If you want to find if you must be willing to lose it. That is what our prayers should be about.

A Hebrew View of Prayer

(#060 from Suffer Well Devotional Series©)

The Torah of Moses, the first five books of Scripture, contains the totality of Yahweh’s commandments. In it, the concept that we have come to know as prayer is identified: “tefillah.” The root of the word tefillah means: to judge, differentiate, clarify, or decide. The intention is to bring forth a desire to hold oneself accountable, to make an honest self-assessment. The belief system in the Messiah to come warranted the desire to “judge oneself” according to the precepts of Yahweh. It was a requirement for young men coming of age to be accountable to the Torah and thereby to the Creator, hence the Bar mitzvah. Bar mitzvah conveys the idea of becoming a “son of the covenant,” or quite literally, “a son of good works.”

The modern-day believer needs to take note of this perspective, for we live in the era of the Messiah who has already come. Because of His death and resurrection, more wisdom, more insights, more revelation, and more promises have been revealed to us. As a result, we are to bring every thought captive unto the obedience of Messiah (2 Corinthians 10:5). The only way that can happen is through the shedding of the self (Hebrews 12:4). Prayer was given to help you achieve the Luke 22:42 lifestyle; “Not My will but Your will be done.” When you live that way, all of His promises are “yes” and “so be it!” (2 Corinthians 1:20).

Many believers today spend too much time praying for things that have already been given, rather than considering prayer as a tool to judge oneself from the Creator’s perspective. Consider the Hebrew view of prayer and pray about what Yahweh would have for your prayer life. Above all, set aside requests made in fear, as well as those that display that your struggle against sin remains only because you refuse to surrender your “self.”

In your struggle against sin, you have not yet resisted to the point of shedding your blood.(Hebrews 12:4)

(4) “Then all the elders gathered and approached Samuel, saying, ‘Appoint us a king to judge us; just like other nations.’ But these things displeased Samuel… Samuel prayed to Yahweh… Yahweh said, ‘…they have not rejected you [Samuel], they have rejected Me, that I should not reign over them… to this very day… forsaking Me in order to serve gods [men]… listen to them and let them know how a king will reign over them and will behave toward them.’
(10) …Samuel said, ‘This is how the king you desire to reign over you will behave… he will take your sons and appoint some to serve his chariots… some will drive his horses… others will run before his chariots… you will plow his ground… bring in his harvest… manufacture his weapons of war… he will take your daughters… seize your best fields… demand a tenth of your sheep… you, yourselves, will become his servants. You will cry out, but Yahweh will NOT listen to you.’
(19) The people REFUSED to listen to Samuel. ‘No, we want a king over us. Then we will be like other nations with a king who will fight our battles.’ …So Yahweh instructed Samuel… “Appoint them a king…’” (Highlights from 1 Samuel 8:4-22)

Ask and You Shall Receive

Come one, come all; step right up,
And give your tribute gladly.
There are walls to build and roads to pave,
You want a king so badly.

Your priests and leaders all agree,
Over time their plans revealed.
“Better to pay… than to fight me,
Your best will plow my fields.”

For if the masses all agree,
Do not fret or be dismayed,
Our faces alone, your currency,
Your part, it must be played.

The entitlements offered will tempt to sway,
The most oppressed of you at heart.
“All must protect the kingdom’s way,
Each must do their part!”

Pay no attention to those foolish ones,
“Come out of her…,” they cry.
“We've read THE book; we understand.
But, give fear of man a try!”

Come one, come all; step right up,
And give your tribute gladly.
There are walls to build and roads to pave,
You’ve got your king so sadly.

“Whose image is this? And whose inscription?” “Caesar’s,” they replied. Then He said to them, “So give back to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to the Almighty what is the Almighty’s.” (Matthew 22:20-21)

“Today, if you will hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” (Hebrews 3:15)

This will help you beloved. Yahweh has already told you that the unredeemed "carnal mind" will always be at enmity with His Divine mind (Romans 8:7). "So, if the carnal mind will never perceive His mind, how can I rejoice?" you might ask. Within this brilliant question, which can only be generated from a renewed mind, is the key to understanding the answer. It is not by your own intellectual understanding, nor by human might that you can rejoice. The carnal mind can’t ever rejoice. However, as the redeemed of Yahweh, you do not have to identify with the carnal mind any longer.

How do you get there? The way is to decrease! Your "self" will always be at enmity with Yahweh as it (the unredeemed mind) always desires to increase its influence and domain. “Father, allow me to decrease and may it be Your Spirit that praises and rejoices in and through me." This is the mindset that dominates the conscience of the truly redeemed.

A predominant blueprint throughout the scriptures from “In the beginning,” in Genesis 1:1, to, “So be it,” in Revelation 22:21, is the recognizable pattern within the repeated warning to "lose" oneself. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life [carnal mind] for My sake will find it [the Divine mind]. (Matthew 10:39) For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world [carnal pleasure], and is himself [Divine mind potential] destroyed or lost? (Luke 9:25) Yet, for many, their proclamation that "I believe and therefore I rejoice," comes across with a smug pride, as if there was anything good enough in them to inspire such a declaration. The arrogance simply screams “I.” To the contrary, it is only "Messiah in you" that can rejoice and be glad; any claim otherwise resounds of “self.”

Why then can the mind on its way to expressing its full redemption praise and rejoice? Because once the indwelling of the Spirit (Ruach) has commenced, the consciousness of sin (Hebrews 9:14) comes face-to-face with a competitor; it no longer has “unobstructed” rights to itself. This idea is further elaborated on in Romans 8:5-9; “For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. Because the carnal mind is enmity against the Mighty One; for it is not subject to the law of the Mighty One, nor indeed can be. So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please the Mighty One. But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of the Mighty One dwells in you.”

This is the day Yahweh has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it. (Psalm 118:24) In other words, this is the day Yahweh has made; and only the redeemed can be glad in it.
