“We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.” I John 3:20-22 NASB

In reality there is only one way to prepare your heart for prayer and that is having a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. I Timothy 2:5 says, “For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.” Jesus is the one and only link between God and man. If we pray to or through anyone else we are wasting our time and blaspheming the very name of Jesus who paid the price for us to have relationship with God. James 5:16 tells us, “The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.” This now presents to us a major problem because the bible tells us, “There is no one righteous not even one.” (Romans 3:10). As a result of this problem we see our great need of Jesus.
Romans 3:22 tells us the righteousness of Jesus is applied to our lives when we place our faith in His sacrifice and Romans 3:26 lets us know, we are justified, (made righteous), through that same faith. Because of this amazing truth our prayer life is not dependent upon us, our abilities, or our righteousness-it is solely dependent on Jesus. When we pray, we pray through Jesus and His righteousness knowing that Jesus is personally carrying our prayers to the throne of the Father.
This does not however, give us a license to live as we choose and expect Jesus to be our errand boy at our beck and call. He is Lord! We need to live, breath, walk, talk, think, and exist with Him as our Lord. He died so we may live. The lives we live are to bring glory to Him and not ourselves. The prayers we pray to Him and through Him should honor Him.
Now, when the devil comes bringing about his lies and accusations condemning your heart, telling you that you are not worthy to pray, simply say back to him, “Your right devil, I’m not worthy, but Jesus is, and it is through Him I pray.” Satan doesn’t want you to pray because he knows a prayer warrior is destructive to his kingdom.
Therefore Christian, I challenge you to be the prayer warier that God has called you to be. Don’t stand in condemnation but in confidence knowing that your prayers are righteous through Jesus and will accomplish much.

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