The success of our prayers is not in the multitudes of words that we pray, but it is in the heart from which we pray. A successful prayer is also one that reaches God. There is a specific way on how to reach God, and this is well defined in the scriptures. It comes with a level of understanding of His Divine Nature and His ways.
Whenever we attempt to reach someone, we first have to know where they are. We will also have to know their language in order to ensure free and effective communication.
Let’s look at Luke:17 20-21 to see what the Bible says about where God is.
God is a King, the King of Kings, and the King lives in the Kingdom. The Bible is very clear when it says ‘the Kingdom of God is within you.’ So when asked the question of ‘how to reach God,’ the Biblical response is “God is within you.”
There is no secret to the whereabouts of God, but God the Creator made man in His own image, and also lives in this image. God is within you!
How to communicate with the God within you.
Our capacity to reach God is tied to our capacity to Believe that He is present. This means that the presence of God in our lives is in direct proportion to how much we think He is present in our lives.
Truth is, God is always present. When the issue of how to reach God arise, the problem is not about God being present (He is always present), but it is in how much we can partake of His presence, to become more like Him. And as we become more like Him, our prayers become easy.
In the deepest sense, when we become more like God, we begin to live a life of prayer. When we look at Jesus, we see how natural and easy He communicated with the Father. Jesus is the true example of the divine nature living in human body, and we should seek to exemplify Him. Being the Son, Jesus was so confident when He prayed, that His prayers were always whole.
Jesus’ prayers were also in union with the purpose of God. Jesus was always praying for the fulfillment of the will of God in His life. This is the right way to pray, when we pray unto the fulfillment of the will of God.
The Prayer That Reaches God
We must dig deep into who we are, if we seek to find God. We must not look for God anywhere but within us. Also, we must recognize that we are a subset of God, and in turn we must become expressions of God.
The prayer that reaches God, is the prayer that is so saturated with faith that it digs up the very nature of God within us. It is the prayer that petitions for the purpose and the will of God to be done.
Without faith our prayers will never be heard. When we pray in faith, the Bible says that we will be able to say to the mountain, be moved and the mountain will be moved.
A prayer of faith is so potent that it cannot be denied. The Psalmist asks the question “Who can ascend into the hills of the Lord, or who can stand in His holy place?” The Bible went on to say that the man who has clean hands and a pure heart, and has not lifted up his soul unto vanity, is the one able to stand in God’s presence.
Pray With The Right Attitude
Let us pray with the right attitude that works. Let’s pray from a place of purity and truth. Having clean hands does not mean you are perfect. It means that you are fully submitted to the God Who answers prayers. Pray with confidence, knowing that every word you pour into heaven is heard by the Creator. Don’t lose hope, because we have a living hope in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Pray In Fervency
The one who prays in fervency will appease the grace of heaven. When we pray and as we pray, let us clasp our hearts more than our hands, and let us kneel our spirits in the place of our knees. Submit to the presence of the I Am and He will lift you up.
Utter your prayers in the heavenly language of faith and you will be heard. Be Blessed as you go, and remember as you pray to never give up!
