Prayer is one of the most powerful tools we have at our disposal as Christians.

Unfortunately, most Christians view prayer as simply trying to persuade God to do what they want, when they want, but there’s much more to it than that. In its simplest form, prayer is getting in agreement with Jesus about things that He’s already done for us: such as accepting His lavish, unconditional and everlasting love. However, when we find ourselves in difficult, compromising, or desperate situations we can lack the confidence and assurance that we’re worthy of His benefits. We doubt that we can bring our situations to the Lord. We think we have to “get ourselves together” or “stop sinning” in order for God to hear our prayers, let alone answer them.

I believe this is why the Bible emphasizes praying with one another. In Matthew 18:19-20 “Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” (NKJV) There are over forty examples in the Bible of people praying together, for one another, or mentions partnering with one another for spiritual growth.

I want to be your partner in prayer. By partnering with me you have a friend who can meet you before the LORD as you make your requests known to Him. As we pray together you can trust that Christ is there with us as He promised in the Bible that He would be. Christ knows our needs before we even do. The bible says He is making intercession (pleading our case) before God even before we ever ask. In the same vein you have been placed on my heart, and I have prayed for the very situation you are facing.

God does not need us to be “living right” before he will hear from us. He does not condemn us. He loves us, but sometimes our own negative thoughts will keep us from coming boldly before the throne of Grace. No matter how bad things are we must have confidence that we are loved by God and He wants to hear from us.

When we allow ourselves to be in agreement with Jesus about who He says we are, it means that we draw our worth and identity from Christ and from Him alone–and not the world. So if the bible tells me that I’m forgiven, I don’t allow condemnation or shame to haunt and plague me. As I practice living my life according to who Jesus says that I am–and who He died for me to be–I live with the realization that God is not keeping a journal of my mistakes, and I’m free to live without a cloud of guilt hanging over me.

Today, most Christians pray for material things like a house, a car or their career. But when we read the New Testament epistles, we don’t see Paul praying for material possessions. Now let me be clear, I’m not suggesting that these things aren’t important, but one of the primary things for which Paul prayed was that the “eyes of our understanding would be opened,” that God would open our hearts to see and understand and operate in the world according to who we are in Christ and in the power of the Holy Spirit. If we as saints can get a revelation, a heart understanding of exactly who we are in Christ, that we are complete and whole and victorious because of the finished work that Jesus did on the cross, and further that Jesus defeated the works of the enemy, many of the day to day challenges that we face would no longer be a problem. Issues like feeling unloved, low self-esteem, emptiness, people approval wouldn’t be as prevalent, if we could just see ourselves as God sees us and embrace the vision; not just theoretically, but experientially.

In Phil, 3:10, Paul desires that he “might know Him [Jesus] and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His suffering…” The word “know” suggests the most intimate of connections–and that’s the way Jesus wants to know you, and wants you to experience Him in an intimate way through prayer, worship and thanksgiving.
