A Family member asked me for the following; so I am also sharing here.
While there are many ways to "Pray", I would at this time look at a couple of them.
(1) One on One With our Creator;
Gen 2: 15, 16... And the Lord YHWH God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress it and to keep it. And the Lord YHWH God gave charge to the man, saying ....
Gen 3: 8,,,9,,, And they heard the voice of the Lord YHWH God walking in the garden in the cool of the day. And the Lord YHWH God called unto Adam, and said unto him, Where [art] thou? And he (Adam) said, I heard thy voice in the garden ....
In the very first book of the Bible we see that our Creator created man to have fellowship and to talk with him.
Gen 6: 8 But Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord YHWH.
13, 14 And God said unto Noah, ... ... ... ... .... Make thee an ark, ... ... ...
18 But with thee will I establish My Covenant; and thou shalt come into The Ark, thou, and thy sons, and thy wife.
Again in the first book of the Bible we see Noah receiving direction from our Creator; and Noah follows those directions which lead to man kind being "saved" "YAHShua'ed" through Noah's actions.
Gen 12: 1 Now the Lord YHWH had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will Bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee:and in thee shall all families of the earth be Blessed. So Abram departed, as the Lord YHWH had spoken unto him;
Another leader gets direction from our Creator YHWH and follows His communications.
Exodus 3: 2-4 And the angel of the Lord YHWH appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush:and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush [was] not consumed. And Moses said, I will now turn aside, and see this great sight, why the bush is not burnt. And when the Lord YHWH saw that he turned aside to see, God called unto him out of the midst of the bush, and said, Moses, Moses. And he (Moses) said, Here [am] I.
Moses first encounter "talking" with our Creator.
Prayer is one of our modes to "talk with" our Creator and Savior.
The way I have seen it work is;
Since we are somewhat apart from our Creator; He has His Spirit (His Rhuach) come to us and somewhat interest us in seeking "more".
There is another verse in the Bible,
Romans 8: 26 *Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:for we know not what we should pray for as we ought:but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
So even if we don't know exactly what or how to pray, it is ok, pray anyways, and The Spirit of YHWH will bring forth the prayer for us.
Also, since there has been a separation between us and The Father Creator, The Father has provided us with a way to reconciliation; and that being through The Son. And The Spirit Will lead us there.
Rom 8: 27 And He that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of The Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to [the will of] God.
The Son "YAHShua" (Jesus) has taught us some things to open our prayer with;
Our Father -Abba- the word "our" included me! Meaning that I can say, "My Father" "My Creator" "My Authority and Power". Who is available everywhere.
Set apart and Fully Pure Is Your Name. Even if we don't know His Name or what it means, The Spirit will lift It at this time.
Thy Kingdom- He Is- "You Are"- The King, The Authority, The Author of All Creation. Let this Kingship come unto me; that I may operate in it.
Feed me your Truth that I may be nourished in it.
Forgive me for my shortfalls
Give me the power to forgive others for their shortfalls, and that I do so.
And let me not be tested by the tempter,
But Deliver me from ALL evil.
By Your Kingship and by Your Power and Your Glory forever and forever Amen.
Now we can go about our conversation with our Creator, through His Spirit, and be open and free with Him. (This is where it is Real).
Mat 26: 36-39 Then cometh YAHShua with them unto a place called Gethsemane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray yonder. ... ... ... ... ... tarry ye here, and watch with me. And He went a little further, and fell on His face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, ... ... ...
... ... ... ... ... This is the first type of prayer, when we pray from our own Heart to our Creator.
(2) The second type of prayer was actually mentioned in the verses from Romans 8: 26&27.
Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities:for we know not what we should pray for as we ought:but the Spirit itself maketh "INTERCESSION" for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what [is] the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh "INTERCESSION" for the saints according to [the will of] God.
This type of prayer is what is called "Intercessory Prayer". This is when the person who is in need of prayer is some how not capable of proclaiming that prayer fully. In the Scripture in the book of Romans we see The Spirit Interceding for us. But we also intercede for each other.
Especially for my upcoming surgery on 25 March 2016. I will be under anesthesia and don't really know how that works with prayer, but other people can pray for me, that is, in my place, because I may be weak and not capable. That is when you Pray for me (In my place), as if you are me praying! Got it?
Luke 18: 1 And he spake a parable unto them [to this end], that men ought always to pray, and not to faint;
Luke 21: 36 Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
2 Thessalonia 1: 11&12 Wherefore also "WE PRAY ALWAYS FOR YOU" , that our God would count you worthy of [this] calling, and fulfil all the good pleasure of [His] goodness, and the work of Faith with Power: That the name of our Lord YAHShua Ha Messiach may be Glorified In you, and ye In Him, according to The Grace of our Eloheim and Adoni YAHShua Ha Messiach.
