Essential of Prayer

The first is found in, Genesis 4:26 A son was born to Seth also, and he named him Enosh. At that time people began to call on the name of the LORD.

For everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.

Romans 10:13 –

Got questions stated Prayer should not be seen as our means of getting God to do our will on earth, but rather as a means of getting God’s will done on earth. God’s wisdom far exceeds our own.We pray to demonstrate our faith in God, that He will do as He has promised in His Word and bless our lives abundantly more than we could ask or hope for (Ephesians 3:20). Prayer is our primary means of seeing God work in others’ lives. Because it is our means of “plugging into” God’s power,it is our means of defeating Satan and his army that we are powerless to overcome by ourselves.

There are six types of prayers, praise, petition (supplication), intercession thanksgiving and confessions. The most effective way is to uses of the scriptures.

We come to God in prayer for a variety of reasons—to worship Him, to confess our sins and ask for forgiveness, to thank Him for His blessings, to ask for things for ourselves, and/or to pray for the needs of others

Praisef one’s gratitude and respect towards a deity, especially in a song. … There are three Hebrew words in the Bible that are translated as praise. One is “yadah” which means “praise or give thanks or confess is simply means honouring God giving Him adoring through song, and reading His word. For y of voice in thanks, to applaud or clap, to speak well of God or conversation, and celebrate.

Jonathan Edwards wrote,Tis from the little that the saints have seen of God, and know of Him in this world, that they are excited to praise Him in the degree they do here. But here they see but as in a glass darkly; they have only now and then a little glimpse of God’s excellency; but then they shall have the transcendent glory and divine excellency of God set in their immediate and full view. They shall dwell in His immediate glorious presence, and shall see face to face (I Cor. 13:12). Now the saints see the glory of God but by a reflected light, as we in the night see the light of the sun reflected from the moon; but in heaven they shall directly behold the Sun of righteousness, and shall look full upon Him when shining in all His glory.”

They have another sense how great a gift the gift of God’s only-begotten Son is. They have another sense of the greatness and dignity of the Person of Christ, and how great a thing it was for Him to become man, and how great a thing it was for Him to lay down His life, and to endure the shameful and accursed death of the cross.” “… and have another sense what eternity is.

The church of God on earth ought to be employed in the same work with the saints in heaven … we ought now to begin that work which we intend shall be the work of another world …. If our hearts be not in some measure tuned to praise in this world, we shall never do any thing at the work hereafter.”

“If you praise God sincerely in this world, it will be a sign that you are really to be one of those that shall praise Him in heaven.” petition (supplication

Means,Supplication is a request. And if the request is made to God, it becomes a prayer or When we’re humble before God, we acknowledge our sinful condition as well as God’s holiness. Humble people pray with right motives (James 4:1-3). We will pray on behalf of other people (that’s called intercession). We will believe in God’s wisdom and timing because we won’t presume to understand God’s overarching plan.

Supplication arms us with the strength and courage to suffer and wait while we ask for relief. If we’re truly humble, we will ask in faith and continue to believe even when life doesn’t turn out like we had hoped (James 1:5-8

Scriptures declares,“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:6

A petition, just as it is in the political arena, is a request to a sovereign to take some action. Any request made of God, is thus a petition. Prayer, on the other hand, is any communication with God

For example the Apostle Paul wrote, Concerning this thing I pleaded with the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you. Or Hannah said For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him. The Lord Prayer concert a petition,Luke 11:1-4, and Matthew 6:9-13

The most common prayer petition is Philippians 4:6

intercession means, A person who intervenes on behalf of another, especially by prayer or Prayer warrior is a term used by many evangelical and other Christians to refer to anyone who is committed to praying for others.

For example in, First John 2:1 points out, “My little children, I am writing these things to you so that you may not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.” Jesus is the Advocate of the Christian, working on behalf of those who are His children in order to provide forgiveness and access to the Father.

Jesus’ intercession points also to the fact that Jesus is alive and has received authority to be the eternal, perfect high priest. In the Old Testament, high priests were ordained to act on behalf of the people. They had to bring sacrifices for sin on behalf of the Israelites and pray for them too (Hebrews 5:1). But it had to be done over and over again. Priests died, so new priests had to be appointed (Hebrews 7:23). But Jesus only needed to bring the sacrifice one time.

But Jesus only needed to bring the sacrifice one time. Then He was raised from the dead: this underlines the eternal value of the sacrificial death He died (Romans 6:9). And because He is alive, He is able to intercede for us without end. He continues forever (Hebrews 7:24).

Remember He died for. All those who have found forgiveness in Him have the assurance of His interce. What does Jesus pray about you (if you believe in Him)? Need you ever fear losing your salvation? Memorize Hebrews 7:25.

Someone can lose your salvation,my response how could your salivation if it already determine? Ephesians 1:4-5: For He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world, to be holy and blameless in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted through Jesus Christ for Himself, according to His favor and will.

Human example would be Abraham interceding on behalf Lot and family.Genesis 18;16-33 or Judah interceding on Benjamin behalf, Genesis 44: 18 -34 or Easter interceding her people behalf.Esther 7: 3-4, 8; 6

Thanksgiving means a prayer expressing gratitude toward and Jesus Christ grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors. The Greek word is Ευχαριστία meaning thankfulness, giving of thanks to God

As scriptures declares,Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.Remember what He accomplished on the cross

Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Philippians 4:4-5,

Chip Ingram wrote,We’re to pray with thanksgiving – not just when we feel like it, but as an act of our will and obedience. Regardless of what’s happening in our lives, we’re to thank God for the good, for the difficult, for the unknown, for the big decision we’re facing, and even for the challenging relationships. Further more he wrote,Now, this isn’t, “Oh, God, I thank You that my wife has cancer.”  Instead it is, “Thank You, God, that You are sovereign, You are all-knowing, You are with me, and You love my wife.”

My wife, Theresa, actually did have cancer and we went through a very difficult time. Yet it was possible for me to say “thank you” in the midst of it because I chose to surrender and acknowledge my faith in an all-powerful, all-knowing God.

On personal note often, when I go through times of trouble waters,I recite this verse,”Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice! Let your graciousness be known to everyone. The Lord is near. Don’t worry about anything, but in everything, through prayer and petition with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses every thought, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. Remember the apostle Paul wrote this letter in jail or dungeons

Confessions Scripture declares,If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.1 John 1:8,10 furthermore it states,If we say, “We have no sin,” we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we say, “We don’t have any sin,” we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us. 1 John 1:8,10

Britannica’s Wrote Confession, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, the acknowledgment of sinfulness in public or private, regarded as necessary to obtain divine forgiveness. The need for confession is frequently stressed in the Bible. The mission of the Old Testament prophets was to awaken in the people a sense of sinfulness and an acknowledgment of their guilt, both personal and collective. Before the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem (AD 70), the sin offerings on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur) were prefaced by a collective expression of sinfulness (Lev. 16:21), and, since the destruction of the Temple, the Day of Atonement has continued in Judaism as a day of prayer, fasting, and confession.

Further more it states,CONFESSION (Lat. confessio, from confiteor, acknowledge, confess), a term meaning in general the admission and acknowledgment that one has done something which otherwise might remain undisclosed, especially the acknowledgment of guilt or wrong-doing, either in public or to somebody specially entitled to such knowledge. The term has a special importance (I) in religion, (2) in law.

The Greek word is confess” is homologeo which basically means “to say the same thing” and then “agree, admit, acknowledge.

There are three elements in accepting the Lord, repent, confess, and believe.

To repent means to change one mind, such as to produce regret or even remorse because of sin. To confess means you agree with God that you wrong,and God declare you are a sinner.

Believer Commentary states, “ In order for us to walk day by day in fellowship with God and with our fellow believers, we must confess our sins: sins of commission, sins of omission, sins of thought, sins of act, secret sins, and public sins. We must drag them out into the open before God, call them by their names, take sides with God against them, and forsake them. To believe means,to believe, or to entrust to have faith (in, upon, or with respect to, a person or thing); i.e., credit; by implication, to entrust (especially one’s spiritual well-being to Christ):—believe, commit (to trust), put trust in Jesus.

The Voice concluded, “ÒSo if you believe deep in your heart that God raised Jesus from the pit of death and if you voice your allegiance by confessing the truth that “Ò Jesus is Lord,”Ó then you will be saved! Belief begins in the heart and leads to a life that’s right with God; confession departs from our lips and brings eternal salvation. Faith is not something we do. It is a response to what God has done already on our behalf, the response of a spirit restless in a fragmented world.When a Christian repents and believes the Gospel of Jesus Christ, all of their sins, past, present, and future are immediately forgiven! As scriptures declares,If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation. Now the Scripture says, Everyone who believes on Him will not be put to shame,

For example the late Susan Akins wrote following,. After holding Sharon Tate she pleading with Tex and Susan to spare her, and her eight-month baby, she uttered these words, ” Look bitch, I don’t care about you. I don’t care if you’re going to have a baby or not. You’re going to die, and I don’t feel anything about it.” She felt no guilt in her mind Sharon look like store mannequin. 

In 1974 Jesus knocked her hardened, and she accepted Jesus as my personal Savior and Lord went was her bitter heart, and replace with a soft heart. According to Susan Christ assured her that in the depths of her soul that Old things had passed away, behold all things have become new, II Corinthians 5:17  On death bed her fellow prisoner recited Psalm 23. While on earth she died in prison because she was responsible committing seven murders; however, in heaven the saints uttering a different story welcoming her into heaven and rejoicing along with the other saints

Christopher Columbus wrote I am a most noteworthy sinner, but I have cried out to the Lord for grace and mercy, and they have covered me completely. I have found the sweetest consolation since I made it my whole purpose to enjoy His marvellous Present

Charles Spurgeon wroteMy evidence that I am saved does not lie in the fact that I preach, or that I do this or that. All my hope lies in this: that Jesus Christ came to save sinners. I am a sinner, I trust Him, then He came to save me, and I am saved.

Furthermore he My evidence that I am saved does not lie in the fact that I preach, or that I do this or that. All my hope lies in this: that Jesus Christ came to save sinners. I am a sinner, I trust Him, then He came to save me, and I am saved.

In personal testament I wrote God heard my prayer. God also heard another prayer that day my mother and sister Marcia prayer her foolish rebellious are now believer. As scripture says in the same way, there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents.

Acknowledging your sins before Christ simply works!!!!
