Prayer Changes Things

Prayer is inevitably the one thing that keeps us in constant contact with God, prayer is an act of obedience. Throughout the bible, we see how often it states to pray. Romans 12:10-12 states,
“Be kindly affectioned one to another with brotherly love; in honor preferring one another; Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer.” When we continue in prayer with God our relationship with him grows deeper, he will begin to reveal our gifts to us, and our faith will be strengthened. Prayer brings strength to us and helps us to understand what God is trying to say to us. When we as a people truly understand that by bowing down and submitting ourselves unto God thru his son Jesus Christ we will gain more clarity and he will begin to entrust us with more based upon our faith. God is a wonderful God who only wants us to be closer to him, when we give him more of us, he will give us more of him. Prayer builds our faith, trust, and hope in God; keep praying because God hears you.

Prayer, Purpose, and Power.

Recently I had a revelation about myself; I am terrible at keeping in contact with people and checking in on them, I am terrible at maintaining relationships. One of my best friends, Londyn, wrote me a letter that opened my eyes to this revelation. In this letter, she detailed a timeline of our friendship, recalling the times I had stopped returning her calls, checking in on her and spending time with her altogether. She explained to me that she felt that our relationship had died because of my lack attention to it. I am currently in the process of learning that our personal life often mirrors our spiritual one. This letter caused me to reexamine not only my relationship with Londyn but my relationship with God. I realized I was neglecting my platonic relationships, as well as neglecting my spiritual walk.

When I examined my life, I realized that I fell out of a relationship with God because I stopped talking to him. Any relationship that you don’t water with attention, will eventually wither up and die; so was the truth for neglecting my private time with God. Recently I made the commitment to pray more and it has made all the difference in my spiritual journey. Prayer is the thing that fortifies and anchors me in God. It’s that thing that truly brings me out of whatever I am experiencing in life and allows me to enter his presence; focusing my mind on God and his promises, not the challenges.

How to pray.
Initially, my prayers started with me acting like Jesus was in the passenger seat of my car. I would talk to him about everything from how my day went, to my deepest problems. I carried that mentality where ever I went; I made a habit of talking to Jesus. I wanted him to be more real to me than the people I spoke to every day. Eventually, I started to carve out specific times of the day to center my mind and focus on God. Now it has evolved into the time where I clear my mind and my heart and not only speak to God but listen. It is in my prayer time that I hear the hopes and dream that God has for me. Praying often and consistently has allowed God to download his purpose for my life into me. In 2 Chronicles 7:14 it states, “ if my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” Prayer is the time where we humble ourselves, seek the face of God, then watch him forgive and heal us. In Prayer, is Power.

How do I Pray?

Prayer is an important part of your Spiritual growth. It is two-way communication with God. We can talk to the Lord any time and any place. In prayer, God reveals His plans and purpose for our lives. It is in prayer where we receive direction, spiritual warfare strategies and wisdom.

The Power of Prayer

Prayer is one of the things the enemy tries to keep the believer from doing, because even he knows the POWER prayer holds. Prayer can sometimes be viewed as a dutiful task; however, through seeking God and establishing true relationship with Him, the believer finds prayer to be a lifestyle, relationship, and communication with the Father. Prayer was the only thing recorded that the disciples sought from Jesus. They had the opportunity to ask Jesus anything, and they asked, “Master, teach us to pray”.
