The Prayer of God & the Ministry of Prayer The Christian Faith Podcast

    • Christianity

And it came to be in those days that He went out to the mountain to pray, and He spent the whole night in the prayer of God.— Luke 6:12, SV
We need a greatly uplifted view of prayer in these days, as we see the poor condition of the church and the desperate situation of this country as a whole.
To pray “the prayer of God” means that we do not simply ask God for so many things, or to help us with various aspects of our life. Rather, in such prayer we stand with God for His will in heaven to be done on the earth. As Watchman Nee states in his book, The Prayer Ministry of the Church:
“In all matters related to Him, God will not act until he obtains the cooperation of the will on earth….The church’s ministry includes bringing down to earth the will that is in heaven [Matt. 6:9-10]. But exactly how does the church bring this about? It is by praying on the earth….Prayer as work or ministry means that we stand on God’s side, desiring what He desires.”
