“And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – (Acts 2:21)
READ: 2 Kings 2:15-22 (KJV)
15 And when the sons of the prophets which were to view at Jericho saw him, they said, The spirit of Elijah doth rest on Elisha. And they came to meet him, and bowed themselves to the ground before him.
16 And they said unto him, Behold now, there be with thy servants fifty strong men; let them go, we pray thee, and seek thy master: lest peradventure the Spirit of the LORD hath taken him up, and cast him upon some mountain, or into some valley. And he said, Ye shall not send.
17 And when they urged him till he was ashamed, he said, Send. They sent therefore fifty men; and they sought three days, but found him not.
18 And when they came again to him, (for he tarried at Jericho,) he said unto them, Did I not say unto you, Go not?
19 And the men of the city said unto Elisha, Behold, I pray thee, the situation of this city is pleasant, as my lord seeth: but the water is naught, and the ground barren.
20 And he said, Bring me a new cruse, and put salt therein. And they brought it to him.
21 And he went forth unto the spring of the waters, and cast the salt in there, and said, Thus saith the LORD, I have healed these waters; there shall not be from thence any more death or barren land.
22 So the waters were healed unto this day, according to the saying of Elisha which he spake.
In (2 Kings 2:19-22), the men of Jericho had been suffering under a curse for years. Barrenness and death were the order of the day. Everything looked good on the surface, but underneath, there was a lot of sorrow and decadence, yet they kept quiet. Their hope for restoration seemed lost when Elijah, who had been around them for a while, was taken away with the chariot of fire. Fortunately for them, Elisha had received the double portion of Elijah’s spirit. The moment they saw that he had Elijah’s spirit in him, they cried for help. That day, the yoke that had lingered for generations was destroyed.
If you have been postponing going on a retreat where you can be alone with God to discuss a negative generational pattern you have noticed in your family, a time may come when it would be too late and your children would have to battle the same problem. When you have had enough, you will go to a solitary place and really cry to the Almighty God in desperation saying, “Lord, I will not let you go unless you change this evil pattern for good”.
The prayer of ‘enough is enough’ is one that you do all night in private where you can take any position you want without bothering who is looking at you.
One of my sons-in-the-Lord came to me one day and said he was living in the same house with a witchdoctor and she was affecting his work negatively as he was not making any progress. I said, “Why don’t you eject the woman, are you not supposed to be a prayer Warrior?” He said, “No, I’m a tenant, just like she is; just pray for me that I make progress at work and everyone can have their own way”. After a while, I didn’t see my son until he showed up one day with rashes all over his body. He said that the witchdoctor had had him accused of robbery and arrested. After some days in detention, during which time mosquitoes had feasted very well on him, the policemen saw that this man was always singing and quoting the Bible, so they released him. I told him, “I said you should remove this fellow, you refused; now she is moving you. The next time she moves you, you won’t come back”. That day he prayed, and within three days, the woman relocated. Stop postponing your freedom because the one keeping you in bondage may strike so hard that you won’t be able to recover. I hope you are ready to pray now
Anything, anyone, any force that is disturbing me and my family, today, let the fire of God fall and consume them in Jesus’ name.

HYMNAL: 6 – HO! MY COMRADES, SEE THE SIGNAL
1. Ho, my comrades, see the signal, waving in the sky!
Reinforcements now appearing, victory is nigh.
“Hold the fort, for I am coming,” Jesus signals still;
Wave the answer back to heaven, “By Thy grace we will.”
2. See the mighty host advancing, Satan leading on,
Mighty ones around us falling, courage almost gone!
3. See the glorious banner waving, Hear the trumpet blow!
In our Leader’s Name we triumph over every foe.
4. Fierce and long the battle rages, but our help is near,
Onward comes our great Commander, cheer, my comrades, cheer!
