Pray With Faith
Prayer is an essential part of being a Christian. Some find it hard to come up with the words and others yet overflow with the words that they speak in prayer. Below you will see in Romans it tells us that the Holy Spirit makes intercession for us and actually prays to God for us. The Spirit knows what we need and knows how God wants to be prayed to. All of this according to the will of God. The Spirit will speak to God in groanings that we would not understand, but God does. So the important thing is to have faith and pray. If the spirit of God is in you He will hear your prayers. With this I am referring to believing in Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour. That He is the living Son of the one true living God. That God came to us in the form of a man, Jesus Christ, and died on the cross for our sins, actually becoming sin itself, while we where yet sinners and rose on the third day victorious over death. So that we, that trust in Him, shall never feel the sting of death but have everlasting, eternal life. We all get busy with our daily duties but put God first, seeking the Kingdom of God first in prayer and He will never leave our side. Each and everyday wake up with a joyful song of praise in your thoughts and go to the Lord in prayer. Our outlook on life is so much better when we put God first.
26: Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
27: And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God.
28: And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
17: But, beloved, remember ye the words which were spoken before of the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ;
18: How that they told you there should be mockers in the last time, who should walk after their own ungodly lusts.
19: These be they who separate themselves, sensual, having not the Spirit.
20: But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost,
21: Keep yourselves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life.
22: And of some have compassion, making a difference:
23: And others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment spotted by the flesh.
24: Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
25: To the only wise God our Saviour, be glory and majesty, dominion and power, both now and ever. Amen.
30: Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?
31: Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed?
32: (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things.
33: But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
34: Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
