Closer to God in Prayer
“Watch and pray so that you will not fall into temptation. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Matthew 26:41
Prayer is a spiritual weapon God has given us to wage warfare. Prayer is relationship with the Godhead. It is coming and asking for help, or talking to God about something that bothers us. Prayer interrupts Satan’s plan for evil!
If you want to have an effective prayer life, develop a good personal relationship with the Father. Know that He loves you, that He is full of mercy, that He will help you. Get to know Jesus. He is your Friend. He died for you. Get to know the Holy Spirit. He is with you all the time as your Helper. Let Him help you.
All kinds of prayer are to be used in our walk with God. There is the prayer of agreement between two people, and also, the united prayer of a group of people. There are prayers of thanksgiving, praise and worship, petition, intercession, commitment, and consecration. Whatever kind of prayer you bring, learn to fill your prayers with the Word of God and offer them with the assurance that God keeps His Word.
We tend to put off praying, but I recommend that you pray right away, any time you see or think of a need.
