Prayer must be more than just the releasing of words; it is the outbreathing of the spirit within a man in Christ, uniting with the heart of the Father.
Prayer must become the expression of a life that desires to be drawn into the presence of Almighty God, our heavenly Father.
All of our needs, our concerns and our anxieties must not be the main issues why we pray, but only desiring to be where our heavenly Father is brings peace into our troubled hearts.
Lives troubles, trials and tribulations should not be the needs that drive us to pray, but having a knowledge that our heavenly Father’s ear is open to receive our cry, is the emphasis of our desire to enter through Jesus Christ into the presence of the Father, knowing that He delights in our being in Christ and having our right-standing with the Father through Jesus Christ.
Our praying is not one of striving to get Almighty God our heavenly Father to do something in our life; our praying must become the action of receiving the love of our Father bourne in the bosom of Jesus Christ and desiring to express our love with worship to our Father for the joy which He receives in us His children desiring to enter His presence.
Our praying must never become a means of trying to talk Almighty God into doing something in our lives, and our prayer must not be aimed at the Father’s reluctance to give, rather our praying in Jesus Christ is embracing our Father’s willingness and ability to supply our every need through being in Jesus Christ.
Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. “If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. John 14 v 13-14.
Truly, truly, I say to you, if you ask the Father for anything in My name, He will give it to you. “Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be made full. John 15 v 23-24.
“In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I will request of the Father on your behalf; for the Father, Himself loves you, because you have loved Me and have believed that I came forth from the Father. John 16 v 26-28.
