Word for Today: What, if I don’t know how to pray?
Ministry Of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS)
“Pray without ceasing” ( 1Thessalonians 5:17).
Blessed and joyful Sunday to the great people of God all over the world.
Apostle Paul admonished us to pray without ceasing (1Thessalonians 5:17).
Later, in the same chapter, he said, “Brethren, pray for us” ( 1Thessalonians 5:25).
JESUS Himself said:
Certain problems will not go away except through prayer & fasting ( Matthew 17:21).
Again, Jesus spoke through a parable that we should “always to pray, and not to faint” ( Luke 18:1).
What of if I don’t know how to pray? What do I do? If you are a Christian, struggling with prayer, you can start off by spiritually joining the 24 elders and the 4 divine creatures in heaven surrounding the throne of grace, to worship and appreciate JESUS at all times. The bible says, Day and night, they rest NOT. Join them to worship God in Christ with such powerful phrases as:
“Thou are worthy ” ( Revelations 4:11)
“Holy holy, holy, LORD God Almighty (Revelations 4:8)
“Blessed be your Holy name “( Psalm 113:2)
Never forget :
“Blood of Jesus ” (Revelations 12:11)
“Jesus is Lord”
“Thank you JESUS ”
Use the phrases repeatedly. If you can worship and appreciate God in Christ with these phrases for just 24 hours ( one day), JESUS Himself will teach you how to pray with the help of the Holy Spirit. Everyone can pray.
Many Christians do not have good understanding of the power and significance of prayer and fasting. Some Christians can even spend long hours ‘praying’ without a single word of God to back it up. Some simply recite what the word of God says, without applying the word of God to themselves. Some Christians only fast when their organisations call for corporate fasting, thereby denying themselves of regular source of power.
Prayer is communicating with God using the word of God. Not merely repeating what God has said in his word , but STANDING ON THE AUTHORITY of what God has promised or said, to declare what you want.
We pray that the spirit of ignorance in everyone reading this message be rooted up in Jesus name. Amen ( Mathew 15:13).
Beloved, every one can pray. Make the first move and the Holy Spirit of God will take over. If you are willing and obedient…Isaiah 1:19
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen” ( 1 Thessalonians 5:28).
