Tephillah

The word prayer in Hebrew is “tephillah” meaning intercession and supplication. Supplication is to ask humbly and in earnest. James 5:13~18 says; ”Is any among you afflicted? Let him pray. Is any merry? Let him sing Psalms. Is any sick among you? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall rise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him. Confess your faults one to another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much. Elias was a man subject to like passions as we are, and he prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it rained not on the earth by the space of three years and six months. And he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain, and the earth brought forth her fruit.”

When you pray you are praying either for yourself or someone else (intercession). Establish a foundation of prayer and your house can be restored. Psalm 23 says; “The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name sake. Yea though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.”

The more Jesus prayed the more He did. The disciples saw Jesus do many wonders, signs, and miracles. They saw Him pray even more. Of all the things they could have asked Him for, they understood, and asked Him to teach them how to pray.
