Apostle Grace Lubega
Mark 7:13 (KJV); Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
The reason why some believers do not have the results of praying people is that they are trapped in the traditions of prayer and not the revelation of prayer.
Tradition is anything that is done without the revelation of the Word of God pertaining to why you do that thing.
Prayer has traditions too. Unfortunately, wherever tradition is, the power of God is rendered inoperative.
Praying at a particular hour of the night because you believe that is when the powers of darkness are strongest is a tradition in prayer.
There are people who carry around books with specific kinds of prayers for different situations in their lives: prayers to make when one is sick; prayers to make when one is depressed; prayers to make when one needs financial breakthrough etc. These are traditions in prayer.
To imagine that proximity to the person you are praying for is what brings the answer is also a tradition in prayer. Jesus Christ healed men He did not meet physically simply by sending a word.
You must examine your life of prayer and question the things you do, for they may be traditions and the reason why you have failed to receive answers to prayer.
Because we pray to a God of revelation, our prayer too must be in revelation.

GOLDEN NUGGET: You must examine your life of prayer and question the things you do, for they may be traditions and the reason why you have failed to receive answers to prayer. Because we pray to a God of revelation, our prayer too must be in revelation.
PRAYER: My Loving Father, I am eternally grateful for this knowledge. I thank You for the priceless gift of Your Word which is the basis of all that I do. You have given to me the Spirit of revelation and the eyes of my understanding have been flooded with light. It is this experience that defines my life of prayer. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
