I.B.I.J® (I believe in Jesus) believes in prayer passionately.  We are always praying, talking to God about everything as we go about our day.  There is no need to keep things away from the Lord as he knows everything anyway.

From the first moment that we said or thought "I believe in Jesus Christ" is the moment that we had direct access to the Father.  It still blows our mind that we can walk directly into the throne room of God the Father because of the sacrifice Jesus has made.

If you struggle to pray or are not even sure where to start we would recommend creating a space to talk to God.  It can be as you walk, drive your car or work but try and get a pattern of spending time with the Lord.

When we pray we do so not just for ourselves and our own needs but also for others, friends, family, colleagues, government, leaders, Church and people who don't know Jesus right now.

We encourage you to pray specifically for these things and see what God can do.  Things will start to happen as you allow God into your circumstances and see him work by his spirit into situations.

If you have stories you would like to share of God's goodness then do please let us know.  We have created a site for all these "BOASTS" about God because we want people to believe in Jesus.

See our website here for posting the brilliant things that God has done.  WWW.KEEPBOASTING.COM

 Christian Clothing for men
I.B.I.J (I Believe in Jesus) has Christian clothing for women and Christian clothing for men which aims to let people ask about prayer. 

Our AMEN (SO BE IT) range tells the world that we pray and encourages them to pray to.  We would say that these products are in the top 10 Christian clothing brands in the world. 

The best selling Christian mens T-shirt is the SO BE IT product and many people have commented on why do we say Amen after praying to God.

Amen is an agreement in faith that the Lord is going to go ahead and answer us.  It means “it is so” or “so it be.” Amen is derived from the Hebrew āmēn, which means “certainty,” “truth,” and “verily.”

When we pray we should be acting in faith and expectant that God hears us and will act on our prayers. 

Do you pray that way and have you tried praying for other people? 

Let us know how you have go on?

NT WRIGHT explains what prayer is in this short youtube clip HERE

 

The most basic definition of prayer is “talking to God.” Prayer is not meditation or passive reflection; it is direct address to God. It is the communication of the human soul with the Lord who created the soul. Prayer is the primary way for the believer in Jesus Christ to communicate his emotions and desires with God and to fellowship with God.

Prayer can be audible or silent, private or public, formal or informal. All prayer must be offered in faith (James 1:6), in the name of the Lord Jesus (John 16:23), and in the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 8:26). As the International Standard Bible Encyclopedia puts it, “Christian prayer in its full New Testament meaning is prayer addressed to God as Father, in the name of Christ as Mediator, and through the enabling grace of the indwelling Spirit” (“Prayer” by J. C. Lambert). The wicked have no desire to pray (Psalm 10:4), but the children of God have a natural desire to pray (Luke 11:1).

Prayer is described in the Bible as seeking God’s favor (Exodus 32:11), pouring out one’s soul to the Lord (1 Samuel 1:15), crying out to heaven (2 Chronicles 32:20), drawing near to God (Psalm 73:28, KJV), and kneeling before the Father (Ephesians 3:14).

Paul wrote, “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:6–7). Worry about nothing; pray about everything.

Everything? Yes, God wants us to talk with Him about everything. How often should we pray? The biblical answer is “pray without ceasing” (1 Thessalonians 5:17). We should keep a running conversation going with God all day long. Some find the ACTS formula of prayer helpful, but there is really no special formula for how to pray in the Bible. We should just do it. We can pray under any and all circumstances. Prayer develops our relationship with God and demonstrates our trust and utter dependence upon Him.

Prayer is the Christian’s way of communicating with God. We pray to praise God and thank Him and tell Him how much we love Him. We pray to enjoy His presence and tell Him what is going on in our lives. We pray to make requests and seek guidance and ask for wisdom. God loves this exchange with His children, just as we love the exchange we have with our children. Fellowship with God is the heart of prayer. Too often we lose sight of how simple prayer is really supposed to be.

When we make petitions to God, we let God know exactly where we stand and what we would like to see happen. In our prayers, we must admit that God is greater than we are and ultimately knows what is best in any given situation (Romans 11:33–36). God is good and asks us to trust Him. In prayer, we say, essentially, “Not my will, but your will be done.” The key to answered prayer is praying according to the will of God and in accordance with His Word. Prayer is not seeking our own will but seeking to align ourselves with the will of God more fully (1 John 5:14–15James 4:3).

The Bible contains many examples of prayer and plenty of exhortations to pray (see Luke 18:1Romans 12:12; and Ephesians 6:18). God’s house is to be a house of prayer (Mark 11:17), and God’s people are to be people of prayer: “Dear friends, by building yourselves up in your most holy faith and praying in the Holy Spirit, keep yourselves in God’s love” (Jude 1:20–21).
