Matthew 21:12 

And Jesus went into the temple of God, and cast out all them that sold and bought in the temple, and overthrew the tables of the moneychangers, and the seats of them that sold doves, and said unto them, It is written, My house shall be called a house of prayer; but ye have made it a den of thieves.” 

It is most fascinating that, one of the first few times Jesus went into the temple, He caused such a stir by his anger that everybody in Jerusalem heard about it. Violently, Jesus paraded around, overturning the tables of the money changers and whipping bowls of money off of them. When He had finished, He stood up on the steps of the temple, probably out of breath and yelled, “My house shall be called a house of prayer!”


The Lord’s house is a house of prayer. We would do well to note that the believer’s most effective means of establishing a relationship with Christ is through prayer. Prayer is grounded upon relationship. We are His tabernacle, and His tabernacle was called a house of prayer. Therefore, we must pray always, lifting Holy hands.


We can’t turn our tabernacles into places where we conduct Christian practices; we must make our vessels unto honor, pure and clean, and free from worldly practices. When you are in genuine prayer, you aren’t focused on the things around you. Therefore, it is through prayer that you can loosen the enemy's grip, and allow Christ to work.
Remember that God’s house is a house of prayer. Don’t let down in your prayer life. Let the Holy Spirit come to you through prayer today. Take time to pray.


54-0723 - “Prophet Elisha” 

Sometimes we go off on a tantrum somewhere and not think about God, not pray over it, ask the Lord whether we should do it or not, and we find out that our supply of blessings is cut off. Then we wonder sometime, "Well, wonder why I can't have no more blessings." You don't watch, you let down in your prayer life. You say, "Well, I'm a Christian." Well, that's the more sign you should pray, more than ever. Read the Bible every day. Pray every day. Don't make any decisions too harshly or too quickly, without first considering God about it. Ask Him, "Shall I do this, Father?" Ask Him, "Is it Your will for me to do this?" Then see what the Holy Spirit will speak to you. He might not give you a vision, but He will speak in some way to you, to let you know, if you'll be sincere and ask Him.
