Prayer is A Key to Recovery
God was there when David faced wild animals as a shepherd boy. He was there when a youthful David stood in Goliath’s massive shadow. He was there when David hid from Saul in the cave. God was there as David began leading his band of soldiers away from the prisons of distress, debt and discontentment. David had built a life-long relationship of prayer.
As with David, the Lord’s will is to bring increase to you. He wants to bless, heal, and deliver. For that to happen, but you must seek Him first. Here are simple keys to prayer that will help you stay focused on God’s will for total recovery in your life:
- The first key is to make sure your heart is praying. You do that by letting prayer flow from your innermost being. Let prayer be birthed within you before you speak it.
- The second key is found in Ecclesiastes 5:2: “Be not rash with thy mouth, and let not thine heart be hasty to utter any thing before God: for God is in heaven, and thou upon earth: therefore let thy words be few.” In other words, do not be repetitious in prayer. Be specific with God when you pray and tell Him exactly what you need.
- The third key is to hide yourself in God and separate yourself from evil. Proverbs 27:12 says, “A prudent man foreseeth the evil, and hideth himself; but the simple pass on, and are punished.” Prayer hides you in God’s presence and disconnects you from the influence of this world.
When you pray, you are hid in Christ. No enemy can attack you. Prayer makes your life a succession of miracles. When you pray, you begin to inhale the atmosphere of Heaven, and prayer itself becomes the breathing in of the Holy Ghost. Every time you pray, you exhale the world, and you inhale Heaven. Prayer connects you with Heaven and God’s righteousness.
