Prayer Is Not an Option

In I Thessalonians 5:17 it says, “Pray without ceasing”.  Therefore, it is vital that we pray regularly and consistently.

Prayer is powerful, and when combined wit faith will yield supernatural results.  For example, suppose you have a stomachache, and you pray and ask God to heal your stomach; and 15 minutes later you notice your stomach has stopped hurting.  Because you asked God to heal you, you received your healing.  If you didn’t ask God, you would not have received your healing.

Many times people want God to do things in their life such as increase finances; cancel debts, and provide money to pay their mortgage, but they never ask God.  When you pray, you must make specific request to God.

Philippians 4:6 says Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” 

Matthew 6:5-8 says Also when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by people. Truly I tell you, they have their reward in full already.  But when you pray, go into your [most] private room, and, closing the door, pray to your Father, Who is in secret; and your Father, Who sees in secret, will reward you in the open.  And when you pray, do not heap up phrases (multiply words, repeating the same ones over and over) as the Gentiles do, for they think they will be heard for their much speaking.  Do not be like them, for your Father knows what you need before you ask Him.”

Also when you pray to God (Jesus Christ) pray with sincerity and believe that you have received what you have prayed for. Begin thanking God. For example, if you have a business and you ask God to send clients and referrals, begin thanking Him for sending them.  Then you will see it manifest.  One time I prayed for this and within 10 minutes of praying the phone rang, and the person on the other end became a client.  God has continued to send clients and referrals, as I am faithful to ask Him.

Mark 11:23 says  For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.”

I John 5:14-15 saysAnd this is the confidence (the assurance, the privilege of boldness) which we have in Him: [we are sure] that if we ask anything (make any request) according to His will (in agreement with His own plan), He listens to and hears us.  And if (since) we [positively] know that He listens to us in whatever we ask, we also know [with settled and absolute knowledge] that we have [granted us as our present possessions] the requests made of Him.”

 And whatever you ask for in prayer, having faith and [really] believing, you will receive.”  (Matthew 21:22)

 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”  (James 5:16)

Fervent means zeal; passion.  Therefore, you must have a zeal to pray for you and for others.  If you have lost your zeal, pray and ask God to restore your zeal to pray.

“Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly].”  (I Thessalonians 5:17)

I challenge you to pray fervently and without ceasing, believing that you have received you petitions of God.
