PRAY UNTIL SOMETHING HAPPENS

At some point in our lives, we come to that mountain that seems to defy all odds, in our different capacities we do all we can to overcome or surmount the problem, but it just wouldn’t budge, the mountains come in different forms; financial incapacitation, marital distress, blackmail, joblessness, betrayal, loss of a loved one, business failure, marital delay, false accusation, abandonment, loneliness, etc (I will deliberately leave out the current Economic recession); we engage in a long rigmarole of meaningless exercises which most often than not end in futility, all in a bid to break free from the chains.

Lately, there has been an increase in suicidal attempts in the country, I laugh at so many people here on this forum calling them cowards, I think to myself “just pray you don’t get to that point in your life”,

Our abilities to deal with a given problem are different, we are all born with different default temperaments or dispositions, that is why you see two people suffer the same tragedy, one laughs and moves on giving little or no thought, the other broods over the problem for weeks until it gives birth to depression and consequently….. (You are also free to use MMM crash as a case study)

Now, what if I told you that no matter what you may be going through, no matter the depth you find yourself in that problem, there is a way out, am not talking about half way solutions, or “how I for do?” kind of solution, I am talking about solution given according to your wish, the best part is that it’s all going to take place here on Nairaland, and if you follow me through this program, you will give your praise report here also.

This program is called P.U.S.H (Pray Until Something Happens)

I am giving you one hundred percent assurance that there is nothing impossible for God to do, so even if you are at your wits end, just hold on, the best part is I am also participating.

Warning- this program entails a lot of fasting and midnight prayers, so put on your shoes, and get ready to lose weight, for those who love food so much and think they cannot fast, well maybe you are not tired of your situation, if you are, nobody will tell you to get up and fast.
Today reduce the amount of food you eat drastically, this process of preparing the body will take two to three days, depending on the individual, this is to acquaint you with what is ahead, for those who smoke, please cut down on your cigarette intake, I will not tell you to stop at once because I know that may not be practical (but as time goes on, the Holy Spirit will help you to stop) so do not bother yourself.

Start preparing your mind for the days ahead, because in the beginning of the fast you will experience pain, but remember no pain, no gain.
Tonight meditate on Psalm 51, psalm 86, 1jn4v9&10, 1jn1v9 these are basically verses dealing with repentance which is where we will start from. Read these and any other as the Holy Spirit leads.

See you guys later.

@delighttessy and lepasharon thanks for dropping by, I really hope you participate, any questions I would be more than happy to answer,
So here we are, Day two; No claims being made here about performing miracles, I just want others to benefit from the principles of "continual coming" and “NO is not an option” that has worked times without number in my life.

You are solely responsible for the outcome you achieve from this program, for instance you cannot fornicate during the cause of this exercise or fail to observe the midnight prayers and think you will achieve the same result with someone who did not, sorry no magic here, you must be ready to dedicate this period to God and the Scriptures entirely;

It is expected that we would have our prayers answered at different times and in different ways so the duration this will take cannot really be given, as we have different depths of problems, but the objective is to prove to all participants that it is possible to have your heart’s desire met in line with God’s word.

Along the line you may find some instructions or activities weird, but just know you will never be asked to do anything outside the Holy Bible.
Now for the practical, I had yesterday morning four slices of bread two eggs and water, for lunch/dinner I ate less than the normal quantity of rice with banana, am a little on the big side, I weigh a little over 90kg grin for me this is a great reduction.

How the Fast is observed would best be determined by the participant, your type of job must be taken into consideration, for me I work in an office so I can afford to stay without food for the whole day,
Continue reading the Scriptures and praying at your own time.

Sleep calleth, update by 10a.m this morning.

when is the program and date
Re: Pray Until Something Happens by trueking: 8:46pm On Apr 04, 2017
Tomorrow, from six a.m no food, you can drink water, write a list of your heart's desires and find supporting scriptures that back them, morning prayer for one hour, in this format - praise and worship as the Holy spirit directs, for twenty minutes, prayers of repentance and forgiveness with scriptures backing for fifteen minutes, then your own supplication (what you want God to do for you in this program), for another fifteen minutes, then seal all with praise and worship plus the Blood of Jesus, for ten minutes, that's one hour. This routine will be maintained every morning but there will be slight changes.
Questions are welcome.
To our freedom in Jesus name.

Trueking, Lepasharon won't join in your prayer because she doesn't believe a Jew died for her sins and rightly so; she's an African, nothing concern her with wetin happen for Israel; even the Jews themselves don't believe that bull that's why Muslims in Israel outnumber Christians by 7 to 1

but a Nigerian read from a book given to them by their slavemasters and quickly concluded that they know better about Jesus than the Jews whose ancestors saw Jesus physically

I hope she has a change of heart, but if I go into all that stuff now, I would end up derailing the thread, but if she can follow the prayers, within three days she would see changes.

My friend, go and work hard and stop advising people to waste their time to success. This is why Nigerians are getting dumber and lazier.
Instead of encouraging people to work hard and think smart u are asking them to pray and not eat.

Thank you dear, I just deliberately chose to ignore such comments, or the aim here would be defeated, I am typing this from the office so i cannot ask people to be lazy, I just want people to trust their situations into God s hands and draw closer to him, no matter the challenges they are going through, (me inclusive), if you are in PH and can make out time, please attend the ongoing "The power of Prayer" at any salvation ministries church near you.
Remain blessed.

By now, hunger would have started knocking on the door of some people, grin But this is expected, this phase will linger on till 11 a.m, it would subside and return by 2p.m, just hold on, you will not die, remove your mind from the hunger and concentrate on God and The Scriptures

Be careful what comes out of your mouth, become taciturn, talk only when necessary, also watch people and their attitude towards you, some would be used by the Devil to tempt you, try and ignore them in this regard, I have this experience, in my office, anytime I fast, there are certain people that become aggressive towards me, or some of my subordinates would deliberately not carry out assignments delegated to them, when questioned, they have no cogent reason, I used to get worked up on such before, but now I laugh and tell the devil to get "behind me."
I am bringing this up so you will know that people can be used by the Devil to try and make you commit besetting sins, and thereby tampering with the results of your prayers.

I understand his plight. It is beyond his imagination that i can actually make it without subscribing to his imaginary God.
Isn't it obvious that he is a sad man? Praying,fasting night and day, yet he is no different from those who don't​ care, now the best he can do is wish i was poor. Unfortunately his God has failed.

@analice if you know how many Christians i am feeding you will actually commit suicide.

You are asking people to pray yet you are in the office. What are u doing there? Why not go home and pray? Why waste your time to pray when u know u will still go to the office to work and face the same challenges with Muslims , pagans and atheists?
My friend choose one. It's either you pray and let God do the rest or u work hard and give in ur best. Combining the two actually means u don't so much trust in ur prayers.
If you still have to work hard after praying then you must accept with me that your prayer useless.

All these self suffering and punishment for what? At the end you'd still remain an average citizen in the society. You will still be waiting for Buhari's decision to determine how much u will buy garri. You will still work hard to receive Ur salary which will be paid by your fellow man who probably does not care about praying. You will still look for another excuse when u don't get what u expect.
What's no just work hard

Everything in life is not all about money, working hard (although the Holy Spirit can show you how to work smart instead of working hard), There are different problems we encounter as individuals, I have a job yes, but I have other needs money cannot solve, believe me when I say money cannot solve them, there are people with incurable diseases, there are some with abusive spouses, some have trouble getting a mate, some are stagnant in their life, The Holy Spirit can give you guidance regarding what to do, he has different ways of talking to his children, sometimes it can come as an advise from some other person, or a fleeting thought can just cross your mind, and when you work on it you succeed, I can go on and on about this, my brother this world is not made up of just the material things you see around you, there is a lot more we cannot see, trust me bro I have been there, everything you see in the material world is controlled by the spiritual, the spirit realm is as real as the physical, I dare say it is even more real than what you see around you, I want to challenge you, fast with us for three days and observe the midnight prayers, you will see in a change in your dreams, if you are earnest in your prayers God will answer you, in fact na people like you God dey find to show you a sign to follow him.

You do not seem to understand frank317

What is the point of praying if you will eventually end up facing the same challenges people who do not believe in your god face?

And what is the point of praying if at the end you still get the same results as other who do not pray get?

At the characters in bold, you must have heard there are more than one ways to skin a cat, In the Bible the Babylonians were rich and powerful, but they were neither Christians nor followers of Jehovah, its all about choice, choose you this day who you will serve...
God can give you a job, so can the devil, and there is also provision in the natural for you to get a job, I am for God, and my achievements are through him, I want people to know God can also do the impossible for them like he has done for me countless number of times, choose to either entrust your life to God, or go your way.

oga, be it money, marital issues, sickness or psychological problems... people need to be proactive and take charge of their life issues. Praying and still mentally trying to resolve ur problems only make the prayer useless.
I am yet to see anyone that prays and not actively work on his challenges.
And you know you lie when you say Holy spirit gives gudiance. people make decision and call it Holy spirit. I have gone through a problem and came up with a solution after thinking hard something similar to what a christian friend had gone through, yet he was quick to call it the holy spirit when he resolved his own issue. What then solved mine since i dont have the holy spirit? If I can solve my issues just as holy spirit can solve yours does it mean i am equal with the holy spirit? why not come and pray to me.
I am yet to see anything special about being a praying and fasting christian, I see me and them having equal opportunities and i am most times better because the waste their time praying and fasting.
The bad news is that when i face similar challenges with them they blame my issues on lack of prayer and say theirs is as a result of temptations from the devil.

why suffer and pray and fast when at the end you will still face similar challenges with me?

why should devil give you a job? I thought u guys said he came to kill steal and destroy, so why should he give anyone any job?

Besides, how do we know when a job is from the devil, God or neutral? I see Christians who say God has given them a job, but some of them are not doing better than me who does not believe in any God.
Why should a whole God, the creator of the universe, the all knowing and all powerful, give you a job and you will be just an average citizen or you will just be rich, still struggling in your daily hustles to maintain that position. there must be something fishy in this bogus claim.
Re: Pray Until Something Happens by frank317: 11:58am On Apr 05, 2017
Trueking, honestly answer this...

Mr. A believes in God, prays and fast steadily but does not work hard neither does he actively looks for work. He stays in his house all day and believes that he will everything he desires; god job, free money just as long as he is steadfast in praying

Mr B believs in God, prays and fast and goes out to search for work. Infact, he works hard and always thinks of the solution to his problems while he always prays and fast.

Mr. C does not believe in God neither does he fast nor prays. He just works hard and thinks of a solution to his problems.


Please without talking long, who do you think is less likely to succeed between the three of them?
Re: Pray Until Something Happens by trueking: 12:34pm On Apr 05, 2017
Ask Jesus to strengthen you, in John 15verse5, Jesus said
“I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. "
Emphasis on without me you can do nothing; you must be connected to Jesus to bear fruit, but most importantly for strength and guidance,
between now and 1p.m pour your heart out to God, meditate on Jeremiah 29 verses 11, 12, and 13 only, believe God for an epiphany of those verses.

I will post excerpts from a book on the importance of midnight prayers, its written by a white guy, its called "Prayer cook book for champions " (Later).
you can not pray for two hours every night for two weeks and think your situation will remain the same, its just not possible, the answer will either be on the way like the case of Daniel, or you would have received it, or heard from God concerning the answer but God will never leave you blank, I assure you with all confidence, its time to get up and tell the devil "enough is enough".
