Be Bold In Prayer
“So let us come boldly to the very throne of God and stay there to receive His mercy and to find grace to help us in our times of need.”
— Hebrews 4:16 (NIV)
Boldness in prayer is an uncomfortable thought for many. We think of speaking softly to God, humbling ourselves before God, or having a chat with God… but agonizing before God?
Storming Heaven with prayers?
Pounding on the door of the Most High?
Wrestling with God?
Isn’t such prayer irreverent?
It would be had God not invited us to pray as such.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths. — Proverbs 3:5-6
Our relationship with God is exactly that, a relationship. His invitation is clear and simple:
Come and talk with Me, O my people. — Psalm 27:8 (TLB)
And our response?
Lord, I am coming. — Psalm 27:8 (TLB)
We abide with Him, and He abides with us. He grants wisdom as we need it.
But God doesn’t show us the whole itinerary ahead. He will help us against the devil. He will disclose the craftiness of Satan. But we must regularly consult Him.
In everything. His word is a “lamp unto [our] feet” (Psa. 119:105), not a spotlight into the future. He gives enough light to take the next step.
Your own ears will hear Him. Right behind you a voice will say, “This is the way you should go,” whether to the right or to the left. — Isaiah 30:21
Refer every decision to the tribunal of heaven. Like David, you can ask God to“bend low and hear my whispered plea” (Psalm 31:2 TLB).
God will surely speak! He is a Father indeed. You too must be the son of His right hand.
Keep this truth in mind;
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. (Luke 12:32 NIV)
It is the will and good pleasure of God to give you all the blessings and prosperity of His kingdom, so do not be afraid to ask. Do so boldly too!
It is your season t breakthrough and break-forth in Jesus Name. Amen.
Dear God, My Father, and My Lord. I come boldly by the blood and ask for the grace to live a holy, godly, righteous and prosperous life. Grant me uncommon wisdom and innovative ideas. Grant unto me a large and bold mouth, confidence and boldness that can not be intimidated, and lead me to the hidden treasures in this land. It is my time and season to breakthrough and break-forth.
In Jesus’ Name I pray.
