Amen God Hears You

God Moves to 7 Models of Praying From the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13)

The Small Big Word, Amen

The small word Amen is a big part of prayer. Prayer is nearly a vow or promise to God that what we pray is the truth on our hearts. God listens to our prayers. We trust in Him, and He hears everything we say. To make prayer into an empty vanity is something people do. Jesus teaches us to pray with the model prayer and promises God will listen to your Amen!

“After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”

Matthew 6:9-13 (KJV)

The Throne God Listens From

With all that we pray for, we know God’s throne of mercy and grace is available through our perfect High Priest (Hebrews 4). Whatever spiritual question we make to God is always answered in the affirmative. Pray for a stronger faith and pursue it. Ask for an enhanced character of kindness and work to mold yourself in His image. No matter what the spiritual question is. If you have read about the gift of righteous living in the Bible, a blessing promised by those who live a life directed by God and His Word is guaranteed.

The Physical Necessities God Wants to Bless

Physical blessings are temporary, but God hears when we ask for them. God’s will is that we have the necessities of life but that does not say we will not have to skip a meal(s). Since treasuring items that rust and moth destroy is pointless, it does not do to ask God for perishables.

He says to pray for physical necessities but not to the point of overindulgence. Of the blessings received, Abraham gave 10% to a priest of God named Melchizedek in the Old Testament.

God Wants To Empower Your Giving

Although tithing is not a new covenant concept, but is a denominational theology, 2 Corinthians 9 does teach us to give a part of our income to the cause of Christ. With that blessing is the promise that we will never run out of seed to sow for the kingdom.

Motive for The Means

We do not give to receive more, and we are not required to give a designated 10%. But what if every member of your congregation gave 10% to the Lord? The church would have a fat treasury blessed by Father God. God hears when we are motivated to do services for Christ. Thus, divine mercy is discovered when we pray for our daily bread.

God Wants to Heal You

We may pray for healing as a part of requests to God. He listens to us. We should be at peace knowing that what is most important to God is to offer forgiveness when we are ill, yes even terminal illness.

“Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he has committed sins, it shall be forgiven him.”

James 5:14-15 (ASV)

The Emphasis of The Prayer

Elders occupy a special place in the Lord’s church, but I am not going to talk about that. The emphasis is on the prayer of faith, saving him that is sick. God does not will that Satan torture us with disease. Nonetheless, all people are appointed to die and then be judged (Hebrews 9:27). Thus, God is not mere interested in healing physical illness. When Jesus healed people during his earthly journey, he did so to give a sign of proof what he preached about the kingdom was the truth. God’s chief concern is sin-sickness. Hence, the phrase, “if has committed sins it shall be forgiven him.” God is listening.

The Lord’s Model Prayer

The Lord’s model prayer is presented as a beginner’s prayer. Jesus teaches his disciples how to pray saying, “In this manner pray….” He then proceeds to teach them to exalt and glorify Father God first, before making any kind of request or supplication.

We pray for the kingdom church and her glory lasting continuously through the final judgment day of the Lord. The sovereign will of God is recognized and appreciated in our prayers petitioning the one Living God. He has all authority in Heaven. We pray for the universal submissiveness of the earth, the realm of men and women.

Going on in our prayers we ask the Creator of the cosmos to give us our necessities, or our daily bread. Learning to increase in forgive one another, we plead with the LORD to forgive us our debts. We are indebted beyond what we can pay, so we must reply upon the grace of Jesus Christ to offer up to God what we ourselves can never pay.

Gratitude For The Blood

Praise God we have been redeemed by the blood of the Lamb. May Father God keep our way and lead us not into places where we could be seduced by evil or be tempted into falling short of glorifying God. The kingdom of heaven on earth belongs to Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 

God Listens

Humbly we pray our Amen. We know the LORD of life listens. You can have confidence when you petition God in prayer. He listens. Father God hears every word you mumble when your humble. We pray through Jesus Christ because He is our great High Priest of souls (Hebrews 7). Even the Holy Spirit speaks on our behalf in Heaven when we are speechless to form the words of our needs and pains.

“…He who is searching the hearts hath known what is the mind of the Spirit, because according to God he doth intercede for saints.” Romans 8:27 (YLT)

God knows what you need before you ask Him. He still wants you to ask because by asking we show our dependence on Him. Amen. God listens to you.

The God To Whom You Pray

“Our Father who art in heaven….”

(Matthew 6:9)

Praying to The Living God.

The God to whom we direct our prayers is not a home-made god. People have home-made gods. Their gods are perfect in their eyes because they never condemn but always praise their prideful actions. No such thing as ethics and morality is defined by home-made gods except that which the creative person says is right or wrong. The individual dictates to his god what defines it. The living God of the Bible is not popular because He is the opposite of the home-made images.

Who The Living God Is

The living God to whom we pray is the God of the global flood, the Creator who authorized the death plague on the first-born Egyptians. He is also the God who wrote the ten commandments with His finger, But Moses had to rewrite them, after the law-giving prophet discovered the people worshiping a home-made golden calf.

Created In His Image

The God to whom we are learning to pray created you in His own image. Male and female. He is the God who sent His special Son to suffer a human life, to die an undeserved human death at the murderous hands of his own peculiar people. Still, God. The God to whom we pray is the God of all comfort and mercy – and He is serious about granting peace that surpasses our limited understanding.

Father God’s Name

Father God’s Name is to be hallowed. Hallowed means to be consecrated or set apart for worship or for religious purpose. Perhaps, holy comes closer to explaining this word. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are united as the One Eternal God, whom alone is worthy of our prayers and praise. No created thing or animal is worthy of our adoration and praise. No, I say again, NO mortal is worthy of being called Reverend. The Bible reserves that title for God – God alone.

“He sent redemption unto his people: he hath commanded his covenant for ever: holy and reverend is his name.”

Psalm 111:9 (KJV)

God, and none other, is Reverend. He alone is Awesomely feared and respected with a godly awe.

Directing Prayer to the Father

Prayer is to be directed to the Father through the Son. God sent His Son, whom He named Jesus. Jesus in Aramaic means Jehovah saves. This majestic King of souls is the greatest high-priest, superior in every fashion man could ever come with. No clergy laity system is in the Bible. No priesthood except the royal priesthood of all fellow believers, according to 1 Peter 2:9. Nobody is worthy of a religious title. We are all brothers and sisters equal at the foot of the cross and baptized into an equal share of grace (Galatians 3:27-28). This is all to say, we may go to God’s throne of mercy and grace because of what Jesus has done on our behalf. Prayer is to be directed to the living God through the resurrected, living Son.

“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. 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. Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.”

Hebrews 4:14-16 (KJV)

Three important points you need to walk away with from this lesson.

1. The Living God is listening to you: Push aside all that worldliness of the home-made god and train your spirit to look up to focus on the real personal God who can actually change your life. The whole reason prayer hasn’t worked for people might be they have been praying to the wrong god. If all your trust is in a god sewn out of your own imagination, it has no real ability to affect change in your life. The self-help people say the power to change is within you. Wrong! The real dynamo is with the mercy, comfort and grace of the All-Reverend God who has sovereign power of providence at His disposal.

2. Our Living God understands you: Since He created you in His image don’t you think He has the patent? There’s that old cliche “I know I’m somebody because God doesn’t make junk.” God loves you the way you are. And if any changing is to be in the making, it will be Him molding you into the image of Christ’s righteousness. Righteous means right-living.

3. The Living God cares about you: He knows your pain. Your guilt is not hidden from him. But neither is your acts of faith and love. He knows your hopes and aspirations. God knows you need bread to feed your family and gas for your car. Rather than worrying when our next paycheck will come, we place trust in the caring Father who is our personal God.

This series presents the Lord’s model prayer He teaches to His disciples as a formal method of praying. But God is a personal God. You don’t have to go to a confessional booth to speak to Him. Sitting in the assembly on Sunday is not the exclusive place you may pray to the Divine. You can pray anywhere at anytime.This series presents the Lord’s model prayer He teaches to His disciples as a formal method of praying. But God is a personal God.
