If you want to be a winner God’s way then you must PRAY!
Prayer is one of the foundational truths and cornerstones to a successful Christian walk
Acts 2: 42 And they were continually devoting themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Prayer is the secret to winning through God because:
• Prayer is a symptom of faith.
• Prayer is where you can hear from God.
• Prayer is where you receive faith from God through the hearing of the Word.
• Prayer is where God affirms you and calls you up to your destiny.
• Prayer is where you get your heart right and tuned up with God.
• Prayer is where you declare God’s Word and His will over your life.
• Prayer is where you release your cares, hurts and anxieties.
• Prayer is where you adore Him and tell Him of His greatness.
If you won’t take time to pray, don’t expect to win by and through God.
• Expect to worry a lot
• Expect to loose your health and happiness
• Expect you’ll have to hold everything together
• Expect to receive what you can earn with your talents and skills
Now not only must you pray, but you must learn to pray God’s way. God has given us wisdom in the Word about how to pray to get results. He has said we must pray with faith and He has said we must pray fervently.
Mark 11:22 And Jesus answered^ saying to them, “Have faith in God. 23 “Truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says is going to happen, it shall be granted him. 24 “Therefore I say to you, all things for which you pray and ask, believe that you have received them, and they shall be granted you.
James 5:16b… The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
