There is nothing as humbling as there is being a person of prayer. When we pray we acknowledge that we need help. We acknowledge that we are not self sufficient. We acknowledge that we are submitting ourselves to our Creator.
For the Christian; there is power in praying in Jesus name. We understand what they shed blood of Jesus has done for us. We understand the power of forgiveness and the power we have in being reconciled with God and therefore the relationship we have with God.
Its through the subject and power of prayer that we understand the mutual submissiveness of the Trinity. For we are taught to pray in Jesus name in through and in Jesus name God the father answers our prayers. And here in prayer we see God the father submitting to his son, “Jesus” to answer our prayers.
We see God the father submitting to the Spirit of God who takes our prayers to the Father. We see God the Father submitting himself to both the Spirit and the Son when he answers those prayers. And here in the position of prayer we find both men and women of all ages, all nationalities and social distinctions equally submitted to the Father Son and Holy Spirit.
And God makes no distinctions as to whose prayers he answers on the basis of gender, nationality or social distinction. He answers those prayers only on the basis of whose name they are praying in. Therefore we too should make no distinction on the basis of gender, social distinction or nationality as to whom we will allow to minister and in the ways that God may choose that person to do so.
