Your Prayer & Your Glory

2 Peter 1:19

You have glory that God has given you.
You have a 'star', a heavenly manifestation of your God given glory.
You star reveals the glory you are supposed to manifest on the earth. Romans 8:19

The wise men could see that the star of Jesus which appeared is the star of a king, the star of a man who is not ordinary.
They could see the fulfillment of prophecy in the star of Jesus, they could tell the Messiah has been born.
They rose up, traveled a long journey and came to worship the man whose star has been seen.
May your star be seen by the right people!
The right people are those who rejoice when they see see your glory.

Prayer affects the earthly, heavenly and spiritual realms. James 5:17
Prayer can protect and help the shinning of your star.
Prophets and inspired men had been praying about the coming of Jesus Christ for hundreds of years.
Prayer can defeat and dislodge evil forces against your glory.
Prayer is part of your spiritual armour and weaponry. Ephesians 6:18

There are evil spirits in heavenly places that manipulate, destroy or attack people's lives.
Prayer is a spiritual weapon with which we defeat them.
The evil done against us by tampering with our 'star' can be reversed in the place of prayer.
Prayer is one of the spiritual weapons a believer has that tears down strongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4

God is the giver of glory.
God is a glorious God.
He created man in His image and likeness, so man has been created with glory attached to his life just like His creator.
Psalm 84:11

Prayer helps us connect to the glorious God and helps maintain our relationship with Him.
An aspect of the glory we have been given is divine presence.
God's presence is glory in itself.
Prayer helps us stay sensitive to God,and helps us to be aware of divine presence.
