|the very key to man spirtual well being is praying from earnest hearts|
The effects of prayer First off what is prayer? Praying is the very key and supplication to God, a person who has and active earnest prayer life this will guarantee a close communion with the lord, ..Did Jesus pray? All threw the bible you will find the lord Jesus Christ in praying Jesus taught us to pray , he prayed along his earthly journey and left us and example of the importance of preying in the life of the believers.. Why did Jesus pray ? He is the son of the living God and he prayed unto his father for strength and guidance . Showing us the reason that folks need and active prayer life, if Jesus prayed don't this teach us that we must pray because we are known to be weak human flesh creatures. Surely in need of help and guidance.. How should Christian pray ? Preying from the depths of the heart in earnest , seeking help from deep sincere longing from the heart.. A dry spoken prayer not from the earnest of heart is useless and to no avail. And vein.. Show me a person who has a prayer life and I will show you a Christian who is successful in all his ways. Show me a person that never prays and I will show you a weak unsuccessful Christian How often does folks forget to have prayer in their lives? And how often does folks forget the importance of talking to God, God is the source of men strength, and can help man if he ask God from his whole and earnest heart... Be honest with yourself how many times have you actually poured out your heart before God in earnest prayer . Please don't fool yourself and lie to yourself and to God...if you like most and will be honest you prayer life is weak .. I would say that seventy percent of Christians has weak prayer life , and every one wonders what wrong in the spiritual lives of many professed Christians. Before I got saved and God converted my heart I had no love for anyone of anything on hearth, but when I confessed to God my sins and acknowledge myself as a sinner in need of God grace and forgiveness, we must hold on the facts that God wants good for our lives, he want us the love him from the whole hearts . Above all others .. He desires our love, as we desire love from others, can't we see all that God wants is our love and devotion to him.. This is what God is asking from each of us .. Is this too hard for us to do is simply love God, and more love thy neighbor as thy loves thyself .. What happens when we love God. ? Results we then love each other, love bounces from God to us and then to others ...love is the most powerful emotion know to man.. God is love.. And love is God... its just that simple!! It two day before Christmas and may we go back to the birth of the lord Jesus Christ who was born In a barn where cattle were kept and other beast of the field .. There were no room in the inn ... for Mary to give birth to the king of kings and lord of lords,. Just like today folks have no room for the lord Jesus in their lives.. No time for praying. No time to worship, no time to spare. Let us go back to the garden when Jesus was awaiting the arrest of the Romans , he preyed in that garden , because he needed strength to bare the burden of dieing for our sins. Let us remember he was In the form of fleshly man, who could feel pain and sorrow just as any fleshly man can feel, he dreaded the cross because he was flesh like we all are... did the spike hold him to the cross? No it was the love of mankind and his father God that held him to the cross. Our sins put the scars in his precious hands.. We nailed the spikes of . Our sins in his hand's we caused the pain and grief he suffered ... we are the guilty ...we caused him pain and death .. If he prayed . Should we pray ? The question is simply to answer .. May the lord be with you and your family and help you to remember to prey . And to seek God guidance that you might have strength to live in this sinful world . In peace and joy, If you would be so kind give me and email and say hello to and old mountain preacher at Mcqueen@mail.com Tweet
