“Making the main thing, the main thing,” we’re discussing the importance of developing a healthy prayer life. Based on the understanding that prayer is spiritual communication based on a spiritual relationship.
My favorite way of describing prayer is simply fellowship with our Father. So a healthy prayer life, a lifestyle if you will, is being able to fellowship with God right in the middle of our daily routine.
Matthew 5:43-44 (NKJV)
“You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you,”
Praying for others, intercession, going to God in their behalf has a much bigger impact than most of us take the time to acknowledge. Remember, faith only works through love. So for us to have an effective prayer life, one of the main things we’ll have to keep the main thing is our love walk. And make no mistake, the only way we’ll ever do this will be by faith.
Peter writes, everything that goes into a life of God has been given to us by getting to know Him personally and intimately. We’ve been given these absolutely terrific promises so we can participate in the God Life.
Until we embrace prayer as fellowship with God, prayer will stay this spiritual thing Christians go to when they’re in trouble, or have certain needs that are currently out of their reach. What we fail to realize that the better our fellowship with our Father, the more most of our troubles and needs are no longer an issue.
Human nature will constantly pull against the things of the Spirit.So if we’re always looking to our intellectual, carnal world to confirm a world that makes no sense to our humanity, then faith and prayer will always be that mysterious thing we’re always a little unsure of.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)
Trust GOD from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for GOD ’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; he’s the one who will keep you on track. Don’t assume that you know it all. Run to GOD!
There is a Kingdom of Heaven principle, a divine, supernatural life connected with simply hanging out with our Father. Our challenge is growing in this kind of relationship. Remember, more things are caught than taught.
The more time we simply fellowship with God, the more His nature, personality, His attitude becomes ours.Proverbs 3 actually becomes part of who we are and this world no longer has the same influence.
If fellowship with God is what we’re looking for, I want to challenge you with something that will absolutely change your life, start practicing the presence of God in your life. When we practice this principle, it transforms our thinking from an intellectual, humanistic perspective, to being more spiritual minded.

This is why Paul instructs us in Romans that in order to live more spiritual, we have to set our mind on the things of the Spirit. And practicing His presence keeps us more God inside minded with everything we do.
2 Timothy 1:12-14 (NLT)
“That is why I am suffering here in prison. But I am not ashamed of it, for I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that He is able to guard what I have entrusted to Him until the day of His return. Hold on to the pattern of wholesome teaching you learned from me—a pattern shaped by the faith and love that you have in Christ Jesus. Through the power of the Holy Spirit who lives within us, carefully guard the precious truth that has been entrusted to you.”

This kind of trust only comes out of a close relationship.
God and His word never change; so anytime you get to feeling like God isn’t there, guess who moved?
The Holy Spirit instructs us in Ephesians to not live so carelessly and unthinking, but to make sure we comprehend what Jesus actually did for us.

I believe this was Jesus’ point when He asked His disciples, “Who do you say that I am?” So, if God’s word seems old and routine, chances are, so is your fellowship.
John 15:7 (MSG)
If you make yourselves at home with Me and My words are at home in you, you can be sure that whatever you ask will be listened to and acted upon.
Jesus has the 70, the 12, the 3, and make no mistake, there will be a recognizable difference in someone that makes themself more available to Jesus.
So a healthy prayer life, a lifestyle if you will, is being able to fellowship with God right in the middle of our daily routine.
Peter writes, everything that goes into a life of God has been given to us by getting to know Him personally and intimately. We’ve been given these absolutely terrific promises so we can participate in the God Life.
