           Prayer of Agreement               Again I say to you, that if two of you agree on earth about anything that they     may ask, it shall be done for them           by my Father who is in heaven.                      (Matthew 18:19)                                                                 ________________________________                                                                                                                          A Prayer for Prosperity                                                                           Father, I come to You, in the name of Jesus, concerning my financial situation. You are a very present help in trouble, and You are more than enough. Your Word declares that You shall supply all my needs. Lord of hosts, You said, “Try Me now in this, and I will open the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.” You will rebuke the devourer for my sake. My heart is filled with thanksgiving. Lord, my God, I shall remember that it is You Who gives me the power to get wealth, that You may establish Your covenant. In the name of Jesus, I worship You only, and I will have no other gods before me. You are able to make all grace—every favor and earthly blessing—come to me in abundance, so that I am always, and in all circumstances, furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation according to Your riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (If you have not been giving tithes and offerings, include this statement of repentance in your prayer.) Forgive me for robbing You in tithes and offerings. I repent and purpose to bring all my tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in Your house. Thank You for wise financial counselors and teachers who are teaching me the principles of good stewardship. Amen, and so be it.                                
Question of the Week                                                                                   Is it acceptable to repeatedly pray                               for the same thing?                                                                                          In Luke 18:1-7, Jesus uses a parable to illustrate the importance of persevering in prayer. He tells the story of a widow who came to an unjust judge seeking justice against her adversary. Because of her persistence in prayer, the judge relented. Jesus’ point is that if an unjust judge will grant the petition of someone who perseveres in a request for justice, how much more will the God who loves us, “His chosen ones,” (v.7) answer our prayer when we keep praying? Jesus gives another illustration of prayer in Luke 11:5-12. Similar to the parable of the unjust judge, Jesus’ message in this passage is that if a man will inconvenience himself to provide for a needy friend, God will provide for our needs far more, since no request is an inconvenience to Him. Both of these passages encourage us to pray and to keep praying. There is nothing wrong with repeatedly asking for the same thing. As long as what you are praying for is within the will of God, keep asking until God grants your request or removes the desire from your heart. Sometimes God forces us to wait for an answer to our prayers in order to teach us patience and perseverance. Sometimes we ask for something when granting it is not yet in God's timing for our lives. Sometimes we ask for something that is not God's will for us, and He says “no.” Keep on asking, keep on knocking, and keep on seeking until God grants your request or convinces you that your request is not His will for you.
