Life Is Not Controlled By Prayers

By Charles Awuzie


Life is controlled by Prayers. If you can pray, you will not have any problems in life. The problem you are facing now is because of your prayerlessness . . .

The above statement is false.

Prayer is only but a SCS – Spiritual Communication System, not a Life Controlling System.

Prayer is like the mobile device in your hands, which connects you with fellow humans. But unlike the mobile phone, prayer connects you with the realm of the spirit for fellowship and communion with fellow spirit beings. It is only a fool who can say that life is controlled by the mobile phone in their hands. That’s not true. The mobile phone is only but a tool in the hands of the holder.

That’s the same thing with prayer—it’s only but a tool in your hands. You are still the controller of your own life.

Prayer will not save you from bad decisions; wisdom will.

Prayer will not make you pass your professional exams; studying will.

Prayer will not give you an advantage over your competitors in the marketplace; intelligence will.

Prayer will not conduct surgery on your aged parents; medical science will.

If life was controlled by prayers, Chris Oyakhilome wouldn’t hire AK-47-carrying bodyguards to protect himself when he can just wave his hands and criminals would be slain under the anointing.

If life was controlled by prayers, Dr. Paul Enenche, David Ibiyeomie, David Oyedepo, Daniel Olukoya, etc. will not use lawyers and the court system to address cases of libel or theft in their organizations; they would just pray and the perpetrators will collapse wherever they are.

If life was controlled by prayers, no prayerful student would fail any examination or get fired at work. You need to study and work hard to attain success in your field.

I am a prayerful person myself. C’mon, I pray more than most of you. I am a walking tongue-talker. I have mentioned here before that I speak in tongues even in board meetings. But those prayers are only strong network signals of my spiritual connectivity. As far as the earth realm is concerned, success in this realm is dependent on you and me—our decisions, our application of intelligence, our ability to learn and implement new strategies, our integrity and ability to preserve integrity, etc.

There are natural laws and there are supernatural laws. Don’t let anyone tell you that the natural bows to the supernatural; it’s not true. Both the natural and the supernatural are God’s ordinances, and neither of them is lower in rank.

We are both natural beings and supernatural beings. We are not Supernatural beings alone, else we would be spirits without body.

We are not also natural beings alone, else we would be bodies without spirits.

We are plural beings experiencing plural realities.

Awakening to this consciousness will bring equilibrium and harmony to your existence.

I could go on and on . . .

But if you are awakened, if you are no longer in bed with false religion, if you have raised your level of intelligence, if you are not just looking for Bible references, if you can think outside the box for once, you will find truth in this truth.

I control my own life; you control your own life.

Know this.

Maranatha.

  1. Good day sir, I agree with this post 98% but on the point which says “you are the controller of your life” I stand to disagree sir. I do think the statement should be rephrased as “you have a crucial role to play in your life”. Sir,there are times in life when you do everything right but the result will still go against you, if you are actually the sole controller of your life then your level of input should always be equal to your output. I stand to be corrected if my perspective regarding the statement is wrong.
    It’s a great write-up and I learnt a lot from it,thanks sir.

  2. Thanks for your comment. And yes, you do have a point. There are things that are definitely out of our control, and even when all the right and necessary things have been done, things still go awry. However, I think the main message this post is trying to convey is that for the most part, life is governed by natural laws, which God has put in place. And the miraculous (which prayers are to invoke) are merely rare and supernatural interventions in the affairs of nature. Therefore, it is necessary for one to live daily by laws which are already ordained by God, than to hope for the miraculous daily. Also, it is not necessary to agree 100% with all ideas you come across, you can take what’s useful and practical, and leave what you think is not applicable to your life.

    • Thanks for your comments sir, I now have a clearer view of your point
      “man should live daily obeying the natural laws that has been established by God already and not disobeying the natural laws while waiting for a supernatural intervention”
      This is a large piece of truth,once again,thanks sir.
