Value of Prayer


It Is Written, Philippians 4:6, be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.
Have you ever been disappointed, because your prayers were not answered?  Were you trying your best to have faith, and it was a struggle? By now you are probably aware that when you pray, you must have forgiveness for everyone in your heart.  Faith requires love in order to operate.  Doubt and fear about the power of prayer, comes from satan. They are prayer blockers.
So how do you pray in order to get prayers answered?  It isn't that difficult to overcome the obstacles that are mentioned.  First of all realize that God knows everything you want or need, and has already provided it in His world, that is the spiritual world.  Prayer brings what He has to us when we access it in Jesus name by faith and trust.
Now comes the answer that many people don't want to hear.  You must get closer to God, by reading His Word and doing it.  As you study, you will get to know Him intimately.  You will find that trust in Jesus to get it all done, gets it all done.  You don't have to struggle to have faith.  Faith is a gift from the Holy Spirit to believers, however you must nurture it with the Word, until your faith is automatic.
If someone told you that there was $1 billion, in your yard, and they showed you the spot to dig, would you?  What if they said it was 20 feet down, and you could only use a small shovel, would you still dig?
The Word of God is priceless to those who use it properly.  You can't dig a hole without a shovel, and you can't get prayers answered without God. He wants to give it all to whoever uses the spiritual shovel, which is the Word of God.  Fabulous blessings await you from God, it's up to you to accept them.  What are you waiting for?  May God bless you and your family.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
Amen
