Prayer can be described as a time of opening yourself up to your Creator and the pouring out of your heart about what you want God to do through you and in you.
Please commit to pray for Walks #31 and #32.
Prayer is essential to the life of all believers, and p
rayer is essential to cover the Pilgrims with the awesome presence of His Holy Spirit.
Jesus talked about prayer:
“And when you pray” (Matthew 6:5).
“My house will be called a house of prayer” (Matthew 21:13).
“If you believe, you will receive whatever you ask for in prayer” (Matthew 21:22).
“My prayer is not that you take them out of the world but that you protect them from the evil one.” (John 17:15).
“My prayer is for them alone, I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message.” (John 17:20).
The followers of Jesus prayed in the upper room:
“They all joined together constantly in prayer, along with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brothers” (Acts 1:14).
The early Christians prayed:
“They devoted themselves to the apostles teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer” (Acts 2:42).
Peter prayed before the healing of the Lame Beggar:
“One day Peter and John were going up to the temple at the time of prayer-at three in the afternoon” (Acts 3:1).
Paul told the Group in Romans:
“Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer” (Romans 13:12).
He also said:
“My prayer for you is that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ-to the glory and praise of God” (Philippians 1:9, 10, 11).
Colossians 1:9-12 makes it clear that we are to pray for others:
“For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you. We continually ask God to fill you with the knowledge of his will through all the wisdom and understanding that the Spirit gives, so that you may live a life worthy of the Lord and please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God, being strengthened with all power according to His glorious might so that you may have great endurance and patience, and giving joyful thanks to the Father.”
The message is clear.
WE ARE TO PRAY AND COMMUNICATE WITH OUR SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST.
WE MUST PRAY AND UNDERSTAND THAT HE IS IN CONTROL, AND ONLY HIM.
Without His leadership, Emmaus is merely something that men put together, so p
lease join with me and commit to pray for these walks.
