We need discipline ourselves. For our flesh Hates praying, reading bible, seeking God, but rather loves the worldly pleasures, sleep, resting, eating, playing. So don't listen to others who says this is "religious" or "legalism"
In order to get a SOLDIER in shape, Harsh discipline is necessary even in the world. To be a student Receiving "A"s in class one must be disciplined to do homework on his own, listening to the teacher's instructions. Bible speaks same discipline for one self.
Proverbs 15:10 Harsh discipline is for him who forsakes the way, And he who hates correction will die.
1 Corinthians 9:27 But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified
Hebrews 12:7 If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? 8 But if you are without chastening, of which all have become partakers, then you are illegitimate and not sons. 9 Furthermore, we have had human fathers who corrected us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much more readily be in subjection to the Father of spirits and live? 10 For they indeed for a few days chastened us as seemed best to them, but He for our profit, that we may be partakers of His holiness. 11 Now no chastening seems to be joyful for the present, but painful; nevertheless, afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Ephesians 5:18 "And do not be drunk with wine, in which is dissipation; but be filled with the Spirit"
Praying, Reading Bible, Fasting, praising God, Seeking God. These COMBINED will get your spirit filled with HOLY SPIRIT.
SO HOW TO PRAY everyday Like Jesus or Daniel?
#1. Get a clock and time yourself. Dedicate that time ONLY to pray and seek God. (1 hour at least I would say)
#2. Turn off every distraction from enemy- CELLPHONES (devil will fight you with others calling you.) , Computer, every electronics. Get away from people if possible (devil again will use them to lure you out. Trust me it happens to me alot!)
#3 In your closet or small secluded room, take a BIBLE with you.( I prefer NKJV, or NLT i don't trust NIV for it is owned by guy who also owns satan bible and porn sites. please don't argue about this but search the web ok?)
#4 Pray aloud, with your mouth open! your thoughts will distract you. You can humble yourself by kneeling down and face to the ground as Daniel did, declaring to God that you cannot do anything without His grace and that anything you can do is By His grace!
#5 Ask Holy Spirit to direct your prayer! Try to be lead by Him! Ask and Talk to Him! If you get stuck in words, ASK HOLY SPIRIT " What should I pray about?"
#6 Thank God, worship God, read Bible in your mouth and in your heart! do things by Holy Spirit!
#7 Time yourself and DON'T MOVE Until that hour in STRONG DEDICATION!!!, unless you have to go to bathroom or the house catches on fire or something ok?"
For me I pray alot in tongues of the Holy Spirit. But if you don't have it don't panic. Prayer is still Prayer to God! you fight with what You got! If you want these things fast and pray for it!!
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hostsof wickedness in the heavenly places. 13 Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
Galatians 5:16" I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish. 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law."
Be filled with Holy Spirit! Praying is not out of law but out of LIFE! do it with passion! if you don't have passion, PRAY FOR PASSION OF PRAYING!
