Everyone uses cell phones these days. It’s a way of communicating with people that we know, family friends, business contacts…for many it has become an essential tool.
Prayer is a way of communicating with God. It is a special language. It brings us closer to God. As spirit beings we thrive on that communication. Prayer is essential especially if you understand the importance of faith, the importance of seeking God’s wisdom, the importance of staying within God’s perfect will for our lives. Prayer is key. It is critical.
“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.”
Prayer is a journey into the unknown to get answers and it is always a successful journey.
Let’s look at some scriptures:
“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into
a solitary place, and there prayed.” Mark 1:35
Jesus knew the importance of prayer.
1 Chronicles 16:11 (NIV)
11 Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face alway
Psalms 4:1 (NIV)
1 Answer me when I call to you, O my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; be merciful to me and hear my prayer.
Psalms 5:3 (NIV)
3 In the morning, O LORD, you hear my voice; in the morning I lay my requests before you and wait in expectation.
Psalms 17:1 (NIV)
1 Hear, O LORD, my righteous plea; listen to my cry. Give ear to my prayer– it does not rise from deceitful lips.
Psalms 25:1 (NIV)
1 To you, O LORD, I lift up my soul;
Psalms 37:7 (NIV)
7 Be still before the LORD and wait patiently for him; do not fret when men succeed in their ways, when they carry out their wicked schemes.
Psalms 50:15 (NIV)
15 and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you will honor me.
Because prayer reels us in to the heart of God, it brings us inside so that we can hear Him and not miss His desires for us! That’s why.
I love you soo much that my eyes fill with tears as I think of Your goodness and Your love. The depths of my heart leap when I think of Your magnificence and Your splendor. The plan that You’ve designed for me is so great, so incredible beyond my earthly comprehension. I am humbled and I thank You for Your patience with me. I’ve walked this walk so many miles; yet I don’t feel like a wearied soldier…I am fresh and new facing each day looking for new places to conquer and people to meet who have been sent by You.
Help me to prove myself worthy as I rejoice in You. Teach me more and more as You increase me. I promise always to stay close and I thank You for Your drawing power. I love You far too much to let go. I shall not do that thing. My life before being with You day in and day out was nothing but a sham and I cannot accept less than I have with You now. You are first and what You’ve called for me to do is first.
I want to go and do what You’ve told me to do and no one else. I want to carry out Your plans and not slip or to get off of the path You’ve designed for me to be on. I will not be deterred by strong feelings or the things that go on in the world around me. Teach me not to judge but to love and to pray for others and to love them with an insatiable love; the kind that never fails no matter what. Continue to give me wisdom and peace and understanding beyond all earthly comprehension. I am so thankful. For Christ’s sake I pray. Amen.
God is no repecter of persons the Bible says in many places. That means that what He’ll do for someone else, He’ll do for you. It’s not likely to be done in the exact same way, but He’ll do it for you. Now, I know for a fact that He answers prayer. I see it and hear it all the time.
They can be little problems or big ones; it’s all the same to God. He can handle anything. Sometimes the answer will be different than we thought, but after a while, we’ll realize it’s a better answer.
I talked about this a little before.
I talked to a person on the phone last week. They were greatly distressed over an income tax check that hadn’t come. When they picked up their papers from the tax person, they forgot to check them over. They just signed them and mailed them into the IRS. Unfortunately, the preparer had put the wrong address down. This caused the person great distress because they needed the check badly. Furthermore, the check was actually supposed to be a Direct Deposit, but the preparer had put the wrong routing number on it. The person who the check belonged to had written several hundred dollars worth of checks on their account expecting everything to balance out. It sounds far out, but it’s a situation that we’ve all heard of before. We all make mistakes.
We had prayer about this on Saturday morning and what the person needed, was the check itself on Monday and no later. Their bank was several hundred miles away so we didn’t want them to have to make and trip there and we wanted no bounced checks at all or NSF fees. We wanted the Post Office to give them favor and for their to be no interference as the check was slated for the wrong address.
We went before the throne of God in Jesus Name and we gave thanks. We made our prayer petition in a prayer of agreement. We believed that we received when we “asked” for it. We made a demand on the covenant and God honored our seemingly impossible prayer! Miraculously, on Monday, the person got their check and all is well!
YOU JUST NEED TO KNOW TODAY THAT GOD ANSWERS PRAYER AND NO GOOD THING WILL HE HOLD FROM THOSE WHOSE WALK IS BLAMELESS.
