Pastor Oyindamola Soderu has urged believers to constantly meditate on the character of God for more meaningful prayers. She also admonished believers to be detailed in the place of prayers for a personal revelation of God.
She said this while ministering at the August 4 Thursday Showers, which she tagged a reward service.
“Do all your acts of service in the house of God as unto the Lord, for God is your exceeding great reward,” she said at The Fountain of Life Church (TFOLC) headquarters in Ilupeju, Lagos State.
The minister revealed that one of the reasons believers ought to remain fervent in the prayers is because God is never tired of hearing them, adding that they should never judge God based on facts or the world’s standards.
She noted that Christians should not grow weary in prayers, for no one could tell when the eve of breakthrough would come.
Pastor Soderu posited: “If we constantly meditate on the character of who we are praying to, prayer will become meaningful to us.”
Citing Psalm 107:1, Psalm 71:22, Psalm 89:14, 1 Corinthians 1:9, Psalm 18:30, 1 John 1:5, 1 John 4:16, Psalm 11:7, 2 Samuel 22:27, John 4:24, Isaiah 9:6; she expounded on the character of God. According to her, God is good, holy, just, faithful, perfect, light, love, righteous, pure, the unchangeable Changer, the Truth, and the Prince of peace.
She reminded believers that God does not need any comparison for Him to be God, for He is God all by Himself.
“To connect to our reward, the Bible demands that we acknowledge God is good. Reminding ourselves about the characteristics of God allows us to stay rooted in faith,” she said, adding, “If you can think or talk about a problem, then you can pray about it.”
The preacher then advised Christians to continually meditate on the goodness of God and never worry about life’s issues but take such battles to God in prayer. Finally, she told them not to lose hope like the world does but always stay in faith based on the word of God.
“We should confess positively always that we are proof of grace. But you also need to take authority over your thought patterns and plant the word of God in your heart,” she told the congregation.
