'Praying is Partner-ing With God'

It is a great day in our Christian pilgrimage whenever we realize that we are partners with God..but He is to be in control.
God wants us (and urges us) to be prayer partners with Him!

You have probably experienced it as well as I, finding that satan fights us hardest.....
at the point of prayer!
I was taught well about Prayer from my college pastor, Dr. E.F. 'Preacher' Hallock.
I later served with him as his campus pastor @ Oklahoma University.

'Preacher' wrote a wonderful book entitled, "Prayer and Promises".....the theme of most of his sermons during his 50+years as pastor of FBC Norman, Okla.
Our family has tried to make Prayer and Promises from God's Word, key in our own lives.

Prayer was first in 'Preacher's life! He believed that when we pray, we get what God can do. When we do not Pray, we get only what WE can do!

THE NEW TESTAMENT TEACHES THE FOLLOWING FOR EFFECTIVE PRAYING:
~ OPPORTUNITY given by God, so don't let it pass by without using.

~ ONENESS with God, but always remember that HE is 'boss'.

~ OPENNESS to God like a phone call, but don't hang up on what He has to share!
"Be still and know that He is God"

~ OBEDIENCE toward God.
God said it.....I believe it, that settles it....and I will obey!

~ OPTIMISTIC about God and His power to answer!
Remember, His timing is always best and comes when needed.
He can give you patience! We are to walk by Faith, not sight.

PLEASE REMEMBER THAT PRAYER IS:
~ a COMMAND....please obey!
~ a CRY that will be heard by your Heavenly Father!
~ a CONFESSION that brings salvation, forgiveness and if needed, restoration.

Someone called Prayer "the breathing of the Soul"

PRAYERS OF INTERCESSION are such blessings for our spirit....and for the aid of others.
It means a lot to hear someone say, "I'm praying for you".

For PRAYER to be effective, it must be a commitment.
The Lord's Prayer teaches this by leading us to say,
"Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven".

A part of this commitment is cooperation as we are laborers together with God.
Also remember, your PRAYERS must mean something to you.....
if they are to mean much to God.
Remember also that your future is as bright as the promises of God.

So get to know God, The Promiser....then know well His Word, The Book of Promises!

May 6th and May 23rd are National and Global days of PRAYER.
Please make EVERY DAY a Day of PRAYER!






If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

I too often forget that I have the opportunity to be with God in prayer all of the time. Thanks for reminding me again. Great article. Refreshing and a nice way to start the day. Jim

Thank you for another beautiful and encouraging article. Christ Himself tells un in Gal.6:2--Bear one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ. It is through prayer that we get to know Him and develop a love and a trust that no man can break. I think that you and La Moyne have proved this by the example of your lives. In His love, your friend, Sharon
