Prayer is a spiritual activity for believers which should cost us nil-agita if we allow the Holy Spirit to open our spiritual eyes on how our True Lord God Almighty operates. Our Creator is a Wonderful Father Who has not hidden His rules and order from us His faithful and dutiful children. He has weaned us from sublunary pursuits to redivivus goals centered on our Lord, Master, and Savior Jesus Christ, Who bought us with His precious Blood and has seated us with His and our Father in heaven (Ephesians 2:6). His revealed Word tells us we can know Him through constant communication with all sundry needs, requests, demands, questions, and enquiries through prayers. There are 12 types of prayers that MUST be answered by our Lord God Almighty as He disclosed in His Word that, “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us” (I John 5:14). Next week, we are going to examine in detail those 12-prayer requests that the Almighty God cannot and will never fail to answer, but this week, we want to disclose 12 types of prayers that cannot and will never be answered by the Almighty God. In fact, none of these prayers will make it to the “golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of God’s people” in the Throne of Heaven.

First, any prayer request that is not wrapped and coated with the Power and Victorious Name of our Lord, Master and Savior Jesus Christ and doxologized will be swallowed by the Dragon in the first heaven, because “God (has) exalted Him to the highest place, and gave Him the name above all names, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father” (Philippians 2:9-11). Any other name apart from the Savior is a demon-god and they too can answer prayers, but you will pay stupendous and eternal price with your soul, period! If you offer a prayer to the Throne of Heaven when you are at war, keeping malice or fighting with your spouse, you are wasting your time, because He had already warned us: “Wives, in the same way submit yourselves to your own husbands so that, if any of them do not believe the word, they may be won over without words by the behavior of their wives …Husbands, in the same way be considerate as you live with your wives and treat them with respect as the weaker partner and as heirs with you of the gracious gift of life, so that nothing will hinder your prayers” (I Peter 3: 1, 7). Three, any prayer offered by a believer with any tinge of revenge will be tossed away by the angels at the feet of the twenty-four elders, because the demon of revenge would like to attach itself to such prayer request to enter heaven he and his co-rebels have been driven away from with their chief-rebel known as Satan. This is why His Word told us matter-of-factly: “Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,” says the Lord” (Romans 12:19). So, all those fiery shouts during night vigils; “I send back to sender, “Destroy my enemies etc do not go anywhere. You and I as believers do not have power over fellow human spirits, but we have authority over demons, period! Remember, we only have one enemy: Satan!

Fourth, no prayer for money is considered worthy to be treated by the four living creatures of the Lamb. The True Lord God Almighty did not create money, so asking Him to give you what He did not create makes no sense. It is not prayer that brings money as it is being erroneously understood in Christendom. The Commandment of our Lord Jesus Christ in His Word is straight forward about money: “The LORD will open the heavens, the storehouse of his bounty, to send rain on your land in season and to bless all the work of your hands. You will lend to many nations but will borrow from none” (Deuteronomy 28:12). So, what is the work of your hand as a believer which the Almighty God can bless? It’s simple: “For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” (2 Thessalonians 3: 10). Prayers to the True Lord God Almighty does not bring money; otherwise, the billionaires of the world must be the greatest prayer warriors on the planet. Fifth, prayers suffused with these demands; food, clothing and shelter are always and will automatically be tossed away. He assured us thus: “Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? …” (Matthew 6:26-32). These three things have been guaranteed us as His Saved Children and so you do not need to be asking what He has already assured us; rather, do what He said you should do to continue to receive the three items thus: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own” (Matthew 6: 33 &34). But in the Lord’s Prayer, He taught us to ask for our daily bread. Yes, it is daily bread and not tomorrow’s bread! Eight, if you harbor ill will and bitterness including unforgiveness towards anyone, when you pray to the Lord God Almighty, the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ would drop-off the request, because while on the Cross dying in the hands of His accusers for your sins, mine and the sins of the world”, Jesus said,

“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23: 34). Consequently, “But if you do not forgive others for their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins” (Matthew 6:15; See also Mark 11:26).

The nineth type of prayer that the Dragon and demon prayer snatchers relish is from a believer in sins. This is terrible! Hear what Apostle John told us: “No one who lives in him keeps on sinning. No one who continues to sin has either seen him or known him” (I John 3:6). “Look at that fornicator, adulterer, adulteress, liar, thief, etc. the demons shout, “He or she has the audacity to call on God…” and they bring their charges against you immediately. Similarly, Apostle Paul warned in Hebrews 10:26-27: “If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth, no sacrifice for sins is left, but only a fearful expectation of judgment and of raging fire that will consume the enemies of God.” Tenth, if you have visited a native doctor, a charlatan, a mullah, a Sangoma, Babalawo, jujumam, voodoo practitioner and any of those agents of Satan with familiar spirits either in the past or now and you have forgotten to repent of this idolatrous sin and high treason, you can cry and weep from morning till night wondering why your prayers are not answered by the Lord Jesus Christ. You may even have forgotten, but spiritual and supernatural people do not forget. Hear from the Mouth of the Lord God Almighty Himself: “I will set my face against anyone who turns to mediums and spiritists to prostitute themselves by following them, and I will cut them off from their people” (Leviticus 20:6; See also Leviticus 20:27). Eleventh, if you have made a vow to the True Lord God Almighty and after that, you refuse or forgot to fulfill that vow; any subsequent prayer(s) that you offer to the Lord God Almighty will automatically drop from the Blood of the Lamb as it is coming up to the Throne Room in Heaven. This is in tandem with His Unchangeable Word in Deuteronomy 23:21; “If you make a vow to the LORD your God, do not be slow to pay it, for the LORD your God will certainly demand it of you, and you will be guilty of sin.” He repeated same in Matthew 5:33: “Again, you have heard that it was said to the ancients, ‘Do not break your oath, but fulfill your vows to the Lord.” Finally, and lastly, the compassionate gate of heaven and kindly disposition of our Father in heaven through the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ would be permanently shut off from any believer who refuses to carry out an earlier instruction or commandment of the True Lord God Almighty. Is the Lord telling you to go evangelize, witness to another soul, preach the gospel, intercede on behalf of that brother or sister, forgive that neighbor, stop fighting in the choir, desist from criticizing your pastor or what? And you refuse yet continue to pray to Him? You are a rebel! That was what got King Saul into trouble, and he ended on the wrong aisle of the eternal track. As Prophet Samuel told King Saul in I Samuel 15:23: “For rebellion is like the sin of divination, and arrogance like the evil of idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of the LORD, he has rejected you as king.”

Kwazulu-Natal, South Africa up for spiritual re-awakening

It was another nation we prepared to take The Jesus Christ Solution Centre, Texas to as handed onto us by our Hypocoristic LJC, but instead He directed us to South Africa for His Glory. And He has not and would never make a mistake as the All-Knowing Lord God, the Omnipotent, Omnipresent and Omniscient. When we arrived at the Rainbow Nation, everything became clearer. Our host Pastor, Sam Uche of Stars Revival Church of All Nations-SRCAN-gave us the low down and the Holy Spirit confirmed His earlier prophecy before we left the United States. If there is anywhere in South Africa the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ must be dished out raw in saving lives, the house of King Shaka the Zulu is ripe for harvesting. We visited the traditional homestead of the legendary African king of Stanger and through the Unction of the Holy Spirit, souls are crying for salvation. As our Lord Jesus Christ told the disciples on His Way to Sychar: “My food,” said Jesus, “is to do the will of him who sent me and to finish his work. Don’t you have a saying, ‘It’s still four months until harvest’? I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest. Even now the one who reaps draws a wage and harvests a crop for eternal life, so that the sower and the reaper may be glad together” (John 4:36-37). So it is now with Stanger.

If you live in Stanger, Kwazulu-Natal Province, South Africa and want to worship at a living church, a Holy Spirit-led, Word-based and Christ-focused Church and you love souls as our Lord, Master, and Savior Jesus Christ, direct them to Stars Revival Church of All Nations-SRCAN- at 3, Bauhimia Road, Unit 3A, Industrial Area, KwaDukuzza, Stanger, South Africa. Tel: 061 251 0544, 065 832 9775 (WhatsApp).

Stanger, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa is indeed ripe for harvest and may the True Lord God Almighty use us and continue to use Brother Uche to win souls in South Africa and beyond for His Utmost in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
