How Can We Help?

 It may be that the Bible and prayer are unfamiliar and that religion is more or less a puzzle to you. We will start our help to you by giving you advice for a beginner in Christianity. If you are more advanced, these first principles will also do you good. The first thing to do is to realize that you are a sinner and that Jesus Christ died to save you from your sins (Col. 1:20; 1 Pet. 2:24). If you are this far in understanding, you are not far from the kingdom of God.


 The second thing to do is to begin to pray directly to God whom you have offended by your sins. Confess your sins and talk to Him as you would to any other person whom you have offended (Lk. 18:9-14; 1 Jn. 1:9). God loves you! He is not going to hurt you unless you reject Him to the end, and He has to cast you into Hell because of your choice in wanting to go there instead of to Heaven (Ps. 9:17; Mt. 24:41, 46). Realize that He does love you and that He gave Jesus to save you (Jn. 3:16). He wants to help you in all the problems of your life, so take Him as your partner in life from now on.

 Read Rom. 10:9-10; 1 Jn. 1:7-9 and do exactly as you are instructed to do in these passages. You want to be saved, do you not? Would you not like to know that you are forgiven of all sins and that Jesus is your personal Savior? Then do as you are told. Forget all religions and theories of men and concentrate upon the one objective—getting right with God. No church can save you. Jesus is the Savior and He alone can forgive your sins. If you have never prayed and you don't know how, just repeat the following prayer in deep humility and sorrow for sin.



“O God, be merciful to me a sinner! Forgive me for all my sins and blot out my transgressions. Cleanse me from all unrighteousness and make me clean by the precious blood of Jesus Christ and by the power of the Holy Spirit. I will forsake sin and consecrate my life to your service and to the good of others and walk in the light of your Word as I learn it. I believe that you forgive me according to your Word. In Jesus' name I ask it. Amen.”

The third thing to do is believe that it is done and that you are a child of God. You cannot possibly pray a simple prayer like this from the heart without God hearing you and immediately answering. For it is according to His oath that He will hear you and forgive you (Isa. 55:7; 1 Jn. 1:9). 

The fourth thing to do is to start reading the Bible and having prayer when you get up in the morning, just before retiring, and as many times through the day as possible. Don't make a show out of it, but in some quiet place—at work or any place you are—you can talk to God as you would talk to a friend. Forsake sin and walk in the light of truth as you get to know it (1 Jn. 1:7).   

You don't have to be in a certain place or have a certain posture in prayer. Simply learn to talk and commune with God at home and at work or while doing anything. It does not always have to be in an audible voice. Do not think that you will be heard for your much speaking. Don't pray to be seen of men. These are the first lessons of the Christian experience (Mt. 6:5-15). There are times, however, when you should unite in prayer with others, as taught in Mt. 18:18-20; Acts 1:14; 2:42-47; 4:24. 

It will be wise of you if you are a beginner in prayer to concentrate upon what you have faith for, and as God answers prayer, ask for other benefits. Whatever you do, never ask for one thing that you are not going to believe God for and petition till you receive a complete answer. You will face obstacles in prayer. Both men and demons will try to discourage you and cause you to doubt God, but don't you do it. Believe in spite of all opposition. Fight to get the answer upon the authority of the promises, the name of Jesus, and the power of the Holy Spirit which dwells in your life as a child of God (Rom. 8:9-16, 26, 27, 34; Jude 20-24). You and God can work wonders. It is a personal matter, after all, and one can get from God anything that he wants, regardless of what anyone says. One person and God are in the majority, and “all things are possible to him that believeth” (Mk. 9:23–11:22-24). The only thing that will defeat you is your lack of faith—so be sure always to believe God without a doubt (Heb. 11:6; Jas. 1:5-9).
