Standing Before A Holy God

“If you ask me to pray for you, and I am not complete in Christ, my prayer accomplishes nothing. But if I am complete in Christ, my prayer brings victory all the time. Prayer is effective only when there is completeness— “take up the whole armor of God….”
[…] “We know that all things work together for good to those who love God…” (Romans 8:28)— to those who remain true to God’s perfect will— His calling in Christ Jesus.” CHAMBERS

How important is it to be right before God before we stand before God?  James 5:16 says that the prayers of a “righteous man” avails much.  Our righteousness is in Jesus Christ.  When we approach God in prayer we should always be aware that we can only because of Jesus Christ.  We should not become spiritually lazy and think that the condition of our heart does not matter.  That our hands need not be clean … We must be mindful that when we pray, we stand on holy ground.  They say that familiarity breeds contempt.  We must be careful in our attitude towards Jehovah God.  Yes, we can cry Abba – Father, but it must with respect and the awareness that our Abba is holy and wants us to be as well.
