Revolutionize your Prayer Life

Divider
Nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will.

Matthew 26:39


Prayer can be a revolution—an overthrow of a pattern of defeat in our lives and for those we love. We forget how powerful our prayers are because we get into a rut of staring at our circumstances and wondering if God really hears us. Satan will do everything in his power to discourage us from seeking after the Lord in prayer. He knows the incredible damage we would havoc on his kingdom and plans.

So it’s time…time to stop feeling sorry for ourselves and start a revolution in our prayer life. The best example of how to pray under pressure comes straight from the example of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in Matthew 26:19.

P – Personal relationship with God the Father. “My Father…”
Jesus expressed His complete confidence in their relationship with each other. The Father and Son were in constant communion. Because of Jesus’ sacrifice—we too can experience a personal relationship with our Father in heaven. We are His children whom He loves infinitely.

R – Risk that our prayers may be answered in a different way than what we imagined. “if it is possible…”
Our baffling dilemma in prayer is that God can do the impossible. However, what if He doesn’t do as we ask? It’s a risk we choose to take because of trust. Either we believe that God is in control or we don’t. Trust is a huge step for the revolutionary prayer warrior.

A – Acceptance of God’s timing and purpose. “Let this cup pass from me…”
Revolutionary praying isn’t filled with anxiousness and stress about what may or may not happen. It’s a calm deep within our spirit that everything is going to be alright if the Lord should remove our hindrances or if He should not. We know He’s going to do the best thing.

Y- Yielding our will to His will. “Nevertheless, not as I will, but as you will…”
When we lay down our desires and expectations at the foot of the cross, we experience freedom we never thought possible. We know in our hearts that He’s working all things for our good even if He goes another direction. This yielding allows the Holy Spirit to do His great work on our hearts and minds.

Prayer

Dear Lord, I want to revolutionize my prayer life to build up Your kingdom and tear down Satan’s plans. Strengthen me to trust in You. In Jesus’ name, amen.

In His Service,
