Do you believe prayer can change the out come of someone's life in eternity or do you believe it is what it is and because people have free will we are able to go to Hell if we want and no prayer can change that. Or is God's Word and "open door" to be given as the Way, the Truth and the Life for those who the Lord Calls. Many are Called but few are chosen. As we seek the understanding of prayer let us begin with the example for all of us, Jesus, Yesusha our King. Did Jesus pray? I believe the Word tells us Jesus prayed daily, that HE rose early in the morning hours before daylight to go to the Father in prayer. (Mark 1:35/https://biblehub.com/mark/1-35.htm) Amplified Bible 1987
The disciples came to Jesus and ask Him to teach us to pray. This is what He told and taught them.
"Our Father Who is in Heaven, hallowed be Your Name, Your Kingdom come, Your Will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Give us daily our bread and forgive us our sins, for we ourselves also forgive everyone who is indebted to us. And bring us not into temptation but rescue us from evil." Teach Us to Pray (Luke 11:1-13) | Bible.org
bible.org/seriespage/38-teach-us-pray-luke-111-13 : Amplified Bible1987
This prayer is to our Father and it is asking for HIs Will to be done and that the Kingdom of God to come on the earth as it is established in Heaven.
There is so much in just this short prayer really nothing else is needed because the Lord provides for what is His and it is His Will that His Kingdom rule come to the earth as it is in Heaven. If God our Father is ruling and reigning on the earth as in Heaven, we would lack nothing. So there would be no need to as for anything else, but because the Kingdom Rule has not yet been established here on the earth, we need to seek the Lord for provision and protection. Because perfection in us is still a work in progress, many have not yet learned to "Love" as the is established in the Kingdom of God, we need to continue to ask for forgiveness and to seek protection from the evil ones who seek to destroy us.
Does the Word of God change anything? Are we required or do we have access to pray the Word of the Living God? What does the Word tell us about praying the Word. Is the Word "alive?" Or is it just words on a piece of paper?
