How to Reach God With Prayer


Written by: Jeff Ordonez


Are you left to guess what the safest and most profitable actions to take in life are?

Would you like to see and feel God direct you in the most beneficial ways for yourself and those you love?

This article is nothing like you've ever read because it shows how you are using a small part of your God-given abilities to live empowered in God's knowledge.

Deep within your mind resides the ability to receive instruction directly from the Creator which can carry you with a lifetime of grace and spiritual power.

Performing life's duties with God's grace and power is what makes dreams come true for you and everyone around you. It's how you become an influence for good and how to discover a world of new possibility and potential.



You can open the doors of the new potential immediately after you take my advice. The best thing about the advice I'm sharing with you is that there's no monetary price to pay, none. The only cost involved is a few minutes of effort each day executing a small instruction found in the Bible.

After reading the following instruction and implementing its strategy, you will be the sole judge of whether or not what I reveal to you is worth a lifetime of love and devotion toward God.

The technique I'm showing you is not how to do some work, no. Instruction like that although valuable promises to deliver results based on your performance.

If you decide to follow what I teach you'll enjoy a lifetime of unlimited potential under the guidance of your creator - God. In my opinion, these are some the most valuable words you'll ever read. I feel this way because a mind illuminated by God can deliver spectacular results in any area and have seen God's power at work for myself.

You Have The Power

We all know that scientists and psychologists declare that we only use a small portion of our brain. Only occasionally we learn of an individual who soars beyond what seems humanly possible.

Whether in finance, politics, business, spiritual endeavors, or charitable causes it's by the use of our full power that people seem to accomplish the impossible, and that power comes from God.

You can now join the ranks of those who are spiritually touched by God.

The ability to be spiritually touched by God with power and inspiration is under your complete control and it resides in your will to influence your subconscious with prayer.

Your subconscious is the area where you and God meet. It's the area where unlimited potential is revealed and it's known to you by a conscious process.

Scientists refer to the subconscious as the root of miracles. In states of hypnosis, people can do almost anything.

Jesus once declared that if you believe, truly believe, anything is possible for you. Science is now proving that when the subconscious and conscious minds align in belief, wonders are possible.

It appears that after 2000 years Jesus is still leading the way in science and thought.

Here's the only secret you need to know about opening your subconscious to God with inspired visions of unlimited possibilities.

The simple instruction is found in Job 33:14-16. Here it is:

For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men. While slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men and seals their instruction.  (NKJV)

Let me translate.

God sends invisible waves of power and instruction to all people, but very few perceive the instruction from the heavenly realms. Many are not able to receive the instruction for spiritual digestion because the ears of perception are closed.

The verse instructs us that our ordinary conscious mind receives and digests spiritual information from God during sleep. How many times have you read in both the New and Old Testament of how during a state of slumber or sleep people find themselves in the presence of God? It might have even happened to you!

The reason why we can process spiritual information from God during a relaxed state, like sleep, is because the brain produces broader frequencies.

Broader frequencies, compared to the agitated signals of stress allows greater blood flow through our neural networks which activates areas of the brain for greater receptivity.

This is what the scripture means when it says that God opens the ears of perception during sleep. The process is programmed into our genetics by God. Once again, scientists find themselves in the awkward position of acknowledging Biblical wisdom.

The thing you really need to know about experiencing God's vast power is that how you cultivate your mind before sleep will either limit your exposure to God's miraculous signals or increase it.

This bit of timeless wisdom comes to us in many ways through the Bible but none is so clear than from the author of the Book of Psalms, David.

In Psalm 63:6, David declares, "When I remember you upon my bed and meditate on You in the watches of the night."

In this verse and many others, David, one of the most inspired authors of the Bible, reveals a habit of mental rehearsal before sleep. The nightly mental rehearsals brought Him so close to God that it propelled him to write over 100 Psalms enlightening professionals in all fields over millennia.

What we're learning is that how we influence our mind before sleep can either help or hinder our ability to receive from God.

If we ponder on the cares and worries of life there's a good chance your subconscious will get locked in a negative cycle creating a negative biochemical effect overnight.

This means that the natural neurological process of nighttime open perception is altered by your thoughts. This may also cause disturbances in restful sleep.

Contrast that with the sweet inspiring slumber David experiences after reflecting on God.

Going through the Bible on a daily basis to extract Bible verses to ponder before falling asleep may not fit most schedules.

I've discovered that when the effort to a proposed task is cumbersome, no matter how great the promise is, the action may become reduced to nothing.

That's where the genius of Jesus comes in.

The best mental pattern to establish before sleep goes like this.

1. Glorify God.
2. Ask God to deliver His providential power to you. (This sets up your conscious and subconscious to receive from God)
3. Ask for forgiveness, forgive others.
4. Ask for guidance and help.

By consistently establishing this mental pattern before falling asleep you ensure that your mind exalts God, puts your brain in a receptive mode, clears your mind with forgiveness, and requests intervention from God.

Fortunately, the love of God shines through in the Gospels. In the New Testament, Jesus gives us a simple, but powerful, prayer to recite.

"Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name.
Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our debts (or trespasses), as we forgive our debtors.
And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from the evil one."

This prayer is commonly known as the Lord's prayer and it contains words that grab God's attention.

Could you resist someone who speaks kindly of you, who sincerely asks for your help and who shows in word and deed the humble heart of forgiveness? A person like that would probably merit you highest favor. What if they were your son or daughter?

Every person has some dream or ambition he or she entertains. I believe the practice of repeating the Lord's prayer before you fall asleep either verbally or mentally has a greater effect on your mind and life than an idle stream or worrisome thought.

Try it for yourself. Before falling asleep recite The Lord's Prayer as many times as possible. But remember this, repetition is the key to setting up a favorable mental atmosphere open to God's leadership.

I've noticed this technique appeals to people not solely attracted to material success but to thoughtful men and women who want to operate under God's authority.

This technique I believe is the way of making excellent strides in the psychology that drives your actions and in your desire to have more influence from God.

It's a simple and easy way of deeply establishing neurological connections with some of the most important Biblical concepts, the kind that shines in front of God.

But you might be thinking about this often misquoted biblical text.

"And when you pray, do not use vain repetitions as the heathen do. For they think that they will be heard for their many words."  Matthew 6:7

I often reply to that verse with this one.

"Pray without ceasing" 1 Thessalonians 5:17

At first, we may see a conflicting message but the truth is as obvious as the sun on a clear day.

In Matthew 6:7 Jesus says that people should not pray with vain repetitions.

So the question now becomes do you pray with vain words, or do you pray with love and good intention?

The most important aspect of prayer is the quality of your inner being. If you want to get close to God and desire to be a force for good then it doesn't matter if you pray once or a million times.

God looks at the heart that drives prayer.

The Apostle Paul, however, recommends praying repeatedly and constantly, which is affirmed by science to have positive effects on the chemistry of your brain.

With this article, I've presented to you how some people make tremendous progress in life. It ties together scattered biblical thought to show you why it's important to pay attention to your bedtime thoughts and how to set up a pattern helpful in your advancement with God.

Now you have a clear connected picture of how you can achieve better progress with God. Your mind and life can change in every way. Once you pick up the nightly habit of meditative prayer a new world will open.

When you go to bed and you're ready to sleep, close your eyes and start mentally or verbally reciting the Lord's prayer.  If for any reason your mind strays, bring it back to the words of your recital.

Focus on the words until they become pictures in your mind and you'll calmly drift to sleep. Then let God do the rest.

It's of utmost importance that you love and praise God first thing in the morning. Having negative thoughts about God or life because you think nothing's change is best not explored.

I've learned that change often happens without our knowledge. How many times has this happened to you? You're in the middle of an activity and suddenly an idea, or thought, to a problem or situation pops into your mind. Later you find that the idea that came to you provided you with the solution you needed, or that it led to helpful options.

That's the result of letting your mind spend time with God at night and it's something to be thankful for in the morning.

If you feel that this article has helped you in any way I ask that you please leave a comment with valuable feedback. I read and learn from virtually all comments. Your input is valuable to me, thank you.

See you in the Kingdom,
Jeff
