Prayer is a very serious gift that God gives to all them who believe in Him. Prayer determines the quality of our life and it invites God into our lives. Prayer is so important, God had all the prayers we need recorded in His Bible. In the book of Ephesians He tells us to take the Word of God praying.
Hebrews 1:3 Jesus is upholding all things by the power of His Word and has sat down on the right hand of the Father Himself.
Jesus spoke the word His Father gave Him and He was able to uphold or carry everything He was sent to accomplish. Jesus did not know where to go or what to do until He prayed, the Father would give Him an assignment and the empowerment. The Jews were dead set on killing Him but His prayers sustained Him. His prayer life was so successful that His disciples came to Him and asked Him to teach them how to pray.
Romans 10:9 Confess with your mouth (pray) the Lordship of Jesus, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead and you will be saved.
Your life depends on your willingness to pray to God and ask Him to save you. The sinners prayer is the beginning of your prayer life, you must continue to pray in order to maintain your new life in Christ. The devil hates everyone who bows their heart to the loving God, he wants all your attention and affection. He will do everything he can to separate you from God because he is the only alternative. Prayer is our divine connection to God, there is no other system in the entire world. There is no middle man, we are divinely tapped into the very heart of our Lord and Savior. Some religions pray to Mary or other so called saints, this sounds very spiritual but none of these are true.
Ephesians 6:18 Do all this in prayer, asking for God‘s help. Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason keep alert and never give up, pray always for all God‘s people.
Seven days without prayer makes one weak. How do we access the promises of our Father who art in Heaven if we don’t consult with Him? If we don’t pray we are never sure of what God’s will is for our life nor how we obtain it. Prayer is so important the Father sent the Holy Ghost to lead us in the prayer we need the most at the time. The Jews put Peter in jail planning to kill him in the next few days, but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him. While the church was praying, an angel went into the prison and got Peter out. Peter went to the church where they were praying for him and they were in shock to see Peter knocking on their door. Our job is to pray, it’s God’s responsibility to hear and answer our prayer however He sees fit. We must never tell God how we want Him to answer our prayers, just pray and let Him be God.
1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing.
The Bible instructs us to establish a daily prayer life and never quit, our lives depend on our willingness to take the Word of God praying. Sometimes it’s hard to pray because the devil knows he will be dealt with after you pray, but don’t let him stop you because he can’t.
