Jesus is your advocate. Confess sins, admit your shortcomings and personal rebellion to God, ask the Holy Spirit of God for the power to repent from continuing faults, idols and deceptions. Pray for unity amongst the brethren. Most importantly the greatest gift, salvation as you are kept in victory by the power of God in Christ. Pray according to the will of the Father. Not merely that your circumstances would be changed but that He would give you the eyes of Jesus.
Pray that God would renew your mind in Christ and bring light to those in darkness. Pray alone every morning & with your family. This is how you exercise your faith and build strength in your relationship with your Heavenly Father. Discipline your meditations to be pleasing in the sight of God, meditating on His word day and night. Praying without ceasing is having a conscious awareness of God at all times and submitting to the leading of Christ. This is how you are led by the Spirit of God.
Prayer and communion with God is the foundation of your walk with God. A great prayer life leads to a life of praise and thanksgiving. Fundamental discipline: Poor prayer life = poor relationship with God. Vibrant prayer life = great walk with God. The abundant life comes from Jesus Christ. It is not temporal, for it is eternal. Receive the life of Jesus Christ and seek to know one thing, Jesus Christ and Him crucified. At that point His resurrection becomes realized.
Die daily the lust of the flesh, lust of the eyes and the pride of life as His resurrection becomes manifested in you. Trust God believing His Word as He empowers you to accomplish His will and purpose conforming you to the image of His Son by the power of His Spirit. Proverbs 28:13; I John 1:5-10; Matthew 6:6-10; Psalm 32; Psalm 51; Philippians 4:4; Ephesians 1:16-17; James 5:16.
