#TitbitsWhat You Need to Know About Prayer: Part 1
2022 is an incredibly special year, and that means the “Titbits” in the editions of the devotional this year are special too! This month, we will be learning about Prayer; what it means, its importance, its impact and how to pray effectively. So, get ready to learn something new and inspiring.
1. God Loves To Hear Your Prayers:
God asked us to pray because He loves to hear and answer our prayers. Isn’t it great? He said, “He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him…” (Psalm 91:15). That’s the joy of prayer.
2. God is Your Father:
God wants to have a Father-child relationship with you. But you must be born again to have such relationship. How? By receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour (Romans 10:9-10).
3. What Is Prayer?
Prayer isn’t just getting God to do things for you; rather, it is fellowship with the Lord. Fellowship is a friendly relationship among people. You develop a special relationship with the Lord in prayer. That means you’re not the only one talking; He also talks to you, and you listen to Him.
4. Don’t Recite;
Pray From Your Heart: To recite prayers is to say prayers you have memorized, either from a book or a person. To have a rich fellowship with the Lord, you’ve got to pray from your heart. To pray from your heart means you’re focused, and not distracted; thinking about ice cream, TV, video games or looking around. If you keep your eyes closed, you’ll hear God easily, and receive answers too.
5. Prayers Produce Results:
The Bible says that divine power is released whenever we pray from the heart (James 5:16). That power brings to pass whatever you’ve asked for; this prayer produces results. This makes times of prayer joyful and exciting (John 16:24).
I always receive answers when I pray. This is why I’m very successful in anything I do. You can have this experience too if you take to heart what you’ve learnt in this study.
