DNA, the Effective Prayer

Scriptures: John 17:1-17

 

Keys:  "You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit ?fruit that will last. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in my name."(Jn.15:16)

 

"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be given you."(John 15:7)

 

Preface:  There was a new opening store of a super market.  And there was an old super market lost some customers of course.  But the owner of the old store prayed for that new owner to run the business well. Later, that new market has gotten a lot of customers, so that old store must close, because there was no any customer. God blesses the owner of old store.

 

The new owner of that market called him up to be a manager of that store, now; this old owner earned his manager fee which is better than before when he ran the store. Praise God! That is the effective prayer. God helps us when we start to pray for others.

 

DNA is an Effective Prayer:

1.  Follow the DNA process, by reading and listening the words of God that show vision, the vision is a plan from the Supreme Being, Ruler. 

 

We must always pray correctly from knowing and believing the teachings of Christ. Christ will do whatever you ask in His name; Jesus Christ said, "You may ask me for anything in my name, and I will do it.? (John 14:13, 14:15:7)This is the confidence we have to have in approaching God that if we ask anything according to his Will, He hears us. (1 John 5:14) for example, When Jesus Christ asked the will of Father, he said, "Father, if you are willing, take this cup from me; yet not my will, but yours be done.(Luke 22:42.)"
 He means you are asking whatever you want also is what the Lord wants. 

 

How can we know what is that the Lord want? You need work through DNA, by listening to the words of our Lord, reading Bible can listen to His Words; then you can adjust yourself, correcting yourself and become a clean person.

 

 

2.      Jesus had chosen his disciples for a purpose, the purpose is bearing fruit:    Jesus said that he cuts off every branch in him that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruits, he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.  This is a reference to judgment. Because a branch out of contact with the vine is lifeless, so the importance of obedience and love must go together (John 14:15, 21, 23; 1 Jn. 2:5; 5:2-3).

 

Jesus said, If you love me, you will obey what I command ( Jn. 14:15).  Whoever has my commands and obeys them, he is the one who loves me. He who loves me will be loved by my Father (Jn. 14:21), If anyone loves me, he will obey my teaching.  My Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him (Jn.14:23).   But if anyone obeys his word, Gods love [Or word, love for

God] is truly made complete in him. This is how we know we are in him: (1Jn. 2:5)

 

3.      How to bear the fruit? The effective process is DNA:

?SPAN style="FONT: 7pt 'Times New Roman'">       D is the DIVINE TRUTH.  You read the Bible daily for incarnation; hear the voice of God for directions and obedience. Then you will experience that you are talking to the Supreme Being, Ruler.  How can you get his direction, how to listen?

?SPAN style="FONT: 7pt 'Times New Roman'">       Ways to hear Him:

o       Be quite: You set a specific time and place/ Sitting comfortably. / Making a deep breath and smiling. / Making a Short prayer/ than you focus on Jesus.

o       In touch with God by heart. / Practicing His presence/ Searching His Words and presence/ Writing your thoughts. /Confessing your sins, wrong doing or any mistaking (1Jn.1:9). /Prayer, He will forgive your sins...

?SPAN style="FONT: 7pt 'Times New Roman'">      N is the Nurturing Relationship:  It is the confession and ministry prayer time

o       Confessing sins or mistake: Seeking for change to help others. /By asking the needs of others with a compromising love in response to the needs of others and pray for others.

?SPAN style="FONT: 7pt 'Times New Roman'">      A is the Apostolic Mission:  It is to pray for the non-Christian friends and obeying the Guidance of the Holy Spirit for leading the non-Christian friends or to spread the Gospels.

 

4.      Practicing:  Two or three people together to make questions for the typical DNA:

1)     What have I learned from the Supreme Being, Ruler this week? (D)

o       Each person shares his/her feedback or learning from the vices of God.

o       Praise God and thanks Him immediately right after sharing.

 

2)     What do I need to change or to confess?  (N)

o       Ask God to help you, solve your problem.

o       Intercessional Prayer: You pray for friends sharing and needy.

3)     Did I pray for non-believers? Did I help them? (A)       

o       Prayer for un-believers and seeking wisdom for helping them.

5.      Closing:  For another condition for prayer: You must Love One Another.              1 John 3:16, this is now we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.  We must to respond the following three:

1)     In response to the love of God, we have to show love, joy and peace.  Lay down our lives for brothers and sisters.  

2)     In response to the need of others with kindness, goodness and patience, that is our responsibilities to lay down our lives for brothers and sisters.

3)     In response to your duties is Selfcontrol. Then the Father will give you whatever you ask in His name, because you follow His directions. Therefore, when you ask in the prayer, you have to say, ?/SPAN>In Jesus Name?/SPAN>.  In the name of Jesus to pray, whatever you ask, each subject of questions, He will listen, he said, if you listen you are cleansed already.  So you can bear the fruits, listening to the words of God is the basic of bearing fruits.   Let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.  Therefore, you have to remain in Him and His words remain in you, then whatever you wish and it will be given you. (John 15:7), that is the effective prayer.

 

?SPAN style="FONT: 7pt 'Times New Roman'">      Jesus said, if you remain in my words and He will remain in you, in John 15:10 ?/SPAN>If you obey my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have obeyed my Fathers commands and remain in his love.?/SPAN>Dont you believe that Jesus is in the Father, and that the Father is in Him? The words He say to you are not just His own. Rather, it is the Father, living in Jesus, who is doing his work. He is our Lord; you can talk to Him any time you want.

?SPAN style="FONT: 7pt 'Times New Roman'">     Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves.  Do what it says! (James 1:22)

Conclusion:

I use the DNA Meeting, I can remember what I have learned this week, and the effective prayer is 95%. But if we have listened but not doing DNA, then I have learned only 15% of that message.  

1.      We ask many people for help, why are we not asking our Lord to help us?

2.      Even we are getting older, but we can help others.  For example, an Eagle was chosen to be a sample of Olympic, but it could not fly later, because people fed it, it became very fat and changed its shape, it is just like a turkey now, it could not fly high like eagle anymore.  So we have to do exercise, Isaiah 40:31says, ?those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.?/SPAN>Therefore, we have to focus on the Lord.

3.      The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon; ?/SPAN>They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and

green, (Ps. 92:12-14), be a righteous person.

4.      Do not complain! You try to bless others in the early morning. you will get blessing. If you curse someone you will get a curse.  The word of God is only blessing not cursing. 

Questions:

  1. What is the link between obedience and prayer (John 15:7, 16; John 14:13, 14)?
  2. What promises are made to the righteous (Ps. 92:12-14)? What does it mean to be ?/SPAN>planted in the house of the Lord?/SPAN>?
  3. Do you have DNA meeting? What is your DNA purpose?
  4. Did you bring out the following questions by sharing with your small DNA group?

1)     What have I learned from the Supreme Being, Ruler this week? (D)

2)     What I need to change or to confess?  (N)

3)     Did I pray for non-believers? Did I help them? (A)

4)     Was I greedy about money and taking some non righteous money?

5)     Did I search the over given power from God?

6)     Did I pure myself from Sex?

7)     Did I criticize others this week?

8)     Am I honest to share and confess my sins?
