“THREE IMPORTANT ELEMENTS OF PRAYER”.
Pray without ceasing (1 Thessalonians 5:17).
Prayer is an important aspect of who we are as Christians; it’s our priestly ministry to pray. Jesus said, “men ought always to
pray, and not to faint” (Luke
One of the elements of prayer is praying in the Name of Jesus. Jesus gave us the power of attorney to use His Name, which means when we pray, we’re standing in His stead: “Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you” (John 16:23).
The second important element of prayer is that we pray in the authority of the Word of God, and the revelation and insight given to
us by the Word of God.
The third element is that we pray by the power of the Holy Spirit. Some Christians pray and nothing happens because the words spoken aren’t inspired and communicated by the power of the Holy Spirit.
When you study the Book of Acts, you’ll find that the apostles took advantage of these three elements of prayer: the Name of Jesus, the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.
