He said to them, “This is what I told you while I was still with you: Everything must be fulfilled that is written about me in the Law of Moses, the Prophets and the Psalms.” -Luke 24:44

They shall die of deadly diseases. They shall not be lamented, nor shall they be buried; they shall be as dung on the surface of the ground. They shall perish by the sword and by famine, and their dead bodies shall be food for the birds of the air and for the beasts of the earth.

5 “For thus says the Lord: Do not enter the house of mourning, or go to lament, or bemoan them; for I have taken away my peace from this people, says the Lord, my steadfast love and mercy. 6 Both great and small shall die in this land; they shall not be buried, and no one shall lament for them or cut himself or make himself bald for them. 7 No one shall break bread for the mourner, to comfort him for the dead; nor shall any one give him the cup of consolation to drink for his father or his mother. 8 You shall not go into the house of feasting to sit with them, to eat and drink. 9 For thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will make to cease from this place, before your eyes and in your days, the voice of mirth and the voice of gladness, the voice of the bridegroom and the voice of the bride. -Jeremiah 16:4-9

The above extract from the Gospel is a message of courage,faith and hope in the Lord because by now we are sure that everything is happening as has been prophesied.

Hence we can be sure of our prayers being answered ,the prayers offered to the living God cannot go in vain.It’s also a reminder for all those who do not believe in the power of prayers .

If you haven’t prayed then please pray because prayers are the soothing showers of blessings ,prayers are our shield against the deadly dagger of the Satan and all that is evil .

Pray for the good of everyone because the Lord is a loving father of all ,he won’t be able to tolerate a curse for any child of his because we realize the real power of the Lord in our weaknesses and failures.So whatever is failure to us is the manifestation of God’s grace,mercy,kindness,love and power.

Thank you very much.Take care.

  2. Amen Francis! Prayers are powerful along with praise to the Most High because He inhabits the praises of His people, and wherever two or more are gathered in His name, there He is in the midst of them. This is a double and powerful confirmation.

    Memorizing scripture is also a key to spiritual warfare; they are as arrows in our quiver….and as the title of your message speaks Truth, Isaiah 55:11 confirms it, as it states, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. Thank you this reminder of how important and powerful prayer is. God bless, Susan

      1. The Holy Spirit directed my prayer for strength then! And I’ve been on the couch two days, in a weakened state. Weak is good.
