never feel unworthy to pray
Because of erroneous teachings given by ministers, many Christians are finding it very difficult to go before God in prayer due to their day to day short comings.
Ministers would make praying sound so difficult that members would feel inferior and unworthy to go before God. Their concept is, you are not qualified enough to be in a prayer circle or be a prayer warrior.
If you fall into fornicate, lie, cheat or do anything bad, they say that your prayer will be rejected by heaven.
This is a dangerous teaching that brings the spirit of self condemnation. It is a lie from the pit of hell. Those who fall into error are the ones who need to pray for transformation, reformation, mercy and grace.
Luke 18:10 Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
Luke 18:11 The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
Luke 18:12 I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.
Luke 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.
Luke 18:14 I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Hebrews 4:14, "Seeing then that we have a great high priest, that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold fast our profession.
Hebrew 4:15, "For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin."
Hebrew 4:16, "Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need."
According to Hebrew, because of who Christ is "The Sacrifice" and we are His sons and daughter, Roman 8:15-17, and the sheep of His pasture,Psalms 100:3, we have a right to pray in any condition. Though sin hinders our prayer, yet it does not disqualify us from our right to approach before our Heavenly Father in prayer.
Romans 8:15 says, "For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
Vs.16, "The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:
Vs.17, "And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ;"
