What is Prayer? – S1 Ep2
Season 1 Episode 2 – What is Prayer?
Prayer, then is having the Spirit’s breath helping us to communicate, the Son’s blood making a way, and the Father’s ear attuned to our every plea. Our triune God provides all we need to pray — Dr. Harry J. York
During this season, Prayer will be the main topic point with the focus of drawing people back to prayer. Prayer is a powerful tool and it is our direct connection to the father.
During this episode, we will explore what is prayer with the hope of drawing people back to the very tool that connects them with God. Prayer. We must be reminded that every time we pray, we should always remember our standing by confessing our sins — Dr. H. J. York. What do I mean by standing? We must not forget that we are sinful, unholy and unrigteous people who rebel against the living God ever millisecond of our being. We can not approach the Holy of Holies without confessing our sins and asking the Father to remove our Sin Stained Hearts and give us a new regenerated heart that seeks after him. Through prayer we can then recognize his mercies.
This idea of more men, mighty in prayer bring forth a vision of unity in the body. When there is unity in the body of believers, we get peace. When there is peace within the body, the presence of God is visible and tangible. From the presence of God in our midst, we get answered prayers. James 5:17 states “… The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. ” Although we are sinful in nature, when we confess and ask of God’s forgiveness, he then turns his ear to us and listens to our ever plea.
