Consecration 2020 Prayer Tips

COMMAND YOUR DAY IN PRAYER:

PSALM 63: O GOD, THOU ART MY GOD; EARLY WLL I SEEK THEE: MY SOUL THIRSTETH FOR THEE, MY FLESH LONGETH FOR THEE IN A DRY AND THIRSTY LAND, WHERE NO WATER IS.

ONE BENEFIT OF PRAYING IN THE MORNING IS YOUR MIND IS CLEAR, YOUR SPIRIT IS ALERT, AND YOU ARE STILL AT PEACE. YOU GIVE GOD YOUR FIRST FRUIT, THE BEST OF YOUR MORNING.

I command the gates of this day to open up and hear me now, in the name of Jesus (Psalm 24:7, 9).

WE ARE WIRED TO PRAY.

ECCLESIASTES 3:11A (NLT): HE HAS PLANTED ETERNITY IN THE HUMAN HEART.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE A PH.D TO PRAY. WE ALL NEED TO LEARN THE LANGUAGE OF PRAYER. WATCHING THE MASTER TEACHES US HOW TO PRAY. ALL THE POWER BEHIND HIS MIRACLES, TEACHINGS, AND PREACHINGS WAS THROUGH PRAYER.

GOD DOESN’T WANT YOU TO BE DRIVEN BY GUILT TO PRAY. HE WANTS YOU TO BE DRAWN BY HIS GRACE.

———————-

GOD LOVES FOR YOU TO TALK TO HIM ABOUT ANYTHING.

PSALM 103:13 (NLT): THE LORD IS LIKE A FATHER TO HIS CHILDREN, TENDER AND COMPASSIONATE TO THOSE WHO FEAR HIM.

WHETHER WE TALK TO HIM OR NOT, HE DESIRES TO HAVE A CONVERSATION WITH HIS CHILDREN. LEARNING TO PRAY IS LIKE LEARNING ANOTHER LANGUAGE. PRAYER IS A SPIRITUAL LANGUAGE. GOD IS SMART ENOUGH TO INTERPRET WHAT WE ARE TRYING TO SAY. NOTHING IS OFF LIMITS TO GOD.

———————-

PRAYER IS A CONVERSATION NOT A CEREMONY.

PRAY WITH NO SHAME, FEAR, HESITATION, OR EMBARASSMENT. I JOHN 5:15(NLT): AND SINCE WE KNOW HE HEARS US WHEN WE MAKE OUR REQUESTS, WE ALSO KNOW THAT HE WILL GIVE US WHAT WE ASK FOR.

PRAYER IS A CONVERSATION NOT A CEREMONY. A CEREMONY HAS RULES AND REGULATIONS. IF WE DON’T DO IT A CERTAIN WAY IT WON’T WORK. GOD IS INTERESTED IN WHAT INTEREST US. GOD CAN HANDLED OUR PROBLEMS. GOD IS WAITING TO HEAR FROM US. THE SHEPHERD KNOWS THE VOICE OF HIS SHEEP.

———————-

PRAYER IS A RELATIONSHIP NOT A RITUAL.

HEBREWS 10:22(NLT): LET US GO RIGHT INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD WITH SINCERE HEARTS FULLY TRUSTING HIM.

PRAYER IS GETTING CLOSER TO GOD…REACHING OUT TO GOD. IF PRAYER IS BORING, YOU PROBABLY ARE DOING ALL OF THE TALKING AND NOT LISTENING. YOU ARE NOT UNDERSTANDING AND MISSING THE POINT OF PRAYER.

———————-

GOD LISTENS TO PRAYERS THAT ARE SINCERE AND SIMPLE.

MATTHEW 6:5‐ 7(NLT): WHEN YOU PRAY DON’T BE LIKE THE HYPOCRITES WHO LOVE TO PRAY PUBLICLY ON STREETS CORNERS AND IN THE SYNAGOGUES WHERE EVERYONE CAN SEE THEM.

PRAYER COMES FROM THE HEART. YOU DON’T HAVE TO USE FANCY WORDS OR BE SPIRITUAL. BE GENUINE AND AUTHENTIC. GOD UNDERSTANDS LINGO AND SLANG. THE MOST POWERFUL PRAYER IS A SIMPLE PRAYER.

EXAMPLES:
GOD I’M MAD AT YOU IS A SIMPLE PRAYER.
GOD I DON’T WANT TO TALK TODAY IS A SIMPLE PRAYER.

A LONG PRAYER IS NOT NECCESSARY A STRONGER PRAYER. DON’T USE PRAYER TO SHOW OFF. STAY HUMBLE OR YOU WILL STUMBLE.

———————-

GOD LIKES TO SHOW HIS GRACE BY ANSWERING PRAYERS.

JEREMIAH 33:3(MSG): CALL TO ME AND I WLL ANSWER YOU. I’LL TELL YOU MARVELOUS THINGS THAT YOU COULD NEVER FIGURE OUT ON YOUR OWN.

GOD LOVES TO ANSWER PRAYERS. HE SHOWS US WHAT HE LIKES. GOD ANSWERS IN FOUR WAYS: YES, NO, NOT YET, AND YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME!

JAMES 4:2B(NLT): YET YOU DON’T HAVE WHAT YOU WANT BECAUSE YOU DON’T ASK GOD FOR IT. WHEN YOU DON’T PRAY THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS YOU MISS OUT ON.

———————-

GOD LONGS TO BE CLOSE TO YOU.

ISAIAH 30:18(NLT): SO THE LORD MUST WAIT FOR YOU TO COME TO HIM SO HE CAN SHOW YOU HIS LOVE AND COMPASSION. FOR GOD IS A FAITHFUL GOD. BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO WAIT FOR HIS HELP.

WE WERE MADE TO KNOW GOD SO HE CAN SHOW US HIS LOVE AND COMPASSION. ENOCH, JOB, HEZEKIAK, AND DANIEL HAD A CLOSE RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD.

HOSEA 6:5(ESV): FOR I DESIRE STEADFAST LOVE AND NOT SACRIFICE, THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD RATHER THAN BURNT OFFERINGS.

———————-

BENEFIT TO GETTING CLOSER TO GOD.

JAMES 4:8(NIV): COME NEAR TO GOD AND HE WILL COME NEAR TO YOU. WASH YOUR HANDS, YOU SINNERS, AND PURIFY YOUR HEARTS, YOU DOUBLE‐MINDED.

GOD HAS ALWAYS WANTED TO BE IN THE MIDST OF HIS PEOPLE. I WILL BE YOUR GOD AND YOU WILL BE MY PEOPLE.

———————-

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT…

WHEN WE PRAY IN THE SPIRIT, WE LEAVE EARTH AND ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF GOD! I CORINTHIAN 1:29 (KJV): THAT NO FLESH SHALL GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE.

PRAYING IN THE SPIRIT CAUSES THE SINFUL NATURE OF OUR BODIES TO COME UNDER THE SUBMISSION OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.

———————-

PRAYER IS HOW WE COMMUNICATE WITH GOD.

CHARLES SPURGEON “WHETHER WE LIKE IT OR NOT, ASKING IS THE RULE OF THE KINGDOM.” LUKE 18:1(NIV): THEN JESUS TOLD HIS DISCIPLES A PARABLE TO SHOW THEM THAT THEY SHOULD ALWAYS PRAY AND NOT GIVE UP.

PRAYER IS HOW WE COMMUNICATE WITH GOD. WHEN WE PRAY WE TAP INTO THE POWER AND WILLINGNESS OF GOD.

———————-

PRAYER IS AN INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE

PRAYER IS AN INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCE THAT TAKES PLACE BETWEEN THE CREATOR AND THOSE WHOM HE HAS CREATED.

PROVERBS 15:29: THE LORD IS FAR FROM THE WICKED; BUT HE HEARS THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS.

BECAUSE PRAYER IS A UNIVERSAL SUBJECT, IT IS AN ABSOLUTE NECESSITY IN EVERY PERSON’S LIFE.

———————-

WE MUST RELEASE EVERYTHING THAT WE FEEL.

SOCIETY TEACHES US TO MASK OR SUPPRESS EVERYTHING WE FEEL, BUT WHEN WE COME TO PRAY, WE HAVE TO TRAIN OURSELVES TO DO THE OPPOSITE. WE MUST RELEASE EVERYTHING THAT WE FEEL.

HEBREWS 10:22(NLT): LET US GO RIGHT INTO THE PRESENCE OF GOD WITH SINCERE HEARTS FULLY TRUSTING HIM.

AS HUMAN BEINGS, WE HAVE BEEN CREATED WITH REAL EMOTIONS AND REAL DESIRES. SOMEWHERE ALONG THE LINE, THE REAL PERSON WILL COME OUT. WE ARE NOT TO HIDE ANYTHING FROM GOD.

———————-

PRAYER IS THE ONLY VEHICLE AVAILABLE

PRAYER IS THE ONLY VEHICLE AVAILABLE THAT ALLOWS US TO VIEW HUMANITY WITH ALL ITS FAULTS AND STILL UNDERSTAND THAT GOD IS PERFECT.

PSALM 25:8: GOOD AND UPRIGHT IS THE LORD, THEREFORE, HE INSTRUCTS SINNERS IN THE WAY.

WE MUST NOT GET RID OF THE PRESENCE OF GOD IN OUR LIVES JUST BECAUSE WE HAVE BEEN OFFENDED BY PEOPLE.

———————-

NO PLACE IS CLOSED TO INTERCESSORY PRAYER

INTERCESSION IS THE TRULY UNIVERSAL WORK FOR THE CHRISTIAN. NO PLACE IS CLOSED TO INTERCESSORY PRAYER; NO CONTINENT, NO NATION, NO CITY, NO GOVERNMENT, NO ORGANIZATION, NO OFFICE, NO POWER ON EARTH CAN KEEP INTERCESSION OUT.

ISAIAH 62:6: ON YOUR WALLS, O JERUSALEM, I HAVE APPOINTED WATCHMEN; ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT THEY WILL NEVER KEEP SILENT.

WE ARE COMMANDED TO PRAY WITHOUT CEASING AND PRAY PRAYERS OF THANKSGIVING IN ALL SITUATIONS.

———————-

WE HONOR GOD

WHEN WE COMMUNICATE CONTINUALLY WITH GOD THROUGHOUT OUR DAY IN PRAYER, WE HONOR GOD BY SHOWING HIM WHERE OUR TRUST LIES AND WE CAN BE ASSURED THAT HE WILL SHOW US OUR NEXT STEP.

GOD LOVES HEARING FROM HIS CHILDREN. GOD IS INTERESTED IN US; HOW WE THINK, WHAT WE SAY, AND WHAT WE DO.
