Many years ago, during one of our church services at Ebute-Metta, Lagos, I announced that there would be no prayers on that day, because we were only going to praise God. Incidentally, a woman in a wheel chair had been brought to that service for prayers. When those who brought her asked to see the pastor for prayers, the ushers told them that the pastor has instructed that no one would be prayed for; instead, everyone should dance and praise God. These people felt disappointed, but the woman asked them to help her up and support her as she tried to dance even in her pain. However, before long, she pushed them aside and was dancing without any help – she had been healed! Some people have their miracle right in front of them, but they never get it because they do not make any move of faith. Ephesians 5:14 says Christ will give you light after you have awoken and arisen, not before. In other words, you have your role to play in getting whatever God has promised you.
As a lecturer and pastor in Ilorin many years ago, I was so ill one day that I could not go for the midweek service that day. I lay in bed and decided that since I couldn’t go to church, I would at least listen to a sermon on the radio. As I lay there in pain listening to the radio, it seemed as if the preacher was talking to me directly. He said “If you are sick and you have asked God to heal you, then what are you still doing on the bed? If you are still lying in bed, then you don’t believe that God has healed you, and you will remain there until you believe.” I immediately got up from the bed and went to church; even though I was still in serious pain. Getting to church, I met the brethren still praising and worshipping God, since I, the pastor, wasn’t around to preach. I stayed at the back and tried my best to dance, even though I was still in pain. Soon, I felt like using the toilet, so I went to the restroom. By the time I was done, all the pain and sickness was gone! Hallelujah!
Are you expecting something from God? Tell Him about it and then make a move. If you have faith that is not combined with works, it is dead faith. Make your faith come alive today by moving in the direction of your miracle. Healing is already yours by His stripes; all you have to do is get up and claim it.
Written by Pastor E.A. Adeboye.

The Letter P is first in PRAY, a 360degree word, which is as round or as spherical as The World itself.
P stands for Praise, Praise, Praise and Praise. Hallelujah Hosana in The Highest.. Praise is the beginning and in fact the highest in God's rekoning in Prayer. Prayer is God's Food. Praise is The Protein therein.
So keep praising God with all your Heart, and with all your Soul, and with all your Mind and with all your Strength.
Praise is A+ to earn your Miracle for it is an Order for Faith, Hope,, Perseverance and Love in God, The Creator of Heaven and Earth.
