my people their transgression, and the house of Jacob their sins.




"Holiness unto the Lord"

The Sacredness of Prayer is to honor the perfection of Christ’s Presence in His Holy Word.  This is God’s covering, a blood covering for the Church of God for protection.

I’ve been taking the Word of God with me in prayer in thanksgiving, bringing my offering of gratitude for Christ Jesus giving Him of Himself for us.  We are chosen to daily show our affections for His Grace and Mercy.

I am praying to stay focused to be taught to accept my “learnings” in prayer.  It is one thing to “hear” in prayer, but my prayer is to honor obedience for what I hear . . . for the perfection of my soul.

 In prayer, I was admonished to stay focused in the Word of God while praying, because the blood flow of Jesus Christ operates in our minds to restore joy and peace.  The heart of the mind is the renewal station for the Spirit of Truth to strengthen the inner man for the character of God’s Holiness to follow peace with all men.

Accepting our “learnings” of what we hear by faith challenges our giving of ourselves.  We are to be committed for prayer and consecration in the Word of God daily for a cultivated heart to honor God’s emotions—His affections for the Spirit to lead us to purity.

Sacred Prayer is given to his chosen for the establishment of the Kingdom of God for eternal living in Christ Jesus.  This is meditational worship in the Spirit of Truth for directions for our character.

“But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer” (I Peter 4:7).

I am praying for my time of effectiveness in my serving the Lord Jesus Christ.  The time is nigh.  I desire my emotions in prayer to relate to the attitude of Christ’s desires and decisions.  To stay focused, I need His discernment to remain “awakened” to Spiritual responsibilities.

In prayer, I heard, “Stay focused . . . Prayer is Sacred . . . Watch unto Prayer.”

Watch unto Prayer → in your prayer times; closely observe your thoughts, meditations, and desires, praying for Holy living for creative love to demonstrate the power of God in your inward man.

The Sacredness of Prayer . . . Watch Unto Prayer

I find I have thoughts of interference that conflict with giving God praise in my prayer times. These interferences come and distract my mind of thought in my praise in prayer.

As I prayed, I heard, “Be careful of conflicting thoughts . . . concern yourself.” I heard that Satan uses all distracting thoughts in prayer to control weakness or weariness in our mind to keep us tormented in afflictions.  These are temptations.  These must be rebuked, in Jesus’ name. 

When you begin to worship in Spirit and in Truth in prayer according to St. John 4:24, you are giving pure affections before the Throne of Grace to obtain pardon and mercy for our condition.

We must realize that in prayer we are in a very sacred position before God to present a Holy offering for all our needs, and the needs of others.  

When we present ourselves in prayer, we are going into God’s dwelling

place—before the Throne of Grace—for strength—making our supplications and petitions known for Spiritual deliverance.

We cannot take prayer for granted: “I am just kneeling . . . I am here, Lord.”  Prayer is a great privilege appointed to us to offer up an offering to our Messiah, Jesus Christ, our LORD.  He is our Salvation, our Deliverer; He is our Defense.

Prayer is God’s Covenant Promise for our perfect relationship with Him.  “Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you” (St. Matthew 7:7).

Watch unto Prayer . . . be careful, concerned about allowing your meditations to be controlled by worldly affections that profit nothing in the Kingdom of God.  While we are in communication and seek Him first, we will receive everything we need.

Prayer is serious, sacred, and in humility we must honor the sacredness of His Omnipotence with reverence.  When we go before Him, or spend time with our Lord, we should say, “Lord, what is your desire for me today . . . I come to cherish Your love.”

Our prayer times are Holy times.  We cannot enter the dwelling place of prayer with half-hearted fellowship: “Do it for me first Lord, and I will come back and give you praise.”

Watch unto Prayer . . . Be Careful . . . Satan comes with worldly distractions to camouflage our minds to make us feel God doesn’t know how serious our condition is. 

Prayer comes for us to yield our will, knowing there is a way made

In Isaiah 43:2, we are already admonished: “When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.”

Be aware:  Prayer times are important times of opportunity given for preparation of our personal deliverance by faith.  When we are “in prayer,” in the Spirit, and in the Word, we are walking in His will—abiding in Christ—the Anointed One.  His habitation of praise operates our belief (Ps. 22:3).

Prayer is operated by the Spiritual Anointing that breaks and destroys yokes of bondage to make us free indeed.  Be aware—the Sacredness of Prayer has weaponry that is Holy.  This is the “Call to Watch unto Prayer” . . .  our weapon of defense is Christ Jesus, the Word in action to fight for us.

We must concern ourselves with interference—fleshly attacks—to distort or cause our prayers to be “held up” because of Satanic invasions.  In prayer, we cannot only "ask for,” but we have to realize we are in combat with the enemy for our receiving.

When we pray, the mind is the place for our spiritual renewal in the Word of God, so when we enter into the worship of prayer, watch unto prayer because the mind is the battleground for spiritual attacks. 

In prayer, be on your guard—avoid being tricked into meditations in prayer to seize your mind to stop your worship.  Pray in authority to rebuke demonic warfare, in the name of Jesus.  Stay focused . . . Spiritually Alert . . . Spiritually Awake in prayer.  You are on duty in prayer, fighting warfare with clean hands and a pure heart.

Prayer shows/reveals the Spiritual Paths of Righteousness.

 Prayer is for Worship

Prayer is for overcoming the enemy’s plots and plans to hinder

God’s Kingdom establishment in our lives

When we go in prayer, are we fleshly awake?  Are we spiritually awake—quickened to be inspired to continue in prayer?

When you go in prayer, ask to be spiritually awakened for God’s Glory.  When one is spiritually awake, he/she has a spiritual vision—eyes of the Spirit of God—to be spiritually alert for attacks of the enemy’s traps. 

Satan comes to drug us with worldly affections to make us unaware of the value of time to be spiritually awake.  When we “see” through the eyes of God, we will detect Satan’s ambush of plans to destroy our souls.

The distractions of the devil come with surprise attacks to trap us in a concealed position in our minds to lose the desire for prayer.  That’s the reason we are instructed to rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say rejoice—in the Word of God.  Our rejoicing in our prayer times creates spiritual energy to honor the wait for Christ’s return.

The Sacredness of Prayer is the call to be sober and watch unto prayer because the end of all things is at hand.  Prayer is given for seeking first the Kingdom of God.  It’s time to know God’s plans for our lives.  We have to rebuke foul play that comes to entertain our minds, so we are instructed to Be Sober.

Dear Hearts, let us pray together for strength to be influenced by self-control.  We must know our times to rebuke the enemy.  We need discernment of ourselves and our desires. 

Let us ask ourselves a question:  What really motivates me to pray?

Let us pray for pure affections to honor God’s desires of His Righteousness in this hour.  We must now build up ourselves in our most holy faith according to Jude 1:20.  Prayer in our minds is needed!

Let us pray the prayer given for this hour . . .

O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land where no water is.

To see thy power and thy Glory, so as I have seen thee in the sanctuary.

Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Praise ye the Lord.  Praise, O ye servants of the LORD, praise the name of the LORD.

Blessed be the name of the LORD from this time forth and for evermore.

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD’S name is to be praised. (Ps. 63:1-3 and Ps. 113:1-3)
