Why do we pray and what do we obtain by praying?
Prayer is our general chatting with our Father God and the Holy Spirit. It is our simple way of having a conversation with the deity whom we love and adore.
Whenever you talk with God just be yourself, open and honest, for our Father God and the Holy Spirit already knows before we ask, what is in our heart and what we need.
Prayer is our means of celebrating God, and a means of reinforcing our connection to God. Prayer reinforces our faith. We focus on talking to God and through our faith we are able to help others.
When we pray something magical happens, as we are stand in awe in the presence of an awesome, Almighty, All powerful and all-knowing God.
We may not see or feel and cannot explain it, and we are reassured that God is listening. He is a God that neither slumbers nor sleeps and is aware of every single moment of our lives that was, and is, and is yet to come.
Prayer creates miracles, often as soon as we open our mouth to pray. Prayer transforms lives and changes the world. And in many churches, wherever there is a need, people come together and pray or arrange a prayer chain.
People are constantly praying for that particular situation until they receive an answer. In the Old Testament people went up the mountain to pray and later met in the temples and spent hours praying. Sometimes it may not be the answer we want, but answers come to us in God’s divine timing and according to His will.
In our Christian walk we have witnessed and experienced prayer at work, time and time again. Jesus sits on the right hand of God and intercedes for us. So we too must intercede for others.
Set aside time in your church, to come to Intercession and pray for others when we do that God will take care of our needs.
When we pray together we create tremendous power and energy. The force behind that power is love. Love for each other and love for God; the commandment that Jesus emphasized.
Many people only pray when they want something. I am not saying you should not ask God for what you need but that should not be the only time that you pray.
The disciples met in the upper room and prayed and waited until they received the Holy Spirit. And receive it in all its power they did. Magnificent wonder working power of God as they prayed poured down upon them, in all its might from the Holy Spirit.
This was a powerful answer to their waiting and watching and praying. This was the glory of our living God, whose promises are always fulfilled
Prayer is a way for us to become closer to God, and to celebrate His presence in our lives. We should pray for the joy we receive from being in His presence and because we enjoy talking to God. We love talking to people we love so what is different from talking to God whom we profess to love.
Regular prayer makes you comfortable with God and thus talking to Him will be much easier, more frequent and more powerful. Our prayers are powerful when we pray in the Spirit of Thy will, not mine be done.
Remember always that it is God’s will that is important, and not our own will!
With many peaceful blessings
