Friends, we are living in a very serious time in life where if you never needed the Lord before, you sure do need Him now. You need Him every day and every hour. Things are getting from bad to worse. The unsettle situations in the world are signs of the times.
We are at the edge of a terrible emergency. Time is running out yet few understand it. We are approaching the final crisis. I believe a climatic event is about to take place and we cannot afford to go under.
Keep your wants, your joys, your sorrows, your tears, your fears, and your cares before God. You and I can never, weary or burden Him. He loves us with an everlasting love (Jeremiah 31:3).He is very pitiful and of tender mercies. His heart of love is touched by our sorrows (James 5:11).
He can heal the broken in heart (Psalms 147:3). Take to him everything that perplexed your heart or mind. Nothing is too great for Him to bear. Remember, He is the one who holds up the world and keeps every planet and stars in its place.
Now that you have entered the prayer room with confidence you will receive your blessings and feel all your cares and burden be lifted up. Burdens are lifted at Calvary.
This OPEN DOOR is your hope to glory. In John 3: 16we are told for God so love the world that He gave His only begotton son that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
Don’t let the Devil suggestion keep you from following Christ, coming to the cross and taking your position in prayer. Prayer is to the soul what water is to life. The conflict between good and evil and over the mind, will continue until Jesus returns to put an end to it.
We need to be in the spirit of prayer at all times. Prayer is vital it is the only thing that can keep the devil at bay. Prayer opens our heart to God just as it would to a friend.
Why should we be reluctant to pray when prayer is the only thing that can open heaven’s storehouse, bring peace to our soul, keep the devil at bay and even make our enemies be at peace with us.
One of my favourite writer E.G.White puts it this way “If we keep the Lord ever before us, our prayers will take the form of a conversation with God as we would talk with a friend.” OL p.129.
Did you know there are many things God will not bestow or give to us until we come to Him in prayer and ask? In Mark 11:24 Jesus says Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receivethem, and ye shall havethem.
Pray especially in your mind at all times asking God to change your life and save your soul. Ask for forgiveness and victory over bad habits and the wrongs you have done in your life. Be sincere and God will answer your prayers.
We need prayer in order that we may have strength to overcome our temptations. Jesus will hear the most simple prayer for forgiveness. Confess your wrongs daily in your mind and when you are at home in your own privacy go down on your knees. Keep a hymn or gospel song in your heart in praise to God always.
JESUS SAYS my son my daughter give me thine heart. He says in Isaiah 1:18 Come now, let us reason together, saith the Lord: though your sins be as scarlet they shall be as white as snow… He will cleanse you with His precious blood. Remember, prayer keeps us connected with Christ.
And private prayer helps us to become personally acquainted with God. Satan and his host trembles at the sound of prayer and when he sees the weakest person on their knees.
We are to beware of how we neglect secret prayer and the study of Gods’s word (the Bible). Strive to walk in the light of Christ. Read your bible daily. If you don’t have a bible borrow one from a friend and purchase one later. Let the word of God transform your life.
The word of God is our sword and weapon against Satan who is trying to prevent us from going forward with Christ and heavenward. Jesus who once dwell among men was always in prayer.
Jesus says in Matthew 7:7 Ask and it shall be given unto you… Ask God for anything according to His will in prayer. Ask Him to forgive those who have hurt you and to give them His peace and God will answer your prayers.
E.G.Whitewrote, “We are to have a spirit of compassion toward those who have trespassed against us, whether or not they confess their faults.” Pray and ask God to give you the Spirit of compassion.
We are to forgive all who have done evil to us. Jesus says be ye kind one to another forgiving one another. When we forgive others God will also forgive us. Friends, Jesus is the way the truth and the life.
Only those who have a hiding place in Jesus and in the spirit of prayer, will be safe. The son of God gave His life and suffered for our redemption. Do you WANT heaven, forgiveness and peace? then come to Jesus now.
Money cannot buy it, intellect cannot procure it, wisdom cannot attain to it, neither can we hope by our own efforts to secure it. But God through His son Jesus offers it to you as a gift (it is free)WITHOUT MONEYandWITHOUTprice. It is yours if you will reach out your hand and grasp it TODAY.
Jesus is ready and waiting. He is our High Priests. Jesus is in the Most Holy place in heaven pleading on our behalf so that we can receive forgiveness from all our sins. His time is limited. He will not be pleading on our behalf forever.
Therefore, be in the spirit of prayer for yourself and for others at all times. Pray for blessings in order to bless others. Selfishness is a terrible sin. Strive to walk in the light of Christ and to keep His law and His commandments.
At a time when we are least expecting it Jesus will step out of the Most Holy place, put on His Kingly robe and come Down to claim His children. Always remember, that only those who are in the spirit of prayer and surrendered their lives to Jesus, will be in readiness for the Lord’s return.
Why don’t you reach out to Jesus today? If you hear His voice harden not your heart. As you reach out to Jesus pray the following simple prayer to open your heart to Him.
I Surrender to you today please come into my heart. Change my life and make me a better person. I want you to be my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive me for the times I have failed you and all the wrongs I have committed take full control of my life and guide me through your Holy Spirit.
Lord I don’t know where to go from here but I need you to guide me I want to please you and keep your Law and your commandments. Lord please teach me how to pray that I may honour you. Help me to show in my life that you areeverything to me and that your love
make me patient, kind and forbearing. From this moment on I am yours have your own way in my life and give me your peace, that peace that passed all understanding. May I feelyour presence with me and beside me always.Help me to understand your words and be what you want me to be. Thank you, Lord, for hearing and foransweringmy prayers in Jesus name. Amen!
