In every place of worship, I want men to pray with holy hands lifted up to God. Free from anger and controversy.
1 Timothy 2:8

As men of God it is contingent upon us to pray on a continual basis. It is the power that allows us to tap into the heavens concerning every area of our lives. We find that in our example (Jesus Christ) prayer was the instrument used to lead, encourage,direct,comfort,and protect our Lord concerning all the challenges that were presented to him through out his time hear on earth. The Lord Jesus gives us a template on how to pray. Matthew 6:9 illustrates his instruction to us on how to pray.It says,

" Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.

As men lets line up with the authority that is above us. He hears us and will never leave or forsake us. As the priest and prophets of our home it is our spiritual dicipline that will move our God concerning our finances, relationships, children, wives, communities, nation, and world. In Isaiah chapter 59 he confirms through the prophet his inclination to hear us. It says,"
Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear. But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.
I pray today as men we remove ourselves from those iniquities that separate us from our God. Without him we will not overcome those challenges that present themselves by way of the nature we were born with. Without prayer men we are doomed to perish.
