TOPIC: Dedication To Prayer And The Word Of God
SCRIPTURE: But we will give ourselves continually to prayer, and to the ministry of the word. Acts 6:4
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The degree of one’s dedication to God is directly proportional to the health of his prayer and word life.
Prayer and the Word of God are two major ingredients that enhance the lifestyle of dedication to God. The degree of one’s dedication to God is directly proportional to the health of his prayer and Word life.
Throughout Scriptures, it is very clear that dedicated people are people of prayer and the Word of God. Dedicated men and women are men and women who are addicted to prayer and the Word of God. In other words, the practice of prayer and the study of the Word of God are evidences of dedication and devotion to God.
To a child of God, the ministry of Prayer and the Word of God are likened to the two legs of a person. In the realm of the spirit, one of your legs as a Christian must stand on prayer while the second leg must stand on the Word of God.
The ministry of Prayer and the Word of God is like the combination of dynamite and detonator; the kind of explosion you see physically when a dynamite and detonator are combined is what a person experiences in the spiritual realm when prayer is offered abundantly and the Word of God is studied voraciously.
To throw more light, the practice of prayer and the Word is also likened to the combination of weapon and ammunition. When you combine the ministry of prayer and the Word of God effectively, its effect in the realm of the spirit is as powerful as the effect of the combination of weapon and ammunition that releases bullets, explosives and missiles. The impact of prayer and the Word of God can dislodge and destroy the power of darkness. So, the practice of prayer and the study of the word must be combined together for a person to be an outstanding Christian and Kingdom star.
Remember this: The degree of one’s dedication to God is directly proportional to the health of his prayer and word life.
- Prioritize the practice of prayer and the study of the Word.
- Pray and study the Word consistently.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace and discipline to pray effectively and study Your Word voraciously. Help me Lord in Jesus’ Name.

QUOTE: It is a foolish thing to do, for you to spend many days in fasting and prayer, live a worship life, study the Word, etc. and all of a sudden God’s power comes upon you in such a great dimension that signs and wonders follow you and devils are cast out, then you stop fasting, praying, worshipping, and studying the Word. Culled from “21 FOOLISH THINGS PEOPLE DO” by Dr Paul Enenche.
DAILY BIBLE READING: Exodus 26-30.
REFLECTION: Prayer, to a child of God, is like breathing. And the Word of God is like food. When a person stops eating, and stops breathing, death is inevitable. Spiritual death happens when prayer and the Word are ignored.
PROPHETIC WORD/DECLARATION: The Fresh grace for prayer and Word study is released on you in Jesus’ Name.
