For the new creation in Christ Jesus, prayer is more than a religious activity; prayer is more than a request. For the New Testament believer, prayer is a fellowship. Prayer is bringing us and God together in oneness. Prayer is a fellowship with the Father through the Holy Spirit in the name of Jesus. It is not a duty, but a delightful experience in sweet discourse.
In prayer, we learn to take our rights and privileges. With our prayers we can change and alter anything for good. Prayer is a place of getting yourself rubbed – off in God presence, it is an arena where God’s word comes to reality in your heart. No man is greater than his prayer life. Unction and the anointing of God’s Spirit come in increasing measure in the place of prayers.
Anytime God intends to do great and mighty things in a nation or among people; He would first set men into praying, because there is an item in the plan of God that requires our prayer. Prayer affects eternity and God would never deny the power of prayer. Prayer is an intercourse that brings into oneness. It is a union, a fellowship.
