Prayer, in its most important form, is communion with God, fellowship with Jesus in a personal one-on-one relationship. Like Moses we want to meet with God face-to-face; like Enoch we want to walk as closely with God as possible. Our intimate relationship with God is first priority.
We want to abide in Christ continually and seek Him with all our hearts. We want to first minister to the Lord and allow Him to put His heart in us.
It is only in abiding in Jesus that we can bear good fruit that lasts, and this includes bearing fruit in regard to prayer and intercession. It is only in knowing Him intimately that we can truly pray His will and what is on His heart.
He hears our prayers and lives to bring Heaven to earth through us. When we pray, praying His Word and His will, we know that our prayers will not return void or unanswered (Isaiah 55:11).
God’s Word contains prayers from His will and plan, and His Spirit also leads us to pray what is on the heart of our Great Intercessor, Jesus.
The more we encounter God, the more we fall in love with Him and become alive in Him. Our hearts grow in union with His heart and we begin to say the things He is saying, pray the things He is praying, and do the things He is doing.
There is nothing more satisfying for the human heart than meeting with our Creator, the Lover of our souls. We hope that you too will fix your eyes on Jesus, giving yourself to Him in an ever growing, intimate relationship.
