32517 Let us pray.....

"Lord, teach us to pray" (Luke 11:1)
We live and develop physicality by exercise. We read and develop our knowledge by reading the words what will open our eyes and our heart. We are saved by faith, but we must work out our salvation by doing the things God wills. The more we do for God, the more God will do through us. Faith will increase by experience. However if we see then the translations in the bible in America and the Benelux for easy reading then we suddenly realise that there are forces working to lead is away from the right path, by altering the path as is known from the early beginning. We can only pray that we will follow the right path and are not lead astray to a path not parallel with the truth.
If you are a stranger to prayer you are a stranger to the greatest test source of power known to human beings. If we cared for our physical life in the same lackadaisical way that we care for our spiritual life, we would be as weak physically as we are spiritually. You can go week in and week out without a prayer, you don't even sing the hymns; you let the choir do it. You go to the church to pray but offer no testimony. You are a stranger to the great privilege that is offered to human beings. Some of the greatest blessings that people enjoy come from prayer. In earnest prayer you think as the Lord directs, and lose yourself in him.
Some people say: "It's no use to pray. The Lord knows everything, anyway.” they say you do not have to pray as he will not hear you or listen to you, but he hears you and that is true. He does. He is not limited, as we are limited. He knows everything and has known it since before the world was. For what God knows, doesn't know, and chooses not to know, see omniscience. We don't know everybody who is going to be converted at this revival, but that doesn't relieve us of our duty. We don't know, and we must do the work he has commanded us to do. However, others say: "But I don't get what I pray for." Well, there's a cause for everything. Get at the cause and you'll be all right. If you are sick and send for the doctor, he pays no attention to the disease, but looks at what produced it. If you have a headache, don't rub your forehead but relax and take the medicine.
In Matthew 7:7 it is written, "Ask and it shall be given you; seek and ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto you. If your prayers are not answered you are not right with God. If you have no faith, if your motive is wrong, then your prayers will be in vain. Many times when people pray they are selfish. They are not gripping the word. We believe that when many a wife prays for the conversion of her husband it isn't because she really desires the salvation of his soul, but because she thinks if he were converted things would be easier for her personally. Pray for your neighbours as well as your own family. The pastor of one church does not pray for the congregation of another denomination. I'm not saying anything against denominations. I believe in them. I believe they are of God. Denominations represent different temperaments.
A man with warm emotions would not make a good Episcopalian, but he would make a crackerjack Methodist. Oh, the curse of selfishness! The Church is dying for religion, for religion pure and undefiled. Pure religion and undefiled is visiting the widow and the fatherless (James 1:27) and doing the will of God without so much thought of yourself. I tell you, a lot of people are going to be fooled the Day of Judgment. Isaiah 59:1 says the hand of God is not shortened and his ear is not deaf. No, his hand is not shortened so that it cannot save. He has provided agencies by which we can be saved. If he had made no provision for your salvation, then the trouble would be with God; but he has, so if you go to hell the trouble will be with you.
In Ezekiel we read that men have taken idols into their hearts and put stumbling-blocks before their faces (Ezek. 14:3). God is not going to hear you if you place clothes, money, pride of relationship before him. You know there is sin in your life. Many people know there is sin in their lives, yet ask God to bless them. They ought first to get down on their knees and pray, "God be merciful to me a sinner" (Luke 18:13). However, some people are too contemptibly stingy for God to hear them. God won't hear you if you stop your ears to the cries of the poor the weak and the ill. When they give things to the poor they rip off the buttons and the fine braid. Some people pick out old clothes that the moths have made into sieves and give them to the poor and think they are charitable. That isn't charity, no certainly not; its charity when you'll give something you'll miss. It's charity when you feel it to give.
And when you stand praying, forgive if you have aught anything against anyone. It's no use to pray if you have a mean, miserable disposition, if you are grouchy, if you quarrel in your home or with your neighbours. It's no use to pray for a blessing when you have a fuss on with your friends or neighbours. It doesn't do you any good. You go to a creative meeting to help the people in need in your own country or in countries far away, but you do it for the reason to be seen instead of for the will to help others, the spirit of God flees from strife and discord. People will say: "She is a good woman, but a worldly Christian. We may as well speak of a heavenly devil in disguise. We may as well expect a mummy to speak and bear children as that kind to move the world God-ward. Prayer draws you nearer to God. Even if you think God do not hear you, just remind yourself God does in his mysterious ways.
