Ephesians 2:18 (NKJV) For through Him we both have access by one Spirit to the Father.


We, as believers, born-again Christians, gentiles, and Jews, have full access by the Holy Spirit to the Father. God made this possible through the atoning blood of King Jesus’ sacrifice on Calvary.

Your relationship with God the Father is individual and unique, so it is with your prayer life. Prayer is very personal. Let’s look at a few examples of deep prayer that can take you to the next level.

We need to have spontaneous prayer. We also need to have supernatural prayer where we pray in the Spirit. Then, there are well-crafted prayers that you think about and prayers where you write the sentence using specific, meaningful language. Prayer is for people who are committed to a deeper walk, who believe and want to go after it!

Do you value prayer and approaching God in specific ways for specific situations because you believe there’s a big payoff for that? I do because I know God wants to respond to these things. Sometimes, all you can do is cry. There are times a spirit of crying will move upon you when you get in the presence of the Lord. God cannot resist a broken and contrite spirit.

The same Holy Spirit that gave the apostle Paul and other Bible heroes access to the Father freely offers the same access to knuckleheads like you and Me.

“God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” ~John 4:24

We are to worship not only Him in Spirit but also truth. We must be authentic! Fake faith will not bear the fruit God intended for your life. This verse is about prayer. It’s about coming before God without walls, with intentionality, expecting He will honor your heart and move in your favor.

Declaration:I declare in Jesus’ Mighty Name that I have Your time and all Your attention because Your love is limitless (Ephesians 3:17-19). Thank You, King Jesus, that I have redemption through Your blood. I have complete access to You, Father. I can come boldly unto Your throne of grace. I may obtain mercy and find grace to help in times of need. It is not by my works, earthly positions, or ideas that I gain access to You but by You and You alone.
