GREETINGS FROM THE TEMPLE …
“What Side Are You On?”
“We need to talk!” These very words can create a multitude of reactions depending on the person making the request. Whether it’s a spouse – best friend – family member – supervisor – or pastor, your reaction is guaranteed to be different with each one.
Let’s talk about prayer. Ok, this seems simple enough. Simple. Yes, this is the key word to prayer. Make your prayers simple. There is nothing difficult about prayer. Prayer is a simple conversation between you and our Lord and Savior. Make a simple request and receive an exalted answer.
“There are two sides to every prayer: An asking and an answering.” – Pastor V.S. Brice
Luke 23:42-43 is a request from man and a reply from God. This is a prime example of the two sides of prayer: Asking and Answering. God waits on us to make a request.
“Then he said, ‘Jesus, remember me when you come into your kingdom.’ 43 Jesus answered him, ‘I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise.’” Luke 23:42-43 (NIV)
“Prayer comes from the heart.” – Pastor V.S. Brice
All prayer begins with God, who is the source of prayer. Therefore, we must believe in order to receive. Simplify your prayers and make your requests from the heart.
“So, I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Luke 11:9 (NIV)
What side are you on? The asking side or the answering side? Routinely we are on the asking side of prayer. We move to the answering side when we obey God’s commands: Love one another – forgive those who trespass against you – honor thy father and thy mother – remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy. Seek Him first – Connect with God – Trust – Believe – Pray!
