If you haven’t received Christ as your personal Savior, our prayer should be to invite Him to come live inside you from head to toe. The blood of Jesus Christ cleanses us from every sin. When we come to Him, we should confess our sins, and humbly admit that He is our Savior, God, and Lord. This starts the communication with God.
I believe what hinders prayers is doubting, and unbelief. I believe that thorns, and thistles are planted in with the other things we hear. The doubts win at times, because we don’t know the Lord. Our Bible is there, but have we read it in the past three, months? You see the relationship is by faith, and daily. I am saved by grace. I walk by faith, getting to know Him by reading the Word, and finding those passages that help me, and give strength. The relationship with Jesus Christ starts when you receive Him by faith as your personal Savior. You ask Him to come into your life. Receive Him by faith, like you sit on a chair. You don’t question that it will hold you up.
The unbeliever has no clue, but it is by grace that he will come to Christ. People pray, and people come to know God. Jesus is God, and the Holy Spirit is God. Three in one is the Trinity. I believe you receive Jesus Christ by faith as your personal Savior who died for you on the cross, shedding His blood. He arose again, and he lingered to talk to the disciples before He went back to heaven to sit on His throne. He prays for us. If you will bind Satan, bind self, and loose the Presence of the Holy Spirit you will understand what I have just written. We come to Christ because it is God’s grace that allowed it to happen.
