30 Days Of Prayer
As our Easter 2012 service, Ransomed is quickly approaching, our desire as a church in Temecula is to put a strong emphasis on prayer. We think it is vitally important to be constantly praying for God’s will over Reliance Church and that is why we are making such a strong effort to cover this event in it.
The greatest privilege a Christian has is prayer. Prayer is not only a privilege, but it is also the responsibility of every believer. Jesus said,
“Men ought always to pray and not lose heart” -Luke 18:1
The simple definition of prayer is talking to God, letting our concerns and requests be made known to Him, and listening for His response. When we pray, we admit our need for God and our total dependence on Him. It is only through a relationship with Jesus Christ that we have access to God (1Timothy 2:5). We approach God in Jesus’ name, not our own. Prayer is not intended to be a means of trying to get from God what we want, but rather, a means by which we enable God to give us what He wants. Regarding prayer, Billy Graham said,
“Prayer is the rope that pulls God and man together. But it doesn’t pull God down to us; rather it pulls us up to Him.”
The Bible commands us to, “Pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). The Apostle Paul exhorted believers to pray “always with all prayer and supplication” (Ephesians 6:18). As believers, we are to pray for our own needs, seeking God’s help in our daily affairs. We must never think that our requests are too insignificant or too overwhelming to bring before the Lord. As Christians, we are to prayer about everything, confident that God hears us, cares about us, and acts on our behalf.
We ask that you join us in 30 Days of Prayer as we lift up every aspect of our Easter service so that other may hear and receive salvation from simply Jesus.
