Prayer: The Bottom Line

by John and Ruth Greene

jesus mount olives“And Yahshua answering, said to them, ‘Have belief in Elohim. For truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says, shall be done, he shall have whatever he says. Because of this I say to you, whatever you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them. And whenever you stand praying, if you hold whatever against anyone, forgive, so that your Father in the heavens shall also forgive you your trespasses. But if you do not forgive, neither shall your Father in the heavens forgive your trespasses.”- Mark 11:22-26, ISR98

The kind of prayer that moves mountains is prayer for the fruit of Elohim’s [‘God’, YHWH] Kingdom. You might think that it is impossible to move a mountain into the sea, yet Yahshua [Jesus] used this picture to show that YHWH, your Heavenly Father can do anything. (“Moving Mountains in Your Life“; “Messiah Teaches about Fruit in the Lives of People“)

daydreamElohim  is fully able to do anything. He will answer your prayers, but not as a result of your positive mental attitude. You must meet certain conditions. You must be a believer. You must not hold a grudge against another person or against yourself. You must not pray with selfish motives. Your request must be for the good of His Kingdom. To pray effectively, you need trust in the power of your Heavenly Father, not faith [trust] in the object of your prayer. Where you place your trust is especially important! When you focus only on your request, you will be left with nothing if your request is refused. (“Disciples of Messiah and Spiritual Fruit“; “YHWH’s Track of Righteousness“; “The Power of Prayer Depends On You“)

Your example for prayer is your Messiah, Yahshua [Jesus]. (Mark 14:35-36) It’s not uncommon for prayers to be motivated by personal interest and desires, even selfishness. People love to hear that they are entitled to have what they think is their heart’s desire! Yahshua [Jesus] prayed with His Father’s interests in mind. When you pray, by all means, express your heartfelt desires, but always with the knowledge that His Will and the purpose of the Messiah must be above yours. (“Which Shepherd Do You Believe?“)

family-praying-300x210You’ve probably heard some pious person praying publicly “if it be your will.” YHWH doesn’t want you to pray in doubt. You need to know and learn what the Will of your Father is.” He wants  you to pray in belief and knowledge. Believe, while making certain that your prayers focus on Elohim’s interests rather than yours. (“A Lifestyle Message from Jeremiah“;”A Hidden Lifestyle Message from Messiah“)

“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 righteousness. 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.
