HOUR OF POWER

Although God is all-powerful and all-knowing, He has chosen to let us help Him change the world through our prayers. Paul urges us to pray for each other and for our leader in our church. Our earnest prayers will have powerful results.

"I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone." 1 Timothy 2:1

Everyone prays differently. For the past few weeks we’ve shared a 12 step plan for praying using scriptures. May these 12 suggestions help all of us develop a prayer habit as we seek God’s will for our church.

Oh, the pure delight of a single hour
That before Thy throne I spend,
When I kneel in prayer, and with Thee, my God
I commune as friend with friend!

LISTENING

Ecclesiastes 5:2; 1 Kings 19:11-12

Whether through His written Word or by an inner “still small voice” of His Holy Spirit, God speaks to praying Christians. But we must take time to listen. Listening is different from both waiting and meditation. Here we listen for direct orders from our Heavenly Father concerning the activities of our day.

PRAISE

Matthew 6:13; Psalm 100:4, Psalm 150

There is an imaginary door to every prayer time with a sign affixed that simply reads -- “praise.” We must always enter prayer through this door. And when prayer moves toward it’s conclusion we must look for this same door. We begin our prayer by recognizing God’s nature, and we end in similar fashion. Jesus taught this when He ended His prayer with the statement, “For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever, Amen!”
