The Prayer That Jesus Taught

Matthew 6:32~33 For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

God sent Christ and saved you from all the powers of darkness(Passover). Your background is God’s Kingdom, and God sends His angels wherever you go to establish His Kingdom(Ingathering). Between the Passover and Ingathering, the Holy Spirit is with you and works in power(Pentecost). Once you realize this, you will come to understand how important prayer is. Then, prayer begins to take place naturally. Now, what is the prayer that Jesus taught?

1. The True Prayer of Knowing the Covenant of Pentecost
Once you know the covenant of Pentecost, true prayer begins. God already knows your needs. That is why Jesus told you to not seek what the Gentiles do, but seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness. This is the start of Pentecost, or the filling of the Holy Spirit. If the power of the Holy Spirit comes upon you, then people’s words or acknowledgement no longer becomes important.

2. Experiencing the Power of the True Covenant of Pentecost
Remnants will be fine wherever they are as long as they have the mystery of the covenant of Pentecost. Jesus promised the covenant of Pentecost and fulfilled it. The covenant of God's Kingdom and the Holy Spirit that Jesus had was explained for forty days on the Mt. of Olives and was fulfilled in Mark's upper room. This answer was also the fulfillment of the covenant given to the Israelites in the wilderness after the Exodus.

3. The Continuation of the Works of the Filling of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost
If you are within the continuing works of the filling of the Holy Spirit on Pentecost, you can change whatever world you are in. The power of Pentecost that came upon Mark's upper room was also relayed to Paul. Paul, while praying to receive the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the field, healed a person suffering from illness that a doctor could never heal(Acts 13:1~12). He healed a young female servant who was demon-possessed and told fortunes(Acts 16:16~18). He also had the answer of saving Tyrannus and the entire region(Acts 19:8~10). Finally, he saw the future of saving Rome(Acts 19:21).

[Prayer of the Evangelist] Dear God, help me to know the covenant of Pentecost, experience its power each day, and continue in the works of the Holy Spirit.
