Note on why we should pray

Hello friends,
Today I would like to share some important reasons why we should pray, after reading the scriptures in the bible. There is a couple of things that I think we need to be more conscious of. We need to let prayer be a part of our lives.
The first Chapter I will share is 1 Thessalonian 5:17 says ”Pray continually’’ this means, that we should pray without season, there should not be a particular time for us to communicate with God, or some people pray when they are passing through hardship, according to first Thessalonian, it tells us to keep praying, because our enemy doesn’t sleep. I know some people will feel how can you do that, I thought prayer is getting down on your knee. Prayer is something that should be part of our lives, continually thanking God for everything we go through and praying for others. 1 Thessalonian 5: 17 says ”Give thanks in all circumstances’’, this verse shows us that we should give thanks no matter the circumstances we are facing, we should find something we are thankful of. 1 Thessalonian 5:18 says ‘‘Do not put out the spirit’s’’ this means we have to pray continually, I was thinking about Paul’s life, I don’t remember a single time when Paul said, hey God will you give me a bigger house, or more clothes, or money, rather he prayed for our enemy. I know it is a hard one. We are to pray for food and shelter, Matthew 26:41 sayswe are to pray not to be tempted” this scripture means no matter how holy we are, we are never too holy enough to  not be tempted, that is why we need to pray to God. we are to pray for forgiveness, also to pray for others, not to do wrong, that evil will not persist, pray to be strengthened in spiritual power. Colossians 4:3 illustrates how we are to pray for open doors of others. Philippians 1:4 talks how we are to pray with joy and not sorrow. We are also to pray for the word of God to be spread clearly, 3 John 1:2 shows us how we are to pray for good health. We are to pray for God to get us all connected.

Philippians 4:6 (NIV) ”Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God’’. It just means that we should ask God, not doing things on our own, making him be in part of our lives and ask.
Most of the time we don’t ask him, we need to learn how to ask him in the right way, what are the things hindering for God to answer our prayers because many people get easily discouraged when praying, they feel like there is no point of praying. Well, I do believe there is a huge need to pray, otherwise, God would have not given us reasons why we should pray. God is waiting the whole time for us to ask, he is the perfect gentlemen. God wants to do more for us, that we are willing to ask for.  He just wants to ask through the right way by praying.
So I want to encourage you today, keep up praying continually and never stop.

Why we should be Thankful.

Hello beautiful people!
Today I have a great message for you, I will like to share and discuss about the verses I read in the bible today and I’m sure you will be able to learn from it.

firstly I want to say, it’s always good to give thanks to God for our lives, according to the book of Psalm 107 which says “oh give thanks to the lord for he’s good and his mercies endeared forever” because God has been good to us, we own him a lot in terms of, thankful, his mercies which means that everything we receive from God today, doesn’t mean that we are too kind or qualify it, but his mercies. These mercies of God doesn’t cause us anything but the gratitude of our heart requires for God to do more.

Psalm 9:1 ”I will give thanks to you lord with all my heart, I’ll tell of all your wonderful deeds“ Giving thanks to lord must genuinely come our heart in order for God who sees in secret will reward you. Likewise is it important to tell his wonderful deeds, remain yourself share testimonies to people what God has done for you, these could help others to build their faith in God and strength their desire!

Psalms 7:17 says “I’ll give thanks to the lord because of his righteousness” As we read it is obvious to give God thanks for his righteousness because of the prize Jesus pay for us in the cross of Calvary.

Psalm 100:4 It’s important to visit the house of God more especially where
we can kneel down and thank him, express our gratitude for his goodness in our lives, however it’s also important to meet other people to thank God together. Psalm 106: says ”We should praise the lord for his love endures forever” there’s other part in our lives which desire to thank God , not only his goddesses but also his love that endured forever. His goodness and love which endures forever require our thanksgiving.

Philippians 4:6-7 says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation by prayer and petition with thanksgiving present your request to God“ it doesn’t matter how challenges you may face, you thanksgiving to God, must always be presented, because in most cases God doesn’t look at our challenges but our thanksgiving, he sees our thanksgiving as a way to solve our problems. Secondly your request can be known through your thanksgiving, therefore it’s important for us to be always thankful.

2 Corinthians 4:15 “ all these is for your benefit so the grace that is reaching more may cause people to overflow to the glory of God“ we need God’s grace which will helps us in times need.

Not everyone can be thankful to God but it takes a free heart and free spirit to be thankful , secondly ungratefulness can also bring hindered or blockage in our mind, heart, not to thank him freely without heart such as openly our heart, ( it’s one thing to know God, and also thank him) not every is grateful

We should all be grateful and thankful in any situation we find ourselves so God can do more in each of our lives:)
