Praying That God Will Repair Your Prayer Altar
Praying That God Will Repair Your Prayer Altar
Today, we will be praying that God will repair our prayer altar. Many prayer altars have been destroyed by laziness, sleepiness and slumber. The aim of Satan right from the beginning is to separate man from God. The Devil’s aim is to tamper with the fellowship between man and God. What is Prayer? Prayer is the communication between man and God. Prayer is giving our attention to God in a two-way spiritual relationship where we talk to God and also listen to Him.
Jesus laid down great examples for us to follow when it comes to prayer. The subject of prayer was so important that the disciples of Jesus asked Him to teach them how to pray. They have seen Jesus performing many miracles prior to this time. Jesus drove out an impure spirit in Luke 4:31-37. He healed the mother-in-law of Peter who had a high fever in Luke 4: 38-39. Jesus also healed many who had various kinds of sickness and cast out demons from many people in Luke 4:40-41. The disciples knew that before Jesus came to perform all these miracles in the open, He had invested a lot of time in the secret. So, they went to Him and asked Him to teach them how to pray.
If the intensity of your prayer is not high as a Christians, you will bea prey in the hands of Satan. Jesus was a prayer warrior and He should be our perfect example in all things. He did not stop praying when He ascended to heaven. He is seated at the right hand of God interceding for us. Let us check the records of Jesus’ prayer lifestyle:

Special Bible Passage
One day Jesus was praying in a certain place. When he finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, just as John taught his disciples.” 2 He said to them, “When you pray, say:“‘Father, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come. 3 Give us each day our daily bread. 4 Forgive us our sins, for we also forgive everyone who sins against us. And lead us not into temptation.’”5 Then Jesus said to them, “Suppose you have a friend, and you go to him at midnight and say, ‘Friend, lend me three loaves of bread; 6 a friend of mine on a journey has come to me, and I have no food to offer him.’ 7 And suppose the one inside answers, ‘Don’t bother me. The door is already locked, and my children and I are in bed. I can’t get up and give you anything.’
8 I tell you, even though he will not get up and give you the bread because of friendship, yet because of your shameless audacity he will surely get up and give you as much as you need.9 “So I say to you: Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened. 11 “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? 12 Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion? 13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!”
