So, what are some of the tools needed when it comes to being a lifelong disciple of Christ?
Let’s see what the Bible says about Prayer:
Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.
The Lord is far from the wicked,
but he hears the prayer of the righteous.
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.”
They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer.
Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer.
And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Be persistent and devoted to prayer, being alert and focused in your prayer life with an attitude of thanksgiving. (AMP)
2 Thess. 1:11
To this end we always pray for you, that our God may make you worthy of his calling and may fulfill every resolve for good and every work of faith by his power.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.
Prayer is a topic we often talk about, but the power of prayer comes from talking to God in prayer. In Children’s Ministry and at home, you can build up a child by praying for and with them regularly. Commit to praying specifically for the children God has given you and watch God’s power at work.
