The most important thing for Christians is pray. Non christians can pray to God too.
Praying is the only way to communicate with God. If you only read bible or following all the rules He had set and without praying, you are doing nothing!
Everything is going to fall without prayer. Devil doesn’t want Christians to pray, he will use his maximum level of destruction to spoil our initmate communication with God. He wants us to act like him, loves the world, the materials on Earth and hates God’s words and disobey Lord.
Prayer brings a communion between man and God.
“Let us then approach God’s throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive MERCY and find grace to HELP us in our time of need.”
We pray to receive God’s mercy and help. Everyone needs the help from God as well as His mercy, don’t we?
“Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enermy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”
Only when we pray, we will get instant answer from God. If you don’t pray, how you are expecting Him to give you since you did not ask for it? We are the child and God is our Father in the Heaven. If a child did not ask anything from his father, how does the father give him? God knows what we want BUT at the same time, He wants us to pray, to talk to him like how to speak to our biological father in the Earth. God loves us to speak to Him. Which father on earth hates his children to chit chat with him?
For your information, this is how prayer works..
1. When we pray, the holy spirit will ‘take’ our prayer to Jesus, the only Son of God.
2. Jesus is the autority (we pray in the name of Jesus)
3. He will then ‘hand over’ our prayer to His Father, also our Father in the Heaven.
4. Finally, God will answer our prayer immediately.
Pray –> Holy spirit –> Jesus –> God
Note that the Holy spirit is always by our side, guiding us.
Even when God answers our prayer, it doesn’t mean that we are going to receive an immediate action when it is not the right moment. God plans everything nicely for us, He makes the perfect plan. We may or may not understand the meaning behind His actions, however we must be strong in believing Him that HE ANSWERS OUR EVERY SINGLE PRAYER.
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak.”
We always have the strong thought to pray, we always willing to pray, but due to our physical weakness, we feel tired after our daily works, we did not pray when it’s time to speak to God. We fail. Actually, the weaker we are, the more the time we need to spend with God. God had sacrificed His one and only Son for us, to save us from our sins, why can’t we spend at least an hour a day to pray and talk to Him? He let His Son to come to this sinful world, nailed on the cross to pay for our debt, why can’t we pray to God everyday as a return of His grand gift? Praying doesn’t cost a penny nor requiring us to bleed to pray.
In conclusion, let us start praying everyday — Resolution for 2015!
