Point to Ponder 218

Our world, our society is in a heap of trouble.  It's time we storm the throne of grace to reestablish order and peace that Christ's gospel can be spread everywhere.

PRAYER

When God commanded, “You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God,” He was also asking us to use His name correctly.  To do this He commands us to pray, “Call upon me in the day of trouble, I will deliver you, and you will honor me.”  Even the Psalmist writes, ”The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer.”

There are those who reason, “God knows what’s in my heart; therefore I need not pray.” How clever of Satan to use reason to cancel out Jesus’ promise, “Ask and it shall be given you, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.” 

God commands because he wants you to use His name to pray to Him.  This we do through Jesus who promises, ”Whatsoever ye ask the Father in My name He will give it you.” 

As breath is to life so prayer is to the Christian…IT’S VITAL!  Trust Jesus. Amen

“Sing and make music in your heart toward the Lord, always giving thanks to God the Father for everything, in the name of Jesus.  Ephesians 5:19, 20
