AN AUIDENCE WITH THE KING – COMMUNIING WITH GREATNESS – PRIVATE PRAYER
Luke 5:16 – But Jesus would often go to some place where he could be alone and pray.
On His robe at his thigh was written this title: Kings of all kings and Lord of Lords
1 Thessalonians 5:17:
Never stop praying
The angel of the Lord appeared to Him in a blazing fire from the midst of a bush, and he looked and behold the bush was burning with fire, yet the bush was not consumed.
Now Mount Sinai was all in smoke because the Lord descended upon it in fire and its smoke ascended from the smoke of a furnace, and the whole mountain quaked violently.
Thou wilt show me the path of life; in thy presence is fullness of joy at thy right hand there are pleasures for ever more.
But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.
What is Private Prayer Time? And what should it look like?
It is time to COMMUNE with GREATNESS! You’ve entered the PRESENCE of a KING – The King of Kings. Think of all the great leaders in the world at the moment – President Trump, Theresa May or even Queen Elizabeth.
If any of these great world leaders should ask for a PRIVATE AUDIENCE with you – an exclusive one on one – what would you do? How would you REACT, how would you prepare? How would you feel?
I’m sure you would be full of ECXITMENT, JOY and a bit intimidated – full of RESPECT and REVERENCE! I’m sure in meeting them – you will relay your any concern and seek their help and support – because they have POWER and WEILD influence – all over the world.
Similarly, when we enter God’s presence for private and intimate prayer – We have stepped into the THRONE ROOM of THE KING! There is no higher AUTHORITY – in the universe!
We should be exited, expectant, grateful and we should be ASSURED that any requests – that are according to the will of God – He has the POWER and INFLUENCE to answer them – all of them.
In prayer, we should have an attitude of EXPECTANCY!
In His presence, there is FULLNESS of JOY – just being in His Great and Holy Presence – is an absolute PRIVILDEGE! Remember, one on one with a world leader? But this is one on one with GOD!
In prayer, we should have an attitude of RESPECT and REVERENCE!
In Private prayer times we should PROSTRATE – Bow Down or Lie Down – Honoring the Almighty God!
Remember, because of JESUS we can ENTER IN – Enter in the Holy of Holies and Commune with the King.
And so, dear brothers and sisters we can Bodly enter Heaven’s most Holy place because of the blood of JESUS.
Private Prayer Time – Is time to TRULY WORSHIP and TRULY THANK the Almighty God and then bring our petitions before Him – We should focus most of TIME on Him – Exalting, Extoling and Magnifying the ALMIGHTY – then we should bring our NEEDS/CONCERNS to Him.
Remember – God Almighty God ALREADY KNOWS – He is OMNSICIENT! All your needs and concerns – They are not news or brand-new news to Him!
95% of this kind of INITMATE prayer – should be Worship – Magnifying and Exalting – GOD!
We LIE DOWN, LIFT UP OUR HANDS – TRULY USHERING HIS PRECENCE IN – In this atmosphere – where His presence is PUNGENT/THICK and can be FELT – the answers to our problems, issues, needs and wants – will FLOW – they will come – even those we have never asked for will be REVEALED, GIVEN and GRANTED to us!
This time is NOT a casual time! It is not a COZY time! It is not a time to be MISSED!
You are meeting/communing/fellowshipping with GREATNESS ITSELF – the ALMIGHTY GOD!
It should be TAKEN SERIOULSY!
Remember, the meeting with the great world leaders – would you be LATE to meet with Queen Elizabeth or President Trump – would you be flippant – not serious – in their presence? No! Their security would not even let you – do this? How much more GOD?
IT IS SERIOUS – This does not mean that it is not wonderful and truly pleasant – I’m sure, just entering the palace of the queen – all you will see is a sight for the eyes and the senses. Taken it seriously – does not mean rigid, not intimate or not enjoyable – not GREATLY AMAZING! Again, in His presence is fullness of Joy – and EVERYTHING GOOD THING!
Private prayer time is NOT OPTIONAL for a BELIEVER – IT IS A CRUCIAL MUST!
It is a MUST!
Jesus put time aside to spend INITMATE time with the Father in Heaven – while on the earth – we must do so too. Like the instruction in Matthew 6:6 we should find somewhere PRIVATE, INITMATE – where we can usher in OUR BURNING BUSH – A place where we call Holy Ground – where we DAILY enter in the PRESENCE of the ALMIGHTY – to Replenish, Refuel and Really commune with the Lord! If we do this DILEGENTLY – bringing our needs to Him at the end of worship/prayer session – which He is already fully aware of – they will ALWAYS be answered – if they are according to His will – which is His WORD – The Scriptures!
What does your prayer time look like? Have you recently had an audience with the King?
The Almighty God is ALWAYS – Inviting you to an AUIDENCE – Some one on one time with Him?
He is bigger than any great world leader, famous singer or sports star – God WANTS time with you today!
Prepare –with Prayer Points, Be Excited, Be filled with Awe and Wonder – Expecting ANSWERS to your prayers because you’re in the presence of the one with ALL POWER!
Spend Time with God – TODAY!
God Bless You!
