Desperation (SOS) Prayers
These are prayers in which the Almighty is called upon in emergencies such as: imminent danger, sickness or death. Almost every believer and many, many unbelievers have prayed 'SOS prayers.' It's a wonderful thing that YaHuWaH, the Almighty Elohim of Israel, answers 'SOS prayers.' Praise His mercy and love for this.
'Give Me' Prayers
These are prayers in which the Almighty is presented with a spiritual 'shopping list.' 'Give me this,' 'give me that' or 'give me something else.' There is nothing wrong with 'give me prayers' as long as one asks for the right things with the right motives. But if you only pray 'give me' prayers you will not progress far; because you will miss the great spiritual blessing of allowing the Most High to decide what He thinks is best for you. All of us are 'children' in YaHuWaH 's sight; and like children we spend far too much time pestering our heavenly Father for things which are not good for us. We also often fail to recognize our own motives for what they often are - camouflaged selfishness or pride!
These are prayers where we thankfully acknowledge YaHuWaH 's presence, His help in time of need, His mercy and infinite love. Gratitude is one of the greatest of spiritual graces. Cultivate gratitude by thanking the Almighty for His manifold gifts and you will rise above the norm to a higher level of peace and joy than you have ever known. Pray prayers of thankfulness.
These are prayers in which one communicates with YaHuWaH on behalf of others. Comparatively few believers pray intercessory prayers; simply because most of us fail to realize the power of prayer and that YaHuWaH is earnestly looking for His followers to intercede for the lost.
|Isa. 59:15||... and YaHuWaH saw it, and it displeased Him that there was no judgment.
16: And He saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor
Because of this lack of intercession and communication (silently meditating and conversing with YaHuWaH and His Son, listening to His still small voice speaking in our innermost being) let us now consider YAHUSHUA the Messiah's prayer as recorded in John 17. In this sermon we will note how the Savior communicates with His Father and how He intercedes for His disciples and also for those who would believe the Gospel through their word.
|John 17: 4||I have glorified Thee on the Earth.|
|John 15:10||I have kept My Father's commandments, and abide in His love.
Manifesting the Father's Name is another vital objective; but it goes far beyond making known the name of YaHuWaH to those who previously didn't know it. Manifesting the Almighty's Name means:
Only when a believer accepts and lives out these spiritual concepts and duties can he/she truthfully say 'I know and manifest the Name of the Almighty.' The Master's prayer on this matter was:
|John 17:6:||I have manifested Thy Name unto the men which thou gavest Me out of the world: thine they were, and Thou gavest them Me; and they have kept Thy word.
YaHuWaH 's Gospel of Salvation, is the greatest piece of information this world has ever heard. It is the duty of every believer to pass it on to others. The Master's prayer regarding this was:
|John 17: 8||For I have given unto them the words which Thou gavest Me; and they have received them…
|John 17: 9||I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given Me; for they are Thine.
NOTE: "I pray" (present tense), not "I prayed"
Every one of us has a responsibility towards others, especially to those under our authority (our children). The world speaks much about 'human rights;' but little is heard these days about 'human responsibilities.' YAHUSHUA's prayer concerning this was:
|John 17: 12||While I was with them in the world, I kept them in Thy Name: those that thou gavest Me I have kept, and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition; that the scripture might be fulfilled.|
|John 17:14||I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.|
|John 17:18||As Thou hast sent Me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world.
|John 17: 19||And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth.
|John 17:20||Neither pray I for these alone,
but for them also which shall believe on Me through their word.
|John 17:4||I have glorified thee on the Earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest Me to do.|
|Mark 13:34:||The Son of man is as a man taking a far journey, who left his house, and gave authority to his servants, and to every man his work, and commanded the porter to watch.
35: Watch ye therefore: for ye know not when the master of the house cometh, at even, or at midnight, or at the cock crowing, or in the morning:
36: Lest coming suddenly he find you sleeping.
The Almighty's immediate goal is to overthrow sin throughout the universe; to replace doubt with faith, fear with confidence, sin with righteousness and hate with love. To do this He must first needs accomplish His work in His people. YaHuWaH 's ultimate objective is that the universe will be inhabited by souls who know His Name; that is, by believers who will perfectly reflect His character and be His friends for all time! Those who profess to know the Almighty's Name but who behave like Satan are deluding only themselves. The Master's prayer concerning this was:
|John 17: 26||And I have declared unto them Thy Name, and will declare it: that the love wherewith Thou hast loved Me may be in them, and I in them.
