Today’s Inspiration: “But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, do not keep on babbling like pagans, for they think they will be heard because of their many words. Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask him.” Matthew 6:6-8 NIV.
Why do we need to pray when God knows everything in our lives? This is where people get confused. Prayer is not asking God for what we want, but to seek God’s will and purpose for what He desires, called and created us to be and to fulfil. Jeremiah 1:5. Prayer is developing a personal relationship with God, like conversing with someone you love and desire to speak to daily, not only on Sundays or prayer meetings. Why in the secret? It is because God desires to answer your prayers personally, specifically, and intentionally so that His love and glory is revealed powerfully. Therefore don’t pray religious prayers or techniques or mantras, they are for idols who cannot talk or move. There is no other gods that the one Almighty Holy God who loves us and gave His only Son Jesus Christ to died for us so that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 Prayer of faith is power for mountain moving, bondage breaking, stronghold pulling, bitterness uprooting, devil crushing, and sickness healing. Praise God!
Prayer: O Lord my God, Holy is your Name and great is thy faithfulness and grace who taught me how to pray like you did. Sanctify me with your Word and cloth me with your righteousness daily. Let your anointing fall on me with thy Holy Spirit, fill my lips with thy prophetic unction and show me in thy glorious vision to fulfil thy power in your promises, for your Word shall not turn back void and come to pass, in Jesus' Name, Amen.
