John 14:14: “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.”

Dr. John R. Rice said: Prayer is basically “asking and receiving” but there are three other aspects of prayer: (1) communion, (2) petition, and (3) intercession. Today, we will begin looking at these three aspects of prayer.

1. First, is Communion. This is fellowship with God. We read God’s Word so that He can speak to us; then we go to Him in prayer. We worship Him, we adore Him, we praise Him, we thank Him for His blessings, we tell Him how much we love Him.

Communion also includes confession, for we cannot commune with God if we have unconfessed sin in our life.

Communion with God is absolutely essential. It is through communion with God that we come to know Him and experience His power. The Bible says, “the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”

If you do not know Jesus Christ as your Saviour, John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

The Bible also says in Romans 10:9 and 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved…. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

If you believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead, and you want to trust Him for your salvation today, please pray with me this simple prayer: Holy Father God, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. I am sorry for my sins, and I want to turn from my sins. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. I trust Him as my Savior and follow Him as Lord from this day forward. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you just trusted Jesus Christ as your Saviour, and you prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, I declare to you that based upon the Word of God, you are now saved from Hell and you are on your way to Heaven. Welcome to the family of God! I want to congratulate you on doing the most important thing in life and that is receiving Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour. For more information to help you grow in your newfound faith in Christ, go to Gospel Light and read “What To Do After You Enter Through the Door”. Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

Until next time, May the Lord Bless You!
