Topic: Understanding Prayer [Seeds of Destiny 1 March 2019 Devotional]
It has been confirmed that prayer is a necessity in the life of a child of God; the lifestyle of a Christian is the lifestyle of prayer. However, many people do not actually understand what prayer is all about; they think that prayer only happens when there is a problem or need.
SCRIPTURE: After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen. Matthew 6:9-13
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Communion between man and His Maker happens on the platform of prayer.
It has been confirmed that prayer is a necessity in the life of a child of God; the lifestyle of a Christian is the lifestyle of prayer. However, many people do not actually understand what prayer is all about; they think that prayer only happens when there is a problem or need. Beloved, prayer is an act that should be done beyond just meeting one’s personal needs. Therefore, it is important to understand what prayer is all about.
Now, what is prayer?
1. Prayer is a platform for communion between God and man
Communion between man and His Maker happens on the platform of prayer (Matthew 6:9)
2. Prayer is the platform for the offering of Thanks, Praise and Worship to God (Matthew 6:9)
Another aspect of prayer is the prayer of thanksgiving, praise and worship; this is called the prayer of adoration. We do not only pray when we have needs; praise is part of prayer.
3. Prayer is the platform for the establishment of the Rule and Will of God in the Earth (Matthew 6:10)
Prayer is an avenue to establish the Will, Rule and Purpose of God in your life, family and the nation; it is the platform where you dethrone the purpose of the devil and enforce the rule of God.
4. Prayer is a platform for accessing our inheritance in God (Matthew 6:11).
At the place of prayer, you connect what God has in store for you. Prayer gives us access to our inheritance and what belongs to us in God.
Beloved, my counsel is, make up your mind to maximize the hour of prayer by focusing on the points outlined above whenever you pray.
Remember this: Communion between man and His Maker happens on the platform of prayer.
