Prayer – The Prosperity of Prayer

The prosperity of prayer

 We must pray about making good decisions. We must be and stay prayed up in order to make those quick and right decisions. In the Gospels, Jesus always prayed before making decisions and He always prayed before moving in a praticular direction(We will look at that later on) so how much more should we be prayed up in order to just function throughout the day. We must pray with reason and correctly

 

 
How can we learn to pray correctly?

 1) Obedience to scripture (wisdom)
We can’t pray correctly as we should until we are obedient to scripture. This means beinf doers and not just hearers of the word. The hardest thing for us to do sometimes is to follow up what we say, especially in matters of faith

 

 
2) Motivation by love
We can’t have wisdom in scripture until we are motivated by love. Love for others, love for ourselves, but especially love for God’s Word and for His will

 
3) Submission
We can’t be motivated by love until we are submissive in every way to Jesus. We must be actively seeking His will in order to be submissive to it.
