Excerpt From The Book
Praying always with all supplication in the Spirit
There are different kinds of prayer, just as there are different games in sports, each with its own set of rules.
Rules that apply to baseball do not apply to football. If you tried to use the same rules, you would get confused.
Similarly, there are rules or spiritual laws that govern certain kinds of prayer, but do not apply to other kinds of prayer.
We make a mistake by lumping together all kinds of prayer because if
we take the rules that govern one kind of prayer and try to apply them to another kind of prayer, we won’t see the desired results.
As we look in God’s Word to discover the kind of prayer that gets results, notice again our text, Ephesians 6:18. Moffatt’s translation reads,
“… praying … with all manner of prayer….” Still another translation says, “Praying with all kinds of prayer.
For example, some people think every prayer should end with the words, “If it be Thy will.” They say this is the way Jesus prayed.
But Jesus did not pray this way every time. When Jesus prayed at Lazarus’ tomb, He didn’t pray, “If it be Thy will.” He said, “. Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me” (John 11:41),
He then commanded Lazarus to come forth, and Lazarus came forth.
This prayer was one to change circumstances. When you pray to receive something or to change circumstances, never pray “if.”
If you do, you’re using the wrong rule and it won’t work.
The only kind of prayer in which Jesus included an “if” was a prayer of consecration and dedication.
