INSIGHTS into Times of Devotional Prayer

Our Prayer time is to be filled with intermittent expressions of affectionate adoration and specific thanks giving with much prayer in the spirit (tongues). Express your longings for God.

Our prayer times is based upon the CONFIDENCE that WE CAN HAVE whatever things we ASK in God's will in Jesus Name, if we ask in faith that manifests itself with perseverance.

IF y o u ASK me ANYTHING in My name, I will do it.
— Jesus, John 14:14

We MUST prayer with CONFIDENCE that God DELIGHTS in our prayers and that  He withholds many blessings until they are persistently asked for in faith.

SUGGESTION: Approach Devotional Prayer in Three Ways

i.   By praying the devotional PSALMS

ii.   By praying through your Devotional Prayer LIST

iii.   By praying through the Direct, SPONTANEOUS Leading of the SPIRIT without aid of Psalms or a prayer list.

PRAY OUT LOUD to help control your thoughts during prayer.

Be PATIENT in prayer. Take time for SILENCE and meaningful REPETITION of your request with spontaneous sighs, groans and tongues (Romans 8:26).

FOCUS on the THRONE of GOD as described in Revelation 4.

I. O N E  s u p r e m e  REQUEST for MY LIFE

I ASK you, Father, to pour out your LOVE within my heart by the IMPARTATION of the Spirit (Romans 5:5).

To EXPERIENCE by the Spirit PERFECTED love for You and Your precious children (1 John 2:5, 4:12, 17-18).

FATHER, I long to be SUPERNATURALLY FILLED with the KNOWLEDGE of YOU and to be filled with YOUR perfected LOVE and PASSION for the Beloved Man, Christ JESUS that You might be ALL and ALL in me (Eph.4:10; 1 Cor.15:28).

GRANT ME a Holy Spirit IMPARTATION of revelation of the knowledge of the glorious Person who sits at Your right hand (Phil.3:10) That I might KNOW HIM.

II. F R U I T  - The CHARACTER of The LORD JESUS Formed in me
