PRAYER IS NOT A cold Ritual, but a Divine Gift to us where GOD is ALWAYS LISTENING with a heart of love and wisdom and care and UNLIMITED ABILITY -“Ah Sovereign LORD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You”{READ Psalm 34:6 NLT; Matt 6:6. 1 Pet 2:12; Jer 32:17}…. GOD IS ABLE TO DO the exceeding abundant beyond all we can think or ask.
PRAYER – IS NOT- A matter of “feeling” His Presence but the FACT He is ALWAYS PRESENT WITH YOU!{ Psalm 139: ;Heb 13:5}. For to pursue a “feeling” is to fail to pursue HIM! We walk by faith not by feeling. Faith in a Person. Faith in His Word. Whether you “feel” anything or not does not change the Glorious FACT- He is Present. And the PROMISE of His Presence and encouragement He gives to pray on…”But when you pray, go away by yourself, shut the door behind you, and pray to your Father in private. Then your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.”-{Matthew 6:6}
PRAYER’S PURPOSE – “…Now ALL GLORY TO GOD, who is ABLE, through His mighty power at work within us, to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think. GLORY TO HIM in the church and in Christ Jesus through all generations forever and ever! Amen.”-{Eph 3:20-21}. WHAT is WONDERFUL about this verse is it is written to those who are tempted to lose heart, ON Account of Paul’s trials….. {READ…Eph 3:13}… The AIM is THE GLORY to GOD…HIS NAME, CHARACTER been Honored, His FAME been Known and Spread…
And as we PRAY ON, This verse {Eph 3:20-21}gives the assurance is He is ABLE. He has the ability to act and bring into being what He desires! He is Sovereign LORD, King of Kings, who has redeemed us and has placed us here for His purposes.
* Prayer is a Privilege!
* Prayer is to a PERSON…
* Prayer has an ultimate Purpose- the GLORY, Fame of GOD!
PRAY ON with Confidence… Don’t Lose heart…you never pray alone. God Himself is listening intently, lovingly {Read 1 Peter 3:12}
PRAY on with Courage– persevere-{Luke 18:1. Col 4:2}

It’s easy lose heart – when we take our eyes of the Person
t’s easy lose heart when we take the focus of the ultimate purpose to pray- His Glory.
Focus on the PERSON… His character, Promises, Word. FIX your eyes on the purpose of your praying, ask Him to remind you. – His Glory the aim… and
