Paul's Prayer Life

00:00

Description

We should adopt the Apostle Paul's approach to prayer. We should spend enough time in God's presence so that His sympathies and desires should become our sympathies and desires.

Paul was a man whose heart was continually open to Heaven. He lived his life in the presence of God so that Paul’s will and God's will found themselves in harmony.

9 For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the Gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I make mention of you,

10 always in my prayers making request, if perhaps now at last by the will of God I may succeed in coming to you.

 11 For I long to see you in order that I may impart some spiritual gift to you, that you may be established; (Rom 1:9-11)

The word Paul used for God's will emphasized that which God desires. Paul was not praying based on an impersonal grocery list, but he is praying based upon a personal sense of what God really wanted. Such awareness can only come through taking advantage of access to God's presence and conversing with God the Father through the power of the Holy Spirit, and integrating the Scriptures into ones life. Of course, we should take Paul's approach as ours. We should spend enough time in God's presence so that his sympathies and desires should become our sympathies and desires. At that point it will not only be easy to pray in a healthy way, but also to receive effective answers.
