RHAPSODY OF REALITIES: There Are Positions Of Prayer - Today Message (July 22nd 2016)


Continue in prayer, and watch in the same with thanksgiving (Colossians 4:2).
Did you know that there’re positions of prayer, and that the different positions you assume when you pray are important? For example, lying on your bed to pray is one of the positions of prayer. When you lie on your bed to pray, it’s meditative. You’re likely going to start out praying in tongues, because there’s a lot that can come through your spirit, such as worship; you find that you’re worshipping and praising the Lord upon your bed, like the Bible says, “Let the saints be joyful in glory: let them sing aloud upon their beds” (Psalm 149:5). You can really be stirred on your bed as you pray like that, with the anointing welling up and overwhelming you. Before long, you might soon bounce off the bed and start pacing the floor.

Then, there’s kneeling down to pray. When you want to pray on your knees, it’s important that you’re specific and clear as to the things you want to pray about. In Ephesians 3:14-15, Paul said, “For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ…” ; and he clearly enumerated the things he wanted to pray about.

Then there’s the standing position. Jesus said, “And when ye stand praying, forgive…” (Mark 11:25); why? It’s because when you stand to pray, it’s often a prayer of faith that proceeds from your mouth; you start making decrees! However, the Master was quick to caution that you don’t harbour unforgiveness against anyone; you must walk in love, so your prayer will be effective. He wants your prayer life to be effective. In studying the Word, you’ll learn more on positions of prayer.

God wants us to continue in prayer. As long as there’s one sinner in the world, we must keep praying. As long as the rapture of the Church hasn’t taken place, we’ve got to pray. Prayer is a heavenly ministry; it’s part of our priestly ministry as believers; always take it seriously.

PRAYER
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the revelation of your Word to me today. I’m confident, and therefore glad, that I have answers to every request I make in the Name of Jesus. I celebrate your life in me, grateful that in you I live, and move, and have my being. My life is eternally for your glory, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

Further Study: || 1 Timothy 2:1 I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, [and] giving of thanks, be made for all men; ||
|| 1 Corinthians 14:14-15 For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue, my spirit prayeth, but my understanding is unfruitful. 15 What is it then? I will pray with the spirit, and I will pray with the understanding also: I will sing with the spirit, and I will sing with the understanding also. ||
|| Psalms 145:18 The LORD [is] nigh unto all them that call upon him, to all that call upon him in truth. ||
