Truth and Consequences series
The Truth Leads and Teaches
The consequence of our sins (iniquities) separate us from God and all His benefits. RC Sproul would convince us with his book "Does Prayer Change Things" that the purpose of prayer is to glorify God. With that being said, the focus of our prayer becomes ineffective when we pray for things that do not glorify the Kingdom of God. In fact the paradigm shift is traumatic in most instances because there is no self interest in the purpose of petition.
Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.
But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear.
Revealer/Spirit of Truth: (John 14:17; 16:13; 1 Corinthians 2:12-16); for the Truth that leads us we off our sacrifice of thanksgiving. We come in a spirit of oneness with the union of the Holy Spirit for the Rhema Word which lights our way to salvation and we give You the praise. We decree and declare blessings upon those who wait on the Lord, so that the renewing of their strength would glorify Your Holy Name. Now, for the sake of the Kingdom, we petition, with an anointing in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
