Jesus' Words about Prayer
when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think
that they will be heard for their many words
all things, whatever you ask in prayer, believing, you will
two or three are gathered in My name, there am I in the midst of
and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed
is willing, but the flesh is weak.
And whenever you stand praying, if you
have anything against anyone, forgive him, that your Father in heaven may also
forgive you your trespasses

This web site was created to glorify God through the words of His Son, Jesus Christ. It is our prayer that as you read Jesus' words you would be spiritually enlightened, enriched, and encouraged. Additionally, we have included biblical and historical information about Jesus' early life and His ministry on earth.
Scripture records “But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed.”- Luke 5:16. This verse affirms four very important spiritual truths about prayer. First, Luke is letting us know that Jesus had a pattern of praying often. Second, Jesus was clearly demonstrating the importance of prayer in our lives. Third, Jesus showed that in His human manifestation He absolutely needed to access the divine power of God through prayer to carry out His mission and ministry. The fourth is that prayer with faith in God, releases His supernatural power that is insurmountable by any and all forces at work in the world. As followers of Jesus Christ we cannot exist as effective witnesses, and experience the fullness of God's supernatural power in our lives without prayer. Jesus' teaching on prayer and the words of apostles, prophets, and religious men and women in the bible all attest to the importance of praying to God for repentance, protection, revelation, healing, anointing and provision of all our needs. But regardless of the purpose, prayer without faith in God's supernatural power is ineffective and just a ritual.
Here are some ways to pray for the release of God’s supernatural power:
WITH PRAISE AND PURPOSE
WITH FAITH IN GOD’S POWER
IN JESUS’ NAME
ABOUT EVERYTHING WITH THANKSGIVING
WITH TRUST IN GOD’S ANSWERS
