Prayer

Choose a new font size and typeface

The Current Teaching Of The Watchtower Society:

The Society believes that prayer should be directed ONLY to Jehovah.

What the Bible Says about PRAYER:

1. Prayer should consist of...
Adoration Dan 4:34, 35
Confession 1Jo 1:9
Thanksgiving Phl 4:6
Supplication 1Ti 2:3
Intercession Jam 5:15

We pray to the Father in the name of the Lord Jesus through the ministry of the Holy Spirit. Since God is one God manifested in three persons, it is perfectly acceptable to pray to Jesus or to the Holy Spirit. There is no jealousy between the three persons of the Trinity.

2. Examples Of Prayer Directed To Jesus Christ:
Stephen prayed "Lord Jesus..." Act 7:59
Paul prayed "Lord.." Act 9:6
3. Instructions & Examples Concerning Prayer:
Prayer is asking and receiving 1Jo 5:14, 15
Prayer is seeking and finding Col 3:1; Jer 29:12
Prayer is knocking and opening Mat 17:14-21
It is not a sin to pray 1Sa 12:23
We are commanded to pray Mat 26:41
Prayer is the only way to get things from God Jam 4:2
There is joy in prayer Jhn 16:24
Prayer will deliver you out of all your troubles Psa 34:6
