Jesus said “That men ought always to pray and not to faint”, When the deciples asked Him to teach them to pray He gave them (us) the Lords Prayer. Prayer is important! The question we need to ask as the people of God and as individuals is, Do we pray?

The Bible on prayer

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7

“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16 C H Spurgeon
on this verse “True prayer is an approach of the soul by the Spirit of God to the throne of God. It is not the utterance of words, it is not alone the feeling of desires, but it is the advance of the disires to God, the spiritual approach of our nature towards the Lord our God.”

” I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also.” 1stCorinthians 14:15 Inwardly we groan with unutterable words, cries and pleas, with words also we talk to Our Father, our requests are made known , He does hear! In His word it is commanded “pray without ceasing”. Yes that is what is written. God knowing all things we need and desire, says, pray. O. Hallesby has written “Prayer is something deeper than words. It is present in the soul before it has been formulated into words. And it abides in the soul after the last words of prayer have passed over our lips”

“And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.”
John 16:23-24 This is His promise. Let us keep asking.

Harvest time is coming Fall is upon us. Jesus is soon coming. The Lord’s words. “Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest.” Luke 10:2 The Fall Services are just around the corner. I ask all of you to be in prayer for the services. With fullness of joy, that God for the sake of His dear son would, Open the windows of heaven and pour out a blessing upon us. That the wonder working blood of the Lamb and mighty name of Jesus would purge us of our besetting sins, and the secret sins of our heart. That cleansed and made Holy we would ” Living in Thee Lord, and Thou in me; constant abiding this is my plea; grant me thy power, boundless and free: Power with men and power with Thee.” “mercy drops round us are falling but for the showers we plead.”
