THE MINISTRY OF PRAYER AND THE WORD By Apostle Joshua Selman
The pillars on which the life of every believer rest are pillars of the word and prayers. It is not possible to understand the dimensions of prayers without proper knowledge of the word of God. You can not understand the mysteries that are in the Holy Scriptures and how to accurately utilize them without praying for divine illumination. Many people thought they can live a complete Christian life only by praying without giving themselves to deep knowledge of the word. It is disheartening that these set of people devote great part of their lives to prayers and people know them with prayers but because they do not have accurate knowledge of what the word of God says concerning thier desires and prayer points, they only pray amiss without result. On the hand are the set of believers who assume that prayers are not as mandatory as becoming one’s daily habit, they assume God knows what they need so there is no need asking God again. Both the ministry of words and prayers are very important to the life of believer, therefore, it is not good to be devoted to one at the expense of the other. You must study to know what to pray for, how to pray and when to pray and also, pray to know how to study and understand the mysteries in the words of God. This is a powerful teaching that will give you a balanced spiritual life. You will blessed by it.
