Jesus said PRAY
Jesus not only lived a magnificent life of much prayer, and continues to intercede for us as our Great High Priest today, He emphasized the importance of prayer to His followers! He said that men ought always to pray and not faint. In other words, we should make prayer our daily priority, staying connected to God. Jesus gives us the plan in Matthew 7:7. "Ask, and you shall receive. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened." The Holy Spirit will teach us all we need to know about prayer.
If we are to live well for Christ and bring His life to this world, we must be people who learn to pray like our Master. He knew we would need much strength and endurance for the journey and so He teaches us to pray. Remember the Lord's Prayer in Matthew 6, ".....Give us this day, our daily bread." Each day requires a fresh supply from God. Every believer can learn to pray well! We must be alert in it. It is the place of communion with our God, it is the well of refreshing and strength, it is the engine of God's plans going forth in the earth, it is the source of true wisdom and discernment, it is the place where we obtain victory over sin and self, it is victorious battlefield of the church against the forces of hell.
Prayer is our hearts lifted in thanksgiving and praise. Prayer is waiting, listening, receiving from Him. Prayer is our outstretched hands to our Father for help. Prayer is us taking our place with the authority He has given us to establish His purposes in this Earth and push back spiritual darkness. Prayer is walking by faith and not by sight. I believe our King said it like this, When you pray, dear ones, go into your room and shut your door and pray to your Father...who sees in secret and will reward you openly. Make it your habit to close the door on the clamor business of life and pray. Prayer never happens by accident. It is always intentional. He will supply all. He IS your supply, and your ALL IN ALL.
