Prayer is one of the most powerful weapons God has given us, and looking ahead at 2021, I believe it has never been more important for God’s people to be on our knees. But knowing how to pray is not always easy. Jesus’ disciples felt the same confusion.
I love Luke 5:16 because it shows that just like you and me, Jesus needed a break from the demands of his busy life to recharge his batteries and spend time with his Heavenly Father.
The life of Christ is intended to give us examples we can follow and learn from. So, even though he was God incarnate, Jesus didn’t draw on his superpowers as the Son of God when it came to facing life’s challenges.
Instead, when he was exhausted or burdened or in need of spiritual refreshment, he would “slip away” to pray — plugging into the power, perception, and purpose that can only be found in God’s presence.
WHAT TI DO BEFORE PRAYER ACCORDING TO BIBLE
The bible is very clear on what to do before you open your mouth to Pray. First forgive those who have wronged you so that almighty God may forgive you your sins too. That way your prayers will be answered.
Mark 11: 24-26
” Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”
Now you know.
