Teach Us How To Pray

Hello! I hope you have a minute, because there are 3 things I’d like to run by you.

The first thing is that while praying for you, a clear thought zoomed in and the Lord said, “You are to lean on Me.” To lean means to redistribute your weight; take a load off; access another source of strength. Go ahead and grab His arm, lean into Him, it’s an invitation to you, so take it! “…The eternal God is a dwelling place.” -Deuteronomy 33:27

The second thing is that a few weeks back, I asked you to send in your questions about prayer. Check out the P.S. section and you’ll find the answer to one of your questions.

The third thing is: JAPAN. Last night I was busy praying for friends who have gone to Japan to help. The nuclear crisis has now reached the highest rating of level 7, which is the same as the Chernobyl disaster. Let’s ask God to step in and minimize the damage.

Have a great week & weekend!

P.S.- Q&A on Prayer
Alyssa who oversees Prayercentral’s correspondence and serves at IHOP, KC & I give you feedback on:

QUESTION: Are there specific prayers that work better than others?

Here at the Int’l House of Prayer, we encourage people to learn and pray from the “apostolic prayers” found in the New Testament. That is, to simply find a place in Scripture where one of the apostles mentioned praying for a church/body of believers. One example of this is Ephesians 1:15-19, where Paul prays:

“For this reason, because I have heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love toward all the saints, I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, and what is the immeasurable greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his great might…”

When we use the prayers of apostles as our basis in asking the Lord to break in, we have the opportunity to use a model of prayer from those who were taught how to pray by Jesus Himself.

Several other apostolic prayers include Colossians 1:9-12 and Philippians 1:9-11.

ALSO another resource for YOU at Prayercentral is:

Here you will find prayer models that you can apply in approaching numerous situations that you might be praying for.

Love,
Alyssa & Kathleen
