BIBLE TRUTH E-NEWS | JUNE 2006
I have been studying
for several weeks the prayer life of Jesus as mentioned in Luke’s
Gospel. He prayed five times in this book. This Gospel has been called
by some the ‘Gospel According to Prayer’. God has blessed in
this study with several great truths about prayer’s Altering Work. One truth is found in Luke 9:18; “And it came to pass as He was alone
praying, His disciples were with Him…” He was praying but they were
just there. Let us be assured that you might not feel like praying or
even have the mental capacity to pray but ‘He ever liveth to make
intercession for us’.
The other truth is
in Luke 9:29; “And as he prayed, the fashion of his countenance was
altered,” The word ‘altered’ means to have a drastic change to
happen. I feel confident that prayer is not to change the things of our
circumstances. The Bible says He is always the same, He changes not.
He did everything before He ever did anything. I believe prayer is to
change us as we through prayer enter into His divine alteration and say
‘not my will but thine be done’.
