A Christian's Prayer Life

A Christian’s Prayer Life

 

     The body of Christ is in a battle of spiritual warfare, our enemy, the devil and his demons are unseen, but they are powerful.  If we are suited up in our armor that Paul spoke of in Ephesians 6:12-17, we will be able to prevail against the devil and his army.

 

     In Ephesians 6:18, Paul, let’s the body of Christ know that “we should be praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints.”  Defeat or victory depends upon our ability to pray continuously, and to use our weapons of warfare.  The devil trembles when we pray.  When believers pray, it moves God to answer.  We must stay prayerful, and ask the Holy Spirit, to help us in our prayer life.  The Apostle Paul, said in the word, we do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit helps us to relate our prayers to God. Prayer is the key to the kingdom, and faith unlocks the door.  Prayer is a communication with God.  God speaks to us through the bible, and we speak to him through prayer, through trusting, and through believing that he will answer.  A confident prayer life is built on Christ and the works that he has done.

 

     Prayer is a request for the needs of others, as well as our own.  God promises to answer, but it must be according to his will.  God will answer when we forgive others, and when we ask in Jesus name.  We should not think that we will receive everything we ask for.  In God’s wisdom, he hears and answers in the way that is best for us, he knows what we have need for even before we ask, but some things we ask for we don’t really need.  Don’t just ask God for material things, because they are only temporary, but we need to be more focused on asking for spiritual things, such as, having a more personable relationship with him, or asking for spiritual growth or wisdom.   Whatever we pray to God, know that he hears us, he may delay us, but he want deny us of what we need.  God Bless.

      Prayer is essential in the Christian life, and God so loves it that heaven stands still for half an hour as he listens to the prayers of the saints. When I got that in my spirit, prayer and intercessory prayer came to the forefront of my relationship with the Lord, and it changed my life, and the Lord has manifested himself to me so many times as a result. Prayer Changes Things! Amen Sister!
