SHOULD WE EVER BE DONE PRAYING?
I have been doing a lot of this lately. The gift of prayer is one I hold dear to my heart. We can be in the presence of God in an instant. Jesus mediates on our behalf and is our Intercessor. I believe God desperately wants His people to communicate with Him and ask Him for help. He wants us to depend on His loving kindness. Prayer is a way to build an intimate relationship with our God.
When Praying, be sure you acknowledge who He is…. our Mighty and Loving God. Praise His Name and thank Him for His faithfulness and wisdom. Offer up your personal petitions but don’t forget to pray for others. Finally, be sure you offer up a fervent prayer, asking that His will would be your will.
1 TIMOTHY 2:5 (NIV) For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus,
James 5:16 (NIV)
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
