King David found himself in trouble, and he cried to God for help. The king was confident that God would answer his prayers and deliver him from his troubles. David’s prayer is as written,
“How long, O Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long shall I take counsel in my soul, having sorrow in my heart daily? How long will my enemy be exalted over me? Consider and hear me, O Lord my God; enlighten my eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death; lest my enemy say, “I have prevailed against him”; lest those who trouble me rejoice when I am moved” (Psalm 13:1-4).
Christians have no better weapons than prayers. We are encouraged to call on God and table our petitions before him at all times. There is no limit to the number of requests that we should tender before God. He has enough power to handle many situations at the same time, and he will surely respond to the needs of his children. Therefore, with the understanding that Christians are not orphans and powerless, we should walk up to our heavenly Father and request whatever we want from him. God’s responses to prayers include, but are not limited to protections, provisions, and promotions.
Dear God, I understand that you are the king of the universe; you have all things at your disposal, and nothing is difficult for you to do. Therefore, I invite your presence into my situation, and I ask for your help. Please, subdue every mountain of challenges that surround me. Level all mountains of sickness, poverty, and all forms of attacks. Award me victory and give me laughter. Let me rejoice and celebrate your goodness in the land of the living. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
