Words from Pastor Ken

Talking to the Father

When you pray, are you aware that the entire Godhead — the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit — is at work?

All true prayer begins when we claim our relationship with Him, the Father. And the only way we can truly call Him Father is to be born again into His forever family. The Bible says, “As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name” (John 1:12). We are all God’s creation, but we are not God’s children until we put our faith and trust in Him alone.

There is no access to the Father except through Jesus the Son, as the Bible plainly teaches, “There is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus” (1 Timothy 2:5). Access to the Father in prayer is not through a priest or a church, or through anything or anyone apart from Jesus Christ.

The force of our prayer is the Spirit. “The Spirit also helps in our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us . . . according to the will of God” (Romans 8:26–27). He is the force behind our prayers because He always prays according to God’s will.

Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, . . .we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him. 1 JOHN 5:14–15
