Today’s Message: Unhindered Prayers

Headlines Today's Message: Unhindered Prayers

TODAY’S SCRIPTURE

“…Treat her as you should so your prayers will not be hindered.”
(1 Peter 3:7, NLT)

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria

Did you know that the way you treat people has an impact on the effectiveness of your prayers? The Bible says that the prayer of the righteous person is powerful. But if we aren’t treating others with honor, kindness and respect, then we aren’t allowing His righteousness to operate in us.

When we don’t treat others the way we should, it closes the door to God’s power and hinders our prayers.

This is especially true in a marriage relationship. Marriage isn’t just an agreement between two people to live life together. Marriage is a God-ordained institution that helps us understand love and unity. When two people are married, they become one physically, spiritually and emotionally.

This particular passage is directed toward husbands, but it applies to all believers as well. We should all treat others “with understanding,” which means considering the needs of others above our own. We should always aim to treat others with kindness, dignity, and respect and quickly choose forgiveness.

The Bible says that the way we treat others is the way we treat God. So choose love and treat others with respect so that your prayers will not be hindered!

A PRAYER FOR TODAY

Father, teach me to live in Your ways. Help me to always treat others with love and respect, which shows that I honor You. Show me how to be a blessing to others so that my prayers will be effective in Jesus’ name. Amen.

— Joel & Victoria Osteen

  1. Heavenly Father have mercy on me your sinful servant and let you will prevail in Christ Jesus my personal Lord and saviour Amen.

  2. “I would never want to be the member of a group whose symbol was a guy nailed to two pieces of wood.”

    – George Carlin

  3. Remember that religions and cults maintain that they alone are the one true faith and all the others are just heretics.

  4. “We must give up that silly idea of folding our hands and waiting upon God to do everything for us. If God intended that, He would not have given us a mind, He would not have given us intelligence, He would not have given us his soul, He would not have placed us here in the midst of creation, and surrounded us with all the beautiful things of nature. What so ever you want in life you must make your mind to do it for yourself and accomplish it for yourself whether it is rearing a home, expanding an empire, if you want to do it you must do it for yourself and then God will bless the effort because he will realise that you are using your intelligence for the BEST.”
    Marcus Garvey

    Think think, thinking is not illegal.

    Wake up from your docility and study about self!!

  5. If we go back to the beginning we shall find that ignorance and fear created the gods; that fancy, enthusiasm, or deceit adorned or disfigured them; that weakness worships them; that credulity preserves them, and that custom, respect and tyranny support them in order to make the blindness of men serve its own interests.
    — Baron d’Holbach, The System of Nature

  6. ….in the head or an imaginary deity residing in some magical place no one can see. Religious beliefs should be placed in the same class as mental sickness or any other serious psychological disorder that degrades the quality of life and the individual’s ability to deal with reality.

    One of the fundamental (but understandable) flaws with modern psychology is its assumption that sanity is defined using the mental character of the majority as a benchmark. But this standard isn’t really objective, it’s subjective and merely based on a relational comparison that’s used incorrectly to define an aberrant standard for mental health. Just because many people believe in something that doesn’t make it valid, and just because a lie is repeated a billion times that doesn’t make it any more…

  7. Brothers and sisters, can you guess the great name of our AFRIKAN BLOOD great Afrikan leader of the post-colonial era, murdered, had the same name as an Egyptian pharaoh of the 11th dynasty? their original name means “the energy of the sun gives life.”

    Answer: Thomas Sankara and the Pharaoh Shankara Muntuhotep. The name comes precisely Se-ankh-ka-ra. Ankh = Life, ka = energy, Ra = sun. So Sankara / Sankharé / Sangharé means “The energy of the sun gives life.”

    Let’s take back Sunday and use it for community building and teaching our children and ourselves about self and Afrikan consciousness instead of wasting the day being indoctrinated with a self destructive religion. Our children need to know they are descendants of Great kings and Queens.

    Wake up from your folly…

    • Belief is not a choice. Most Zambians believe they are Christians not because they understand Christianity and want to be, but because it has been forced on them. Chiluba started this crap!

      What do you have now?

      A country full of hypocrites.

      Check this outu: If indeed Zambia is a Christian Nation and everyone who professes to be a child of god is saved, then where do all the crooks and corrupt panga wielding pompwes come from?

      Every cabonet meeting is opened with an invocation. The moment eyes are open, everyone becomes devilish, stealing, scheming, lying, cheating, intimidating, etc.

      What happened to the power of prayer? I dare ask.

  8. “As to the book called the Bible, it is blasphemy to call it the word of God. It is a book of lies and contradictions, and a history of bad times and bad men. There are but a few good characters in the whole book.” — Thomas Paine
