1.      禱告的第一步    進到 神面前

First step of prayer – come before God

¾    弟兄們,我們既因耶穌的血得以坦然進入至聖所, 是藉著他給我們開了一條又新又活的路,就當存著誠心和充足的信心來到 神面前。(來10:19-22

¾    Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Jesus, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us … let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith,.. (Hebrews 10:19-22)

¾     但他們的心幾時歸向主、帕子就幾時除去了。 主就是那靈、主的靈在那堙B那奡N得以自由。(林後316-17

¾     Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away.  Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. (2 Corinthians 3:16-17)

¾    人非有信,就不能得 神的喜悅;因為到 神面前來的人必須信有 神,且信他賞賜那尋求他的人。(來11:6
