Praying is entering into the Spiritual realm joining and participating in the divine life of Christ in us, discerning His desires. When we engage the Spirit in praying, we are partaking of the holy purposes and intentions of God.
Praying is letting go of all we want and putting our own will aside in sinking our thoughts and heart into the union with God's Spirit.
When we get in the way of praying not according to God's will and purposes, false hope is stirred and false prophecy pronounced ---- leading us and others astray. When our prayers lack spiritual discernment ----- they fall by the wayside, as seeds quickly blown away by the winds of self.
Praying is desiring what God desires ------ listening, hearing and heeding his desires in responding as Christ-ones.
Praying is more than requesting or asking for some 'need' to be supplied. We know God will supply all we need, but we must be discerning or our real need --- our spiritual need to remain deeply rooted in the life of Jesus as our source in learning how to pray according to His will.
We can do nothing apart from interconnecting in and with His life and this includes praying. (John 15:4)
Praying is done in secret and becomes a daily habit where prayer naturally flows from us throughout our days as we -------- dwell, abide, reside and remain bound in Christ's life as our fully supplied divine source of all we need or desire or want when entering into praying.
