1. Prayer enables you to set your mind on the things above. Colossians 3:2 says, “Set your mind on the things which are above, not on the things which are on the earth.”

2. Prayer enables Christ to carry out His heavenly administration. The Lord’s instruction in Matthew 6:9-13 is not just a prayer to recite, but a pattern of prayer that carries out God’s administration, “Our Father who is in the heavens, Your name be sanctified; Your kingdom come; Your will be done, as in heaven, so also on earth…” When our minds are set on the things above, as we just mentioned, we’re able to respond to God’s heavenly interests and express them through our prayer.

3. Prayer ushers you into the Holy of Holies to receive grace. Another benefit of prayer is to touch the “throne of grace” to find grace for your timely help. Hebrews 4:16 says, “Let us therefore come forward with boldness to the throne of grace that we may receive mercy and find grace for timely help.”

4. Prayer charges your “spiritual battery” to live the Christian life. The Christian life is a tool or toy with a battery. Without being regularly charged, our “spiritual battery” will lack the power needed to carry out its intended functions.

5. Prayer brings you into fellowship with the Lord. Prayer is the contact of our spirit with God’s spirit. John 4:24 says, “God is Spirit and those who worship Him must worship in spirit…” It’s by such God-contacting prayer that we enter into fellowship with the Lord and become conscious of the fact that we are really one spirit with Him and that He is actually one spirit with us (1 Cor. 6:17).

6. Prayer renews you for the new man. Ephesians 4:23-24 says, “And that you be renewed in the spirit of your mind and put on the new man…” This means that whenever we contact the Lord as the Spirit with our spirit through prayer, this spirit spreads into our mind for our renewing.

7. Prayer lets the peace of Christ arbitrate in your heart. Colossians 3:15 says, “And let the peace of Christ arbitrate in your hearts, to which also you were called in one Body, and be thankful.”

8. Prayer allows the word of Christ to dwell in you richly. Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom…” But how? One of the greatest discoveries of my Christian life was learning how to receive God’s word in the Bible by means of prayer, that is, pray-reading it.

Now that you Know, have a blessed day!
