Vital signs- Saturday, September 1st, 2022

“Now it came to pass, as He was praying in a certain place, when He ceased, that one of His disciples said to Him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples.””

‭‭Luke‬ ‭11:1‬ ‭NKJV‬‬un

"Teach Us to Pray”

None of us just wake up one day as a prayer warrior; we learn to pray. The disciples saw very clearly what was happening in the ministry of Jesus. They saw Him walking on water after He had spent the night in prayer. They noticed that when He prayed, the fishes and the loaves were multiplied and fed thousands. They heard what He said when He drove out a demon—that “this kind” only comes out when you fast and pray. If the disciples knew they needed to learn to pray, don’t you think we should learn too?

How was it that Christ had the confidence to say, “He who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do” (John 14:12)? He could say that because He taught the disciples to pray. When you learn to pray like Jesus prayed, and you learn to walk in the power of the anointing that gave Him the ability to move heaven and earth, when you learn how to live the life of “greater things that these shall you do,” you have the chance to turn the world upside down.

Enter into the power and the privilege you have when you are willing to learn to pray!

Lord Jesus Christ, I come before You, according to Your Word, and I ask You to teach me to pray as You taught Your first disciples. Make me a person of prayer so that I might receive Your power, and with Your power, I might change the world in Your name. Amen!
