Prayer

Mar 12:38 And he said unto them in his doctrine, Beware of the scribes, which love to go in long clothing, and love salutations in the marketplaces,
Mar 12:39 And the chief seats in the synagogues, and the uppermost rooms at feasts:
Mar 12:40 Which devour widows' houses, and for a pretence make long prayers: these shall receive greater damnation.

Here's instructions on how NOT to pray - praying for a show - or pretense is not God's idea of praying - He's not in it for the SHOW - He's the REAL DEAL and wants us to be REAL too! Today October 31, many get dressed up and PRETEND to be something they are not - while it is fun in the natural realm - let us understand that it is one of the things God's HATES as we approach HIM - Flip side is HE LOVES it when we come to HIM in sincerity and truth! So let's not play church with God as there's no fooling HIM anyway!

Prayer:

Matthew 21:22
And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive!

What is left to be said? ALL THINGS! - IN PRAYER - BELIEVING! Don't you get the idea here that Jesus is trying to help His disciples see that it is not something we need to take years to LEARN to do - but rather an open door to confident conversation with HIS Father and ours! Hallelujah! What a Savior! Unlike our own human nature that once we find a good thing we try to keep it to ourselves - :-)

Prayer:

Matthew 23:14
Woe unto you, scribes Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows' houses, and for a pretense make long prayers, therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.

Here we see that prayers made for show or to impress someone are NOT what God is looking for! Heartfelt honest communication - that's our God's desire! So do NOT let your feelings of inadequacy in knowing how to pray STOP you from praying! All God is wanting is relationship and communication! :-)

Prayer:

Mat 18:19 Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.
Mat 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.

Wow what an encouragement to pray together! Notice the word "ANYTHING" - ! I cannot even think of any words to add to these words that Jesus Himself spoke to His followers! How many times has someone asked you to pray for them in their need and you say you will but then forget. Just stop immediately when they ask you and agree together in prayer on the spot! Don't procrastinate! Let's just DO it! Pray together MORE! "There HE IS" right in the midst of us as we pray! Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Prayer:

Mat 11:25-30 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.  Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight.  All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and [he] to whomsoever the Son will reveal [him].  Come unto me, all [ye] that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.  For my yoke [is] easy, and my burden is light.

In Luke this passage is connected with the return of Jesus disciples after He had sent them out two by two - to heal the sick and raise the dead and cast out demons and preach the gospel. He then goes on to call the weary workers to enjoy HIS REST  - for HIS yoke is easy and HIS burden is light - when the burden gets heavy and the days are dreary - stop and think that - HIS yoke is EASY - and HIS burden is light- the heavy ones are the ones of our own making!

Prayer:

Matthew 9:36 -38 "When he looked out over the crowds, his heart broke. So confused and aimless they were, like sheep with no shepherd. What a huge harvest!" he said to his disciples. "How few workers! On your knees and pray for harvest hands!"

KJV: Mat 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly [is] plenteous, but the labourers [are] few;  Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

HARVEST DAY! - It was this thought that the book Hebrews calls "the joy that was set before Him" .... - He endured the cross because "Harvest Day was coming"! Pentecost was the feast of harvest - when the Holy Spirit was outpoured and the Church was born! No wonder Jesus implored His disciples to pray for laborers! Notice who sends forth the laborers - not us - but the LORD of the harvest! It's HIS WORK and HIS KINGDOM and HIS FIELD and we are HIS LABORERS! :-)! Hallelujah!

WOW! Here is a direct instruction of our Lord as to WHAT to pray for/ When is the last time we followed this instruction? When we begin to pray as He instructed us to - this is what happens to our hearts - we become concerned about the harvest - because HE is concerned about the harvest! His heart begins to become our heart! May it be so today in greater measure within each one of us than ever before!
