How Do I Pray – Audio

1pray-664786_1280

Many times when someone asks “How should I pray” somebody will direct them to Jesus’ prayer inMatthew 6:9-13 where He said, “You should pray like this: …” While He did give this as an example, implying that this is the only way to pray gives a very narrow focus and pulls a passage out of scripture and away from the whole Bible. When this happens we end up with a disconnected, disjointed view of not only that passage but all of God’s Word. Along with an answer that is incorrect.

Yes, I know the Bible tells me that without faith, it is impossible to please God. (Heb.11:6)

Yes, I know the Bible tells me faith is a gift of God, and the only reason I can repent and believe is because he has given me this supernatural gift. (Eph. 2:8)

Yes, I know the Bible tells me faith is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, and that I am to walk in accordance with him. (Gal. 5:22)

Yes, I know the Bible tells me that faith is expected of praying elders. When men pray and doubt not, such prayers are powerful and effective. (James 5:15)

ARE YOU STRUGGLING?

By Pat Thacker

4 So, my dear brothers and sisters, this is the point: You died to the power of the law when you died with Christ. And now you are united with the one who was raised from the dead. As a result, we can produce a harvest of good deeds for God. 5 When we were controlled by our old nature,[b] sinful desires were at work within us, and the law aroused these evil desires that produced a harvest of sinful deeds, resulting in death. 6 But now we have been released from the law, for we died to it and are no longer captive to its power. Now we can serve God, not in the old way of obeying the letter of the law, but in the new way of living in the Spirit.( Romans 7)

Hope Is Not Found In Our Capability

The more we place how we feel about ourselves, on whether we are able to juggle all the balls on in our hands, the greater our stress will be. This will always be a directly proportional statement as long as our identity is based on what we do, don’t do, or in any other way based on our performance.

So what if I’m outstanding in my field?

So what if I’m admired by thousands, or millions?  So what if I’m envied by all humans everywhere?  Domatter.  “All labor and all achievement spring from man’s envy of his neighbor.” Eccl 4:4  Human worthiness is meaningless.  Domatter.  The only worthiness that matters in this life, is the imputed worthiness of Jesus.  When DAVE’S worthiness matters to Dave, I live in denial of my misery.  A bottomless pit of need for yet-more worthiness.  Life is UP TO DAVE.  I’m never satisfied when my worthiness matters to me.

World Prayr has chosen to be different, starting with teaching others that the pilgrimage all of those who have been brought near to God are on is not one that is about our focusing on what we are doing, or focusing on our sin or anything we are not doing, but rather focusing on what Christ did in order for us to know transforming grace. We refer to this message as the gospel of grace. We then live this out as a ministry by serving others through counseling, prayer and sound biblical teachings.

We, also, differ from most ministries in another key area and that is working to live out the message of Philippians 2:4, by aggressively promoting other ministries and churches. As a mission team World Prayr is working to serve those who are disconnected and re-connecting them, one soul at a time to local bodies of believers.

We refer to our team as an “Ohana” which is made up of many nationalities spread across the globe and within the Protestant faith.
