[adsense] DANIEL 10:16-17 “I AM OVERCOME WITH ANGUISH BECAUSE OF THE VISION, MY LORD AND I AM HELPLESS. HOW CAN I YOUR SERVANT TALK WITH YOU MY LORD? MY STRENGTH IS GONE AND I CAN HARDLY BREATHE.”
The challenges that brought anguish upon Daniel may be different from what we are facing today. Basically Daniel and the children of Israel were in captivity when he found the book of Jeremiah and got the revelation that the captivity was suppose to last 70years. The verse above mentions the words anguish and helpless, the positions where we may find ourselves as Christians every now and then. The Bible warns us about perilous times and without any doubt we are in perilous times.
What is bearing anguish and helplessness in your life? The enemy releases the spirit of despair in so many forms. Many are sick, tormented by evil spirits, unclean spirits, poverty, lack of favor, and other things that rob their strength. Without strength it is difficult to hold on to the promises of GOD especially during trying times. We need strength..even our LORD JESUS was strengthened by angels when HE prayed on the Mount of Olives (Luke 22:43) . We bless the NAME OF THE LORD for HIS faithfulness as HE does not leave HIS children without a way of escape. The LORD is our strength (psalm 28:7)..If you are in the same position of anguish and helplessness, there is hope in the LORD.
How can we gain strength from GOD? We will mention just a few here.
1. By asking. Ask and you shall receive. We see Daniel asking for strength and below he was strengthened and even asked to be ministered to
AGAIN THE ONE WHO LOOKED LIKE A MAN TOUCHED ME AND GAVE ME STRENGTH. ‘DO NOT BE AFRAID, O MAN HIGHLY ESTEEMED,’ HE SAID. ‘PEACE! BE STRONG NOW; BE STRONG.’ WHEN HE SPOKE TO ME I WAS STRENGTHENED AND SAID, ‘SPEAK, MY LORD SINCE YOU HAVE GIVEN ME STRENGTH’
2. Anointing. Psalm 89:21
3. Through our praises we render to GOD. Psalm 59:16-17
4. From GOD’S word. Isaiah 40:29-31
Lets us ask for strength on a daily basis. And if you are confident that you do not lack strength please intercede for those who are weak and weary. We are one body, so all those who are part of the BODY OF CHRIST that need help or encouragement in one area or the other are our Christian obligations. The word says bear one another’s burdens..releasing our faith is one of the best ways to fulfill this obligation, especially where distance is a barrier to our actions..
LET US PRAY!!!
HE GIVES STRENGTH TO THE WEARY AND INCREASES THE POWER OF THE WEAK.
1.Lord JESUS YOU are my strength..strengthen me according to YOUR WORD. LORD strengthen the sick, strengthen those who are waiting on YOU to perform YOUR word in their lives.
2.LORD strengthen the BODY OF CHRIST. Strengthen YOUR servants, as Elijah was strengthened, even JESUS was strengthened, LORD YOU are our strength, strengthen us oh GOD in the NAME OF JESUS

4. LORD strengthen those in hospitals, strengthen those condemned to die by doctors ..LORD strengthen those with infirmities that are hoping in YOUR HEALING POWER IN THE NAME OF JESUS
5. LORD increase YOUR POWER WHERE YOUR NAME IS MENTIONED..LORD YOU ARE POWERFUL AND FAITHFUL..FATHER MANIFEST YOUR POWER AMONG YOUR PEOPLE OH GOD…HALLELUJAH. WE NEED YOU LORD TO MANIFEST YOUR POWER IN A NEW WAY..DO NOT LET THE FURY OF THE ENEMY OVERTAKE YOUR CHILDREN IN THE NAME OF JESUS.
