Sometimes we donít realize how important it is to pray
We continuously forget and think God wonít mind for today
That since He knows everything about us that He knows what we want to say
Going about our normal lives and putting prayer aside with such haste
Others hate and curse God and think that He doesnít care about them
So they donít pray because they also donít have faith, which we need in order to do it
Telling themselves that everything bad that has happened to them is because of the Lord
So they decide to hold a grudge and tell themselves that the Lord is false
Others donít pray because they donít know Him, but they are searching for and missing something
For without the Lord you cannot feel complete, there seems to be a void in your life that needs to be sealed!!
But as Christians we constantly pray, that the Lord will show his mercy and reveal Him self to us all
That we will receive eternal victory, and stand together as one loving family in the Lord!!!
Others donít pray because they have been waiting on the Lord
Asking him for a break through that never seemed to come
Then one day they decided that the Lord doesnít answer prayers
But letís ask ourselves did we really need or deserve those things we wanted and was it his will??
Because the Lord knows everything about his sheep, including what they really need
But sometimes we block blessings by our actions and state of mind
Which may not be worthy and God may think that you are not ready for your desire
Most times God will deliver an even greater break through that you never imagined, but you need to stay strong, pray, have faith and continue to wait on Him!!!
Always believing that he will take care of you and his thoughts are greater than ours
Others donít pray because they are tormented by their guilt
Thinking that they are not worthy and so full of sin, and that they cannot gaze upon the beauty of Christ
But didnít Jesus die for us for that cause, and believe me the Lord understands that we truly fall short
But the more you reside in your guilt the more damage you cause, to your essential walk with the Lord
We may not pray for many other reasons, but who really is behind this illusion??
Praying is our way of talking to the Lord, if you donít talk to Him how will He know
What you truly want to say and how grateful, faithful and obedient you are??
Others pray in tongues that the devil can not hear, so at whose benefit is it when you donít stop to pray??
Prayer is a powerful thing, be it that you pray in your language or in tongues
It is so powerful as long as you believe that what you have prayed for shall come to pass!!
It astonishingly changes situations; through prayer a lost soul may enter the great Kingdom and miracles can happen
And is it not through prayer that we are saved, got redemption and received Jesus??
As long as you pray with your whole heart the Lord will answer your prayers
As you truly have to make a stand and be committed as the Lord looks at the hearts treasures!!!
He is a faithful God and will manifest his word, upon your life and for what you asked for
Itís through praying for each other and ourselves, that we defeat the devil and rebuke his plans of evil!!!
It truly is prayer that keeps us united, in union with God and all His people
The Lord speaks to us when we are praying, giving us encouragement or giving us direction on what he asks of us
Because of praying you may read the book of life and God will speak to you through it and give you the answer and sign that you needed to hear from Him
So we need to continuously be in prayer, keeping the Lord close to us and the devil in despair!!!!!
It doesnít matter what you going through or where youíve been
God is ready and waiting to hear from you so just get down on your knees, and tell him how you truly feel!!
