PRAYER? 021715

Bible Group Praying TogetherPrayer 1] Listen for God. Meditate on His Word. Apply the revelations you get to your life. Prayer 2] Don’t worry.  Give your problems to God; trust Him; get peace. Like Phil. 4:6-7.  Prayer 3] Trouble? Pray.  Sick? Pray for each other so that you may be healed.  God can and will fix it.  Pray together, pray separately, pray for each other, pray for those who depend on you.  Like James 5:13-20.  Prayer 4] Pray without ceasing.  Not regular praying. It’s an attitude, an awareness of God’s presence; God is here inside you; He’s listening.  You feel it in a song, or a story, or a spoken truth, when God smiles and says, in that still small voice, “Wow, isn’t that great!”  A little baby, a puppy, a kitten, a rose bud.  That’s God.

So how do you get into this zone?  “Seek the Lord while He may be found.” (Isaiah 55:6). “Seek His Face“, ( 2 Chronicles 7:14) “Draw near to God.” (James 4:8)  You feel God moving.  You quit asking God for stuff, and He shows you more of Himself.  What Jesus said in John 17:  “As You are in Me and I in You, they may be one  .  .  in Us .  .  . they may be brought to complete unity.”  “Complete unity” with God, Jesus and us, is what Paul means by “pray without ceasing.”
