- Prayer Secret #1 – Your Personal Relationship With God
The Lord gave us prayer as a means of communicating with Him, a way of growing closer to Him. Unlike a dated, stagnant ritual of speaking words to the air, prayer is a conversation in which we speak to God and He responds. This conversation strengthens us, helps focus us, and brings us into a greater fellowship with our Maker. Just as it is with our closest friends and family members, the more we speak to God the more we come to know His character.
Prayer is a key factor in our relationship with God. Our God is living and active in the lives of His creation every day. He desires that we be children who not only know our Father, but partner with Him in the work of the Kingdom to bring His good plans about in our lives and the lives of those around us. Times of reflection help produce gratitude in our hearts in the moment and can strengthen us in more difficult times of trials and tribulation.
When we make a record of how the Lord has prevailed in our times of sickness, need, or fear, we are cataloging His work and the testimony of His prevailing power in our lives. We are able to point to the One who is Faithful and True and help them draw closer to God on their own path toward greater intimacy. For a quick teaching on growing in intimacy with our Heavenly Father, watch this video from Mike Bickle.
She enjoys blending her passion for prayer, worship, and journalism as she labors with the Lord to see His goodness revealed to families, government leaders, and immigrants from non-Christian nations. We can't produce revival in our own strength, but God promises to be strong for us—if we'll seek Him wholeheartedly.
No one "enjoys" God's discipline, but if we'll stay focused on Him, it will bear good fruit in our lives.
The truth we need to remember is that Almighty God, who made heaven and earth, wants to be in relationship with us and wants us to know Him the way He knows us. Share Facebook Twitter Pinterest. Tell us what you think.

And you will learn more about what prayer is and what prayer is not. The author adds wisdom from other revered authors to his own to break down each part of the prayer and why Jesus included it. I recommend this book to Christians at any stage of their life journey, as it is a great spiritual boost to your prayer life. Oct 13, Stan rated it liked it. I read this short book about 20 years ago. I returned to it last night.
The title was a little deceptive, or so I felt 20 years ago. I'm not convinced I was wrong after all these years. The book does not really focus on the Lord's Prayer, though it does include that. It is more an examination of all of Jesus' prayers, except maybe John Hanegraaff offers an acronym for a model of prayer. This is the well-known Adoration - Confession - Thanksgiving - Supplication approach wit I read this short book about 20 years ago.
