THE NECESSITY OF PRAYER
"Pray continually"/ "Pray without ceasing"
Thessalonians A 5:17
"And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will,
he heareth us:
And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions
that we desired of him." 1 JOHN 5:14,15
"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish,and it will be done for you." JOHN 15:7
However we should not forget that God is just and he answers our prayer requests when they are according to His will.
For man to be able to communicate with God it is necessary to pray in the name of Jesus Christ.
But to be heard it is necessary for us to meet two requirements.The first one is the restoration of our relationship wiith God through true repentance.
When a man lives in sin his relationship with God suffers and his communication with Him
is no longer possible.
Jesus Christ himself encourages us:
"Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, khock and the
door will be opened to you . For everyone who asks receives, the one
who seeks finds, and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened "
The prayer that is accompanied by honesty and a
clean heart has the power to overturn difficult situations heal
sicknesses , CONQUER EVERYTHING!
"Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy?Let
them sing songs of praise. 14.Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the
elders of the church to pray over them and anoint them with oil in the
name of the Lord. 15. And the prayer offered in faith wilt make the sick
person well, the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned ,they will be
`forgiven.16.Therefore confess your sins to each other so that you may be
healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective"
The second requirement is to have a true,honest and sincere faith
and trust God that we are receiving what we asked for.
"Have faith in God" Jesus answered."Truly, l tell you,if anyone says to
this mountain "Go throw yourself into the sea "and does not doubt in
their heart but believes that what they say will happen ,it will be done
for them.Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer,believe
that you have received it, and it will be yours.'
"If you believe ,you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer "
