The eternal value of prayer: 10 practical reasons Christians are called to pray

July 27, 2010

    I.   It is the primary way to commune and fellowship with God

   II.  It is the only decree in which to combat spiritual warfare

   III.   It is a conduit from the holy spirit to the soul that allows for immediate access of grace and deliverance from enemies, the world, sin and temptation

  IV.    It enables the Christian to obtain empowerment through the holy spirit and to obtain particular spiritual gifts if God so wills

  V.   It causes and enables the regenerate Christian to enter the supernatural realm and to be merely used as a vessel that is subject to the direct power of God to attain and obtain extraordinary means to an end

 VI.    It is a primary means to thank God for gifts that He has freely bestowed through grace; namely, eternal life.

 VII.  The regenerate is immediately humbled the moment he is  succumbed to infinite power in prayer as he approaches the throne of grace to request interceding power outside himself.

 VIII.   It is a limitless opportunity to humbly submit requests to our Father and to seek his will in particular affairs

 IX.    To be healed or for the specific healing of someone else

 X.    Because believers are commanded to pray in holy scripture

Have you prayed today?
