Prayer & Supplication

"Genie in a Bottle"
Many of my people treat me as a genie in a bottle - Aladdin's lamp. They hope that if they rub the lamp enough I will pop out and do their bidding. It was never this way and it never will be. The enemy has blinded my people to the true understanding of prayer and supplication.
As my people turn their hearts and minds to me, as they seek My face, pursue My ways then I come to them. But I come to heal them of their iniquities, dis-eases and sin. All and everything that separates us is "not of God".
Repentance is the key to prayer. Jesus, My beloved Son, come into the world to save sinners, not the self righteous.
All have sinned and fallen short of Me - none are righteous. So imagine how I feel when my people rub, rub, rub Me for their own desires that proceed from their own hearts. Have I not spoken and revealed that before Me "the heart of man is desperately evil and wicked"? If you are approaching the Throne of Grace in the fullness of your own heart, how am I able to give you your desired answer. Your asking is flawed because of your hearts.
If My people will call upon My name, repent of their sins - return to My ways. If you will start to understand and realise the iniquity and sinful ways of your own hearts, I will speedily answer and give you good gifts from My treasure house. It is My desire.
BUT I AM NOT A GENIE.
Repent and turn your faces to Me and seek My will and My way, acknowledge you are all sinners before Me - then my Son Jesus can and will be able to give you the desires of your hearts.
Why? because your desires will be in line and turned to My desires. You will seek righteousness before a Holy God.
Change the thoughts of your hearts and the meditation of your soul to align with My Spirit placed within you.
This is the rubbing I desire from you. Then My heart's desire will be yours.
The genie could only grant 3 wishes. What poverty!. If you are rubbing Me and we are aligned together then the goodness of your God is without end. That is treasure beyond understanding and comprehension but with God all things are possible" 

This was a letter given to me in response to my increasing concern with the some of the matters brought before the Lord in a prayer ministry. It is my great honor to be involved with this ministry and many wonderful testimonies of the Lord's grace and favor are brought forth. But some of the requests for prayer just sounded like a wish list and that was why I sought the Lord for clarification. This is His answer.

Jer 17;9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

Isaiah 55:6-8 .... Let the wicked forsake his ways and the evil man his thoughts.... My thoughts are not your thoughts neither are your ways my ways declares the Lord

Matt 7:11 If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your chidren, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

1 Tim 1:15 Here is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance: Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners--of whom I am the worst (Paul speaking)

Mark 2:When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them,They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.
