Fervent prayers are important and relevant for your dominion and manifestation on the earth. Sadly, most Christians are abandoning the platform of fervent prayers today.

The circumstances around our world today are intimidating. But the truth is that God is mightily able to help us overcome these circumstances and situations.

Fervent prayers and God’s reaction

God will always react accordingly to the fervent prayers of His children. He commanded us to pray in the first place so He will always listen to us and also give answers to our prayers.

We can’t walk in dominion on the earth if we are not prayerful. Effective and persistent prayers always go a long way to bring down obstacles and hindrances.

Biblical illustration of fervent prayers

When God reacts, the earth will surely react and your heaven will surely open. But it has to start with what you do or don’t do. The biblical illustration below will show you what I mean shortly.

Most times, God will not react to cause the reaction of the earth and for your heaven to open until you cry unto the LORD in prayer.

David, after God gave him victory over King Saul, saw by revelation, how this process worked out before he got the much-needed victory.

Read his experience below:

Psalms 18:6-7
[6]In my distress I called upon the Lord, And cried out to my God; He heard my voice from His temple, And my cry came before Him, even to His ears.
[7]Then the earth shook and trembled; The foundations of the hills also quaked and were shaken, Because He was angry.

Praying fervently in distress

In his distress, he cried in prayer to the LORD and the Lord got angry, the earth also got angry and shook, then David’s victory was handed over to him.

There is so much the prayer of the righteous can do; it avails much. It produces reactions from heaven and the earth.

I hope you will embrace again the platform of fervent prayer said with absolute trust in God if you have abandoned it.
