Prayer

The most important thing a born again Christian can do is to pray – Chuck Smith

Genuine and sincere prayer to God reflects the reality that Christianity is not a religion, but rather, a relationship. It is also a conduit through which God chooses to openly display Himself in the lives of His children by wonderful and miraculous works. Of course, to have this prayer relationship with God you must first believe in the Gospel. It’s through personal faith in the sacrifice and resurrection of Jesus Christ that you are forgiven, cleansed of your sins and enabled to enter the presence of God in prayer. While your prayer life is a daily dialogue with God it is also a daily discipline. Jesus exhorted His disciples to get alone with God, to avoid pretentious prayers full of empty, heartless repetition. Prayer should be dynamic and multi-faceted. In fact, He gave his disciples a model prayer as an outline to follow in Matthew 6:5-15.

1. Relationship: Our Father in heaven. Remember that having believed in Jesus and His gospel you now approach God as His child. You don’t come on the basis of your work but on the basis of His work for you.

2. Reverence: Hallowed be your name. While we can be genuine and sincerely open with God without pretense, we remember simultaneously that we are addressing the Holy God who is the Maker of the universe and also our Maker. Therefore, we honor Him and remember that His very name is holy and to be hallowed. In a Christian culture that has gone overboard in an effort to make God relevant and relatable, we need to consider the words of the seraphim that fly around His throne day and night declaring, “Holy, Holy, Holy is the LORD of Hosts; The whole earth is full of His glory!” (Isaiah 6:3).

3. Submission: Your kingdom come Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. As Kingdom Citizens we are no longer pursuing our kingdom but His kingdom. Our chief desire is to see God’s will come to pass on earth in our generation. We have aligned ourselves with what matters to Him and have consequently submitted and surrendered completely to Him.

4. Dependence: Give us this day our daily bread. Humble dependence upon God was the pattern that Jesus laid down for us to follow. The truth is that as much as we would like to think we are in control, that is simply an illusion. GOD IS IN CONTROL. As we acknowledge this we learn daily, humble dependence upon Him to supply our needs and avoid the tendency to live independently from Him. You may be a mover and a shaker, you may have great position and influence, but the truth is you cannot even breathe without Him.

5. Confession: And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Confession of your sins is where your relationship with God began but it is a continuous part of your relationship with Him. Daily confession cleanses you, reminds you of the importance of walking in righteousness, and helps you to remember how grave the issue of sin is to God. Your sin is what sent Christ to the cross.

6. Deliverance: Lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. Paul said that our weapons of warfare are not fleshly in nature but mighty in God (2 Corinthians 10:4). God is your deliverer. He delivers you to victory over your adversary but that battle is not won in your power. It is won in His power. It is not a physical fight. It is a spiritual fight against wicked principalities and powers. And Christ alone has the power to make you more than a conqueror (Ephesians 6:10-20, Zechariah 4:6, Romans 8:37).

7. Worship: For Yours is the kingdom, power, glory forever AMEN. Worship is often consigned to corporate gatherings, but the adoration of God and the exaltation and affirmation of His beauty and magnificence is daily and forever. It is so important to get our eyes off of ourselves and our struggles and onto the Incomparable One. Your greatest need is to worship and you have been created to worship the Triune God.

8. Integrity: If you do not forgive others neither will your Father in heaven forgive you. God’s expectation is that as you come to Him asking for forgiveness, grace, and mercy, you are also freely giving those to the people who are asking you for them! Jesus was adamant about His disdain for hypocrisy and double standards in the lives of His disciples.

Sober this week! It’s only because of your prayers for me that I am clean. Thank you.

Our middle daughter, McKenzie, is overworked and gets depressed from time to time. May she reach out to God and ask him for help.

Thank you!

I work at the VA Hospital here in Vegas and I’m praying that the Lord will grant me the opportunity to work on a day-shift schedule. I’m supposed to work in the evenings but that will stop me from my ability to join home fellowships and another Bible study that I am often asked to teach. There’s a position that will soon be posted for day-shift that I’m qualified for and I pray that it will be granted to me. Thank you

Prayer please for my relationship, with Christian Sister, long time friend, and prayer partner, who broke confidentiality again, in relationship to praying for our sons, who are best friends. We have been praying for well being for my son, and because he is backslidden and saved, and her son, backslidden but not as much as mine. My son, for almost 20 years doesn't want me to have relationship with almost everyone he knows, as Chrisitanity is not a priority, including my Christian Sister here, so I don't tell him I am, or he would, cut off our communicatin, and he truly thinks I don't measure up, and he feels now he was forced into becoming a believer, and that I am a gossip and a liar, and a hippocrite, and then he married unbeliever, getting divorced from now. My son truly gave his heart to Jesus at young age and served for years. Please pray for me too, and with me. My heart is truly broken before God for many years. My son tells everybody in my family, how I don't measure up, and gets agreement from many, to support his worldly ways, and to have more people in his life. My son and I are still in communication, Praise God!!

Prayer for my Sister, involved in cults, very bad worldly behavior, caused serious division, in my immediate family for many years. We have all been victimized and hurt by her at one point, most of us have learned from, I have, but sadly one of my 2 children and her 2 children best said, are under her spell. Please pray for my son to be set free, he is backslidden, and vulnverable. Please pray God breaks those chains, puts an immediate end to all this, and for Him

to get all the Glory, Honor and Praise. It doesn't belong to her. Many are suffering the long term affects of this, some damaged, more than others, Me and my children are in the More category, as unexpectedly, she went after me, the widow, and my fatherless children when we were most vulnerable. She wants to be the Matriarch of the family best said over everyone. We do continue to love her. Many from a distance. We desperately need God to intervene in a big way here. God knows all.

I can only pray for her. She wants nothing to do with me. I do stay clear of her, and please pray for all our safety, because her behavior is unpredictable, if she doesn't get her way. Importantly, please pray for my younger son, to be set free from the grip my sister has with him, causing division with his family and his safety in that process.

Praise Report! Thank you for praying. My son, is doing well, going through his divorce, and God brought us together, with him on Facetime over the weekend, and he is more stable, and God gave us all wisdom, and I see my son, healing emotionally,and finding peace, and some joy. We had him laughing, after a long time of him not. I saw God's hand on him, planning a roadtrip now, with his Christian buddy, of many years. They are both backsliden. His buddy not so much. Pray this trip goes well.
