Simple Fun Better Way to Pray

To understand HOW WE PRAY and WHY we do it, I believe a first thing in supporting ourselves, is to understand and appreciate the power and invincibility given us in the Holy Bible that is not from a man and his religious ideas of god that is empty & void – but rather the inerrant & infallible living word of the living God that will never fail to accomplish as claimed (Luke 1:37) ‘For the word of God will never fail.’





Additionally, the capstone to all this, is that You & I can know how to pray and why, keeping it simple and fun ... because the literal living word, as found in the Holy Bible gives us reason to do nothing but give thanks ... BECAUSE …


God does not & cannot lie (Numbers 23:19/Hebrews 6:18/Psalm 89:35/Isaiah 45:23/Titus 1:2),


God predestined us to be here this very moment in time (Romans 8:29/Ephesians 1:5),


AT SALVATION, accepting Jesus as Savior, God adopts us as His child, with Jesus as our brother (Romans 8:29), while being showered with God’s glory (Romans 8:30),


We ARE God’s ally & friend (John 15:15),


We ARE a joint heir with the author of life in the Kingdom of Heaven (Galatians 4:7),


We ARE God’s masterpiece (Ephesians 2:10), and with Him, white as snow (Isaiah 1:18)


We ARE already healed (1 Peter 2:24) of all sickness and disease (Matthew 8:17) as well as invincible from all virus and plague attacks (Psalm 91)


We ARE already sanctified (Hebrews 10:10)


We ARE already redeemed (Galatians 3:14)


We ARE already rich & prosperous (John 10:10) – and all because of GRACE – which is nothing shy of unmerited/undeserved favor!


AND if Jesus tells us in Mark 11:24, that we can pray FOR WHATEVER WE CHOOSE, and if we believe we have ALREADY RECEIVED IT, it will be ours - (not a crystal ball – we are merely to believe and not doubt)


And if He also tells us in Mark 9:23, that anything is possible if we will just believe …


DOES IT NOT MAKE PERFECT SENSE that our conversations and/or prayers with God should be thanking Him for all He’s done, what He’s doing, and what’s coming, and that we are predestined, with Him knowing all things and all our needs already?

SO as an example, day or night, morning, afternoon, walking, driving, or contemplating life, I may say all … or bits & pieces of the following immediately below … or something entirely different, as I feel the need to walk and/or talk with my friend & brother Jesus, as I so often do!

Thank you, Abba Father for all things in Jesus name (Ephesians 5:20)


Thank you Jesus, thank you Holy Spirit.


Thank you for this day and allowing me to be a part of it (Psalm 118:24).


Thank you for your continued blessings, favor, anointing, honor, and angelic protection


Thank you that I can know I am already healed (1 Peter 2:24) of all sickness and disease (Matthew 8:17), from head to toe, mind, body, soul, and spirit, and additionally invincible from all virus and plague attacks (Psalm 91), and all according to your living word.

Hallowed by thy name, and thy Kingdom come and thy will, not my will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.

Thank you for my daily bread!


Thank you that my debts are paid in full!


Thank you for the platform I seek to fulfill your purpose in and through me, with the funds to do what it is you have planned for me to accomplish (Jeremiah 29:11) – and to use those funds wisely according to your leading (Proverbs 3:6), thank you Holy Spirit!


Thank you for forgiving ALL of my sins, past, current, and future, at salvation, accepting Jesus as my Lord & Savior, never to be remembered again (Hebrews 8:12)


Thank you for the privilege of knowing that I can live on even though I die (John 11:25), because of faith and faith alone in Jesus Christ Living God


Thank you for keeping me far from temptation and delivering me from the evil one, whom I resist, knowing he must flee immediately at the name of Jesus (James 4:7) … and thank you for keeping me far from all demonic influences, challenges, and attacks against me.

Thank you that I can know that you know all things before they happen (Isaiah 46:10), and all needs before I have a need (Matthew 6:8/32), and for filling all those needs according to your perfect plan for me, from conception in the dark of my mothers womb (Psalm 139), until this very day and moment in time, delivering this very message.

IN COVERING FAMILY & MINISTRIES

And with each and every word just shared with you Lord, I thank you that you also receive these same words with favor as though coming from the mouth and heart of my bride, my wife Vicki, my son, Guy & his family, my daughter, Natasha & her family & husband Jason and grandson, Sutton William Goodship, and as well from extended family members & friends.


Thank you also for receiving these words with favor as though coming from the heart and mouths of all great leaders you have connected me with in TWNations, and as though from their families, and ministry leaders and families extended also, and throughout their nations.

Thank you also for receiving these words with favor as though coming from the heart and mouth of every Christian who has ever called on Jesus for eternal salvation, no matter if they are strong, weak or challenged in their faith, that they too, unknowingly, choose to lift you up for your glory and their benefit, thank you, Jesus for your mercy, for your grace.


All praise, honor, and glory be to you, in the name of Jesus Christ Living God, author of life, promised Messiah, and Savior of the world, hallelujah amen and amen.

3 QUESTIONS TO PONDER

1/ Is it necessary for us to ramble on and on with lengthy prayers to get answers & results? No! JESUS TEACHES! (Matthew 6:7: “When you pray, don’t babble on and on as the Gentiles do. They think their prayers are answered merely by repeating their words again and again.”)


2/ When Paul teaches 'Never Stop Praying' (1 Thessalonians 5:17) does he mean for us to be on our knees, head bowed, eyes closed, and/or laying prostrate all the time? NO, not necessarily! The meaning is for us to be aware and conscience of God every moment of our being, every day, speaking with Him as with any friend, showing gratitude, giving praise, honor, and glory for what was, what is, and what’s coming, according to every promise in His living word, never to fail us (Luke 1:37), right!  


3/ And what does Peter say in Acts 3:6? “In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, get up and walk!” TWELVE WORDS – DONE – HEALED – a no nonsense type of prayer – in the name of Jesus (His name), Christ (His title), Living (He lives), God (He is God), the Nazarene.

IN CLOSING

The idea behind this Simple Fun Better Way to Pray is not to say you are doing it wrong, but to let you know that your prayers, at any time, walking, driving, living life, with your children, spouse, friends, co-workers, can be long, short, few words, three lines, etc., as the words roll out of your mouth from a grateful and sincere heart in love with your Savior as #1 in your life ... BECAUSE THEN ... when Jesus is #1 ... everyone and everything about you, is seeing & hearing Him not you, therefore leaving you as real and transparent possible, thus the best dad, mom, best spouse, friend, co-worker, business partner, and so forth, you got this! :)


PS:

A/ When praying for specifics, healing, sickness, disease, concerns, and needs, etc., we must speak to our mountain we are desirous of bringing down to its knees, just as Jesus tells us to do in Mark 11:23 and doing so with unwavering focus on V23b (bold): "I tell you the truth, you can say to this mountain, ‘May you be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ and it will happen. But you must really believe it will happen and have no doubt in your heart."


B/ Don't focus on, and be telling Jesus about the problem, because He already knows all things and all needs already, right! SPEAK TO YOUR MOUNTAIN "Arthritis, in the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene (Jesus Christ Living God), you are no more; I resist you devil, and you must flee (James 4:7), be gone!"


Abundant blessings, favor, & angelic protection, with all needs filled, over you and all who read and/or listen to this teaching, amen, thank you, Jesus. :) :) :)
