What Request Are you Making?


Today’s Reading:

Matthew 20:16-22 (21)

"Then came to him the mother of Zebedee's children with her sons, worshipping him, and desiring a certain thing of him..." (v.21)


It is written in Phil. 3:10, that I may know him, and the Power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings being made conformable unto his death.

We are still in the New year, it can be so funny hearing request like, "O Lord give me wealth that would wipe away poverty from my life"; O God give me house, car, wife/ husband, anointing etc but were not ready to submit to God. While all these requests are good, one thing is needful. Matt. :33 says "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you. "

If only we can pant for righteousness, pant to know more of God, as the hart panteth after the water Brooks (Psalm 42:1).

The Mother of Zebedee's children came to request just one thing from the Lord as seen in our reference Scripture, though the other 10 disciples frowned at it, but that was her request.

In the year 2020, I want you to:

  1. That ye seek not after your heart and your own eyes, after which ye use to go a whoring (Nums 15:39).

  2. Thou shalt seek the Lord thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul (Deut.4:29).

  3. Seek the Lord and his strength, seek his face ever more (Psalm 105: 4). Jabez called on the God of Israel and God granted him that which he requested (1 Chronicle 4:10).

  4. Ezra went up from Babylon...and the king granted him all his request, according to the hand of the Lord his God upon him (Ezra 7:6).

  5. Also Queen Esther (Esther 5 -9) and Daniel (Daniel 1:8; 2:49).

Finally, be careful for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God (Phil.4:6).

Therefore as you set your face unto the Lord God throughout this year, to seek by prayer and supplication, with fasting and making request according to his will, God will surprise you pleasantly in Jesus name.

God bless.


Prayer points:

1. O Lord, help our nation to have the fear of God in Jesus name.

2. Help me Lord to decrease while you increase in me in Jesus name.

3. Powers of my father's house frustrating the will of God in my life, Die, in Jesus name.

4. Let your mercy and fear envelop the church of God, in Jesus name.

5. God of Wonders, do your wonders in my life this year in Jesus name.
