Feast-on-the-tree-of-life-through-prayerElijah was a man of like feeling with us, and he earnestly prayed that it would not rain; and it did not rain on the earth for three years and six months. (James 5: 17)

The appearance of the wheels and their workmanship were like the sight of beryl. And the four of them had one likeness; that is, their appearance and their workmanship were as it were a wheel within a wheel. (Ezekiel 1: 16)

note: In James 5:17, the words ‘earnestly prayed’ can also be translated ‘prayed in prayer’. Furthermore, the inner wheel in Ezekiel 1:16 represents the praying Christ while the outer wheel represents our prayer.

In our experience, how can we know that Christ is praying within us while we are praying?

And receive the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which Spirit is the word of God, By means of all prayer and petition, praying at every time in spirit and watching unto this in all perseverance and petition concerning all the saints. (Ephesians 6: 17-18)

But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. (Matthew 6: 33)

What is the proper way to take the word? What is the relationship between prayer and the word?

“The proper prayer must be started from the Holy of Holies, from the place where the glory of God is, from the place where the Father can glorify the Son and let the Son glorify Him.”
