Experiencing Christ

Not Crying for Help, but Fulfilling God’s Need

Matt. 18:19  Again, truly I say to you that if two of you are in harmony on earth concerning any matter for which they ask, it will be done for them from My Father who is in the heavens. Matt. 6:9  You then pray in this way: Our Father who is in the heavens, Your name be sanctified;  (10)  Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth.

How do we bind what God intends to bind? How do we loose what God intends to loose? The Lord’s answer is to ask “in harmony.” This is the meaning of prayer, and this is the prayer of the Body. The highest point of our working together with God is to ask in one accord for God to accomplish what He intends to accomplish. The true meaning of prayer is for the praying one to seek for the accomplishment of the will of the One to whom he prays. Prayer is an indication that we want God’s will. It is to say that our will is standing on God’s side. Without this kind of prayer, there is no real prayer.

How many prayers today are for the expression of God’s will? How many prayers are a setting aside of oneself and a seeking for the accomplishment of God’s will? How many believers are there who truly work together with God in prayer? Oh! Let us realize that a selfish heart is no less prominent in prayer than in other things! How many of our own requests are standing in the way! How numerous are our own wills, our own desires, our own plans, and our own cravings! One great and common error in our thoughts is to consider that prayer is an expression of our needs and that prayer is but our cry to God for help. Little do we realize that prayer is to ask God to fulfill His need. We have to realize that God’s intention is not for the believers to accomplish their will through prayer. God’s intention is to accomplish His own will through the believers’ prayer. This does not mean that believers should not ask God to fulfill their needs. It only means that believers should first understand the meaning and principle of prayer.

Thought of the Day:

How do we bind what God intends to bind? How do we loose what God intends to loose? The Lord’s answer is to ask “in harmony.” The highest point of our working together with God is to ask in one accord for God to accomplish what He intends to accomplish. The true meaning of prayer is for the praying one to seek for the accomplishment of the will of the One to whom he prays.

Prayer Confession: Heavenly father, i thank you for this revelation. i choose to pray your will so that you accomplish what you intend to accomplish here on Earth as it is in Heaven.
