Topic: Your Prayer and Your Future
SCRIPTURE: And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed. – Genesis 32:28
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Prayer does not only affect the moment, it also affects the future.
Prayer is one of the strongest forces on earth with the capacity to make lasting generational impact in a person’s life and destiny. It is important to note that prayer does not only affect the moment, it also affects the future.
Prayer is the only tool that can deal with history and the present. It also has the ability to rearrange destiny.
Now, let us look at the generational impact of prayer in the life of Jacob.
Prayer broke the generational curse on the life of Jacob. Although there were many curses in Jacob’s lineage, our focus will be on one: barrenness.
The word, barrenness, was first used in the Bible in connection with Sarah who was Jacob’s grandmother. This is evident in Genesis 11:30: But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
The second time barrenness was mentioned in the Scripture was with Sarah’s daughter-in-law, Jacob’s mother, Rebecca, who was also barren (Genesis 25:21). It was also recorded that Jacob’s two wives were barren (Genesis 29:31). But Jacob decided to end the curse of barrenness at the place of prayer. And subsequently, barrenness was no longer mentioned in his lineage.
As you give yourself to prayer, I prophesy the termination of every generational curse in your life, in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: Prayer does not only affect the moment, it also affects the future.
1. Have a consistent prayer schedule.
2. Pray Word-based prayers.
3. Identify any negative cycle around your life and attack it at the place of prayer.
