PRAYER OF YOUR HEART

Why do Christians pray to God?

Christianity uniquely emphasises that a Christian can have a personal relationship with God. We should regard prayer as being the talking part of the relationship and a two way process at that. Jesus himself set down the model prayer for all Christians:

“This is how you are to pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as in heaven. Give us today our daily bread; and forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors; and do not subject us to the final test, but deliver us from the evil one” (Matthew 6:9-13).

Prayer has the benefit of drawing us into a deeper relationship with God – as we pray we learn more about his will for our lives.

Γερό-Παναής τῆς Λύσης Κύπρου (+1989):

“Χίλια λόγια ἀκοῦμε καί δέν κουραζόμασθε. Ἀπ᾽ τά λόγια τῶν Ἀκολουθιῶν, ὅμως, δυσανασχετοῦμε”.

BLOEMEN UIT DE HEMEL

Eenvoudig weergegeven de doelmatigheid van ons gebed is afhankelijk van de vraag:

—of wij het waard zijn om te ontvangen wat we vragen,

—of we bidden volgens de Wil van God [Uw Wil geschiedde…],

—of we zonder ophouden bidden,

—of we alle toevlucht te nemen tot God,

—of we als we vragen datgene wel gunstig is voor ons.

En de rechtvaardige, die de Heer nog steeds ‘Zijn ontferming’ afsmeekt, zal verhoord worden, want God weet, als Vader, toch heus wel wat je nodig hebt.
