Prayer Meeting Ministry Excerpt

God’s intention is to accomplish His own will through the believers’ prayer. This does not mean that believers should not ask God to fulfill their needs. It only means that believers should first understand the meaning and principle of prayer. Every time believers have a lack, they should first ask whether or not such a lack will affect God. Is it God who ordains that they have such a lack? Or is it God’s will that they be supplied? Only after one has seen that it is God’s will that his needs be met, should he pray for God to accomplish His will (with regards to meeting his need). Only after one has understood God’s will, should he pray for the will of God which he has understood and ask that God’s will be accomplished. The question now is not whether or not you have a lack or that you need to be supplied. The question now is whether or not God’s will is accomplished. Although your prayer may be the same as before, your attention is turned to the accomplishment of God’s will in such matters and not to the fulfilling of your own needs.

Here lies the failure of many. Believers think that their own needs are the priority. Even after they have understood that God’s will is to supply their need, they still pray tenaciously for their own needs. We should never pray for our own needs. There is only one legitimate prayer in the whole universe—only one prayer that pleases God—the prayer that asks for the accomplishment of His will. Our needs must be lost in God’s will. Whenever we see God’s will concerning our need, we have to drop our need immediately to seek after the accomplishment of God’s will. A direct prayer for the fulfilling of needs (whatever kind of need it may be) is never the noblest prayer. All prayers for personal needs should only be made indirectly while one is seeking for the accomplishment of God’s will. This is the secret to prayer, and this is the secret to victory in prayer.

God’s goal is that we be filled with His will to such an extent that we forget our own interest. God wants us to work together with Him to accomplish His will. The way to work together with Him is to pray. For this reason He wants us to abide in Him to learn His will in various matters and then ask according to His will.
