Jesus taught…

Jesus taught his disciples how to pray which was a patten or example that teaches me today about what the priorities of prayer should be.
should prayer begin from the point of honouring the father to forgiven our neighbour even still our enemies looking towards our human needs being meet daily ~ Luke 11

Believers in Christ are considered as citizens of the kingdom of God under a new government which consist of liberating principles that govern community life which also reflects on others in that frame work.
what is seen in religious institutions can be far from the patten or model of a church without walls.
Jesus said ” The kingdom is within you
The kingdom doesn’t come by careful observation, Luke 17:20 what was jesus trying to say?

May be religious culture has taken our attention when the eternal principles of kingdom life should be the only structures unseen physically more like enriching in our hearts socially towards people we come into contact with?

So how does this principle of prayer connect with this kingdom concept?

I guess it goes back to what is priority in the sight of God.
What would you consider a priority people – places – institutions – buildings or things ?

Back to the point of prayer the most prominent word in The Lords prayer was the word “US ” when prayer is only me oriented then the boundaries of prayer are shortened.

The words of the prophet Isaiah

Isa 54:2 “Enlarge the place of your tent, And let them stretch out the curtains of your dwellings; Do not spare; Lengthen your cords, And strengthen your stakes.

As an example this scripture reminds me not to limit God but rather to prepare for the unexpected.

There are two stories comes to mind about prayer… One is Job and the other is Jabez…
What is so encouraging about their prayers was the fact that “change” of attitude change their own destiny.
When they prayed for the people far or wide in terms of the conflict they experience their request was granted.

In conclusion

Jesus mentions leadership over the evil one & his temptations against the people of God. The father promise he will keep us on this journey because he is alone the kingdom the Glory and all the power we need for ever…Amen.

Fellowship is life

  1. Pj, I am jumping out of my seat for joy, you got it!!!!! Matthew 27: 51 Behold the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; May our Christ Jesus expand your prayers into the next territory and the next and the next and on and on, Amen

    • James I’m seeing significant changes in those areas you & me have been praying for but what’s overwhelming is our prayers cover great territory “US” no room for satan to slander or discredit any one
      Love covers a multitude of sin even the sin of our brothers & sisters in Christ not forgetting those who don’t know him yet.

  2. Amen, i like your ending quote “Fellowship is life” – God designed the church for two specific reasons. 1. For a gathering of believers to come together and act as a body which glorfies God and edifies one another. That is when we experience God’s life and power in our midst. Thanks for sharing
