Why You Must Pray – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional June 22nd

(The Reason For Prayer)

TO THE BIBLE: Matthew 6:7-8 NIRV
“When you pray, do not keep talking on and on. That is what ungodly people do. They think they will be heard because they talk a lot. Do not be like them. Your Father knows what you need even before you ask him.”

“Since God already knows what’s on our minds and what we need, why then do we need to pray?” you might want to ask.

First, prayer isn’t all about asking God for what you need; rather, and more importantly, prayer is a romance of righteousness: a time to fellowship with God.

Secondly, there’s a big difference between life in the natural world, and in the spirit realm, where God lives.

Just as physical laws and principles govern life in the physical world, spiritual laws equally govern the spirit realm.

Ezekiel 36:26-36 gives us a better understanding of this. God made several beautiful promises to the Israelites about the wonderful things He’d do for them.

However, very strikingly, in the thirty-seventh verse, He said, “…I am ready to hear Israel’s prayers for these blessings and to grant them their requests. Let them but ask…” (TLB).

What’s God telling us here? He’s letting us know that we have to work together. Even though He wants to do great things in your life, there has to be a connection of faith; you have to give Him the permission to do what He wants to do in your life.

We serve a kind, loving, great, and gracious God who daily loads us with benefits (Psalm 68:19).

Furthermore, Matthew 18:18 says, “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” That means “heaven” will give the authority and the go-ahead for whatever you decree on earth.

If you say “no!” to sickness and bind the works of the devil in your family or in your own body, the Holy Spirit will endorse it. You have to take a faith stand in prayer for things to change. This is your responsibility.

Matthew 7:7; Luke 18:1; Ephesians 6:18

I take advantage of the power in the Name of Jesus against sickness, lack, failure, and defeat, and I declare that I walk in the reality of my kingdom inheritance, basking in the glory of Christ and strengthened by His supernatural might in my inner man. Blessed be God!
