Prayer

Prayer is powerful instrument from God in our hands. It is really a mystery, why God allows His glory to settle in our hands, hands of unfaithful, foolish and week creatures as we certainly are. It was Gods choice to left us with the promise in Matthew 28:18-20, where Jesus told His disciples, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.” Then He continued “ I am with you always, to the end of the age” (ESV) This assurances are confirm in Revelation 2:26-27, to those who overcomes and does His will to the end, Jesus Christ consequently guarantee “to him … I will give authority over the nations.”

Prayer as a act of obedience is very important and powerful tool. God advises us to pray, He require His anointed ones to “ Ask of me and I will surely give the nations as your inheritance” (Psalm 2:8 NASB). Therefore Paul command churches he planted to “pray without ceasing” and to “pray at all times” (1 Thessalonians 5:17, Ephesians 6:18 NASB). James 5:16 tells us, that “The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results.” Also Mark 10:27 tells us that everything is possible with God. Therefore because of the great power there is nothing we cannot pray about it.

In Genesis 18:16-33 through Abraham’s experiences and through Jesus’ life in Matthew 26:36-39 and Mark 14:34-41 we can find that prayer builds our relationship with our Heavenly Father. Through this relationship with God by prayer He determinate his direction for us as we can see that in Matthew 7:7-11and Colossians 4:12. In 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 we read that the prayer is God’s will. God promises us that if we will acknowledge Him in all our ways He shall direct your paths’.

As the Holy Bible tells us we should pray without ceasing and in everything give thanks to the Lord. Therefore thank Lord for this opportunity to share your Gospel and be able to pray freely. By the prayer we are able overcome temptation (Luke 22:39-41, Matthew 6:13, 26-41), fighting with the spiritual warfare (Matthew 17:21, Ephesians 6:10-20) and we are able to accomplish God’s work as is written in John 14:12-14 “You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.” By this we can see that prayer is the way His greater works are getting done!
