We recommend that you prayerfully go through the Pursuing Intimacy With God I & II Bible studies, which will help you to pursue and obtain the fullest possible intimate fellowship and partnership with Jesus Christ. He wants to give you a full and meaningful and satisfying life, and you can only have this when you have an intimate and right love relationship with Jesus.

What Is Prayer ? (continued)

"NOW THIS IS ETERNAL LIFE: THAT THEY MAY KNOW YOU, THE ONLY TRUE GOD, AND JESUS CHRIST, WHOM YOU HAVE SENT.”      - JOHN 17:3

“... THAT YOU MAY KNOW AND BELIEVE ME, AND UNDERSTAND THAT I AM HE."      - ISAIAH 43:10

- also see EXODUS 33:11, 13-18 and PSALM 142:1-6

- See “To Know God” (page 3) - the Biblical words for “know God” mean much more than our English word, which sounds like it means to know about God. God wants you to know Him by seeing and experiencing Him in and around your life. When you see and experience God’s faithfulness in your life for example, you then know that God is faithful. This is a much better and more intimate and real knowledge of God than just knowing about Him.

■ GOOD COMMUNICATION REQUIRES 2 PEOPLE (GOD COMMUNICATES WITH US AND WE COMMUNICATE WITH HIM IN PRAYER)

A close and intimate relationship needs to be a 2-way relationship. Intimate communication needs to be 2-way also, or it is not good communication. Hearing God’s voice is by far the most important part of our prayer and fellowship time with Him. If you are not hearing God’s voice, you are missing out on getting to know Him more, you will miss His plans for you, and you will miss out on the full & abundant life that He wants you to have, which is only found in Him.


■ INTIMACY WITH GOD COMES AS YOU DESIRE & SEEK TO KNOW HIM, HIS WILL & PLANS, AND HIS WAYS

- Review “ARE YOU SEEKING GOD ?” (Page 4)
- The Greek words for Pray or Prayer mean: to want, to desire, to long for, to ask or beg; great poverty or lack or need; a seeking or asking of God ; to pray earnestly or fervently
- The Hebrew & Greek words for Seek mean: to seek the face of God, to desire, to examine or explore, to seek earnestly, to diligently search for, to crave, to investigate, to pursue

- “I WILL GIVE THEM A HEART TO KNOW ME.” — JEREMIAH 24:7

God needs to touch all of our hearts so that He is our first love and we will hungrily and fervently seek to know Him more and more

■ PRAYER/TIME WITH GOD IS VITAL TO BEING CLOSER TO GOD, “ONE” WITH GOD, AND TO GROWING MORE LIKE JESUS (SPIRITUAL GROWTH)

“Prayer is designed more to adjust you to God, than to adjust God to you & your desires.”

“ The time a Christian gives to prayer & fellowship with God is not meant for his/her carnal or natural life, but to nourish the life of Jesus in him/her.” — Oswald Chambers

- also read JOHN 17: 20-21 , EXODUS 34:28-35 , and ROMANS 8:28-29
