PRAYER

WE ALL NEED PRAYER. IT IS POWERFUL

Are any of you suffering hardships? You should pray. Are any of you happy? You should sing praises. Are any of you sick? You should call for the elders of the church to come and pray over you, anointing you with oil in the name of the Lord. Such a prayer offered in faith will heal the sick, and the Lord will make you well. And if you have committed any sins, you will be forgiven.

James 5:13-15

The Bible teaches us many things about prayer and it is an important part of our lives at Schaffer Road. Prayer is our means of communication with God. God desires us to pray to him on a consistent basis (1 Thessalonians 5:17) for help in our time of need (Hebrews 4:14-16). He desires that we pray seeking that His will be done even if His answer to our request is “No.” Jesus demonstrated this for us when he prayed on the night of his betrayal (Matt 26:31-39). God wants us to remember to pray with a thankful heart (Philippians 4:6), and we should remember to pray for others (1 Timothy 2:1-2). Jesus shows us a pattern we can use to help us to pray (Matthew 6:5-15).

There are a number of things contained in prayer, but some of the key points to remember when you are seeking God through prayer:

Personal praying could benefit from the use of a quiet space.

Address God properly.

Prayers don’t have to be long (avoid empty repeating of things).

Ask God to help you to love and forgive others.

Stay humble, because we all make poor choices, and need God’s Mercy and Forgiveness.

Above all things, be honest and sincere and ask God to help lead you toward the things that He wants you to know and to do.
