We have the assurance that God will answer us if we call upon Him. However, some folks are at a loss of what they are to pray about. Learning how to pray is a vital task for all believers. It is a responsibility we owe God and ourselves.
Praying for yourself alone makes prayer become uninteresting and stagnant. To get down to the insider secrets of powerful and result orientated, fulfilling prayer, here are the 3 Prayers Points that guarantee instant results and make the church a better representative of Christ in this evil world. Paul the Apostle is the author of the prayer points. Let's look at them:
1. Pray That Believers Walk Worthy Of The Lord: You can help your church grow in holiness if you consider this prayer point. Walking worthy of the Lord is the same as pleasing God in all we do. Imagine if through your prayers, believers around you begin to walk in the way of God. Think about how sinners will be willing to repent and believe in Christ as a result of love and holiness of the brethren. Think about your children turning a new leaf of life as a result of this kind of prayer. Think about the blessings that believers will get if you call continuously upon God on their behalf to walk worthy of God. 'Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth at the seat of the scornful'. Your prayer will make believers to obey the above scripture and receive the blessings that follow.
2. Pray That Believers Be Fruitful In Every Good Work: Being kind to the needy is a good work. Showing love to the destitute is a good work. Clothing the poor is a good work. Caring for the widow around us is a good work. Providing for the need of the brethren is a good work. Our world will be a better place and the church will have a better testimony if every member is fruitful in good works. Pray for it to be actualized.
3. Pray That Believers Increase In The Knowledge Of God: The more of the scripture believers understand, the better they will be ready to grow in righteousness, take correction, accept discipline, show love for God and man and walk in holiness. The power of darkness will crumble before the church of God and the gate of hell cannot prevail against it. When believers read and believe the word of God and put it into action, they will have good success and their light will shine in a dark world.
How fulfilled would you be if you make these prayer points part of your commitment in prayers?
