How can a young man keep his way pure? By guarding it according to your word. – Psalm 119 vs 9


Be bold, be strong
For the Lord your God is with you
Be bold, be strong
For the Lord your God is with you
I am not afraid I am not dismayed
Because I’m walking in faith and victory
Come on and walk in faith and victory
For the Lord your God is with you

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”
Hebrews 4:16 KJV

We ought to always come before God’s throne with boldness. This boldness is not what we get from our flesh but it is gotten in Jesus Christ. See…👇

“According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord: In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.”
Ephesians 3:11‭-‬12 KJV

As Christians, we are born of the word and the spirit of God. There are many things that we do not need to pray for such as faith, it has been revealed in the word of God in Romans 10:17 that faith comes by hearing the word of God but it is alright for us to pray for boldness. We should pray for boldness!

While praying for the lame man in front of the beautiful gate at the hour of prayer Peter and John were bold. They were even bolder when they declared to the public that it was Jesus that did the miracle they had all witnessed.
They were taken by the Jewish authorities and terrifyingly warned never to preach or teach in the name of Jesus but when they prayed for boldness that prayer was answered.
See for yourself…👇

“And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. And when they had prayed, the place was shaken where they were assembled together; and they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they spake the word of God with boldness.”
Acts 4:29‭-‬31 KJV

Apostle Paul also asked the Ephesian church to pray for him to speak God’s word with boldness in Ephesians 6:18-21.

This morning I’m not just asking you to pray for boldness to speak but rather for most of you I’m asking you to pray for boldness to take actions!
You need boldness to act on God’s word by superimposing His will over every contrary situation you find yourself in.

Some of you need to rise up like King Asa of old and act on God’s word. See what he did…👇

“King Asa also removed Maacah, his mother, from being queen mother. He did this because she had set up one of those awful poles to honor the goddess Asherah. Asa cut down that Asherah pole, smashed it into small pieces, and burned the pieces in the Kidron Valley.”
2 Chronicles 15:16 ERV

Somebody needs boldness to step out from the yoke of singlehood and marry into God’s will!
Shout this :
God, I need boldness!

There are things in God that though you know from the scriptures as His will, only the spirit of boldness that emanates in the Holy Ghost can unlock them in you.

The first time I prayed for a madwoman, many years ago, I needed boldness. Word of knowledge and word of wisdom wasn’t enough!

2 years after I encountered another mad lad in General Sani Abacha hospital, after laying my hand on him to pray for his healing I was told he was a mad child, I needed boldness to continue pronouncing the decree of his healing.

I’ve come to realize over the years that wherever there’s a sure miracle waiting there must be a person who’s willing to step out in boldness to lay hold on it.

It took blind Bartimaeus boldness in Mark 10:47 to lay hold on his miracle despite being forced to hold his peace.

Heaven is ready for you but are you ready to step out in faith and boldness?

The first time I prayed for a man who was blinded by glaucoma he still couldn’t see. I had to pray 3 times before he could begin to see the letters in the bible.
The first time I prayed for someone who had cancer and couldn’t walk nothing happened. I had to be bold in prayer and persevere till he got his miracle the following evening! Even after getting his miracle, the doctors refused to release him from the hospital at FMC OWO without a thorough test to confirm the miracle. I needed boldness to keep affirming the obvious.

You need boldness!
When the spirit of boldness comes upon you where you are will be shaken, and every other issue that stands in your way will be shaken out of its place.

Wherever you are lift up your hands and stand on your feet.
I decree and declare over you this morning, let the spirit of boldness from the throne of grace come upon you!
Boldness to do the will of God, to take actions that give God glory!
Receive it now!
Boldness to move to your next level of greatness, receive it now!
The word of God says we For we are the circumcision, which worships God in the spirit and rejoices in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh. From this moment on may your boldness not be in the flesh! May it be borne of the spirit of God, that unshakable and immovable spirit of grace.
Go and prosper!
