I pray that your hearts be flooded with light

I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.

Ephesians 1:18 NLT

Prayer is so vital in ministry.  It is through faithful intercession that the hearts of God’s people are open.  Trying to do ministry without bathing it in prayer is like enter a war without the proper weaponry.  Prayer makes available the power of the Holy Spirit.  But the key is consistent intercession on a daily basis that aligns with the will of God.

Some will ask how do I pray according to God’s will.  The key is becoming a student of God’s word.  God’s heart is revealed in His word.  If we desire to know the heart and mind of God we must draw near daily and spend time studying and meditating upon God’s word.  As we do this our hearts and minds will align with His and the things we are led to pray by the Holy Spirit will align with the will of God.  Become a diligent student of God’s word.
