Prayer is the emergency call line to communicate with the Lord God. When we are in relationship with Jesus, we would like to talk from our heart and hear from Him everyday as mentioned in Jeremiah: 33. 3. Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and will show thee great things, and difficult, which thou knowest not.
Call onto the Lord as It’s your right as His children and diciples. This life line is available all the time and 24/7 and it is called prayer. 1 Thessalonians: 5. 17. pray without ceasing. Learn to ask from the Lord, seek first the Lord and pursue the Lord to His gates of Heaven as shown in Matthew: 7. 7. Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you:
Dont worry and be happy and bring everything to the Lord, He will work things out for you and let God lead you. Philippians: 4. 6. In nothing be anxious; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
We need to make time for God, so that we can build relationship with God as described in Mark: 1. 35. And in the morning, a great while before day, he rose up and went out, and departed into a desert place, and there prayed.
We need to have The Place when we pray, so that we it becomes a habit. Make it a routine to go to that quiet place so that we can concentrate on God. Because my relationship with God is special as depicted in Luke: 22. 39. And he came out, and went, as his custom was, unto the mount of Olives; and the disciples also followed him. 40. And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation. And also recorded in Mark: 7. 24. And from thence he arose, and went away into the borders of Tyre and Sidon. And he entered into a house, and would have no man know it; and he could not be hid.
4 steps for classic prayer method:
1. Adoration is to worship, praise God.
2. Confess is to ask for forgiveness for any trespasses and cleanse us of our sins. God said you are forgiven and shall sin no more.
3. Thanksgiving is Thanks God for help, bless, loving
4. Supplication as we pray we can bring our needs to the Lord.
Be consistent in your prayer, for Father God will not give you less, only give you the best. Says Colossians: 4. 2. Continue stedfastly in prayer, watching therein with thanksgiving; Bring your needs to the Lord and let God answer it bit by bit. Bring all your worries to Him and do not give up easily.
Besides prayer, Jesus commands His diciples to do and engage in the ministry of the Word. As Christ followers we need to mediate on the Word of God and enjoy God’s Word. Mentions Joshua: 1. 8. This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shalt meditate thereon day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. And also in 2 Timothy: 3. 16. Every scripture inspired of God [is] also profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness. And again in Psalm: 119. 105. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, And light unto my path. For the Bible is the book. of Life. Let’s take hold of God’s Word and it will change you for the better and start living for the God. He wants us to have the best and to pass a His blessings to others.
We have to read the Word of God in order to grow. Attending church celebrations and services alone will not grow your faith. We have to read the Word of God in order to grow our inner spirit. Let’s celebrate God’s Word by reading and mediate on the Word.
