Prayer

Prayer includes respect, love, pleading and faith. By praying, we express our helplessness and endow the doership of a task to God. Praying benefits us at the level of action, thought and attitude. It is a cornerstone in spiritual practice because it enhances the potency of chanting the Name of God, gives us Divine protection from ghosts and departed ancestors, reduces ego, and increases our faith. Over time, frequent prayers help to dissolve our mind and intellect and through them we gain access to the higher Universal Mind and Intellect. It is also an effective means of awakening our spiritual emotion and experiencing communion with God and the Bliss that results from it. This section is dedicated to increasing our understanding of prayer through spiritual research, and to give us motivation to pray frequently and sincerely so that we can experience its tremendous benefits starting today itself.

What Does the Bible Say?

 

Pray for each other. Jesus set an example for us on what to pray. He prayed for His disciples and for every generation to come that would follow Him. His prayer was that God protect and strengthen them as long as they were in this world. Jesus also prayed for those who would come to believe in Him through the Gospel message (John 17).

Pray with faith. “So, you see, it is impossible to please God without faith. Anyone who wants to come to him must believe that there is a God and that he rewards those who sincerely seek him” (Hebrews 11:6).

Pray with worship and reverence. “Exalt the LORD our God! Bow low before his feet, for he is holy!” (Psalm 99:5). “‘Yes, Lord,’ the man said, ‘I believe!’ And he worshiped Jesus” (John 9:38).

You will know with confidence that God can hear you when you pray, so open that line of communication! Pray, knowing that no matter how far you roam, your connection with Him can never be lost!

“I pray that your love for each other will overflow more and more, and that you will keep on growing in your knowledge and understanding” (Philippians 1:9).

Prayer is not asking. Prayer is putting oneself in the hands of God, at His disposition, and listening to His voice in the depth of our hearts.

    Dear Apostle Israel,
    I am glad to see the website of JWTV and to share my comments about the healing, deliverance, prophecy and gospel services our Lord Jesus is doing using you. I am truly blessed by the services I follow in the YouTube channel of JWTV. I am currently living in China doing my PhD and I am one of continues followers. I usually comment on the sites that badly talk about the good works of Jesus Christ revealed through your services. I am eager to attend service in your church when I am back to country. I currently need your prayer for my wife and my three children who are currently in Ethiopia for their health, protection and blessings and my studies. I really need your prayer my apostle. May our Lord Jesus Christ continue to bless you! With the love of Jesus Christ!
