It’s with great joy to bring this topic to you, for the word says, “Rejoice evermore”.
Because this mandate “Rejoice always” is only for the living souls after death is judgment.
Principles of prayer is what we have to look into. After the precept; Rejoice Evermore, we’ve found the deepest truth.
Which is the key to open doors of fortune. “Pray without ceasing” 1Thess.5:16 and 17.
To know how to pray its not just by praying, but to know the principles of prayer. Some of us are tirelessly pray on the mountain without any result, because the joy or prayer principles hath growth dim in our inner mind.
It’s one thing to pray and it’s another thing to have understanding of prayer. A soul that hate to pray he definitely become a prey to his enemy.
Prayer was and is so important in the life of believers. For whosoever bear the mark of Christ must be a lover of prayer.
Jesus spent all night on prayer mountain Luke6:12 confirm these. He said to his disciples pray, lest you enter into temptation.
To know how to pray you must first of all know the concept of prayer and how to present yourself on the prayer mountain.
The Holy Spirit do teach us how to pray, it is a right thing to learn how to pray. But, how do we present ourselves on the prayer altar?
When Jesus ceased from prayer, one of his disciples said, Lord, teach us to pray as John also taught his disciples, Luke11:1. In this chapter Jesus did not only taught his disciples how to pray, rather he put in them wisdom and understanding of pray. Jesus gave the principles of prayer which have to reveal them today.
1. OUR FATHER WHICH ART IN HEAVEN:
This is the beginning of our humbleness before the presence of the only Supreme God as we look up to His mercy. He is the only one who knew us inward and outwardly, he knew the deed secret of our heart. The only one that is able to exalt us in due time 1Peter5:6 Daniel2:22.
2. OUR PRAYERS MUST FLOW FROM OUR HEART:
If we want our prayer to be very effective, we must open up our heart to GOD without holding anything back Joel2:12-14.
3. HALLOWED BE THY NAME:
To come before Almighty God, we must be holy. For our God is awesome, holy, beautiful and excellent. Is a matchless God, so we have to let go all canality and put on a new man Psalm8:1 1Peter1:15 Ephesians4:24.
4. THY KINGDOM COME:
This is a way pressing forward to receive a new joy in Christ Jesus Luke15:7. The kingdom of God take place in our soul when we repent from our sins. The kingdom of God is a kingdom of joy, that’s major reason we need his kingdom in our life.
5. THY WILL BE DONE AS IN HEAVEN SO IN EARTH:
This happen when we ready to give up on earthly things and pick up the cross; which is the gospel message of Christ Jesus. With joy He never ceased to do the will of his father John4:34, 6:36-40.
6. GIVE US DAY BY DAY OUR DAILY BREAD:
Nothing but the most Important thing we all believers should pray often for The understanding of our spiritual food. As it is written man should not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God Matt.4:4.
7. FORGIVE US OUR SINS FOR WE ALSO FORGIVE EVERYONE THAT IS INDEBTED TO US:
Sin and unforgiveness is the strongest enemy that can bring us back empty handed from our prayer altar. It’s a spiritual hindrance Matthew5:23-24.
8. LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION BUT DELIVER US FROM EVIL:
We have to live wisely and fill with the word of God, to overcome the whale because days are full of evil. We failed the way we fail because we got too attracted by the worldly things (ungodly) which lead to untimely death, We live by the worldly system not according to the word of truth that make way to eternal life.
We felt incomplete if we haven’t attached to earthly things. We have all heard these warning and have it on our fingertips:
“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever 1John2:15-17
Isaiah3:16-26 4:1. Our GOD is the all Sufficient God, he will bless us when we abide in him and be a doer of his word.
