Sub-topic: The Art of Prayer

Bible text: Luke11:3

In the Last part of this series, we talked about intercession prayer where we stand in gap for others to establish the kingdom will of God for their lives. Today we proceed to the Supplication art of Prayer. In other word known as Petition. Trusting the Holy Spirit for His utterance and illumination again.

 “Give Us day by day our daily BREAD” { Luke11:3}.

Supplication Prayer is a humble reqest to God for believers needs. It is also called Petition Prayer. { 1Sam1:17, 1John5:14-15}.

Whenever Prayer is mentioned, this is what easily comes to our mind i.e asking from God. Whereas Supplication is just an aspect/kind  of Prayer. We spend much time and energy bombarding heavens with our request ignorantly which is not supposed to be so. What is NEEDED MOST in this kind of prayer is Living faith, Revelation and Trust in the written word of God, not the carnal energy we exert on it.{ Matt6:25-33, Jn14:14, Lukes12:29-33, James1:7-8}.

The daily Bread is for all children of God who depend and trust in Him as their Abba Father.{Matt15:26}. So if you’re reading this and you are yet to be identified with Jesus the Son of God, you can do that now by accepting, believing and confessing the Name of Jesus as your personal Lord and Saviour{Rom4:9-13}. Hustling is not for the children of God. It’s for the Fatherless{Prov4:14-17}.

As heirs of the kingdom of God through Christ Jesus we could supplicate for the following:

In supplication Prayer we engaged the following instrument for quick answers to our petition and request on time:
