Before we enter into the presence of God, clean up a bit. We just can’t break in the door or sneak in the back window.
Sanctify by confessing the truth you know and believe. Make peace with your offenders with the expression of love and forgiveness. From the abundance of our hearts our mouth will speak. Our tongue is unruly and will say anything we have a mind to. Pray without interference from anyone except Jesus or the person you are in agreement with. Confess your faults one to another and be healed.
Come into His courts with praise and thanks giving. Everyone has something to be thankful for.
Respectfully make your request known by asking prayerfully with confidence expecting an answer. Don’t start with statements like God if you are real… Like it or not God wants the best for us. The worst things can and do happens in the best of condition for our request. Meaning God will always make way our deliverance or for granting our wish. He is aware of our needs even before we do. So be careful what you are wishing for. Think it through and consider the motive. In the law of sowing and reaping we receive in the manner that we are giving. We reap what we sow.
This is most important. We can fake the praise but the worship will prove our hearts to be true. So consider the motive for entering into the presence of God because you are in your most holy place. One way or another your heart will never be the same as before. Some will be healed and some gets worst before it gets better. Nevertheless we thank God for His best for us and there are more to benefit in the presence of God. Gairey
