Deposit prayers to the Father in Jesus name!
Hello, all Royal Prayer Guards and all those who join us!
Thank you for your loyalty, and diligence as we continue to be dependable in our prayer efforts for others and honoring our Father.
For those in Christ:
This prayer focus is directed to those in Christ. Why because we are His children; we have the name of Jesus, and He is our Savior…and we have the honor and responsibility to pray.
Dictionary definition for the word deposit: to place especially for safekeeping
Jesus prayed (deposited - put in) prayers to the Father for people!
John 17:9 (NKJV)
I pray for them. I do not pray for the world but for those whom You have given Me, for they are Yours.
John 17:20 (NKJV)
"I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word”
As believers in Christ, we ought to follow in His steps and copy Him.
In other words, we should pray (deposit - put in) prayers to the Father for people and all areas of life!
If God’s children ask anything according to His will, He hears us.
However, we need to know what His will is to have the confidence that He hears us.
This is one reason we should read His word with consistency with the application. Consistency prevents us from forgetting.
1 John 5:14-15 (NKJV)
Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. 15 And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.
Jeremiah 1:12 (AMP)
Then said the Lord to me, You have seen well, for I am alert and active, watching over My word to perform it.
Isaiah 55:11 (NKJV)
So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; It shall not return to Me void, But it shall accomplish what I please, And it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.
Ponder about this perspective!
Our prayers are with the heavenly Father everywhere He is, which is everywhere at the same time.
Therefore, our prayers are everywhere at the same time for those we have prayed for.
The Father is holding our prayers on behalf of those being prayed for and He can activate them as He pleases, in His time.
Ponder about another perspective!
If our prayers are filled with God’s words, and since His words "will by no means pass away", then, our prayers will not pass away, because they are filled with His words. Therefore, be sure our prayers are filled with God’s words.
Luke 21:32-33 (NKJV)
Assuredly, I say to you, this generation will by no means pass away till all things take place. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away.
