“…praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for the saints….” Ephesians 6:18 (NKJV)

In the first part of this article, we took time to discuss the importance of prayer in times of difficulty. Unfortunately, many do not take advantage of this truth; so instead of praying in times of distress, they end up worrying and getting depressed over their situation. A man in the Bible who proved to us that you can rely on prayer in difficult times was King Jehoshaphat. He was besieged by a mighty army and was outnumbered. But when he saw that he was no match for the army that had come against him, he decided to seek the Lord in prayers. The Bible records that”…Jehoshaphat feared, and set himself to seek the Lord, and proclaimed a fast throughout all Judah. So Judah gathered together to ask help from the Lord, and from all the cities of Judah they came to seek the Lord…” 2 Chronicles 20:3-4 (NKJV). 

He knew that his help could only come from the Lord so he and his people set themselves to seek the Lord in prayers and they prayed the whole day, which ultimately brought them help because by the evening of that day, God brought them a word through Jahaziel the son of Zachariah. Now, what is the lesson here? They chose to invest some time in prayers and it paid off. 

Another person who did something like this was Daniel who spent twenty-one days seeking the face of God. He invested time in prayers and got answers (Daniel 10:1-21). So what about you, what are you going to do? Stop the pity party and put aside the emotions. It is time to seek the Lord with all your heart. And guess what? You will find Him because those who seek the Lord shall find Him (Jeremiah 29:13). Praise God!


If we would pray consistently and tirelessly, there will be an answer!


Thank you heavenly father for reminding me about the importance of prayers, I declare that the spirit of prayer is at work in me, and it’s causing me to pray with all manner of prayers without getting tired or getting discouraged. Therefore, I am praying myself out of lack, debt, sickness and captivity in the name of Jesus. Amen!
