Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
-Prayer is written as palal in Hebrew & means invocation, orison, entreaty, supplication, plea, petition, request, litany, demand & exultation.
-Prayer can be classified into four main parts, that is; adoration (praise), confession, supplication (petition) & thanksgiving. It can simply be defined as a dialogue between God & man which forms a Divine-human relationship. It is important to note that prayer is not unique to Christians as all religions prayer, others like Muslims are often viewed to pray even more than Christians.
-In Gen 1:26, God made us in His image & likeness & gave us dominion over all the animals & all the earth. This brings about the concept that God uses certain human beings to impact the earth in response to our prayers or responds directly to our requests. For example, Abraham’s intercession for Sodom in Gen 18:22-23, Moses’ intercession for his people in Num 14:12-20, Israel’s desire to have a king against God’s wishes in 1 Sam 8:19-22 & Daniels’ prayer was answered in a night vision in Daniel 2:19. In the New Testament, Christ had to come down to earth in a human body to accomplish His divine assignment of saving all mankind from sin. This indicates that our bodies makes us legal on earth otherwise without a body our environment changes. Lastly, just as Jesus displayed a prayerful life; as He always prayed & mentioned that the Father always heard Him, we are instructed to pray without ceasing with the confidence that our Father always hears us.
We humbly implore You Father with thanksgiving in our hearts. Thank You for we have begun a new week in good health with knowledge that many did not make it today. Heal all the sick & comfort those who have lost their loved ones. Forgive us our trespasses & cleanse our thoughts & hearts from all unrighteousness. We place all our petitions before You Father, hear us. We praise, glorify & worship You. Amen
