When I consider a lifetime of Spiritual exercise what stands out is prayer, intercession, and supplication. As a child some of my earliest memories are prayer conversations with God. That conversation never stopped, but it changed and grew in faith and knowledge. Anything that was accomplished was God’s grace and was effected in conjunction with Spirit prayer. Yeshua may have spent more time in prayer than anything, as it opened the prophetic and miraculous. He said of the temple, “My House shall be a house of prayer”. He prayed when He fed multitudes. When He raised Lazarus from the grave He prayed. When He faced the hardest times of testing He prayed. In the garden before the cross, He sought agreeing pray with His disciples.
This is not a teaching on prayer, but the beginning of a prayer outreach to/for the followers of this blog. We believe the power of God is released through prayer and you are God’s people – His habitation on earth. I know many of you from our online interactions and I have looked at your profiles and blogs. We trust the Spirit in prayer, “In the same way, the Spirit helps us in our weakness. We do not know what we ought to pray for, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us through wordless groans. And he who searches our hearts knows the mind of the Spirit, because the Spirit intercedes for God’s people in accordance with the will of God.” (Romans 8:26-27) We do not see you as an audience, but rather, “you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” (1 Peter 2:5) We don’t compare or duplicate anything, but what is in God’s word, confirmed in the Holy Spirit. (2 Corinthians 10:13) Finally, surrender is our service. Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. (Romans 12:1) Father God, I thank you that you hear our prayers and will respond in your mercy, goodness, and lovingkindness.
