Hello, Making Space for God community! This week, our study of Isaiah continued with a look at the topic of effective prayer. In the passage above, from the book of James, we recognize that prayer is a powerful weapon in the hand of every believer. We must all learn to recognize that our prayers are powerful and effective!
Here are some general facts about prayer:
- Prayer does not come naturally
- Prayer nourishes Christ in us
- Prayer is the way we get to know God.
- Prayer is worship
- Prayer changes us
Just as anything that we want to grow, our prayer lives need to be cultivated. What does your prayer life look like?
Here are a few examples of types of prayer:
- Bold Expectant prayer
- Ask in My Name
- Faith and Prayer
- Persistent Prayer
My prayer for each one of you is that you would come into a greater understanding of your citizenship in heaven – and that because you are a believer and follower of Jesus Christ, you are righteous. You are the righteousness of God – and because of this, your prayers are effective and carry great power! I invite each one of you to press in to this truth a little bit more today.
