Jesus Prayed in, Matt.26:39 It says. And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, "O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt."
This verse reveals the stress and agony that Jesus was going through in the Garden of Gethsemane, just before he endured the most ultimate suffering. There will be times in our lives when everyone will go through a similar Garden of Gethsemane Experience.
There will be times of sorrow, distress, loneliness, pain and rejection. We will be over taken with feelings of despair and anxiousness, but we can come out comforted and renewed in hope. If we take our cares to the Lord Jesus and leave them with Him, and we will have total peace. Just as Jesus was willing to accept the will of His heavenly father, we must also accept God's will for us. Because God knows what is best for us. Just trust Him.
Prayer is key for us coming out more than conquers from our Garden of Gethsemane Experience, which looks all hopeless at times, into a renewed relationship with the Lord. Whatever you are going through, Jesus is right there with you, waiting for you to seek Him and accept His will. Our desire should be trust Jesus, and do the will of the Lord. It is when we accept the will of God that is when we obtain victory over our circumstance."
In Philippians 4:6,7
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
7 And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.
These 2 verses is telling us, don't worry about anything. This is a simple but bold command. See, if we worry it is an act of fear. And we must learn and become wise to the devils cunning attack on our faith. See, it goes like this. Fear activates evil and faith activates God. That is why Jesus said fear not. You and I can rest in peace knowing that God will see us through and He will take total care of the thing or things that is causing us to worry. This is how much God Loves us. Amen...
See, the peace of God is yours to enjoy, because you have received Jesus as your Saviour. And all you have to do is pray to God in Jesus Name, that He will take care of you and guide you through what ever it is that is causing you to be afraid. And all His riches will be added unto you. And you will not ever have to worry about anything. Because you know by faith that God will protect you forever.
In 1 John 5:14,15 we read.
14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us:
15 And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.
This is our confidence. That we can totally trust God to do what He said He would do for us.
And if we ask for anything in prayer that is according to His will. He will hear us and answer our prayers.
I have seen this happen before my very eyes. That some of my prayers was truly answered.
But we must know that what we are asking God for, in prayer, is the will of God. But what I have noticed over the years is that when some Christians pray. They have doubt in their minds that the prayer will be answered.
Doubting that, the prayer you just prayed will not be answered, has caused that prayer to be doomed for failure. Because it was all wasted words. Because you doubted. Faith in God hearing our prayers, is what gets our prayers answered, if our prayer are according to the will of God. Jesus said, that their is no room for a lukewarm belief. You either believe or you don't. There is no middle ground when it comes to believing in God. So, just pray to God to take care of what ever is that is bothering you. And go on and enjoy you day, knowing by faith that God will take care of your problem, His way. Don't even worry about it and watch what happens.
So, the message here is, don't pray for things in a selfish way. But pray for things that is according to the will of God. And He will hear your prayers and bless you beyond your wildest dreams.
Have a great day. And may God richly bless you and your family in Jesus name, Amen.
Jesus Loves You.
