The Scripture says in 1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing. By the Special Grace of God, I would love for every child of God interested in going to Heaven first of all/ interested in living a God filled life. . . which will in turn enable us to make the best out of life here on Earth, to pray and keep on praying and take Prayers seriously for we are in perilous times and the heart of mankind is desperately wicked especially today (if you doubt that. . . read the news and look around you).
we can talk all we want argue and show our knowledge of the Gospel over one another but without the power of Prayer we are going to be powerless Christians. Prayer changes things especially those things the meant devil meant for evil for us, God will turn around for our good through Prayers in Christ's name . We can talk a lot about Christ and everything we know about God but if you are not a Praying Christian you are not a powerful Christian and will end being "a cooked meal for satan and his demons". how is that possible? you may ask. . . well demonic oppression for one is a way to be in satans chains that means when you don't pray the devil can oppress you whenever he fill like it and you will be in bondage until the Lord is called upon to deliver.
Sometimes a lot of Christians say God doesn't answer my Prayers , I don't know why! and some say He answers them right away as as they call on Him . . . well my answer to those who say God doesn't answer them when they pray, is to make sure that their mind is right with God and to keep on Praying/trusting and having faith and one day the answer will surely come as long as they have not already limited God in their Prayers , remember; God is not mocked they that seek Him must do so in Spirit and in truth John 4:24 God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth." Gal 6:7 Do not be deceived, )God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, this he will also reap.For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life.
Also remember to have faith when Praying and to also trust that God will answer you in His own acceptable time, God is never late and He does answer Prayers especially the Prayers of the righteous .
Lastly I implore you to commit all aspects of your life no matter how terrible to God's capable hands and watch Him control your life for good and you not only feel light but also you will worry no more about things going wrong because He is able to do all things and very capable... remember He is the CREATOR OFTHE WHOLE UNIVERSE
