Morning Devotion: Questions and Answers

Question: Should a Christian pray? Answer: Yes.

Acts 2:42  And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.

The believers in Acts 2 were faithful in the Apostles doctrine (that is the word of God) and in PRAYERS. Both bible study and prayer are vital in the Christian life. Sadly, these are often neglected.

When you begin to read the word of God, start with a prayer such as: Psalms 119:18  “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.”

As you read continue in prayer and when you are finished pray. Prayer is you talking to God. Reading the bible is God talking to you. Both are necessities.

Prayer is to God the father Matthew 6:9 and closed in Jesus’ name, John 14:14.

Jesus said: John 16:24  Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

Prayer is a privilege of the believer to the Father because of the Son. When the believer prays, he prays entering into the throne room of God.

Hebrews 4:14  Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession. 15  For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. 16  Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

We, as believers have access to the throne of grace because of Jesus. Do you have access to the throne of grace? Are you a born-again believer in Christ Jesus?

My unsaved friend, would you take advantage of the wonderful grace of God and be saved? Would you through Jesus Christ, enjoy the wonderful privilege, and enter into His presence with your petitions?

My saved, born-again friend, would you enter into that throne of grace which is yours to enjoy? God desires to hear from you.

David, God’s child, said in Psalms 55:17  “Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.”

The choice is still yours,
