Apostle Grace Lubega
Luke 18:1(KJV); And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Prayer is a revelation.
In my life of ministry, I have encountered men and women who spend countless hours in prayer but they do not have the results to show for those hours because they do not understand that prayer is a revelation.
As a student of the Spirit who seeks to understand prayer, you must walk in this truth.
There is prayer driven by need. In this place of prayer, people are primarily consumed by the things they seek from God.
There is another place of prayer driven by the convictions of worship and adoration. This is a place in which one’s prayer life is consumed by the sense of awe and adoration for the person of God, expressed through songs of praise and exaltation.
Another place in prayer is one in which men sit with God. This place is beyond need; you don’t even have to worship because God doesn’t need your worship. In this place of prayer, silence is louder than words.
These places of prayer have their own level of the manifestation of the presence of God. Some people are fervent in prayer yet at the level of need; such a man cannot have the same results as he who is fervent at the level of sitting and reasoning together with God.
Today, I urge you to embrace prayer as a revelation and not merely as a duty. Seek to grow past the place of need. Pursue fervency in the place of reasoning with God. Your life will change.
