Here are eight reasons why we should pray
1. God's Invitation: Come boldly before ........
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unreachable things you do not know. Jeremiah 33:3
Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find. Matthew 7:7
2. Jesus Blood Sacirifice: Hebrews:10:19-22
Having therefore, bretheren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus.
By a new and living way, which He hath concecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, His flesh.
And having an high priest over the house of God;
Let us Draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscious, and hour bodies washed with pure water.
3. Jesus Intercession: Hebrew 9:24
"For Christ did not enter into the holy places made with hands, which are the figures of the true; but into heaven itself, now to appear in the presence of God for us.
4. God's Promises: 2 Corintians 1: 20-22
For all the promises of God in him are a yea, and in Him Amen, unto the glory of God by us.
Now He which stablished us with you in Christ, and hath annointed us, is God.
Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the spirit in our hearts.
5. God's Oath and Covenant: Hebrew 6:17-19 and Heb 8:10
Wherein God, willing more abundantly to shew unto the heirs of promise the immutability of His counsel, confirmed it by an oath.
That by two immutable things, in which it was imposible for God to lie, we might have a strong consolation, who have fled for refuge to lay hold upon the hope set before us.
Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast, and which entereth into that within the veil;
For this the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days. saith the Lord; I will put my laws into their mind, and write them in their hearts: and I will be to them a God, and they shall be to me a people. Hebrews 8:10
6. God's Character: Numbers 23:19
God is not a man that He should lie, neither the son of a man, that He should repent: hath He said, and shall He not do it? Or hath He spoken, and He not make it?
7. Our Priest Role: Revelation 1:6
And hath man made us kings and priests unto god and His fathers; to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.
8. The name of Jesus: John 14: 13,14
And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that I will do, that He the father may be glorified in the Son.
If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do.
Praying back the word
By praying back the word it gives us authority to ask and to claim -God in His providence does not permit us to know the end from the begining, but He gives us the light of His words to keep our minds stayed on Jesus.
His instruction " My son attend to my word, keep them before thine eyes ...... health and flesh ".
Because God is not a man that He cannot lie. What He says He means and what He means He does. For He honors His word above His name
I will worship toward Thy Holy temple, and praise Thy name for Thy lovingkindness and for Thy truth: for Thou hast magnified Thy word above all Thy name.
