John 14:23-24 Jesus answered and said unto him, If A Man Love Me, He Will Keep My Words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him. 24 He That Loveth Me Not Keepeth Not My Sayings: and the word which ye hear is not mine, but the Father’s which sent me.
Heb 4:14-15 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. (Confession) 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.
Heb 3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our Profession, (Confession) Christ Jesus; (The Son Of Man)
Heb 10:11-13 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But This Man, (Jesus) after he had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, Sat Down On The Right Hand Of God; 13 From henceforth Expecting Till His Enemies Be Made His Footstool.
1 Cor 15:25 For He (Jesus) Must Reign, (As Our High Priest, Heb 10:12-13) Till He (The Father) hath put all Enemies (Fallen Angels) under his Feet. (The Church)
Psa 110:1 The Lord (God The Father) said unto My Lord, (God The Son) Sit thou at my right hand, Until I Make (By The Holy Spirit) Thine Enemies (Satan & Fallen Angels) Thy Footstool. (Under The Feet Of The Church)
John 16:23 And In That Day (After Calvary When The Spirit Of Truth Comes, When Jesus Is Seated As High Priest) Ye Shall Ask Me (Jesus) Nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, whatsoever ye shall Ask The Father In My Name, (Rev 19:13 His Name Is Called The Word) He Will Give It You. (If It Agrees With The Word)
Luke 11:1-2 And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, Teach Us To Pray, as John also taught his disciples. 2 And he said unto them, When Ye Pray, Say, Our Father which art in heaven,
John 16:26-27 At That Day (After Calvary When The Spirit Of Truth Comes, When Jesus Is Seated As High Priest) ye shall ask in My Name: (Rev 19:13 His Name Is Called The Word) And I say Not Unto You, That I Will Pray The Father For You: (Jesus Is Not Praying To The Father For Us, We Pray To The Father For Ourselves) 27 For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.
* Under The Old Covenant Of The Law, prayer went first to the High Priest then the High Priest presented the prayer to God with a sacrifice.
* Under The New Covenant Of Grace, theirs no more sacrifice. Prayer goes first to The Father, Jesus the High Priest hears and agrees and repeats that prayer and Angels go into action.
* When we direct our prayers to Jesus, because he sets as High Priest. It puts us in rebellion to his word (John 16:23) and places us under the Curse Of The Law.
Eph 3:14 For this cause I Bow My Knees Unto The Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
Eph 1:16 Cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my Prayers; 17 That The God Of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him:
Rom 8:26-28 Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our Infirmities: (Weakness) for We Know Not What We Should Pray (In The Natural) for as we ought: but The Spirit Itself Maketh Intercession (Shows Us In The Word What To Pray) for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 27 And He (Jesus Our High Priest) that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because He (Jesus Our High Priest) Maketh Intercession (Agrees And Repeats Our Prayers) for the saints according to The Will Of God. (The Father) 28 And We Know That All Things (In The Context Of Prayer, The Spirit Revealing The Truth Of The Word That We Pray To The Father & Our High Priest Jesus Agrees And Repeats His Word & Angels Go Into Action) Work together for good to them that love God, to them who are The Called According To His Purpose. (Returning The Word To God The Father)
Prayer is not trying to talk God into doing something we want. Prayer is looking into the Written Word and by Revelation of The Spirit of Truth, coming to the knowledge and understanding of what Jesus accomplished at the Cross. What he has provided through the New Covenant Of Grace, then agreeing with that which has been revealed and returning that word of agreement to God The Father in prayer with Thanksgiving.
Phil 4:6 Be Careful For Nothing; (Don’t Worry) but in everything by Prayer (G4335 =Worship) and supplication with Thanksgiving (Paradigm Of Grace) Let Your Requests (That Gods Will Be Done With Thanksgiving) be made known unto God.(The Father)
Eph 5:20 Giving Thanks Always For All Things unto God and The Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ;
Col 3:15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and Be Ye Thankful.
Col 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, Giving Thanks to God and The Father by him.
Psalms 100:4 Enter into his gates with Thanksgiving, and into his courts with praise: Be Thankful unto him, and bless his name.
James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because Ye Ask Amiss, (Under The Mosaic Law/Curse) that ye may consume it Upon Your Lusts. (Based on what you need not what Jesus has provided through Grace as recorded in the Word)
1 John 5:14 And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, If We Ask (Desire) any thing according to His Will, (The Word) He Heareth Us:
John 15:7 If ye abide in me, and My Words Abide In You, Ye Shall Ask (Desire) What Ye Will, (According To The Word) and it shall be done unto you.
Jer 1:12 Then said the Lord unto me, For I Will Hasten (Watch For) My Word To Perform It. (Answered Prayer)
Isaiah 55:11 So shall My Word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it Shall Not Return Unto Me Void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in The Thing Whereto I Sent It.
“Law & Grace” The difference in The Promise (Law) and The Provision (Grace)
“Prayer Under the Old Covenant Of The Law (Promise) they ask for that which had not yet come.” ”Prayer focuses’ on you and what you need”
“Prayer Under the New Covenant Of Grace (Provision) we are Thankful for that which has come.” “Prayer focuses’ on The Father” and what he provided through the Cross by the sacrifice of Jesus”
Eph 1:3 Blessed be The God And Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who Hath Blessed Us With All Spiritual Blessings in heavenly places In Christ: (The Covenant Of Grace)
No Sin Consciousness No Illness Consciousness And No Need Consciousness.
“All Sin Forgiven” “All Diseases Healed” = Psalms 103:2-3 Bless The Lord, (With Thanksgiving) O my Soul, (Mind Will Emotions) and Forget Not All His Benefits: (Don’t Forget What Grace Has Provided) 3 Who Forgiveth All Thine Iniquities; (One Sacrifice For Sin Forever) who Healeth All Thy Diseases; (One Sacrifice For Sickness Forever)
“All Needs Met” = Phil 4:19 But my God Shall Supply All Your Need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Through The Covenant Of Grace)
“Angelic Protection In All My Ways” = Psalms 91:11 For He Shall Give His Angels Charge Over Thee, To Keep Thee In All Thy Ways.
“Pray The Answer In The Word Not The Problem”
Visualize The Need i.e. Problem, Speak The Answer i.e. The Word, Scripture.
Don’t Bring The Darkness Of The Problem Into The Presents Of God. Bring The Light Of His Word.
Psalms 119:105 Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, and a Light unto my path.
1 John 1:5 This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God Is Light, And In Him Is No Darkness At All.
2 Cor 6:14 (b) What Communion Hath Light With Darkness? (None)
2 Cor 10:5 Casting Down (Don’t Speak) Imaginations, (Thoughts) and Every High Thing (Problems) that exalteth itself against The Knowledge Of God, (Provision Of The Cross) and bringing into captivity every thought to the Obedience Of Christ; (Speaking In Agreement With Grace)
Eph 4:29 Let No Corrupt Communication Proceed Out Of Your Mouth, (Agreeing With Law) but That Which Is Good (Agreeing With Grace) to the use of edifying, that it may Minister Grace (Answered Prayer) unto the hearers.
Hab 1:13 Thou (God) art of purer eyes than to Behold (Regard, Respect, Receive, Agree With) evil, and Canst Not Look (Regard With Pleasure) On Iniquity: (Those Things Of The Law Of Sin & Death) (1 Cor 13:5 (b) Love Thinketh No Evil) =(1 John 4:16 (b) God Is Love.)
Heavenly Father, I acknowledge “The Covenant Of Grace” and what it provides. All my sins are forgiven, All my sickness is healed, All my needs are met. Angels are protecting me in All my ways. With Thanksgiving I receive All that The Covenant Of Grace Provides. Amen
Heb 4:16 Let us therefore Come (With Prayer, Words Of Thanksgiving) Boldly (With Full Knowledge Of The Character Of God, Without Fear, Condemnation, Guilt Or Shame) unto The Throne Of Grace, (The Mercy Seat)(The Presents Of God The Father & The Son By The Spirit of Grace) that we May Obtain Mercy, (For Ones Self With Thanksgiving) and Find Grace (Gods Covenant Of Provision) To Help (Be A Helper To Others) in time of need.
