pivitol prayer

E-mail Print PDF

Do we want our prayers to be effective?  

 A Young couple wanted to be missionarys… They prayed God "We will Work Hard, Manage our resources and share Christ with as many as possible"….

In the last steps they failed to get clearance to go to the mission field…. They got angry with god…

This young man went to work for his dads dentistry and small fledging juice business. The Lord spoke to this man saying "remember your prayer to Work Hard, Manage our resources and share christ with as many as possible….DO it"……….  So this man went to work building this company into a huge conglomerate, donating millions to fund missionaries all over the world….

Today you know him as Mr. Welch of welchs grape juice company…. 

IT started with a PIVITOAL PRAYER>>>.A focused prayer that not only gets Gods ear, but His heart. After all isnt that what God wants from us, to follow the examp-les laid out by Jesus? So why not pray in that same manner

2 chronicles 7 14---- IF my people who are called by my name shall

1. Humble themselves, 2.pray 3. seek my face 4. turn from their wicked ways

THEN 1.   i will hear from Heaven, 2. i will forgive them 3. i will heal their land.

The THEN is a huge transition word. IF we dont do 1-4 then GOD wont do 1-3. so if we dont humble our selves and seek gods face he will NOT hear us from heaven.

 

Proverbs 1: 22-30

Verse 24: Because i have called and you refused, i have stretched out my hand and no one regarded'

Verse 26: I also will laugh at your calamity i will mock when terror overcomes you

Verse 28: Then they will call on me but i wont answer they will seek me , but will not find me.

God will turn away when we cry out to Him IF we have not obeyed …

 I think between yestarday and today God has laid out the requirements for prayer. Last night in out small group it was brought up GOD cant not be in the presence of sin.  And when we pray we are brought to a place where jesus is.  So if we have unconfessed sin in our lifes its immpossable for us to enter a communication with god until we Do as chronicles says and Confess our sin, TUrn FROM OUR OWN WICKED WAYS AND SEEK GODS FACE.

John 9:30-32

30 The man answered and said to them,"Why, this is a marvelous thing, that you do not know where He is from; yet He has opened my eyes! 31 Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.

NKJV

Verse 31**** God does NOT hear SINNERS….BUT  worshipper and DOER…..

So many people THINK that GOD hears all prayers, and many so called christians think that also....But here in this passage God says its not enough to SAY your a christian, You MUST be a Worshipper and a DOER of his will.

Thats a pretty powerful statement.....maybe 1 reason prayers arnt being answered is there not being heard?

Maybe your not being a doer of HIS will?

Whose will are you doing?

John

30 The man answered and said to them,"Why, this is a marvelous thing, that you do not know where He is from; yet He has opened my eyes! 31 Now we know that God does not hear sinners; but if anyone is a worshiper of God and does His will, He hears him.

NKJV

Verse 31**** God does NOT hear SINNERS….BUT  worshipper and DOER…..

So that verse points out several things....first GOD DOES NOT hear all prayers.... He has set up peramiters to hear our prayers...

Its not enough to say IM A CHRISTIAN...I GO TO CHURCH.... I tithe....etc etc etc....

IT says IF you are a worshipper AND a doer..... you must be BOTH....

You MUST worship GOD AND DO his will.....that means our will gets set aside and HIS will takes over....

so if your not worshipping GOD he doesnt hear you,

if your not DOING GODS will he doesnt hear you...

Tommorrow i will lay out more verses that will carry this further....

Today maybe a good day to look at your life and ask AM I DOING GODS WILL?  What is gods will for your life?

 

 

pivitol Prayer

E-mail Print PDF

We are all used to the PANIC 911 prayers… life is going fine then BAM a big thing happens and we all of a sudden fall to our knees and Dial 1800 God Help…

 

Prayer is easy..its simply talking to God and anyone can do it. Some connect with Gods heart and some do not…..

 

Does GOD hear all prayers?

Can we pray to God and him not hear us?

 

Luke 18:9-14

9 The Parable of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector

 

Also He spoke this parable to some who trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others: 10 "Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.  11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself,'God, I thank You that I am not like other men — extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this tax collector.  12 I fast twice a week; I give tithes of all that I possess.'  13 And the tax collector, standing afar off, would not so much as raise his eyes to heaven, but beat his breast, saying, 'God, be merciful to me a sinner!'  14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted." 

NKJV

 

Both went to Pray  only 1 connected with Gods heart….

Pharasee was elequont, articulate, knew scripture,

 

Tax collector- full of humility, had reckless trust in God,  Tax collector Got gods ear

The pharasee went home empty…..
