REASON ELEVEN (11) PRAYERLESSNES
LUKE 18V1AND HE SPAKE A PARABLE UNTO THEM TO THIS END ,THAT MEN OUGHT TO PRAY AND NOT FAINT, Our Lord Jesus made it clear to us, men ought to pray and not faint which mean when men are praying they remain fixed strong an standing alive because when you are praying it make one bold which is victory over fear, for in place of prayers you relate every matter with God and receiving responds and grace that build your confidence been inform over things that burden you. It is a privilege that God the most high spending his time with you, In place of prayers we draw strength, zeal and safety from the lord, you cannot be famous than the level of your prayer life, your unction is the might of you prayer life. it makes us more like Jesus and it reveals to us the heart and mind of God.
If we look at the life of Jesus, we see that he prayed—with others (Luke 9:28), for others (Matthew 19:13-14), and on his own (Luke 5:16, Luke 6:12). It was a fundamental part of how he approached each day and every decision, retreating faithfully to spend time with his Father. Clearly prayer was important to Jesus—it was his lifeline and his connection to the Heavenly Father. It equipped him for the battles he was about to face. It kept alive the intimate relationship that sustained him. And it revealed to him God’s desires and direction. If the goal of a Christian is to become more like Jesus, that process should include imitating his actions and living out his words. As we pray, we will become more like Jesus, and we will find that prayer changes us.
When Jesus prayed for his disciples in John 17, he prayed for those who would believe in him, “that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you” (John 17:21).
Prayer helps us become one with the Father and have the kind of relationship Jesus had with him. The Bible is filled with stories illustrating God’s desire to have an intimate relationship with his people, and any close relationship involves communication. When two people have no contact with each other, their relationship will never advance. And since prayer is, quite simply, a conversation with God, it is how we get to know him.
