in the real sense its we as Christians who have failed in our duties to pray for the governments. Here in Sweden, we are told that, whenever you are in trouble, call 112.
Even young children in schools knows about 112. For us Christians, God’s hot line is Jeremiah 33:3-“Call to me and i will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know” Our key to victory is “Chronicles 7:14-“if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and forgive their sin and will heal their land”. Why do we pray?
Isaiah 54:17-“no weapon forged against you will prevail, and you will refute every tongue that accuses you. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and this is their vindication from me, declares the LORD.”
What prayers does: Gen. 25:21-“Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was barren.The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebbecca became pregnant”. 2Kings 6:18-” As the enemy came down toward him, Elisha prayed to the LORD, “Strike these people with blindness”. So he struck them with blindness, as Elisha had asked” Read also 2Kings 20. Prayer gives direction: Jeremiah 42:3-“Pray that the LORD your God Will tell us where we should go and what we should do”.
Mark 11:23-” I tell you the truth, if anyone says to this mountain, ” Go, throw yourself into the sea”, and does not doubt in his heart but believes that what he/she says will happen, it will be done for him/her”. James 5:13- “Is any one of you in trouble? He/she should pray.Is anyone happy? Let him/her sing songs of praise”. why should we call God? Psalm 145:18-” The LORD is near to all who call on him. to all who call on him in truth”. Psalm 50:15-” and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me”.
Psalm 56:9-” Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help, By this I know that God is for me”. Psalm 25:14-“The LORD confides in those who fear him; he makes his covenant known to them”. Prayer frustrates our enemies. Micah 7:7-8-“But for me, I watch in hope for the LORD, I wait for God my Savior; my God will hear me. Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness, the LORD will be my light”.
God is doing a new thing in Kenya and to the Kenyan people. He will hear our cry and he will answer our prayers for peace and stability in our country.Its through prayer that we do communicate with God and let us all Christians joins together and may the name of our Almighty LORD reign supreme all the times. Amen!
