Prayer has been identified as the bridge and platform whereby diverse supernatural transactions take place. Pastor Kunle Areogun made this clarification at the September 29 first service when he spoke on, ‘The Divinely Assisted Life’.
Emphasising on the need for Christians to lead a prayerful life, he noted that though we operate in covenant, we have our part to play as God is not a magician. “For example, if God helped you get a scholarship overseas, you will still need to get a visa and buy your ticket to the country…” .
Pastor Kunle further highlighted some reasons why Christians must pray such as; getting the ‘extra’ factor of God in one’s affairs, for God revelation of what is not ordinarily known to man, to be a tool in His hand, to secure the resources of heaven for the journey of life and to avoid the traps and temptations of the devil.
Using the example of King Uzziah who was crowned at 16, he noted that the king did exploits as long as he sought God, but fell when he began to disregard God, thus warning us not to lose sight of where we started off with God. “When God starts blessing you, don’t stop coming to prayer meeting!”
He further urged us not to relent in seeking and pursuing God, so that we can continuously get the results and always to be in the place where God will see us, the place of prayer.
