The Ashaiman Area Head of The Church of Pentecost, Prophet David Kankam Beditor, has urged Christians to steadfastly pray since prayer is the livewire of the church.
Prophet Kankam Beditor, who is also an Executive Council Member of the Church, made this assertion when he fellowshipped with the Lebanon District English Assembly on Sunday, August 16, 2020, to climax their prayer and fasting week.
Speaking on the topic, “Possessing the Nations Through Prayer,” with referencing texts from Jeremiah 10: 21, Exodus 34: 28-30 and Luke 9:28-30, Prophet Kankam said that prayer changes impossible situations to possibilities.
“Prayer is life; when you stop praying, you stop living spiritually,” he said.
The Ashaiman Area Head added that just as a car engine needs fuel to continue moving, and human beings need breath to survive, so is prayer needed for the growth of Christians.
He noted that Jesus Christ was committed to prayer, so every Christian must take a cue from that, adding that any Christian who refuses to pray can move about all right but “dead” spiritually. He stressed that the only means by which the church can defeat the works of the devil is to pray without ceasing.
“Demons will be afraid of you, so don’t take prayer as a joke. Being with the Lord causes your face to shine and demonic powers will be afraid to come near you,” he said.
Citing the prayer life of Daniel, Esther, Peter, Paul and John, Prophet Kankam said that it is prayer that brings God into the equation and, therefore, must be a tool at all times for every Christian.
He added that the body is the temple of God and that the temple is the house of prayer, therefore, prayer must become the lifestyle of Christians wherever they find themselves.
Prophet David Kankam Beditor also admonished leaders of the church at all levels to lead a prayerful life by example for the flock to emulate.
