As Christians we NEED to pray! There are many Christians today that don’t realise how vital prayer is. Then, we get people who overthink prayer. They make it a super spiritual and legalistic thing when it is not. Prayer is simply talking to God.
We can talk to God about anything and everything. It is such a blessing for me to be able to have a relationship with God. Without prayer there is very little we can do. It is also very important to believe while you pray. Believe that you have already received what you asked for and that you already healed. Sooner or later you will be healed! You will be restored. All you have to do is just B-E-L-I-E-V-E!
We are made righteous through Jesus Christ, our salvation. We can have a relationship with God because of Jesus. When Jesus died the terrible death on the cross, the curtain was torn in two from top to bottom. That happened so that we could have a relationship with God.
Ask and keep on asking and it will be given to you; seek and keep on seeking and you will find; knock and keep on knocking and the door will be opened to you – Matthew 7:7
We can go to God in prayer because we are made right with God through Jesus. God hears our prayers and He said that our prayers will never return void. God also said we should pray about everything! Philippians 4:6 explains what it means to be a prayer warrior.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. 7 Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus – Philippians 4:6-7 (NLT)
As Christians we need to rise up and pray like never before. The world needs prayer now! Not tomorrow, not in a week’s time, NOW!
Pray for everyone and everything, even your enemies! When you don’t know how or what to pray, pray like this:
The Lord’s Prayer
9 “Pray, then, in this way:
10 ‘Our Father who is in heaven,
Hallowed be Your name.
‘Your kingdom come,
Your will be done
On earth as it is in heaven.
11 ‘Give us this day our daily bread.
12 ‘And forgive us our debts, as we have forgiven our debtors[letting go of both the wrong and the resentment].
13 ‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen – Matthew 6:9-13
Don’t make a mistake by over thinking prayer. Just talk to God, He wants to hear from you!
