Wisdom For The Day Devotional 29 April 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo ~ Be Audacious In Prayers
TOPIC: Be Audacious In Prayers (TREM Devotional 29 April 2022)
“Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead man was lying. And Jesus lifted his eyes and said, “Father, I thank You that You have heard Me”. John 11:41 (NKJV)
Wisdom For The Day MESSAGE:
Today, I want to encourage you to come boldly to the throne of grace and obtain mercy. God is your Father and you have His approval because of Jesus. And so, you can make bold demands and expect a response from heaven. That is what the finished work of Jesus has done for you, and me. Our text is the prayer Jesus prayed at the tomb of Lazarus who had been dead for four days. The situation was daunting, but Jesus wasn’t perturbed, He said “I thank You that You have heard Me.” That was a bold statement! He knew that Lazarus had no other choice but to come forth because the Father already heard His prayers.
When you know that your prayers are not to beg God, not to arm-twist Him, or to change His mind, it changes the way you pray. That is why praying scriptures are vitally important because, in praying scriptures, you are taking God’s Word back to Him. The Bible says the barren shall keep house and be joyful mothers of children. The Word God says that you are the head and not the tail. The Word says no weapon formed against you shall prosper. The Word says I will bless your bread and your water and take away sickness from your midst. The Word says if you lack wisdom ask of God and He will give it to you freely. In prayers, get into the scriptures and take God’s word back to Him and watch Him flex His muscles on your behalf. The scriptures give you a holy audacity in prayers.
I believe God with you that this season will not pass you by. Your ground will produce, and the earth will yield a great harvest for you. In whatever area the enemy is raising his ugly head against you, today I present the blood that was shed to condemn him to eternal defeat. And I command the enemy to loose his hold over your life.

I am strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. For God has not given me the spirit of fear but He has given me the Spirit of love, power and a sound mind. The peace of God rules in my heart and the word of Christ dwells in me richly in all wisdom. I have the mind of Christ. I am more than a conqueror for greater is He that is in me than he that is in the world. I am the light of the world and the salt of the earth (Eph. 6:10; 2 Tim 1:7; Col. 3:15-16; 1 Cor 2:16; Rom 8:37; 1 John 4:4; Matt 5:13-14).
Every day, and in every way, I am getting better: spiritually, physically, financially, mentally, morally, and in all my endeavors.
I am called for a purpose. I will fulfill this purpose and I will arrive at God’s ordained destiny for my life. Nothing will cut me short. I will make a formidable impact in my world for the Kingdom.
