Being freed from bondage – Prayer for Lent #day 31. Sometimes, we feel that the things that we have the plan to do that will bring success and make us great, we will find them hard to do and then refuse to do them. It is not until we see ourselves tied physically before we know that there is the power holding us down. Let us talk to the Lord to help us overcome them.

Bible Verses for Today

“Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain. And he shall bring forward the top stone amid shouts of ‘Grace, grace to it!” (Zechariah 4:7)

Zerubbabel was able to speak to the mountain that was hindering him from moving forward. What Zerubbabel has here is not just mouth but faith. He spoke to the mountain with faith. Many things are stopping us from moving forward. Some of us, know this is not the spot we ought to be right now. Some things are holding us down. Until we speak against them, they will never go away from us.

God has given us something powerful than anything in the world that we can use to become powerful ourselves. What we have been given is the name of Jesus. Philippians 2:9-10, “Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth.”

An example of deliverance is the deliverance of Paul and Silas from bondage in the prison. They were tied down and kept in the prison. They refused to close their mouth, they started praying to God and they sang praises too – suddenly, an earthquake happened and the prison foundations were shaken that the chains that were used to tie them broke. That day they escaped bondage because they could open their mouth with faith.

We need to make use of this holy period of Lent and apply faith to break ourselves out of bondages that are keeping us down and stopping us from moving forward.

Jesus told us that what matters most in commanding things is faith – we have the power in us through Christ but faith is needed to activate it. Matthew 17:20 says, “He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly, I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”

Being Freed from Bondage Prayer for Today

Lord, give me the power of faith today. I speak against the enemy holding me down in one place refusing me to progress in Jesus’ name. Lord, I pray that by the power of the Lord, I will be free. During this time of Lent, I will have a testimony of freedom from sin, from poverty, from sickness, and every unpleasant situation in my life. Amen.
