Christian Songs About Prayer | 83 The Effect of True Prayer

Prayer is a means by which we call upon God, it is the path for establishing a normal relationship with God and, moreover, it is something we must do every day.

God’s words say: “After God created mankind and gave them spirits, He enjoined them that if they didn’t call out to God, then they would not be able to connect with His Spirit and thus the ‘satellite television’ from heaven would not be received on earth. When God is no longer in people’s spirits there is an empty seat left open for other things, and that’s how Satan seizes the opportunity to get in. When people contact God with their hearts, Satan immediately goes into a panic and rushes to escape. Through mankind’s cries God gives them what they need, but He does not ‘reside’ within them at first. He just constantly gives them aid because of their cries and people gain hardiness from that internal strength so that Satan dare not come here to ‘play’ at its will. This way, if people constantly connect with God’s Spirit, Satan dare not come to disrupt.”

From God’s words, we can see that when God created mankind, He gave them the breath of life and thus they were possessed of both heart and spirit. When we pray to God with our hearts, we will be able to connect with God’s Spirit and gain His guidance. If we often call out to God and pray to Him genuinely, speaking the words in our hearts to God and telling Him our difficulties, weakness or things that we don’t thoroughly understand, the Holy Spirit will enlighten, illuminate and lead us, and give us faith and strength. When our relationship with God becomes normal, then we will not feel that practicing God’s words is difficult, Satan will not dare to harm us, and our lives will be filled with peace and joy. Such is the effect of prayer. But if we don’t pray, we will have no connection with God, and then we will be apt to shun Him and live in various difficulties in the flesh. Without God’s guidance, we will easily fall into Satan’s temptations and trap, and have nowhere to turn. In this way, Satan will occupy our hearts at any time, and we will have no way to obtain the work of the Holy Spirit and see God’s deeds.
