PRAYER

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of the righteous man avails much.

James 5:16

Prayer is something that every religion seems to have in common, but what is it that makes that ours is different and effective? The believer prays with the consciousness that he’s not just praying to the Judge of the world but he’s praying to a Father!

Look at what Jesus said to his disciples when teaching them about prayer in Luke 11:2

“So he said to them, “when you pray, say: Our FATHER in heaven, hallowed be Your name…”

God is Father to us, and so prayer to us isn’t something we do to fulfil a religious practice or requirement, but rather to commune with our Father. Prayer is an opportunity to share fellowship with divinity.

We know there’s power made available when we pray. The Bible says, “our prayers avail much!” That’s amazing.

1 John 5:14-15

“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we asked of Him.”

You should pray better just Knowing, that the creator and master of the universe, hear you when you pray to him. That’s encouraging to pray!

FURTHER READING: PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7, 1 JOHN 5:14-15, EPHESIANS 5:18-20

CONFESSION: I THANK YOU FATHER FOR YOU ALWAYS HEAR ME. FROM NOW ONWARD, I AM CONSCIOUS THAT MY PRAYER WHEN UTTERED WHOLEHEARTEDLY, MAKES TREMENDOUS POWER AVAILABLE. EVEN AS I PRAY NOW, I MAKE TREMENDOUS POWER AVAILABLE, I AM BUILT UP LIKE AN EDIFICE, RECHARGED LIKE A BATTERY. HALLELUJAH.

THERE IS LOVE IN SHARING

      I shared this with someone today and we got to really talk about how people pray and the confidence we come to God in prayer. So she said most times when she prays, she feels like God doesn’t even know her voice. So she was encouraged when she saw the part of intimacy devotion today that says, you should pray better knowing that you are praying to the master of the universe and he hears you. God bless Pst Dayo Olusoga.
