Our LORD God in the name of Jesus hear our P R A Y E R.

Today, a few words of comfort to those who are unemployed, in financial distress, lonely, weary, sick, frightened about life circumstances or simply disillusioned about life: Let us be reminded what Paul, the apostle said: “[PRAY WITHOUT CEASING]” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

Many throughout time have doubted and said, in essence, “This is easier said than done.” However, Jesus emphasized, saying: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth” (John 4:23–24).

“And I say unto you, [ASK, AND IT SHALL BE GIVEN YOU; SEEK, AND YE SHALL FIND; KNOCK, AND IT SHALL BE OPENED UNTO YOU]. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened” (Luke 11:9–10).

“[AND ALL THINGS, WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN PRAYER, BELIEVING, YE SHALL RECEIVE. AND WHATSOEVER YE SHALL ASK IN MY NAME, THAT WILL I DO, THAT THE FATHER MAY BE GLORIFIED IN THE SON. IF YE SHALL ASK ANY THING IN MY NAME, I WILL DO IT” (Matthew 21:22) (John 14:13-14).

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but [HE HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).

“The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe” (Proverbs 18:10). “Our help is in the name of the LORD, who made heaven and earth” (Psalm 124:8).

“IT is a good thing to give thanks unto the LORD, and to sing praises unto thy name, O most High: To shew forth thy lovingkindness in the [MORNING], and thy faithfulness every [NIGHT]” (Psalm 92:1-2).

“My voice shalt thou hear in the morning, O LORD; in the morning will I direct my prayer unto thee, and will look up. For thou art not a God that hath pleasure in wickedness: neither shall evil dwell with thee. The foolish shall not stand in thy sight: thou hatest all workers of iniquity. For thou, LORD, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield” (Psalm 5:3-5, 12).

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” (Romans 16:24).
Power of Prayer

PRAYER is the key to communicate with GOD (Matthew 6:9-13)..

“The LORD is far from the wicked: but [HE HEARETH THE PRAYER OF THE RIGHTEOUS]” (Proverbs 15:29).

“For the righteous LORD loveth righteousness; his countenance doth behold the upright” (Psalm 11:7). “The LORD liveth, in truth, in judgment, and in righteousness” (Jeremiah 4:2).

Our Lord Jesus Christ says: “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must [WORSHIP HIM IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]. But the hour cometh, and now is, when the [TRUE WORSHIPPERS SHALL WORSHIP THE FATHER IN SPIRIT AND IN TRUTH]: for the Father seeketh such to worship him” (John 4:24, 23).

“[WHEN THOU PRAYEST], enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, [PRAY TO THY FATHER WHICH IS IN SECRET]; and [THY FATHER WHICH SEETH IN SECRET SHALL REWARD THEE OPENLY]” (Matthew 6:6).

“[WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS], as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: [FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM]” (Matthew 6:7-8).

Let us also be reminded how the Apostle Paul said: “P R A Y without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17).

In GLORY of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
