PRAYER FOR DIVINE FAVOUR
Bible Reading: Luke 1:26-38, 2 CORINTHIANS 6:2
“26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.
30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.
31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.
32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?
35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren.
37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.
38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.” Luke 1:26-38
Favour is defined as “an act of kindness, approval, goodwill.
Generally, life does not answer to struggle or academic qualifications. Life answers to favour. A person either enjoys favour or swims in misfortune. Favour is what distinguishes God’s people from the world. The reality of been decorated with divine favour can be established through fervent prayer for divine favour.
When you are led by God, your labour is flavoured with favour and the effect is outstanding and remarkable. Psalm 30:5 says: “…in His favour is life…” God’s favour makes life interesting and pleasant; it’s the grace that enables one to escape disgrace in life. Favour is linked to the mysterious key that opens up destinies. It is God’s willingness for generous treatment and exceptional kindness to someone special. It is the good hand of God upon the life of an individual.
Favour can also be described as God’s divine partiality towards a person. Therefore, you don’t earn favor, you obtain it. A case in point is Jacob and Esau (Romans 9:13). In Nehemiah 1:8, though Nehemiah was a slave yet because of God’s hand upon him, he obtained favor from the king to go and rebuild the walls of Jerusalem.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DIVINE FAVOUR:
There are several important of favor, among are:
- Favor guarantees supernatural prosperity. Exodus 12:35-36.
- It commits people to go beyond their natural power to help the favoured of the Lord. It is an irresistible force that propels people to render needed help. Daniel 1:9.
- Favour deliver what labour cannot give- Deut. 6:10-12
- We need a favour to get a good wife or any other good thing as the case maybe. Proverbs 18:22.
HOW TO POSITION FOR GOD’S FAVOUR
Since favour cannot be bought or acquired, it is important to position ourselves correctly for this free gift of God.
- Be righteous. Psalm 5:12. Joseph was favoured by his father because he did not go into evil deeds like his brothers. Genesis 37:2. Jesus was in favour because He does what pleases His Father. John 8:29. Jesus had favor with GOD and man from the beginning of His life-Luke 2:52.
- Don’t forsake Mercy and Truth. Proverbs 3:3-4 In simple understanding, show mercy to others and God will favour you.
- Do Good. Proverbs 12:2. Favour follows anyone that is divinely guided and the currency to it is right standing with God.
