There are also petitions for family and friends that we can set before the Lord. The prayers that get answered the most effective, are the ones that coincide with the perfect will of the Lord. The will of the Lord is all though the Bible, if you look for it. One example is turning people who have falling in to sin to come back to righteousness. This perfect will righteousness of God begins with you as a Christian and your house. Are you doing righteousness to yourself and to those that are in your own home? Are you doing your best to be at peace with all living in your home? Are you loving them? Are you loving yourself enough to forgive yourself first, for your sins of the past? Do you forgive them of your home of there sin? To be clear I do not say you should stay in a dangers home, but only that you forgive a God forgives.
This is where the work of God begins, is in our homes. It begins first to your own body which God has given to you. This body is also called our temple of the Holy Spirit. This Holy Spirit from God is the third part of three parts of God, which together is all called the trinity. There is more to be said on that, but for now I only want to point out the part of the name Holy, in the Holy Spirit. We are called to be a holy temple for the Holy Spirit to dwell in us. He comes to teach us, and to give us peace, power, and etc. We need to be holy, without wilful sin in our life, so the good gifts and powerful moving of God can flow through us, such as the miracle to heal the sick and raise the dead. So we pray this will of the Father, to be holy and without sin in His eyes. If there is sin, do yourself a great favour and turn away from it quickly and ask that the holy blood of Jesus wash that sin away.
People ask me about fasting and prayer for new believers. I do not discourage fasting, but like Jesus said to those who asked Him about fasting, there is a time for fasting and while Jesus was teaching His disciples, it was not time for them to fast. So what I say is, fast from sin first that lasts forever…now that is harder to do than fasting from food. Fasting from food has its place and needs to be learned in its season.
As we learn to fast from sin, we grow in love, faith and hope. This faith and hope, this hope is to see good things in our life begin to appear, and bear good fruit. What is this fruit we seek? This fruit looks, more loving, more patient, friendlier, kinder than we once where. This fruit will also bear witness that this growing in love towards God by doing His will of righteousness, and being holy. Growing in Holiness is vary pleasing to him. This fruit is then turned into wine of great joy, just like good wine brings great joy and gladness. Our hope is to become a shining light the can be boldly set on a hill for those around us to see.
So asking the Father in our prayers to help us stay out of sin, is one of the first steps of prayer. This kind of prayer is found in the Lord’s prayer. The Lord’s prayer is jammed full of helpful guidelines for us to pray by. You can read the Lords prayer and how to pray like we should that leads up to the Lords prayer that starts in. Matthew 6.
