Prayer: Life's Limitless Reach by Jack Taylor
"....far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you.'"( 1 Samuel 12:23 )
As a believer your spiritual life will never rise above and stay above the level of your prayer.
In this fast paced world that we live in today many believers have found themselves in the place where their is little on no prayer in their life. Let it be know that prayerlessness is a sin, not just a weakness. Prayerlessness according to the author is a sin against God because God has commanded us to pray. All that God does, he does through prayer.
What is prayerlessness? It is when someone finds themselves in a place of praying less than they should, or than the Father desires. Prayerlessness like other sins may become strongholds in our lives, if left over time. We are told that we should pull down every stronghold. We have all been in a place where we have struggled in your prayer life for one reason or another, and even though we have repented, confessed, sought forgiveness and cleansing, after a short while we are back to a life of prayerlessness but its time to begin to pay close attention. If you are vacillating and can't seem to break free from the cycle, its time to deal with it as a stronghold in your life.
Do you enjoy praying, or do you find it boring and just a duty to perform? We often want the power of God without seeking him. but the truth is, we will not have the power, the miracles or boldness unless we prayed
When we go to pray we must go believing that what we are about to pray about will happen. The early church was very effective because they we devoted to prayer, and whenever they prayed the Spirit started moving. Their prayers were continuous, fervent and effective.
In this book Jack Taylor brings you to a place, where you see exactly where you are. This book compels you to stop reading and to pray. You get a renewed desire to pray. For too long all we have been talking about prayer but have not really been praying. Its time for us to keep God's command of prayer because "Nothing lies beyond the reach of Prayer, because nothing lies beyond the reach of God"
The Word of God is living and active. If you confess the Word of God over your heart and life, it will not return void. We encourage you to meditate on these confessions.
And I have put my words in thy mouth, and I have covered thee in the shadow of mine hand, that I may plant the heavens, and lay the foundations of the earth, and say unto Zion, Thou art my people. (Isaiah 51:16)
The Lord has put His words in my mouth therefore I shall be his mouthpiece, and because He covers me I shall not be afraid to speak.
