Bible Strong-Prayer, January 2019

Psalm 116:2 Because he bends down to listen, I will pray as long as I have breath.

Prayer is a way to connect with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. One thing that is consistent throughout the Bible, is that God wants us depending on Him, throughout our life. He is our Father, and He wants to help us to live a victorious life, while we are on the earth. We surely can’t do that on our own.

John 15:5 Jesus said: I am the vine, ye are the branches, He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit, for without me ye can do nothing.

The Bible says that righteous people praying are powerful and effective. Something extraordinary happens when two or more people agree together in prayer.

Matthew 18:19 Jesus said: If two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.

We are encouraged to pray just as Jesus did. He placed great emphasis on praying to the Father.

Colossians 4:2 Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful.

Prayer and communicating helps bring us into relationship with God through Jesus. He tells us to ask for what we want. He says that some things we don’t have because we haven’t asked for them. Ask for anything you want. He will either say, yes, no or wait.

James 4:2 You have not because you ask not.

Believe that God is going to move in your life.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Rejoice always,  pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Matthew 6:9-14 Jesus said to pray like this:

After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.

Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread.

And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.

God Bless. Heal the broken-hearted, bind up all their wounds.
