PRAYER LIFE AMP IT UP

PRAYER LIFE – AMP IT UP

Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and He shall hear my voice.
Psalm 55:17 AKJV

The power of God and Prayer is real. We can talk or hear about God and Prayer so often that they become common place terminology. We can stop actually hearing God and prayer and associating them with as true reality or they become so surreal that they feel unreachable. 

Prayer is one of the most important parts of our relationship with God. Prayer is a time to praise Him, thank Him, and let our requests be known to Him. 

It is common practice to have prayer lines in most Christian organizations, prayer circles in Churches, or prayer partners among believers. We must be careful not to use prayer as an avenue to gossip or seek pity and attention. 

These are all great resources but our first prayer source should be prayer with God. 

God already knows our needs, Matthew 6:8, but prayer is an act of faith when we go to God with our requests and in the belief that He will answer.

It is no longer, after what Jesus did for us and the tearing of the veil, Matthew 27:51, necessary to have a priest or other person stand between us and God. In that one selfless act of Christ, we were granted direct access to pray to God. 

David said in Psalm 5:3 –
My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O Lord; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. 

We should raise our voice to God in prayer, with expectation, looking to praise Him. 

David continues in Psalm 5:8 – 
Lead me, O Lord, in thy righteousness because of mine enemies; make thy way straight before my face.

We should pray for guidance and answers to all things, giving Him all the glory when our deliverance comes.

We must have an ongoing, active prayer-life. It says I n 1 Thessalonians 5:17 – Pray without ceasing. 

The idea of prayer without ceasing confuses many people. They wonder how this can be possible and still live a “normal” life. 

Prayer without ceasing is an ongoing communion with God. It is a huge part of our relationship with God. He is our God and our Friend – how could we not talk to Him. Prayer is a relationship building practice that creates trust, strengthens faith, and removes doubt as we walk out our Christian life. 

Communion, according to the Dictionary, is the sharing or exchanging of intimate thoughts and feelings, especially when the exchange is on a mental or spiritual level. 

This definition is quite accurate. Prayer is so much more than forgive me for this, bless me with that – it is about relationship. 

We can pray/talk/share with Him throughout the day about what we feel, fear, think, hope, dream, desire, and whatever confuses or concerns us. 

We can safely open up and talk to Him about our most guarded thoughts, He knows them already, and seek clarity and His guidance. 

We must not become like those written about in Jeremiah 2:32 ….yet my people have forgotten me days without number.

God is always available, always listening, always waiting, always ready to talk with us and share His wisdom, teach us His Word, and guide us as we should go… if we will approach Him in all sincerity and ask. 

The human mind is always active. We can choose to fill our minds with the poison toxic thoughts of the world or with intimate conversations with our faithful and loving God. 

Make the choice and commit to praying more. 

Prayer may be in a combination of ways. Formal prayer is certainly appropriate, as referred to in Matthew 6:9-15, but also practice – prayer without ceasing – talking with God throughout your day, all day, about everything as if He is right there with you – because He is. 

If you do this, you will find it becomes a natural part of your relationship with God and your prayer life will become more personal. God will seem more tangible and real and not so unapproachable. You will look forward to prayer because God will become Someone you want to spend time with and talk with. You will be blessed beyond what you can imagine. 

Praying without ceasing is an ongoing, never ending conversation with God. Be sure to open your spiritual ears and eyes so you can hear and see His response. 

Start talking…….
