This is the prayer that our Lord Jesus Christ desires us to pray;
" A prayer to be filled and grow in the spirit "
This is what He wants from us, not our selfish prayers that demands God of blessing to killing bones enemy. All things God does according to His will if only you walk with Him. But why do you always want to receive and never give?
God's children, living always, a holy life without sin don't have to pray for blessings because they themselves, their life is a prayer, a sacrifice unto God, they themselves arena blessing. When you live a holy life before God, your life already is a fragrance offering filling the throne of God, now tell me if God will not do anything for you even if you don't ask for it.
God's presence abides with His children, always, watching over them, but the ungodly he turns his face away. The only reason the ungodly still receive blessing is because of His grace after all He said ' doesn't the rain still fall on both the righteous and the ungodly.
Many of pray, and make demands, because they can't see God, if they could see God face to face, they won't make such demands they're making. They shout here and there, jump up and down, scattering everywhere, if they stand face to face with God, not even face to face, but to come to realization of who God is, they'll humble themselves and ask from Him,
" Lord, what will you have me do? "
Many can't pray scriptural prayers, they can't remind God of His word, because they don't have the word, God's word isn't dominating their heart. Sin does not let man have a real relationship with the father, he makes request with fear, how many can boldly remind God of his word, for example;
" Lord, surely you said; ' no bones in my body shall be broken, "
( Meaning; all that you've put under my care as shepherd, none shall be lost )
How many can say;
" Blessed is he who hears the word and obeys them, for he shall be blessed in all thy ways," or
" For you who have loved righteousness and have hated evil, I shall set you above your companions,"
" you shall prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemy,"
because a sinner is an enemy of God.
They can't remind God of these word, because they know deep down in their heart, they're corrupted, it is the spirit of God in you that removes every fear and reminds you of the words of the Father and even things He has not said.
If you can't boldly remind Him of His word, it shows that sin lies in the depth of your heart. It's like a thief telling God that all thieves shall perish when he himself is a thief, fear won't let him say such, and the prayer of a sinner is an abomination towards God.
Live in obedience to His word, automatically and naturally He'll grant your heart desire for the glory of His name.
Pray to grow in the spirit to know God more, not only about your stomach. It is good to pray about other things, but do not neglect your dying soul, do not neglect what God wants you to do for His kingdom.
" Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer you bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God. This is your spiritual act of worship."
You cannot become a sacrifice without living a life without sin. Don't say its impossible, that's what the devil will always say to keep men in bondage, you have not yet struggled with sin to the extent of shedding your blood, you don't have any excuse.
