PRAYING FOR WHAT YOU WANT MATTER
Although at this 21st century, billons of people are actually confused about the usefulness of prayers especially when they in need of something. Christian philosopher and scientist blasé paschal (623_662) wrote that ‘the heart has it reasons of which reason knows noting ‘actually most people doesn’t believe in prayers in regards to when they needs something and which is the realest fact about life.

There will always be a difference, when prayer is involved ,simply because prayer has its reason, and it usefulness, especially when we learn from the prayer life of Jesus, despite the act that god gave us commandment about prayers ,it’s also one of the reason to pray when we desire for something urgent and also in references to the commandments god gave us, and if we want to follow he’s commandment ,we must definitely pray with reference to mattew 5:44 ’pray for those who persecute you Roman 12:12 “be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer and also in Ephesians 6:8 “and pray in the spirit on all occasions with all kind of prayers and requests, in order to be obedience to god because god had told us to pray, in references to timothy2:1 “i urge the first of all that request ,prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone” and we should also make Jesus our mentor in regards to praying regularly, apart from when we are in need of something, and also worshiping and praising God can be done through prayers and also with the confession of our sin which will lead to genuine repentance and it also helps in presenting our request to God. Simply because he cares for us and he wants to communicate with us through prayers, in reference to 2Chronicles 7:14 “if my people who are called by my name will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from there wicked ways then will i hear from heaven and will forgive their sins and will heal their lands”.
This King James Bible version is trying to tell us that even youth grow tired and weary and young men stumble and fall but those who hope in the lord will renew their strength because they will work and not be faint. I think during a matter, the best way is to approach the throne of grace with confidence so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need. Research has shown that without communication relationship fall apart, so therefore when we refuse to build our relationship with God through communication by prayers, the relationship will definitely fall apart which i believe that he won’t want to interfere in our matters in difficult times. So with this, building relationship with God should be our number one priority simply because God is so powerful and he is in control of everything in his creation. Prayers can clear human obstacles our of the way in order for God to work and it’s not as if God can’t work without our prayers but because he had established prayer as part of his plan of accomplishing his will in this world, this makes it more important during matter.
And also apart from this prayer gives us power over heaven in reference to 1Timothy 4:8 “for physical training is of some value but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and life to come” and also Mathew 26:41 says that “watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation the spirit is will is willing, but the body is weak.” Despite the fact that people really are confused about who will struggle with if it is against flesh and blood but the fact is that challenges in the spiritual realm are always against the rulers, against the authority, against the powers of the dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realm but through prayers we can easily become strong in the spiritual realm When I read the Book of Acts, I am embarrassed. Why does our brand of Christianity look so insipid compared to the be-lievers of the First Century? Where has the power gone? Has God changed, or have we? We’ve all heard the cop out that says, “The Book of Acts represents a different dispensation.” What a sad, self-serving attempt to excuse our current state of spiritual impotence!
When we read Acts, we should yearn to experience a return to their brand of Christianity. Yet, instead of copying them, we seem content with copying other modern churches that are “growing.” But why copy a copy, when you can copy the original (the Book of Acts)? In Acts, God was saving people every day.
Communities were transformed. People were healed. Demons were cast out. Miracles were commonplace. Churches sprouted up across the Roman Empire. Persecution was faced and overcome. What made them so different?
Some say they preached a purer Gospel. I disagree. Modern Evangelicals preach the same Gospel that was proclaimed in the First Century. We preach that Jesus was born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died an atoning death, and rose bodily from the grave. We preach that man is a sinner and stands guilty before God in need of salvation. We preach that God offers salvation by grace, through faith, in Jesus Christ alone, and the moment anyone repents of his sin, puts his faith in Jesus, and calls upon His name, that person is born again.
That’s the Gospel they preached, and the Gospel we preach.
Our lack of spiritual power in Christianity today is not due to the sermons we preach or the songs we sing. Rather, it is due to our lack of prayer. We do not pray like it matters. Jesus and His earliest followers prayed like it was important. We pray like it is inconvenient or inconsequential. Prayer was their priority. It is our postscript. We plan more than we pray. They prayed more than they planned. We gather to minister to one another. They gathered to minister to the Lord in prayer and fasting. Our focus is earthly, horizontal. Theirs was heavenly, vertical. They were wise enough to “pray the price.”
All of this is why I have written this 12-week Bible Study en-titled, “Pray Like It Matters.” I want to demonstrate from Scripture that every prayer we pray is significant. Through our prayers, God changes things. One life dedicated to prayer can do more good than any life dedicated to other so-called “noble,” worldly causes. An individual follower of Jesus who is committed to prayer is a fountain of life in a world of death. Likewise, the local church that becomes a house of prayer will be a spiritual powerhouse from which God’s mighty miracles will flow exponentially. PRAYER is what modern Christians and churches are missing – frequent, fervent, faithful prayer!
Most Christians want to pray but don’t know how. They are unable to carry on a simple, sustained, satisfying conversation with God. Thus, after a few minutes in prayer, they run out of things to say, get frustrated, and give up. Sound familiar?
Just as infants must be taught to talk, Christians must be taught to pray. Once you know how, prayer will be fulfilling, refreshing, and even fun.
A growing number of Christians today are aware that some-thing must be wrong. They know there has to be “more” to the Christian life than what they have experienced. That “more” is found through the discipline of prayer. These les-sons are a wakeup call for each individual, family, and church to become a “house of prayer.” When we begin to pray like Jesus and His early followers, then we will witness the power they experienced.
Today, we embark on what could be the greatest adventure of your life. Before we start, let’s pray the prayer of the early disciples: “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke 11 Although at this current century, billons of people cannot actually change their subconscious mind in order to make it to realign with their dream and desire ,thus the reason are not far fetch relating to their background ,environment ,mentally and their doctrine and also relating to living fully life in god’s world ,simply because the fact still remains that you cannot change your subconscious and to realign with your dreams and desires until you get to the point of conviction where you will accept the fact that you can never have anything better than what god has in plan for your life will reins struggle for there are a lot of people that has a lot of problems sets shown that struggling to find their place in life in relating to their dream and desire ,which sully led to depression and heartache ,mostly tie sit do evenly led to possibilities and opportunity and which doesn’t not work for most people’s plans of desires and
