Prayer is not talking in the air.
Prayer is spiritual.
Prayer is companionship with God
“to open into each other” (etymology),
mediated by Jesus (as matter is to sound -without it nothing carries. He is The Way.)
and facilitated by the Holy Spirit (as language is to sound -without it no information is transferred. He is the Spirit of Truth).
to be understood and to understand.
Prayer is sharing that builds on each other and illuminates the hearts.
The purpose is to be clear, to have no darkness at all -the truth in love removing every offense (anything that would cause me or another to stumble – lies block love), to be made one, so that I can walk according to His light, so that His light might shine through me.
“God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all.”
—1 John 1:5
To this end, with full expectation,
I speak to be seen.
I listen to see.
Because of Christ, God hears me.
Because of Christ, God is a Father to me and so speaks.
“In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name…”
The Father’s speech is the pressing of the keys of the kingdom in our heart.
“And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
The more we consume His Word -the person of Christ, the more we work with a full key-board when we pray and the closer, and consequently (God’s love burns away sin), the more clear we become
for His glory.
