James 4:1>What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battles within you.
The disciples of Jesus desired to know the secret of prayer as they had seen in Jesus a tendancy of prayer and the result of his commitment to it daily.Luke 11:1.
They had seen Jesus heal the sick,raise the dead and many other miracles but the only thing they did desire was to know the base of all.
Prayer is a channel or a field in which we inherit power to do the greatness of God just as Jesus did.
We should avoid forsaken praying, foolish praying and adopt faithful prayer.
The biggest enemy to a prayer life is a evil desire, the fights and the quarrels within the heart. Prayers that are full of .quarrels are just but a noise. The best way to pray is to pray in the will of God which is all hidden or rather is in his word.praying for the leadership at any capacity allows us to take our authority for it is in these that we make known the wisdom of God to the powers and authorities in the high realms.
Prayer is a reminder to God of his promises into our lives. And practicing the word of God and engaging it in our prayers for it is not just a word but the promises that God ought to fulfill in our lives only if we ask. For we do not have or receive for we do not ask and if we ask we don’t believe. Thus prayer is accompanied by faith. It’s wise to be keen on the seasons that our motives will not deceive us into foolish prayers which are by the wrong motives.
The motive of a prayer is determined by what is engaged in deciding what to pray for…is it spiritual or just carnal? Therefore if it’s carnal don’t pray for it has no regard to the word of God.
2corithians11:2 I am jealous for you with a godly jealousy. I promised you to one husband, to Christ, so that I might present you as a pure virgin it him.
Faithfulness to God is a factor of consideration in the walk with God.
Psalm 66:18 if I had cherished sin in my heart, the lord would not have listened.
Proverbs15:8 the lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him.
Verse 29: the lord is far from the wicked but he hears the prayers of the righteous.
Faithful praying roots us into Christ for they are heard in heaven and answered to us. These calls to us to be sensitive to the spirit of God who dwells in us to will with us in the lead of God.
The will of the spirit is for the things that brings glory and no our to the name of the lord. 1corithians2:11 the Holy Spirit who is also in god knows the mind of God like the spirit man in us knows us. Thus depending in the Holy Spirit opens us into the will of God which is perfect.
