Christ’s life was filled with prayer. “Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house, and went off to a solitary place where he prayed” (Mark 1:35, NIV). If you are to grow into a likeness, you also need to spend time with Him in daily prayer.
Jesus said, “Men ought always to pray and not to faint” (Luke 18:1). He indicated that if you do not pray, you will faint. Without prayer, you will be easily defeated by the temptation of the enemy.
God assures you that in answer to prayer, He will take care of your every need. Jesus said, “Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask and you will receive, that your joy may be full” (John 16:24). Paul said,
”He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”(Romans 8:32).
Your Lord promises to answer prayer, but there are certain conditions. “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you” (John 15:7). To abide means to constantly live. In other words, if you live in constant fellowship with Christ, and in daily obedience to His word, then you can ask what you will and it shall be done.
At first, prayer may be difficult. The words may come slowly, but you must keep on praying. Even the disciples had to learn to pray. They went to Jesus and said “Lord, teach us to pray” (Luke11:1). The questions in this lesson are designed to help you learn more about prayer and its power.
The pattern of prayer as Jesus Christ taught His disciples as our Father who is in heaven… This means that there are ways in which you should pray and receive answers (Luke 11: 2). The important thing is that no one can come to Jesus except through Jesus Christ (John 14: 6; 1Timothy 2: 5). When you pray, you should ask for the Holy Spirit to help you (Romans 8: 26). God always hears our prayers when we pray to Him and His ears are open to our requests (1 Peter 3:12; 1 John 5: 14, 15). If you have been praying without responses, keep asking in the name of the Lord and believe in God that your prayers have been received. If you believe, you will see the glory of God (John 16: 24; John 14: 13; Mathew 21: 22; Hebrews 11: 6; Romans 4: 20-21)
Prayer of provision
The provision is an answered prayer. God assures us that he will provide for all our needs (Romans 8: 32). Even, the Bible says that in His riches in glory by Jesus Christ, He will supply our needs (Philippians 4: 19). When you are praying for the provision, bring your supplication and thanksgiving in prayer to him (Philippians 4: 6). And there are specific things for which you should pray. Some of the specific things are wisdom, forgiveness from debts, confession of faults, salvation, our daily bread, and deliverance from evil and temptation (Mathew 6: 11-13; Romans 10: 1; James 1: 5; James 5: 16).
Prayer of hindrances
When you are praying, pray rightly. This will make prayers answered quickly. But some causes can hinder prayers. Some of them may be sins and iniquities, unforgiveness, or asking amiss. If your answer seems to be unanswered, you must have confidence and patience that you will receive positive responses one day (Hebrews 10: 35, 36; Psalm 40: 1). When you are trying to pray, make sure you set yourself apart and pray in a solitary place and most cases, pray in the morning (Mathew 14: 23; Mathew 1: 35; Psalm 5: 1-3). Do not lose hope; you need to pray daily to be empowered, strengthened, blessed, and enriched and to be overcome.
