Prayer is extremely important in the life of the believer. Prayer should be the atmosphere that a child of God habitually lives in. Prayer is like breathing air—without prayer the believer dies a slow spiritual death of spiritual suffocation from emptiness and meaningless. When Paul was converted the Lord spoke to Ananias and told him to go to where Paul was located, and the Scripture simply says, “Behold he prayeth.” Acts 9:11.
Here are a few quotes on the importance of prayer.
“Worship and intercession must go together, the one is impossible without the other. Intercession means that we rouse ourselves up to get the mind of Christ about the one for whom we pray. Too often instead of worshipping God, we construct statements as to how prayer works. Are we worshipping or are we in dispute with God ‘I don't see how You are going to do it.' This is a sure sign that we are not worshipping.” – Oswald Chambers
“Our praying, however, needs to be pressed and pursued with an energy that never tires, a persistency which will not be denied, and a courage which never fails.” – E.M. Bounds
When I pray I use my imagination. I see myself sitting in heavenly places as the Apostle Paul tells us in Ehpesians 2:6. I trust that this brief message here on using imagination in prayer was helpful for you. God bless you as you enter into the holy of holies and intercede on behalf of yourself and others.
