We’ll start the engines today by looking at a popular scripture the book of Luke 6:38
Give and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” NKJ
Please take these 2 prayer points with fire in your spirit:
o I retrieve all my properties from satanic banks in the name of Jesus
o O Lord restore seven-fold everything I have lost as a result of spiritual ignorance.
The Bishop and the Vision
I know a bishop who wanted to build a 50,000 seat worship hall in 1999. The unusual thing about it was… he expected to do it from start to finish without borrowing a dime from anyone… not even from the bank.
He also set a target of 12 months for completion.
Now this kind of project had never before been undertaken by anyone in his part of the world. So everyone watched with interest… expecting him to fail.
Well he did not just succeed… he succeeded brilliantly.
The entire project, which took the size of 4 football fields, was completed in 11 months – one month ahead of schedule!
And this happened in a place, a geography where as much as 90% of the people were living far below the poverty line.
He has since made further progress and established a full-fledged university there.
Such “impossible” feats excite me… so I decided to dig a little into the background of this bishop to learn how he did it.
Here’s a few of the interesting facts I uncovered:
o This man of God is a chronic, incurable giver. He has been that way for 30 years. There’s a story of how he gave away the only money his wife had reserved to buy baby food for their 6-month-old infant… to a church member who had an urgent financial need!
o Half of that time (30 years) he and his family were living in abject poverty… and he kept right on giving.
o Before his ministry exploded in signs and wonders he was fasting every day for 3 years (yes, you read that right).
o His might just be one of the longest dining tables around – it’s designed to sit at least 40 people at a time. And at least 40 people have lunch in his home every single day … as we speak.
That’s right. This man lives and breathes the well-known message we’ve all heard, “You can’t out-give God.”
What sets him apart however is that he doesn’t just stop there.
He takes things to the next level… and herein lies a deep secret.
The Next Level
He creates relationships… with people big and small, poor and rich, young and old.
He believes that essentially all relationships in life act like “arteries” or pipelines in the spiritual realm.
For instance when God blesses you He usually does it through someone. The relationship with that person is really the pipeline through which the blessings come to you.
Relationships are the key to everything!
No wonder the Lord Jesus said we should do unto others as we want them to do to us.
When they asked Him (Jesus) about the greatest commandment in the book He gave them two:
The first is about relationship… with God
The second is about relationship … with people
Please pay close attention here:
All your relationships are pipelines through which God will use to bless you.
But a blockage can occur in a relationship.
For instance a blockage can occur in a marriage relationship. When this particular artery is blocked, love and passion can no longer flow between a husband and wife.
Call it a heart attack, or a death in a marriage.
Your various business relationships are also arteries… connecting employers and employees, bosses and staff, sellers and buyers.
The money that flows to you through your business transactions or the work you do travels through these arteries.
When they are clogged… then money fails to flow to you.
In many cases severe blockages might also transfer into the physical arteries of the body… resulting in physical illness.
All the relationships between people, between business partners, between husband and wife, between brother and sister, between parents and children – are spiritual arteries that can become blocked and cause “disease.”
Each time you interact with someone in your life – friend or stranger, family member, fellow worker – please remember that you are affecting the arteries in your life that extends out into the world… the exact same pipelines that blessings will flow through to you.
If you fail to watch over the relationships in your life… and allow blockages to continue to grow unchecked… “disease” might set in.
This disease can manifest itself as:
Kids on drugs
A dysfunctional family
Or even a heart attack
Any of these can happen –
– in spite of your praying
– in spite of your giving
If you do everything else right but allow blockages in your relationships your miracles may not manifest speedily enough.
At this level please close your eyes and take these prayers with a holy cry unto the Lord:
o Fire of God burn away every blockage in my spiritual pipes in the name of Jesus
o Every power creating relationship problems in my life, be buried be buried be buried in the mighty name of Jesus.
o Anything in my life scaring away my divine helpers, get out now in the name of Jesus.
You now understand why the Bible warns us about things like anger, evil communication, gossip, hatred, envy, bitterness, unforgiveness, jealousy, etc.?
It is for our own good!
Letting go of anger, revenge, envy, worry, fear, etc. and working earnestly to build sound relationships is a crucial secret to getting your desires to flow into your life… day in day out.
If you are serious about praying to get out of debt, you will have to watch what you say about others… and how you react when others say terrible things about you.
And remember what I’ve said here:
o Create relationships and build bridges of understanding with folks you meet everyday.
o Give of your substance… and your time – be generous, so the channels can open and stay open.
Now here are the rest of the prayers to get out of debt.
o O Lord send me divine counselors who can help me with my finances
o Father, show me what to do so that financial crisis would not arise again in my business in the name of Jesus.
o Father, help me to formulate a plan of recovery to get me out of debt in Jesus’ name.
o Lord, give me wisdom to avoid unfavorable business situations in the name of Jesus.
o Lord, help me to erect safeguards to prevent financial failure.
o O Lord, create new and profitable opportunities for me.
o I refuse to be a borrower. I shall lend to many nations in the name of Jesus.
o I bind every spirit of impulse buying and worthless acquisitions in Jesus’ name
o Every spirit of greed operating in my life I bind and cast you out in the name of Jesus.
o All my money that has been siphoned away spiritually be restored to me 7-fold in the name of Jesus.
o Every power delaying my miracles be paralyzed in the name of Jesus.
o Anything in the spirit realm casting an evil eye on my life, receive total blindness in the name of Jesus.
o O Lord, begin to use those around me to bless me in a powerful new way in Jesus’ name.
