FELLOWSHIP WITH GOD
Fellowship with God through prayer offers believers a means of acknowledging the character and purposes of God, the opportunity to seek guidance concerning His will for them and allows them to discern His will. This is expressed in adoration, thanksgiving and intercession through Jesus Christ who has enabled believers to approach and draw near to God.
The direction of prayer is towards God and is in response to God's Mercy and Grace, His call, and His presence.
Prayer is concerned not only with the well-being of the one who prays but also a vital aspect of its purpose is to allow the will of God to be done, and to bring glory and honour to His Name. The Holy Spirit helps believers to pray in God's will.
God's people are commanded to bring their requests to Him. Petitioners may enquire of God to discover His will. God answers prayer that accords with his will
It is required that all pray for deliverance from enemies, from difficulty, for restoration, for protection and corporate prayer especially in times of crisis.
God promises to answer prayers petitioned in Jesus' Name for others, of individuals, of the oppressed and for healing.
Prayer is based on God's love for believers. Though His grace, He gives them things they do not deserve. An answer to prayer may not come immediately. Petitioners are to continue praying in earnest, sincerely. This requires patience, determination and a willingness to pursue God for the right outcome. God Himself pleads with patience towards His people.
Worshipping God is a divine command, He desires His people to be a worshipping people, worshipping Him alone for His deeds.
The offering of thanksgiving is usually for gifts received. It is important to give thanksgiving to God for His gifts and His works showing our gratitude for His goodness in all circumstances. Prayer offers believers a means of acknowledging the character and purposes of God and the opportunity to seek guidance concerning His will for them.
