Unless the Lord builds the house, its builders labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over the city, the watchmen stand guard in vain. Psalm 127:1
All Christians are called to a lifestyle of prayer and to bear one another’s burden through intercession. Prayer is that unique channel of dialog with you and the Lord. It is entering into relationship with God so that we may determine His will in a matter and call His will into existence in the earth. Prayer is the one power on earth that commands the power of heaven.
Prayer is the way that we, the branches draw the nutrients we need from God, the vine to produce the fruit of His Spirit in our lives. As a royal priesthood our roles are to minister first to God by praising, worshipping, and communing with Him in prayer and meditation on His word. Our ministry to others is an overflow of what we have received in our time alone with Him.(John 15:5, 1Pet 2:9)
Prayer enables us to be obedient to God, united to Him and empowered by Holy Spirit.
Intimacy and discernment is cultivated as you invest time in your relationship through prayer, praise fasting and renewing your mind.
