FUNDAMENTALS OF PRAYERS-3 'tools of Adoration, praise and thanksgiving'

Welcomeback. In part 2, we considered 'adoration' as part of prayers. In fact it's the first step we need to take for aneffectiveprayer session. Within Adoration, I touched onreverencingGod, thanking him andpraisinghim. Inthispart I want to look at the 'tools of adoration, praise and thanksgiving'
1. Our Heart Our heart must be right before we adore, praise or offerthanksgiving  toGod. You can't adore God with an unclean heart. An unclean heart is an unforgiving heart. Your heart, for the purpose of this article is your soul. Your soul needs to be ready and joyful to magnify the Lord. Luke 1:46.Ps42:2;Ps63:1 O God my God, early will I seek you, my soul thirsts for you, my flesh longs for you in a dry and thirsty land where there is no water. That state of heart and soul, is a ready-made for adoration, when you are in  state of total reverence to God. 
Once you capture and place your heart right, worship is easy. In Prov 23:15, Solomon states 'My son, if your h…

FUNDAMENTALS OF PRAYERS-2

Last time we looked into the general introduction to prayers. We found an acronym sifted out of Jesus guidelines to prayers. In this part I want to share my thoughts on the first letter in the acronym A
A=Adoration  What does it mean to adore someone. It is the act of paying honour , reverent homage and fervent and devoted love. With regards to adoring God, It goes on deeper. It goes beyond just appreciating him. It extends to honouring and acknowledging him as the Father, Abba father. 'Our father in heaven' 'Hallowed be your name' Mere saying that as an opening to any prayer, brings God's attention to bear on your prayers . You call Him Father, and you show immediately that you honour him. You acknowledge that the prayer is directed to no one but Him. This is not yet the stage of thanksgiving. It is the stage of devotion. To adore him for what He is, not what He has done for you...not yet.
What has He done as a Creator. You can spend time on the goodness of what H…

THE FUNDAMENTALS OF PRAYER

Prayer has been described as communication with the Lord. A conversation with God. It gives us an opportunity to commune with our Creator. He desires to speak and listen to us. Just as He desired it for man(Adam) in the garden of Eden before the fall. Gen 2:8 'in the cool of the morning'
Despite the simplicity of this mutual expressions. It seems that over the years, the mode and style of prayers have become cumbersome or at times beleaguered. There have been 'prayer merchants and warriors' and many people have either been discouraged or belaboured with the 'obligations' associated with prayers, that fewer people feel dissatisfied with their prayer life. The hours to pray, how long, how much, the level of your voice, the things you pray for etc have made a simple communication with God, a 'headache'.
The above is not unusual. In Jesus' days, there were all sorts of prayers and expressions. For example The Pharisees and Sadducees show off-
MT 6:5“And wh…
