Impacting Cities & Communities thru Prayer
A Community of Prayer Champions, Praying Churches, Prayed-for Communities
As Prayer Warriors, we understand how important prayer is to our survival in this world. God has called us to a mighty task. As Prayer Warriors called by God, we must see our need for spiritual cleansing. It is important for us to understand that as Prayer Warriors we can do nothing apart from God Almighty. He is our SOURCE.
Spiritual cleansing is coming before the Lord Jesus Christ and admitting that we fall short of His Holy Word and that we need Him to cleanse us from within. A spiritual change on the inside will bring out a change on the outside. We all fall short of the glory of God. God has said in His word, "there is not one righteousness, no not one". We are righteousness because of the Lord Jesus Christ. Without Him there would be no righteousness.
When I think of spiritual cleansing, I meditate on Psalm 51. Psalm 51 is simply a definition of "Repentance". We must come fefore God and admit our sinfulness. We must admit that we need Him to cleanse us of all unrighteousness.
David ask God to "create in him a clean heart and to renew a right spirit in him". We must do the same. As prayer warriors, we cannot do the work that God has called us to do without understanding our need for spiritual cleansing within our own lives. Praying for others take dedication, but it also takes admitting that we are no different from our brothers and sisters in whom we lift up in prayer. We need God to forgive us of our trespasses and to cleanse us of all unrighteousness. It means admitting that without Jesus and His ability to cleanse us within our prayers will not be heard. God is looking for us to be HOLY and perfect before Him.
As Prayer Warriors understand the importance of repentance and confession before God as David understood. We cannot come before a Holy God wearing dirty garments. Use Psalm 51 has a pattern to come before God and admit that we are guilty of sin. Let us be right before God Almighty before we offer prayers to God on the behalf of others. We want our prayers to be heard and answered by God.
I have a question for all the Prayer Warriors. Are you in need of Spiritual Cleansing? Your answer should be "YES". We are all in need for God to transform us from within and to forgive us of all our transgressions. Therefore, go to your Father and admit that you have fallen short of His glory and you are in need of cleansing from within.
Remember, there is POWER IN PRAYER! Others are depending on us when we unite in prayer with them.
