PRAYER CONNECTS HEAVEN TO EARTH

In this manner, therefore, pray: Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name. Your kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

Matthew 6:9-10 (NKJV)

God's will is heaven on earth, and the connection between the two is prayer. You must establish your thinking in this truth: God wants you to experience heaven on earth. The effects of the curse of sin are still evident here on earth, but they don't have the right to dominate your life...unless you allow them to. James wrote, "You do not have because you do not ask [...]" (James 4:2). A lack of prayer will keep heaven from invading your earth.
