The Rock of Prayer

by John and Ruth Greene

jesus-prayerPrayer* is part of the divine link to your life, to your heart and mind. Active regular prayer that lines up with scripture reflects an open heart to your Heavenly Father, as well as your trust and reliance on Him. Prayer is vital and alive! Opening up to scripture through personal study and increased understanding is a large part of this. Like any close relationship, you must make time for intimacy or risk losing that relationship. This could be roughly compared to a marriage relationship. Relationship involves a healthy give and take. A disciple must come to know the Heavenly Father over time. This is a process, not a one-time event. (“What Is Washing By The Word?“; “Christianity: A Crisis in Prayer & Spirit“; “Are You an Effective Listener? Listening & Your Relationships“; “Break Down Walls of Darkness with Prayer“; “Prayer & Life in Messiah“)

Prayer initiates conversation with YHWH and demonstrates your dependence on Him. Openhearted prayer shows your willingness to watch and listen to Him. Prayer is the cornerstone of your relationship, not the whole of it. Prayer that is in line with YHWH’s Will is powerful, not wishful thinking or fantasy. Prayer  is a powerful tool to help you root deceptions and strongholds from your life. The power of prayer has the capacity to change and heal. Abiding in YHWH’s Spirit has the same capacity. In YHWH’s power through the Holy Spirit, disciples have the authority for dramatic change and provision. Disciples are not beggars, but have the authority for healing power and life change, for themselves and others. (Isaiah 45:11; Matthew 10:1, 7-8; Luke 1:9; 9:1-2; Acts 3:1-8, 12; “Abiding in Trust“; “Are You Rejecting YHWH’s Holy Spirit?“; “Listening to the Holy Spirit“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“)

baptism of trust - Holy SpiritYHWH wants to abide in your life and to function with you through His Counselor, the “Set-ApartHoly Spirit, not simply to hear your prayers and to watch you struggle in the flesh. Listening to His Instruction and living in obedience as you learn to work with the Holy Spirit creates personal intimacy. This is a scary thing to many that believe that such intimacy is beyond them. Others insist on complete control. Healthy relationship has nothing to do with control, but with working in harmony. That is what your Heavenly Father wants for you! (“Called to Have Confidence in Messiah“; “Christians: Focused on the Messiah & His Purpose“; “Abiding With YHWH in Quiet Places“; “YHWH’s Prayer Shawl of Protection“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
