Apostle John was exiled to the island of Patmos. He was full of passion to preach the Gospel. However, God allowed him a time of complete solitude. If you do not possess the power of prayer, you can never win. Then, what do you need to know in order to receive the answers of God’s Word and prayer?
1. An Eternal System, a System That Descends from Above, and an Answer System
When you pray, the Triune God works, and you will enjoy God’s Kingdom. Also, the background of Hell is destroyed, and you will receive the help of angels. Furthermore, you will use your authority to defeat Satan; you will receive the blessing of everything going well with your soul; and you will enjoy the blessing of the model church of Heaven. (an eternal system) An angel puts your prayer in a golden censer and delivers it to the altar where God’s throne is placed. (a system that descends from above) It is at this time when your mind and heart change. Your prayer is not only contained in your brain and soul, but it is directly connected to Hell and the heavenly throne. Your prayer realistically works. (an answer system)
2. Enjoying Answers to Prayer – at Church, by Yourself, and for the Future
God answers prayers and fulfills His Word through the model church of Heaven. If you have received grace through the church, then all you need to do is enjoy prayer by yourself in the morning, in the afternoon, and at night before you go to sleep. Then, then He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. This means that you will enter the future that God leads.
The contents of a vessel are more important than its shape. Because you possess the covenant of Christ in your soul, you will certainly be used for world evangelization that God will fulfill. If you believe in God’s power and leave everything completely up to Him, then He will lead you.
[Covenantal Prayer] Dear God, I thank You for giving me the status and authority to pray. Help me to realistically enjoy the blessing of prayer and answers.

[Deep Questions] Q. What Is Placed Inside You?
No matter how good a vessel is
if it’s filled with body waste,
then it’s nothing but a bedpan.
No matter how ruined a vessel is
if it’s filled with jewels,
then it’s a jewelry box.
No matter how run-down a house is
if a king resides in it,
then it’s a royal palace.
The outer appearance and shape do not matter.
God has called you as His temple,
and He is with you.
Even if you’re a vessel made of clay,
you have a treasure, that is Jesus Christ, inside you.
Your true value is not placed on your appearance,
But in the “treasure” that you possess.
“But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.” (2 Corinthians 4:7)
