Prayer


 

 

Let’s be encouraged my friends. The prayers of the Bible are an amazing gift from God and have much to teach us. They help us understand how Jesus, Job, Moses, Samuel, David, Isaiah, Jeremiah, Mary, Peter, Paul, and many others communicated with our Father in heaven. We should become more familiar with them as well.

These prayers can help us communicate with God more effectively. Just as Jesus used several of the David’s prayers in His final moments on the cross to fulfill the will of the Father. For example, Matthew 27:46 which says; At about three o’clock, Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli* lema sabachthani?” which means “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”*

We are no different, God expects us to do the same as Jesus did. We too can find in the prayers of Scripture, words that can help carry our thoughts and emotions to God. Just speak the words and they will arise. Luke 23:46 says; Then Jesus shouted, “Father, I entrust my spirit into your hands!” And with those words he breathed his last.

What do we accomplish by doing this? We demonstrate reverence, humility, and faith. When we use the prayer’s from God’s Word humbly and expectantly to encourage us in our own prayers, we open our hearts and lives to a deeper measure of faith, renewed strength, fresh blessingsLighthouse, and God’s supernatural power.

God is extending us an invitation to be closer to Him through the prayers of the Bible.  Romans 8:26 says; And the Holy Spirit helps us in our weakness. We need to lift our eyes up to the hills and know where our strength comes from. It comes from God and God alone.

As we pray God’s word from our hearts back to him, the Holy Spirit breaths new life into our prayers and into us. So be encouraged my friends, God loves us that much. Be blessed my friends.

About spiritministries

I am a man who has learned not to rely on my own understanding the hard way. God revealed himself to me two and a half years before I got out of prison. It's the greatest thing that has ever happened to me. There is truly only one way and that is to have a relationship with God. Since my release S.P.I.R.I.T Ministries has came to fruition. We meet every Wednesday night at 7p.m. God asked me to write a book, in 18 months I finished Rock Bottom; Inspired by God, He provided me with a web blog, thank you Andrew, as you can see, I am a motivational-inspirational speaker, and singer. We now have a band known as The Un-Scene, you can find the link on my web site and check it out on face book. I am just a man who was given true life while in prison, freedom, salvation, and unspeakable joy by the grace of God. We go many places to speak and sing for the glory of God. I just want to share what God has done in my life that you may have the opportunity to experience the same joy He gave me. I give God all the glory for everything in my life for I couldn't accomplish anything a part from Him. If ye shall know the truth, the truth shall set you free, John 8:32. If you would like to hear us just contact me and God willing we will remain obedient. God bless you all.
