After Paul’s the glorious teaching on the spiritual blessing that is in Christ.After his exhortation on practical Christian living.And Before closing his epistle to the saints in Ephesus who are faithful in Christ Jesus. belongs to a paragraph and that paragraph started with the word “finally” or it can also be understood as “the end of my epistle”Paul was saying I want to wrap up everything with these instructions.Pray in the SpiritAt all times and on every occasion.Stay alert and be persistent in your prayer.Do this for all believers everywhere.the following in this passage of Scripture;2 Cor 14:14-15.Pray with passion and understanding.Praying puts other firstWhat does it mean to be filled with the Spirit?Does it mean possession as the way the pagans teaches?Not it meant to be filled with the word of GOD.Paul mentioned about prayer, praying or pray 24 times. (1x), (3x), (5x), (1x), (2x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x), (1x) and Heb 13_18-19 (1x).Indicative - chapters 1 to 3.Imperative - chapters 4 to 6.And there are ???? instructions.Be strong in the LORD.Put on the whole armour of GOD.Take up the whole armour of GOD.Stand - make a stand after you have heeded the call by putting on the whole armour of GOD.Belt of truth.Breastplate of righteousness.Shoes - the Gospel of peace.Shield of faith.Helmet of salvation.Sword of the Spirit.BUT when it came to v18, we are asked to pray and there was no analogy (as a part of the armour) for prayer.I think of the reason for this as an overall. That the spirit of the armour of GOD is prayer.PrayingAll prayers and SupplicationsIn the SpiritAll perseveranceFor all saints.

The meaning of prayer, since the garden of Eden till now, has not changed.

KJV 1900And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.
GOD was hovering over the face of the earth....Then He acted and did creative work.Then He created man to be like Him and have them to continue with Him in all that He had created.GOD created and He created man to fellowship with Him in all that He had created.This is the pattern of what live was meant to be.The Role of Prayer in Fellowship
