Seeing the Blessing of Communion

2 Chron 7:14: "if My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land

Let's review some hindrances to prayer from a previous sermon. Many say they aren’t praying as frequently or as fervently as they could. Maybe it’s because we’re unconvinced of our need to do it or that God will really respond. It could be in the mechanics, not knowing exactly what to say or where to start. Maybe we just make it too formal and don’t just talk to God, casting all of our cares upon Him. It may be we’re too busy, too worldly or we’re just lazy.

Prayer - seeing great blessing in communion with God.

James 1:5-8. Jas 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

I John 5:13-15.These things I have written to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, that you may know that you have eternal life, and that you may continue to believe in the name of the Son of God 14 Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.

The benefits of prayer- More constant appeals keep our minds focused on His presence, our greater purpose here and assists in our transformation and holiness

Heb 4:16. Praying with power. Let us therefore draw near with confidence to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and may find grace to help in time of need

Prov 3:6 In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.

3:26 For the LORD will be your confidence, And will keep your foot from being caught

Prayer is the key to heaven but faith unlocked the door. We need to pray for our work, our leaders, our children, every members, family members who are not serving the Lord, our salvation, the lost.

God is active and powerful! He lives and He rules.

Prayer for protection by James Freeman,

The light of God surrounds us; The love of God enfolds us; The power of God protects us; The presence of God watches over us; Wherever we are, God is!
