Pray to Build
1. Pray, so that you don’t fall into temptation
Jesus on four occasions makes reference to praying in order not to fall into temptation.
Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
Watch ye and pray, lest ye enter into temptation. The spirit truly is ready, but the flesh is weak.
And when he was at the place, he said unto them, Pray that ye enter not into temptation.
And said unto them, Why sleep ye? rise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.
The only way to avoid temptation from enemies and to be able to discern right opportunities is through prayer
Now when the adversaries of Judah and Benjamin heard that the children of the captivity builded the temple unto the LORD God of Israel;
Then they came to Zerubbabel, and to the chief of the fathers, and said unto them, Let us build with you: for we seek your God, as ye do; and we do sacrifice unto him since the days of Esar-haddon king of Assur, which brought us up hither.
But Zerubbabel, and Jeshua, and the rest of the chief of the fathers of Israel, said unto them, Ye have nothing to do with us to build an house unto our God; but we ourselves together will build unto the LORD God of Israel, as king Cyrus the king of Persia hath commanded us.
Then the people of the land weakened the hands of the people of Judah, and troubled them in building,
And hired counsellors against them, to frustrate their purpose, all the days of Cyrus king of Persia, even until the reign of Darius king of Persia.
- People will come with seductive end elusive proposals to join you.
- They will seek to infiltrate your core just to destroy you and to slow you down from ever achieving your purpose
- They may seems nice, but with evil intentions
- They never leave, but they remain in there to destroy, just like the little foxes which destroy the vine
Prayer deals with foxes.
Pray ahead of time into the future
Jesus overcame the enemy’s temptation because He had prayed ahead of time
2. Pray To hear God
O God, thou art my God; early will I seek thee: my soul thirsteth for thee, my flesh longeth for thee in a dry and thirsty land, where no water is;
I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me.
3. Pray to make wisdom relevant
In your prayer time you find meaning to His written Word
4. Pray To establish prophecy
The fulfilling of the prophetic Word hangs on prayer. Daniel prayed, The children of Israel Prayed. Hanna prayed, Anna prayed and Simeon in the temple
