"The Prayer Room"!
You are about to embark on one of the most fruitful journeys of your existence. It is a journey to a distant, however near place. The Heart of God is that place, and the launching pad is your own heart. We will embark upon developing a consistent dialogue between your heart and The Heart of God. We will be feeding our spirits the Word of God in order to develop an understanding of how the dialogue develops. Let us review some pretty basic information for your success in this endeavor. You must remember these things:
1. "God is a Spirit, (A Spiritual Being) and them that worship Him must worship Him in
spirit and in Truth".
2. Without faith it is impossible to please God, for them that believe that HE IS, must
first know that HE IS a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.” (Hebrews 11:6)
3. “Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God. And how can one hear
without a preacher, and how can he/she preach unless they be sent."
4. “Have faith in God. For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, 'Be
removed and be cast into the sea,' and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that
those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. "'Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and
you will have them. (Mark 11:22b-24)
5. "And whenever you stand praying, if you have anything against anyone, forgive
him and let it drop (leave it, let it go), in order that your Father Who is in heaven may
also forgive you your [own] failings and shortcomings and let them drop." (Mark
6. "Also when you pray, you must not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray
standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen
7. "Also [Jesus] told them a parable to the effect that they ought always to
pray and not to turn coward (faint, lose heart, and give up)." (Luke 18:1)
8. "Be unceasing in prayer [praying perseveringly]; (1 Thessalonians 5:17)
9. " I desire therefore that men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath
or doubting." (Timothy 2:8)
10. "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me; But certainly God has
heard me; He has given heed to the voice of my prayer. Blessed be God, Who has
not rejected my prayer nor removed His mercy and loving-kindness from being [as it
always is] with me." (Psalms 66:18)

GODLY BELIEF DECLARATIONS
Declare for a period of thirty days!
(Romans 7:4) I have undergone death as to the Law through the crucified body of Christ, so that now I may belong to Another, to Him Who has raised me from the dead in order that I may bear fruit for God.
Godly belief: I choose to believe that God cares for me. (1Peter 5:7) Casting the whole of my cares and all my anxieties, all my worries, all my concerns, once and for all on Him, for He cares for me affectionately and cares about me watchfully.
(1John 4:16) INSERT YOUR NAME knows and understands, recognizes is conscious of, by observation and by experience and belief (adhere to) and put faith in and rely on the love God cherishes for me. God is love, and He who dwells and continues in love dwells and continues in Him.
(Malachi 4:2) But unto me, INSERT YOUR NAME who revere and worshipfully fear Your name Father God, shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings and His beams, and I shall go forth and gambol (be bursting with energy), like calves (frisky and frolicking), released from the stall and leaping for joy.
(Colossians 1:10 & 2 Timothy 2:11) That I may walk, live and conduct myself in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to Him and desiring to please Him in all things, bearing fruit in every good work and steadily growing and increasing in and by the knowledge of God, with fuller deeper, and clearer insight acquaintances and recognition. The saying is sure and worthy of confidence: If we have died with Him, we shall also live with Him.
(1Peter 5:10) And after I have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who imparts all blessing and favor, who has called me to His own eternal glory in Christ Jesus, will Himself complete and make me what I ought to be; establish and ground me securely, and strengthen and settle me.
(Psalm 50:3) Father, You said, he/she who brings an offering of praise and thanksgiving honors and glorifies You; and he/she who orders his/her way aright, who prepares the way that You may show him/her, to him/her You will demonstrate the salvation of God.
(2 Peter 1:3, 4) For God’s divine power has bestowed upon me all things that are requisite and suited to life and godliness, through the full personal knowledge of Him Who called me by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). By means of these He has bestowed on me His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them I may escape by flight from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed) and become a sharer and partaker of Your divine nature.
(Romans 6:11) I consider myself also dead to sin and my relation to it broken, but alive to God living in unbroken fellowship with Him in Christ Jesus.
(1Peter 4:1-2) So since Christ suffered in the flesh for me, I shall arm myself with the same thought and purpose (patiently to suffer) rather than fail to please God. For whoever has suffered in the flesh (having the mind of Christ) has ceased from sin (sin has stopped pleasing him/herself), and the world, and pleases God. I no longer spend the rest of my natural life living by my human appetites and desires, but I live for what God wills.
(Jude 1:2) Father may Your mercy,(soul) peace and love be multiplied to me.
FOR WOMEN: (Song 7:1, 2, 4) Thank You Father that companions began noticing and commenting on the attractiveness of my person (the apotheosis--the perfect embodiment of Christ Jesus, who is the inner beauty of my soul), and say, “how beautiful are your feet in sandals O queenly maiden! Your rounded limbs are liked jeweled chains, the work of a master hand. My body is like a round goblet in which no mixed wine is wanting. My abdomen is like a heap of wheat set about with lilies. My neck is like a tower of ivory, and my eyes like the pools of Heshbon. My nose is like the tower of Lebanon which looks toward Damascus.
(Proverbs 8:33) I will hear instruction and be wise, and will not refuse or neglect it.
(1Peter 4:8) Above all things I will have intense and unfailing love one for another, for love covers a multitude of sins, forgives and disregards the offenses of others. SO FATHER CONTINUALLY OVERFLOOD MY HEART WITH YOUR PERFECT LOVE IN JESUS NAME!
(1Peter 2:13) I shall be submissive to every human institution and authority for the sake of the LORD, whether it be the emperor as supreme, or to governors, as to those who are sent by Him for the punishment of evil-doers and for the praise of those who are good.
DECLARATION: Father I choose to surrender my emotions to You, and I also choose to release those who have wounded and hurt me. In Jesus Name!
THE INNER SANCTUM OF PRAYER
Communication—as old as the Ancient of Days; for it was GOD Himself who saw a reflection of Himself as He hovered over the face of the deep and knew that everything was contained in Himself. As He looked into the deep darkness of nothingness, He saw not a void, but the fulfillment of all things—Himself—LIGHT! He then SPOKE out of that experience and said, that’s good. We spell it “good,” but I can just imagine that He really said, “that’s GOD!”
And so what is prayer, anyway? How do we know when we have prayed adequately or have been heard by God? Does prayer always mean that something is said, or are there many forms and kinds of prayer? Well, let’s define the word prayer. To adequately define prayer, we will have to start with the object of prayer, or the One to whom prayer is directed.
Prayer is directed to God, and received from Him as an extension of His Spirit in directing the hearts and minds of His people. When Adam and Eve disobeyed in the Garden of Eden, God’s Spirit must have cried out in agony as He called for Adam. GOD, THE GREAT COMMUNICATOR AND EVERLASTING FATHER cries out to us by His Spirit. Thus, we must listen for His voice, heed His instructions, and complete the communication--prayer. The Bible says that God sits upon the circle of the earth; so prayer is a constant communications. In 1 Thessalonians 5:17, we are counselled to “…pray without ceasing,” in other words, be always in communion (communication) with The Spirit of God! All we need to do is listen, and heed the call of His Spirit.
As we explore the inner sanctum of prayer, we must have a listening ear to hear the cry of the Father to a perverse and crooked generation. How does God pray, and does He pray? If we do not realize the inner chamber of the vehicle we call prayer, we have totally missed the real tenets of prayer—man and God, Creator and creature.
This study is a work of the Holy Spirit that is come alongside to help in our struggle to adequately release the cries and exhortations of our hearts in what is commonly referred to as prayer. Prayer is the God-guided, Son-borne, Spirit-unctioned privilege of every human being on the face of this earth. A DIVINE CRY OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD! “PRAYER—A CRY OF THE HEART!”
LORD Christ Jesus, you have given us the authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and you have given us physical and mental strength and ability over all the power of the enemy, and we declare that nothing shall by any means harm us.
We bind our hearts together in love and thanksgiving that we are strong in You and in the power of Your Might! We pray this prayer in the Almighty name and Spirit of El Shaddai, Yeshua, Jesus, Who has already defeated every one of our enemies—In His Name. Hallelujah, Hallelujah, Amen—SO BE IT!!!!!!!
