Everybody needs prayer, as a matter of fact we should always pray for each other.
But, some ministries put their disciples in a constant posture of needing prayer for the wrong things. It’s like always being hungry for fulfillment and never, never being satisfied.
With these ministries focusing on fleshly needs every week, they are feeding the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, “which are not of the father but of the world.”
While Jesus said the quote below: they (the flock) are constantly led to focus on the exact things Jesus said not to give a thought to.
“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof. —Matthew 6:31-34 KJV
Because these ministries see it necessary to stir up the fleshly desires the world lusts for, their members become dissatisfied babes, constantly craving more things, and a better life here on earth. Their disciples are spiritually unstable and powerless because they are constantly entangled in worldly cares.
(I went to see T.D. Jakes at a church where you can find “your best life now”, and he asks all who are in desperate need to come down close to the alter. Half the church got up (3,000+ ??.) The medicine ain’t working, it’s causing more sickness!)
Jesus said, our care, cravings, and affections, should be for heaven–spiritual things. Sounds to me like, mastering, and memorizing the word of God might be one of those things to care about? Thirst and hunger for God’s food and water! DRINK and FEAST! If we need to know what seeking heaven means.
There are even promises attached to this task:
“Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and show him my salvation. –Psalms 91:14-16 KJV
Chronic sickness is not normal when you know the Great Physician.
Mat 11:28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
