Jesus Had Powerful Prayer & A Victorious Life

“Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but your will be done.” – Luke 22:42
“During the days of Jesus life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission.” – Hebrews 5:7

The Keys to Powerful Prayer & A Victorious Life
Here are the keys to being able to pray to God and always see Him answer. The keys to a powerful prayer life. And a fruitful and victorious abundant life that God wants you to have:
1st of The Keys to Powerful Prayer & A Victorious – Close Fellowship With God (Jesus is Your First Love)
1 Corinthians 1:9 “God is faithful, through whom you were called into fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
God desires you to have close fellowship with Him. When you do not spend any time with God and are not desiring this close fellowship with Him, then your prayers will not be as God wants them to. And you will not see powerful results to your prayers.
Jesus needs to be your First Love and Treasure and Passion. Fellowship with Him needs to be a high priority in your life. You need to seek God Himself, and not just things and answers from God.
Matthew 6:33 “But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
Matthew 22:37-38 “And He said to him, “‘ You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind .’ 38 This is the great and foremost commandment.”
1 John 3:21-22 ” Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; 22 and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight.”
Here are some more verses to read:
- James 5:16b
- Proverbs 21:21
- 2 Corinthians 5:9, 14
- John 14, 15
- Revelation 2:1-4
2nd of The Keys to Powerful Prayer & A Victorious Life – You Need to Continually Pray & Depend On God
Matthew 7:7-8 “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”
James 4:2b “You do not have because you do not ask.”
The original word used in Matthew 7:7 for “ask” means to “keep on asking” or “continually ask”. God wants you to humbly depend on Him and keep on asking Him for what you need. And keep on asking until you receive His answer.
Be Humble And Be Totally Dependent on God
Some people have a problem with humbling themselves and having to ask God for things. Or to help them with a problem or a difficult situation. God wants us to humble ourselves and to humbly depend on Him, so that we can then see and experience His faithfulness and His goodness when He answers our prayers.
1 Peter 5:6 – “Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time.”
Matthew 23:12 – “Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.”
Here are some other verses to read:
- Jeremiah 33:3
- Acts 1:14
- Acts 2:42-47
