Praying In Partnership With God

Alignment, consecration and bowing the knee are foundational to moving mountains prayers.

From Series: "Moving Mountains"

If you are interested in prayer at all, you want prayer that works. That is the kind of prayer at the center of this series. When we discover that prayer is not just asking God to do something — prayer is partnership with God — new possibilities open before us. We are God’s sons and daughters, given the authority of Jesus Christ; we have a greater role in prayer than we ever thought. Greater power, too. Join us for a 5 week lesson in moving mountains.

Prayer Exercise

Week of September 26
From the Discussion Guide page 55

What areas of your life need realignment with God’s kingdom? List some things in your world that you now see you would like to consecrate and bring under the rule of Jesus. Now take the things you have listed above and pray through each one slowly and carefully, consecrating it to Jesus Christ and his kingdom! If you are consecrating your home/apartment/bedroom, use the prayer I included in the chapter (see pages 105-106); it also helps to pray the prayer while you are in that particular space. The same holds true for your work- if you can (perhaps quietly), do the act of consecration in your office/cubicle/space. If it is your sexuality you want to consecrate, use the longer prayer offered in the back of the book (see pages 239- 243); it will prove much more effective. For all other things, you can use the prayer of consecration for a home and adapt it to whatever it is you are consecrating.

We are going to “take things up a notch.” We have before us a new way of praying — the Prayer of Intervention. Practice this on your current “prayer projects,” the ones you wrote down in session one. (And if by now those projects have been answered or the event has passed, then take time to write down a few new ones!) In fact, you can even take the prayer John wrote out in the chapter (pgs 84-86)—the one illustrating what the saints might have been praying the night Peter was rescued—and use it yourself. Put the name of the person or the issue you are praying for in place of Peter’s name. It’s not a perfect fit, but God can sort that out; it will certainly give you a guideline by which to practice “intervening” prayer.

Pick a prayer project that you can begin to practice on. Like anything else in life – music, driving, sports, love—we learn as we practice, and as we practice we get better. So, pick something that you want to see changed through the power of prayer, and begin to make it a daily practice to pray into it, applying the things you are learning in this book and video series.

Caution: Do not pick something massive for this “exercise.” What I mean is, some prayer projects are harder than others and very difficult projects would fall into the realm of things like, “my husband’s salvation,” or “healing my friend of breast cancer”, or “ending global terrorism.” Those are all very worthy things to pray about , but things like this also fall into the category of “grad school prayer,” prayer that is probably going to take some time and effort.

For this exercise, pick something small like that presentation you need to make at school or work next week, or the conversation you want to have with your friend on a touchy subject. Things that fall within the realm of, “I can pray about that every day, and if I do I will probably see some results in the near future.”

Write down one, two or three prayer “projects” here. Also write out your prayer for each as well. We’ll check in next time to see how things are going.
