Sub topic: The Heart of Prayer

Bible Text: Luke 11:1-10

Introduction:

 Prayer is an act whereby HUMANITY communicates with DIVINITY. It’s interesting to know that not only believers in Christ Jesus prays. { 1Kings18:24-39, Jonah1:4-6, Acts17:22-23}.

However a Believer in Christ Jesus needs to Know that Prayer is an HEART, ART and ACT in order for every means of contact with the divinity to be fulfilled and achieved. These three important phenomenon is very essential in the prayer life of a Christian. We are going to look at these three concepts extensively in this study.

  THE HEART OF PRAYER.

  • Biblically speaking the Heart represent who a MAN is {Male/Female}.

For as HE thinketh in his HEART, so is HE”{Prov23:7}.

 This Heart represents Humanity. While Divinity represents Spirituality. The reason why every other persons apart from christians can pray is because they also believed in some other divine beings{Spiritual beings} like Satan, Demons and other Idols. They are in affiliation with these false divinity and they also got their request granted from them but at the expense of their Eternal Soul.{Exo20:1-5, 1Sam28:3-20,Isaia66:1-24, Psa16:4, Acts7:39-43, Rev13:1-8, 18:1-19}.

 The Trinity God is the only true Divinity we should have intimacy with in the place of Prayer. And this is what Salvation does to us by changing our natural heart to a spiritual heart that seek for the only true God{Eze36:24-26, Heb10:22}.

  •  The Human Heart is also the Seat of FAITH and DOUBT. In this Kingdom of Light, Faith is the only currency we tender to achieve result in the place of prayer.

For with the HEART man BELIEVETH…”{Rom10:10}.

Now FAITH is the Substance of things HOPED for, the evidence of things not seen…But without Faith it is impossible to please him: for he that COMETH to God must BELIEVE that He is, and that He is a REWARDER of them that diligently Seek Him”{Heb11:1,6}.

“And Jesus answering saith unto them, Have FAITH in God.For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this MOUNTAIN, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not DOUBT in his HEART, but shall BELIEVE that those things which he saith shall come to pass; HE shall have whatsoever he saith.Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye PRAY, BELIEVE that ye RECEIVE them, and ye shall have THEM.”{ Mark11:22-24}.

This Faith only comes by HEARING, READING, MEDITATING, PRAYING and OBEYING the Word of God {Rom10:17, Acts17:11-12,Jude1:20, Luke9:1-6}.
