By His death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way.
Praying always with All-Prayer and supplication in the Spirit.
But you, dearly beloved friends, must continue to build your most holy faith for your own benefit. Furthermore, continue to pray in the power of the Holy Spirit
When a man or woman is a willing vessel, God can do mighty exploits through them, and for millennia the “All-Prayer” of such vessels advances God’s purposes. Spirit-guided intercession flows thru weak vessels of clay, who submit to Him. All such Spirit-led prayer fills up the incense bowl of “All-Prayer” on the golden alter.
Such Spirit-influenced prayer will be flung to earth to fulfil God’s purpose for man. All such Spirit-influenced pleas, are prayed in spirit and truth – to the glory of God. All such “All-Prayer” as outlined in Ephesians 6 – is part of our spiritual weaponry. All such “All-Prayer” – is destined to bring about God’s eternal plans and purposes – a purpose outlined from Genesis to Revelation – that Christ is all and in all.
Such prayer is destined to DEFEAT the strategies of the enemy. Such prayer is designed to PREPARE the way for the salvation of the lost. Such prayer is designated to BUILD UP and edify the body of Christ in holy faith.
All such prayer will accomplish God’s ends and God’s way – in God’s time. All such prayer has been uttered down the centuries thru willing earthen vessels. Vessels who meditate on God’s word and pray in the power of the Spirit. Earthen vessels – who intercede for others in accordance with the will of God.
Scripture is replete with intercessors – who fell on their face before the Lord.. intercessors who were guided by the hand of God – to offer prayers in the will of God.. names of beloved saints that pepper the pages of Scripture:- Abraham, Moses, Joshua, Samuel, Esther, Nehemiah, Peter, James – are but a few.
Unsung lovers of God who’ve seasoned the path of the body of Christ over time; each adding tears of intercessory love to the brimming bowl on the heavenly alter – all combined to contribute to heaven’s plan – in the throne ministry of God’s will.
And every Christian is called to offer their lives as a living, interceding sacrifice – mingling their prayers with the crushed life of our great – high, heavenly Priest. Every believer has an equal opportunity to become a participant, praying priest – linking their intercessions with those of past mighty men of faith and love.
All God’s children can participate in some incomprehensible way – through this unfathomable gift and mysterious privilege of – “All Prayer” Should we not fly to the open-access of the throne of God’s grace and plead... LORD teach me to PRAY.
Teach me to pray aright - in fellowship with the Father. Teach me to pray into You Will - thru the leading and guidance and interceding of Your Holy Spirit. Teach me to pray to Your Praise and Glory. Teach me to pray in this bloody battle of the ages. Teach me to pray willingly. Teach me to pray into Your will, as a willing vessel used by You – oh, and teach me to pray effectively.
Teach me to pray the effective and effectual prayers of a righteous man – and cover me in Your garment of righteousness – trimmed with humility. Teach me to intercede so that I may contribute to that incense bowl of All-Prayer. Teach me to pray into your plans and purposes with understanding – a deeper understanding and awareness of Your divine and ultimate intention.
Oh Lord – teach me to pray. Teach me, Lord, to pray with those who like Jude have prayed before - but you, dearly beloved friends, must continue to build your most holy faith for your own benefit. Furthermore, continue to pray in the power of the Holy Spirit Jude 1:20
Teach me Lord to REMAIN IN CHRIST– teach us to remain in His love and guard and keep ourselves in the love of God; to expect and patiently wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ – Who will bring us unto life eternal. Jude 1:21
Oh, teach me, Lord, to live and to pray into YOUR WILL…and to.. show mercy to those who doubt You – to some have mercy those who waver and doubt. Jude 1:22
Teach me, Lord, to INTERCEDE for others.. and to - save others by snatching them from the fire and to take pity and show mercy with fear, while hating even the garments that are stained by the flesh and polluted by their sensuality Jude 1:23
Oh, Lord, teach me to KNOW HIM and to pray to Him - Who is able to keep us without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present us unblemished, blameless and faultless before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation, ecstatic delight, Jude 1:24
Teach me, Lord, to be in FELLOWSHIP with You - the one only true God Saviour through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory, splendour, majesty, might and dominion, power and authority, before all time and now and forevermore – Amen. see Jude 1:20- 25 Oh Lord Teach Me To Pray.
