Pray & Prophesy
Acts 9:40 HCSB
“Then Peter sent them all out of the room. He knelt down, prayed, and turning toward the body said, “Tabitha, get up! ” She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up.”
God is thinking about us and planning a beautiful ending for whatever we are going through. He is preparing greatness in store for us.
The only way we can experience what God has prepared for us is by living a lifestyle of prayer, seeking His presence and Let Him know that we are serious about everything that He planned for our life.
So often we live ignorant of what He is doing in our lives, thinking everything will fall its place automatically and we undervalue the importance of prayer.
When we die in our relationship with God, or our prayer dies, technically the Spirit man withers away. The Bible says man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from God’s mouth.
You get to hear God’s desire only when you talk to Him.
Throughout the Bible there are several stories about God raising dead people back to life.
Acts 9:40 – “Then Peter sent them all out of the room. He knelt down, prayed, and turning toward the body said, “Tabitha, get up! ” She opened her eyes, saw Peter, and sat up.”
First thing Peter did was disconnect every person who believed the child was dead. Jesus did the same thing, when He had to raise somebody from the dead. He knew that as long as there were other people who wanted the girl to remain dead, he could not bring her back to life.
So let’s acknowledge in our season, all those people or things that want to disconnect us from God, We have to get them out of our lives. They may be our job, movies, music, people, things etc that want to keep us in a spiritual death.
Next what Peter did is knelt and prayed and said, Tabitha get up. Before he could release that prophetic declaration, he knelt down and prayed. Immediately she saw Peter and sat up.
So once we disconnect from the things that want to separate us from God, we need to get on our knees and begin to pray, have communion with God and get back into intimacy with God.
The authority to make prophetic declaration into our future and to speak life into the dead situations comes from a place of intimacy and deep conversation with God.
