You cannot afford not to include prayer in your lifestyle especially if you are from this part of the world where there are many spiritual forces that does not want you to excel. Some of these forces can be family members and they can be friends or people around you that just hate your success, especially when they see that your future is glorious. Therefore, you cannot afford to live a prayer-less life.
In case you are living a prayer-less life, let me tell you reasons why you need to see prayer as your number one key to a successful future.
a) Devil himself does not want you to enter into your future. Have you not been seeing the way young people are killing themselves these days, both home and abroad? It is the devil at work, making young people to kill themselves over nothing, and some times over trivial issues, that does not worth it. May God never allow us to be a victim of such wickedness in Jesus’ name.
b) Some wicked forces that do not want you to succeed. Like I said earlier, some of them can be from your household, some can be from your peers, and sometimes some parents have sown evil seed that will affect the future of their children in one way or the other.
c) Some bad habits are capable of ruining one’s future. Every man has one or two or more habits to deal with, and most times it takes the help of God through prayer to destroy such habits. Just look deep into your life, name those bad habits that can affect you and begin to table them in prayer before God before they hinder your future from becoming a reality.
Here are some issues you need to put in prayers often
ü Pray for divine protection
ü Pray against generational curses, iniquities and wickedness. Some families are extremely evil; they rarely allow their offspring succeed in life.
ü Pray against bad influence.
ü Pray for direction. Everyone needs direction in life. As per what course to study, whom to marry, what business to do, etc. it is better to be directed by God because you are assured of his protection and provisions when He leads you.
