Developing a prayer life with God is going to be the single most important thing you can ever do. It is through prayer, and supplication that we are able to break free from bondage and be a new person in Christ. A person who is intentional, and has a purpose to win in life. I grew up with a Prayer Warrior Mother. My Mom is a Pastor, Prophetess, Author, Wife, Mother of 6, Sister, and Friend. She would pray throughout the house warring on our behalf. It wasn’t until my early twenties when she had a designated “War Room.”
I’m probably one of the few people who have yet to see, “War Room.” The movie encourages a couple whose marriage is failing to find happiness through prayer. Through prayer, they are able to develop prayer strategies that transform their lives. As a married woman myself, I know first hand that without developing a prayer life, and having faith in the Lord my marriage would not be thriving how is it. Recently, I was led to make a designated prayer space in my home. I didn’t have an additional room so I chose an area in my bedroom. I have my head covering, a chair, stand for my bible, and journals in this space. Now I pray throughout my home, but I felt it was important to have a space that was just for Yeshua and I. A place that I could really be intimate with Him and meditate on His word. The space has become a pillar in my everyday prayer life. I’ve become extremely Intentional about spending time there because it’s where I get direction for everything that I do.
If you’re yearning to grow in your relationship with God. If you’re desiring peace in your mind or healing in your life it’s important that you have a place where you can be intimate with God. A place that is free from distractions. A place where you can be completely transparent in your prayer life. Prayer changes things. It’s through your faith in God while you’re praying that you and your situation will begin to transform.
Be Intentional in your prayer time with God. Designate a special place that is especially for you and Him. While you’re there take the time to meditate on the following verses that teach us about prayer. Blessings.
