A human being lives, but he is given life.
When we receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit, a deep, an inner desire will begin to develop within us to be more in prayer to our heavenly Father. (Zech. 12:10) Christians have known the importance of prayer, but many times we have made efforts to take time in prayer, but those special seasons of prayer were motivated by some crisis and don not continue very long. Our problem is that we have become very self-sufficient in meeting our own needs and the needs of the church. We have been taught our whole lives to rely on our own efforts, but to do the work of God we need to rely on Him.
Our God is an amazing God and if we put our trust in Him we will see our lives blossom in ways we never thought our lives could. We can either yield to this God-given desire, or ignore it. However, if we want to experience to deep things of God and the fullness of Christ in our lives, we must yield to this desire to pray. Only then will our plans be Gods plans, and our activities be God’s activities.
Jesus said in (John 10:30) “I and my father are one” everything Jesus did He did under the direction of the Father”. (John 14:10) “Do you believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the father who dwells in me does the works”. The question is how did Jesus get such an oneness with the
Father? The answer is through prayer, through the daily communion with the Father.
This 40 day study is designed to do just that in your life, during these 40 days you will experience empowerment to be victorious over Satan and the strength to witness for Christ.
