Often times, many people undo their prayers. It is possible to pray and fast for 40 days and undo it all in one day. They may have prayed and even asked others to pray, but then they nullify their prayers and the faith of those who are praying with them by speaking and acting negatively.

I heard of someone who was asking a pastor to pray for his son. However, at the same time he was requesting prayer, he would tell his boy, “You’ll never amount to anything. I don’t know what in the world I’m going to do with you! I have done everything I can do. I have prayed and prayed, but it looks like my prayers don’t do any good.” This man was confessing defeat and failure rather than victory and faith. He was building doubt and insecurity into his son. He was nulifying the prayer.

I read of another story of Pastor’s son. His parents were impatient and short-tempered with him. They were always telling him he would never amount to anything. Sure enough, he didn’t! He broke the hearts of his parents. He was married several times, and he never provided a living for his family. These parents may have prayed and asked their church to pray. They may have shed many tears and even fasted. But their lives nullified the effects of their prayers.

As we pray for anything, we must not do anything or say anything contrary to our prayers. The word of God says we shall have whatsoever we say (Mark 11:23-24). Don’t nulify your prayers with your words and your actions. Always speak and act in the direction of your prayers.
