TYPES OF PRAYERS


There are several great prayers by various great servants of God in the scriptures (Ephesians 6v18) but I have chosen that of Jabeez (1Chronicles 4:9-10) and the Lord’s Prayer (Matthew 6:9-13 and Luke 11:2) to examine side by side with the “Seven Fronts Attack Plan” You will notice that all the seven segments mentioned in the Glorious Church prayer pattern are mentioned in encapsulated forms in these other memorable prayers. The Glorious Church prayer pattern amplifies them and brings out their impact and relevance.

The Prayer of Jabez – “And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow. And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.” (1Chronicles 4:9-10)

The Lord’s Prayer – “After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13)
