The importance of prayer.
Prayer is a custom that is Biblical and traditional. David prayed seven times each day. Intimacy towards God. The Christian believe he shall pray turning to Jerusalem three times each day as is customary in judaism. At morning, afternoon (after dinner) , and at nightfall before sleep. You should pray, and meditate over the words of the Lord`s prayer at least three times a day. The New Testament, and old testament urges us to exalt God all times, be happy at all times, and preach wherever you go! Through the joy of the lord!
1 Thessalonians 5:16.18 ¨Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.¨ Joshua 1:8 ¨Keep this Book of the Law always on your lips; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.¨ Philippians 4:4 ¨Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!¨ Read Psalms chapter 1. It is beautiful.
When we pray to God respectively, we approach him as his beloved sons, and daughters whom he loves in spite of who we are, and what we do. We know he knows what we need. Matthew 6:6-8. We stand boldly before him as we know we are bought by the blood of Jesus, and that there is no deed we can do which makes Him love us any more... We pray to him as our heavenly Dad, and I always adress him as eternal, holy, and most high whenever we mention him in prayer.
We always end our prayers with amen/amein as is custom. I use Jesus/Yasha/Yeshua, and Ehyeh Asher Ehyeh (Ahayah) / Jehovah / Yahweh / Yahweh Elohim / God / Kyrie when addressing God. I never pray to the holy spirit.
The Christian believe that Heaven is on our side, and that our ancestors, and ascended friends are ever watchful and pray upon us day and night. Remember them, and live with them as heavenly citizens, and as soldiers with a mantle under orders. For success! Remember that you are on a mission that will never end until the world is conquered, and that it WILL be conquered, therefore you MUST conquer it! Away with apathic, gullible circus Christianity. Don`t be Christian if it`s only because ¨if feels good, and safe to be saved.¨ Search your heart. Are you really under discipleship by the Master? Let heavenly prayers come to life! You are their only hope – stationed on battleground Earth. Never forget this!
Understand: Let the prayers, and yearnings they had before death come to life through_you_. We believe we are fighting as Heavenly citizens, creating a peace revival, and love for the Earth. We believe Jesus, and our heavenly brothers, and ancestors has a fixed, unified agenda that must be pushed forth by an equally unified church here on Earth! We live responsible for all that happens on Earth, or is not Jesus the King? We believe we can pray for anything, as long as we seek God`s will first, and are true to our heavenly selves. God wants us to be happy, and drive fancy cars. :) For all this honors the creator. We seek to be available 24/7. We strongly believe all humans have the ability to hear God speak, and get the greater gifts of prophecy, healing, speaking in tongues, and advocate his blessings on Earth.
1 Corinthians 12:27-31 ¨Now you are the body of Christ, and each of you is a member of it. And in the church God has appointed first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then workers of miracles, and those with gifts of healing, helping, administration, and various tongues. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret? But eagerly desire the greater gifts. ¨ Joel 2:28 "And afterward, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your old men will dream dreams, your young men will see visions.¨
The magnificent art of prayer, and it`s mysteries:
Prayer is one`s intimate life with God. It is the place of protection during the sanctification of the Christians. To me; the sanctification process of coming closer to God is one`s prayer life. It can be likened to the Kaballah: the mystical aspect of our life`s growth. Our goal? Union with God as is Christian mysticism. Becoming vessels of His glory wherever we go. Our members are encouraged to worship whenever awake. Yet when the mouth is silent before bed is when we pray our morning prayer. Pray constantly constantly throughout the day with our being so that your subconscious is trained, and in-tuned with Heaven, and his laws. ¨Meditate upon his law¨ day and night, as King David said. Meditate upon his greatness, or his mighty names. I do this in protection from spirits, and it works. Try to pray at least one hour total of prayer in tongues each day – tuning into his pallet for your life. Your higher self. It makes you beautiful. Pray for everyone you feel God leads you to pray for. Meditation is a state of mind, not necessarily staying quiet. I personally like to open my mouth to exalt, declare, and worship when praying. But silent prayers can be just as powerful. It is the intent that matters. Some of the most powerfully anointed persons I`ve met pray in a very orthodox, silent, slow, and contemplative way. God loves difference, and we are all different.
Prayer is magick. Manifesting positive change. God is the conductor of the orchestra. Go to source, and get your life! Throw a blessing at those you meet. Smile, and be happy throughout the day. The world will recognize us through love. But prayer can also be a shout of despair. To begin with, prayer is often a work of dedication. Prayer-warriors are the backbone of the Christian army. For some: Prayer is a way of life as with the monks. It is a state of peace, and union with God you never want to leave. At the end of the day, I first dedicate my mind before prayer, relax, and thank God for the day, and for his promises. Embrace a loving father God! Remember your breath, and put the day`s worries in a black box. You don`t need them. God`s mercy is new every morning. As I lay myself down to sleep, I chose to focus on what`s positive, and thank God for it; looking foreward to enjoy more adventures with him, as he creates something new each day. I long for him, and secure my soul in the loving presence of Christ. Then I sleep.
Go out in the garden with dedication of prayer: Just being. Just relaxing, and letting your eyes fleet around. Let God lead you into intimacy as he shows his mighty ways in the beauty of nature; just as he revealed the nature-parables to Jesus. We are to be a pleasant offering of prayer, and exaltation to God continuously; meditating, and fascilitating his greatness to others through wisdom. That is walking with God. When I tune into this source field in nature, is when I receive joy, strength, and often revelations. You will learn to love it so much that whenever relaxing, or on vacation: your programed state of mind of relaxation is relaxation with God: Simply prayer.
In a busy world, I think we need the jews to teach us that God is first, and business second. Orthodox jews pray for hours every day in their rituals. Christians bend their knee once every Sunday. Can we bring ourselves to that mindset? Immagine there is no television! You are simply like Adam in Eden; staring at the stars, and the forest; wondering about God. You, creation alone with God. Adoring God. I say tv, internet, and all aside from God`s creation is fictional! GOD is reality. Shed yourself of false idolatry, and remember: Everything that is not eternal is ROT! God, nature, and his creation is reality. What this relates of God speaking to you is reality. Ease out, and let God tend your heart. Look to beauty, but sadness can also be beautiful. To find yourself; you need to be with God in nature. I also recommend a pilgrimage, a hike in the mountains, or some other physical journey of exercise to get rid of all the garbage, and addictions to the electronical world. You will find your TRUE nature, and your higher self, your aura will start shining, as God pours his strength into you. I recommend you journey with perhaps one, or two other Christians for at least a week. I recommend prayer-retreats for every person. You will find yourself AMAZED after you unplug, and realize you had no CLUE how programmed, and addicted you were. You will then descend from the mountain/journey feeling like a prophet with a mission, and a strengthened sense of identity, purpose and renewal. They you will take new stances to your former life, and change habits to move on. Remember: Life is a spiritual journey which I say HAS to be exemplified in through physical exercise, hiking, and unplugging to give you the best life God has for you.
I love you… After being unplugged, you will learn to lead other brothers to stay in God`s presence of contentment, and equilibrium with Heaven and nature: As God is your sole provider, not the TV. That is our approach when leading a life of continuous prayer. Sometimes we need a good brainwashing. I recommend training yourself to take baths in nature, as this is very purifying, and energizes the body.
Prayer is fighting together. Prayer is spiritually uniting the body of the church. Prayer is nurturing the roots that gives growth to flowers. Prayer-warriors, and interceders are just as important as preachers, for praying is paving the road; consciously co-creating reality with God. I say this as is true! The state of the church is in constant fight, and without preparing to reap through prayer: At least I only strive. For prayer is like sowing seeds, and watering plants. It`s mental preparation at it`s best.
Prayer is giving thanks. In nature. In wonder of Him, the magnificent reality of creation, our friends and our family. The things that matter. I pray that you unplug and realize what I did. That it`s family, childhood friendships, broken bonds, and your childlike dreams that matters. When journeying into the wild, on higher altitude of a spiritual mountain, you get insight, and see your daily life down there, realizing what you REALLY seek, and discovering futile patterns. Discovering your heart. This will come to you if you take a pilgrimage. Prayer is the loving walk of life letting him carry you through, like surfing down the waters of a wild river, or being lifted above the clouds by eagles. Prayer is looking into the sun like eagles, and aiming high; being carried by the prayers of our brothers in Heaven. Being one with our ascended masters. Living in another dimension. Surfing the pathways of the angels, and dripping milk, and honey of abundance. Love and light.
I give thanks, and position myself on the fantasy journey of adventure through life, in a sanctification process with staff in hand, like an alien having a pigrimige through life. It is a habit that becomes our normal devotion to God when we get to know Him personally. I can stay before his throne by his grace. Amen.
