What is Prayer…
The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much (James 5:16 KJV)
Simply put, Prayer is Talking to God…Prayer is Seeking God’s will…Prayer is Petitioning God…Prayer is Praising God…Prayer is Worshipping God…Prayer is Thanking God…Prayer is uniting yourself unto God with your whole soul, mind, and body…Prayer is the effective tool that unleashes God’s Power on Earth…Prayer is Protection…Prayer is Peace…Prayer is an act of Faith; and without Faith it is impossible to please God…Prayer is Joy…Prayer is Strength…Prayer is Love; for when we Love God we Pray unto Him…Prayer is Receiving God’s Love into our hearts; for when we Pray we accept God’s Love…Prayer is the ability to Overcome…Prayer is Healing…Prayer is Restoration…Prayer is Accepting God’s Will…Prayer is the Key to a Christian’s Life…
The Christian Life should be embedded in continuous, open Prayer before God…Prayer aligns the sinner with the Righteousness of God. Prayer aligns the Saint to the Will of God. Prayer, fervent prayer (fervent meaning extremely passionate) gets the sinner to God and God to the sinner. Oh, how we need more Prayer in our lives; in our world…The Bible is filled with Prayers of the Saints and for those seeking Salvation of God…We see miracles performed as the result of effective praying…Elijah “prayed earnestly that it might not rain; and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And, he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.” (James 5:17-18). What a demonstration of fervent, effective Prayer!
If any goal should be set before us, it should be the goal of reaching towards, possessing, and maintaining a fervent, effective prayer life…If we want to see “things” changed within our lives and within the lives of our loved ones it will take the fervent, effective prayers of a righteous man…And, man cannot be righteous outside of seeking God’s will for their lives…Oh, the JOY of Prayer! Just to know that we are communicating with the very God of Creation through His Son, Jesus Christ…The very ONE who rides upon the winds of time and the waves of life; Jesus the One and Only…Oh, yes, how Prayer can bring about passion to our hearts and lives…Sweet Hour of Prayer; Sweet Hour of Prayer…How we all need to steal away in Sweet Hour of Prayer…Amen.
May your prayer life forever be enriched with God’s presence and assurance as you seek His will in faithful communication unto Him…Amen.
Remember, God Loves You!
