The Doctrine of Prayer

Prayer is a powerful weapon in the believer’s life.  An important point to note first is that we are not to use prayer to try to get God to do what we want done. Many believers try touse prayer to get their own way, not God’s way.  Prayer must be compatible with God’s will and God’s way. Sometimes that may be our will and our way, but other times it may not.
1JO 5:14-15  “And this is the confidence which we have before Him, that, if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us in whatever we ask, we know that we have the requests which we have asked from Him.”
Prayer is not designed to get us out of trouble, but rather to express our helplessness, our humility, our total dependence on God, and our recognition of His grace and His mercy toward us.  Prayer is not what we want for ourselves, but what God wants for us.  In fact, prayer is an expression and an extension of Bible doctrine resident in the soul.
We fail in prayer because we fail to understand and utilize Bible doctrine correctly.
JOH 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it shall be done for you.”
Prayer was never designed to fulfill our lusts and desires; prayer is designed to fulfill the will, plan, and purpose of God for our lives.
This book looks at power of prayer and proper way to utilize that power to glorify our Lord.
