DEMAND IT

Thank God for today. I hope you had a good week? I thank God for your life and for a new day. You have overcome. Amen, hallelujah

Father God, help us to understand your word in Jesus Name, Amen.

I would love to start today’s talk about a particular type of prayer, the prayer of DEMAND. You demand what is yours by right. When you start from the book of 1st Timothy 2:1 it says “I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men” there are four types of prayers mentioned here, the first one, supplication is the Greek word deesis, pronounced  (deh’-ay-sis) it means a petition:–prayer, request. It is followed by Prayers that is proseuche, pronounced (pros-yoo-khay’) which is worship and praying earnestly as in what we do in church. It is followed by intercessions the Greek word is enteuxis pronounced  (ent’-yook-sis) meaning an interview or entugchano,  pronounced (en-toong-khan’-o) to chance upon, by implication confer with; by extension to entreat (in favor or against) in other words pleading your case.  Then there is giving of thanks eucharistia pronounced  (yoo-khar-is-tee’-ah) or eucharistos  (yoo-khar’-is-tos) gratitude; actively being grateful in a language to God, as an act of worship or thankfulness.

These are the forms of prayers we find in the New Testament but it does not end there. There is a fifth one not mentioned here found in the book of Mark 11:24 “Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them” the word desire there is the Greek word aiteo (ahee-teh’-o) meaning  strictly a demand for something due

When you desire a thing, in presenting it before the Lord, this is the type of prayer to put forward. It is called “aiteo”. Just like in the book of Genesis when God created this earth. He said “let there be light” and it is recorded that there was light. When it was recorded that God “said” that should have been translated “prayed” because He made a demand on a situation that was chaotically dark. He desired a change and called (prayed) it to be. “Aiteo” is a prayer of demand on what is due. It can be directed at a person, situation or a thing. Jesus was teaching His disciples faith when He made a pronouncement on a fig tree that had no fruits on it two days before. The manifestation was seen two days later. The disciples were surprised and called His attention to it. He now told them and I paraphrase “when you are in the presence of God wrapped up in God’s faith and you make a demand on anything and I mean anything, not allowing any strange fellow distract you, you will have your request granted” no time frame. Like a Radio or TV waiting for you to turn it on and tune to a frequency or channel before you can receive any transmitted program so also your faith is perpetually seated in your heart waiting to be activated by the word of God which will prompt it into action, bringing your request to manifestation.

Do not think the answer is not here because the situation remained the same after you prayed. When Jesus spoke, people heard it. It took two days for the manifestation. You are to believe what you said like God did at the creation in Genesis 1:1 we were made in the image and likeness of Him. Jesus has restored us to that status. Don’t forget our victory is not in manifestations but in our faith 1 John 5:4 “For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith We don’t see to believe, but we believe to see. Abraham was told he would be father of many nations but the guy only had one promised son before he died but look at it today, how many millions are there? even you are a spiritual son.

So when you “aiteo” that thing or situation, let your conffer stand your ground and “…ask in faith, (of God) nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. (And why is that so? It is because) A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” James 1:6-8 Again I say, stand your ground for as long as it will take, for “…he that endureth to the end shall be saved” Matthew 10:22

Gog Bless you
