How to Pray: Exposing Common Misconceptions

4 Jan

Most people don’t realize there is lack of knowledge when it comes to how to pray. Many assume that we need to tell God how he must handle our lives and the lives of others. This often leads to controlling, witchcraft like prayers that only do more harm than good. The underlying problem, first of all, that is causing people to have problems on knowing how to pray according to God’s accord, is that there are countless, untold masses that have had false conversions.

Before, establishing faithful prayer with God, those who have had a false conversion must realize they had one, renounce it, and overturn it.

The false conversion was started by a preacher named Charles Finney who in the 1830’s, introduced the I accept Jesus practice. Before the persuasion to “accept Jesus” took over, the gospel of Jesus was focused on and there was knowledge that salvation is given to us by God not of ourselves.

A historic document was prepared in 1689 called the Second London Baptist Confession, and was written by Particular Baptists, who held to a Calvinistic Soteriology in England to give a formal expression of their Christian faith from a Baptist perspective. This confession, like the Westminster Confession of Faith (1646) and the Savoy Declaration (1658), was written by Puritans who were concerned that their particular church organisation reflect what they perceived to be Biblical teaching. Because it was adopted by the Philadelphia Association of Baptist Churches in the 18th century, it is also known as the Philadelphia Confession of Faith. The confession was first published in London in 1677 under the title “A confession of Faith put forth by the Elders and Brethren of many Congregations of Christians, Baptized upon Profession of their Faith in London and the Country.

This document highlights man, by his fall into a state of sin, has completely lost all ability of will to perform any of the spiritual good which accompanies salvation. In short, the document shows that man is not reliable enough to choose God because his free will is too corrupt. So clearly, the Holy Spirit was in the church, prior to Charles Finney and the sinner’s prayer treachery.

So when you accept Jesus, what is happening is many are worshiping a fallen angel religious evil spirit, pretending to be Jesus and that fallen angel is interepting their prayers. This leads people to be led astray when it comes to how to pray. The devil is confusing them, keeping them in darkness, and preventing them from praying with faith in God instead of fear. There is also the tendency to pray according to what one wants to satisfy their own flesh, wants, and needs, oftentimes these needs are entirely selfish and is not in line with what God has in store for them.

Want to pray to God in a way where you are able to be led in truth and down his path? When you pray, ask the Lord to expose the darkness surrounding you. You may be surprised what God reveals to you, as many who have done this have been shown just how much darkness and deception Satan has kept them in bondage to. He may also reveal what you are doing to repeatedly keep yourself in the dark and allow yourself to be easy prey to the devils schemes and deception.

Whether born again or not, you can learn a lot about God when you pray, yet praying according to God’s will is important. For the born again Christian, prayer is a special way to communicate with God and continue to build in your understanding of his ways so that you may better serve him but it is crucial to find out if you mistakenly are worshiping the fake Jesus.

During salvation, God comes to you, he calls you in his due time, he will show you your true wicked ways, when he is ready, and the Holy Spirit will lead you to repent. The key thing to understand is that God and the Holy Spirit shows this to you. Yes mans free will is granted and one of the multitudes of gifts from God, but when it comes to the grace of salvation from the life, death, and bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, this gift is a supernatural experience, a gift entirely given by God; it is not of our own doing but God and the Holy Spirit leads us to salvation. He gives us the faith to believe in the death and ressurection of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Such confusion about how to pray often has to do with folks underestimating God’s wisdom and fear often intertwines among this thinking. We then often think we must tell God what he must do for us in order to fix everything, leading us down the wrong path when it comes to how to pray. Often times when trouble arises in life, fear sets in, all common sense goes out the window, and leads to frantic prayers that may draw more fear, misunderstanding to your life.

Prayer IS a valuable form of communication with God, but it is essential to be conscious of whether we are going about it the wrong way. So let us consider wisdom when we come to terms of whether we even need to pray or not.

Many fail to understand that part of wisdom is being careful, observant, and knowing when to speak and when to listen (Proverbs 29: 3-11). An example that you may have already received God’s wisdom, would be, God revealing to you that you have put yourself under bondage to the devil by doing witchcraft, occult practices ( yoga, visiting psychic mediums, meditation, reading tarot cards, ) and yet still professing to be a Chriatian, as a result this is the reason you are battling with demons.

For help on how to pray, focus on exposure of what is hidden and what is God’s will, what does he intend for you. If you realize you where worshipping the fake Jesus and still struggling with ritualistic prayer, try letting go of expectating your every need and desire to be granted to you. Recognize that God does not grant us our every wish. Sometimes what we think is best for us, God may not think the same. Take hold of your God given common sense as your guide when you are making decisions, even difficult ones; when they are difficult remove your emotional hang ups and try to decide with logic, reasoning, and rational thought: and when you do this you may find that you may not need to pray. Allow yourself to be rid of a false conversion and worshipping the fake Jesus, so that one day God will birth you in his due time to be a new creature in Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Then, enjoy prayer with an established faith and foundation with God.
