And This Is How We Should Pray! How to Pray Effectively in Righteousness

PRAYER SHOULD BE DONE IN PRIVATE: EVEN CORPORATE PRAYERS... 📝 MANY OF US HAVE ADOPTED CERTAIN BEHAVIOURS FROM OUR DAYS IN THE CHURCH SYSTEM... WE LEARNED HOW TO PRAY IN CIRCLES ALOUD -- WE PRAY ALOUD FOR ONE ANOTHER IN THE HEARING OF OTHERS; AND WE HAVE HEARD PASTORS GOING ON AND ON IN THE PULPIT, (VAIN REPETITIONS) PRAYING LONG DRAWN OUT PRAYERS FOR THE PEOPLE... THIS IS NOT WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING. THIS TYPE OF PRAYING IS PRIMARILY FOR THOSE WHO ARE LISTENING TO YOU, THAN IT IS, UNTO THE FATHER... . PEOPLE ALSO DO THE SAME THING WHEN THEY DO SOMETHING FOR SOMEONE --- THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE, THAT EVERYONE KNOWS WHAT THEY DID FOR THEM, BY MAKING IT KNOWN, WHAT THEY DID...in vain😢 . THIS OUGHT NOT BE SO... THE WORD TELLS US TO TAKE HEED, THAT WE DO NOT OUR "ALMS" (GIVING) BEFORE MEN, TO BE SEEN OF THEM: OTHERWISE, WE HAVE NO REWARD OF OUR FATHER, WHICH IS IN SHAMAYIM... HE SAID, THEREFORE, WHEN THOU DOEST THINE ALMS, DO NOT "SOUND A TRUMPET" BEFORE THEE, AS THE HYPOCRITES DO IN THE SYNAGOGUES AND IN THE STREETS, THAT THEY MAY HAVE GLORY OF MEN... TRULY I SAY UNTO YOU, THEY HAVE THEIR REWARD --- BUT WHEN THOU DOEST ALMS, LET NOT THY LEFT HAND, KNOW WHAT THY RIGHT HAND DOETH; THAT THINE ALMS MAY BE IN "SECRET" ... AND THY FATHER, WHICH SEETH IN SECRET, HIMSELF, SHALL REWARD THEE OPENLY... ALSO, WHEN THOU PRAYEST, THOU SHALT NOT BE AS THE HYPOCRITES ARE: FOR THEY LOVE TO PRAY STANDING IN THE SYNAGOGUES, AND IN THE CORNERS OF THE STREETS, THAT THEY MAY BE "SEEN' OF MEN"... TRULY I SAY UNTO YOU, THEY HAVE THEIR REWARD... BUT THOU, WHEN THOU PRAY, ENTER INTO "THY CLOSET" (SECRET PLACE), AND WHEN THOU HAS "SHUT YOUR DOOR" TO "PRAY" TO THY FATHER, WHICH IS IN SECRET --- AND THY FATHER, WHICH SEETH IN SECRET, SHALL REWARD THEE OPENLY. -- MATTITYAHU 6:1-6... OUR PRAYERS SHOULD ALWAYS BE DONE IN SECRET... 📝 PRAYING AND AGREEING FOR A SPECIFIC THING, CORPORATELY... WE CAN COME TOGETHER AND AGREE TO PRAY CORPORATELY ABOUT THINGS; BUT, WHEN WE DO THAT, IT STILL SHOULD BE DONE PRIVATELY, AS WE DO IT ON ONE ACCORD... MATTITHYAHU 18:19-20 SAYS, THAT IF TWO OF YOU SHALL "AGREE" ON EARTH "ABOUT" ANY THING THAT THEY SHALL ASK, IT "SHALL BE" DONE FOR THEM, OF MY FATHER, WHICH IS IN HEAVEN... FOR WHERE TWO OR THREE ARE GATHERED TOGETHER --- > IN MY NAME, THERE AM I, IN THE MIDST OF THEM... HERE IS ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF CORPORATE ...AGREEMENT --- NOW IN THE TWENTY AND FOURTH DAY OF THIS MONTH, THE CHILDREN OF YASHAR'AL, WERE ASSEMBLED WITH FASTING, AND WITH SACKCLOTHES, AND EARTH, UPON THEM... 2. AND THE SEED OF YASHAR'AL, SEPARATED THEMSELVES FROM "ALL" STRANGERS, AND STOOD, AND CONFESSED THEIR SINS, AND THE INIQUITIES OF THEIR FATHERS... 3. AND THEY STOOD UP IN THEIR PLACE, AND READ 📖 IN THE BOOK OF THE LAW, OF YAHUAH, THEIR ALUAH 'AYYIM, ONE-FOURTH PART OF THE DAY --- AND ANOTHER FOURTH PART, THEY CONFESSED, AND WORSHIPPED YAHUAH... 4. THEN STOOD UP UPON THE STAIRS, MANY OF THE LEVYIYM, AND CRIED WITH A LOUD VOICE TO YAHUAH, V'NECHEMYAHU 9:1-4... [ ] [I>THE PRIEST WENT AND CRIED OUT TOGETHER UNTO THE MOST HIGH. SO WE CAN "ALL" COME TOGETHER, AND CRY OUT TO THE FATHER, BUT IT MUST STILL COME, FROM EACH OF OUR OWN HEARTS (MINDS)<I]... 📝 7 VERSES SHOWING HOW HA'MASHIACH ALWAYS PRAYED TO THE FATHER. 👀...

1. HE "WITHDREW HIMSELF" INTO THE WILDERNESS, AND "PRAYED", -- LUQAS 5:16...🙈

2. AFTER HE HAD SENT THEM AWAY, HE "WENT UP" ON THE MOUNTAIN👀 [I>BY HIMSELF TO PRAY<I] --- WHEN EVENING CAME, HE WAS THERE ALONE.🤔 -- MATTITYAHU 14:23.

3. WHEN HE HAD SENT THEM AWAY, "HE DEPARTED" INTO A MOUNTAIN "TO PRAY", -- MARQUS 6:46.

4. EARLY IN THE MORNING, WHILE IT WAS STILL DARK, YAHUSHA GOT UP AND "SLIPPED OUT" TO A SOLITARY PLACE "TO PRAY", MARQUS 1:35

5. IT CAME TO PASS, AS "HE WAS ALONE PRAYING" --- HIS TALMIDIYM WERE WITH HIM: AND HE ASKED THEM, SAYING, WHOM SAY THE PEOPLE THAT I AM? -- LUQAS 9:18

6. IN THOSE DAYS, YAHUSHA "WENT OUT" TO THE MOUNTAIN "TO PRAY" --- AND HE SPENT THE NIGHT IN PRAYER TO YAHUAH, LUQAS 6:12

7. YAHUSHA CAME WITH THEM TO A PLACE CALLED GETHSEMANE, AND SAID TO HIS DISCIPLES, "SIT HERE" --- > [I>WHILE I GO OVER THERE AND PRAY<I]. 🤯"HE WENT" A LITTLE FARTHER, AND FELL ON HIS FACE, AND "PRAYED" 42. 👀HE WENT AWAY AGAIN🤔 THE SECOND TIME, AND PRAYED, SAYING, O MY FATHER, IF THIS CUP MAY NOT PASS AWAY FROM ME, EXCEPT I DRINK IT, THY WILL BE DONE. 44. [I>HE LEFT THEM AGAIN<I] AND "WENT AWAY", AND PRAYED A THIRD TIME,💥SAYING THE SAME THING ONCE MORE, MATTITHYAHU 26:36,39 📝 HOW DID HA'MASHIACH TELL US TO PRAY? HE SAID, WHEN YE PRAY, USE NOT VAIN REPETITIONS, AS THE HEATHEN DO: FOR THEY THINK THAT THEY SHALL BE HEARD FOR THEIR MUCH SPEAKING... BE NOT YE, THEREFORE, LIKE UNTO THEM: FOR YOUR FATHER KNOWETH WHAT THINGS YE HAVE NEED OF, BEFORE YE ASK HIM... AFTER THIS MANNER, THEREFORE, PRAY YE: OUR FATHER, WHICH ART IN SHAMAYIN, HALLOWED BE THY NAME. THY KINGDOM COME, THY WILL BE DONE, ON EARTH, AS IT IS IN SHAMAYIN. GIVE US THIS DAY, OUR DAILY BREAD. AND FORGIVE US OUR TRANSGRESSIONS, AS WE FORGIVE THOSE WHO TRANSGESS AGAINST US. AND LEAD US NOT, INTO THE INCLINATION OF EVIL, BUT DELIVER US FROM THE OUTER DARKNESS: FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM, AND THE POWER, AND THE GLORY, FOR EVER, MATTITHYAHU 6:1-13... HE SAID, DON'T MAKE LONG DRAWN OUT PRAYERS AS IF HE CAN'T HEAR YOU. ALSO, DON'T KEEP REPEATING THE SAME THINGS OVER AND OVER AGAIN, LIKE A ROBOT, EITHER... ROMAIYN 8:26 SAYS, THE RUACH ALSO HELPETH OUR INFIRMITIES; FOR WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE SHOULD PRAY FOR AS WE OUGHT: BUT THE RUACH ITSELF, MAKETH INTERCESSION FOR US, WITH GROANINGS, WHICH CANNOT BE UTTERED... EPH'SIYM 6:18 SAYS, PRAY IN THE RUACH "AT ALL TIMES" ... WITH ALL KINDS OF PRAYERS, AND REQUESTS... WITH THIS IN MIND, BE ALERT, WITH ALL PERSEVERANCE, ALWAYS PRAYING FOR "ALL" THE SAINTS, (YASHAR'AL)... SO WHEN EVER YOU PRAY, PRAY IN SECRET; SECRET YOURSELF OFTEN THROUGHOUT YOUR DAY. PRAY WITHOUT CEASING, TASLONIQIYM RISHON 5:17...

IF YOU DON'T AGREE, YOUR FIGHT ISN'T WITH ME. (Scary)

And become doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

Ya‛aqoḇ (James) 1:22
