“5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all [men] liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 6 But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. 7 For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord. 8 A double minded man [is] unstable in all his ways.”
James 1:5 – 8
Here are some examples of types of Prayer:
Stand and Pray (Verbal): There is a gathering of people and you are going to do a Corporate Prayer, which means, one person prays and everyone else agrees with them in prayer. You also do this type of prayer when there is more than one person present and you are about to eat and you need to Bless the food. This type of Prayer is also used in Big Crowds, when speaking a Requests, and Blessings upon them.
Sit and Pray (Verbal or Silent): In most cases, the verbal is from someone that may not be able to stand for any length of time due to injury or illness. In other cases it is due to a Lack Of Respect to God, they are just speaking without Honor.
Praying in Silence is usually, but not always, is giving God the Honor and Respect He demands. Again, and I will say this often, It Depends On the Individual’s Attitude, Heart and What Is Said.
Pray On Your Knees (Verbal or Silent): This is more Humbling, you are bowing yourself down to Jesus the King of kings, Lord of lords and submitting yourself to enter into a Relationship with Jesus. Most of the time it is Jesus, Holy Spirit and You and no one else or nothing else.
Praying Prostrate (Verbal or Silent): Is the Most Humbling that one can do. When you lay yourself down on the ground or floor with your face downward, and you desire to enter into God’s Presents. Usually it is those who have Hearts Broken before God Seeking His Direction and Guidance. It is not clear, but our Lord Jesus may have done this type of Prayer before being arrested. This type of Prayer can also be considered a form of entering into Warfare against the enemy’s attack’s.
“And he went forward a little, and fell on the ground, and prayed that, if it were possible, the hour might pass from him.”
This type of Prayer can be, but not always, associated to someone being at the end of their rope, someone who is grieving and needing answers that they cannot seem to find. In some cases, God Requires it from certain Individual’s when they approach Him. This type of Prayer, is making oneself as low as one can get, to Humble oneself to Your Maker, God, to give Him ALL the Adoration that He deserves, to Live a Surrendered Life before Jesus and giving Him Full Control of your Life, understanding that your Life is in the Palm of His Hands to Lead you, into whatever paths He desires.
I have seen many, many things happen when Humbling yourself in this type of Prayer, in the Physical and Spiritual realms.
Out next topic will be about Praying in Warfare, what it means and how to enter in.
Amen and Amen!!!
Be Blessed in the Mighty Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savor!!!
Amen and Amen!!!
