"Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them."
(Matthew 18:19-20 KJV)
It is so important to pray. Praying should come from a clean heart for the best results. So as we pray, asking Our Awesome God to forgive any sins we have committed since we last repented and to show us any sins that we don't know are sins that we may be committing. Usually If you pray long enough and pray focused on Our Awesome God, you will slowly find your sins and repent of them. It is a product of praying and so is the glow you feel doing it
When Jesus Christ threw the money changers out of the temple, He said that Our Awesome God's House was a House of prayer (Matt. 21:13). Jesus made prayer the most important thing in the House of God. Prayer must be found in the Church or it is not God's House. Again, to keep God in your Church you need many prayers every time the Church meets. It is another product of praying.
People who are praying should have a definite purpose of improving themselves toward Our Awesome God's standards of righteousness. Prayer gives you a clearer idea of God and what He wants for you. Your goal or purpose should be to approach that high goal of NO SINS that God has you headed for so heaven becomes your eternal home.
Praying has products for you 1) Seeing your sins as breaking Our Awesome God's laws, seeing those sins as God sees them and slowly stopping sinning, 2) Your Church needs to be a praying Church to be God's House, and 3) praying gives God's People a definite purpose of improving themselves toward God's standards. Praying is important if you are God's Child for you need to know your Father better and what He wants. If you don't pray, are you really God's Child?
Praying can even be addicting! You need encouragement and love from people that really believe in and practice praying. Join us or some other church that reads their Bible, prays and preaches that Jesus, the Son of God, died for your sins and rose on the third day. There is a wonderful joy in praying to Our Awesome God.
