In HIS Presence


Read: Luke 18:1-8

Meditation verse:

“Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the spirit and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints” (Ephesians 6:18).

Prayer is an intimate two-way communication between you and God. It is you talking to your Father as well as listening to Him speak to you. There are different types of prayers highlighted in the bible that you can pray for different situations.

PRAYER OF FAITH: This is a prayer you say, asking God for a specific lack or need. James 1:5-7 says “if any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord”. This makes it clear that a prayer of faith should only be said once for a particular need, because if you asked in faith and you believe that God has heard you, then there is no need to repeat the same request, as this would amount to doubting. All you need to do is to keep thanking God for granting your request.

PRAYER OF AGREEMENT: Prayer said by two or more people, concerning a specific request. Mathew 18:19 says if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. This is a powerful type of prayer for a husband and wife who are in right standing with God and living in harmony with each other.

PRAYER OF INTERCESSION: Intercession is standing in the gap in prayer for a person or persons who have invoked judgement upon themselves through their wrongdoing. You can pray this prayer for unsaved loved ones, backslidden Christians as well as for nations. Psalm 106: 23 says “therefore he said that He would destroy them, had not Moses, his chosen one stood before Him in the breach, to turn away His wrath, lest He destroy them”.

PRAYER OF SUPPLICATION: This is a humble, earnest heartfelt request made to God for your needs as well as those of others. You can make supplications for all men. 1 Timothy 2:1 says “therefore, I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men”.

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest."

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
