You must be in fellowship prior to your Bible study, so that the spiritual information you receive can become a source, of blessing to your soul and produce spiritual growth.
4 That [hina] I may make [phaneroo] it [autos] manifest, [phaneroo] as [hos] I [me] ought [dei] to speak. [laleo]KJV-Interlinear
4 in order that I may make it
clear in the way I ought to speak. NASB
Prayer is a mandatory
result of a successful spiritual life.Prayer helps you formulate spiritual thoughts from within your soul,
thus helping in your understanding and growth and application of Gods will, to your life and to the world in general.
Prayer is your feedback
to God resulting from your learning by means of hearing His instruction, and
the repeated circulation of truth through your soul.
Without prayer, the
spiritual life is lacking and Gods response is not there.With prayer, your spiritual growth is accelerated
and Gods response is abundant.
13 "And it came
about that just as He called and they would not listen, so they called and I
would not listen," says the Lord of hosts; NASB
God hears your prayers,
only when they comply with His standards.All prayers must be offered from within the fellowship sphere, with but
one exception, and that is the prayer for salvation, which is the unbelievers initial faith in Christ.Ones initial faith in Christ is a prayer of

unbelievers (except their salvation expression of faith), and prayers from
believers out of fellowship, go unheard (rejected), as they do not comply with
Gods prayer policy.

information comes from God, and through instruction or instructors of some
type.One cannot sit on one s own porch
and simply pray for instant understanding.That will not occur in this life.
Life is not made up of
genies and wishful thinking.You ll note
that God placed you into this world to grow up and to work and to become some
sort of contribution to society.Therefore, off to school or off to work we go.
We listen, we learn, we
become responsible, we experience life s good things and life s trials and
sorrows.And, we look to God to put it
all together for us.That piecing
together of life s puzzle comes through doctrine.But doctrine comes to you courtesy of God,
because you ask either through direct prayer, or because you ask through your
desire to learn and through your wanting to know.
God can look down
through the tunnel of time and know your thoughts and intents better than you. But,
He will never force anything on you.You
have to want to learn, and then God will never withhold any truth from you.It then is left up to you to sort out your
personal beliefs from Gods truth.Doctrine helps in that effort
Doctrine helps you do
that, but only if you stick with your studies.The world will try as it may, to get you to doubt, and disagree with
doctrine. The world will try as it may to keep doctrine from you, even to the
point of removing it altogether.
Only negative volition
toward God and truth, will result in the removal of access
to Gods word from you.And when that happens, the sorrows and pains
of life become unbearable.
Therefore, pray for
your daily bread, as the Lords prayer states.But pray also for those who teach, such that
their teaching will continue uninterrupted, so that their teaching will be
objective and correct, so that their teaching will result in your own spiritual
growth and success.
without instructors, without prayers from people all over the world, our
individual lives would be empty and useless.
Now is the time to post a prayer.
End Of Lesson
Study to show thyself approved (mature) unto God, a workman that needs not to be ashamed, rightly dividing (studying/discerning), the Word of truth.
