Matthew 6: 6 (NKJV) But you, when you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly. “secret” – that’s His realm! “openly” – that’s our realm! The “bridge”: prayer!

Prayer and Intercession needs faith and expectation: Mark 6: 3 -5 (NIV) 3 Isn't this the carpenter? Isn't this Mary's son and the brother of James, Joseph, Judas and Simon? Aren't his sisters here with us? " And they took offense at him. 4 Jesus said to them, "Only in his hometown, among his relatives and in his own house is a prophet without honor. " 5 He could not do any miracles there, except lay his hands on a few sick
Mark 6: 3 -5 (MSG) 3 But in the next breath they were cutting him down: "He's just a carpenter—Mary's boy. We've known him since he was a kid.

And they never got any further. 4 Jesus told them, "A prophet has little honor in his hometown, among his relatives, on the streets he played in as a child. " 5 Jesus wasn't able to do much of anything
Prayer and intercession must be fervent: James 5: 16 (NKJV) The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. 2 Kings 20: 1 -5 (MSG) 1 Some time later Hezekiah became deathly sick.

3 Remember, O God, who I am, what I've done! I've lived an honest life before you, My heart's been true and steady, I've lived to please you; lived for your approval. And then the tears flowed. Hezekiah wept. 4 Isaiah, leaving, was not halfway across the courtyard when the word of God stopped him: 5 "Go back and tell Hezekiah, prince of my people, 'God's word, Hezekiah! From the God of your ancestor David: I've listened to your prayer and I've observed your tears. I'm
Prayer and Intercession has a cost: 2 Samuel 24: 21 -25 (NIV) 21 Araunah said, "Why has my lord the king come to his servant? " "To buy your threshing floor, " David answered, "so I can build an altar to the Lord, that the plague on the people may be stopped. “ 22 Araunah said to David, "Let my lord the king take whatever pleases him and offer it up. Here are oxen for the burnt
offering, and here are threshing sledges and ox yokes for the wood. 23 O king, Araunah gives all this to the king. " Araunah also said to him, "May the Lord your God accept you. " 24 But the king replied to Araunah, "No, I insist on paying you for it. I will not sacrifice to the Lord my God burnt offerings that cost me nothing. " So David bought the threshing floor and the oxen and paid fifty shekels of silver for them. 25 David built an altar to the
Lord there and sacrificed burnt offerings and fellowship offerings. Then the Lord answered prayer in behalf of the land, and the plague on Israel was stopped.

8 I say to you, though he will not rise and give to him because he is his friend, yet because of his persistence he will rise and give him as many as he needs. 9 "So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. 10 For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
