Prayer: Effective Communication with God

Prayer: Effective Communication with God

Effective communication with God is the key to overcoming any life problem.

Absalom overthrew his father King David, and attempted to kill him.

The despondent wandered in the wilderness with no clear-cut of what to do.

The situation caused the most honorable man in Israel to cry like baby. During the distressful time, David lamented in prayers to God.

He communicated with his Maker during distress as the scripture reported,

prayer“David went up by the Ascent of the Mount of Olives, and wept as he went up; and he had his head covered and went barefoot. And all the people who were with him covered their heads and went up, weeping as they went up” (2 Samuel 15:30).

 

Lesson on Communication with God

family prayerChildren of God ought to turn to God through prayer whenever they are in difficult situations.

The world is comprised of both positive and negative circumstances; therefore, Christian should pray to overcome them all.

Since God loves his people, he will answer their prayers. He will not abandon his own people during crisis.

God will surely respond to the cries of his children, and make their faces shine in spite of any difficult situation that may have come their way.

Prayer is simply a means of communicating with with God, and the Creator is ever willing to see his children engaging in it.

Believers must pray an tell the Creator how they feel and what they need. There is nothing whatsoever that a Christian should not talk to God about.

Christians should not be afraid to talk to their Heavenly Father.

He is the omniscience and almighty!

He has the reservoir of all goodness at his disposal.

The more believers pray to him the better their lives will become.

Through prayers to God, mountains will come down, and valleys will level.

Those who pray to God and reserve their trust in him will not be ashamed under whatever condition.

“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and show thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not” (Jeremiah 33:3).

Have You Received the Baptism of The Holy Spirit?

Have You Received the Baptism of The Holy Spirit?

The baptism of the Holy Spirit is God’s special gift made available for all Christians to enjoy and live a prosperous life.

Christians of our days ought to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit just like early days Christians did. Some early Christians received the special blessing as narrated by Paul,

 

“And it happened, while Apollos was at Corinth, that Paul, having passed through the upper regions, came to Ephesus. And finding some disciples he said to them, “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?” So they said to him, “We have not so much as heard whether there is a Holy Spirit.” And he said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” So they said, “Into John’s baptism.”

Then Paul said, “John indeed baptized with a baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on Him who would come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.” When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. And when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues and prophesied” (Acts 19:1-6).

 

Lesson on receiving Baptism of the Holy Spirit

 

raptureChristians should understand what baptism of the Holy Spirit means.

It means empowerment of God’s power through the Holy Spirit.

Baptism of the Holy Spirit is not the same as “Entrance of God’s Spirit.”

 

The entrance of God’s Spirit comes to all Christians during conversion (when someone becomes born again), but the baptism of the Holy Spirit is especially given to Christians who seek it.

Meanwhile, all Christians need the baptism of the Holy Spirit to faithfully serve God in this wicked world.

Therefore, all believers should seek the baptism of the Holy Spirit like the early apostles during Pentecost (Acts 2:1-3).

 

We can pray in church and/or solicit prayers from church elders (like Paul prayed for Ephesus brethren – Acts 19:6).

We can also individually wait on God through prayer and fasting to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit.

A dedicated prayer is needed to secure the baptism of the Holy Spirit; therefore, believers should pray to have it.

 

Prayer on Receiving the Holy Spirit
