Start the year w prayer.
What does God want for my life? You can know through prayer.
New year, new life and let go of your life.(2013 was full of bad stuff)
Do not conform to ways of life but transform your mindset.
James 5:16!! (Effective, fervent)
Prayer is something that causes an effect, which mean prayer will come true and change circumstances.
Prayers can be energeo (effectual) coz we are righteous thru Jesus Christ.
Truth about prayer:
1. We do not need colourful vocab to pray. Simple hi is good enough 🙂
Earnest prayer is one that Elijah proclaimed in FAITH. Faithful prayer is the most effective.
2. Length of the prayer is never an issue. Jesus never condemned short prayer but long prayers.
If we pray with long hours, we will feel like we are doing time that’s why we feel like we are in jail. God is more interested in your heart than your time. Not wrong to have long prayer, wrong when you try to repeat your prayers to extend it.
3. Prayer gives authority to us to build the kingdom of God. Pray ‘your kingdom come, your will be done’. God gave us free will and He chose not to override it. That’s why people can don’t choose Jesus and the world is fallen. So we as children of God we pray to make things happen. Prayer is effectual. Prayer changes us.
With love from God.
